“ I think engagement sessions are the best way to get to know my couples before the big day, so I was thrilled that there was room in my schedule to fit them in before they headed back home!  They share my affinity for silly socks, laughed at my bad jokes, and I am super excited about photographing their Portofino wedding this spring!”

“Emily and Brian are two of the loveliest people I have had the opportunity to work with in my 10 years as a wedding photographer.  They are funny and kind, down to earth, and head over heels for each other.  Every moment I have spent with them, from my first meeting with Emily, to the last hug at the end of their wedding has been an absolute pleasure.”

“Debbie and Mike have been married for 30 years! My first reaction to meeting them was that they seemed like a couple of teenagers in love. Seriously, what an amazing thing! They recently made Portofino Island Resort their second home and thought there was no better place to renew their vows and celebrate a great life together. Mike’s sons were involved in every aspect of the renewal and I could tell it meant the world to both Debbie and Mike.”

“The Emerald Coast can be such a trickster when it comes to weather and their wedding day was a perfect example of this. It rained ALL day, EXCEPT for a few amazing moments when we got to shoot their couple’s portraits on the beach. Mercedes had been dreaming of wedding portraits on the beach WITH overcast skies (because she’s artsy like that) and luckily, the sky delivered.”

Haley + Dalton Wedding

“This downtown Pensacola wedding was also a New Year’s Eve wedding, and the bride and groom included so many festive details!  There was a “party room” at the reception, complete with hundreds of balloons. The reception showcased a display of unique clocks, all set to midnight.  The guests wore light up glasses and waved glow sticks as the party approached midnight. There were color-coordinated noisemakers and little silver bells to jingle at midnight, and of course, tons of confetti!”

Bette + Tripp Wedding

I was SUPER excited when Bette’s mom told me they had hired Myrtie Blue to do their florals and decor!!  I have long been a fan of their work and I knew that whatever they dreamed up was going to stunning, but I was blown away when I walked into the most elegant winter wonderland at the WaterColor Lakehouse.  The room glowed with the light of hundreds of candles, graceful birch trees stretched overhead, and (my personal favorite) the most sumptuous velvet linens adorned the tables.”

“I loved how excited Blake was to see Tiffany. We were standing on the side of Old Christ Church and I remember a couple passed Blake and he said, “I’m about to do my first look,” and you could see his face was just filled with anticipation. Then, once he saw her, anyone could see he thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world.”

“The couple’s portrait session was fantastic.  Hank is a PGA golfer, so he is used to being in front of the camera; and Mary is super-photogenic, so they made my job EASY!  Seriously, all I had to do was tell them to just “be together and be adorable!,” and they snuggled in ways that was adorable and somehow always showed their best angles to my camera.”

Jessica + Matthew Wedding

“When heading to Craft Farms Golf Club (which is an absolutely beautiful location) the weather tried to throw Jessica and Matthew’s wedding day for a ride with consistent rain showers all throughout the day. Did it bother Jessica or Matthew, or make them distraught? Not one bit. Jessica was just as calm and happy as if the sun were shining down with all its might.”
