Leah’s Maternity Session | Driftwood Beach | Jekyll Island, Georgia

Jekyll_Island_Maternity_Photographer_0249

Y’all it has seriously been my dream to photograph a maternity session on this Jekyll Island’s Driftwood Beach since the day I first discovered it on the coast of Georgia. I’ve done other types of shoots here but THIS was my dream session, and it was for one of my very best friends, to boot! This gorgeous mama-to-be took care of me throughout my entire pregnancy, and the stressful weeks of learning how to be a mama to a newborn. After I moved away from Savannah, she even bought a house just doors down from where we own our home and it kills me not to be next to her for every step of her journey. BUT I will be there virtually and physically as…

Lindsey + Don | Pensacola Beach Destination Wedding | Colorado Wedding Photographers

Pensacola_Beach_Wedding_Photographer_0208

Lindsey and Don had one of the most stunning beach weddings that I have ever photographed in Pensacola, FL, and trust that I have photographed my share of seaside weddings living on the great big peninsula that is Florida. I got to work with one of the most fantastic coordinators ever, Emily with Sweet Pea Events, who made the most of the day and planned accordingly all the way from Seattle so the timeline was flawless. I got to photograph Lindsey and Don in their hometown of Dallas back in April for their engagement session and we had a blast touring the botanical gardens at the Dallas Arboretum. Be sure to check out all of those lovely photographs here. One of the things that made…

Rebecca + Greg | Winter Park, Florida Backyard Wedding | Destination Fine Art Wedding

Winter_Park_Wedding_Photographer_0173

Rebecca and Greg are a fairytale couple and their Winter Park, Florida backyard wedding was nothing but a joyous occasion. Rebecca’s middle name is Joy and it just oozes out of her. You can see the it on their faces as the day was full of laughter as they focused their minds on their God-centered marriage. She was SO pumped for their first look that they didn’t do your typical walk-up-and-tap-him-on-the-shoulder, they RAN! They bolted as fast as they could into each others arms. The ceremony and reception took place in her parent’s back yard in Winter Park. They danced the night away by the pool, serving none other than the best barbecue in town – 4 Rivers Catering. Below you can read Rebecca’s fun…

Kester Family | Savannah Family Photographer | Savannah Botanical Gardens

Savannah_Georgia_Family_Photographer_0129

That pretty lady there, that’s Chelsea. I met Chelsea when I first moved to Savannah. I decided to get bangs one day just because, new move, new hair. Well, I had to google everything since I didn’t know anyone in the city to ask for recommendations. One day sitting in my home while Brett was at work I just googled hair salon and it turned out there was one literally around the corner from me. So I walked in, paid $7 and got some pretty banging bangs. (See what I did there?) With all of the upkeep that comes with the fun new fringe on my forehead I frequented the salon, making friends with the girl who rocked my hair. That was Chelsea. (If you’re…

Cynthia + Chad | Dunedin, Florida Wedding | St. Andrews Memorial Chapel Dunedin

Fine_Art_Wedding_Photographer_St.Petersburg_FL_0119

I have been busy busy busy these past few months in the heat of full on wedding season in Florida. I was thrilled when Cynthia first contacted me about her elopement in May since it was literally walking distance from my house. I have been getting dreadfully used to driving across the state, and all over the southeast to photograph weddings and, don’t get me wrong, I love the variety traveling offers to my portfolio. But sometimes, it is fantastic to be able to capture a wedding in the cute little town we live in. Dunedin has quickly become one of our favorite cities in all of Florida since it is just so dang cute. It is 9 square miles wide. That’s it. We have…
