Perdido Key Photography Team

Josh Thurber

For 10 years I have been shooting family portraits & weddings, traveling all along the Gulf Coast and beyond. I love photography for so many reasons!

As an artist, I love capturing exciting & subtle moments in a unique way for my clients that for them, will last a lifetime.

Leslie Brown

Photography is a strong passion that I have pursued, fervently, for many years.

I thrive in magic of capturing an experience through my lens. With my own large family, and a gazillion images of them all, I never tire of recollecting moments in time, through the photos I take. It’s a privilege to do the same for others.

Anneliese Andrew

Hi I’m Anneliese, everyone calls me Anna (pronounced like Princess Anna from Frozen). I am a wedding and portrait photographer along the Emerald Coast!

I love creating art out of candid moments and capturing emotion that radiates through my images. Being in the modeling industry for seven years has taught me a lot about being in front of the camera and about being behind it. I enjoy using my unique perspective to bring editorial vibes to your portrait session.

Ashley Simmons

I was born and raised right here on the Gulf Coast and I call Pensacola home. I went to high school here, graduated from college at the University of West Florida and have continued to build a life here.

I have been shooting for over 7 years. Originally falling in love with film, I have continued into the digital era with a simple aesthetic.

Colette Baker

I’m originally from Michigan.  After living in California for a year, my husband Brandon and I decided to move back home to Alabama to be closer to family.

Photography has been my passion for over 6 years now, and what I love most is the ability to create a beautiful lasting moment.

Cody Hitchcock

I spent 12 years on active duty in the US Navy flying F-18F Super Hornets, and am now a Navy reservist/photographer/banker.

I was born and raised in and around Pensacola, FL but now call Elberta, AL my home with my wife and three boys.

Walt Loyle

I’m originally from Allentown, Pennsylvania. I moved to Gulf Shores in 1998 after a stint in LA. I spent most of my summers in my youth visiting grandparents in Gulf Shores. I loves the coast but find the Gulf Coast beaches to be the most beautiful.

When I’m not taking family portraits on the beach, I’m on the beach or on my bicycle.

Linda Zills

I was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and raised all over the country.  I decided to make the move down to the beach with my family after meeting with April and discussing career opportunities.  Best decision, ever!!

I really love to read and spend time with my family.  Anything that gets my kids interested in being outside and using their imaginations is what I strive for.

Crisco Zills

I’m originally from Decatur, Alabama and I’ve lived in Gulf Shores since 2012. April inspired me to move back to the Gulf Coast to pursue my art.

In my free time, I try to pursue other artistic endeavors such as interior design, crafting, videography, abstract painting, and karaoke.

Brittney Rush

I grew up in Southern Illinois near St. Louis, MO, but moved to the Gulf Coast 12 years ago, so that I could always work with my toes in the sand!  I had lived and worked in Los Angeles for several years and while I liked living on a coast, I didn’t care for the hectic lifestyle. My family had vacationed in Gulf Shores when I was little and it seemed like the best place to combine beautiful scenic beaches, and the hometown feel that I missed so much while living in a big city.

Michelle Hatcher

I’m originally from Buras, Louisiana (about an hour south of New Orleans). I grew up in the bayou, with lots of time spent fishing and satsuma picking as a kid.  I’ve been in Gulf Shores for about 6 years.

I love to read, travel (usually for music), salvage and refinish antique furniture, hang out in my back yard with friends and my dog, and spend lots of time at the beach.
