What to wear for your beach portrait session-photographers in Destin Florida

What to wear to your beach portrait session - Photographers in Destin Florida

What should we wear?!! That question is easily answered by this one statement, keep it simple!First of all let's start with what not to wear such as stripes, plaids, T-shirts with logos, and bold patterns. This particular type of clothing detract from the composition and should be avoided at all costs. Instead you should choose neutral colors such as khaki, white, and off-white, and of course all pastels. Try very hard to avoid the more trendy styles. I have found that some trends seem to fade more quickly than others, which detracts from the timeless nature of the image itself. Try to choose clothing that fits nicely. Loose clothing has a tendency to fold and crease in the wind. You should also try coordinating the style of clothing as well. Have everyone dress in a similar style. In other words keep it beach casual. Last but not least if you plan on spending time on the beach before your photo shoot please remember to use plenty of sunscreen. Especially on your face that way we can avoid the reverse raccoon eyes!
Peace, Mark

I don't want just anyone capturing the moments of family.. Mark is one of the best photographers that I have had the opportunity to work with. He goes above and beyond just "taking pictures." He truly does care about his clients. I would recommend him to anyone!!
Katie H
Affordable prices hi quality images I highly recommend JLP Photography
Kara S
I went to a friend's wedding in Florida and she used Juniper Lake Productions from Defuniak Springs. The photographer that she had was on the ball! He really had a keen eye for memorable moments. If I were getting married in Florida, I would definitely use this company. Not only do they have outstanding package pricing, but they take your wedding very seriously to make sure you have wonderful memories to look back on forever! My favorite picture that the photographer took was when the couple kissed on the beach. He made sure to get the sunset and water in the background, but they were the main focus in the picture! It was beautiful!
Excellent photographer, great prices, very good with kids and families. We loved JLP!!!

What can I say about this guy!! Mark is AWESOME!! He is very patient, accommodating and caught very beautiful pictures of my daughters wedding!! Hiring a photographer is always a nervous contract to get into, because events, moments and memories cannot be recaptured...But Mark is the best!! He captured every beautiful moment for my daughters wedding and we couldn't be happier with our photos! Not once have we said anything negative about them or him. Priceless!! I would hire him again in a heartbeat!! I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photographer in the Destin FL area!! I also have to add that he is very down to earth and just all around good people. Thanks Mark!! We are looking forward to the rest of the wedding uploads.

Mark - I just want to thank you so much for everything! I just went through our gallery and the photos are GORGEOUS! Thank you so very much for being so wonderful, easy to work with and accommodating our family. I know Stella was a little stinker, but somehow you would have never known it from the photos you have taken. We are forever grateful for the memories you have captured for us. I cannot wait to share them with family and friends. Thank you for sharing your talents and heart with us! 
Stacia H
Another awesome sunset picture session with Mark!!

Elaine J
I just wanted to drop a note to let you know that we were extremely happy with the photography you did for us of our wedding renewal and family beach photos.  We took one of the whole family that was taken on the beach and had it put on canvas. It is awesome!  Also, we have had some good laughs at the "jump" photo.  Lots of great pics for a very special trip!

Thank you so much.  I would highly recommend!

I highly recommend Mark to take your family beach photos. He made the whole experience fun and was with the kids!! He has great pricing, makes the process super easy and gives you all the pictures on a disk for one fee.
Genelle H
Sand Hippie Photography is the best. We have 3 children, two of which are toddlers. We were not sure how they would do, but Mark was patient and fun with them. We ended up with amazing family photos, in two different outfits with a one, two and thirteen year old!
Tonya M
Mark is amazing! He is so easy to work with!
He did our engagement, family, senior photos and now our wedding. On all of these shoots he was accommodating to whatever we needed. He has a simple way of capturing your families uniqueness. 

He is quick to respond back to you. He was prompt, professional and so sweet! We loved his laid back approach to all our photography needs! 

We will always use Mark for any of our photo needs! 

Thanks Sand Hippie

We had best time with Mark during our photo shoot. His laid-back hippie style approach was just what we needed. I never realized a photo shoot could be so much fun! We will definitely use Mark next year when we visit Destin.
