Jatana + Matt {St Pete Beach Wedding Photography}

As this three day weekend comes to a close I am left with an empty sadness. First of all, where the heck did August go? Second, who made up the rule that summer is over after Labor Day? Well folks we are changing it up, right here, right now. It is my goal for the next few posts to bring you bright, beachy, and sunny sessions. I want to live in an endless summer where flip flops are welcome all year round and the beach is an absolute go to during any month of the year. I guess its a good thing I live in Florida.lol. I’d like to share Jatana and Matt’s sunrise beach engagement session with you. These two are awesome. While they live in Chicago they have a huge love for the beach…..And for dogs BTW. In fact, their pup has her own instagram account @cuddleswithsnuggles. And while Cuddles wasn’t able to make it down for the shoot we were able to capture the two of them in the cutest of form. I loved their outfit choices and color schemes which matched perfectly with the scenery. And Jatana’s little floral headpiece just made me smile {must be the hippie in me}. Plus when you put the two of them together you get nothing but beaming adoration for one another. LOVE!!! Here are some of my favorites from their session.

Jess + Frank {Old Mill Wedding Photographer}

This is a wedding I will always look back on, smile, and reminisce. The first time I met Jess and Frank was 2 hours before their wedding day. As crazy as that may sound I have a good reason for that. You see, my good friend, Jennifer Baumann booked these two. She was planning to photograph and document their day. And about a week before Jess and Frank’s wedding, Jenn went into labor. So I had the privilege of stepping in and shooting on her behalf. And while I didn’t know these two for long, I can easily tell you that I LOVE them. They are such great people, easy going and beautiful #totalpackage. HaHa. It felt like I had known them so much longer then 2 hours. They have a way of making everyone feel welcome and important. So not only did I have an uber awesome couple but the location of their wedding was absolutely divine. The Old Mill is this beautiful piece of property tucked away off the main road in an oasis of a forrest and a creek.

Jess and Frank, thank you for letting me capture your day. Jenn, thank you for trusting me to your couple. Here are some of my favorites captured from their day.

Tori + Alex {St Pete Beach Wedding Photographer}

After just returning home from a trip to the Florida keys I think its only fitting that I post this epic engagement session. You see, I spent most of my vacation underwater snorkeling, scuba diving, free diving, and floating. I love the water, I find peace and happiness there. And as fate would have it so do Tori and Alex. They love being outdoors and in nature and are completely drawn to the water. Ft Desoto and St. Pete Beach were the perfect locations for these two. We were able to walk around in beautiful light and capture them in their essence. I love how they loved each other. You could just feel it in their embrace and the way they looked at one another. There was a great respect and love for the other. Of course things got super playful once submerged in the water :) This includes Alex picking Tori up and chucking her into the water. Tori, jumping on his back tackling him into the next wave. It was such an awesome session. Tori and Alex thank you for being so uh-mazing! Here are my favorites.   Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding Wedding

Kate + Drew {Tampa Yacht and Country Club Wedding Photographer}

This wedding puts the biggest smile on my face. It was everything. The beautiful bride inside and out. The love she had for her family and friends. The handsome groom who chose his dad as his best man. And of course I cannot forget the biggest eye candy of the night, Hampton, their basset mix rescue pup who not only stole the show upon arrival, but my heart :) I had such an amazing time with everyone at Kate and Drew’s wedding. The day was fun, energetic, happy and full of love for the newlyweds. Kate and Drew, thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to capture your day. And thank you to all the amazing vendors who made their day possible.  Asha and Marilyn I appreciate you both so much.

Allison + Jeremy {Abington Art Center Wedding Photography}

This wedding was a complete joy to photograph for many reasons. The reasons include but are not limited to the fact that it took place back home in Philadelphia at an stunning  outdoor venue, with a fabulous couple, in which the bride wore and uh-mazing BHLDN dress and GORGEOUS floral head piece. But I can’t take credit for this wedding. You see I was photographing it on behalf of Jennifer Baumann Photography. You see, Jen was over 8 months pregnant at the time which slightly restricts movement and level of comfort at all times. So I had the privilege to shoot Allison and Jeremy’s wedding for Jen. It was beyond amazing. Along side of  Alison Dunn Photography we were able to capture all the amazing moments from their day. Together, we endured plenty of rain showers and thunderstorms…. And to be honest, I would have it no other way. For we all can look back and laugh at the fun that was had. Allison and Jeremy were an amazing, laid back couple and a complete joy to be around. Thank you for letting me be a part of your day you two. And Jen, thank you for trusting Alison Dunn and I to capture this wedding for you. Here are some of my favorite images I was able to capture from their day.
