Lynn was AMAZING! While she is a great photographer she also knows how to keep a time schedule and keep everything moving smoothly throughout the day. I would recommend this photographer to anyone who is getting married in the Destin, Florida area.

Your the best!

We truly could not have been happier with Lynn at White Sands Photography in Destin, Florida. SHE made our wedding what it was above and beyond just taking really fantastic photos of our special day!!! From the first stages of planning she helped put together a detailed itinerary of exactly what pictures and events that were taking place. She listened to everything that was important to us to capture on our big day and was extremely professional at handling both of us having divorced parents and making sure pictures went smoothly. We needed more staff to help our guests at the reception and to help transition things ....she jumped right in filling any gap that may have been there including helping me repin my hair!!! Again, ABOVE AND BEYOND!!! I could not have been more grateful for her. She was so fun and able to lighten up the mood to get some really wonderful shots!!! We will continue to send people her way and hope to go back for family pictures in the future!!!!

P.S. Thank you sooo much Lynn!!!! You are THE best!!!!

I decided to use White Sands Photography after comparing many other photographers in the Destin area. I loved my choice! I worked with Lynn and Kelly for the months leading up to my wedding and she was professional and very flexible in what we wanted to do for the wedding. The prices are VERY reasonable compared to many of the companies in the area - my husband and I picked a higher-end photo package and it was still about half the price of many other companies. Kelly was our photographer the day of and I couldn't have picked any better to take our pictures. She was fun, flexible and creative with the shots. The photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I would highly recommend White Sands Photography to any prospective bride.

Wedding pictures were VERY important to me and I searched high and low for the perfect photographer. Lynn and Kelly were absolutely fantastic and our wedding pictures are stunning! I get so many compliments on them. My husband hates having his picture taken and they were very patient with him. They both gave clear direction on what they needed us to do and although the pictures were fast paced I never felt rushed or like we were running out of time. Our pictures to view were posted quickly, I felt like we got a lot for our money and our wedding album is gorgeous. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you to White Sands for capturing my special day with breathtaking photos!

Lynn did a great job with our engagement, bridal and wedding photos. I would reccommend her services for your wedding. She was very flexible with making my appointments for my bridal pictures and rescheduling them once my husband and I moved in the middle of planning our wedding. She had great ideas for the pictures and places we went to take them.

Lynn was on top of everything! She was very responsive in any feedback that I had or suggestions that I wanted. She also took charge so that I could relax and have fun at the wedding knowing that she would be responsble for what we discussed ahead of time. My trash the dress pictures are amazing and not only captured the moment but it was a lot of fun too! Definitely take advatnage of those as well and you will love them.

Lynn and her team at White Sands Photos are awesome!

What initially attracted me to White Sands Photos was the quality of work and the fact that they are upfront about their prices on their web page. I was sick of other photographer saying “its an investment” or being vague. The price is beyond reasonable for the quality of service that you get and the attention to detail you will receive from Lynn.

Tip: book early because they fill up fast during wedding season. Lynn has been around for a few years and knows what she is doing. She gave me some great advice leading up to the wedding to ensure that I had the best photos. For example, the planner was going to set up the arch for the ceremony facing the ocean. Lynn suggested shifting it to be on an angle so the sun wasn’t in my face the whole time. Now I don’t have a bunch of photos of me with my eyes hardly open during the ceremony!

Lynn and Kelly made all of the guest very comfortable and kept the family photos running very efficiently. They both kept the whole night on track very well. Lynn is a fantastic photographer, but she really should consider expanding her business to be a full service wedding planning/coordination house. She knows everyone in the industry, she knows how a wedding should run, and she can keep things moving along in a professional way.

We had two photographers, a photo booth and trash the dress. The photo booth is a new service that White Sands is offering and I highly recommend it. My guest LOVED it! It was so much fun at the reception. My grandmother got in four times. Lynn was very quick about getting the photos from the photo booth on her Facebook page and then I tagged my guests in them and they went crazy! ☺ It was a fun little thing that really made our reception special.

I was really looking forward to the trash the dress. I know some brides might be hesitant to get in the water with your dress, but it is worth it! I think this is really where Lynn shines. She takes you to this place with a perfect sunset and rocks about an hour before sunset. What I was pleasantly surprised with was that we had about forty-five minutes before we got in the water to take photos on the beach with my groom and me. The night of the wedding is so chaotic and those photos are nice, but these photos are so much more relaxed. It really gave us a chance to be ourselves. The photos of us in the water are a great mix of sexy and fun. Lynn even did our trash the dress on her wedding anniversary and I’m so glad she did!

Finally we were beta testers for a new service, videography. Lynn brought two young, talented and professional videographers with her and they did an incredible job. They are trying to break into the business and ours was one of their first weddings. We were so impressed with their work and professionalism. They have a bright future, but I will let their work speak for itself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=C5pErH_eXuM
My only regret is that our party was suppose to end at 10:00pm because that is what the noise ordinance in Destin is, but we kept going until about 1:00am. I wish Lynn and/or Kelly had of been there later to capture some of the late night shenanigans.

I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend White Sands!

Great photographers! Lovely people! Absolutely stunning photos! VERY EXPENSIVE!! They also take like forever to edit the pictures. It took two weeks after the wedding to get the digital copies of our pictures, not including the photo book that came with our package. Its been a month and we're still waiting on that. Aside from cost though, its a great company. They are very professional but friendly. They love what they do and it shows. The amount of experience these photographers have is astounding! I am pleased so far with the pictures I've seen. I just with the price wasn't so absorbent! But the photos are the most important reminder of your day, so you get what you pay for.
