I have yet to share with you all their beautiful engagement session that we shot on a vintage sailboat in Key Biscayne, but as I edited their wedding day photos I fell in love with their portrait time that I felt compelled to post. Great engagement sessions prepare the wedding day portrait time so that every minute we get together counts as if it was double because we are just in the rhythm of what we have already accomplished together. Jenny and Luis were so clearly comfortable with one another and in front of the camera that what I truly focused on was showcasing their personalities as they explored this beautiful area we were in. Somehow we all forgot about the rain and the dirt below and all you wanted to see was Jenny in that beautiful lace gown of hers floating through all the green.
This is my updated motherhood story. The days of walking around with a little one inside that I still can’t believe will soon be mine. How did I ever get so fortunate to mother three little boys? Three little boys, just what I always said I wanted…
It has been almost six months since my last journal entry and I can honestly share with you now that it feels like its been too long. When it had just been a couple of months and I started getting the “are you okays?” “miss you online!” and “when are you going to post our session?” messages I kept thinking… guys it’s just been a little while, no need to assume the worst!
I couldn’t just post my 2017 recap post within the year like everyone else… I was still shooting an engagement session on New Years eve and definitely didn’t want that one to miss out on being part of the group. This past year was all about growth for us. With 2016 changing the tone of our bookings with all of the new couple sessions and weddings planned, I knew eventually the scales would tip and I’d be shooting couples much more than families. Here’s a tiny bit of spec for you about our 2017: We had 18 weddings, one in particular remains a favorite above the rest because it was as if I was seeing my own dream wedding outdoors.
Hi there friends! I am so excited about starting to shoot all of my 2018 brides’ engagement sessions. Its a sneak peek of what awaits next year as their special wedding days arrive. This next preview is of one of my new favorite places to shoot, Robbins Lodge Park. Keylen and Gio were the sweetest to work with as we explored the park together. Dressed to impress, I photographed them during the loveliest of afternoons. When they mentioned they had brought a colored smoke bomb along I was so thrilled since I had never used one before. I’m so happy about all of these. Keylen was killing it in her red dress! I hope you all love them as much as I do!
I remember that phone call we had when she said she was changing her wedding date so that I could be the one to document it… little did I know when I shot her engagements that she would also become my bride. It’s sometimes a very sad thing to reach out to one of your favorite vendors only to hear a “Sorry, we’re already booked.” It happens a lot when the wedding day you pre-select happens to fall during wedding season. But my lovely bride here was going to make this happen… she moved over the date and I was so thrilled that we would get to work together again. Iralys is one of the girls in this circle of friends that I have shot weddings for.
