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.

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.

Brandon Baker

I’m originally from Daphne, AL.  After living in California for a year, my wife and I moved to Orange Beach, AL. We wanted to live closer to family and still live by the water.

I love traveling around to new places in my VW bus with my wife.  My favorite thing about photography is the places it can take you and the people you meet.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Linda Higgins

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.

Michelle Hatcher

I’ve lived in Gulf Shores for several years now, but grew up just outside of New Orleans. My husband and I recently bought our first little house on Fort Morgan and live here with our two fur kids.

It’s just the best really, to be able to tell stories through photographs. And it’s easiest for me to do that when my clients just relax and have fun! Whether it’s a sweet kiss, laughs that a family shares thanks to dad’s corny jokes, or a pup stealing the show… I think those little moments are the most important, and ones you should cherish.

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.
