Tara & Emma chose a destination close to heart for their wedding—they have been visiting St. Augustine for years and wanted to share this special city with everyone on their list (mostly from NY and NJ).Read More
I knew the moment I met Katie & Olivia over beers at Dog Rose Brewery, in St. Augustine, that we were going to be fast friends. The planned the entire wedding weekend, not only around each other and their love, but their families and AWESOME friends, who traveled from all over the country. The decor in the barn was super unique (and showcased their outdoor-sy nature), featuring US national parks at each table—and they even had hiking boots to change into during the reception. Olivia is in the Navy and they are about to relocate to CA. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for them (and to visit, of course...)Read More
Vermont is near and dear to my heart because Burlington is "home". Even though I spend the majority of my time in St. Augustine, where I reside (or traveling, as you know if you follow my journey on IG, FB or here), I spend at least a month every summer in Burlington. Melissa & Bri's wedding day was my first of my 2017 Vermont summer season. And what a great way to kick it off!Read More
Working with Ali & Marcie was like hanging out with longtime friends. We met over a year ago now and I am already nostalgic thinking back to our first shoot at the Iceplant and surprising shrimp boat captains on the docks downtown.
Their wedding was perfect. They rented a big ol' house on Saint Augustine Beach (on 1st Lane—one of the best rentals around) and were married at the White Room's rooftop right before sunset. I am so thankful to have met these two women and their awesome families. Their bridal party was full of nieces and nephews and their energy made the group shots really come to life!
Thanks to all the amazing vendors who made these two brides look awesome and rock out the whole day.Read More
I have to say...I have never spent 6 hours shooting an engagement session—until now. I just couldn't stop hanging out with Ali & Marcie. They are madly in love, hysterical to be around and we have similar taste in drinks (and pizza). We started at the Ice Plant to beat the heat (and to save the awesome makeup by Amanda Hopcraft Makeup Artist) and ended up at the shrimp docks nearby and later, at the beach— once the clouds rolled in. The night ended with a stormy Florida sunset (my favorite) and beachgoers photobombing our last couple of shots. :)
I am beyond stoked to be part of their wedding come November.Read More
Dustyn & Scott made national headlines being one of the first gay couples to receive their marriage license on January 6, 2015 in Florida. They live in Waycross, Georgia but LOVE Florida and come at least twice a month.Read More
Today marked a day in history but also a day in my life that I will not forget—seeing couples in Jacksonville, Florida who have loved each other, lived together and spent nearly a decade together finally able to say "I do!"Read More
