Destination Portrait Session - Jessica - Ireland - Dark Hedges, Dunluce Castle & Giants Causeway

Destination sessions are quickly becoming the most popular type of session that we offer. We travel all over the world to create amazing memories for our clients, particularly for senior portraits. Over the summer we had the opportunity to travel to Ireland and meet with Jessica to do a portrait session. Ireland is an amazing location for your portraits. The weather is always hit or miss as we had some days full of rain and others without a drop. We just roll with it and make the best of the situation.

On this particular day, the weather cooperated until we finished the shoot and the skies opened up. But at least we were able to finish and get some amazing portraits for Jessica. We visited some of the most iconic locations in Ireland, including the Cliffs of Moher, the Dark Hedges, the Giants Causeway and Dunluce Castle.

For Jessica’s portraits, we decided on Northern Ireland and some of its most visited locations. It just so happens that many of them are filming locations for the Game of Thrones. Amazing images AND seeing some filming locations for one of the most popular TV Series… Double Bonus!

Enjoy the portraits of Jessica and let us know if you would like to join us on one of our destination portrait sessions. These are perfect for engagement session, senior portraits or even post/pre wedding couple portraits. Create memories that will last a lifetime AND get amazing portraits for your home!

Senior Portrait Destination Session - Costa Rica

A few weeks ago, we headed to the jungles of Costa Rica for a week long adventure with some of our seniors to create some amazing senior portraits for them. If you have seen our work, you know that we love to offer these destination sessions for our high school senior clients. Its a great way to create an amazing experience for the seniors as well as create some amazing images for them. These trips are an experience of a lifetime. 

We landed in San Jose and drove to the west coast of Costa Rica and stayed around Playa Ocotal. We stayed there a few nights and photographed on the beach in the area. We then headed back towards San Jose and stayed at the base of the Arenal volcano for the remaining nights. Overall, it was an amazing trip and we created some great memories for our clients. 

This trip also gave us an opportunity to show how we use the Spider Holster when we travel. This belt is simply amazing. It allows us to carry our camera without a strap getting in the way. It also allows to free up our hands to move lights, fluff dresses and just interact with our clients, without a camera being in the way. We use the Spider Holster on every shoot and it makes our jobs 100x easier. Thank you Spider Holster for creating an amazing product for us to use.  You can check them out here! :)

Shannon | Charlotte Senior Pictures | Destination Portrait Session

Senior pictures are all about the experience. We strive to provide an amazing experience for each and every one of our senior clients. Part of that experience is providing the opportunity to travel for destination senior portrait sessions. 

We recently took Shannon to Charlotte for senior portrait destination session. Being located in Central Florida, we obviously dont have any mountains to photograph in. For her destination portrait session, Shannon wanted mountains in her background. We found a cheap flight to Charlotte, so we decided to do her senior pictures there as part of her destination portrait session. Let me just say that Charlotte is a beautiful city. We are definitely going back in the future. Shannon is a blast to photograph, so the combination of the two allowed us to produce great senior portraits for her.

Traveling for your senior portraits is a great way to get an unique session. We arent limited by the local area and we are able to create some amazing senior pictures for our clients. Not only does it allow for great portraits, it also provides our clients with an experience of a lifetime. Many have never traveled much, so this gives them the opportunity to do something they rarely get to do... and did I mention it allows from some AMAZING pictures. Below are some of the pictures from Shannon's senior portrait session in Charlotte. 

We are putting more emphasis on travel sessions for 2018. Contact us if you would like information on how you can join use for a portrait session experience of a lifetime.

Aubrey and Lindsey | Iceland Senior Portraits | Destination Session

Aubrey and Lindsey joined us on a recent trip to Iceland for their senior pictures. Destination portrait sessions are becoming a big thing in the photography industry. We began offering them about two years ago. They provide an amazing portrait experience that you cannot get with local sessions. Imagine the whirlwind of excitement of getting on a plane, landing in a place you have never been and traveling throughout the country having your portraits taken. It is certainly a blast and an unique experience.

Iceland provides an amazing portrait opportunity. Everywhere you turn is another great location. You can see why Iceland has become one of our favorite countries to visit with our clients. I am pretty sure its impossible to take a bad picture there. We will definitely be doing more trips to Iceland for portraits.

Enjoy some of our images from the trip

Samantha and Brian | Wedding Pictures in Hawaii | Hawaii Wedding Photographer

We recently traveled to the Big Island in Hawaii to photograph Samantha and Brian's wedding around the Kona area. How can you say "no" to a wedding in Hawaii, especially one that involves a helicopter? This was a wedding photographer's dream come true.

We travel A LOT for our business. We have photographed destination sessions in Paris, Iceland, Stockholm, Aruba, Barbados, Italy, etc, but there is something about photographing a wedding in Hawaii that rises above the rest.

We have known Samantha since middle school. So we were excited when she asked use to be her photographers. As wedding photographers, we have the opportunity to photograph amazing clients each and every year, but we rarely get the opportunity to photograph a wedding for someone that we know very well on a personal level. It makes the entire process much easier. Wedding photography is so much easier when you know the clients personally, which is why we strive to build a relationship with each of our clients. 

Photographing a wedding in Hawaii is pretty easy to be honest. There are so many different spots to photograph that its a wedding photographer's dream. It is not very difficult to get an amazing portrait.. Add a helicopter (Blue Hawaiian) to the mix and you know the photographs will be AMAZING!! This is the kind of wedding that makes other photographers jealous :)

The day following their wedding at a private waterfall, we took a trip to Volcanoes National Park on the south side of the Island of Hawaii to photograph Samantha and Brian some more. We wanted to take advantage of the erupting volcano (Kīlauea), so we headed out to the lava fields to create some amazing portraits for Samantha and Brian.

Denver Engagement Session | Michelle and Todd

A couple of months ago, I met Michelle and Todd in Denver and did an engagement session for them. Being a photographer from Florida, I get tired of the beach and other scenery that Florida offers. I have always wanted to do a session in the mountains and snow, so off to the mountains I went.

I may be the most unlucky photographer when it comes to travel sessions. Leading up to this session, the weather was in the 70s and 80s for weeks. The day that I arrive it drops to 30 and snows 5 inches. While the snow was welcomed, the cold that accompanied it, not so much. Its pretty difficult to smile and look happy when its pretty cold outside. I was perfectly warm under my jacket, but I cant say the same for Michelle and Todd when they took theirs off for the pictures. I applaud them for being troopers and pushing through when they probably didnt really want to be taking pictures... But we got some awesome images!! :)


Something that is unique about our photography services is that we have the ability to travel for sessions with our clients. This allows us to provide unique images to our clients that arent really possible when we stick to local locations. If you are planning a trip somewhere, let us know before you go and we can possibly join you for a session :)
