Customer Reviews and Comments
I can now see why sweet Sharon has a 5.0 rating...she is amazing! Great with her camera and so very easy to work with. I'm so happy I chose her to photograph our wedding. Definitely was a blessing to work with her. Thank you Sharon! Carl Thompson
If we could only take her everywhere we travel......An hour and she became a "must have" anytime we're near the beach. Booked for next year and our daughters wedding. Allen Cannon
Oh the Prints are fantastic! It was worth every penny invested working with OTB and we had fun, smiles and so much laughter. Group of 37 rowdy kids and adults - I can't imagine anyone else pulling off this gig. Lighting and posing assistants and Sharon's easygoing personality.........Every photo received was a memory to cherish. We couldn't be more pleased. Two families in our group rebooked immediately for their own personal time with her. Professionalism and fun. 5***** Catherine McMaster
Sharon was amazing to work with and her work is impeccable. She was very sweet and she made us feel like we've known her for a lifetime. I would recommend her to anyone.
Loved loved loved our session! We had a wonderful time with the most wonderful ladies!
We are thrilled with our photosession! Thank you for making the experience so easy and laid back. The kids have been talking of nothing else. Leslie Gallagher-Memphis, Tn
Lindsay Graham-Charlotte, NC We contracted OTB to provide our wedding and reception and were delighted with the results. Not only was the photography exceptional but the manner-flow-easiness of working with her created a sense of love we will remember - it shows in the photos. Thank you so much from all of us Sharon
Kristin Wood.....Va What a great way to get this group together - AND SMILING! Sharon had us all laughing and the kids? They were so BUSY with her ideas and poses time flew by and the group had a great time. Flexible, inventive and very enjoyable - something for everyone. We'll be back Sunset Beach!
Our session was so much fun the kids wanted to hangout longer - a first for our group of 8 - ages 2-45. The pictures were heartbreakers - the kids, my husband......Her online gallery was a thoughtful presentation of our family and gave us a generous package at a wonderful price.

Nancy Geddings Taylor reviewed OTB - On The Beach Photography by Sharon L. Maple — 5 star
Sharon was wonderful working with my family (5 adults, 2 children, 1 dog) during Thanksgiving week of 2017 at Sunset Beach. My family members don't like having photos made AT ALL, but Sharon was so comfortable and laid back that everyone actually had fun. And they all love the pictures! The shots were amazing and are something we'll cherish for a long time to come. I highly recommend OTB Photography with Sharon.
Booking OTB has been a family tradition for 4 years. Each time a fresh experience for our group of 16 + one on the way now. Online Gallery was a hit with teens, tweens and the adults. Our ride home was great because we text and talked and downloaded photos from the online gallery. We are spread out thru Texas, Georgia and Tennessee and appreciated being able to access these memories, order what we want and how we want them. Booked again for next year.......Calvin Brady
I contacted Sharon and her fabulous team in planning my vacation at Ocean Isle Beach. I wanted to get some photos that captured all we were celebrating this year: my sister's graduation, my Mom's birthday, and my nephew's last vacation with us before he is enlisted in the USMC. From the time I called and talked to Sharon, to the time we received the photos, the entire process was OUTSTANDING. Sharon and her staff were so friendly and fun. On the first call she explained all of the options and tailored a package that met our needs. She found a great location and was in contact with us several times before we arrived. She also came up with a contingency plan in case of extreme weather. The photo shoot was very fun. Sharon and her team were great with doing a combination of subgroups, suggesting poses, and definitely wanted to make sure that we got the different combination of groups and the types of pictures that we wanted. You would think that a photo shoot may be boring, but we laughed and joked as we did our photos. Sharon and her team told jokes, put us at ease, and got excellent photos that made even surly pre-teens look like angels. We LOVED the photos, and having the options to have them on a DVD was an excellent choice for transport. I would HIGHLY recommend Sharon and her team, and I will definitely be calling On The Beach Photography the next time we want beach pictures. I am a HIGHLY satisfied customer. Thank you Sharon and team for capturing great memories we will treasure! Jason Gilbert and Family
We made our annual visit to Sunset Beach in December to relax and found On The Beach Photography thru a resident, and now a friend. The weather was sunny and warm and so was the staff of OTB. The online gallery worked out great for the two older (and married) kids and families. And we loved access to our photos 24/7. Lynn, our photographer was being trained by Sharon, the owner so we had two for the price of one- smooth, calm fun with the best backdrop we know. Thank you for inspiring us. You're a gem! - Camille Kirsch
This isn't work - THIS is FUN! Portraits for the living room, smiles and laughter for every other spot in the house. The children thought she was "cool" - We think she's fantastic and loves the work and the beach. Professionalism at it's best. Tyler Mingh
After having our family photography session with OTB we've asked them to supply our Corporate offices with some of the unbelievable sights in the area as well. Sharon's in her element and the skill level is exemplary in both photos and presence. George Miller
"The Wedding Photography provided by OTB was exquisite. My fiance' and I were nervous when the Team showed up in Raliegh, NC Sharon helped us relax as if we were just having a friendly - and yeah, relaxed conversation. We could be ourselves and enjoy our day. Thank you so much for the professionalism and unbelievable skills you provided. Both set of parents were in tears when we presented the "Parent Albums" to them. A splendid memory-Jake and Leslie Adkins
Just opened the canvasses. They are so realistic. Especially the one of me and Spencer. I could not be more pleased - Margie Watson - Wytheville, Va
We love working with Sharon and her team. We've used OTB Photography the last 2 yrs and couldn't be more pleased. Excellent quality photos and on top of that she is one of the warmest, genuine/nicest people in the biz. Very sweet and very patient with all the toddlers we had in our session (five this year under 5 yrs old)! She's a gem! Sara Vines Watson - Wytheville, Va
Our group of 72 people was a challenge but they pulled it off. Sharon is a FORCE of nature - friendly, inventive, and skilled. Had everyone laughing and paying attention. We'll be back in the fall and OTB is on our schedule. Allen Forster, FL
We used another much MORE expensive photographer last year but went running back to OTB this year. Their products are high quality and the sunrise on Ocean Isle Beach was just the ticket. My wife bought 3 acrylic blocks and keeps changing the photos. Best $$$ I spent this week. George Danner
I knew that viewing these photos would bring happy tears- and I was right! They are lovely - the lighting and setting and details are exquisite. I will look at these more when I return to Virginia.
Thank you for your expertise and for keeping the shooting relaxed! Kathryn Pugh, Va
