How could I not be excited to work with Jessica and Travis, not only are they super laid back there wadding took place in one of my Favorite St Augustine Florida wedding Venues, The White Room!

 

This vintage Florida venue has everything a bride dreams of! With its waterfront location and roof top ceremony space, vintage brick walls and wood floors it is impossible to be obsessed with The White Room. 

 

Jessica’s bridesmaids wore a pale yellow that accented the sunflower bouquets and details’ of the venue perfectly. Her mother in law though of every detail when helping plan and decorate for their big wedding day. We had such a blast with Jess and her family, here are a few of my favorite captures of the day.

This October I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding in the First Baptist Church Gainesville off 39th Ave for the first time.  The church was beautiful and has an amazing private garden and outdoor open air chapel. The ceremony was tradition and held inside the church and the reception was at the Gainesville Country Club across town.

 

Chris and Alexis picked the First Baptist Church to have their ceremony for many reasons, one being that they both work there along with Chris’s mother. They also attend the church regularly.

 

This bride and groom had a DIY wedding that incorporated some of their favorite things like baseball! Here are a few of my favorites from their special day.

I could not be more excited about Gainesville’s newest park and perfect photo spot for engagement and family sessions! The Sweetwater Preserve is a unique natural land in the city of Gainesville, with a short hiking trail near the north rim of Paynes Prairie. This place is beautiful and the lighting is to die for in the wee hours of the morning.

 

Casey and Joe wanted a mix of natural and of course the campus back drop so we started their shoot off at the Sweetwater Preserve and ended the session on campus at the Ben Hill Griffin stadium, Go Gators!

 

Here are few of my favorite shots from their engagement session. I can’t wait to document their Sweetwater Branch Inn wedding this February!  Hopefully we will have much cooler weather then :)

This love story all started when Brandon and Emily vacationed at the St. Regis, Princeville in Hawaii. Little did Emily know Brandon had more than R&R planned for their trip. He popped the question in paradise and of course she said, YES!

Since these two love birds are from two different regions they figured they would have a destination wedding. What better place then the same location he popped the big question, Kauai, Hawaii!!

Destination weddings are definitely my jam for a number of reasons. I am a wanderlust and crave adventure and what better way to see the world, right?! So when Brandon (who happens to be a long time friend) asked if I would be interested in documenting their wedding day I was all in!

It was such an awesome experience catching up with old friends, making new friends and spending time with two AWSOME people, on their wedding day.

Even though it was a tad rainy and overcast this location took my breath away. What an awesome place to say “I DO”. Here are some of my favorite images from their big day for you all to enjoy!

Sally and Christy have an undeniable passion and love for each other and it was an honor to be part of their wedding day. Despite the challenge of shooting a wedding that took place after the sun had set (outdoors!), I was able to capture the essence of this magical evening wedding in Melrose, Florida.

These two beautiful and ridiculously fit women met at no other place than Orange Theory in Gainesville, Fla., where Sally is the Head Trainer. This happens to be where I met these two ladies as well! Their love quickly blossomed and now they are officially married as Wife and Wife.

Their ceremony and reception took place in Melrose, Florida on the couple’s property. The decorations were perfect for the setting and the romantic mood was set with hanging chandeliers and tea lights spread across the yard. They were married under a tree in their backyard with their closest friends and family present.

Here are a few of my favorites from the night! Congratulations Sally and Christy, thank you so much for involving me in your big day! xo
