5 Eleven Wedding in Downtown Pensacola | Bethany + Cody

5 Eleven Wedding in Downtown Pensacola | Bethany + Cody

Here was a truly fun wedding. From the confetti canons (EVERYONE BUY THESE! Though they are kinda scary 😂 ) to the gorgeous bride who was down for ALL the fun! Even when I wanted her bridesmaids to throw handfuls of confetti over her face and hair for photos 😝❤️.

We shed confetti for weeks and I still find it in my shoes. Totally worth it. We also did a first look which means toooons of time for portraits!

The day before, I photographed their rehearsal dinner where I learned of the groom’s dearrrr love of the Brittney Spears song “Hit Me Baby One More Time.”

Unbeknownst to the groom, his fiancé and family had prepared a collection of clips of him singing and dancing to this very song over the years… many, many clips that were expertly edited and set to that song. In between fits of laughter, I managed to capture this surprise moment in the groom’s honor.

The song was played again during the reception, and you guessed it - He whipped off his suit jacket and proceeded to sing along to every word and dance along.

This day was definitely one of the highlights of my wedding career and I was glad to be there for it!

When it rains and it's still gorgeous | Live Oak Plantation Wedding in Pensacola

Finally getting around to blogging this beautiful December wedding at Live Oak! I’m about three weddings behind soooo yea.

We all collectively freaked a bit when 100% chance of rain was forecasted on this day. Good luck my butt - am I right?! I mean it NEVER let up, so I literally had to flash everything, which is no prob ;)

No grain in your picture game! Because grain is what happens when you’re not flash experienced… get it? Nevermind. Just know that if FL weather is dark AF - I got you.

But this was still one of the more gorgeous weddings I’ve seen! Everything from the carefully selected details (I mean THOSE EARRINGS!), to the most intricately beaded dress, and that stunning pop of color in all the red. I loved it!

SIDE NOTE: The sunshine portraits were not from this day. If you’ve been personally victimized by FL weather on your wedding day, get with me to rebook your portraits!

Bright and Airy Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach Wedding | Ambia + Carlos

One of the most unique venues I’ve had the pleasure of shooting at here in the Panhandle! Ambia managed to pull together a spectacular wedding with stunning details that pulled from all of her and Carlos’ favorite things in just three short months.

From the bride:

“The mood I am trying to capture is the waning days of summer, which I think of as warmth and nostalgia.

In terms of vibe, I was trying to find a balance between the sophistication and energy of New York where we met and lived for many years and the quiet elegance of DC where we now live and the southern charm of Birmingham where Carlos grew up and put that all into the context of the coastal cities that we gravitate to (and that were the destinations of our first vacations together (San Diego, Destin, Los Angeles, Orange Beach).”

I think she succeeded! Here is her album design sans family formal spreads!

Vendors:

Nicole Miller with Southern Salt Weddings

Venue: Coastal Arts Center

Catering: Alabama Coastal Catering (SO GOOD)

Florist: Fiore

Cakes: Blue Jay's Bakery

Guys, I’m so behind, BUT I have to post these album designs! They also make good blog posts soooo…

With my second double wedding weekend coming up tomorrow, I'm about 4 weddings and 3 sessions behind on editing, but feeling so incredibly lucky to be here!!

(Missing a few family formal spreads for privacy reasons ;))

This album will likely be 10x10 with either a velvet (I think she’s leaning towards velvet!) or leather album cover. Albums are guaranteed for life with proper care and everyone should definitely invest in one!

I HAD to share this one. I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of designing this wedding album with and for Sarah.

YES! You should definitely get one (with alllll the upgrades!)!!

Her wedding happened 9/2/18 near Sacramento, CA. (If you know anything about me, it’s that I am forever in love with the west coast and that’s where my heart is) at The Maples Woodland Ranch. A beautiful venue in a small town.

I was SO incredibly happy to have to opportunity to capture this wedding and work with Sarah and Max who have been a dream from beginning to end.
