Hayden and Morgyn

It was a mid summer day and there was a flurry of activity in Morgyn’s hotel room. Girls, flowers, and hair accessories scattered the room. The day had finally come and though she and Hayden had already exchanged their vows months earlier, Morgyn was still filled with nervous anticipation.

The day could have stood to be a bit cooler, but what’s to be expected on a Sarasota summer?  It couldn’t have been more beautiful. This couple was so fun and easy to photograph. My favorite part: anyone can see that they’re best friends.  They love to be around each other.  And that fact alone put everyone at ease. Here are some favorite shots from the day.

So you are currently looking at one of my favorite shoots. The colors, the people… Seriously, there’s just something that starts to stir in me when I get to document people in their homes.  You wouldn’t think it makes a difference, but there is a physical change that happens to people when you bring the camera to them- not vice versa.  They are calm. They smile more.  They even get more creative.  Jason and Jen made my heart happy.  And wouldn’t you know that little baby Nate really likes me? He honestly breaks into a huge grin when I walk into the room.  And this kid has a killer grin that will melt a heart of stone. It did mine anyway. Did I mention anything about these colors?

So here is to Story Shoots at home. Here’s to the Godshall family for letting me in.  Here’s to many more to come!nategodshall-5 nategodshall-9 nategodshall-10 nategodshall-13 nategodshall-20 nategodshall-19 nategodshall-23 nategodshall-25nategodshall-2nategodshall-27 nategodshall-28 nategodshall-34 nategodshall-39 nategodshall-42 nategodshall-44 nategodshall-48 nategodshall-52 nategodshall-53 nategodshall-54

Morone Wedding

I’m just now putting this wedding on the blog.  Better late than never, right?

I love this couple.  Everything about them is sweet, gentle, and caring.  And they have a great story.  They met online.  I knew Trisha before she met Joe.  When I met them to go over wedding plans, I just looked at her.  She had this little glint in her eye that I hadn’t seen before.  And when she smiled, I’m pretty sure I saw one of her teeth do that sparkle thing you see in the movies.  Joe was in a similar condition.  They were smitten.  And I was smitten by their smitten-ness.  Don’t kill me for making up a word.

Here are the photos from their special day.

Morone Wedding

Fire Fire Fire!

I had the privilege of shooting Alex and Shawna’s wedding in Tampa, Florida.  The venue was perfect.  Tucked in the middle of busy Tampa sits a tiny brick building, which used to be the Tampa Fire Station.  I had a hard time keeping my jaw off of the floor as I perused the building for the first time.  The guy probably saw the hearts in my eyes as I admired the large open windows and the beautiful brick walls.  What a dreamy place to get married.  The venue didn’t disappoint and neither did the couple. They were on fire! Bad pun, I know.   Here are a few of my favorite moments from the wedding.

A Glance

I can’t believe it’s only been a little over a year since I picked up my camera in pursuit of something more serious than just haphazardly pointing and shooting.  Here is a recap of some of my favorites from the last while. It’s so important to look back from where you came.  And then to look forward.  I’m excited to see what’s to come.Image

Jordan and Andy Married

Jordan and Andy have had one of the most simplistic and pure love stories I’ve ever seen.  Since Jordan is one of my dear friends, I was able to watch their love blossom firsthand. After, of course, she turned his offer for a date down three times.  I look at these photos, I remember the afternoon.  Simply put, these two were designed for one another. See for yourself.
