Create Magic

The Epic Destination Shoot is designed to take photo shoots and portfolios to the NEXT LEVEL.

Through amazing locations, an and serious attention to detail, the Epic Destination Shoots team of Sarah Lyons, the photographer of PictureGroove Photography and her crew research locations far in advance, to ensure the best photo shoot experience of your life. Creative lighting, styling, and assistance are all just the start of your Epic Destination Shoot experience.



In today's world, where a selfie might make you famous online, a phone simply cannot capture the images required to land a REAL publication opportunity. Through Epic, you can fill your portfolio with the highest level of quality images that will set you apart from the crowd. You'll also have the chance to work with brands that are actively seeking fresh faces, and be submitted for publication with multiple major media outlets.



Having beautiful content is an absolute must these days. Epic offers a cost effective platform to gain incredible marketing materials for a fraction of the price setting up this shoot yourself. Our brands have used images captured on our shoot to create line sheets, pitch to publications, and get featured in major magazines like Oxygen and BodyScape Magazine.

Don't just take it from us... here's what Epic Tulum model Sydney had to say about her experience.

I loved working with both of you for the EPIC shoot in Tulum, MX. It was great being around such boss ladies at the shoot. Sarah made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera and all the locations we shot in were gorgeous. Amanda suits are so beautiful. I loved both the competition suits and beachwear. 

For me, the EPIC shoot was an investment in myself. I loved doing the shoot and look forward to do it again someday!

'Ive spent many years of my life inspired by different forms of media showing beautifully displayed women, with only the thought of “I wonder what it would feel like to look like that?”

To finally experience that and be able to “feel” it came from the amazing work of Sarah Lyons and the Epic Destination Shoots. I have attended the one in Tulum as well as the Scottsdale/Malibu duo location in 2017. All I had to do was show up! If I only knew it was that easy I would of done it much sooner in life!

When you decide to make an investment in yourself, this is the only way to go. Sarah and her team are pure professionals and Sarah delivers the most beautiful imagery I have ever seen. I can’t wait for the next one!'
