I've
always been
storyteller.

But I never set out to be a photographer. I was (and still am!) going to be a writer. And then as I worked toward that writing goal, someone put a camera in my hand and asked me to try telling stories with something besides words. So with an English nerd's love for character and tone, a romantic's love for poignant beauty, and a realist's love for imperfection, I dove in.

I've
always been a
story-teller.

That was back in 2010.

Since that time, photography has changed much of my life. It's brought me some of my dearest friends. It's reshaped the way my husband Danny and I view serving others. It has even literally taken me around the world. One thing that hasn't changed: my soul-stirring desire to tell stories that feel so real you're sure you knew them before you heard them. Or saw them. It's my privilege to tell those stories for my clients, and for the generations of their families still to come.

Erena + Jesse – A Washington Oaks State Park Engagement

Monday, March 31st, 2014

A year ago, Jesse was getting ready to ask Erena to marry him, and the proposal happened over the summer, against the backdrop of snow capped mountains, when he visited her in Bolivia. A few months from now, they’ll tie the knot against the backdrop of Virginia’s lush Blue Ridge Mountains, and we truly can’t wait to be a part of what we know is going to be an incredible weekend.

Partly because we love these two and love their families. Partly because it’s a joy to see how much these two love each other. And partly because their engagement session last week was so beautiful, and these two were so easy to work with, that we know their wedding day will be amazing!Washington Oaks State Park engagement photographyWashington Oaks State Park engagementWe had started planning their engagement last fall — but it was well worth waiting until March, when the entire park was in bloom!Daytona Beach wedding photographersWashington Oaks State Park engagement photographerDaytona Beach wedding and engagement photographerDaytona Beach wedding photographerDaytona Beach wedding photographyDoesn’t it look like something straight out of a fairy tale?Daytona Beach wedding and engagement photographyOrlando wedding and engagement photographersCentral Florida wedding and engagement photographerDaytona Beach engagement and wedding photographyOne of my favorites from the afternoon!Orlando wedding and engagement photographyCentral Florida wedding and engagement photographersCentral Florida wedding and engagement photographyWashington Oaks engagement photographerWashington Oaks engagement and wedding photographyWashington Oaks Gardens engagement photographyPalm Coast wedding and engagement photographersDaytona Beach engagement photographyWashington Oaks engagement photographyDaytona Beach wedding and engagement photographersOrlando wedding and engagement photographerFlagler Beach wedding and engagement photographyAahhhh, you both looked absolutely amazing!

With all the wind and the chilly evening fast approaching, the beach was almost deserted, and we had the rocky coastline all to ourselves.Washington Oaks State Park engagement photographersPalm Coast engagement photographyPalm Coast wedding and engagement photographyPalm Coast engagement photographerFlorida beach engagementAnother favorite!Florida wedding and engagement photojournalistCentral Florida engagement photographyPalm Coast wedding and engagement photographerFlorida wedding and engagement photojournalismErena and Jesse, we had so much fun with you both, and we can’t wait for June to get here!
