Romantic Old Spanish Villa Engagement Session


I knew that Mary Caitlin and Lucas would be a wonderful couple to work with the moment I met them! They are absolutely crazy about each other, and have the most incredible connection. I just adore the way they make each other laugh, and how Mary Caitlin thinks Lucas hung the moon. The two actually met in 1st grade but didn’t start dating until the summer before their senior years. They’ve been together for 5 years and when Lucas proposed at the lake house belonging to Mary Caitlin’s aunt, it was a total surprise. This groom-to-be went above and beyond to make his proposal a truly romantic one. Lucas built a gazebo specifically for that evening! He went all out by covering it with twinkle lights and when he got down on one knee to ask his best girl to become his wife, Mary Cailtin was blown away! I’m not sure it gets any more romantic than that, guys! As you can imagine, when they told me this story, I melted into a puddle!

The couple originally had their hearts set on an engagement session in a pecan grove, but changed their minds to a more downtown setting. I can’t say I was mad about it at all, because their old Spanish villa shoot is one of my faves! Mary Cailtin and Lucas were a blast to photograph. I had so much fun capturing their light hearted chemistry and truly enjoyed getting to know more about them as a couple. Lucas was on his way to Oklahoma the next day for work so I’m glad we were able to steal some time away just for the two of them before he headed out for a few weeks. We chatted over wedding day plans as we worked together and how the two just can’t wait to be married. I’m so excited for wedding day with Mary Caitlin and Lucas!

Mary Caitlin and Lucas - I can’t say enough incredible things about you guys! It’s so much fun being part of your journey to becoming husband and wife, and I feel so blessed to know the two of you. To say I am excited about celebrating you next year is an understatement! I hope you love looking back on your engagement session from last week! Big hugs, Shea

Timeless Engagement Session in Downtown Hattiesburg


I had been looking forward to Emily and Rob’s engagement sessions for months! They are such a joyful couple with a special connection and the truest love for one another. When I met Emily for the first time over coffee, I instantly adored her. She’s so sweet, down to earth, and has such an inner glow about her. When she told me the story of how her and Rob met, a smile never left her face. Rob and Emily met through mutual friends. They knew each other casually but were never introduced until one fortuitous blind date at Chili's that set the course for where they are today. Their friends, who were dating at the time, thought they may make a good pair and so they set Rob and Emily up on a blind double date. Their connection was immediate. They traded jokes back and forth the entire night and neither of them were trying to disguise how they felt about the other. The blind date take took place right after they graduated from highschool, and the following summer would lead them in opposite directions for college - Rob to Mississippi State and Emily to Southern Miss. While they ran into each other over the years, neither were ready to let their guards down. They traveled far away, lived in different states, and attended graduate school eight hours apart. The stars weren’t ready to align for them just yet but one day in January 2018, Rob contacted Emily and asked her to coffee. They were in Hattiesburg for the Christmas break. Little by little they began talking more until eventually FaceTime became the standard. Soon enough Rob asked Emily to meet him in between their respective cities for a date and, as they say, the rest is history! Emily told me that their feelings for each other never really changed, but timing became the important factor. They needed time to grow individually and time to mature. God truly had a plan for them!

Emily and Rob showed up to their engagement session looking completely elegant in classic attire. Emily’s off the shoulder dress and heels paired perfectly with Rob’s blazer, dark slacks and dress shoes. As the two laughed and enjoyed each others company while strolling the streets of downtown Hattiesburg, I was so inspired by their natural joy. It was as if the whole world had disappeared around them and they were completely alone walking hand in hand. After we finished up shooting in downtown Hattiesburg, we traveled to a beautiful pecan grove where Emily and Rob changed into their 3rd outfits. The bride-to-be looked every bit the blushing bride in a fun, floral gown and the future groom’s outfit complimented hers so well. The day was SO HOT, but you would never know it from looking at the couples engagement session. They made every shot look effortless, happy, and every bit as perfect as they are.

Emily and Rob - I can’t WAIT for wedding day with you guys! You’re two of the most adorable humans I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, and I’m so blessed to be part of this time in your lives! Thank you for choosing me to accompany you on your journey to becoming husband and wife. I hope you love looking back on your engagement session from last Friday as much as I do!! Big hugs, Shea

Charming Southern Wedding at Rosegate


One look at Tracey and Billy’s wedding day immediately gives you all the southern vibes! From the two story rustic venue nestled amongst tall pines to the soft florals to the carefully crafted archway in which the bride and groom said I do with a 12 acre lake as their backdrop, the whole event was designed as though it was plucked out of a fairy tale. Rosegate was the perfect location for the laid back bride and groom who told me when I met them, “We just want to have the best day with our family and friends with minimal stress in a relaxed environment. I’d say Mr. and Mrs. Billy Seghini had just that, and it was an honor to be part of their wedding experience!

Billy and Tracey met through mutual friends a few years ago and had an instant connection. As they told me their story, I knew I would love working with them. They’re both really down to earth, easy going, and love to have fun! The Seghini wedding day was a complete joy. I met the bride and her best gal pals on the second floor of Rosegate, and was instantly in awe of the grandness this venue boasts. The decor and sheer design is classic with elegant furnishings. As the girls enjoyed mimosas and finished up hair and makeup, I started away with shooting the details of the day. Tracey’s Essense of Australia gown was a dreamy design that featured a lace bodice, silver toned beading and a breathtaking tulle train. It was as if the gown was designed specifically for the bride. The groom wore a dove gray suit that fit him like a glove. The bride and grooms first look was pure perfection! Billy’s reaction was priceless, and as I observed the two hug for the first time since seeing each other that day, I couldn’t help but tear up. Billy and Tracey’s love for each other is so deep and it is one that will stand the test of time.

The bride and groom said “I do” with a crowd of their dearest family and friends surrounding them in an intimate ceremony. Every face had a smile on it, most had tears in their eyes, and the sun started setting at the perfect time. A cool summer breeze blew off the lake as they recited their vows while the birds chirped softly in the background. After becoming husband and wife, Tracey and Billy had their first dance to “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran and then celebrated the night away. The couple made their exit underneath a stream of sparklers and drove off into the night in a 1959 Ford Skyliner belonging to the brides father. It was the perfect ending to the perfect day!!

Tracey and Billy - I have loved getting to know you guys! Your wedding day was so much fun, and I had a blast being part of it. Thank you for inviting me to play a small part in such an incredibly special time in your lives. I feel so blessed to call you friends, and can’t wait until our next shoot together! I hope you love looking back on your amazing wedding day!!! Big hugs, Shea

Romantic Summer Wedding at The Barn at Bridlewood


I had the BEST time working with Jennifer and Thomas this year! Their July 12th wedding was perfect in every way and it was such a blessing for me to be part of it. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jennifer for years, and when I found out she was engaged I couldn’t help but wonder who the guy was that had stolen her heart. I knew he had to be every bit as amazing as she is, because Jenn is truly one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. From the moment I met Thomas, I saw how dearly he adored Jennifer. These two are absolutely crazy about each other, and it was obvious by seeing the two of them together. With every single ounce of his soul and being, Thomas cares for Jenn. She is his very heart. Jennifer looks at Thomas as if he hung the moon. He is her prince charming head to toe. There were so many special moments and details from their wedding day, and I was crying from the second I saw Jennifer in her wedding dress.

Jenn and Thomas met while he was a student at William Carey and she was a student at Southern Miss. When a tornado demolished most of the Carey campus, the students came over to the University of Southern Mississippi for housing and classes. While working out at the Payne Center, the two met. They bonded almost instantly and were completely smitten with each other. The couple reminisced about the time they met during their engagement session, and talked about how everything that led them to one another was completely part of God’s plan. Jenn and Thomas are a shining example of how Christ loves His church and they live to glorify the Lord day in and day out.

The bride and her bridesmaids began the day by getting hair and makeup done at The Abbey Salon and Boutique, while the guys enjoyed their morning at the Stables on the Bridlewood property. Once the girls arrived, they popped the champagne and everyone drank a toast to the bride and groom. The earrings Jennifer wore belonged to her mother and the bracelet on her right wrist belonged to her grandmother. Jennifer’s Enyoani gown fit her like an absolute glove and in her hair she wore a delicate veil. Around the brides stunning bouquet, a charm containing her something blue was given to her by the grooms grandmother. A spray of hydrangeas, peonies, and white roses adorned the archway under which the bride and groom would say “I do” and an entryway especially built by the grooms father and sister added the perfect touch to the ceremony location.

As the bride took the grooms arm after walking down the aisle with her father, the two immediately clung to one another and I was in tears again. From the blessings they received by a life long friend of the grooms who presided over the ceremony, to the communion the couple shared, our Lord and Creator was present in every moment of Jennifer and Thomas’ wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, the newly married couple danced to “Better Together” and then dined on a delicious buffet prepared by Elements Catering and Floral Design. Jennifer and Thomas then boogied the night away with their dearest family and friends while DJ Sky Entertainment entertained the group. It was truly the most perfect day!

Jenn & Thomas - I can’t tell you what a blessing it is to know you two! It was such an honor to be part of the most amazing time in your lives, and I will forever be grateful that you chose me to be by your sides. I adore you more than I can ever say. As you continue your journey as husband and wife, know that I am always here in your corners cheering you guys on, and that you always have a true friend in me. I’m so happy to call you friends! I hope you enjoy looking back on your wedding day! All of my love and the biggest hugs, Shea

Summery & Southern Blush Wedding at The Barn at Bridlewood


When I met Halley, I instantly knew she would be wonderful to work with! She’s such a ray of sunshine, and kind right down to the core. It was also easy for me to imagine that the man she had chosen to share her life with would be the best of the best, and even though I knew I wouldn’t get to meet Cody until wedding day, I felt as though I would instantly like him. And all of my instincts were correct - Cody was an absolute gem! He’s down to earth, easy going, a laugh a minute, and just a a great dude to know. Both teachers at Petal High School, they share a love for educating and inspiring the youth they get to work with everyday. Cody is a coach and Halley is his biggest fan! I couldn’t imagine a more perfect pair who is ready to tackle anything and everything life throws their way!

Halley and Cody celebrated their union at The Barn at Bridlewood and centered it around faith, family, and love. The bride chose blush as her main accent color and kept all of the days details classic and elegant. I was so inspired by the all of the little things Halley and Cody chose to include on their wedding day that were so closely connected to who they are not only as individuals but as a couple. From Halley’s cowboy boots to the Petal football themed grooms table Cody had, every little detail told their story so perfectly. I won’t lie - I cried buckets at their event and I know I wasn’t alone. This couple is loved and cherished by so many, and its no wonder - they are such a shining example of how Christ loves his church and wants us to love one another. My favorite part of the day had to be the toasts given by members of the bridal party at the reception. Laughs, tears, and stories from childhood were shared by the bride and grooms family and friends, and each tale was incredibly moving. They then danced the night away to beats played by DJ Redzone, the brides brother in law, and celebrated the most perfect day with those they love the most.

Halley and Cody - I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to find the right words to express how thankful I am to know the two of you. I feel like I’ve known you guys my whole life, so it’s hard for me to imagine that our friendship began just last year. You two love each other SO WELL, and will always keep each the other laughing. It was an honor and a privilege to stand by your sides as you said “I do” to forever. Even as I type these words, I can’t help but get teary eyed all over again just remembering your beautiful wedding day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to capture the most amazing moments of your lives and I can’t wait until our next shoot together! I hope your honeymoon was amazing and that you love looking back at your wedding day as much as I do! All my love and the biggest hugs, Shea

2019 Spokesmodel Cap & Gown Reveal at The University of Southern Mississippi


It was April 2019 when I met Skyla, Samantha, Jesse, Sydney, Karmen, Anna Claire, Colleen, Hannah, and Regan for the very first time! They were rising juniors then. It was pretty clear from the start that they would work together really well, but it was amazing to watch them become such a tight knit group over the year. These girls support each other, they genuinely care for one another, and are huge cheerleaders for each other. Their every bit as perfect as I imagined they would be and so much more! The 2019 Spokesmodel team did the most outstanding job of representing Shea Gibson Photography during their senior year! I am so proud of this group of outstanding young women, and I will always be grateful to have been part of such an incredibly special time in their lives. This March, they worked so hard to recruit a whole new wonderful group of Spokesmodels. I was in total awe of their efforts when recruiting the new team, and to say I was blown away by the 41 applications I received during the month of March is an understatement! It’s impossible to really put into words how thankful I am for everything they did this year, and it breaks my heart to know that our time together is over. As they head off to the next chapter of their lives, I can’t help but be excited to see all of the amazing things they will soon be doing in college. I’m so so proud of my 2019 team, and they will always hold a special place in my heart!

Sam, AC, Hannah, Jess, Colleen, Skyla, Regan, Syd, and Karmen - I will always be here in your corner cheering you ladies on! I still can’t believe how fast our year together flew by, but I’m so incredibly thankful for every moment I got to spend with y’all! Enjoy the years to come - have fun - continue to be fearless - and always remember to shoot for the stars! There’s nothing you girls can’t do! Love you always and biggest hugs, Shea

2020 Spokesmodel Meet & Greet at The Bay Bed & Breakfast


This years Spokesmodel Meet and Greet couldn’t have been more fun! The new team members and I gathered at The Bay Bed and Breakfast in downtown Hattiesburg for an afternoon of fun, food, and our first photoshoot together. This years group of girls are incredibly sweet and completely gorgeous. It is such an honor to know each and every one of them, and to be able to work with 22 of our areas most outstanding young women. The girls are from a range of schools such as Petal, Oak Grove, Sacred Heart, South Jones, Richton, Stringer, and Seminary High School just to name a few. Each girl is talented, academically successful, and has a true heart for giving back to their schools and their communities.

While the girls played in the photobooth and snacked on a spread of food including the most adorable cookies by Erin Bradley, I had the opportunity to get to know them, and I was even more blown away by how amazing each girl is! After wrapping up check in, I gave the girls their gifts with the help of three of my 2019 Spokesmodels - Regan Purser, Jessie Tisdale, and Colleen Ellzey. Then - it was time for mini sessions and the group shoot! To say I was excited to photograph my new group of girls is an understatement, but after snapping shots of each one of them I was completely pumped for their upcoming individual sessions! These girls are ROCK STARS when it comes to being in front of the camera! I can’t imagine a more outstanding group of young women to work with this year! We’re going to have SO much fun!!!

Team work makes the dream work! Also, a specail thank you to Erin Bradley for the delicious cookies she made!

Classic & Glamorous Blush Wedding at The Rogers-Green House


Bailee’s vision for her wedding celebration was so clear from the very beginning! She knew she wanted a custom made gown, for the event to be held in her hometown at the historical Rogers-Green House, and for the day to display the love her and Dexter share for each other and their families. The bride and groom tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on October 12, 2018 and chose to wait until April 20th to host their celebration so that all of their families could be present to celebrate with them. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect. The Rogers-Green House is a stately home built in 1903 and is constructed of redwood in the Prairie Style of architecture. The house is nearly 7,000 square feet and hosts a lovely garden area and terrace, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a staple in the Laurel Historic District. Complete with Tiffany light fixtures and extensive leaded glass windows, it was the ideal place for Bailee’s vision to come true.

The bride chose blush as her statement color and each detail of the day featured the pink hue. All of the details were kept super close to home. The bride wore earrings and a bracelet belonging to her mother and grandmother and the letterpress invitations were designed by her dear brother, Will. In her hair, the bride wore babies breath and around her neck was the necklace given to her as her “something new”. Bailee designed her wedding gown and it was stunning! The gown, created by Anomalie, had scalloped lace sleeves as well as scalloping on the back and neckline. The blush underlay was specifically chosen as a compliment to the day, and the chapel style scalloped train had a light and airy feel. At the waist, a thin blush sash tied into a bow in the back of the dress. Designed by Holly’s Flower Shop, the florals were a mix of roses, peonies, babies breath, garden roses, and eucalyptus. The grooms grandmothers handmade the over 100 linen napkins that accompanied the place settings. Every little detail the bride and groom included in their day had a personal touch from someone they love dearly.

The couple entered the celebration with their children, Isley and Paxton, and were greeted with cheers from their dearest friends and family. After their first dance, the bride and groom enjoyed a delicious dinner catered by Tabella Italian Restaurant and then snacked on cupcakes by The Bake Shop for dessert. Bailee and Dexter spent the rest of the celebration dancing the night away under the stars with their family and friends. It was truly a one of a kind event, and I’m so thankful to have been part of it!

Bailee and Dexter - I will always cherish the day I spent with you guys! It was the kind of event that my dreams are made of, and I am so honored that you chose me to be capture it for you. Thank you for letting me be part of such an amazing time in your lives. I hope you enjoy looking back on your wedding day as much as I loved being part of it! Big hugs and all my love, Shea
