Emily & Jim were married recently at the Sandestin Resort in beautiful South Walton county.  This was a destination wedding with many friends and family arriving from Chicago.  Emily’s dress was just stunning and was a perfect style for the day.   It was a beautiful Spring afternoon and the azaleas at Sandestin were in full bloom providing us amazing color.  Enjoy!

We strolled around Baytown Wharf for some fun between the ceremony & reception…undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedThis crowd definitely knew how to party….undefinedundefined

Chamaine and Carlos drove all the way from New Orleans to have a beautiful wedding on the beaches of the Emerald Coast. They chose Sandestin Hilton as their venue and it was perfect for them. The ballroom was beautiful and all the vendors did a really great job! Their wedding really focused on family. Chamaine and Carlos have 3 children together, but there were many more children there. I don’t think I have seen so many kids at a wedding before and they all partied like the adults! And, you know how those Louisiana people like to party! They even extended the reception because they weren’t done partying.

We got a phone call a few months back from our friend Melissa at Masterpiece Weddings in Gainesville. Her best friend from Houston was coming to our beautiful beaches for her wedding, and Melissa knew we would all have a great time working together. The weather that week was horrible, but we had a some divine intervention and got an hour of dryness right around the ceremony. We had a really great time, and really enjoyed our afternoon with everyone!

061209_01Gotta love some Jimmy Choo…

061209_02I love this shot… Lauri can do serious well.


This is their son Jaxson who loved mom’s bouquet…..


He also loved all of the water puddles!




Now that is Melissa on the right.  She played Maid of Honor and officiant that day.  They are hilarious!


We crossed the very busy road from their rental house to the beach… the look says it all 🙂


Melissa did a beautiful job with these…..


Love those clouds…. I can stare at this and almost feel the stormy breeze blowing through my hair again.



Now beach weddings can be a lot of fun with your friends…..


Until somebody gets hurt!




They finished with a nice dinner at the beautiful Bistro Bijoux in Baytown Wharf…..

Ashleigh and Galen booked us on what had to be the most popular Saturday of the year. We had three brides wanting to book us for this date within two hours of each other, and Ashleigh managed to seal the deal first! We first met them at their engagement session in Atlanta last Fall, and we knew then that Ashleigh had great taste for their wedding. This was a beautiful intimate event at a private beach house (Palazzo Del Sol) in Destin, with food and florals from the always fantastic Celestine’s. The weather was a little tricky with spotty rain showers off and on, but the back yard tent overlooking the Gulf was a lifesaver for everyone. The large, puffy, purple clouds are always great for photos, especially when blue skies are peaking through.

052609-01Ashleigh’s niece and nephew were in the wedding and quite helpful while getting dressed…

052609-02Just lovely…

052609-02aAdd a beautiful bride to the mix…





052609-08Love those clouds…. That little spec under the cloud on the right is actually a parasail…..






052609-14Great weather…

Oh where do I begin? Hannalore and I hit it off from the 1st conversation. She grew up in Mobile (like Wes and I did) and she graduated from a rival high school the same year as Wes. We were all in the marching band too (yes, we were cool)! We also discovered that one of Hannalore’s good friends was Wes’ good friend in elementary school. It really is a small world. Anyway, we were excited to shoot at two new locations. The ceremony was at Dune Allen Beach off Highway 30A. It is a small strip of beach nestled in between very large beach houses and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. The reception was at the exclusive Cypress Dunes Clubhouse. I say exclusive because it’s a little tricky to have a wedding there. It was truly amazing. But, wow! Wait until you see Hannalore! Stunning. We were also excited to have the pleasure of working with Celestine’s again. Oh, the band! They were from Mobile and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

There’s our sexy little bride…..

This jewelry was classic and flawless….and yes ladies “they are” to answer your question.

Richard found her as stunning as we did….

Full sun without a cloud in the sky!

One of my favorites…. it was a beautiful sunset

The infinity pool was perfect for this setting…

Perfect location for the cake!


Kimberly and Scot were married recently at Henderson State Park in Destin, with their reception following at Rutherfords 465 at Regatta Bay. They came all the way from Atlanta for our beautiful beaches which did not disappoint!

We started with some getting ready photos at The Palms resort….

Then we headed down to the beach for the wedding……

It really was a beautiful day…even though the forecast was for rain all day!

How about a group shot?

The golf course at Rutherfords is beautiful as well. They are both golfers which made it even more fitting….

We had some toasts, and then everyone was treated to Rutherfords awesome desserts including this mouth watering cheesecake!

And then danced into the night……….
