Chelsea & Michael   |   Lux et Amor   |   Pensacola Wedding Photographer


I’ll be the first to admit that I have a really hard time with blogging weddings. The problem is that there are so many images, each of which I feel needs to be included in the story. If I actually included all them all it would be more like a novel than a blog post. BUT I did my best to narrow it down to some of my favorite highlights from Chelsea & Michaels big day, which was chalk full of goofiness, gorgeousness and happy tears ( not to mention the most epic first dance I’ve yet to witness and some genuinely heartfelt surprises). My favorite part, by far, was the way that Chelsea and Michael kept looking at each other with complete adoration. I mentioned to Chelsea that I kept getting goosebumps while going through their images, because of the completely obvious genuine love that she and Michael shared, and this was her response. ” Awe that is so sweet. Marriage is serious work but I’m glad that I have him to work with me on it <3″ I’m pretty sure these two know what it’s all about.

And if you missed Chelsea’s bridal session look for it in recent blog posts, she’s quite the stunner.;)

Chelsea’s Pensacola Bridal Session | Lux et Amor | Pensacola Wedding Photographer

Pensacola Wedding Photographer  |  Lux et Amor  |  Chelsea’s Pensacola Bridal Session

Everything about this session makes me smile. I love, love, love that Chelsea wanted to include her precious fur baby, Tater, in her bridal session! I couldn’t have been happier with the location we ended up deciding on, and not only did Chelsea look absolutely stunning, she was a real trooper facing the heat and the bugs and the Florida foliage in her wedding gown BEFORE the wedding! She even climbed a tree for me which automatically lands one in my favorite clients list;)

FYI, she looked just as gorgeous on her wedding day, so stay tuned for the wedding eye candy coming soon.
