I love photographing a beautiful Santa Rosa Beach Wedding. With so many venues to choose from, you can’t go wrong! Emily and Austyn chose Camp St. Helen for their New Year’s wedding. It was a simple DYI wedding with some great details provided by both talented mothers. You can’t beat that! Emily’s mom did some beautiful steel etchings for the signs denoting the cake, sign in area and food stations to name some along with catering the dinner. Austyn’s mom did the cakes and they really looked professional!
Camp St. Helen, located between Rosemary Beach and Panama City Beach is a quaint former steel company employee summer camp retreat that has now been turned into a state park on the Gulf of Mexico. https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Camp-Helen If you are looking for the “old Florida” look, this is a must see!
Although the weather was chilly for January, the love and emotion of everyone surrounding the couple was full of warmth. The Starbuck’s coffee station also helped warm guests. Since Emily and Austyn met while working at the coffee shop, they wanted to incorporate it into their wedding as well.
It was nice to be able to incorporate my style of documentary wedding photography with some fun portraits and high fashion as well. Of course I do this at every wedding and this is why I call my style modern photojournalism.
