It's easy to see why Elizabeth Braley is one of our favorite models to shoot.

Not only is she beautiful, she is confident, professional, so much fun on set and always committed to getting that perfect shot.

We collaborated with Elizabeth to plan and execute this gorgeous swim test in preparation for her first Miami Swim Week. (She is currently represented by MP Mega Miami - see her portfolio here.)

While breaking down the barriers that confine the stereotypical 'model', Elizabeth is without a doubt one to watch. Her classic yet fresh beauty - backed with personality to spare - is impossible to ignore, and we are super excited to watch her career grow. Follow her on Instagram to keep up with her adventures!

We recently shot a cool and funky studio session with musician Sam Bassham, and we are pretty excited about his photos. 

Sam has the type of energy that proves true any possible laws of attraction, and it's no wonder these images turned out as awesome as they did. Keep reading to learn more about Sam and his music - enjoy!

A Navarre, Florida native, Sam is a classically trained vocalist and musician.

In 2015, Sam auditioned for the popular singing TV show “The Voice” and made it to the final executive producer audition, which was weeded out from roughly 75,000 other artists over a time period of 6 months.

Sam plays many instruments including guitar (his main instrument), bass, ukulele and piano. He is currently performing as a solo singer/songwriter. His sets include everything from his originals ("Falling For You") to soulful acoustic covers from artists such as The Killers, Birdy and John Mayer.

Coastal Elopement

Quanteria & Brandon

Elopements are some of our favorite sessions to shoot as photographers. They are romantic, simple and always full of love. It's refreshing to see all the wedding frills stripped away, and witness two people make a decision to walk together on this journey of life in love's rawest form.  Sometimes less is so much more.

We shot a beautiful, intimate elopement with Quanteria & Brandon at Henderson Beach State Park in Destin, Florida. The natural, pristine terrain could not have been a better backdrop for their shoot. It was a beautiful summer evening, giving the beach a golden hour glow as the sunset approached. 

 

 

Hello! // Fitness & Lifestyle: Henley Dowdy by dylan carney

Welcome to the DCP Blog!

We are excited to share a glimpse into our lives/work as well as offer a "behind the scenes" perspective on our creative process in anything from beach photography to studio work. This is something we have wanted to do for a long time and even though life is crazier now than ever, what better time than the present?

To kick things off,

we wanted to share a small Fitness/Lifestyle story we did with the lovely Henley Dowdy ( pre-professional dancer and model - see more of her work here) last weekend at The Grand in Sandestin. Our inspiration/mood board consisted of pages from the Athleta catalogue and FP Movement campaigns, and some others with a similar vibe. We were limited on time and therefore opted for minimal styling, and I personally love the simplicity of these easy-to-wear looks which included basic staples from Lululemon and Reebok.

Although it was a very bright and hot Florida day, the hotel has a ton of massive trees and tall corridors giving the entire area a natural filter, and it was perfect. We absolutely plan to shoot at The Grand again. 

Looking forward to sharing more soon!
Until next time...
