This styled editorial took place on the historical streets and beaches of St. Augustine. Our goal was to create beautiful inspirational images for the bride who wants to be non-traditional without sacrificing the romantic element of her portraits.
tim + mollie's stormy engagement session
It stormed for three straight weeks before Tim & Mollie's engagement session in St. Augustine, but the rain did not stop this couple! We got wet and did some Notebook inspired photos that are some of my favorite to this day!
why details are important
Flat Lay may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of the wedding day, but these little details are just as important. Each one was thought through and planned out, and executed with love. They are party of the wedding story, and deserve to be documented.
No matter what kind of send-off exit you have planned, having a controlled exit is better than an uncontrolled one. What I mean by this, is how it is executed.

I drove out to St. Augustine to meet up with Nathan and Jessica for their engagment session. It was super cold and windy, but looking at these photos you wouldn’t be able to tell! We traveled St. George Street and had a blast. While the light was out it was absolutely gorgeous, but it faded […]

Pro Prints is an incredible print shop, and I’ve worked with them to create these gorgeous styling mats for wedding and product photography.

I had an absolute blast with Alex & Megan out in New Smyrna Beach for their engagement session. So many things stood in our way too, but we prevailed! First was Hurricane Ian, causing us to reschedule due to damage along the coastline of New Smyrna. Then our reschedule date was threatening thunderstorms and hail. […]
From the first moment I met Kyle & Bethany, I knew we would be good friends. As I ask all my couples at their engagement session: ”Can I see the ring?” They both showed me the most gorgeous Legend of Zelda rings, and they each had one. I absolutely loved this so much (being the […]
If you’re looking for a venue that transports you to the European landscape of Tuscan Italy without leaving the country, look no further. From the moment you drive through the main gate, all the way through the rolling hills and landscape until you get to the main venue, Bella Collina looks like you stepped right […]
I know this is a controversial hot topic in the wedding world, but I just want you to know that I am PRO first look. This is coming from someone who did not do a first look, though I wish I had. When I got married all those years ago, first looks weren’t popular. I […]
