Magical Carnival Engagement Session in Ocala Florida

When Taylor and Cameron told me they wanted a carnival session, I was all about it! I cannot tell you how excited I was to do this session. We rode the ferris wheel, ate cotton candy and can’t forget the bumper cars! Everything about this engagement session had me reminiscing my childhood.

Romantic Engagement in Brooksville Florida

Here are just a few of my favorite photos from Bethany + Daniel’s engagement session at the Chinesegut Hill Plantation in Brooksville. All I can say is this venue is GORGEOUS! Bethany did an amazing job finding such a beautiful location. When you book me as your wedding photographer, I am very open to traveling wherever we need to when it comes to special places for your engagement photos. Like wedding photos, these are keepsakes that you will cherish forever and it is so important that you don’t settle on a location just because of miles!

Botanical Garden Engagement Session in Gainseville Florida

I absolutely loved spending time with Ian  + Jessica and their puppy Danny Boy at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville. During our session we became brave and decided to let Danny free for the first photos you see below. We all thought he would stay put…but we were wrong!  This engagement session was eventful the first five minutes as we watched Ian chase Danny throughout the gardens because Danny thought it was a game of tag!

7 Questions to Ask Before Booking Your Photographer

At every consultation I show up with the expectation of answering any questions the bride and groom have thought up. I thought it would be helpful to piece together all the frequently asked questions I receive so that brides can think through these questions as they consider what some of the things they may not have thought of in regards to their wedding photography.  Each photographer provides different services, style and way of doing business so it’s important to discuss these things with your photographer so you both are on the same page about what to expect and if you will be a good fit for one another.
