PALM COAST ANNIVERSARY SESSION | PALM COAST, FL

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE BOWENS! When Neena reached out to schedule an anniversary session, she mentioned wanting a beach. I knew that Palm Coast would be the perfect backdrop. Back in 2014, my husband proposed at this beautiful hidden spot. I knew it would be a special place to visit and show our children, but […]

Whimsical Winery Engagement Session at Ever After Farms

Wow! Pulling up to Ever After Farms, I was in shock at how gorgeous the blueberry fields were. For a moment, I forgot I was in Florida! Chante and Ben booked me a few weeks prior and asked if I had ever photographed a wedding at this unique wedding venue and I explained that I hadn’t but after seeing the photos online, I knew it would be a dream to photograph at! There is a gorgeous barn filled with a wall of beautiful glass windows overlooking the vineyard. Besides the amazing nature surrounding the venue, the farm also has a gorgeous swing covered in florals and white carriage perfect for wedding photos.

Ethereal Trailhead Engagement Session in Ocala Florida

Matt and Stacy and I sat in a Starbucks discussing my wedding collections and our love for dogs when Stacy looked at me and smiled ear to ear saying they were ready to book. I played cool, but inside I was SCREAMING! This couple was one of the cutest couples I had ever met and I knew posing would be minimal because they shared a love that exuded from them naturally.

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!

Ethereal Engagement Session in Bushnell Florida

If you would have asked me 6 years ago where I would be, I would have never imagined I would be a full-time Florida wedding photographer! It has always been my dream, but seemed out of reach. Now, I’m here and I meet with newly engaged women to discuss their wedding packages and I find myself enjoying the excitement of others lives!
