What Every Bride Should Know About Wedding Photography
So my fiancé Jon proposed last August (!!) and I’m currently in the whirlwind planning stages for our wedding this upcoming September. Over the next few months, I want to share some insight and advice with fellow brides about my experience as someone who has photographed/designed for weddings and is now planning one as a bride. Now while I know...

Moira & Arnie – Sweetwater Branch Inn Wedding in Gainesville

Moira & Arnie – Sweetwater Branch Inn Wedding in Gainesville
This wedding marked the first time I ever visited the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville, FL, despite the fact that I had attended UF for five years. What a gem this place is! I wish I had known of it while I was still a student. Speaking of Gators, Moira and Arnie also attended UF! So photographing their wedding was full of both pleasure and...

Augustina & Herb – Casa Monica Hotel Wedding in St. Augustine
I had the pleasure of second-shooting for Stephanie Moles of Chasing Jane Photography for the wedding of Tina and Herb at the beautiful Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine, Florida. Both the bride and groom had large wedding parties (10 each!), which contributed to the festive, familial atmosphere of the wedding.

Lauren & Jared’s St. Augustine, FL, Engagement Shoot
I met Lauren and Jared through a mutual friend who recommended me to the couple.  After our pre-shoot consultation, I knew immediately that it was going to be fun working with them since they had very easygoing personalities.  They wanted to take engagement photos in St. Augustine, particularly since that was where Jared first told Lauren he...

Our fourth GAAM show was a couple weekends ago on July 12 and it was amazing!  The theme was Final Fantasy 7, so leading up to the show I did several photoshoots with cosplayers dressed as the characters Cloud, Sephiroth, Tifa, Aerith, Cid, Barret, Yuffie, Vincent, Red XIII and Cait Sith. The cosplayers really stepped it up this time with...

Beverly and Dennis’ Wedding Photobooth

Beverly and Dennis’ Wedding Photobooth
I had the pleasure of running a photobooth at the wedding reception of my friends Beverly and Dennis this past weekend.  Previously I had done their engagement photos at Treaty Oak Park and I loved how those turned out.  When they asked me to do the photobooth, I was totally down! Beverly had pink/peach/coral colors for her wedding so I went...

Cowabunga!!! With the new trailer out for Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I thought I’d recap the last two GAAM Fashion x Cosplay Shoots I did with the Ninja Turtles theme. The first shoot we did was at Divebar. Our second shoot was at Akaya Sushi & Grill. First off, *goes into Yelp review mode* Akaya has become my FAVORITE sushi...
