We are John & Natalie and we have been together for over 20 years. We started McCain’s Creations Photography back in 2009 shortly after my wife gave birth to my amazing, beautiful twins Ava &Alexis. We live here in Destin, Florida and are members of a local church. I love capturing memories that last a lifetime through our state-of-the-art photography equipment. As you will see in some of our work, I can be a little diverse and offer a slight variety of style, however I have that artistic craft of lens capturing and redefining that moment I take the shot and turning a photo into a masterpiece. I am a destination wedding photographer and love shooting individual and family portraits. We at McCain’s Creations are driven by our mission and that is to be the best photography company in the market. We stand behind our work and our client service. Visit our website here:
