Shawna + Patrick | Dade City Engagement Session | Alison Epps Photography


Shawna and Patrick chose to do their engagement session in Dade City and around St. Leo University since they both went to school there and it has special meaning to them. You just can’t beat a big open field at sunset off a highway in Dade City to wrap up a session full of love and laughter. Dude city was full of hidden gems, and I just got to scratch the surface there. I am just dying waiting for their wedding in Jekyll Island, Georgia. If I wasn’t already impatient for it I am now!!

Lindsey & Don | Dallas Arboretum Engagement Session | Destination Wedding Photographer


Well I’m getting to scratch my travel itch recently with help from these two. I’m excited to share this engagement session from the Dallas Arboretum last month with this sweet couple. Lindsey and Don are getting married in June in Pensacola, and I can’t WAIT!! I am pumped to not only photograph them committing their lives to one another but get to watch it first hand. I was full on excited to meet these two and photograph for them once I heard about Don proposing to Lindsey at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris! (Yeah… you did awesome Don!) So I have certainly had my fun in Texas this past month flying out twice for wedding and engagement sessions and I’m still waiting for a…

Jillian + Chris | Honeymoon Island Engagement Session

Florida Film Photographer

Honeymoon Island is just around the corner from my new home in Dunedin, FL. Jillian and Chris drove over from Orlando to let me photograph their engagement session in this romantic, secluded island just off the west coast of Florida. You can drive onto the island, then you can hop a ferry or just peer across the small distance that connects Honeymoon island to Caledesi which was rated the top beach in our NATION!! In July my husband and I were able to fulfill one of our huge goals we’ve always dreamed of… we bought a boat!!! Since we moved over to Dunedin (and happen to live next door to the marina master at the Dunedin marina) we have been able to use the…

Natalie + Alex | University of Tampa Christmas Engagement Session | Tampa Wedding Photographer


I just had to get this post up before Christmas since Natalie and Alex decided to incorporate the holiday into their engagement session. They are getting married in 2017 in Missouri but wanted to do their engagement session while they were both here for the holidays with Alex’s family. The University of Tampa was a PERFECT backdrop with all of the lights and wreaths and fun decor. I told these two at the end of their session that they will absolutely have stunning wedding pictures with all the laughter and emotion they bring out in one another. I will you both all the best and have a beautiful Christmas you two!

Kristine and Jeff | Destination Family Session | St. Petersburg Photographer


This destination family session for Kristine and Jeff was an absolute dream. They contacted me to do a shoot for their first anniversary!! How fun? You don’t need a wedding, baby or special event in life to take fun pictures. I love that they value taking the time to do portraits throughout their life together. :) Baseball was something that meant a lot to them so we went to the stadium for some fun on the field and in the stands. We also walked around the park and downtown for a lot of fun shots there too.
