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.
Good morning friends! The next wedding was the perfect combination of natural meets DIY with a whimsical flare. It’s no secret that Robbins Lodge in Davie, FL is one of the most charming venues for small intimate weddings and we were thrilled for the opportunity to photograph an event there. Right from the moment I met Joanna and Charlie I knew they would be such an easy and lovely couple to work with. From their best friend story to the little details of how she declared her feelings only to then have an elevator door separate them, to how he proposed and surprised her and ultimately to how she described she wanted her day to be. She was definitely the kind of bride that was meant for me.
There are just some sessions that you can’t wait to get home to see. The couple, the lighting, the location and everything else involved in the photo shoot was working so perfectly well that the excitement is real. So real friends, that I was being made fun of at my silly OMG moments while shooting the pictures. I don’t know what happened on this in particular but I loved it more than I have loved shooting anything else lately. This session has inspired me to chase light differently and I can’t wait to share it with you all. Naiby and Nick are expecting their first bundle of joy very soon and on a beautiful morning this past month we got together to document this special time in their lives.
