Wonderful couple photos experience

Shizen made us feel very at home and we trusted his judgement on what would look best. Just felt like walking on a beach with a friend taking photos. Keep in mind though cost is a deposit and the real cost depends on how many photos wanted but a great experience nonetheless.
Fun and Easygoing

Remember the Memories
Eric_B, Oct 2021
They owner, Frank, kept in touch very well on all information that was needed and to confirm and give us the contact info of our photographer. Our photographer was excellent! The photographer had us at multiple areas on the beach starting with dry location shots and ending in wet locations. If you want to get wet bring another set of clothes with you! It's definitely worth it. You must have it done!
