always been

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.

always been a

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.

Sabrina + Kevin – Daytona Beach Engagement Photography

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Back in August of last year, Sabrina and Kevin reached out to us about their January 2015 wedding, which seemed so far away at the time. But by the time we finally got to meet these two in person late last month, we had already reached the halfway point of their engagement! I love the way we got to celebrate that milestone with them: By shooting their engagement session in New Smyrna Beach.

I know, I know, I say it all the time, but it’s really true with Sabrina and Kevin — they were so happy and easy together that it made our jobs a breeze! See for yourself. They’re perfect together!Daytona Beach wedding photojournalismSabrina, I have to say that you looked not only gorgeous, but incredibly elegant — you are going to make an amazing bride!Daytona Beach engagement and wedding photographyDaytona Beach portrait and wedding photographerDaytona Beach wedding and engagement photographerDaytona Beach wedding and portrait photographerSomething that Sabrina said she loves is ornate metalwork, so it was only fitting that her custom engagement ring should feature a romantic flower design.
