"Each summer, our girls trip brings us to Savannah for a weekend of fun and fellowship and the highlight is always the Saturday morning photo shoot with Angela. I’m sure managing a group of 20 ladies is a challenge, but she always does it with a smile! Angela does an amazing job of picking the most beautiful backdrops for each shot. Her attention to detail, professionalism, and friendly demeanor make working with her a pleasure.” - Jen Price
"Angela is a talented photographer who connects with her subjects on a personal level and brings out the candor and authenticity of who they really are. She can see beauty in the ordinary and capture it in an extraordinary way and all while laughing and being as sweet as she can be. I love shooting with her and hope to continue to have a "Savannah Girls" shoot with her until I am old and gray!” - Remi Kent
Why We Love Tybee Island
Tybee Island is a city and barrier island off of the beautiful coast of Georgia. Located in Chatham County 18 miles east of Savannah, Tybee Island is the easternmost point of the state. “Tybee Island” is used to describe both the island and the city, despite the fact that only part of the island’s territory is within the city limits.
Tybee Island was temporarily renamed “Savannah Beach” to gain publicity in the 1950’s, and this name appears on official state maps as recently as the 1970’s. It’s become a very popular tourist location, particularly for Savannah residents looking for a peaceful vacation.
One interesting fact about Tybee is that it is one of the few locations that the United States Air Force accidentally dropped an atomic bomb during a training exercise gone wrong. While the bomb did not detonate, it did cause as its location was never found.
Tybee has a unique, multicultural history. It was used for thousands of years by early Native Americans, and was settled by the Euchee tribe before the appearance of European explorers. The name Tybee is the Euchee word for “salt”, before Spanish explorers named the island Los Bajos. The islands were often used by pirates as a means to hide out. Conflict over the land between the Native Americans, Spanish, and English continued for many years until the 1700’s.
Tybee’s proximity to the mouth of the Savannah River made its northern tip the perfect location for a lighthouse during the state’s early settlement. At 90 feet tall, it was the highest structure in America at the time it was built in 1736. It has been rebuilt several times, the last time in 1867. This historic site and its surrounding 5 acres are now a popular tourist destination.
Today, Tybee Island is a favorite getaway for visitors near and far. Many tourists enjoy biking the 6-mile stretch along a channel of the Savannah River or learning how to surf the Atlantic waves. The Marine Science Center offers views of diverse marine life and guided tours. There are eight hotels, six inns, and hundreds of houses, cottages, and condos. There are over 25 casual restaurants that offer fresh seafood. There are festivals such as Pirate Fest, Tybee Wine Festival, Mermaid Fest, and the SCAD Sand Arts Festival.
With its gorgeous views, delicious seafood, and fascinating history, Tybee Island is the perfect location to experience everything that Georgia’s coastal region has to offer.
