Documentary Wedding Photography

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. Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_002Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_003Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_004Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_005Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_006Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_007Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_008Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_009Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_010Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_011Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_012Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_013Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_014Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_015Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_016Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_017Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_018Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_019Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_020Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_021Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_022Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_023Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_024Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_025Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_026Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_027Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_028Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_029Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_030Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_031Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_032Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_033Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_034Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_035Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_036Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_037Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_038Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_039Santa rosa Beach Wedding photography_040

Linsey and Matthew’s Destin Wedding

fall weddingWe were totally grooving over Linsey and Matthew’s Destin wedding this fall. After a beautiful church wedding in Shalimar, Fl, the reception was at the Hurlburt Soundside Club. Both venues were very nice.  Our team left no moment undocumented from getting ready to the sweet kiss at the alter and onto some fun and funky dancing!

Linsey and Matthew wanted the wonderful tradition of a church wedding in her home church combined with the spaciousness of the Soundside Club where their many guests could dance, eat and socialize without being crowded.

Fall weddings are very popular for our destination wedding photography clients in this area. The weather is usually warm in October http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/destin-fl/32541/october-weather/2231011 and it as a rule is not our rainy season. couple boudiour photography_008couple boudiour photography_009couple boudiour photography_010couple boudiour photography_011couple boudiour photography_012couple boudiour photography_013couple boudiour photography_014couple boudiour photography_015couple boudiour photography_016couple boudiour photography_017couple boudiour photography_018couple boudiour photography_019couple boudiour photography_020couple boudiour photography_021couple boudiour photography_022couple boudiour photography_023couple boudiour photography_024couple boudiour photography_025couple boudiour photography_026couple boudiour photography_027couple boudiour photography_028couple boudiour photography_029couple boudiour photography_030couple boudiour photography_031couple boudiour photography_032couple boudiour photography_033couple boudiour photography_034couple boudiour photography_035couple boudiour photography_036couple boudiour photography_037couple boudiour photography_038couple boudiour photography_039

Destin Wedding Photography |Fun Destination Wedding | Destin Fl

Destination Wedding PhotographyI love this fall wedding!!! Pamela and Craig along with their friends and family were so much fun!!! After talking to Pamela on the phone the first time, I knew she was a woman who exuded an awesome positive energy and also knew how to have fun! The destination wedding was hosted at a spacious home on Gulf Shore Drive in Destin, FL overlooking the Destin Harbor. What a romantic wedding location!  Our team arrived and enjoyed documenting Pamela, Craig, their wedding party and guests at the home. Having a great wedding team is important to me. I choose to do this, because getting all of the angles and views provides a well rounded wedding photography service for my clients.

Pamela also has an eye for details. Her table arrangements were a impecciably chosen. I enjoyed reading the messages clipped to the menu by decorated clothes pins. It was very adorable!!! The china plates and chargers were a sweet pattern that boded well with the ease and casual aura of the outside deck reception. It was a classic meets shabby chic motif that worked very well.

In all we had a wonderful time with this Destin wedding. Thank you Pamela and Craig for allowing us the honor of documenting your wedding day!

Cutting Edge Senior Portrait Photography |Class of 2016| Destin Fl

Destin Photography

You’ve spent hours online researching senior portrait studios, skimmed the obsolete dusty phone book for studios as well, maybe you’ve seen a couple Facebook ads about senior portraits  or are thinking about using your BFF, but you’re still not sure who to choose. We’d like to take a moment to explain to you all about the senior portrait process.

The most important thing you’ll want to keep in mind is if the studio matches your personal style. You want to make sure they’re able to deliver the images you are looking for. While looking at a studio’s portfolio helps, talking to them and seeing if your vision matches their capabilities is also a good idea. Here at Mari Darr~Welch: Modern Photojournalist we believe every senior is different so our sessions are custom tailored to you. You wont get the same pictures as your friends, with the same effects and the same textures like you’d get with a bigger cookie-cutter studio that the schools try to force on you. Mari herself  takes the time to scout out new locations for a completely unique look. Imagine if you went with a bigger studio and chose an image for your senior yearbook photo that was the same as someone else at your school who also went to that studio.  You’re an individual and your portraits should capture you.

What else sets us apart? The fact we have one of the last free standing actual full-service photo studios in the area. For your portrait session, we are able to create some awesome and imaginative studio shots as well as on-location (such as parks, beaches, countrysides and alleyways).

So what are you waiting for? Give Mari Darr~Welch: Modern Photojournalist a call today to schedule your personalized senior session. 850-699-3403
