For our standard photography we shoot from dry land, working our way around the lagoon to photograph each of the sessions which gives us nice, clean, consistent photographs. We head out onto the pier to get a unique angle for barrels in the more advanced sessions.
In Water Photos
In these sessions, we get in the water with you and get up close and personal. Our photographer risks life and limb to give you some fantastic shots! These photos are limited to the advanced sessions for safety, see our front page for days and times.
