Ocala Engagement Session | Eileen & Emil are engaged!

I met up with Eileen & Emil for their engagement session recently.  They decided on Rainbow Springs State Park near Ocala and it was a great choice.  It was nice to shoot in a different location for a change of scenery.  I am beyond excited about their October wedding at the amazingly beautiful Bella Collina in Montverde.  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.

Ponte Vedra Wedding | TPC Sawgrass | Lara & Steve are married!

I loved being a part of this wedding!  Back in November, I had the privilege of shooting Lara & Steve’s wedding.  Lara & Steve are the owners of Declaration Boutique and Events so from the moment we started talking about their wedding, I knew there would plenty of originality, beautiful details and a touch of romance.  Any time couples put as much thought and work into making their event truly unique and personal like Lara & Steve did, it’s always fun to shoot and this wedding was no exception.  TPC Sawgrass is absolutely one of my most venues and the team of incredible vendors they chose to help create their perfect day are some of the best in town.

Thank you two for having me shoot your amazing day!

XOXO

River House Wedding | Colleen & Will are married!

I could not have asked for a better couple to kick off the 2012 wedding season with than Colleen & Will.  It was a beautiful day with perfect weather and so much fun.  I knew from the minute I met them at their engagement session that it would be a really great wedding and it truly was in every way imaginable. They are so comfortable with each other and in front of the camera, which made my part so much easier.  They chose to do a “first look” and most of their photos before the ceremony which allowed me to take advantage of some really great light and they were able to make it to the reception that much sooner.

Colleen had a great team of vendors lined up to bring her vision together and River House was the perfect setting for all of it.  There was no shortage of smiles, laughter, really great music and dancing at their reception.  I love it when couples have a band and Cloud 9 was great to work with.

Thank you both for having me with you on your special day!  I loved every minute of it!

XOXO
