BallenIsles Country Club | Palm Beach Gardens, Florida


You have love living in Florida. Especially when you can shoot a wedding in December and its a bright and breezy day. These Gators meet in school while studying medicine. Tiffany is a pediatrician and Daniel is working toward being an oncologist. They are the sweetest couple and so laid back. Because their ceremony was in the evening, it was important for us to get all the pictures in early. We did their fist look and portraits on the beautiful golf course of BallenIsles Country Club. My favorite spot was near a large banyan tree. Tiffany and Daniel’s wedding was full of tradition and remembrance. Tiffany’s mom passed away and to remember her, guest wore a small crystal ducks over their heart – that way her presence was felt throughout the day. I love the symbolism during the ceremony where the couple breaks the glass, which represents their marriage will last as long as it takes to put the glass perfectly back together (forever). Their family and friends made the reception with heartfelt toasts, silly photo booth props and the hora – the dance where the bride and groom are raised on chairs. It was a joyous day and one I will remember fondly.

Jacksonville Golf and Country Club | Jacksonville, Florida


I always start my day shooting the details, the primping and all the moments in between. My favorite part this morning had to be the shoes (her deep red bejeweled Badgley Mischka heels were awesome) and while shooting the “jumping on the bed” shot one of her bride’s maid fell off – it was hilarious and I’ll share that one Facebook. Ashley and Sean planned their outdoor wedding at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club and despite a sudden downpour, they kept their spirits up. By the time we were ready for their first look the rain was gone and the overcast sky made the best lighting. Ashley and Sean are a carefree couple with the best sense of humor. They made the day fun to shoot and knew how to throw a party. Their reception was complete with a live band, photo booth and frosting on their faces. I hope this energy stays with them forever and know there will never be a dull moment.

The Riverside Pavilion | Daytona Beach, Florida


The morning we arrived at Kari’s parent’s house, everything was already in full swing. The girls were curling, laughing and couldn’t be more excited – their energy was contagious! Kari and Chris choice to do a first look at a nearby park. It was a beautiful setting on the intracoastal, but windy was an understatement. Poor Kari’s care was whipping everywhere, however this couple were total pros and didn’t let it bother them a bit. My favorite part about shooting Kari and Chris was their enthusiasm and pure love for one another. They are a perfect match. They joined family and friends at The Riverside Pavilion; a charming riverfront location tucked away on the banks of the Halifax River. It was a joyous occasion and truly a blending of two families. I look forward to keeping up with Kari and Chris and wish them years of happiness.

Sugar Mill Garden WeddingPINIMAGE


Sugar Mill Gardens | Port Orange, Florida


Heather and Nathan dreamed of an outdoor wedding. That is exactly what they got this November at the beautiful Dunlawton Plantation and Sugar Mill Gardens. This historical site has 10 acres of lush botanical gardens, ancient ruins and a canopy of oak trees. Their ceremony was sweet and included a unity tree ceremony to symbolize the act of putting down roots, longevity and the strengths in their marriage. The couple’s reception was at the Riverside Pavilion located on the Halifax river. My favorite part of the evening was Nathan’s dance for the garter and Heather’s reaction.

Atlantic Beach | Florida


I met Patty and Neil down in Atlantic Beach to shoot portraits while they were on vacation. They were visiting from their home in Billerica, Massachusetts. High school sweethearts introduced by Patty’s brother, Bill. They have been married for 36 years and have two children, Kyle (26) and Kristen (20). Neil and Patty have been coming to Florida almost every year for the last 35 years and usually stay in Jacksonville Beach. They were the nicest couple, and I was so thankful for an overcast day. We practically had the beach to ourselves and with the best lighting for that soft beach look.
