Customer Reviews and Comments

Took us 2 summers before we could get our group of 23 together in Sunset Beach.  We were blown away by Sharon's generosity and patience.  She rebooked our large group, provided each family with candid and group shots AND shared an abundance of laughter with us all!  Turnaround time for edited pics was about 3 days!  Great to work with such a talented, responsible business owner.  T.

Thank you Sharon for your patience and understanding as we tried to get our family together for beach photos. Neither a hurricane nor rainy weather stopped you from taking awesome photos. Not only did you have great ideas, but you also listened and readily agreed to our thoughts about where to take some of the photos. We love the results, both candid and posed. Having these wonderful memories with our five grandchildren and their parents will be a blessing.  Donna Raspa

Within 10 minutes she had us laughing, smiling, and enjoying the session.  Ocean Isle needs more like her - easygoing, lots of ideas, and a laidback style- We'll be back next year.  Mark Maddox

What a lovely afternoon with the OTB team on Holden Beach, NC   The wedding was beautiful, heartfelt and it shows...... We would recommend them to anyone wanting services.  It seems Sharon has an amazing manner generating laughter, smiles and wholesome goodness putting us all at ease-you can see it in each photograph.  These memories will last a lifetime.  Ellen McDowell-Landrum

Exceptional!  Easy to work with - 12 Adults, 9 teenagers, and 2 babies...The photos were great and meeting her was a tribute to Ocean Isle Beach, NC  Toby Middleton, Canada


Prints are fantastic!  It was worth every penny invested working with OTB and we had fun, smiles and so much laughter.  Group of 15 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

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 hang out 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.  Emile Bresch-Townsend, New Hampshire  

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.

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

"The Wedding Photography provided by OTB was exquisite. My fiance' and I was 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 sets of parents were in tears when we presented the "Parent Albums" to them.  A splendid memory-Jake and Leslie Adkins


We love working with Sharon and her team. We've used OTB Photography in 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
