Travis & Julie’s Wedding in Florida ✨

First Meetings Julie’s family has been precious to me since I first lived in Lakeland, Florida. I’ll never forget walking into their house for a Bible study, totally awkward and nervous, only to meet some of the coolest people EVER! Julie immediately struck me as witty, quick on her feet, and super easy-going. Those first […]

Cameron and Dorian’s Wedding in Idaho ⛰

First Meetings Note: It’s basically impossible to describe a wedding like Cameron and Dorian’s in a simple bog post! After all, it wasn’t just any wedding, but a reunion of old friends, a celebration of love waited for and won, and a genuine expression of worship. For those of you who want the full story, […]

✨Stephanie & Joey’s Wedding in Lakeland! ✨

First Meetings It is always a beautiful thing to witness a love story built on waiting patiently. Stephanie had made the choice at a young age to not begin dating until she was ready to marry the one God had for her, and on her wedding day it was easy to see just how much […]

Lysette & Mark’s Wedding in Tampa, Florida! 🎉🕺✨❤️

First Meetings Lysette and Mark met at a baseball game. It wasn’t a complete surprise though, because just one month before that, Lysette’s parents had gone to a different baseball game where they had met the tall, handsome and oh so single Mark. They put their match-making skills to work and convinced him right off […]

Autumn and Kyle’s Wedding

First Meetings If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that my FAVORITE place in all of Lakeland is Hillcrest Coffee! ☕ I’ve adored this homey coffee spot since day one, and if you like hole-in-the-wall treasures, then you are super likely to find me at this one! In fact, my part in […]

Katie & JC’s Wedding in St. Augustine

Katie & JC Every once in a while you meet a couple where everything about them just CLICKS. 🙌 I first met Katie while taking her family’s pictures, and I immediately noticed that she was not only fun-loving and kind, but also a woman of great style and taste (teach me your ways, girlfriend!).  So when […]

Cassandra & Derrick’s Wedding in Sarasota

2.3.18 It seems like just yesterday that Cassandra told a group of us girls that if she didn’t meet someone within the next 6 months, she would probably move back to New York. Not long after, Cassandra’s best friend (and future maid-of-honor) Sarah, introduced her to Derrick! Let’s just say, our girl didn’t move anywhere! […]

Lydia & Matt’s Wedding | Heritage Baptist Church

The Story Matt and Lydia’s journey began as a summer crush. They were introduced at the camp where they both worked, and although they were the awkward ages of 15 and 16, they left an impression on each other that was destined to last! The summers passed as they continued to see each other at […]

How to Plan an Elopement!

Elopement. Talk about a wedding trend on the rise! This, once-taboo method of marriage has now become a HIGHLIGHT in the wedding industry for adventurous couples all over the place. As a wedding photographer who has shot my fair share of vows around the U.S.A. (and the world!) I would be remiss if I didn’t […]
