Rosemary Beach Main Street from a photographers view…

Main Street in Rosemary Beach is filled with life including some of the best restaurants, boutiques, salons, and even a toy store for the kiddos. The architecture is vibrant yet classy and is the perfect place to stroll with your Rosemary Beach Photographer for family or senior portraits in Rosemary Beach!

As a 30A local, I love to visit Rosemary Beach for a date night but my kids even love the Sugar Shak or GiGis, a toy store!

The Pearl Rosemary Beach is also located on Main Street right next to the Eastern Green where a lot of weddings are held. Just south of the green is the beach access giving you a short walk to experience the breathtaking sunsets of 30a.

Most families love to snap a family portrait in the road on Main Street. We also love to stop by town hall and take a few photos on the seating area with the lush greenery and main street as our background.


Rosemary Beach Town Hall, a great place for your family portraits!

Town Hall is located in the heart and center of Rosemary Beach and is beautiful inside and out. Weddings are frequently booked here and family’s often take portraits around the beautiful gardens surrounding town hall.

about Rachel
your Rosemary Beach Photographer

Full time photographer since 2014. Mom of two. lover of sunsets.

As a mom of two littles, I know how quickly our babies grow up. It also helps that I know how to make the 2 year old giggle (and I know alll the songs), how to chase around the rambunctious 8 year old boy, and even how to make the teenagers smile.

Add in 10+ years of photographing families, understanding beach lighting, and constantly upgrading my equipment, you receive the top quality family portraits and wedding galleries that are breathtakingly beautiful and enjoyable to create.
