Jennifer & Michael – July 2nd – Panama City, FL

Jennifer and Michael were married in the Catholic church over the 4th of July weekend which was very fitting since Michael is a Major in the Air Force.  Thank you,  Michael and Jennifer for your service to our country.

The Brand New Paul Johnson Photography

Hello Dear Friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to celebrate our new Paul Johnson Photography brand with us. We are so overwhelmed today. Very infrequently do we publish personally on our blog, but today is different for me, so bare with me as I try to write. Many times in our lives we will experience situations where we are at a crossroad and must make life altering decisions. This happened to us last year when the unfortunate BP oil spill devastated so many people and marine life along the coasts, Northwest Florida has been our home for 20 years. We began to search our hearts on what the best long term plan should be for our family. We researched moving to another city and starting over but this meant leaving behind our family, friends and uprooting our beautiful daughters Laura and Kayley from the only life they have known.

There were many mountains and valleys over the next few months. But then, we had an amazing opportunity to come to the home of Lara Casey’s parents to photograph a rare family get together. It was then that a spark ignited. A friendship was made. Lara, words can not express how much you mean to me and Paul, we wish a prosperous life to you, Ari and baby Grace. Thank you. We began a year long journey of homework, late night discussions, some very intense, design, redesign and more redesign! We stayed strong and faithful and all things worked together for our good and here we are a year later! The oil didn’t touch our sugary sandy beach, we have a beautiful new brand thanks to you, Lara, and Flosites and are more in love with each other having gone through this last year! So please, grab a latte and sit a while browsing through the fruits of everyone’s labor. In case you are new to Paul Johnson Photography, you can see our previous brand at Paul Johnson Blog Thank you all again! Much Love!
