I’ve been witness to Alys Beach construction and town evolution since the beginning in 2004. As the principle photographer of Alys Beach construction, architecture, sales, rentals and events, I thankfully get to enjoy every nook and cranny of Alys Beach, and the secluded courtyards of every home are unique and always surprising.
I was honored to be asked to contribute three dozen photos for the book, Reflections On Seaside by acclaimed architect, author, and urbanist Dhiru A. Thadani. The book celebrates the 40th anniversary of the town of Seaside, the place that has inspired countless designers, architects, urban planners, and everyday citizens in the search for the ideal hometown. The work is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Visions of Seaside, published in 2013.
I had the pleasure of documenting construction by ground and aerial photography from ground breaking to final touches for this impressive home at 146 Montgomery Street which recently sold for a South Walton record price of $14,000,000. “Mont Blanc” in Seagrove, Florida is comprised of 5 Bedrooms and 5 baths at 9,051sf.
Pushing the boundaries of both architectural design and fortified construction, this idyllic home combines quality and artistic inspiration into a refined finished product that has no parallel in Northwest Florida.

Most homes in Rosemary Beach are based on island architecture with traditional features. Original town architect Richard Gibbs told me he only allowed natural materials like wood and metal because everything about the town should develop a patina. And for that I’m grateful, even if constant maintenance and replacement has to happen.
This cool modern home on the north side of Scenic 30A stands out among the typical Rosemary Beach homes. It’s sleek and modern and cool. 20 East Water Street is not typical, but it is still classic Rosemary Beach.
The owner designed his home in Seacrest with personal sketches and inspiration from decades of travel. Gracing the structure are amazing art pieces and artifacts from across the globe. Some of the home’s features were created to complement the art.

It was an adventure photographing this amazing lakefront home in Blue Mountain Beach. It is a modern home built for entertaining.
The setting is in the heart of South Walton on a private 1.58 acre Oasis with 211 feet of waterfront and unobstructed panoramic gulf views on Redfish Lake, one of our rare Coastal Dune Lakes.
The home was designed by architect Dan Mueller and built by Kyle Bengston in 2011 and has 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and 3 half baths. Enter the impressive foyer that flows seamlessly to the expansive living room, bar and entertaining area, and into the award winning gourmet kitchen with Neff custom cabinets and a full caterer’s pantry and grilling porch.

The first floor master wing features his and her full bathroom areas, coffee and beverage bar, gas fireplace, authentic Japanese soaking tub, private dressing areas and oversized walk-in closets with separate entry for staff.
There is a private guest wing on the first floor in addition to an acoustically designed media room.
A private elevator or beautiful custom built staircase brings you to the second level of the home with three bedrooms and adjoining balconies.
Equally as impressive as the home itself, the outdoor space and natural surroundings are breathtaking. The outdoor area offers a gorgeous four-sided private infinity pool, top of the line hot tub, recently upgraded private lakefront dock, fire pit, outdoor kitchen, and covered alfresco dining area.
The home offers a 3-car garage, two driveway entrances and parking for up to 30 vehicles on the expansive driveway. This waterfront sanctuary has countless upgrades; Chad Horton Landscaping, water filtration system, circular driveway, tankless hot water heater, whole house generator, 2 refrigerators, 3 dishwashers, 3 freezers, 4 ice makers, and air conditioned storage rooms to name a few. Enjoy Red Fish Lake, the Gulf, 30-A’s 19-mile bike path, shopping and dining right outside your door.
