Bohemian WaterColor Wedding | Shannon & Ryan

The saying, “April showers bring May flowers” certainly was true at Shannon’s and Ryan’s tropical bohemian WaterColor wedding last month. A wonderfully warm spring day along the Emerald Coast was the perfect backdrop for this lush, colorful wedding at one of 30A‘s choice wedding venues.

Pure 7 Studios Bohemian Watercolor Wedding Beach Glam

With the bride wearing an absolutely fabulous flower crown and her dream gown by Israeli designer Berta, how could this gorgeous day be anything less than perfect? As you scroll through these photos, which are a mix of digital and film images, you’ll see how every detail, from the mini-crown for the flower girl to the bride’s crystal headpiece worn for post-ceremony photos, came together to make it exactly that: perfect.


A Spring WaterColor Wedding | Stefanie & Rémi

When the bride is from New York, the groom is from France, and the festivities are hosted at one of 30A‘s top resorts, macarons from Sucré are an obvious choice to have at this destination WaterColor wedding.


And those delicious treats were just the start of an absolutely gorgeous day with a tasteful, international flair.


WaterColor Weddings | Elaine & Turner

What do you do when you’re on a first date with a beautiful girl who orders fish for the shared main course at a fondue restaurant, and you don’t like seafood?
You eat it anyway.
Nearly four years and a few fights over OU football later, that dinner paid off for Turner as he and Elaine said “I do” on an absolutely picture-perfect day in WaterColor.
We’re pretty sure Turner had a voice in the final dinner selections, because we noticed there was no seafood dish on their mouthwateringly Southern menu.


Sanders Beach Rentals Commercial Video | Watercolor

We’ve been sitting on this for a little while and are so happy to finally be able to share this fantastic commercial video project! It’s a wonderful teaser for the gorgeous weather that’s just around the corner here on the Emerald Coast.

If you’ve ever had to plan a family or group vacation then you know it takes time, energy and patience to find the perfect place. You may have even gone somewhere that ended up not being worth the work when all was said and done. We have a solution for you.READ MORE

Fresh Vintage Watersound Wedding | Carley & Justin

As wedding photographers located at in beautiful beach destination community, the weddings we shoot are almost always on the beach. While we always love a jaw-dropping Alys Beach or Seaside beach wedding, it is a breath of fresh air when we get to cover a wedding on land instead of in the sand.


Carley and Justin’s Fresh Vintage Watersound Wedding was just that. For starters, we all know what vintage usually looks and feels like.  As you oo and ahh through the photos, you’ll notice they didn’t overdo it or try to theme their wedding at all. The Vintage feel is very subtle and fresh.


One Of A Kind |Klibanoff Family’s Coalesce Session

The Klibanoff family is just as unique as their name.  Individually they are all one of a kind yet as a family they are one. We had the pleasure of taking their family beach photos during their Fourth of July trip and just like them, their family beach photos are one of a kind.

The best part about their photo session with us? They chose to do a Coalesce Session so we got to bring Alan along to shoot a family highlight video. These videos are a fast favorite around the studio – and with the clients who want them –  because every family member is interviewed and leaves a little piece of their heart in the project.

Alan films everyone describing their family members and memories they have together giving viewers like us a deeper look into their life. Photos can speak a thousand words but there are times when actual words mean the most. We strive to let our coalesce sessions be one of those special places so those meaningful words live forever in film.

Once you’ve watched the Klibanoff family highlight video you can draw so much more from their family photos. The fun facts and personality that shines through in the interviews begins to show up in the photos. You don’t just see love, you see their love.

Knowing how they came to be a family can also allow others to relate to our clients. That’s part of why we love doing what we do. It’s a dream when we get a new client because they saw a family photo or a wedding video that just speaks to them.

Watercolor Wedding Photos | Jordan and Ryan

Not long ago we shared THIS WEDDING VIDEO, raving about the bride and her bold style (and the groom with his groom’s cake).  Today we want to share their wedding photos with you, taken at the always amazing WaterColor Resort (coordinated by the equally fabulous Cheryl Walton of St. Joe Club & Resorts). Most of the time we share the photos & video together, but this time we did it separately. As you can see, a wedding video tells the story one way with the wedding photos sharing that same story – but from a different angle.

In our case, there really are two sides to every story… the one told through still photographs and the one in motion. Take a few minutes and look through Jordan and Ryan’s wedding photos and then go back and watch their wedding video. Of course they cover a lot of the same ground, but there is an element of life that videography brings because it entices even more of the senses. On the other side, still photos allow you to focus and really observe and appreciate small details.

If you can’t tell by now, we’re just really in love with wedding photography and wedding videography. We swoon over the couples that allow us the privilege of capturing both, allowing us to tell the story from multiple perspectives.

30a bridal party

Watercolor Wonderland | Laura + Bobby

Sometimes you look at wedding photos and you feel like you really get a sense of how everything looked and felt. Other times you see the wedding photos and you just wish you were there. Laura and Bobby’s Watercolor Wonderland of a wedding was the latter. If someone looks through all of the wedding photos below and then tries to tell us they don’t feel like they missed out… we’ll call them a liar.

From getting ready in the rooms to getting down on the dance floor this wedding really seems to have it all. For starters, Laura had ten beautiful bridesmaids! This means ten dresses, hairstyles, make up sessions, and lots and lots of pictures. We don’t often shoot weddings with such a big wedding party so we took some creative liberties with this group. They had such an energy about them. So much personality and of course, more love for the bride and groom than any two people could possible comprehend.

The entire wedding and celebration is no doubt one for the books. Or in today’s modern world, one for the boards. (We’re talking about Pinterest.)  The flowers hanging in the trees created the perfect backdrop for the ceremony which took place in front of friends and family. Every detail was well thought out and perfectly executed. It’s hard to believe it’s over.

Like Laura and Bobby, we’re so grateful for these wedding photos so we can remember their big day and just how big of a wedding whirlwind it was.

Wonderful Watersound Beach Wedding | Caroline & Nick

If you remember back a few weeks, we shared their wedding video and told you once you watched it, you’d wish Caroline was your new best friend.  Well,  today we bring you the beautiful wedding photos from their wonderful Watersound Beach wedding and they will only make you fall in love with Caroline and Nick even more.

These two ooze confidence and class with the perfect twist of play. Always able to joke and be free in the moment without the tone of the day falling anything short of wedding worthy. When you’re around them, you feel as if you’ve entered Caroline and Nick’s world. The truth of the matter is… you probably have. We’re just so happy they made room in their world for us so we could take it all in and then capture it on camera for them to keep forever.

As you pour over their wedding photos, pay attention to their facial expressions. Both Caroline and Nick are involved in acting and performing and their comfort in front of the camera really shines through. They are both so effortlessly candid, really living in the moment. These are crucial skills to have when creating a character but even more important when you get to just be yourself. Caroline and Nick were completely themselves and we couldn’t have created the perfect wedding photo collection without them.

Enjoy the different combinations of old and new, black and white, funny and serious, and most of all Caroline and Nick. We love them both and look forward to any chance we’d get to work with them again.
