Lauren + Joey: 10.26.14 | Margaritaville | Pensacola Beach, Florida

You may remember Lauren + Joey from their engagement session in downtown Pensacola earlier this spring.  Lauren was in a cast and couldn’t put any weight on her foot, but with some extra help, we made it work!  It was definitely a session to remember!  Fast forward to this fall, she was all healed up and ready for her fairytale wedding to Joey at Margaritaville on Pensacola Beach.  Lauren has dreamed of this day for her entire life and you could tell she was not alone.  Her sweet mother and friends all gathered around Lauren as we prepared for the day and you could tell how loved she was.  One of my favorite details was the sweet bonnet that Lauren wore home from the hospital as a newborn, now turned into a handkerchief for her wedding day.   I mean, come on.  How precious is that?!  Lauren’s love of all things Disney was also incorporated throughout the day – see if you can find them all!  To Lauren + Joey – what a magical wedding day!  I hope you loved your “Disneymoon” and cherish these photos from your amazing day for years and years to come!  Jeff + I were absolutely honored to capture these memories for you!  2014-11-13_0001.jpg

We had a bit of a “crossover” during our pre-ceremony portraits and decided to give Lauren + Joey a sweet moment together before seeing one another at the aisle!

One the absolute COOLEST moments of the day was when we had our very own fly-by from the Blue Angels!!  We were just wrapping up family photos and I heard something headed our way…. by the time I looked from behind my camera, they were crossing overhead and between Jeff + myself, we were able to get the following pictures….  Lucky for us, we got another chance for an epic photo bomb later during their portraits (keep reading!!)

This time I was READY!  Fat Albert, which handles the Blue Angels’ support  + logistics (and is really an incredible aircraft to see in the skies) flew by on it’s way home, leading to this amazing shot – a favorite from all of my time in Pensacola!
