• Welcome

    I'm so excited you made it to my blog! This is where we can truly get to know each other better. I'm a writer by nature and sometimes I think the best way to get to know someone is through their words. Words can connect, move, and inspire people. They are very similar to photographs in that way. So wander around and get to know me better! I hope I can inspire you - just as each one of my clients has inspired me.

Beth + Kevin {St. Augustine Wedding Photographer}

I waited in constant anticipation for six months for Beth and Kevin’s wedding. I knew it was going to special; if for no other reason than the fact that these two are made for each other. Completely made for each other. After all, it takes very special people to run marathons. Not everyone can do it. And out of all of the millions of people in this world, Beth and Kevin – both avid runners – found each other. It was fate. So I found it no surprise when Beth told me that Kevin proposed to her at the end of a race. The story in a nutshell? They both ran the Palace Saloon 5K in Tallahassee, but Beth – always being harder on herself than she needs to be – was annoyed at the end because she didn’t have a good race {on a side note, in my mind if you FINISH it’s a good race. ūüôā But I digress} As Beth was beating herself up over the race, Kevin got down on one knee and pulled out a ring. In the words of Beth: “It was perfect.”

And I’d say perfect is the best word to use to sum up Beth and Kevin’s wedding. Sure there were some setbacks – like the downpour during the entire time allotted for photos. But every storm has a silver lining. And that silver lining allowed us to get together the next morning and walk the streets of beautiful St. Augustine – without the rush of the wedding day. It was perfect.

Lucky duck!).¬†Tara Ferreira¬†did a beautiful job on Beth’s hair and makeup.St. AugustineSt. AugustineI was in love with Beth’s¬†Justina McCaffrey¬†gown!

Read all about why here. Just after the photos above were taken, the skies opened up and it started to downpour. No worries. With a few umbrellas and some strategic planning we were still able to pull off the first look, as well as some portraits of the couple, without getting anyone TOO wet . . . . well, at least we tried!¬†St. Francis Inn Bed and BreakfastThe ceremony was held at the beautiful, historic¬†Cathedral Basilica¬†at 7:00 p.m.St. AugustineSt. AugustineSt. AugustineSt. AugustineSt. AugustineAfter the ceremony, as the couple took a horse drawn carriage around St. Augustine, Christie and I hurried over to The River House to capture some reception details before the couple’s grand entrance.¬†After the first dances and some very touching toasts, Andy with¬†High Fidelity DJ Service¬†got the party started with C’mon ‘N Ride It (The Train) and the dancing didn’t stop until the end of the evening! {boy did that song bring back some high school memories!}
