And they will bring your mind back to the place where you created memories.

  • These packages cannot be used for events such as weddings or vow renewals.
  • Due to the limited sunlight for the sessions, it is best to be ready at the exact time the photographer schedules.
  • Each package is meant for a specific number of people, please make sure to select the package that best fits the size of your group.
  • The location will be at a public beach access selected by photographer as most picturesque, photographer shoots on Highway 30A in Santa Rosa Beach.
Additional information
  • The location for the session can be at a public beach access or behind a condo, home or hotel that sits on the beach anywhere along highway 30A.
  • The photographer suggests wearing colors as they look great against the white sand for the photo session (not khaki and white).
  • Additional prints, albums, CD and more can be purchased a la carte after the session. Please ask the photographer for more details during or after the session.
  • Sometimes the weather looks intimidating, and the skies are grey--those skies can be pretty in pictures--but the first strike of lightning and we are off the beach! If the session is early on, we will reschedule. We don't take chances with lightning because there have been people in Destin who have been struck by lightning in years past. Even the lifeguards will clear the beach at the first strike of lightning.
Cancellation policy

In the event the client cancels the sitting, the deposit may go towards a portrait session on another date. Rain days will be rescheduled. If we find it necessary to cancel the sitting in the event of an emergency, the full deposit will be returned to the client minus a $5 service fee. Please be aware photographer only shoots along Highway 30A, if you are staying in Destin or Miramar Beach you will have to travel to her location.

I can not say enough how appreciative we are of Melanie and Dustin!! We took a long weekend and made the trip down from Oklahoma to relax before our son's high school graduation. Melanie and Dustin took awesome shots of all of us and left us with great photographic memories of our trip and the ending of our son's senior year. They are so thoughtful and creative. If we could award a 10 star rating, we totally would! Thanks so much Melanie and Dustin!!
