Before

  • Contact Us. Our booking page questionnaire will get you started. Remember to include your email, mobile #, headcount & let us know where you are staying.
  • There is a $100 session retainer required to book your session. The Retainer is non-refundable for any reason other than rain or inclement weather.

Let’s get your name on the schedule!

  • We work on a first-come, first-serve philosophy. If you want a specific time or day, we encourage you to book early. There is only one sunset per day, and during peak season, they will book up.
  • Our photographer will arrange to meet your family at one of our parks unless we have discussed using a private beach. There is a $50 travel fee for Fort Morgan and Perdido Key during the months of June July and August.
  • Now that your session is saved (Contract signed & Retainer paid), you are ready to go. Undoubtedly, the portraits will be worth the investment!

You are making your photo experience fun & Seamless. 

During

  • Your contract will include an estimated start time, photo location address, and other pertinent info regarding your personalized session. There will also be a few suggestions about sunscreen & wardrobes. For a more detailed list of helpful hints, see our FAQ page.
  • Let’s talk photos! Beach Shutters will text you on photo day, after checking the forecast, to let you know that all is good for your session. If you do not hear from us by 3 pm, please call or text 251 228 0172.

We will see you at the beach!

  • The weather usually cooperates. Even rainy summer afternoons turn into beautiful sunsets just in time for photos. If we get rained out, we will ask you to meet for sunrise photos the following day, if weather & schedules permit.
  • Your balance will be due on or before photo day & can be paid when we meet for convenience.
  • As we part ways, your photographer will give you an estimate on delivery status. The estimated delivery will be anywhere from 2 days to 8 weeks, depending on the time of year. Click here to see an example of a photoshoot in progress.

We Believe in Quality, not Quantity!

After

  • Beach Shutters will select, crop, enhance, and hand-edit your images. (unedited & rejected images will not be shared as they are unfinished works of art and do not represent Beach Shutters Photography).

Where the Magic Happens

  • All selected images are professionally edited in Adobe Lightroom to deliver the best possible end product. The following items are included in the price of your photo package: Brighten eyes, whiten teeth, remove unwanted background items (people not in your party, trash, signs, etc.).   Please browse our portfolio to see that our examples speak for themselves.
  • Photos are taken in RAW format to give us the best possible finished images. Your photographer will convert all images to JPEG after edits.
  • Your photo gallery & release will be emailed via a downloadable link. All images are in a High-Quality Digital format (.jpg) and are yours to keep. The waiver allows you to print at your local print shop or with any online service of your choosing.

Expect a Beautiful Gallery filled with love, laughter & family connection.
