Jessica + Andrew Are Married! | November 21st 2015 | Jacksonville Wedding Photographer

I was honored when Jessica and Andrew decided to hire me because Jessica's mama is a wedding photographer herself and made it a point to help her daughter find the right photographer who was a fit for their big day. Their wedding was absolutely stunning down to every detail. The flowers, the beautiful traditions, the details and decor were amazing and the whole wedding party looked fabulous. Not to mention all the wonderful vendors that helped make their day possible....

Ceremony + Reception: Downtown Jacksonville Public Library
Makeup + Hair: Makeup by Paulina Perez
Cakes: Sweet Theory
Coordinator: Dale Child
Flowers: The Anti Bride
Catering: Nonie's Catering

Special thanks to second shooter Heidi Ecklor for all you did!

This was the second wedding of the day for me so by the end time of 11pm rolled around - I thought my feet may just fall off...but it was worth every second. 
The hug I got from Jessica's mom, Vicki at the end of the night and how thankful she was to have me there was everything. I love my job...can't say it enough. 

Elizabeth + Jeremy Are Married! | November 21st 2015 | Palm Coast Wedding Photographer

Elizabeth and I met when I was shooting a birth story and she was the delivery nurse. We clicked and before I left the hospital she asked for one of my cards. She quickly contacted me and told me her wedding date and I was heartbroken to learn I was already booked. Then she told me it was a small beach wedding in the morning and she would only need me for two hours. My other wedding was an evening wedding. I thought about it and realized it was doable with the time chunk in between both events and then realized I was nuts for taking on a double wedding day even if one was small. However I am so glad I did because as exhausted as I was at the end of this long day...I was surrounding by amazing and beautiful people all day doing what I love. My feet were in the sand in the morning and on beautiful rugs as a dance floor in the evening. A crazy amazing day.

 (Next blog post will be Jessica + Andrew's which was the evening wedding that day) 

Congratulations to Elizabeth + Jeremy, you guys are truly wonderful. Thank you for choosing me to be apart of your day.

Kristina + Mike | Part Two | St. Augustine Engagement Photographer

If you missed part one of Kristina + Mike's engagement session, you can check that out here

Part two was a blast and worth the wait. We finally had cooler weather and no rain on the forecast (of course we had a random sprinkle toward the end, it wouldn't be Florida without one I guess) 

Kristina and Mike are awesome, beautiful people who have impeccable taste in clothes and end up making my job easy because they are so fun and look so damn good. The struggle is not real with these two ;) 

These two also have become good friends of mine and I love them both dearly.

I can't wait for their big day in March. Seriously, it's going to be stunning. It will be here before we know it!

I mean there really isn't a better way to end your engagement session than with pizza and gelato...
