Jacksonville Wedding Photographer | Molly & Michael are engaged!

I’m so excited about Molly & Michael’s upcoming February wedding!  All of my couples are very special but this one in particular is special in their own way because I’ve known Molly since she was a little girl.  Her family is near and dear to my heart and I am beyond thrilled to be able to capture this special occasion for her and Michael.

We met up a couple of weeks ago in Riverside for their engagement session because it seemed like a great spot, especially since their wedding will be at the beautiful Riverside Baptist Church.  I love the beautiful light and colors this time of year brings.  Here are a few of my favorites!

St Augustine Wedding Photographer | Antonia & John are married!

I loved everything about Antonia & John’s story.  During their engagement session I learned that they actually met nearly 20 years ago in Egypt but drifted apart and went their separate ways.  Thanks to the internet and social media, this October, they were finally married!  I always enjoy hearing a great love story!

The Vilano Beach house Antonia got ready at was amazing with the most beautiful light for me to work with.  One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is the “getting ready” time I get to spend with the bride and watch the transformation take place while she’s in hair and makeup.  It’s nice to connect and document the time before the big walk down the aisle.  Antonia is beautiful and has a great sense  of style.  I loved her decor selection for their Casa Monica reception because it blended perfectly with the rich tones in the hotel’s existing color scheme.   Their closest family and friends traveled to our Nation’s oldest city to be with them and enjoy their special day together and enjoyed a really great party.  Antonia’s sister and John’s brother gave the sweetest speeches during the toast.  It always warms my heart to see the love that the families have for the new bride and groom.

Thank you both for having allowing me to capture your day!

XOXO
