a family reunion…..

for the first time, we had the opportunity to photograph a family reunion get together in Seagrove Beach Florida.  luckily the rain had left us with a beautiful winter day for some frolicking on the beach before they gathered for dinner.  this was a beautiful family full of adorable, lively children (and adults, too).  they were such a joy!  hopefully we can be a part of their annual get together!

ryan’s wedding faves from 2011……

so this post is about three weeks too late, but hey we don’t like to be like everyone else. here is a collection of photos we shot in 2011 that i think shows what we are all about. we had such a blast this past year and are looking for an even greater one this year. thank you to all our brides for choosing pure7. we truly love each and everyone of you.



a disney wedding fit for a princess….

This wedding was SO fun to photograph, for many reasons!  It was held at the beautiful Disney Yacht Club in Disney World, and it is always a treat to travel and photograph in a new location.  The enchantingly beautiful bride (Lindsay), is a former Disney “princess”, and a good friend of our bride (Katie; also a former Disney “princess”) whose Santa Rosa Beach wedding we photographed in March (click here to view).  We are so glad to now have had the wonderful experience of photographing two “princess weddings”!  Disney has some pretty strict restrictions on what you can and cannot say about such things, so lets just leave it at.  Needless to  say, Joslyn thinks her dad is a rock-star for photographing the weddings of two Disney VIP’s in the last year!  She always thinks when we go to Disney that the ‘princesses’ will recognize him.  Too cute!  After the wedding, we were able to stay a couple days and take our 3 kiddos to Magic Kingdom and Sea World, which of course was huge fun!

Without further adieu, we’d love to share with you some of these magical images. Lindsay was stunning in her Martina Liana gown, that had just a hint of peach that tied in the delicate color palette from her beautiful bouquet.  All of the beautiful little details from her Twigs & Honey & Emilliner hair adornments, to her fabulous navy glitter-adorned Kate Spade ‘charm’ bridal shoes, to the mink stole she wore post-ceremony (which was her grandmothers and served as her ‘something old’), and even the bag-pipe player, made this wedding such a treat to photograph. Lindsay & Robert have a love between them that shines through to anyone fortunate enough to meet them.  We are so blessed to have met them and had the opportunity to share in their beautiful wedding.  Thank you, Lindsay & Robert, for choosing us to be a part of such a grande event.  We are positive that a couple such as the two of you, will definitely be blessed with nothing but happiness everlasting!
