To everyone who visited me at Bride’s Night at the Hilton last June – remember filling out those little cards and dropping them into the crystal vase, in the hopes of winning an engagement session? Well, Sam and Michael won it! It was my pleasure to shoot these two high school sweethearts in downtown Pensacola. We started in Plaza Ferdinand, and explored both Seville Quarter and Palafox Pier – here’s a sampling! I know their June wedding at the Lee House will be beautiful 🙂
You know how people say that pregnancy is a beautiful thing? Well, let’s be honest – sometimes it’s swollen ankles and nausea and other not-so-pretty things. NOT FOR ANDREA. This hot mama-to-be could model pregnancy…she really truly glowed during our shoot at her home, and I am pleased as punch at the results.
Congratulations to Andrea and Brett! I can’t wait to meet the little guy when he makes his appearance on (boo!) Halloween.
A million years ago (last January), I relaxed in my booth at the Pensacola Bridal Expo while I watched the amazing fashion show that closed the show. The brides and grooms were all seated around the stage, clutching their bags full o’ goodies, devouring the bridal confections as they sashayed down the runway. Suddenly, I heard a soft voice whisper, “Would you mind if we stood in your booth to watch the show? All the chairs are full.” And so, I met Amanda and Stephen. We ended up spending the rest of the show chatting, and I nearly died when I learned that they had been engaged for all of 16 hours!
We shared an enormous plate of nachos and several beers a few weeks later at Sailor’s Grill on Navarre Beach, and a friendship was made (and photographer booked!). Their engagement photos were a ton of fun, and I enjoyed their wedding every bit as much.
It rained all day, but stopped just in time…and left us this gorgeous reflecting pond!
I think Amanda, with her dark hair and gorgeous skin, looks smokin’ hot in black and white!
Before I lived in Pensacola, and before Savannah (but after North Carolina, Texas, Connecticut and New York), I lived in ATLANTA! It’s been five years since I moved away, and I loved the chance to return for the day for a truly special event. Tamiko and Ponchellis’s wedding was one of the most unique I have photographed, and it was full of special (and unexpected!) touches. I can’t wait to share. Here’s a sneak peek!
