Marcy & Anton | Vintage Chicago Wedding P | Western Springs Baptist Church, Chicago, IL

As I sit here in the Chicago Midway Airport waiting for my flight after a fast paced and emotion filled weekend, I am left thinking about my time here as I watched my life-long best friend marry the man that will be her new life-long best friend. 

My emotions and thoughts are going in a hundred different directions as I remember the events that brought Marcy and I together, the joys and struggles we have faced together throughout our lives, and watching her embracing her new found life with Anton. 

Marcy and I met sometime around 1999-2000. One of my very first memories of her was at our home church in Okeechobee, Florida …. READ MORE…

Samantha + Justin | Stonebride at Lange Farm Wedding | Dade City, Florida

I met Justin and Samantha via a publication that they saw my work in this time last year in Dade City, Florida. We initially met over Skype and the goal was to discuss their wedding photography needs. We did that, but, we also connected on a personal level and I love that I now can claim these two as not only clients but dear friends of mine.

Haley + Devon | Formal Wedding Portraits | The Lange Farm Dade City, Florida

Haley + Devon | Formal Wedding Portraits | The Lange Farm Dade City, Florida

When Devon proposed to Haley, they had already been dating for quite a few years and knew that they wanted to do something different from the norm. They decided to book a cruise with some of their closest family and friends and say “I Do” while touring the Caribbean! Because of this, they were limited on their options for photography and decided that they would find a gorgeous venue back home, book a special day to dress back up in their wedding attire, and have their wedding portraits taken separately from their Cruise Wedding...(read more)

Laurel + Bradley | Engagement Photography | Downtown Mobile Alabama

I am not sure if words can describe the love and excitement I have for this precious family. I have not had the pleasure of knowing them for a long time, but the short time I have has been a blessing. They are the type of people that make you feel like you have been best friends for life and you can't help but want to spend more time with them... (read more)

Bethany + Tommy | Lake Mary's Event Center | Orlando, Florida Wedding Photographer

Bethany & Tommy have got to be one of my favorite couples I have ever known. Sometimes, life doesn't work out the way you'd like and then all of a sudden something clicks and the missing pieces of your puzzle start coming together. This couple is the real life example of this.

Bailey & Nick | Downtown Fairhope Engagement Session | Fairhope, Alabama

Bailey & her mom, Cynthia, contacted me a few months ago looking for a photographer for her December wedding. We decided to meet for coffee and talk through details and get to know one another and there was that instant "click". Bailey and I joke that we are essentially the same person... (although her make up skill are WAY better than mine!) We connected over the mutual experience of being a "Preacher's Kid" (PK) and our love for 90's alt. music and Michael Buble. More importantly though, we discussed the wedding and her relationship with Nick. ...

Samantha + Justin | Engaged | The Lange Farm

I need to start this by telling you how excited I am to finally being able to catch up with work and share this blog. I absolutely adore these photos and this couple and I know that you all will too! 

A while back, in April to be exact, I had the insane pleasure of putting together a styled bridal shoot and a re-envisioned wedding shoot with some good friends, family, and a team of phenomenal vendors at one of my favorite venues to date- The Lange Farms. Those shoots were both picked up for publications by some of the best publishers in our local area (in fact- the wedding couple's images still haven't been blogged here because they are currently being prepared for publication by Gulf Coast Bride and Southern Bride!) and because of those publications, Samantha saw my work and fell in love with it....

Kayla and Dent met me in Downtown Fairhope on Sunday afternoon and while we were walking to our first shoot location I asked them if they would share their story with me. It's so important to me that I invest in getting to know my clients on a personal level and what better way to start that process than by hearing their very own love story?!
