Our Story

It started with a small group of Shore Shooters photographers in Gulf Shores, Alabama getting together after our sunset beach portrait sessions. We would share our stories, learn from each others’ experiences, and help each other improve our work.

As the Shore Shooters team expanded throughout the Florida Gulf Coast, the communication shifted to an online community, but we still tried to get our team members together in person as often as possible.

In 2017, Shore Shooters founder Ron Wainscott and team coordinator April Loyle began a new business venture, Mountain Escape Photography. This new business created an opportunity to add even more photographers to our constantly growing team!

These two businesses not only share the same concept of providing photography for vacationing families, but also providing the same type of opportunities for photographers looking to network with other creatives while earning extra income at the same time!
