Kara & Rich chose us based on our website, but as soon as I met them, I KNEW we were a match. I could not have been more right. We had an absolute blast all day long. We walked in the room where the ladies were getting ready and it was immediate energy! The iPod was blaring, the bridesmaids were gorgeous in their jewel-toned dresses, Renee (from Two Fishes) was beautifying Rich’s mom, and Kara’s reality-show-star-friend, Jon (from Shear Genius), was busy fussing over Kara’s perfect hair!
Kara & Rich wanted to party immediately after the ceremony, so we had a first look session and it was perfect. I am pretty sure Rich was blown away by the sight of his bride. She was stunning. After wrangling the wedding party for some pre-ceremony photos, we headed to the beautiful ceremony site at the Western Lake Park. After a tear-filled ceremony and some quick family photos, we stole the crazy couple for some pretty golden light photos.
Not long after the reception began at the Bait House Pool Deck, Jon whisked Kara to the locker room for a wardrobe change and a completely fresh hair style. Jon really is a great friend to Kara and he wanted to make sure she was perfect for her day. At the end of the night, Kara & Rich jumped aboard the Watercolor boat and sailed into the darkness.

Summer family sessions are in full force at the beach, and we have dates still available! This wonderful family visited Blue Mountain Beach in South Walton recently, and gave us lots of prettiness to photograph. The first family grandson “Jack” was the star of their session, and the apple of his grandparents eye.
Aunt Abby loves her nephew…
Of course Jack loves Grandpa too….
