    Excellent experience!

    Top notch experience with Cheri. She drove 2 hrs to be with our family to take our beach photos. Prompt, quick response to the initial inquiry. Quick turnaround and the quality of photos was outstanding! Plenty of different shots taken making it very difficult to choose from. Thank you Cheri! Would highly recommend Cheri's photography services!

    Amazing service and beautiful pictures!

    We enjoyed our family/first birthday shoot on the beach. Cheri's patience was greatly appreciated. Communicating back and forth with her to make this exactly what we wanted was so easy! Of all things, I was most surprised by the turn around. We had our pictures the very next day after the shoot and they were beautiful! I would very much recommend Cheri, you will not be disappointed!

    Best beach photographer experience, ever!

    Look no more! Cheri is an amazing photographer! We've hired different beach photographers for our annual family summer Destin vacations over the last 10 years. This was our first year to find and hire Cheri. She was awesome from start to finish. On time to the session, great with all of us throughout the session, and best of all, we had our digital copies 6 days after the shoot!!! I've waited months with other photographers. Oh, and the photos turned out better than we could have ever imagined! We cherish them already! If you want a completely worry-free beach photography session, look no more! Cheri is the best, and we look forward to using her services every year!

    Wonderful Memories!!

    We are so glad Cheri was able to take our family pictures. She was great and professional, our little grandson was not very happy during our session (he's 1), but Cheri was able to get some great shots anyway. We are very pleased with the outcome and so glad we had them done. Thank you so much for giving our family great memories!!!!

    Cheri was very friendly and easy going. She was happy to do what we wanted but had good suggestions of her own. We had a large group and she was efficient and took a lot of pictures in a limited time.

    Amazing experience and beautiful photos!

    While planning our vacation to Gulf Shores, I came across the TripShock website and Cheri's photography session specials. Knowing that we were going to have family pictures taken later this year, I decided to take a chance and booked online after looking at her website. I called her 2 days prior with the number provided by TripShock and set up a meeting time and place. I could not have been happier with the results!!!! We booked the 45 minute session at sunset for a family of 4 with a 4 and 6 year old. It was the perfect amount of time and Cheri knew many tricks to get great smiles out of my 4 year old. The pictures are beyond amazing and brought tears to my eyes! Cheri allowed us to creat amazing memories that we will never forget!
