Thank you so much for your interest in our studio, we look forward to working with you and your family! So, let's dive straight into the fees and what all is inclusive with services:

 

Family Beach Portraits! 

Destin Photo offers several different options when booking  your Photo Session. If you would like to just pay for your session fee up front and worry about printing and/or copyright release down the road.

 

BASE SESSION FEE

The base session fee is $175.00 for the first initial household, and $35.00 for each additional household. (For example, the first household includes: mom, dad, & children. A Second house is considered to be a second couple, or parents and children, and so on. Destin Photo does not charge any additional fees for grandparents to participate in the sessions with their families, unless they still have children present in their own household). 

 

Base session fee includes the cost of the photographer coming out to meet, engage and take photos on the beach of your family with their camera and equipment. It also includes a Private online proofing gallery, that you are free to share digitally with friends and family. Images in the proofing gallery are watermarked. Destin Photo offers a full range of print options with your images, or the ability to purchase your High Resolution Copyright Release so that you may print at your leisure.

 

COPYRIGHT RELEASE (ALA CARTE)

The High-Resolution Gallery with Copyright Release starts at $225.00 for a single household, Each additional household copyright release costs an additional $75.00.

NOTE: If our customers choose to order their Copyright Release or Prints before their images are published, Destin Photo will discount their total order by 20% (this excludes your photographer session fee). We will keep your gallery online for 90 days from the time they are published. After that Destin Photo  will archive your gallery. So your gallery is available to purchase, or print from  at any time.

 

TURNKEY PACKAGE (Full payment required at time of Reservation) 

For our best total savings we offer our highly popular turnkey package. This package must be chosen at the time of making your reservation. This option includes both your session fee and your copyright print release of your unwatermarked images so that you can both share and print at your leisure.  
Package Price: $325.00 plus tax. A savings of $75.00! (we only charge tax on the edited images. Session fee is not taxed) 
Total Package Price with Tax: $337.25 for a single household
Plus $85.00+tax per addition household (tax charged on 60.00 per household)

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR SESSION
Destin Photo's Beach Photo Sessions usually run roughly 90 minutes. This time flies by incredibly fast.  During the session  you can expect that approximately 40% of your session will be posed to ensure we capture the "portrait" that everyone is after in a family beach portrait - so for example with a multi-household session, we would start with a posing of EVERYONE participating in this session; our photographers always capture an image of mom and dad, another posing will be any children, both a siblings shot and individual shot,  The posing goes very fast – as we only have "so much time" (especially when working with children) that we will be able to keep their attention. **Destin Photo specializes in large groups and children of all ages. We do not put a posing cap or time cap on your session. We will shoot until we are happy that we have created and captured everything that our clients are looking for and vice versa. Our job as photographers is not only to create high-definition photographs, beautiful composition & posing of the images, etc... but is also to create a very relaxed environment to bring out everyone's personalities, and have a lot of fun as we enjoy our beautiful beaches. There certainly is never any pressure to perform while Destin Photo Photographers are behind the camera, and all of our clients tend to say, "Wow! That was so easy, and a lot of fun too!" (Even the most camera shy family member.)

 

 

The other 60% of your session is candid - This is when we believe we capture some of the best images from our beach portrait sessions. Destin Photo will bring out beautiful props for the children to play with, including an antique wooden sailboat, seashells and even mermaid tails (mermaid tails do require a session upgrade). During our session we chase seagulls, build sandcastles, and even go on a scavenger hunt along the beach picking up beautiful seashells and starfish as we capture all the excitement and fun through our lenses.

FULLY EDITED GALLERY
Our clients can expect between 75, and 80 fully hand edited photos with a single household session, and between 20, and 25 additional fully edited photos with each additional household that joins in.

When we edit your session, our professional editors cull through every image shot and remove obvious objections such as eyes closed, hair in the face, bad facial expressions, etc. Only THE BEST images are then color corrected if needed, and touched up on a case by case basis. Unlike some studios who charge for basic retouching, we are happy to touch up bags under the eyes, crows feet, scow lines, blemishes, scraped knees, missing teeth/braces, etc. (I want you to absolutely love everything about your pictures and be proud to show them off!)

 

From there, you and your family are happy to place orders directly through the studio. We offer everything under the sun in regards to photographic products - all of the highest quality and standards within the printing/photographic industry.

Newborn Session!

Weddings!

 

Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding (Pssst!!! You save when we shoot your engagement session too!)! Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to work with you on your wedding day! 

Our style is very modern & chic, we shoot from a journalistic & creative style full of fun and laughter. You can expect lots of candids as we document every detail of your wedding; as well as all the traditional formals. As a moment arises we love to find an abstract or contemporary frame to really capture the ambiance and mood of the day. Our studio specializes in telling life's stories of love and laughter through the artistic vision of photography. Our clients and us tend to have a lot of fun and we pride ourselves on always being able to create a very relaxed and comfortable environment - even in the most "stressful" of situations. There is certainly never any pressure to perform while we're behind the camera - after all it's when you don't think we're watching that the best images are taken.

All packages include the best, edited images captured on your special day available for viewing online. (Physical proofs and/or proofing books are available a la carte.)

 

We price our weddings based on "Coverage Time". After ten plus years of photographing weddings, we have found that this allows our brides and grooms to easily stay within their budgets.

Our clients understand that this is a permanent outcome. Paints will not come out in cleaning.. But hey you're only going to wear it once, right?
