Sloan + David | Rosemary Beach Weddings

We couldn’t think of a better time to feature Sloan and David’s Rosemary Beach wedding.  With the promise of spring just around the corner, this full-of-life, colorful beach wedding gets us pretty darn excited for warmer temps and our upcoming spring wedding season.

Sloan and David were SUCH a fun, hip couple — totally our style!  😉  Not only was Sloan a super-cool and laid back bride, but their ridiculously adorable little girl, Georgie, completely stole our hearts the entire day.  She was full of energy and totally stole the show!  Pair all of that with gorgeous decor, amazing food, cakes that were completely fun and reflective of their personalities, and a night full of non-stop boogying on the dance floor — and you have yourself one heck of a party.

We loved being a part of Sloan and David’s day and are so blessed to photograph so many Rosemary Beach weddings- especially this one!  A huge thanks to our incredible team of wedding professionals who made it all happen!

Natalie | Rosemary Beach Bridal Portraits

Natalie is one of the most beautiful people we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know — both inside and out.  That beauty completely radiates from these gorgeous images Ryan captured in her Rosemary Beach bridal portraits, prior to their Seaside wedding this past September (which is being considered by a few popular wedding magazines as we speak!).  And have you ever seen anything quite like that dress?  Absolutely stunning, and we loved learning of the story of how this dress became THE dress.

Living in Birmingham at the time, Natalie was excited to visit with some of the local dress shops.  Being the self-proclaimed “fashion-obsessed” girl that she is, dress shopping ranked pretty high on her list of priorities.  But after nearly drowning in tulle and lace and satin and silk, Natalie left those shops not quite feeling like any of them fit the bill.  So, along with her mom, sister and two nephews, Natalie made the trek to Atlanta’s Bridals by Lori (yep, the shop on TLC’s ‘Say Yes to the Dress‘!) determined to fall in love —  and walk away with — her perfect dress.  And that she did!  This stunner, designed by Lazaro, not only took her breath away, but it immediately evoked some happy mama-of-the-bride tears . . . this was the one!  This dress was also the very first dress Natalie saved in her Pinterest-perusing-wedding-dress-quest!   And we couldn’t agree more that it is absolutely perfect.

Curious to see the other half of this gorgeous girl’s heart?  Head on over to check out their recent engagement session feature where you can get a peek of Natalie and her (now) husband, Parker being all beautiful together (and they totally are).

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.



dave, denae, chase & carter – the holifields

last week i was lucky enough to photograph a family that is close to me. dave & denae have the coolest twins! if you can believe it, denae’s tiny frame had two babies in it! i photographed her maternity session 5 years ago; it seems like it was just yesterday. i was also fortunate enough to be a part of their wedding at monet gardens in grayton beach. it was an honor to capture the sweet moments of them together. i can honestly say i was anticipating this session with them. . .it’s not everyday that you get to shoot with good friends. thanks to dave & denae for letting me photograph your family!
