Christi Pennington | Pennington Professional Photography

I'm Christi and I am a photographer.



I try every day to make it a positive one even though most days are a crazy kind of beautiful.  I juggle family life with two small children and a photography business.


My days are filled with chauffeuring children around to where they need to be, cooking, cleaning, answering client phone calls and emails, taking portraits, and then taking a few moments in the back yard to just breath and take life in.  


I know that life won’t always be this crazy because my babies won’t always be little.  So I just enjoy the little moments as they come and photograph every moment.  


On my rare days off you will find me spending time with my children in the backyard, a date night with the hubs, or chasing my adorable miniature schnauzer.  I try to enjoy life to the fullest amount possible. 


Now that you know who I am, here is a little bit of my past:


I am a Destin Florida Beach Photographer originally from Atlanta, Georgia.  My passion for photography began in early childhood when my sister taught me how to use her Canon film SLR camera.  Every weekend my family and I would take a trip to the waterfalls of North Georgia to photograph the beautiful scenery.  


I eventually graduated from college for Broadcast Journalism with a minor in photography. After college, my parents decided they wanted to move to a retirement location that happened to be my favorite childhood vacation destination, Destin, Florida.  I knew I wanted to move as well.  


I married my college sweetheart in 2011 at the Emerald Grande in Destin, Florida.  We now have two beautiful children. I am so grateful for my wonderful husband who always supports me in everything I do. 


Having a family of my own, I understand the depths memories carry.  I am very passionate about capturing the beautiful moments in life. I make sure to photograph my own family as much as they will let me because I do not want to miss or forget one single beautiful moment.  Whether it be a vacation, beach sessionsEngagement portraitsWedding PhotographyMaternity, or Special event photography in the Destin, Florida area, I capture it all!


I cherish every day I get to work on the beach doing a job that I love.  I enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to capture your memories on these beautiful beaches.
