Locations – 2023


Many of our beautiful locations were badly damaged in Hurricane Ian and are still recovering including:

Sanibel, Captiva, Bonita Beach and Wiggins Pass State Park

You will find the list of locations being used in 2023 shorter while the beaches are built back and reopened.

Because all of these locations have beautiful waterfront, I am showing you more unique aspects to each of them. Of course, all sessions include many images in front of the surf, which is the same on all our beaches. 


Tiger Tail Beach | Marco Island

In my opinion the BEST location on Marco Island and worth the drive from Naples

Features: tall grassy pathways, sea oats, tree canopy over a boardwalk, wide tree lined pathway, sandbar in low tide

What you get here you don’t get on other beaches: Coastal background variety and no building obstructions behind us. This is the BEST location on Marco without crowds. Ideal for large groups. Multiple areas to shoot.



Naples Pier Area | Naples

The streets near the pier and beach to the north of the pier

Features: Quaint Naples town vibe and public parking. Walk to beach, shoot under pier at the end of the night.

What you get here you don’t get on other beaches: View of the pier, the feel of Olde Florida. This is a very crowded area and can be hard to park and work around people.




Marco Island South Access

Features: Rock Jetty, wide beach, tourist vibe, more crowds and buildings

There is one public lot near the beach that can be full during season, parking can be tricky. If shooting on Marco without private beach access, this is my second choice location (Tiger Tail #1).

This beach can get very crowded in season and on weekends and is completely lined with high rises. There is a long walkway from the street to the beach that I use to shoot on while heading down to the beach.



Residents Beach – Private Marco Island

Residents Beach is by permit only. If requesting this beach please be ready to alert the gate I am coming in or I will park and ride with your family.

Beautiful green space near parking area, wide beach to shoot on as we walk down to surf. There are buildings in the background here, but it is a beautiful location with low crowds.

Private Beaches

Hotels and Beachfront Property: Excellent when the beaches are not overly touristy (think Vanderbilt beach area) or crowded with chairs and umbrellas

What I look for: A beach that is quiet without tons of beach goers, some green space or other backdrops between the hotel/condo/beach like a courtyard or boardwalk that will add some variety to our shoot.


I am a Naples Photographer, but I also shoot on the beaches of Fort Myers, Sanibel, Captiva, Marco Island, Bonita Springs, and Port Royal, Florida
