Paynes Prairie Preserve

Continuing my journey across the state of Florida, today found me visiting with the "Congo Mafia" at Penney Farms.  It was great to lunch with the Lindlands and Abells.  Then it was on to Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, just outside Gainesville.  Here are a few fav's from today's shooting...

Florida Walk-about

This week I'll be "on walk-about", as the Aussie's say, traveling through Florida.  I have a Destination Wedding over on the Gulf Coast this coming weekend.  So I decided to leave early, take my time getting there, and enjoy the beautiful "refreshment" that spring can bring.

My first stop found me in one of my favorite cities, the oldest in the US, the picturesque St. Augustine.  Here's a few shots from the acclaimed St. Augustine Alligator Farm where birds garner almost as much attention as the gators!

Lisa & Clay Rock Bowen's Island

Lizzie & Charlotte are the unwitting masterminds behind “THE PERFECT COUPLE” that is Lisa & Clay!  J  They are the ones that invited Lisa to St. Michael's when she moved here and introduced them.  When he proposed, Clay planned this huge, fun, elaborate deal.  He got permission to get the key to the bell-tower at the church, took Lisa to the top right at sunset, and proposed up there overlooking all of Charleston!  She was very surprised.  They went out to dinner afterwards and Lisa says he acted like a nut, telling everyone he passed "SHE SAID YES!!!". Believe it or not, Clay actually picked out her ring on his own.  I love that!  And I LOVE the ring too.  It’s so classy yet unique…just like Lisa.  J  These two are absolutely perfect for each other and I am so honored that they have asked me to be a part of this special time in their lives.

Brittainy & Nate Explore Charleston's Hidden Alleys

Last August I received this wonderful email from a beautiful young lady named Brittainy:


“I am very interested in using you as a photographer.  I know two people that have referred you to me.  I was at the Whitney and Ryan Kalinsky wedding on Seabrook and I know Amy and Seth Zeigler.  They both say you are great and I was very impressed with you at Whitney's wedding, working all alone yet you were there for every shot!  I did photography in high school and have done some friends weddings myself so photography is a big deal for me on my wedding day!!!”


There is NOTHING that gets an artist more energized than hearing something like this.  Needless to say, I was truly excited when they hired me and was REALLY looking forward to Brittainy & Nate’s Engagement Shoot last week.  I loved the location they picked for their shoot…loved getting to know them, laugh with them, listen to them…and loved how their images came out.  These two have something very special…a connection with each other that is hard to find these days!  I can’t WAIT to be there for them on their wedding day…

Kathryn & Mack at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club

Kathryn & Mack flew all the way from Texas to tie the knot at the gorgeous Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach.  Mack is originally from here, so it was a joyful homecoming for him!  I had the pleasure of working with the always AMAZING Elizabeth of Grand Occasions, as well as my favorite florist in the world, Mark Gladden of M Gladden Designs.  It was the most beautiful day you could imagine.  I had gorgeous light to work with.  And Mack & Kathryn were so IN LOVE and IN THE MOMENT!!!  It was such an honor capturing all the excitement of their day for them.  Go to to check out their fun Music Video.  Then visit to check out the rest of their photos!

Karina's Getting Married!

Karina & her “entourage” met me over at Boone Hall Plantation earlier this week.  I’m not actually photographing her wedding, but was SO HONORED when she asked if I would do her Bridal Shoot.  Karina is a beautiful, spirit-filled young lady…so full of life and love!  It was a joy just being with her and sharing this special time in her life with her.  I love how elegant she looks, even when she’s leaning on her fiance’s guitar!!!  J

Jennifer & Robert

Jennifer & Robert were a BLAST to work with!  J  They really opened up to me.  And we had a great time together on our “walk-about” downtown.  We came away with some fantastic images that I think capture their personalities to a “T”!
