We know that the quality of cameras and lenses we use greatly effect the quality of the pictures we take. Here is a list of what is in our bags:

Dan and Carina are Married!

Well, I woke up this morning with my head pounding and throat throbbing and knew right away that my son, Austin, had given me his cold! I knew what I had to do...take some cold medicine and my usual six shots of expresso:) Today was amazing! I had a phenomenal team surrounding me. Suzanne assisted me in photography and Brian did his videography thing. We all enjoyed working with Dan and Carina. They are so in love and happy! They only had a few weeks to plan their wedding and did a great job! Dan is being deployed soon. I hope everyone enjoys the show! - DAVID

Albums on the Way!

It is always a good day when a wedding album is completed! The process for creating the modern day, coffee table style wedding album is a lot more thorough than you may think. First the bride and groom selects their picture choices, which most say is almost impossible due to the thoroughness and creativity of our photography. Second, the book is digitally created with the client's style in mind. Third, the clients proofs their album pages online and make alterations. After the client approves the album for the second time, it is uploaded to Graphi Studio in Italy where they print, bind and ship it to us. Anyways, like I said in the is a great day when our clients receive their wedding album and parent albums! - COURTNEY

Kristi and Travis are Engaged!

I think most people would consider Courtney and I unique, but Kristi was surprised when I mentioned Bass Pro Shop as a location for their engagements. She asked for a unique location that would make Travis comfortable and fit their adventurous personalities. I think the shoot at Bass Pro was a blast! We went to the beach too. The weather was terrible, but we made the most of it. Click the play button below to see some of my favorites. - DAVID

Jason & Jennifer are Married!

I was so excited this past Saturday to capture Jason & Jennifer's wedding day! David and I had the pleasure taking some pre-wedding bridal portraits with Jen ... and I have been waiting "patiently" ever since to post the images! The wedding took place in the gorgeous First Baptist Church of Pensacola, and the reception was at MySpayce in Pensacola! The details that they put into their day were beautiful, and it was fun capturing them. Thank you Jason & Jen and their parents for letting David and I be a part of it all. We think the pictures came out amazing. We hope you do too!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures and a slideshow at the end!

Here are a few of my fav's, and there is a slideshow at the end!
