Jamie & Suz // Winter Park Racquet Club / Rollins Chapel Wedding

Jamie & Suz, man what is there even to say? Sometimes you just get lucky & I mean REALLY lucky.  From the moment I met them in their Brooklyn walkup, we clicked. Throughout the whole process, Suz texted me photos of her dress, her accessories and highlights from her Bachelorette weekend. She even sent me a care package when I moved into my new house- this girl is beyond thoughtful. By the time the wedding came, I felt like I was there to watch my friend get married rather than be a random vendor. 

This is what I hope for with all my couples & I'm so blessed that it's usually the case, but Jamie & Suz just went above & beyond making me feel at home. 

Their wedding was amazing & one HECK of a party. Anytime the night ends in half the wedding guests jumping into a pool is a MAJOR win in my book. It couldn't get better than this. 

Jamie & Suz- ya'll are warm, welcoming, alive & have the most contagious excitement for life. Knowing ya'll has been a blast & I can't wait for many more hang times to come! 

Ps. Shout out to Rachel Burkhart, second shooter extraordinaire!

Neal & Michaela // Santa Barbara, California Greenhouse Wedding

Driving up the winding road to the Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm in Santa Barbara, I could see the greenhouses, the cactus fields, & the coastal cliffs. My heart was exploding with excitement & I thought "there could not be a more magical day". 

Turns out my gut was right- it was perfect beyond perfect. 

Michaela & Neal treated us like family & their friends did the same with no exception. Left & right I was offered food, wine, & hugs. I even ended the evening on the dance floor sandwiched between Michaela & one of her bridesmaids talking about how sad we were to leave each other because we'd had so much fun. 

Neal & Michaela share a sweet love & so intentionally created the most beautifully designed & special day. There really are no words, so here is about a million images to tell the story for you. Enjoy!

Ps. HUGE shout out to Jamie English for being the most epic second shooter, assistant, & friend I could have asked for on this day. She's so talented! This day was also made most epic by coordinator/event planner extraordinaire Tyler Speier & videography master John Burman. It was a dream team on all accounts!

The Robertsons // At Home Family & Newborn

Two years ago, we woke before the sun & took engagement photos in the foggy, dewy light of morning. Then a few months after that, I watched as they promised forever on a St. Augustine rooftop. I was so excited when Christen told me she was pregnant & even more excited when she asked me to do maternity & newborn photos. 

Baby Clyde is a gem & it was so fun watching Bryan & Christen as parents. I'm so thankful to join them in these milestones & hope there are many more. 

Now enough words, just go look at these sweeties!

Anthony & Caroline // Classy Bramble Tree Estate Wedding

It was a sunny day in mid- March at the lovely Bramble Tree Estate. After exchanging vows, Anthony & Caroline walked back down the aisle with tears in their eyes. They had a few moments before their friends & family rushed to hug & congratulate them. They stood tearfully embracing one another, both of their eyes filled with such gratitude and appreciation. 

This was my favorite memory of the day- a quiet moment aways from all the to-do, just 2 people in awe of one another & soaking in the joy of new life together. 

Anthony & Caroline, you are both so lovely. Thank you for letting me be a part of your story. <3

Todd & Jess // Joshua Tree Lovers

It was a Wednesday in late February when Todd & Jess met me in Joshua Tree. We arrived right as the clouds broke & the last light of day dropped behind the mountains. It was windy & cold, but Todd & Jess didn't seem to mind one bit. We talked, climbed some rocks, shared jackets, & didn't stop shooting till there wasn't a drop of light left in the sky. 

This was such a fun shoot for me & I'm so thankful to have met these two & gotten to play in such a magical place. <3

David & Tara // The Acre Orlando Wedding

David and Tara's wedding day was such a sweet one for me. I've known Tara since high school & while we weren't super close, it's been fun to keep up with her life from afar. She is one of those people who always makes me smile whenever I run into her around town. She is always so friendly and kind. 

When she inquired with me for her wedding, I was so thrilled, but I was even more excited when I was able to meet David & see how sweetly he loved her. 

Watching Tara, her son Eli, & David become a new family was one of those unforgettable sacred moments for me. I won't soon forget watching tears roll down Eil's cheek as he watched his mom say her vows or the way he cried from the sheer joy of "getting the dad he's always prayed for". It was such a beautiful, hope filled day & every time I look through these images, I feel it in my heart all over again. 

I hope you do too.

Ps. Huge shout out to Jeannie Albers for being an epic second shooter on this one!! <3
