Jackie + Matt (Wedding Photography at Pensacola Country Club)

Jackie and Matt’s Pensacola Country Club wedding was FUN.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for an outside ceremony overlooking the bay, and everyone there (and there were a lot of people there, folks!) clearly adored the couple and were ready to party!  I love that Jackie was adventurous, even in her wedding gown (me: “Would you think it’s crazy if I asked you to take of your shoes, hike up your dress, and walk out onto the end of the jetty in the bay?”  Jackie: “Let’s do it!  I only get to wear this dress once so let’s make it count!”).

Venue |  Pensacola Country Club

Florals |  The Open Rose

Fashion (Bridal and Maids) |  David’s

Cakes |  Miss Mix-a-Lot by Cyndi Pablo (this is Jackie’s sister-in-law who just started her own business, and I can vouch that her cakes were INCREDIBLE, both visually and in my mouth)

Officiant |  Darrin Land at Legacy Event Design


So, Matt bravely wanted to try for this shot, and . . .

…this was the painful result.

Groom’s cake?  There’s an app for that!

Kristen + Joel: Engagement Portrait! (Pensacola Wedding Photography at Pensacola Beach and Palafox Pier)

So, Kristen and Joel from DeFYOOOniak Springs are tons of fun.  I think we were laughing by the second frame, and I don’t think we stopped until the sun went down (literally).  They were game for anything and handled obstacles – such as jellyfish and rogue waves – with aplomb.  I cannot wait for their backyard spring wedding…

Also, I didn’t enhance up the colors in the beach shots.  This might have been the most amazing sunset of the year.  I LOVE where I live!

Tracy + Joey (Pensacola Wedding Photographer shoots at Big Lagoon State Park)

Tracy and Joey are two of the warmest people I have ever had the pleasure of shooting.  We met over breakfast at the Coffee Cup last year (business over grits?  love it!), and you may remember their engagement portrait in the most awesome backyard ever.  Well, their wedding was filled with warmth and kindness and joy from all directions.  Big Lagoon is a gorgeous venue right here in Pensacola, and it was buzzing with laughter and happiness last month for their wedding.

Alicia & Kyle’s Maternity Shoot (Maternity Photographer on Pensacola Beach)

I’m a sucker for laughter, so this shoot was bound to be great.  Alicia and Kyle (and their pups, Jolly and Honey Bunny), drove all the way from Dothan for this waterside maternity shoot, and they were up for any and everything.  Alicia came prepared with props (I LOVE props!) and they both brought happiness and laughter – even when I suggested that they frolic through the water at eight months pregnant…
