Till Death Do Us Part | An Inspired Editorial | Jacksonville Wedding Photographer

I am so excited to finally share these images...

Let me just say that I have so many inspired and off the wall editorial or styled shoot ideas but rarely make the time to actually do them. I made the time for this one and I am so happy I did.

I wanted it to be minimal in the sense of a perfect and small props except the bouquet which I made myself. Simple but striking. Why? Because the location spoke for itself and we didn't need to bring in a lot.

This shoot was a much needed creative reset for me and I am going to make it a point to make time for my creative spirit -- and sometimes dark ideas more often ;)

SO much thanks to everyone involved. Not everyone in this world would be up to go shoot and model in an old abandoned funeral home. But these guys were more than ready and willing. We were all honestly way too excited over it. Elaina even offered to lay in one of the coffins....a true trooper (I didn't make her) and both Tim and Elaina were champs as they sat in an old hearse looking perfect while tons of mosquitos flew around them. No big deal.

You guys "killed it" ;)

Sara + James Are Married! | April 22nd 2017 | Jacksonville, FL Wedding Photographer

Sara and Jame's gorgeous wedding day surrounded by their family and friends couldn't have been more perfect. These two are so sweet and the love their family and friends share for them could be felt through out the big day. Their ceremony and reception were stunning and the fact that we got to shoot their pictures at their STUNNING home made my photog heart so so happy. The grounds for their beautiful homestead were the perfect backdrop to shoot and we had a gorgeous day and weather on top of that. So excited to share their sneak preview and for them to see their final gallery soon!

So much thanks to these amazing vendors who made their day what it was...
