Navarre Beach Photography Team

Anneliese Elder

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.

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.

Lauren Hill

I’m Lauren. Married to a coffee & running enthusiast + Keeper of two wildly adventurous boys. Two 29 year olds + a 4 & 9 year old living under one roof makes for some pretty rad stories.

Traveling stole my heart at a young age & it is something I have made my mission to instill in my children–that, experiences far exceed possessions. And I’m a sucker for experiences. I’m the girl who will book a flight on a whim 3 hours before departure only to spend a day with a friend who really needs me or wake all my people up when its still pitch black outside just to drive them to the beach & watch the sunrise in our pajamas.

Chyrel Fogarty

I am a wife and a mother of two very busy boys. Although I have lived in Pensacola longer than I have lived anywhere, I still consider my self a mountain girl. I moved around a bit when I was young so in my heart my home town is Evergreen Colorado.

When I am not taking pictures, I am busy finding new adventures with my boys. We love to kayak, hike the trails of the National Sea Shore, hangout at the beach and watch the Blue Angels practice. Go Navy!

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.

Britne Brown

I’m Britne and I am originally from Baltimore, MD.  I have lived in Fort Walton Beach for about a year now.  I moved here to be with my husband who currently works for the military.

I am a energetic person who is always looking for the beautiful light in life and wanting to have my camera there to catch it.

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.

Erika Smith

Hi, I’m Erika. I am a born and raised Florida girl, living on the Gulf Coast beaches for the past 27 years. I’m married and my husband and I have 3 kids that keep us busy with school and sports. We are a huge soccer and baseball family and spend a majority of our week at the ball park.
