Beach Photography Basics
We meet at the Public Parking Lot across from the Marriott Grand Ocean an hour before sunset/sunset. If you wish to meet at another location, Please contact us to confirm. We have a 5-minute walk to the public beach. Since the Sunrise & Sunset differ throughout the year, the setting changes with the season. In the summer, Sunset begins shooting at 7:30 pm, while fall is 6:15, and winter can be as late as 5:30 pm. A normal session last about 1 hour or more. A party of 5 takes about an hour, but a party of 10 and take over an hour. Please let me know about large groups, so we can have a second photographer available. The normal session included the following settings, but if you have a request please let the photographer know and we will make it happen.

I encourage parents to bring buckets, sunglasses, or any other beach equipment. Please leave your purses in the car or at home and I encourage everyone to wear beach flip-flops since we will be kicking them off. It's the beach, no reason for good shoes. If you would like to bring your pet, as long as we abide by the laws of Hilton Head Island, you are more than welcome.
Since we will be outside and take advantage of the natural light. Shooting is dependent on the weather, so a little flexibility is needed. Plus I can't guarantee the weather or the tides to be perfect for your shots. If the weather is inclement, we can reschedule, or try our very best. Wind and tides are our biggest challenges.
