By now it’s probably pretty obvious we spend most of our time shooting wedding photos and videos along 30A. Recently it seems like we’ve spent a fair share of our time shooting and filming in Rosemary Beach or Seaside. That’s why these Fort Pickens engagement photos were so much fun with Shirley and Chad.

If you’re not familiar with Fort Pickens, it’s in Pensacola, Florida which is a little more than an hour drive from our studio in Destin. When you look at these engagement photos you’ll see a completely different look and feel from our previous collections and that’s because of where we are and who we’re with. They say “location location location” and this was just another example of how true that simple and cliche phrase really is.

The tone of the engagement photos is different. The textured brick and wide open space with no big blue gulf in sight brings about different feelings than beach photos. It’s really one of the reasons living along the Emerald Coast is so great. We have lush green venues with towering trees, beautiful beaches that rank higher than many in the world, and cool places full of character and history like Fort Pickens.

We also get the opportunity to work with the best couples in the world like Shirley and Chad. We get locals, military men and women and of course all of our destination bride and groom duos. There isn’t a place we’d rather be taking engagement photos and wedding photos along with everything else we shoot. We are so excited for Shirley and Chad to get married and continue their love story as husband and wife.
