Seaside Wedding Highlights Video | Jennifer & Steven

The weather on March 19th was absolutely perfect. As we packed up our gear that morning and headed out to shoot their wedding video, we were convinced that Jennifer & Steven had ordered it specifically for their special day.

Seaside weddings are just beautiful, so a wedding at the Seaside Chapel followed by a reception on Kelly Green in neighboring Alys Beach is a fantastic combination. Every intricate detail was attended to by the talented planners at It’s A Shore Thing, so we knew this would be a stunning wedding. We were not disappointed and, as captured in the highlights footage below, neither were the guests.

Our fly-on-the-wall and eye-in-the-sky coverage will make you feel like you were there. You’ll see that everyone had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the entire day, start to finish. The real question, though, was what would Jennifer & Steven think. We didn’t have to wait long to find out, and were thrilled with their response.

“We just watched the wedding highlights film and we are so in love with it!” Jennifer wrote. “Alan did such an amazing job!!”

Stay tuned for the full-length video coming soon (yay!), and feel free to forward this to any friends who are planning their wedding. We’d love to chat with them about creating their custom wedding video.

Oh, and if you want to catch the look on Steven’s face when he turns to see Jennifer for the First Look, skip ahead to the 01:10 mark. It will just…well, see for yourself. Then go ahead – watch it a few more times. We did (true story).

Joyous Alys Beach Wedding Highlights Film | Katherine & Hunter

If we had to choose one word to describe this day, it would be, without question, “joy.” As we scrolled through the footage while creating this wedding highlights film, we didn’t spot one insincere smile from anybody and – trust us – that isn’t always the case. Everyone was truly happy to be celebrating this milestone occasion and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the day!

Katherine & Hunter’s beautiful wedding ceremony took place at the Seaside chapel, and the absolutely gorgeous reception was held in Alys Beach. Take a look at the aerial shots that our award-winning filmmaker Alan LeBlanc captured in the opening scenes of this film. We could not have asked for a more fabulous day for a wedding!

The big game of the day made several cameos by way of iPhone and the groom’s cake, so all was right with the world.

We hope you love this as much as we do. Alan’s schedule is filling up quickly, so if you’re interested in booking him for your upcoming event, let’s talk soon!

Alys Beach Wedding | Heather & Jason

A few weeks ago we shared Heather and Jason’s Alys Beach Wedding Video and today we’ve decided to reveal their wedding photos.  Normally we would show you everything all at once but decided this time we would let their wedding video and wedding photos stand alone. This way you’ll see our two different creative perspectives separately. One from our videographer, Alan, and the other from our photographers Ryan and Lindsey. They each have their own way of working through a wedding to capture the love and celebration of the day.

In their collection of wedding photos we love the subtle emphasis on Heather in her wedding dress. She is truly stunning both inside and out and every shot we took of her just showcases her effortless beauty. With photos in both color and black and white throughout there’s a perfect mix of timeless and trending.

While we could go on and on about Heather, it’s only fair to Jason and their beautiful ceremony and reception that we include them in all this. We still can’t get over how they had their very own white wall to get married! In our opinion it really made the ceremony pop and just suited them and Alys Beach perfectly. The photos of the happy couple on the beach speak for themselves. No matter how many weddings or family beach photos we shoot we never tire of seeing how striking and unique our beaches really are.

If you’ve never been to Alys Beach on 30A then you’re seriously missing out. There’s a reason so many brides pick here to be the place to say their I Dos and we’d like to think wedding photos like these are one of them.

Contrast and Color in Alys Beach Wedding Photos | Caroline & Matt

Sometimes you see things and they just speak to you. For some unexplainable reason this experience is a game changer. Well, Caroline and Matt’s wedding – and now wedding photos –  were a game changer for us.  Alys Beach is known for its impeccably white walls and Caroline’s vision incorporated contrast and color everywhere, which was probably a first for the beach town.

These two aren’t like other couples so it only makes sense their photos didn’t turn out like other wedding photos. Ryan and Lindsey were able to frame photos so the colors convey a sense of movement and playfulness matching the newlyweds personalities spot on. Truth be told, Caroline and Matt just being “Caroline and Matt” really make the wedding photos.  Their ability to be playful and loud in some moments while others are timeless black and whites also contributed to Ryan and Lindsey delivering a stunning photo collection.

Seeing the contrasting mixture inspires and reminds us there is always room to play and push the edge of what seems right or comfortable. It’s truly magical how well it all came together. Look at the ceremony with the guests. Could they have “dressed the part” any better? And the blue of the sea and sky. Even as locals it’s hard to believe its real. The day couldn’t have been any better and Caroline and Matt cherished every moment with their family and friends.

We are so thankful for them and all little wedding “wins” that aligned so we could create this special collection of wedding photos so Caroline and Matt can look back on their big day.

Alys Beach Wedding Video |Heather & Jason

It’s not everyday we get to photograph a wedding in Alys Beach. If you’re not familiar with this beach town – famous for its all white walls – then the opening shot in Heather and Jason’s wedding video will give you a pretty good look at this stunning beach town on 30A.

You’ll also get to see how they celebrated with style. They did things a little differently and got married in a beach town but without a beach wedding. Heather and Jason creatively chose to get married in a lush natural setting with a big white backdrop. (It couldn’t get more Alys Beach than that!) It’s wedding videos like theirs that make us forever inspired with the wedding industry.

Every bride wants perfection and has her own picture perfect image of what this day looks like. Wedding planners, florists, bakers, DJs, and the bride and groom (with their friends and family) all come together to execute and create the perfect day. At the end of the wedding celebration, the newlyweds and their loved ones go home with all the memories.

We love attending weddings like Heather and Jason’s, because we are inspired to create new and original memories. We hope you love Heather and Jason’s wedding video as much as we do. They are an insanely special couple who were kind enough to trust us to preserve the memories of their big day.

If you’re looking for a wedding photographer or wedding videographer then please say hello and we’ll get in touch to talk about making your dream day a reality.

Pure7 Photos Featured in EC Magazine

Truth be told we are loving all the buzz from this year’s Digital Graffiti. It’s been around for almost a decade and is starting to catch on for both locals and visitors lucky enough to be in Alys Beach when it takes place. Per usual Ryan shot a bunch of the event photos and just last week we blogged the commercial videos Alan shot at DG for Facetime Photobooth. Today we’re sharing the pages of Pure7 photos featured in EC Magazine where Digital Graffiti lives on for just a little longer in the latest issue.

If you’re not familiar with the event or EC Magazine, check them out! Both are worth your time (and money). Especially since the latest issue includes our latest feature! While you’re at it, Alys Beach is also a great place to visit even if you can’t make it when DG is happening. Its beautiful beaches are often the backdrop for our wedding photography and family beach photos.

All You Need is Love | Lindsie + Shane on Alys Beach

Exactly one week ago we were in the thick of fulfilling our sponsorship duties at Digital Graffiti. Alan and Ryan kicked butt shooting the event non-stop for three days. If you missed it, there are a few sneak peaks of this year’s event on our Instagram. Despite all the long hours and hard work, we love Digital Graffiti and all you need is love… right?

Today, in honor of Alys Beach and love, we’re sharing Lindsie and Shane’s one of a kind Alys Beach wedding. You won’t have to scroll through too many photos to figure out  how different their pictures are from other wedding pictures. Lindsie has a spark unlike any other, and the camera couldn’t help but capture it shot after shot. She looks as grounded and easygoing as she is, making both the wedding day shooting and post wedding work that much better.

Another thing making their collection unique is the lack of stiff posed photos. Lindsie and Shane were so free and really allowed us to be creative and try new things. We love building that relationship and trust with our clients. It helps everybody win!

Cheers to Lindsie and Shane. May their life be as one of a kind as they are.

Digital Graffiti 2014 | Pure7 Studios Proud Sponsor

There is an entire culture of people who consider graffiti an art. After seeing some of the pieces by Banksy or Shepard Fairey and the messages they spread, we can’t disagree. Their pieces require artistic talent and much like musicians, painters, photographers and all artists; graffiti artists are inspired by the world around them.

We only bring this up because in just three weeks, the white walls of Alys Beach will become a gallery of graffiti art. The only catch? It’s all digital graffiti.  The city hosts a digital graffiti festival in conjunction with Visit South Walton, celebrating the talents of digital artists everywhere. Around this time each year artists come from all over the world to showcase their ability to design using the newest technology. Of course like all great festivals, Digital Graffiti attracts musicians, filmmakers, photographers, digital artists, and even celebrities.

If you’re not familiar with digital graffiti as an art form or event, you soon will be. Scroll through our photos and watch the Pure7  highlight video of Digital Graffiti 2014. Our work will show you everything you need to know. Plus, as digital artists in our own right, Pure7 Studios remains a proud sponsor of Digital Graffiti for the third year in a row.

Consider this your personal invitation to come join us at the festivities and see the latest digital graffiti up close and personal. The entire #Pure7Fam will be there doing what we do best – documenting all the happenings of the festival and celebrate the talented artists working outside our medium.

Buy your tickets for the Digital Graffiti festival (June 4-6th) on

Keep up with Digital Graffiti 2015 on Facebook, Twitter (@DGAlysBeach), and Instagram (@DJAlysBeach).

Can’t wait to see you there!

Coalesce Session on Alys Beach |The Lam Family

Last summer Ryan and Alan went out to shoot a Coalesce Session with the Lam family during their vacation in Alys Beach.  This lively family of four was the sweetest treat to work with while our boys shot photos and video footage to create treasured heirlooms the Lam’s could cherish. If you’re not familiar with our Coalesce Session, that’s okay. It’s one of our favorite sessions, so we’re happy to talk about it pretty much anytime.

The biggest difference between our Coalesce Session and Portrait Session is the addition of our videographer.  With the Coalesce Session, the Lam’s received their pure7 family photos to “ooo and ahh” over for years to come. But they also received personal video footage edited into a 5-7 minute Cinematic Family Film.

Let us explain just how that works. In the Lam’s case, Ryan worked with them to get a family photo collection with both posed and candid shots. Throughout the session the family’s personalities came out which helps guide and inspire the photography session. Alongside Ryan,  Alan shot video getting all of the motion and sound of the day, which compliments the still photographs. He even interviewed the family members. Through those interviews you get an idea of everyone’s individuality and why they make such a great family. Since no two families are alike, no two family videos are alike either.

Please click play on the below video to enjoy their Family Film. When you’re finished, scroll down to view their Alys Beach family portraits.

Hopefully, you’ll see how well our family portrait photography and video compliment one another (and understand why we love shooting Coalesce Sessions so much).

Thanks again to the Lam family for a great time. Please don’t forget to pack us when you go to Paris!
