Testimonial from Tish H.

Gulf Shores Photography

We used Sun Shots Photography for the first time in 2011 when our children were ages 3, 5, and 10. From the moment we met, Maggie and Ryan felt like friends, making our photo shoot feel calm, relaxed, and fun. Our very serious middle child was all smiles throughout the photo shoot. Even when the baby was tired of cooperating, they brought smiles and giggles back to his face. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that I did not have to come up with any ideas for poses or groupings. My husband and I got to relax and enjoy the entire time as they did all the work. Most photographers will ask, "What is it you want?" or "What did you have in mind?" Maggie and Ryan already know what we wanted…great shots of our family having a fun time together in beautiful Gulf Shores. I was excited to see them again in 2014. We had another wonderful experience. They are lovely people who provide the highest quality service and product for a very reasonable price. I could not recommend them more highly.

Testimonial from Nick K.

We had our family pictures taken while on vacation in Gulf Shores by Sun Shots Photography, and I can't tell you how happy we are with the results. Not only are our pictures ADORABLE (and I'm not kidding the pictures are so awesome), but Maggie and Ryan were incredible to work with. We have two young children (5 and 2 years old); our oldest son is on the Autism Spectrum. We have gotten professional photos taken in the past and they have ranged from disastrous to good, so we have a good frame of reference when it comes to "photo shoot" experience. Maggie and Ryan make a great team. They not only had my children laughing, but they had them belly laughing. My kids had a blast. Maggie and Ryan are masters at what they do. I think from now on we can only vacation in Gulf Shores or at least near it because I want Sun Shots to take my family's pictures every year from now on. WOW, what an awesome experience, and on top of all that I don't have enough space in my house to display all the beautiful pictures they took, honestly!

We could not be more pleased with our experience with Sun-Shots and Maggie and Ryan. We appreciate the time and attention you gave to making our shoot completely relaxed and enjoyable. The quality of the pictures and the slide-show exceeded all my expectations and we had fun in the process. I would not hesitate to recommend you guys to friends and family. To anyone planning family beach pictures, you will not be disappointed if you work with Maggie and Ryan. Can’t imagine anyone being more professional, courteous and attentive. Thanks again!

We have always thought about vacation pictures on the beach and looked at various photographers. We were so pleased with working with Maggie and Ryan. They were very accommodating in the planning process as well as coming to our resort to take the pictures. They worked well as a team and my family commented on how the session was actually fun. The only problem was in choosing which pictures to purchase as there were so many beautiful ones to choose from!

Sun Shots Photography is the best business there is to have your family photographed at Gulf Shores! Maggie and Ryan are awesome photographers! Maggie called several days before the shoot to make sure the weather was right and to give me directions and time where to meet them. My twins (17) enjoyed working with Ryan and Maggie with their shoot. They made my twins feel at ease, made them laugh and best of all the pictures were the most professional and beautiful ever taken by a photographer! It was very difficult not to want to purchase every picture that was taken. I highly recommend Sun Shots Photography. The best in the business!

My family and I used Sun Shots recently on our vacation. We had sunset pictures taken and Maggie and Ryan were absolutely awesome. My daughter hated the sand, and they totally made it work. Our pictures were beautiful! I definitely would use them again. They definitely pay attention to details and they earned every penny.

Sun Shots photographed our family in August. We had a morning session, so it was bright and early and with two toddlers in tote, Maggie and Ryan Caver where at our resort waiting for us. The had a lots of "bells and whistles" to get the kids smiling at sunrise. Not to mention this was our first encounter with sand which our kids were a little skittish of. They spent the time needed to get the perfect portraits. They are photos that we will cherish for ever. We hope to make it back to Gulf Shores next summer and will definitely be contacting Sun Shots for another photo memory. Sun Shots is the real deal!

Testimonial from Tammy J.

Sun Shots did a very good job taking pictures of my family! I liked the way they took their time with my children. My oldest has a disability and I have a 5-year-old. So it took more than a couple shots. I recommend Sun Shots to any family with small children and a child with a disability. Thanks!!! Love our beach pictures. Will definitely be back. Good job!!!

The best of the best! Two small kids(under 4) in tow and a husband who's not big into pics and these guys captured so many great photos! Captured the real "us" and that's exactly what we asked for! Professional and fun! We did the sunset photos but would try to sunrise as well! Going back for sure!

We recently had pictures taken of our family of 11 while at Gulf Shores. The kids ranged from 3-9 years old. Ryan and Maggie were amazing! They were very good with the kids and captured amazing photos of the big group as well as our immediate families. I couldn't have been more pleased with Sun Shots. From the photo shoot to the finished pictures, Sun Shots is top notch!

Ryan and Maggie of Sun Shots were great to work with. Our little guy was 18 months old, and they were incredibly patient and tireless in getting him to cooperate. We were more than pleased with the quality of the images. Without question, we would have Sun Shots do our beach portraits again.

We used Sun Shots for family pictures on the beach. At the time our daughter was 18 months old and did not want to cooperate. They were wonderful with her and got some great pictures of everyone! I would highly recommend Sun Shots!

Fantastic experience and beautiful pics! We couldn't have asked for a better beach photo session. Ryan & Maggie were great with our 2yo, as well as the rest of the family. We are looking forward to having them take our family beach pics again this summer!

I would highly recommend Sun Shots Photography for your family beach pictures. Ryan and Maggie are such a fun couple and have attention to detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our photo session on the Gulf Shores beach. We have placed several orders and they are incredibly prompt every time! And fast with phone calls too. They were referred to us by a friend and i would recommend them as well.

My family & I visited Gulf Shores Easter weekend. We love the beach. So what better place to have a family photo made. Ryan & Maggie were great. They worked very well with my kids and made it a fun experience. Of course, the pictures turned out wonderful. The next time we visit Gulf Shores we will definitely schedule another session. I would totally recommend Sun Shots Photography to anyone.

Sun Shots Photographers are great with kids and take fantastic pictures on the beach. They are easy to work with and keep the family laughing so you can capture natural smiles. I have used this photographer twice and was impressed by the immediate sneak peaks. The finished products are amazing!

Testimonial from Mark G.

After driving for 11 hours on the previous day with our 2 year old son and my wife's 80 year old parents, we weren't sure how how much energy and patience any of us had or how well our photo shoot was going to work out. Ryan & Maggie did a great job entertaining our 2 year old and turning our photo shoot into a wonderful experience, capturing memories of our trip to Gulf Shores. Maggie was energetic and creative and brought along lots of props to keep our son's attention. We were a little worried that he would go a little wild--- and towards the end of the shoot when he was getting tired Ryan captured great photos of him running after birds and feeling the wet sand fall through his fingers. This was our first family vacation and we will treasure these beautiful photos the rest of our lives.

Testimonial from Aimee M.

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and our first time having family photos taken on the beach, and we could not be happier! Maggie and Ryan were absolutely fantastic to work with all the way through, from the planning to the session to the ordering. They were especially great with our kids and got some super smiles out of them at our sunrise session. The photos are amazing and exactly what we had hoped for – they really captured our family and the beauty of the Gulf Coast! We would highly recommend Sun Shots to anyone, and will definitely be coming back to them on our next trip!

Ryan and Maggie were first class all the way from the booking to the photo shoot. Our whole family throughly enjoyed both the shoot and the pictures! Easy to work with and professional, while still fun! You can't ask for more in a vacation photographer! I have recommended them many times since then and will continue to do so!
