Guy Harvey Outpost Islander Resort | Islamorada, Florida


I love traveling for weddings and this time Sam and I drove south to the Guy Harvey Outpost Islander Resort in Islamorada, Florida. I was so honored to be shooting the wedding of my sorority big sister. Jessi and I have know each other for sixteen years and I was so happy to see my best friend marring the perfect man. Their day was everything you would want from a Key West wedding – blue skies, palm trees and an amazing party. One of the coolest parts was after the “I do’s,” the couple danced with their guests from the beach to the beat of a Junkanoo band (if you’ve never seen or been in one – I recommend it). It was a surprise that Jessi and Mike kept from everyone, including their family. There were so many personal touches, like the band, that made their day truly original. I loved her bouquet, which included tropical flowers and mini pineapples; the table-scapes had drift woods and the placeholders had guests’ names on limes. I wish these newlyweds all the happiness in the world.

Sugar Mill Country Club | New Smyrna Beach, Florida


For my first wedding of the busy season, Sam and I drove south to New Smyrna Beach to shoot at Sugar Mill Country Club. I always enjoy new venues and the opportunity to be creative. Ashley and John had an early ceremony, which meant plenty of sun. Now I’m not one to complain about having light, but sometimes too much can be an issue. Thankfully, I found a spot near the entrance with one little tree. It was just enough shade to capture my favorite pictures of the day. The best part about Ashley and John’s wedding was their reception. During the father-daughter dance, they broke into a line dance and the party didn’t stop there. Everyone danced the entire night, and I learned some new moves along the way. I wish Ashley and John all the best and know that this is only the beginning.

Riverside Warehouse | Jacksonville, Florida


Tracey and Troy had their wedding at a friend’s warehouse in Riverside. It was was a unique location that had a lot of opportunities to be creative. Her flowers were beautiful and even had an artichoke in it. I shot them near a rusted bucket, old bike wheel and tire I found on the side of the building – I loved the contrast. Their friend is an artist and had the coolest array of items in the warehouse. One of my favorite spots was inside with a white jaguar sculpture. I had so much fun with Tracey and Troy and their wedding was full of personal touches. Tracey made all of the decorations and their wedding ceremony had a bonfire were they had to write down a bad habit in their relationship. Then they each threw the paper into the fire. Tracey gave up “indifference” and Troy gave up “passive aggressiveness.” Once the vows were complete – the real party began. Their guest were entertained with a live band and the couple both took a turn behind the mic. This Riverside wedding had a little of everything and wish them both all the happiness in the world.

St. Johns, FL


I have had the privilege of shooting the Faulkner family for a few years now and excited to welcome their newborn baby girl, Brooke Annette. The anticipation was well worth the wait and she couldn’t be cuter. Brooke is such a cuddle bug and was especially happy when swaddled. For this shoot, I got to use the most adorable bows that were made at Lindsay’s baby shower and try out some some new cheesecloths that my sister Sam dyed. I wish the very best for this family and can’t wait to capture the adventure.

Yuma, Arizona


I get to gush a little in this post. My sister, Stephanie is expecting baby Gunnar in November. I am beyond excited and as a first time aunt, I wasn’t about to miss the opportunity to shoot her maternity pictures. Recently, my mom, Sam and I went to Arizona to throw Steph a baby shower. The challenges of planning and throwing a shower out of town is having to do everything: shopping, cooking, decorating all the day before. It went perfect and it was great to meet all my sister’s friends.

The next day was all about pictures!! I wasn’t exactly sure where we were going, but trusted my brother-in-law and his jeep to get us there. I found the hardest thing was finding shade. Its hot, sunny and a desert. Luckily, we found a dried riverbed with surrounding brush that made the perfect backdrop for this Arizona maternity. Ok, almost perfect – there was one very stubborn horse fly that was determined to follow us around. I fell in love with the golden light, rocks, mountain background and a dead tree that I couldn’t have placed in a better spot if I tried. We had a great time and I am eager to return and meet my nephew.
