June weddings… we love June weddings… we love them more when they are indoors though. lol It gets ridiculously hot here on the Florida and Alabama coastline during the summer! Ladonna commissioned us to photograph her June church wedding near Chipley, Florida. When she said she would also like an engagement session, I was thrilled! Engagement sessions are a perfect way for us to get to know each other before the wedding. For this engagement session, we traveled to downtown Chipley, Florida. It was  perfectly clouded day and we had the train depot and downtown all to ourselves. Hope you enjoy a peek at Tim & Ladonna’s engagement session. We look forward to their wedding this summer!

At Knowles Portrait Design, it’s all about the experience. From planning your portrait session until your portraits are displayed on your walls, we want every step to be a fun and enjoyable event! With that in mind, we offer a little something extra that’s include with our Artist’s Signature session… an in person ordering session. Those who haven’t worked with us before or have yet to experience custom photography may not know what this is. We thought we would take a few minutes and define it in a little more detail.

What is in person ordering?

An in-person ordering session, sometimes called ‘in person proofing’ or ‘view & order session’ is an extra-special experience and added value just for you. Just a few days following your portrait session, we return to you at your home, condo or beach house for you to view and order your portraits. We will plug directly into your HDTV and present your portraits in actual size! We will bring sample portrait sizes, products and offerings. You can touch and see, in person, the things we offer.

What does this mean for me?

This means we are there to help you every step of the way, to answer any questions you might have. We can go over all of your options to get you exactly what you want in the very best value possible.

I’m only in town for a few days, can I still have an ordering session during my stay?

Absolutely! For our visiting clients we offer the ordering session the day following your portrait session. In certain circumstances it is sometimes possible to have your ordering session later the same day.

Our current and returning clients LOVE this extra touch during their custom experience with us. We love seeing their faces as they view their portraits for the first time!

What a beautiful day in Rosemary Beach Florida! We loved photographing the Whitworth’s extended Family. Their nautical themed outfits provided the perfect compliment to the stunning Rosemary Beach backdrop. Enjoy a peek at their portraits.

Dani booked their couples session during their vacation on the beach. The day before our session I got an email from Cory saying he would like to surprise Dani… with a ring! So we planned out the surprise proposal and he popped the question. I think we got the perfect reaction to his question! 🙂

Ms. Madison drove over from the Florida Capital city of Tallahassee for her senior portrait session with us on Panama City Beach. Though we worried over the weather, it turned out to be beautiful and serene!

Ms. Lani was a pleasure to photograph. All the way from Ohio, Lani and her family commissioned me to photograph some beach senior portraits for her the week following Christmas. We were blessed with beautiful, though chilly, weather here on Panama City Beach.

I was thrilled with the Killebrew family contacted me for family portraits. They own a home in Rosemary Beach and are friends with the Johnson family, who we photographed last year.

The Killebrew’s expressed that they wanted something a little different and they wanted to show the flavor of Rosemary Beach in their portraits. I think we did just that!

Enjoy a few from the Killebrew family session in Rosemary Beach, Florida…

We were so excited to have the *real* Santa & Mrs. Claus coming to the studio that we did a little pre-booking post on our Facebook page. (In case you aren’t on our facebook, go like us... now! 🙂  It was no surprise the sessions completely sold out nearly immediately! We called the North Pole and were able to reserve Santa for some extra time. Then those time slots filled up as well!

So when Santa come by the studio to say hello and take a few photos last week and we’ve found we could keep him away from the North Pole just a little longer. We have a VERY limited number of time slots left available.
