Our team is a diverse bunch with one thing in common: a love of the beach. Get to know our team. Take time to look through the photographer portfolios, watch their videos, and choose the photographer that is right for you!
Our approach is pretty simple. Our photographers want to document your family time together as it's happening. The reason we love working with families on the beach is because of the children playing in the sand, grandparents' crazy faces as they try to make baby laugh, father and son racing at the water's edge, mama stealing baby kisses, seeing the awe in kids' faces as they watch the surf for the first time... It's real life.
Our story began in 2004. In the early days, it was just Ron and his camera taking beach pictures at sunset. Over the last 12 years, we've added multiple photographers in beach communities throughout 5 states. Although the business has grown, the goal remains the same: to provide excellent customer service while delivering quality lifestyle photography through a FUN experience.
Here are a few samples from our beach photographers. To see more of our work, please visit our blog.
What’s the difference between Shore Shooters and other beach photographers?
NO LIMITS – While other photographers only give you 15 or 20 final photos to choose from, we don’t limit the number of pictures you’ll receive in your proof gallery. In addition to “posed” shots, we also like to capture candid, fun moments. We know you want to see those shots, so they’ll be included in your gallery. The more fun you have during your beach photography session, the more shots you’ll get in your proof gallery! And if you choose the digital package option, you’ll receive the high resolution digital versions of all of them!
VIEW AT YOUR CONVENIENCE – You have places to go and things to do while you’re on vacation. The last thing you want to do is spend part of your beach vacation sitting in a photographer’s office or listening to a “sales pitch” from someone trying to sell you an expensive package. With our online proofing system, you can view your proofs and order your prints whenever it’s convenient for you. If you have questions, just call or email us. So get out and enjoy the rest of your vacation!
QUICK TURNAROUND – Your proof gallery will be available approximately 48 hours after your session. If you choose a digital package, you’ll be able to download your high resolution digital images from the proof gallery. You do not have to wait for a CD or flash drive to arrive in the mail. You’ll be able to download them as soon as the gallery is available. Then you can forward the gallery notification email to family members so they can also view and download your pictures. No more passing a CD around between family members! If you choose to order prints from us, we’ll process the order and have your prints shipped in about 48 hours, so they’ll arrive at your door about a week after placing the order. If you need them even faster, we offer expedited shipping for an additional fee. (Note: Specialty items such as canvas gallery wraps, books, and wood prints take slightly longer for processing)
EXPERIENCED PHOTOGRAPHERS – All of our photographers have years of experience working with families on the beach, but we also spend the off-season working with our team to provide them with additional training and experience. We are a network of photographers who love to share ideas and learn from each other.
BEACH PHOTOGRAPHY IS OUR SPECIALTY – The beach is our back yard, so we’re passionate about beach photography and understand the (sometimes tricky) lighting techniques of shooting on the beach.
NEVER A TRAVEL FEE – If you’d prefer to have your photographer come to your location, we don’t charge a travel fee.
CUSTOMER SERVICE – Our office staff is OBSESSED with making sure every Shore Shooters client is happy!
