ABout our Award-Winning
pensacola portrait studio photographers
Aislinn is the founder of both the Wave Photo portrait studio and our sister brand, Aislinn Kate Photography. She landed in Pensacola back in 2009 (by way of NYC, Texas, Yale, Atlanta, and Savannah). Her favorite things include champagne brunch, kittens, and red lipstick. She loves living in downtown Pensacola with her husband, 2 kids, 3 cats, and a million books.
Tiffany brings 10 years of photography experience in pensacola to Wave. She travels with a minimum of two (but often three) beverages, and will insure you are hydrated and fed in every situation. She lives with her husband and their three cats (one fat, one three-legged, and one whose name is only “Baby Kitty”).
Rachel is our resident artist, and she seemingly magically creates things like pottery and paintings, in addition to portrait photography. She diffuses oils, is the best mom her two daughters could ever want, and has the most infectious and free-flowing laugh of the team. She is also a baby-whisperer (seriously, her touch makes little ones fall right asleep!).
Ashley is our resident beach bum, flower child, and eternal optimist. She loves summer, sand, and sunshine - and children, and adults, and grandparents, and weddings, and basically life in general. she also gives amazing hugs, and takes amazing portraits.
Mel is our Client Experience Manager! Her spirit animal is a golden retriever. She is kind, loyal, lovable and can even retrieve the mail. Her warm nature will quickly make you a friend. Mel loves spending time with her fiancé Mike and their puppy Poe while camping, traveling, cooking, dancing and crafting!
Drew is our resident jack-of-all-trades (we call him “The Dragonkeeper” because he does more than fits into any single job description). He is a Photoshop whiz, a master gardener, and our bookkeeper. He also plays just about every musical instrument and knows the lyrics to every song ever (but especially those produced in the 90s).
Our Pensacola portrait photography studio is located in a pink Victorian home built in 1900. Located right on 9th Avenue, most Pensacolians will recognize the building’s unique turrets, aqua trim, and of course, PINK paint! We love the classic style and have maintained the exterior to stay true to the time period in which this historic building was constructed — but when you walk through the beautifully restored, original front door, you will enter a newly remodeled, modern, fully functioning photography studio.
We have a beautiful indoor reception area where our clients can wait, complete with a play area for the kids. Our baby room provides a separate space for our newborn and young baby sessions, keeping your littlest family members safe and giving you privacy during their first photo sessions. Our proofing suite is comfortable,relaxing, and lets you see all of your photos on the big screen so you can select your favorites (often with a flute of champagne in your hand!). The studio room is where we will take you for professional headshots, classic portraits, and lifestyle sessions.
Outside, the Wave Garden is an ever-growing maze of greenery, flowers, and vines. Our intention is to offer you gorgeous outdoor backdrops for your photo shoot, regardless of the season or time of day. We always have something in bloom, and our 200-year-old live oak is the perfect backdrop for photos on a hot Florida afternoon.
