One of the more interesting things that we get asked to do here at Clearwater Beach Portraits is to photograph an actual marriage proposal. The groom will call and tell us where he plans to propose and we go out and photograph it, while pretending that we are not photographing it.
Last week we were waiting on the beach for the couple to arrive when it started to rain. Not a big rain, light at first. We stuck it out and shortly the couple arrived for their stroll on the beach before dinner at the Sand Pearl Resort. She must have been wondering why he insisted they go for a walk in the rain!
We shot so many images, despite the rain! Here are just a few of our favorites!
All the couples friends were hiding out at the beach bar behind the resort and came running out to congratulate..
At this point, the rain was really starting to come down so we headed for cover and had a few drinks while we waited for the squall to pass…
The great thing about summer storms in Florida is that they don’t last for long! A short while later we were back on the beach for group shots..
… and then some time alone with the couple!
The best thing about being a family portrait photographer on the beach in Clearwater is the people that you get to meet every day. We see it all, from small families to giant groups, across multiple generations… and we get to share a few moments with each one.
One of the best ideas you will ever have is to get a multi-generational portrait shot on the beach in Clearwater. Trust me on this one, I just recently had my own family portrait done with my parents, their kids, their grandkids and the great=great-grandkids. It’s hanging in a place of prominince in my home as well as the homes of every person in the photograph. Family portraits bring you joy every day!
This recent session was all about fun time with Grandma and Flying Kites! Check it out! Kites were a first for us and then kind of like the guy who invented wheels on luggage, we thought…. Why didn’t we think of this sooner! Genius Idea! We loved it, had a fantastic time photographing this session and hope you love it too. Kites + Clearwater Beach Photography = AMAZING Clearwater Beach Portraits!
Spring Break 2015 continues with sessions being photographed daily! Here are some of our favorite images from last weeks Clearwater Beach Photography sessions! We’ve been busy creating family portraits nearly every single night this month, and staying on top of finishing each session to get them done within seven days or less. Hope you enjoy these latest images. As always too see more, be sure to check out our facebook page as we update that even more frequently than our blog. https://www.facebook.com/ClearwaterBeachPortraits?ref=hl
We’ll see you at the beach!
We did 17 family portrait sessions at Clearwater Beach just in the week of Thanksgiving alone. Three of which took place on Thanksgiving day! What a great week. Even though the weather was spotty some days, we got it done and made some awesome memories. Some of the families we photographed this year have become a kind of tradition for us, which makes it an even more special time of the year. It’s great to visit with and photograph the same families year after year around the holidays, and make new friends. December is a busy month too, so keeping the blog with new Clearwater Beach Photography becomes a low priority because our main goal is to get pictures edited and delivered in a timely manner.
It’s not to late to schedule your holiday family portraits at the beach. It’s actually the perfect time of year with everyone visiting and in town for Christmas. We’ll see ya at the beach! Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!
