St Augustine Wedding | Allie & Scott are married!

Allie & Scott are one of the sweetest couples I know.  These high school sweet hearts are meant for one another and I am so happy that I was able to document their amazing wedding.  Allie and her mother worked hard to create a beautiful event with so many great details.  It always warms my heart to see a bride so close with her mother on her special day.  I loved seeing River House decked out in hot pink, green & damask.  They both come from the wonderful families and it was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with them as they start their new lives together.  I know they’re enjoying their honeymoon in Maui and I wish them a safe trip back home.

XOXO

St Augustine Wedding Photographer | Tiffany & Nick are married!

 Tiffany & Nick are one of those special couples who I clicked with from day one.  I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I first met them to talk about their St Augustine wedding.  Sarah Grace from The Big Event was a great matchmaker on this one.  I have enjoyed getting to know them and I can honestly say that I felt like I was photographing the wedding of two friends.  They embraced me with open arms and trusted my artistic vision and I’m so happy for that.  As I’ve gone through their images over the last few weeks, it has reminded me how thankful I am for being able to do what I love and work with amazing people like Tiffany & Nick.

Thank you both for having me spend the day with you and allowing me into your lives.  I wish you many happy years together and I’ll look forward to seeing you again soon!

XOXO

Club Continental Wedding Photographer | Kate & Mike are married!

All of my weddings are very unique for lots of different reasons and Kate & Mike’s Club Continental wedding was no exception. Early  in the day, the club lost power and was off for almost the entire day, with the exception of a few minutes during the reception.  Luckily I bring plenty of lights and seem to find light in the not so obvious places, Club Continental cooks with gas, the DJ had a backup plan and Kate’s mom brought an abundance of votives.  I have to really commend Kate because she stayed calm and the lack of power didn’t put a damper on the fact that she was about to marry Mike.   Kate has one of the sweetest mom’s I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.  Kate and her mom thought of everything and it shows in every aspect of the day.  There were so many personal details that she incorporated and it really brought a lot of personality to the event.  The weather started out very rainy but the closer it came to ceremony time, the sun came  out.   I was pretty happy about this because Kate and Mike planned to do a “first look” and most of their pictures before the ceremony.  I can’t stress how much it really helps to do pictures before the ceremony.  Kate and Mike still had their private moment together  which I think helps calm the nerves and it allowed them to move into their reception fairly quickly after the ceremony and enjoy more time with their guests.  Aside from the loss of power, the day really couldn’t have been more perfect.  Thank you to the Baileys for making me feel so welcome! It was an honor to work with such amazing people!  Have fun in Ireland!

XOXO
