They met by way of some friends, kinda sorta. They were both dating other people and even though they shared some mutual friends in their Panama City friendship circle, Emily and Cameron had never met. After breaking up with his then girlfriend, for some reason this girl Emily, who Cameron had heard a couple of his friend mention, popped into his mind. He decided to do a little homework (via Facebook) and after viewing pictures and checking out their mutual cyber friends, Cameron sent Emily an e-mail.

The timing of Cameron’s e-mail could not have been more perfect. Emily was no longer seeing her boyfriend and by her own admission, was in a bit of a life rut. She was new to Panama City having just enrolled in nurse anesthesia college. She didn’t have a a lot of friends and had broken up with her boyfriend. After long days at the hospital, Emily would walk the beach each evening pondering her life, the direction it was headed and wonder if she was ever going to find that special someone to share the journey with. Thats when she received an e-mail that changed everything.

In the weeks that followed there were dates, lots and lots of dates. The attraction for both Emily and Cameron was instantaneous and the relationship was easy, comfortable and lots of fun. Emily’s smile, her laugh and her huge passion for life complimented Cameron’s charming, vivacious and often downright inappropriate sense of humor perfectly.

Emily and Cameron, I am incredibly honored and so excited to shoot your wedding this November. Having been in your company the entire weekend, I know this wedding will be every bit as fantastically fabulous as you both, with a large focus on the celebration.

The location for Emily and Cameron’s engagement shoot was Panama City Beach. Perfect, until the thunder storms began to roll in the night before and remained the following day, the day we’d planned to shoot. A quick online weather check showed nothing but thunderstorms for not just that day but for the next week. A little deflated we began talking about a plan B, which involved looking a other possible dates, weeks from now. Then all of a sudden there was a break, a small window of a couple of hours where the weather did a bipolar u-turn and without hesitation, with hair and make-up done in record time, we were out on the golden sands capturing some engagement fierceness.

One thing I love about Emily and Cameron, is their ability to laugh and have fun.

Die! for the how stunning this shot is.

Emily, I can’t tell you enough how fabulous you are, hopefully now you see it.

And how can anyone not be thinking J Crew model when they see Cameron here?

I see gorgeous babies in their future.

Gotta showcase those sexy legs Em.

Emily laughing in the background, just cracked me up. Its just so her.

Hello fabulous diamond!

A couple straight out of the pages of a magazine.

I loved this little gem of a neighborhood Emily found, so much character and cuteness.

I’m not saying the photographer had to wade her way into the canal to capture these next couple of shots, but I’m not saying she didn’t either. Absolutely worth it I’d say.
