When Mrs. Bedsole reached out to us about a non-traditional family portrait session stating that she did not want the standard family beach portraits, Ryan suggested the eclectic downtown Fort Walton Beach area. He had photographed there several years prior, and really enjoyed it. When the Bedsoles agreed, we were ecstatic! Why? The Emerald Coast is a mecca for destination weddings and beach family portraits, so we spend most of our time photographing along the coast of Destin, 30A, Watercolor, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach and Seaside. While all of these places are extremely beautiful and we truly never tire of it; there’s always something fun about stepping outside the routine to change things up a bit – and the Bedsole’s allowed us to do just that.
Being locals, they knew they liked the more urban look and feel of downtown Fort Walton Beach. On a mission, our photographer, Ryan, went on an adventure to scope out the scene and find the perfect location for their family portraits. Since the pictures don’t lie, you can see Ryan did a great job picking the perfect backdrops for the Bedsole’s portraits. Their clothing coordinates impeccably with the scenery in every shot. On top of that, this family figured out the “cool” factor. The different combinations they chose and the variety in their positions leaves no two photos the same.
We can’t thank them enough for letting us go on this adventure with them taking to the streets instead of the beach. It’s just another testament to us we that we really are the luckiest Destin Photographers, with the best clients because who they inspire us everyday.
