Lexie + Travis | November 12th 2016 | Jacksonville, FL Wedding Photographer

From the moment I met Lexie + Travis at our initial consult I loved their humor and how they interacted with each other and how we all vibed. Loved these guys then and love them even more now! Their day was sweet and beautiful and it was the perfect wedding to finish off my 2016!

Sydney + Stephen | Boston, MA Engagement Photographer

I met Sydney about five years ago when he was a groomsmen in a wedding of some dear friends I was shooting for. We instantly clicked and he literally makes me laugh non stop whenever we get together. He found love with Stephen (Who is amazing! Love him!) and they are starting their life in Boston together while planning their wedding for next year. Boston is my hometown and I usually visit every year anyway so when they suggested we do their engagement session during the fall, I was beyond ecstatic. We shot all over the place and Boston just has my heart anyway but including these two special people with it just makes me so happy. Even Molly, their furbaby great dane made an appearance (I'm obsessed with her)

I am so happy these two found one another and I love them both so very much.

 I can not wait to shoot their wedding next November in Boston! So excited!

Emily + Logan Are Married! | October 15th 2016 | Atlantic Beach, FL Wedding Photography

Emily is literally one of my favorite stories of a bride deciding to hire me. We met at jury duty last year. Yes jury duty...We had met briefly previously at a gym we both went to, recognized each other and then spent the next ten hours talking, bonding and basically had her bridal consult in the court house after we realized she was getting married and I was a wedding photographer. Not only did we click immediately but just had so much in common - it was meant to be. Oh and she has my birthday tattooed on her wrist. I mean seriously. 

I wasn't picked for jury duty that day (almost!) and she was but despite a long ten hour day...we had met and she had found her photog for her big day!

So needless to say she is the only bride that I had a consult with at a courthouse and then became an awesome friend in the process.

Emily and Logan had a gorgeous wedding at One Ocean and partied the night away with 2 1/2 hours of dancing with their closest family and friends. They know how to throw a party and their love for eachother was amazing to witness. 

Much thanks to their amazing vendors...
