    Psalm 19:1 // The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

    My name is Ingrid and this is my husband, Wayne. We both grew up in South Florida and are both Gators. I studied architecture and he studied exercise science. On 11.11.2011, my wish came true and I got to marry my best friend.

    As creators of images and lovers of marriage, we get excited about documenting the stories of awesome people in love. We are a husband and wife photography team based out of Gainesville, Florida but love to travel to be storytellers. Taking a journalistic approach to photography, we focus on capturing raw moments to tell stories as the day naturally unfolds. We aim to capture love stories as well as build genuine relationships with our incredible couples. Our purpose is to take your day or moment and reflect the beauty of the story...

    The work of His hands.

Yerim & Kong | Orlando Engagement Photographer

Kong planned a 4-day trip to New York to propose to Yerim. He got a few of their friends together and told Yerim that he wanted a reunion vacation with their college friends. Yerim didn’t suspect a thing, even though their 3rd anniversary was going to fall during this “vacation.” Kong told us “whoever invented modern-day wedding proposals probably never did one themselves.” He said that it was quite possibly the most stressful weekend of his life.

He said it was incredibly hard to focus during the trip. He had to pretend to have fun while he was preparing to propose. As they walked around exploring NYC, Kong practiced pulling out the ring out of inner jacket pocket (He said that its harder than it seems), rehearsing his lines over and making sure everyone knew exactly when he would be proposing.

Well, the day to propose finally came. Kong said that everything felt like a huge blur. He said he remembered all their friends taking too long get to the place he was planning to propose. That externally, he put on a calm demeanor and a smile. But internally, he was freaking out. Eventually, they got to where we needed to be and as an added bonus, the weather was perfect. All the pressure of proposing and he forgot everything he rehearsed saying! (aww)  He pulled out the ring, got on one knee (very smoothly because of all that practicing), and he asked Yerim to be his forever. Yerim was so shocked, she didn’t say yes for a long time. (which caused Kong to sweat a little bit.) She eventually said yes!

Kong said that all the planning, blood, sweat, and tears that lead up that moment, it was well worth it for him to see how happy she was. “She deserves the very best! But I will honestly confess, I’m glad I will never have to propose to anyone ever again!”

Well done Kong!

Leslie + Jason | At Home Session

At home session

I had a blast shooting this at home session with Leslie and Jason. We met up at their adorable home for my first ever in-home session. In-home shoots capture so much of your story, the home you’ve built together, the life you’re living and the beautiful mundane moments of your everyday life. This session was so different from those outdoor adventurous shoots that are very popular right now. Don’t get me wrong… if you love the outdoors and mountains are your thing, then go somewhere scenic for your photos and pleeeeeease take me with you. Sessions like this capture your love story, the magic between the two of you, and your family legacy within the walls of your home.

 Jefferson Bethke, is an author and speaker and he has a beautiful way to describe the home, so I’ll leave you with this today…“You spend more time in your home than anywhere else. Home is the subtle but most powerful teacher of your life. It’s where you learn to walk, talk, eat, cry, laugh, and love. Home is a powerful force on our lives whether we realize it or not. And for Alyssa and me, that means that home is sacred. Home is prayed over. Home is thought through intentionally. And most of all, home is fun and hopefully full of joy and grace. To us, the schools, and the church, and the other institutions exist to serve the home. Not the other way around. So we are always thinking about how to create a more loving, nurturing, joyful, caring, thoughtful, and intentional home. Because home means belonging, and nowhere do we more belong than in the embrace and love of Jesus, and home is our opportunity to show that to our kids by showing them what He’s done for us.”
