Susan + Alvin {Powel Crosley Estate Wedding Photography}

Susan and Alvin are the type of couple you just want to be around as much as possible. They are always smiling and enjoying the moment. We bonded from our first meeting. In fact I can distinctly remember leaving with sore cheeks from smiling and laughing so hard. And on the day of their wedding, I did the same thing. Susan and Alvin had their wedding at the beautiful Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, FL. Friends and family came from all over the world for this special occasion. The thing that I appreciated the most about this group was that while they had deep traditional roots yet were so warm and easy going. They allowed me to be a part of the traditional tea ceremony as well the lion dance entrance into the reception. Their night was full of laughter, celebration, tradition and love. Susan and Alvin I cannot thank you enough for letting me be a part of your day. I had an amazing time and truly feel honored that you chose me. Here are some of my favorites from their day.

Special thanks to all the vendors who made Susan and Alvin’s day special

Garden Elegance Inspiration Shoot {Bok Tower Wedding Photography}


Top of the morning to you lads and lassies! I couldn’t think of a better way to start off the St. Patty’s day week then with a gold and green inspiration shoot. I have been envisioning this shoot for months now.  The idea was to create an outdoor elegant affair. Something classic yet approachable, natural with the upmost sophistication. I knew the best location for this shoot would be Bok Tower Gardens. There is a lot of history behind this venue. Edward W. Bok frequently visited the Lake Wales area during his winter retreats from Pennsylvania. Awed by the tranquility of the area he wanted to create a place the would touch the soul with its beauty and quiet. So he purchased the land and presented this gift to the American people February 1, 1929. Well what a gift he gave us, as every time I go to Bok Towers I feel a sense of peace and tranquility. I feel inspired and relaxed. If you haven’t been there I encourage you to make a day trip out of it. It’s a wonderful experience that you won’t forget. But back to the shoot :) I couldn’t have asked for a better team of vendors to work with, and feel so blessed that everyone took the vision and ran with it. Thank you to everyone who made the vision on my pinterest board become a reality. Here are some of my favorites from this shoot.

Abbey + Daniel {Casa Feliz Wedding Photography}

Well today I would like to invite you all to Abbey and Daniel’s beautiful Casa Feliz wedding. I am slightly smitten with this venue. It isn’t everyday I get to shoot at a historic Spanish style mansion in Winter Park, Florida. And I absolutely loved Abbey’s choice of colors, bridesmaids dresses, table decor, well to be honest, everything. Her style was light and whimsical. Even the looming thunder storms didn’t rain on their parade. Abbey and Daniel were able to be married outside.  And while the outdoor dining had to be moved in, everyone celebrated as if that was the plan all along. I love that. I could keep going but I would rather let the photos speak for themselves. Abbey and Daniel, thank you for making me a part of your day. And special thanks to all the other vendors who made their day memorable.

Virginia + Bear {Tampa Yacht and Country Club Wedding Photography}

On this beautiful Valentine’s day I thought it only right to post a super sweet couple and their wedding. Virginia and Bear held their beautiful wedding at the Tampa Yacht and Country Club. Virginia is the most beautiful person inside and out. And her day was filled with smiles, laughter, and happiness. I think one of my favorite memories from the wedding was when all the guests….No seriously ALL of the guests were on the dance floor enjoying the band. The music and energy was invigorating. I loved their confetti exit too. A perfect way to finish off a perfect day. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!

Also special thanks to all the vendors who made Virginia + Bear’s day so special!

Alyssa + Brian [Terrain Wedding Photographer}

This my friends was one of those engagement sessions where I left the shoot with sore cheeks from smiling so much. I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun I had with Alyssa and Brian during their engagement session in Philadelphia. We walked and talked, walked and talked, and did some more walking and talking. And as locales or light  popped out we would stop and shoot for a few minutes. Their cuteness for each other was so effortless to capture.  I am so looking forward to their wedding this upcoming Fall. This won’t be the last you see of this awesome two-some :)
