Brunswick County is overflowing with breathtaking spots to take memorable photos. Here are some of our favorites.

All of May is National Photography Month. The holiday, first implemented in 1987, offers an opportunity to celebrate the impact photography plays in modern society and all of our lives. It's one of our real estate agents' favorite times of the year.

The reason for that is simple. We live in an extraordinarily photogenic place. North Carolina's Brunswick County is a photographer's dream come true, and if you're looking to snap the perfect shot for your photo album or your Instagram account, we have some ideas about where in the Southport area you should look!
