Elena + Eric | Engagement Session
Elena and Eric will be getting married in Maryland next Summer, and while they hired a photographer there for the wedding, they wanted to hire me for some engagement portraits since they live down here in Florida...and Elena said she wanted to show all of her friends up North some palm trees.
We went to beautiful and historic downtown St. Augustine and walked the cobblestone streets to find some great places, but that also represented places they have been and like to walk around. I had a great time getting to know them both and documenting their love for each other. I wish them nothing but happiness as they plan their wedding day and start their future together! Here are some highlights from our time together...
Elisa + Oscar | Engagement Session
Elisa and Oscar are to be wed this coming October, and I can't wait to celebrate with them! I had a great time getting to know them today at the Engagement session. These were taken in beautiful and historic St. Augustine, FL with lots of great environments for them taking great photos!
I wish nothing but the best for them on their wedding day! Here are some highlights from our time together...
Katie + Daniel | Engagement Session
I love doing Bridal Shows and getting to meet amazing couples like Katie + Daniel! They have a great sense of humor and are beyond perfect for each other. I learned that on their first date to Disney World, Katie kept calling Daniel "David"...clearly not his name. So they decided to put "David" on some Mickey ears. When Katie's ears were ready, Disney messed up her name and put "Catia." So even when accidents happen, these two know how to turn a negative into a positive and just roll with it.
I'm really looking forward to their wedding in just three weeks! Here are some of my favorite shots from our time together for their engagement session at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Palm Coast, FL.

Alexandra and Scott put on such a fun wedding! The two of them are so great together, and it was a real pleasure to finally get to meet them after all of our conversations and virtual Skype meetings. Their wedding day in Lakeland, FL, though hot and humid, was a beautiful event from start to finish. The Amphitheatre in downtown Lakeland was the perfect setting for their ceremony, and the Magnolia Building at the top of the hill provided the best indoor/outdoor atmosphere to party into the night. The great thing was seeing how many friends and family who came with their love and support. The happy couple will be moving to Boston soon to continue their new chapter together there and I wish them nothing but the best as they go.
Here are some highlights from their wedding day...
Mr. & Mrs. Boonsanong | Jacksonville Beach, FL
I met Noom and Guy at one of the Bridal Shows I participate in at Sawgrass Marriott in Ponte Vedra. They were immediately very sweet and quiet when they approached me about doing their wedding, but as soon as they got deeper in their explanation of what they wanted and what their wedding day was going to be like, their excitement kept pumping higher. When they officially hired me at the show I was just about as giddy as Noom was because her excitement and childlike innocence were infectious.
Their wedding took place on the beach with a reception that followed at the Thai restaurant they own called Buddha's Belly. It was a very sweet and simple ceremony, and all eyes were drawn to the bride and groom as they preciously cried over their vows and made the lifelong commitment.
They capped it off with a fantastic meal and evening at their restaurant where everyone enjoyed the company and conversations. At the end of the night, the happy couple pedaled away on their bikes. Here are some of the highlights from their wedding day...
