I went to Harbour Island to shoot Allison and CT's wedding (which I'll post in the future, because its a great one) and Allison brought in her makeup artist from Salt Lake City - Vivian Johnson... Vivian is an insanely talented makeup artist and travels all around doing destination weddings and shoots, if you're having a destination wedding, she should be your girl, I highly recommend her!!! Vivian and I met the day before the wedding and then I ran into her an Jeff during dinner at our hotel. We talked about possibly getting up at sunrise the next day to do a little session for them... Man am I glad I woke up, because it was gorgeous, and they were perfect! We shot some of them and a little of Vivian incase she need some for her blog!
When Katie and I were talking about what she might want for her engagement session, like I tell all my clients, I want it to reflect you two... I asked her what they liked to do. She said that they loved the outdoors, exploring and hiking, and boom, that was what we were doing! A Florida Hiking Engagement session was in the making, just need to figure out where. I came across these caves up in the Withlacoochee State Forest in Brooksville. I had no idea that we had caves down here, we were going spelunking! I think it came out pretty awesome, love these two! Katie and Brett's Engagement session was featured on Junebug Weddings here!
A Look Back on 2014 - This is something that I like to do every year, it lets me relive the past year, and let it sink in a little. With all of the weddings, shoots and traveling, the year as a whole, in my mind, tends to blur. I feel that I've grown more this year than any other year, mostly as a person and a business owner. I'm still not the greatest at either, and it's a goal of my this year to continue to strive at it. 2014 brought be to some incredible new places that I've never dreamed that I'd go. And I've made relationships with people and clients that I'll cherish for ever! I can't wait to see what God has in plan for this year, the places to go and the new people to meet and get to know! I lift 2015 up in your name! I need to thank my special friend Tiffani Jones, for having my back at a lot of weddings and shoots this year, I couldn't have done them without ya! And the biggest appreciation to my wife and my son, Lincoln, for sacrificing our quality time for this thing I call work. You're the reason that I continue to strive to get better in everything that I do!
Crystal and Donnie had an intimate and romantic backyard wedding in naples. It's so nice to shoot two people that are clearly in love and has such a great connection! These two were no exception, you'll see below! Thank you guys for choosing me to tell your story! Big thanks to the one and only Tiffani Jones for helping me on this wedding, some images above are hers of course!
When Annamae and Keith first contacted me to possibly shoot their wedding, I was floored. They own a Wedding/Portrait Photography Business in Sarasota, called Annamae Photo. I couldn't believe with all of the talent out there, they wanted me! We hit it off with a bang, and the goodness just kept getting better with their engagement session here, and now with their Modern Selby Gardens Wedding... it took the cake!
