Michelle + Miles | University of South Florida Engagement Shoot
Michelle and Miles met each other while both attending USF so naturally it was the perfect place for an engagement shoot. One of our favorite memories was when we were asking them about their relationship and they said that they've known for a long time that the other was "the one," but they were not in a rush to tie the knot and supported each other through graduate degrees before deciding to go for it. We loved this and think it remonstrates the type of love they have - deep, peaceful, supportive and secure. You couldn't meet two more friendly or kind people and we are just beyond honored that we get to document their love.

Kendall + Danny | University of Tampa & Curtis Hixon Park Engagement Shoot
All you have to do is spend 2 minutes with Kendall and Danny and you know that they have a very special relationship. You can see it when they look at each other; you can tell they're best friends and they just get one another. They also have a silly side, making lots of funny faces and getting each other to laugh. Of course, we had a blast on this engagement shoot and just fell in love with these two immediately. Here are some of our favorites from their University of Tampa/Downtown Tampa engagement shoot. Enjoy!

Holly and Kevin's St. Pete Beach wedding was amazing! There were tears, laughter and a deep love that was so beautiful.

Holly and Kevin, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your love story. We can't wait to see where your journey together takes you from here.

Stefania + Biagio | Safety Harbor Spa Wedding
We had the pleasure of photographing Stefania and Biagio's wedding at the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa in October and it was a true celebration of love and family (and delicious Italian food!). Guest flew in from far and wide to celebrate these two becoming one. Although we had not met the couple before the big day, they immediately welcomed us with open arms, as did the rest of their family. We feel so incredibly honored to have been part of this special celebration and are excited to share some of our favorite photos with you. Enjoy!

Jessica & Jeremy | Anna Maria Island Wedding
Jessica and Jeremy traveled down to Florida from Michigan for a destination wedding at The Sandbar on Anna Maria Island. Their wedding was on the same day that Hurricane Matthew was hitting the east coast of Florida. Fortunately, the weather was gorgeous, even if it was windy. They took the windy weather in stride and everyone had an amazing time. We couldn't have been happier to be with them to capture their beautiful and special day.
Check out some of our favorites from the day:

Fiorella + Marcus | Powel Crosley Estate Wedding | Sarasota, Florida
Fiorella and Marcus's wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, FL was beautiful and so much fun! Both of them just wanted to have a great time and a great time was had! When I shot their engagement shoot in Ybor City, I could tell these two were passionately in love with each other. That was true at their wedding too, but even more so. Their love for each other overflowed the whole day, and they couldn't wait to see each other at their first look. Once they caught a glimpse of each other, the emotions overflowed and they couldn't let go. It was such a joy to be a part of their day and capture their gorgeous wedding.
Here are some o ...

We moved to Florida…in June!
I've been meaning to write this post for a while now, but we've been pretty busy shooting weddings and engagements, so here it is! Most of you know that in June we relocated from Connecticut back to our home in Florida. We couldn't be happier to be back in the land of palm trees, incredible sunsets, warm (ok freakishly hot) weather, alligators, and grandparents. Aiden is so excited to be back around the grandparents and we've been having a ton of fun swimming and adventuring around town. We live in a little house on a lake and Ris and I love sitting on the back porch drinking a glass of wine in the evenings and dreaming about what the future ...

Mariah + Ben | Curtis Hixon Park Engagement
When I met Mariah and Ben for the first time at Curtis Hixon Park for our engagement session, I knew we were going to have a great time. They were laid back, hilarious, and in love (the holy trinity of great photos!). They are both music teachers who love teaching and their students. The facts that they are both from Michigan (where I've spent quite a bit of time) and that Ben is a big hockey fan gave us tons to talk about. I'll forgive Ben for being a Detroit Red Wings fan...

Michele + Eli | Safety Harbor Engagement
Michele and Eli are two genuinely fun people and it was awesome taking their photos in Downtown Safety Harbor. We began their shoot at the Safety Harbor Resort & Spa and worked our way through downtown (one of our favorite places in the area). They laughed and joked the whole time and their love was obvious from the way they looked at each other. We can't wait for their wedding in January! Check out some of our favorites from the shoot:
