  • Welcome to Birdsong Photography

A few months ago I got to spend a couple of hours with Liz and Spencer in Jacksonville, FL for the engagement session. It was a complete love fest at first meeting for all of us, and the laughter started instantly and kept going throughout the entire session.

 

Especially during the dirty thoughts portion, where one person whispers something completely inappropriate to the other, and hilarious facial expressions ensue. (*Tip – dear photographers, don’t try this with people that have no personalities. It ends horribly, I promise. #awkward )

 

 

We ended the evening on the beach, briefly freaked out some seagulls, and created some magic with the last bits of light.

 

Such a great shoot with these two ~

I first met Sarah and Scott in Savannah, Georgia last year for their engagement session.

 

Come to think of it, I should probably blog that. Oops.

 

 

The second time we got to hang out was for their rehearsal dinner and wedding the following day in Florida several months later. Their wedding and reception was held at the absolutely gorgeous Eden Gardens State Park in Santa Rosa Beach.

The wedding day was fantastic, with the added bonus of getting to hang out with Justin Peay of Justin Peay Productions doing videography, and Shelby Peaden of Shelby Peaden Events.

 

The following day Sarah and Scott got all fancied up again and we spent the afternoon running around Rosemary Beach for a day after session, which will be posted shortly.

 

Sincere thanks to my dear friend Kacie Quesenberry for riding a grizzly bear all the way from Monfrikkentana to come shoot this with me.

Sarah and Eric had an absolutely gorgeous intimate wedding in Key West, Florida a couple of months ago. And by intimate I mean it was literally just the officiant, myself,  and Eric and Sarah for this particular shindig.

 

We spent some time earlier in the day at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, which is gorgeous, then held the ceremony on Smathers Beach and caught the sunset which is never, ever a disappointment in Key West.

 

Then, as with all good beginnings to Key West stories, we decided to hang out for the rest of the evening on Duval Street. Frivolity ensued.

 

 

I heart you, Key West. I big, puffy heart you.

See.

 

 

What had happened was…

 

 

 

It wasn’t supposed to rain. Only it did rain. Right at the end of the ceremony before Jessica and Chris kissed. And not some wimpy little spring time rain, either. This was a full on heavy downpour, and we all ran back inside and laughed about it.

 

But in spite of the rain off and on the rest of the day, this was such a great, great wedding. I absolutely adore these two, and working with Erin with the Destin Bay House, Vaughn with Vaughn Vanamburg DJ, and Florals by the Sea is always wonderful.

 

 

Jessica and Chris, thanks so much for letting me be a part of your day. Even with the rain, it was perfect.
