Sonja Revells Photography – Destin Photographer

My background in photography is long and extensive, and goes beyond the days of digital. Currently the majority of my work is focused on wedding photography but I am also in the process of pursuing more commercial, advertising and stock photography work, as well as other genres of photography. I have been shooting professionally for 8 years but over the course of my life for close to 17 years.

My work has been featured on MSNBC.com and I have won several major awards for my work when I was a news photographer/photo journalist for Media General. I also have a background in fine art with an emphasis on photography while I attended college and have held two solo exhibitions of my travel photography in addition to also winning many awards for my travel and fine art work.
