I met Alexa back in 2008/2009, when we worked together at Ale House. :) We’ve remained in contact over Facebook briefly since- and as soon as I saw she was engaged I was hoping she’d ask me to be her photographer! :) She is such a gorgeous girl inside and out, (oh- and I loved her ring too- and totally wanted to play with it!) Alexa and Chris are also huge Detroit Red Wing (Hockey!) fans, since Chris is from the same basic area in Detroit as I am from! With that in common, I knew we’d get along perfectly & have such a blast on their wedding day… and I was right! Chris and Alexa’s day was amazing.. a simple, to the point *but* suuuuper sweet ceremony, followed by some amazing formals they let us drag them around for (hehe!), and a dance-filled after party to celebrate the occasion. Oh, and be on the lookout for the epic picture in this blog post of Brent breaking it down on the dance floor, and teaching Alexa how to wobble! (LOL!) Alexa & Chris, we had such a blast at your wedding, and we hope you love the pictures as much as we loved taking them. Congrats you two!! xox

savannah + dustin are married!! | north hampton golf club | florida wedding | fernandina beach photographer

Savannah & Dustin’s wedding was the perfect day. The bride was beautiful, the weather was gorgeous, and the ceremony was very sweet. I knew I was going to have a blast at this wedding, immediately following Savannah & Dustin’s engagement session…they are so much fun together & so in love. What more can a photographer ask for? :) There were a lot of emotion evoking moments during this wedding. While getting ready, the bride’s mom gave her a BEAUTIFUL bracelet & earring set that they had discussed would be a new family heirloom, and the bride also surprised her mom with a special mother/daughter dance during the reception that pretty much had everyone in tears. Not to mention, the daddy/daughter dances as well as the mother/son dance. The bride and groom also had a cake for Savannah’s nana- since it was her birthday! :) Also I should mention, Brent and I basically risked our lives (and the bridal party’s!) with the beautiful formals we took out on the golf course. We rushed out of the reception with the MOH & BM to take some sunset pictures, and as soon as we got to the spot we were taking the pictures at- some crazy golfers started driving balls at the hole we were on! But nobody was hurt (thankfully!), and it was worth it. :) Thanks so much to Savannah and Dustin for trusting us with your precious wedding memories. We hope you love love LOVE the pictures, and wish you two the best of luck! xoxo

As wedding days go, they don’t get much more perfect than this.The combination of the beautiful location, stunning weather and re-united families that now live on opposite sides of the world made this even more special.Beautiful dress.

kristen + shawn are married!! | winterbourne inn | orange park florida | jacksonville fl wedding photographer

March 24, 2013 / The Historic Winterbourne Inn | Orange Park, FL

Kristen and Shawn’s wedding was *magical*. No, really… MAGICAL. There was an 80% chance of rain forecasted on their outdoor ceremony.  When Brent and I showed up at noon, it was POURING rain. The sky looked awful, and the ground was soaked. We were upset for our beautiful bride, and for the loss of picture opportunity at the gorgeous Winterbourne Inn. We were prepping to squash their 140 guests into one (not big enough) room for the ceremony. At about 1:30- it stopped raining. We were worried that we would still need to have the ceremony inside because of how soaked the ground was- but the ground unbelievably dried up by 3pm, and Kristen was able to have the outdoor wedding of her dreams- with BLUE SKIES and all!!! It was really some kind of crazy miracle, and we were SO thankful- because we got some *seriously* b-e-a-utiful formal pictures at the end of the evening!!! Kristen and Shawn, we love you guys and are *SO* over the moon happy for you. Thank you so much for trusting us with your wedding memories! :) xoxox

 

Had to take a picture of the bride and groom admiring the BLUE SKY, that was pouring rain and grey just an hour or so beforehand- AMAZING!!!

sarah + eric are married! | laytns land-n | yulee fl | jacksonville wedding photographer | yulee wedding photographer

March 2, 2013 / Laytns Land-n | Yulee, FL

I was SO excited when Sarah and Eric decided to hire me as their wedding photographer!! Her style was a perfect match with mine, & we hit it off like old friends right away. Although we always managed to get beautiful pictures together… I have to say, the weather has NEVER been on our side. When I did their first engagement session we were completely rained out. Literally, we shot in the rain until Sarah and Eric were soaked. The second time we attempted their pictures it was totally overcast and cloudy… but luckily, didn’t rain. And for their wedding day… it was *COLD!!!* I don’t just mean “oh, that’s kinda chilly”, it was BITTER COLD and WINDY. Probably around 40 degrees- and for us Floridians, that is about as cold as it gets. Sarah and her beautiful bridesmaids were such troopers with their pictures, and it was WELL worth the chilly weather! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, Sarah was STUNNING in her Maggie Sottero gown, and the reception was a P-A-R-T-Y! Brent and I were SO honored to photograph this wedding, and are so happy for the newlyweds! :) Congratulations Mr and Mrs Tanner… we love you guys! xoxo

Like I said… it was REALLY COLD.. LOL! this was a much needed  warm-up snuggle in-between formals!! ;)

*PSA: Prepare yourself for one of the most tear-jerking daddy/daughter dances EVER!!*

This was BY FAR the most creative (and awesome!) garter removals we have ever seen! The groomsmen took position- and once the situation was “secured”, the groom came in and safely removed the garter from his bride. ;)

Alison and Trent’s wedding day didn’t exactly go according to plan. Alison planned a February wedding because she wanted a nice chilly day, but it was the exact opposite! We’re talking 80+ degrees at the end of February (good ol’ Florida!). However, despite the warm temperatures, humid weather, and massive swarms of gnats that attacked us during their formals, we still managed to get some beautiful pictures that were totally worth the sweating & itching. :) Thankfully, the 60% chance of rain that had been forecasted all week held off- until literally the exact moment Brent and I left the reception. I mean literally, when we were walking to our car the rain began to downpour and we had to make a run for it with our cameras tucked under our clothes! Even if “plans” hadn’t exactly run perfectly, at the end of the day Alison and Trent had become husband and wife… and it was a beautiful ceremony that united them. We were SO beyond honored to capture your wedding day, Alison and Trent- and we hope you absolutely love your pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them!

Oh, and we also had a BLAST at this reception…it was quite the party. Brent did the wobble… (and the cupid shuffle..and the wop..), I ate some cake, and we all learned how to dougie! ;) ENJOY!

 Both Alison & Trent’s fathers had passed away. They had the sweetest memorial table for their dads. <3

I like them all, but the three of the cake cutting with the lights in the background are my favorites. They make it look like there were fireworks going off as if in a Disneyworld celebration of the stars.

The photos are absolutely beautiful! Alison is a stunning bride!
