I can honestly say that I have never shot with this much rain or laugher, but turned out to be the perfect combination for the St. Augustine engagement. Kate and Brad are an adorable couple and with an amazing sense of humor – we absolutely loved our time with them! We started at the Lightner Museum and I’ll admit, I like to start there because you’ll find a great yellow door at the back of the property, and it’s near free parking. We got a few shots in, but the rain came. We ran for cover under this old victorian home, which turned out to be a blessing. I loved the columns, the blue ceiling and a mosaic wall that maybe a new fav St. Augustine location for me. With every engagement session it is my goal to not only capture pretty pictures, but the couple’s personality. They made my job easy as we traveled through historic downtown and Kate should get a special award for walking around in those heels. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I had shooting them. I can’t wait to see Kate and Brad’s wedding – its going to be a fun party!
In January I had the opportunity to shoot a Savannah engagement session with the cutest couple. Tiffany and David had been dating for 6 years when David surprised her with a weekend get-a-way to Asheville, North Carolina. The couple stayed at a cabin and after a private dinner for two, David popped the question! I have know Tiffany since she was 5 years old – her and my sister Sam have been friends since kindergarden. I was so honored when she asked me to be her wedding photographer and when it came time for planning her engagement pictures Tiffany mentioned wanting to spend the day in Savannah. I loved the idea! Everything about the day was perfect (ok, so there was one time where we ended up on the wrong way of one way, besides the on-coming driver waving his arms frantically – we laughed more than panicked). It was so nice to walk around and find amazing walls and tucked away spaces that were so them. Tiffany and David are an equally amazing couple with warm personalities and the sweetest smiles.
The morning I arrived at the Jupiter Beach Resort I was instantly impressed with its beauty and old Florida charm. Jordan and David were married on a private beach overlooking the ocean. It was the perfect setting for the couple’s ceremony, even though it started to rain as Jordan and her father walked down the aisle (everyone says its good luck – right). Covered by the mangroves and umbrellas they exchanged their vows and before the first kiss shared a personalized handshake – it was really cute and totally them. They deserved a perfect celebration and that’s exactly what they received! Everyone had a wonderful time and kept the party going till the last song – seriously, Dancing with the Stars had nothing on their reception. I wish you both decades of happiness and it was an honor to be the one to captured your day.
Last year, Lindsay and Chad were blessed with a beautiful baby boy named Jaxon. It was a fun year watching him grow – we did everything from a Santa stocking, Easter on the beach, a pumpkin patch with tears and a cake smash that had everyone cheering along. Jaxson has the contagious smile and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him.
What a wonderful way to start the New Year! I was excited to travel to Lake Mary, FL and capture a new venue. The Lake Mary Events Center had great natural lighting and a beautiful outdoor setting on the water. Their day was complete with everything a New Years wedding should have; a great party and plenty of sparkle. I loved the centerpieces and the glittered covered champagne bottles. Your family and friends were so welcoming and made us feel part of the party. One of my favorite moments from the day was during their reception, the DJ had them play the shoe game and the couple’s facial expressions were priceless! Kim and Carlos, I hope your wedding day was everything you hoped it would be. Everything was so beautiful and I am so honored to have been the one to capture it.
