June weddings… we love June weddings… we love them more when they are indoors though. lol It gets ridiculously hot here on the Florida and Alabama coastline during the summer! Ladonna commissioned us to photograph her June church wedding near Chipley, Florida. When she said she would also like an engagement session, I was thrilled! Engagement sessions are a perfect way for us to get to know each other before the wedding. For this engagement session, we traveled to downtown Chipley, Florida. It was  perfectly clouded day and we had the train depot and downtown all to ourselves. Hope you enjoy a peek at Tim & Ladonna’s engagement session. We look forward to their wedding this summer!

I watched the weather all day on the day of Josh & Lindsey’s session. Concerned it was going to rain or be so overcast that we couldn’t get the exact shot they had requested. It turned out to be a great day. The sun managed to burst through a little and *just* at the right times.

I had SOOOO much fun with Josh & Lindsey! We started at the beach…

Then we headed across to the Miracle Strip amusement area in Pier Park on Panama City Beach, FL. That’s when it got REAL fun!

We started on the carousel. Yes, all of us on the carousel. I will say it was interesting balancing, focusing and standing upright as you spin and everything around you moves! lol

I love that our clients love us so much they send their friends to us! <3  Brittaney is friends with one of our 2011 brides, Jennifer. We photographed her Cabana Blue wedding last October… and then their family Christmas portraits in the studio later last year.

Ryan & Brittaney were married on the Bay at Cabana Blue. Love this venue! The scenery is stunning and the in-house coordination is just wonderful! It’s always a joy working with the folks at Cabana Blue.It wasn’t until we arrived at the wedding that I discovered Brittaney & I went to school together! Small world! 🙂

The flowers looked like they could have come right off of a wedding gown. Just gorgeous!

Ryan & Brittaney had the best favors for their gifts. Adorable little Mason jars filled with chocolate…along with gender specific totes filled with great things!

At the end of the night, we were able to sneak back out to the boardwalk for a reflection shot.

Thank you to Ryan & Brittaney for letting me be a part of your day! Thanks to Jennifer for referring them! Thanks to Tiffany for second shooting with me! 🙂

Jason & Kasi came all the way from Mid- Alabama just for me to photograph them… well maybe they were here for the car show on Panama City Beach but they planned for a studio session with me as well. Take a peek at their session in the studio…

It’s always fun to run across someone with the same name as yours… makes it hard to forget their name 😉 When we met in Grayton Beach for Shane & Becca’s session, imagine my surprise when I met Becca’s parents only to find our Dad’s share the same name as well! Super cool!

Enjoy a few from Shane & Becca’s engagement session in Grayton Beach on 30a…

Kristin’s bridals

July 20, 2011

The anticipation from bridal sessions just kills me! I love sharing images with clients, potential clients and friends. So bridal sessions are always like a really good secret that you can’t wait to tell!

Since Chad & Kristin’s wedding was back in May (yes I am waaay behind in blogging lol). I can share!

Enjoy a peek at Kristin’s bridal in Carillon Beach, Florida…Carillon Beach wedding bridal portraits

We set out for Chad & Kristin’s engagement session one afternoon in March. It wasn’t raining but it sure wasn’t pretty. The sky was gray and cloudy, it was freezing cold & windy!  We attempted a few shots only to be blown away by the wind. So we called it a day and rescheduled for the next week. I think we all said our prayers that week and we were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day on the next go round.

I also had the pleasure of photographing Kristin’s bridal session in Carillon Beach. Be on the look out for a peek at those after their May wedding in Carillon Beach!

Back in 2009 I was contacted by a lovely lady in California who wanted to purchase a session gift certificate for her daughter and family. Fast forward a few years and here you have the DeBerry family!

After Dad being deployed to serve this wonderful country of ours and them having a brand new baby boy we finally managed to plan their beach session, just a few short months before they travel on to their next adventure in a much colder climate.

Thank you to the DeBerry family for the sacrifices you make to keep our country what it is and the price you pay to keep our freedom. I hope that the next adventure is as wonderful as your time here in Panama City, FL.

A few from their session…
