    Great Experience!

    What a magnificant photo shoot! We had a very large family and Charm not only managed to get us all done in groups and together, she did with style. I would say "hire her" before anyone else on the Emerald Coast!! We will call her again for sure!!

    Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

    Really liked Charm. Our pics were posted as she said and the CD followed soon after. She needs to put the CD in a bubble wrap envelope. The case was cracked, but the CD was alright. I wish she would have positioned our bodies a little bit more, Ex. Checked arms, hands, shirts, & so forth. But overall good pics!

    Thank you and really enjoyed your family. Yes the bubble wrap will be great for added protection. Did not expect that with Priority mail. Great to know. Yal did a great job and loved your photos. Hope you enjoy your photos and thank you for your tips, always well regarded. Charm Hess

    Good Time

    I would like to thank you for making our photo session a very enjoyable experience. We all had a good time, even my camera-phobic teenager. We are very pleased with our pictures. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a nice memento of their beach trip.

    Photo Shoot

    My husband, Tre and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of our family (Bradford) on June 8. They were all gorgeous, and we will treasure them forever! It was so sweet of you to send us a CD copy. We have been busy with a move since we got back from vacation, and I have not had time to place my order yet. I will recommend you to all of our friends since we loved the pictures so much! I enjoyed visiting with you, and I hope that your son is doing well. Thanks again for your beautiful photography. You are truly gifted! Sindee and Tre Guillot

    Thank you Charm for our beach photo shoot and for getting our photo cd ready so quickly. I appreciate your willingness to make sure that we got lots of great pictures of our family.

    Beautiful Photos

    We recently took our first family vacation to Destin and I am so thankful I found Simply Charming Photos. Charm was accommodating with our schedule and availability. She did an excellent job photographing our family. Since our children are so young (4 yrs and an infant) we were just hoping to capture a few shots of our family for memories. Wow, the pictures are beautiful, and far exceeded my expectations!! Thank you Charm for your amazing work! You were a pleasure!

    Wonderful Experience

    My boyfriend and I have started a tradition of going on beach vacations each year to celebrate his birthday. This year he turned 20 and we wanted to have a souvenir to last a lifetime. We had our photos done by Charm and the experience was wonderful. She worked with our vacation schedule and was very helpful in choosing a location and time. During the shoot she had great ideas for poses and also caught moments when we were just being ourselves. The photos turned out amazing, better than I could have hoped. Thank you Charm for a wonderful experience and great memories!
