This was my most memorable wedding I’ve ever photographed. I’ve photographed destination weddings before, but none like this. It almost seemed like a scam when I received Ariane’s email about photographing her destination wedding on the island of CocoCay in the Bahamas, but I quickly realized that it wasn’t. She and Aaron had planned a cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas for their guests and on the CocoCay day, they would marry on the island. What an incredible idea.  Not only was this a wonderful trip for them, but also for their guests. Clearly, this would be a memorable wedding for me because I’d never been on a cruise, but I got to spend time with their families and friends, getting to know them, learning how they knew each other, hearing stories about growing up together, etc. My husband also got to come on the trip and carry my bags and assist, so it was pretty amazing sharing this experience with him too. Aaron and Ariane worked incredibly hard to make this dream a reality and I’m so impressed with not only how organized they were, but the amazing people they are and the incredible experience they planned for everyone.

Aaron and Ariane – I can’t even begin to express what an honor it was to be your photographer. Thank you SOOO much for trusting me to photograph such an incredible day in your lives. You both are beautiful, amazing people with such a beauty in your relationship with each other that most have a hard time finding. I’m so blessed to have gotten to know you both and your families and friends. It truly was an honor and I’m so grateful! Congratulations on not only your wedding, but your marriage. XOXO PS: Aaron, you still look like JT!

My last wedding for 2014 was Jim and Kristi’s. It was a beautiful, smaller wedding with very close family. These two were incredibly fun to photograph and had a beautiful wedding day. Here are my favorites.

Last fall, I photographed Charles and Kayla’s wedding at The Country Knot. It was a beautiful day, surrounded by their family and friends. Here are my favorites from their wedding. Happy Wednesday! Flowers by Ruby Reds Floral.

Last fall, I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing Kate and Marshall’s wedding at St. Mark’s Episcopal and reception at Timuquana Country Club. They had both gone away to college, she at an all girls college, but had moved back to Jacksonville a couple of months before their wedding. Their wedding was beautiful, full of love, and surrounded by family and friends. Enjoy!

I’m catching up on work from last year and have so much to post to catch up on. Rob and Katie are getting married in May this year and theirs will be one of my last. It’s kind of bittersweet. I like that I’m moving into portraiture and combining all sorts of girly things into a topic that’s very problematic for many women, but I’m really going to miss working with sweet couples and watching them start the beginning of the rest of their lives together. Rob and Katie are no exception. Rob and Katie were guests at Ali and Marielle’s wedding that I shot in October 2013 and when asked who they should hire to be their photographer, Marielle sent them my info and the rest is history.

We met in Riverside for their session and it was such a beautiful day. The airshow was happening in the distance but we got to see the Blue Angels fly briefly. The chemistry between these two was too cute on so many levels. You can tell they’re totally comfortable just being “them” with each other. That’s the kind of person you spend the rest of your life with… because when life gets messy, you know you can be yourself.

Here are some of my favs from their session. Enjoy!
