Married in Pensacola Beach, FL: Josh and Beka

Sunset dreaming...

Josh and Beka, wed 9/12/2015.

Photography becomes easy when a beautiful couple decides to get married at one of the most picturesque locations in the entire area. Recreate any of these wedding photos with pen and ink and Josh and Beka's sunset wedding is completely Disney-ready.

I've worked alongside Rebekah at Levin-Rinke Resort Realty for about two years now, and throughout that time I've seen hers and Josh's relationship grow from a tenuous flirtation to a full-scale romance that went all the way to the altar. Annie and I have had the privilege to get to know them better and better over the last year, and this past summer they did me the ultimate honor of asking me to photograph both their engagement photos and their wedding.

Josh and Beka's wedding invitation... delivered to guests inside a film canister!

A better day could not have been designed. From the first look to the final exit, the entire day was picture-perfect. The ceremony took place aboard the Portofino I Dolphin Cruiser as the sunset sank to meet the horizon. Cool breezes prevailed and every guest was soon dancing aboard the boat as it circled Santa Rosa Sound.

I love this couple and I love the photos we made that day.

Ceremony officiated by Jack Kale. Catering provided by Terracotta at Portofino.

And, as a bonus round for those of you who read to the end, here is a shot from Halloween, when Josh and I competed in a costume contest as Deathstroke and Arrow.
