Amanda + Stephen ~ Orlando Wedding Photographer

We recently had the privilege to go down to central florida for the lovely wedding of Amanda and Stephen. These two are so obviously in love, and the day was a true joy to capture! I don't think I've met a nicer couple. And put that with the fact that they were up for anything we could ask them to do, just totally made everything spectacular!! I mean, c'mon. It's the day of her wedding, and she's sitting on railroad tracks, hopping on the rail car, acting sassy, we almost didn't know what to do with ourselves, it was so amazing! Congrats to you both!

The Seamstress ~ Jacksonville Fashion Photographer

Fashion photography isn't exactly what I'm cut out for, for every now and then I absolutely love getting creative and trying my hand. However, I'm a big fan of the slightly unusual. I love when there is a slight bit of oddity about an image that makes you tilt your head to the side and just stare. It's my goal to do a collection of images titled 'Stereotypical Roles'. Quintessential females roles with a twist. Our first attempt was 'The Seamstress'. The images are absolutely stunning, and they were a blast to make! Enjoy, and keep an eye ou for more in the series sometime soon!

Stay tuned, also, for some behind the scenes photos!

We won the Bride's Choice Awards 2011 from WeddingWire! This means we are in the top 5 percent of Wedding Pros nationwide. Yay!

My Heritage ~ Jacksonville Photographer

I love photography. I always have. It gives us a glimpse into a moment, and the emotion that was present. It also gives us a look into the past. Old photos are amazing to me. To see how things have changed is just staggering! My grandfather enjoyed photography as a hobby, as did my father. And because of that, I always had a camera readily accessible to play with. However, one thing I have learned looking back through their pictures, is to step from behind the camera every now and then. Let someone else take a picture of you for a change! There are so few pictures of my grandfather, because he was always the one taking the pictures! But, we do have a few gems, and I'd like to share them with you today.

On their wedding day. He came to visit her family, and by the end of the trip, 10 days later, they were engaged! They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last June.

This picture is one of the most recent 'nice pictures' that we have of them both together. It's 20 years old. You really shouldn't wait that long to take pictures with the ones you love!
My grandfather passed away on December 17th, 2010.
