Classic Sessions

“The AKP studio is inside a large, historic home on a corner of Pensacola’s downtown.  It features a huge wrap-around porch (complete with a swing and rocking chairs, of course!), a lush garden, and is located on a block that features giant live oaks, beautiful cottages, picket fences, and more.”

“Melissa and Kyle decided on a romantic night ceremony in a huge barn that Wedding Walls decorated for the couple. It was magnificent! They did exceptional job covering the interior of the barn with beautiful white draping and gorgeous chandeliers with twinkle lights. It was a job well done for sure!”

“Hannah and Lee live in Birmingham, Alabama - and it was such a treat to travel there for their downtown engagement session!  I met them at their home, where I had the pleasure of meeting their sweet pup, Laila (I also met their life-size cutout of Keanu Reeves, who was waiting just inside the front door, but that’s a story for another day).”

“For years, I’ve been wanting to photograph a wedding at the Richards DAR House in downtown Mobile - this is the venue where my husband’s parents were married years ago!  Well before I lived on the Gulf Coast, I remember seeing their wedding photos and loving the stately tradition that the DAR House exudes - white lace ironwork on all the porches, solid brick construction, columns, and of course, giant live oaks protecting the entire property.  So, when Hannah and Cody told me they chose the DAR House, I was thrilled.”

“Laurel and Austin’s Classic Engagement Session was the first time I had the chance to meet them - and they are totally and absolutely lovely.  We spent a lovely hour in the area right around our downtown Pensacola studio - the AKP studio garden put on a gorgeous show to match this beautiful couple!”

Ellie + Don and Bea + Tom Wedding

“I have photographed A LOT of weddings over the last ten years as a wedding photographer, but this was the very first time I had ever seen or photographed a DOUBLE WEDDING!!  Not only was it a double wedding - the brides are sisters who had been with their now husbands for a combined 50 years before getting married!!! I can’t imagine I will ever photograph another wedding quite like it!”

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen Photographs

“Bridesmaids and Groomsmen bring such joy to a wedding day! They each bring loads of laughs, excitement, tears, and hugs to a couple’s wedding day. Whether the photographs are formal bridesmaids and groomsmen portraits, candid moments during the wedding reception, the best friends and closest family of our AKP wedding couples deserve beautiful photography to capture their important role.”

“Anyone who has been to our downtown studio will probably recognize this first look location!  We had initially planned to do their first look and formal portraits in a nearby park, but the blustery day meant we had to come up with another plan FAST.  I love shooting at our studio and of my favorite things about it is the deep wrap around porch. I knew the porch would allow us to still be outside, but covered from the rain.”

Liz + Andrew Wedding

“You know I love details, and Liz and Andrew’s wedding was full of them!  I especially loved that all of her personal details had stories behind them, imbuing them with layers of meaning far beyond the objects themselves.  I think my favorite was Liz’s pearl necklace. It was a gift from her grandmother, but as I listened, I heard the whole story.”

Melissa + Mike Engagement

“I was so excited when Melissa called me last week to say that her awesome fiance was going to be in town for a surprise visit! Mike is a flight instructor in California and I had not met him yet. To say these two are smitten is an understatement! They are so sweet and so natural with one another which made my job super easy! Mike is just the best and extra blessed because he also gets to be a Papa to Melissa's amazing little girl Emma! These three make a gorgeous trio and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding in February.”

Taylor + Taylor Wedding

“Both Taylors incorporated COLOR (also, can we take a minute and address the adorable fact that they were both named Taylor!).  Taylor’s wedding gown was the prettiest shade of blush, with layers of tulle making it feel absolutely dreamy. The other Taylor wore a beautiful gray suit with burgundy bowtie that perfectly matched the dahlias in the florals.”

Night Portraits

“We love when get the opportunity to shoot with a couple at night! Some of the most amazing photographs result from the creative use of light in the dark of night. A great night shot really puts the couple in the ‘spotlight’ and highlights their loving embrace and gaze. Enjoy this random sampling of night shots from over the last few years.”

Sunset Couple Portraits

“A Gulf Coast sunset always brings a certain feeling to a wedding day. Like weddings, no sunset is the same and each brings love and warmth to not only the photograph but to a moment shred between our bride and grooms. Take a moment and indulge in some of our loveliest couples portraits from our favorite time of the day!”

“We love to photograph the details of a wedding! The rings that symbolize the bond between the couple, the place settings that set the scene for a fabulous celebration, the details of great personal importance that people want integrated into their special day… all of the details make each and every wedding unique.”
