Megan + Justin Wedding | Santa Rosa Beach Wedding Photographers

Ok.  This wedding.  Those flowers.  The colors.  THAT DRESS.  A little rain didn’t stop Megan and Justin’s beautiful Bentley’s on the Bay wedding from being a complete success — and drop-dead, gorgeously amazing at that!  And, we were pretty stoked that Lauren, of Every Last Detail, thought so too, as it was recently featured on her popular wedding blog.  The coolest part of it all is that Ryan and Lindsey chose to shoot a combination of both digital and film, so it’s always fun to showcase a wedding from both perspectives.  Both equally as amazing and beautiful, but just a slightly different look and feel.

There were so many incredible details we loved about this wedding, but some of the most touching were the “love notes” given to Megan, an elementary school teacher whose students wrote them, on the day of their wedding.  We also absolutely adored the cute flower girl, who just couldn’t get enough of Megan’s dress and veil (can you blame her?!?).  🙂  To top all the gorgeousness off, the couple elected to do a sunrise next-day session since they were leaving early in the afternoon for their honeymoon.  Sunrise sessions don’t happen often, but the results are some of the most breathtaking images we’ve had the privilege of creating.

Chad & Danielle | Destin Maternity Photographer

Ryan recently had the amazing opportunity to photograph his niece, Danielle, and her husband (and one of Ryan’s best friends) Chad, for their oh-so-sweet maternity session.  This was an amazingly special session for us, as this will be the couples’ first child — and, well, you just can’t beat being a part of a family member’s incredible journey through pregnancy and bringing a new life into the world.

You may remember Chad and Danielle, as Ryan photographed their Sandestin wedding a few years back.  So many special milestones and blessings in this deserving couples’ life that that we’ve been blessed and honored to capture.  Memories captured in timeless photographs that they’ll cherish for a lifetime.

We’re so happy to report that baby Zeke was born just days before Christmas, and we absolutely CANNOT WAIT to share his gorgeous newborn photos!  In the meantime, enjoy this great session Ryan captured primarily on film, at their home in Destin.  And note the cute dog.  Bailey is quite awesome as well.

Brandy + Greg | Destin Wedding Videographer

Brandy and Greg were recently married at Celebration Hall, which is one of the area’s newest wedding venues.  The reception took place just down the road at the nearby Sandestin Beach Club, which was a total blast to be a part of.  There’s something a little extra special about this wedding . . . the bride is one of our very own Lindsey’s best friends!  We were even nice enough to give her the day off to take part in the festivities as a bridesmaid.

While Ryan was taking all the gorgeous images of this sweet couple, Alan was busy doing his usual awesome thing behind the video camera — and today you get a sneak peek into their ceremony and reception highlights!  Stay tuned for more where this came from; we still have a whole gallery of beautiful pictures and a full-length wedding film coming to a 2014 blog near you!

Jessica + James | Destin Wedding

We’ve been feeling exceptionally patriotic here lately, so couldn’t resist sharing another one of our favorite military couples from last fall.  Jessica and James are as adorable in person as they are in their wedding photos, and we had a blast hanging out on Destin’s awesome “wedding boat”, the Solaris.  The Solaris is a really cool concept, and sails off into the gorgeous sunsets for some amazing dinner cruises as well.

We loved working with Jessica and James, and couldn’t have asked for a prettier fall day for their nuptials!  We also loved working alongside some of our favorite Destin wedding professionals who helped the day go off without a hitch!. Hats off to the happy couple; we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Jennifer + Troy | Hurlburt Field Wedding Photographers

We recently did a Veteran’s Day feature, honoring so many of our clients who have served — or are currently serving — in the military.  Jennifer and Troy’s story is included, and is an impressive one at that!  At a grand total of 137 years of service among their extended family, Jennifer and Troy have contributed 38 of those.  Impressive!

Their Hurlburt Field wedding, which took place at the military base’s Sounside Club last year, was an intimate, sweet and gorgeous affair, and included Troy’s son as a groomsman.  We were so thrilled and beyond honored to photograph this amazing military wedding.  We salute you both and wish you many years of love and happiness!

Marcella + Peter | Pensacola Wedding Videographer

Alan packed up his gear and headed to the Pensacola Country Club to film the sweet wedding of Marcella and Peter earlier this year.  Working alongside the talented Sara Gillianne Weddings & Events was awesome, and it was great to be able to connect with so many other amazing Pensacola wedding professionals.

Marcella and Peter’s wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect: from the weather to the happy people to the love between this awesome couple.  They were really sweet and a joy to work with, even taking the time to personally greet all of their guests during their reception.

We’re excited to share Alan’s talents as a Pensacola wedding videographer, and the video highlight reel from Marcella and Peter’s wedding. We can’t wait to share the full feature soon!

Erin + Will | Panama City Beach Wedding Photographers

Erin and Will’s Panama City Beach wedding was a great example of how to do a beach wedding in style.  Nautical touches in the decor and navy on the girls were just what they envisioned for their beach wedding.  They exchanged vows in the sand underneath a gorgeous bamboo arbor, and followed with a rockin’ reception at the nearby Boatyard restaurant where guests (including one very sweet grandmother!) boogied down all night!

HUGE thanks to the very sweet and talented coordinator, Kimberly, of Elegant Beginnings for sending this sweet couple our way!  And to everyone else on their team who made this fun couple’s wedding a reality — you all rock!

Tara’s Maternity Portraits | Seaside Photographers

There’s nothing better than photographing a gorgeous, happy, smiling, radiant mommy-to-be!  We’re always thrilled when an expectant mom contacts us for maternity portraits, and we especially loved Tara’s Seaside session that she arranged as a surprise for her hubby during a girls’ trip to the area this past summer.  What a valuable gift to be able to give to your future child — a gift they’ll surely find as nothing short of miraculous!  And we’re happy to report that Tara’s sweet Analeigh Grace — her very own little miracle — was born just six weeks ago, happy, healthy and beautiful!  We loved getting Tara’s take on how important and special her maternity photos were:

“It was very important to me to capture the miracle of being pregnant.  I wanted to surprise my husband with some beautiful maternity photos so I decided to wait until I was visiting my favorite place, Seaside, FL.  I was so pleased with the photos and cannot wait until we are back this coming summer to have Analeigh’s photos taken on the beautiful white sandy beach!

Thank you Pure 7 Studios for capturing these magical moments.”

We can’t wait to meet that sweet baby next summer and be a part of capturing their family for years to come!

Erica & Miles Wedding + Next Day Session | Carillon Wedding Photographers

We met Erica and Miles a while back and immediately hit it off — they’re hip, laid back, fun and cool, so it was an obvious fit from the start.  😉  Having their canine kiddos as part of the celebration was a huge priority, so we were pretty excited to include them in both their wedding day and super-romantic, fun next day session.

Their beach wedding and reception was coordinated by the talented girls of Carillon Weddings®, and had a rockstar team of pros who helped make it all happen.  You can’t go wrong with Townsend Catering, Events by Nouveau, Gulf Talent Services, Confections on the Coast, and makeup artist Robin Klag!

Jenni + McClain Engagement & Wedding | Destin Wedding Photographers

This gorgeous couple was not only fun to work with, they were SUPER sweet, too!  We headed over to the Destin Harbor for Jenni & McClain’s engagement photos and knew right away our relationship was going to be a match made in wedding photography heaven.

Their wedding ceremony took place on the beach, with a reception following at the Bluewater Bay Sunset Club.  The girls, in their gorgeous terra cotta-colored dresses, were even prettier carrying their beautifully styled bouquets from Myrtie Blue (who also provided all the rest of the wedding gorgeousness, too!).  Paradise Cuisine and Sweet for Sirten made sure everyone’s bellies were happy, while DJ Vladi kept the dance floor alive and hoppin’.  Thanks to the always awesome coordination by Savoir Faire Weddings, the guests and new Mr. & Mrs. definitely had a blast!  In fact, we have the pictures to prove it.
