• 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.

Michelle and Jarrett | Dorothy Oven Park Engagement Session

Michelle and Jarrett are getting married at the The Steinhatchee Landing‘s wedding chapel and I am so stoked! I attended a wedding there years ago and fell in love with its quaintness. While up in the area on a scalloping vacation (yes this is a thing!) Michelle and Jarrett came to Tallahassee to meet for their engagement session. I am simply loving these and can’t wait until their wedding!!


Kirsten and Ryan | Southwood Engagement Session

I loved spending the evening with Kirsten and Ryan for their engagement session. Everything was so easy – their love and affection showed in everything they did and it was fun to capture their personalities. I can’t wait until their August wedding at Bradley’s Retreat!

Lauren and J.J. | Grady Cultural Center Wedding

I love these two!!! Just check them out throwing leaves at each other during their engagement session!

Lauren and J.J.’s wedding revolved around fate…J.J.’s baseball number was always 25, J.J. proposed on Lauren’s 25th birthday ON December 25th, and there are 25 diamonds in Lauren’s ring. So of course they HAD to get married on the 25th!!! Every part of their day had special meaning. They got married in Lauren’s childhood church where her grandfather was a preacher. The reception was at the Grady Cultural Center, which Lauren’s mom helped renovate into the beautiful space it is now. The groomsmen wore boutonnières with NY Yankees pins to showcase J.J.’s love of baseball. And the bridesmaids carried arrows covered in broaches Lauren collected from flea markets. The arrow represented their paths being lead in the same direction and was a major theme of the day.

Lauren and J.J.’s entire day was smokin’ hot (and not just because of the triple digit heat!). Thank you both for allowing me to celebrate with you!
