Chandra + Brett Are Married | April 1st 2017 | Jacksonville Beach, FL Wedding Photographer

Chandra + Brett are seriously the SWEETEST couple ever. From the moment I had my meeting with them over a year ago I was so excited for shooting their big day and engagement session. They are both so genuine, real, beyond sweet and so made for one another. It was an honor and joy to be apart of their wedding journey! Their wedding party were so fun and her bridesmaids including her sweet sister, seriously made my day with the kindest words for me and hugs at the end of the night. It's weddings like these that I leave at the end of the night feeling so happy and fulfilled with what I do. They also had the most gorgeous weather for their big day and it was one of those weddings that everything just went perfectly - especially for getting married on April Fools Day of all days ;) 

If the only thing that goes wrong on your wedding day is someone forgetting Chandra's vows...not Brett's... just Chandra's and only realizing it when they were up at the alter creating a hilarious pause in the ceremony for her dad to run and go get them, then you are doing pretty good I think ;) It was a perfect "mishap" and their laughter over it, fit the vibe and love of the day including their beautiful ceremony surrounded by family and friends.

So much thanks to their wonderful vendors who helped made their day as amazing and effortless as it was...

Kelly + Darren Are Married! | February 18th 2017 | Jacksonville, Fl Wedding Photogapher

Kelly + Darren were my first wedding to kick off 2017 and it couldn't have been with a sweeter or more fun couple! Seriously you know it's amazing when the Winterbourne basically gets turned into a club at their reception (Jeff was amazing!) and you sort of stay after you're off the clock just because everyone in this crew (who I have worked with many of them before!) is just so much fun to be around. Their maid of honor and best man may look familiar since I shot their wedding in September and the always amazing Jessie Ross with J. Ross Events just makes every wedding so unbelievably gorgeous and fun.

 So happy for these two and couldn't have asked for a better wedding to start my year off right. 

So much thanks to the amazing vendors who helped make their day as amazing and fun as it was....
