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!

What do I say about Amberlyn and Troy??? A good photographer friend of mine Robert J Hil shot their engagement session and was already booked on their wedding date... so he sent them to me:) Amberlyn and my first phone, which was close to an hour and felt like talking to a friend! Since then, a friendship was built with them, great memories and a Destination wedding that was to die for. RAIN on a wedding day is all of what you make of it. It can ruin your day if you let it, or you can embrace it like Amberlyn and Troy did. Their ceremony got moved inside, no biggie, because in the end, they were still marrying their best friend! I'm so extremely honored to have been your photographer, and can't wait to see you again in March for Caroline and Brandon's wedding!!!! Venue - The White Room

This wedding was something else! I've known Cory his whole life. Our dads were Fraternity brothers and our families have been close ever since - they're my "cousins". When Cory and Susan were talking about where they wanted to get married, I don't think that there was any doubt that New Orleans was the place it was going to be! I'm so thankful and honored that not only did they want me at their wedding, but asked me to document their wedding weekend! It was such an honor! I always love shooting in new places, and New Orleans was nothing short of amazing! The character that the streets of NOLA has is like nothing else. That was one of my favorite parts! Thank you to Tiffani Jones for coming up with me and killing it like she does at every wedding! Venue - Montegut House Wedding
