Wayne and Leanna

Such a sweet couple to spend the day with.  I couldn’t get over the perfection of this day or the simplicity of their love. It seemed to flow over to everyone who attended. Here are a few snippets of their lovely day.

Sam and Fernando Engaged

My dear friends Sam and Fernando are engaged! Of course, Fern was a bit skittish when it came to photos, but part of my job is to change my clients’ perspective on themselves.  One of my favorite aspects of my job is when I get to make my clients feel comfortable in their own skin, and usually they don’t even realize they are changing throughout the shoot! This is where great humor and peace come in handy.  Check out how cute they are.

Rentz Wedding

The sky was overcast and the air held a chill unlike the usual balmy days Florida likes to entertain.  As I walked into the beautiful old house to find the bride, I could feel that the atmosphere from within was nothing like the weather outside.  There was an excitement as I passed over old wooden floors to the room upstairs.  There sat the beaming bride, whose smile couldn’t have been hidden if she tried.  I had only heard snippets of how difficult the week before the wedding had been for her, and yet here she sat so at ease and overcome with joy.  Christina was a vision in her dress.  Ronny was a solid force of confidence.  I could see that there was nothing else they wanted but each other on that day.  “The week has been so difficult, but today I’m just so excited to marry my best friend,” she said to me with tears in her eyes.

A Tallahassee wedding.  Moody skies and the most joyful people.  I couldn’t have been more pleased on my drive back home that night.

Rentz 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

Jeremiah and Leslie

Jeremiah and Leslie are two of the most giving people I have ever met.  If simply meeting them didn’t give enough evidence to this, then their wedding day most certainly did.  Scattered throughout the crowd  sat many people who had once been homeless, broken, and friendless.  Many of them had received a sense of belonging through the lives and consistent love of Jeremiah and Leslie.  This couple.  They are amazing.

By looking at these photos, one would never guess that Jeremiah had nearly died a month before their wedding due to stomach complications.  It was simply by a miracle that we all got to experience this day.  These two have been such a blessing and in turn were blessed by so much love on this special day.
