Sunset Photography in Orange Beach

There is no better time of the day for beach portraits than a sunset in Orange Beach, Alabama.

The Gulf of Mexico provides Turquoise water.  The clouds reflect a pastel sunset and the gentle breeze sets the tone.  With these conditions, we can expect the best sunset photography in Orange Beach!  I will admit that there have been days that I was skeptical of the photo conditions.  This day was not one of them!  As far as the eye can see we have the colors of the rainbow reflecting in the sky and the water.

Here comes the bride!

Brittany & Kirby decided to get married at their favorite beach in Orange Beach.

Brittany’s grandfather was the officiant.

This couple makes the drive from Indiana as often as possible.  You see, Brittany’s grandparents live here in Robertsdale, so this is her home away from home.  It only made sense to say her vows on the beach in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach, Alabama.  She had a sweet surprise when she told her grandfather about her big plans.  He had always wanted to get ordained.  He did just that in order to officiate his granddaughters ceremony.

Her “Happy Place” was the perfect location for sunset photography in Orange Beach!

God painted the sky with pastel colors as the blue faded to pink, then purple.  I don’t know when I have witnessed a prettier sunset!  As a photographer in Orange Beach, we see the sunset most evenings.  This one was exceptional, to say the least.

The kids enjoyed playing in the surf after the vows.

Not only was the sky perfect, but the kids were also!

You know when there are kids involved in a ceremony, you never know what to expect.  These two kiddos were little angels!  They were right on cue and even paid attention to the vows and posed for beach photos afterward.  Mom and dad were so proud!

It was a great opportunity to update the family photos.

Wedding vows on the beach are beautiful indeed.

It can be a gamble to plan outdoor photos at sunset.  The weather in Orange Beach can be unpredictable, but in this case, it was perfection.  Someone must have been living right to get such an awesome sunset sky on their Big Day!  Congratulations Kirby & Brittany!
