Santa Rosa Beach Florida Photographer

Santa Rosa Beach photographer

I love being a Santa Rosa Beach photographer. Between the emerald waters of 30A, and the out of this world sunsets/sunrises it’s a beach photographers dream.

Located in South Walton county Santa Rosa Beach Florida is a fun laid back coastal community. Whether you are a local or are down visiting on vacation our amazing community has so much fun to offer your family.

I’ve grew up on Florida beaches, so it was only natural when I opened my photography studio in 2007 that my focus quickly became beach photos.

The biggest question I get is where is the BEST place to take pictures in Santa Rosa Beach? So I wanted to share a few of my favourite locations so you can pick what is the best spot for your style.

I think it goes without saying that the beach is the magic of Santa Rosa. Our Emerald coast is lined with amazing coastal beach towns all along South Walton. Depending on the day our gulf water is anywhere from a stunning emerald green to a deep blue. Each Town has its own unique look and feel.

Rosemary Beach is like stepping back into a different world. With West Indies architecture, and a laid-back atmosphere to match it. Trade in your car for a bike or walk along all the rosemary lined pathways. Rosemary’s town centre is all about shopping and eating good food, and having family times on the large lawn spaces. Rosemary is my favourite 30A town to photograph all around town.

Alys Beach is a luxurious coastal town with stunning architecture. It makes me think of what a luxurious greek villa would feel like. Walking throughout town there are so many beautiful nooks and crannies to explore.

Seacrest beach & Seagrove Beach are easygoing beach neighbourhoods with a fun but relaxed shopping centres.

Seaside is a little piece of heaven. Located in the middle of 30A seaside is all about upscale coastal living. Now while traffic and parking can be a problem at times, I advise you ditch the car and rent a bike to enjoy your beach adventures. Seaside has amazing streetcar dinning, and so many fun locations to shoot around town.

Sandestin & Miramar Beach are bustling coastal towns full of amazing food and shopping and so much for the kids to do. Just outside of Destin so you will never get bored if your the family that likes to

Edan Gardens State Park

Edan gardens is just a few miles from the beach and is packed full of southern charm. A large southern style mansion is surrounded by huge oak trees dripping with moss, and stunning southern gardens. Perfect for weddings and portraits the light and textures of the trees are breathtaking.


Watercolor Gardens

Watercolor is where I spend most of my time on 30a. I just love all the coastal houses, and the beautiful flowering gardens. If you love nature you will love Watercolor! You step off the beach and enter into this upscale yet laid-back town. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is amazing. You stroll along flower-lined paths, hearing kids playing in one of the many grassy areas. But what is the most special part of Watercolor to me is the trees. I cannot tell you what the species of trees are but I call them knotty trees. Once you walk in the gardens you will see every elbow on the branches have knots.
