• 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.

Jenna and Alexi | Maclay Gardens Engagement Session

I met up with Jenna and Alexi at Maclay Gardens for their engagement session. Jenna and Alexi are so much fun to hang out with! They kept me laughing through the entire engagement session, and I especially loved hanging out with sweet Mia! (she even shared her goldfish with me!!)

I can’t wait to see these two get married in Key West later this year!!

Jennifer and Stephen | Pensacola Wedding Photographer

It’s very rare that I don’t meet my couples until the day of the wedding, but that was the case with Jennifer and Stephen. We communicated via email and telephone and through her wonderful planner Megan with Megan K Events. But even without meeting, I still felt like I knew Jennifer. That’s why I love sending out questionnaires – it really helps me get to know and understand my couples! When I showed up at the Pensacola Grand Hotel where the girls were getting ready, Jennifer greeted me like we were old friends. Love!! Everyone was relaxed and having a great time, and I had a blast being in Jennifer and Stephen’s company.

They were married at Fountain Park in downtown Pensacola, and after their first kiss they were greeted with clapping and shouts of “congratulations!” from watchers-by. The reception was at the Palafox House, which I love because of it’s exposed brick and charm.

Congratulations Jennifer and Stephen!! PensacolaWeddingPhotographer_PensacolaGrandHotel_WeddingRingsPensacolaWeddingPhotographer_WeddingInvitations_FioreFlowersPensacolaGrandHotel_GuestWelcomeBags_PensacolaWeddingPhotographer_NorthFloridaWeddingPhotographer_BirdcageVeilGetting Ready at the Pensacola Grand HotelBride Getting Ready at the Pensacola Grand HotelPensacolaGrandHotel_WeddingBirdcageVeil_GettingReady_PensacolaWeddingLaceWeddingDress_GettingReadyAtThePensacolaGrandHotel_WeddingPensacolaWeddingPhotographer_BirdcageVeil_NorthFloridaWeddingPhotographerPensacolaGrandHotel_WeddingPhotographer_BirdcageVeil_Pensacola_Tallahassee_NorthFloridaGroom at the Pensacola Grand HotelPensacolaGrandHotel_FirstLook_ExchangingGifts_BirdcageVeil_PensacolaWeddingPhotographerPensacolaGrandHotel_PensacolaWeddingPhotographer_FioreFlowers_BirdcageVeilFioreFlowers_GreenBridesmaidDresses_Sunflowers_PensacolaWeddingPhotographerMeganKEvents_FioreFlowers_SunflowerWeddingBouquet_WeddingPhotographerWeddingPhotographer_Pensacola_BlackChiavariChairs_DowntownPensacolaWeddingFountainParkWedding_PensacolaWeddingPhotographer_NorthFloridaWeddingPhotographerWedding at Fountain Park in Pensacola, FloridaWedding at Fountain Park in Pensacola, FloridaFountainParkWedding_OldChristChurch_PensacolaWedding_Photographer_blackchiavarichairsFountainParkWedding_Pensacola_BirdcageVeilFirst Kiss at Fountain Park in Pensacola, FloridaOldChristChurch_Pensacola_FamilyPortraitsOldChristChurch_Pensacola_FamilyPortraits_PensacolaWeddingPhotographerGroomsmen in gold ties and blue suits in downtown PensacolaPensacolaGrandHotel_ReservoirDogs_OldChristChurch_Pensacola_Wedding_Photographer_SunflowerbouquetsDowntownPensacolaWedding_sunflowerbouquets_birdcageveil_weddingphotographer_pensacola_tallahassee_northfloridaPensacolaWeddingPhotographer_FioreFlowersDowntownPensacolaWeddingPhotos_BirdcageVeilOldChristChurch_PensacolaWeddingPhotographer_FioreFlowersWeddingPhotographer_Pensacola_Tallahasse_NorthFlorida_DestinDowntownPensacolaWeddingPhotos_WeddingPhotographer_Pensacola_Tallahassee_NorthFlorida_Destin_sunflowerbouquet

Martha Fredriksen - Love was a beautiful wedding!!!!

Dear Eric | Tallahassee Photographer

This post is long overdue. In fact, it’s a year overdue. But better late than never I always say. Back when I was in law school I had the amazing opportunity to intern at the Attorney General’s office in the Economic Crimes division. I met some really wonderful people there. Colleagues who then became friends and who are still my friends, over 10 years later. One of those wonderful colleagues was Eric Tilton. He was the guy in the office with the crude sense of humor that everyone loved. Through Eric I met his wife Marta. Through Marta I got my job at the Senate. And that led to so much more for me in my life. I really owe so much to Eric and Marta! Eric battled liver disease for several years until he finally got his angel wings. My good friend Sandi with Bulldog Strategy Group coordinated a beautiful party at the Southwood Golf Club to celebrate Eric’s life. It was such a privilege to have been a part of Eric’s life.

Eric was a fan of games, so we had foosball, his own video game set up, and backgammon set up for guests to play:
