Welcome to my site. Hopefully soon we will be welcoming you to our lovely Emerald Coast. Let me start by giving you a little background info about my lovely wife Arbhie and I. Arbhie is a Philippine native and has an Art Graphics degree from the Philippines. We met in 2009 and have been married for 7 years now. Arbhie got her U.S. Citizenship in 2015 and has trained as a photographer with me for a couple of years and is an excellent photographer. I am an ex U.S. Air Force veteran (retired) photographer (20 years service) with over 30 years experience in photography. I am also a military brat with my father serving proudly for the U.S. Army 20 years in the infantry. My two sons, Michael and Dennis are also currently enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. My love of photography started as a yearbook photographer in high school and then I was totally immersed in imagery in the U.S. Air Force when I enlisted starting as an imagery processor on the intel side. I have worked with the finest resolution film imagery on the planet, reconnaissance SR-71, U-2 and satellite in defense of our country. I miss film but very few people are aware today of the long process involved in producing an excellent B&W or color print in film. I miss film but have happily embraced digital photography and would rather spend time in a digital darkroom than the traditional one. I can proudly say I was immersed physically and mentally in photography for our country. I started shooting beach portraits/weddings in 2003 on the Emerald Coast. We have tons of patience with family and children. Photography is our passion and profession. We specialize in beach portraits and beach weddings because there is no finer backdrop for portraits than the breathtaking colors of our Emerald Coast. We also do real estate, corporate headshots and other commercial photography assignments.

All images are photoshopped by me and ready to print. You should book your photo session in advance. Keep in mind the summer season can get very crowded and I would not like to turn anyone away. I prefer to shoot early morning and late afternoon towards sunset. The times will vary depending the month of the year. Try to schedule your session at the beginning of your stay or earlier. If the weather becomes a problem we can reschedule. We will shoot in all conditions except rain. Deposit required for weddings and large family shoots.

Sailing excursions with professional photographs/video of your adventure on the water with our 30ft Monohull Sailboat we acquired last year. I am a USCG licensed Captain with Master/Sailing Endorsement and have been saiing on these waters since 2003. The boat is equipped with all required USCG safety equipment in addition to a 4 Speaker stereo system bluetooth system, snorkeling gear, cold fridge, bathroom, paddleboard, hammock, free water just bring good spirits, and relax while I show you around the bay/gulf waters. We have room for 6 passengers comfortably. Images of your fun will be posted to your online photo gallery same day to view/order.
I recommend that you wear whatever makes you comfortable. Colors of white, earth tones and soft pastels look best against our brilliant white sands and blue green waters. Denim or Khaki pants are quite popular. Shoes are not needed. If you are a Surfer or Fisherman nut like me, I can also do special shots with your surfboard, biggest catch etc. Check out my photo gallery for the silhouette shots of skimboarders and other portraits.
