Acuff-Gordon Wedding // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Gordon!

They had a beautiful day that was full of friends, family and love!  The day started for the ladies at STYLE salon in downtown Pensacola, moved over to the Crowne Plaza while they got dressed all while the men were hanging out at Pensacola Bay Brewery.  Their ceremony was at the beautiful Old Christ Church and was followed by a reception at Heritage Hall.

I would put this one down in the books as a day that will not be forgotten!

Take a peek at their big day:

Last Call Pensacola! // We’re Moving // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

Pensacola!!

It has been wonderful getting to know myself as a photographer and getting to know all of you! I am sad to say that we will be leaving Pensacola in early 2015.

We will be moving on to Virginia!  We will be spending a few weeks in the Dahlgren, VA area in the spring and then moving on to Norfolk, VA mid-summer.  And I’ll be spending time in Dallas, PA in the fall! It will be nice to spend some time at home! :)

The good news: We still have some availability for January 2015! Contact me today to book a session!

Something to always keep in mind:  I am willing to travel! :)  Just think: your destination wedding can be a destination wedding for me too!

Ciara & Tyler // Camping Adventure Sneak Peek // Styled Engagement Session // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

Guys, this was so much fun.

Ciara knew I was itching to do something a little more customized and was excited for her and her boyfriend to be the subjects.  The concept was for a “styled engagement session” with a camping theme and I think we did a good job!

Tyler (a Pensacola Beach fishing captain) shuttled us by boat to an island where we set up shop and had a great time.

Here is a sneak peek:

Nikki + Jon // Engagement Session // Pensacola Beach, FL // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I met Nikki & Jon for a sunrise beach engagement session.  We had the skies working against us – it had rained leading up to the session, but cleared up.  Only remaining items from the session: cloudy skies.  Sooooo, maybe we didn’t get the sunrise skies we were hoping for.  At least it was beautiful!  The beaches were clear, the water was calm and emerald green and the weather was nice and cool (well, as cool as it can be in the summer here in Pensacola Beach).

These two were a lot of fun and were up for just about anything, including getting in the water!

Take a look at their sunrise engagement session:

Miss Oliver + Mr. Oberlin = Mr. & Mrs. Oberlin!

These 2 love birds had a destination wedding on the emerald coast and it was absolutely beautiful.  There was a threat of all day storms so they moved the entire wedding up by 1 day and had a sunset ceremony.

Here is a sneak peek at their big day:

Mr. & Mrs. Mallek!

 

Mr. Mallek contacted me because his soon-to-be-wife was coming to town so that they can get married!!  I was thrilled :)  When I posted the sneak peek, I posted it as an Engagement session because I wasn’t really up to speed on what their family knew.  :)

I thought it was so sweet that they were getting married and that he wanted to capture it with a photo session!  Sadly, I wasn’t available on the day of their elopement, but we were able to get together the evening prior to capture all their joy and excitement as their were gearing up to commit their lives to one another.

Mr. Mallek is here for training while {the new} Mrs. Mallek is finishing school in Wisconsin.  They will soon reunite in North Carolina!

Here is a look at their engagement/elopement/almost married session:

Mrs. Mallek had a contagious smile on the whole session, and Mr. Mallek was feeding off of her energy!  It was so great working with you two!  Thank you for the opportunity to capture such a special time in your lives!

And, of course, Thank You to Mr. Mallek for the service you provide to our country!  I appreciate your work and your sacrifices!
