    Thank you for visiting our space here online! As creators of images and lovers of marriage, we get excited about documenting the stories of awesome people in love. We are digital and film photographers based out of Gainesville, Florida but love to travel to be storytellers. Taking a candid approach to photography, we focus on photographing raw, organic 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. So, take a look around and feel free to reach out! We would love to share a cup of coffee with you. Our hope is that you’d allow us to photograph your day or moment and reflect the beauty of the story…

Rhen & Elmer’s Wedding | Ocala Wedding Photographer

 Rhen + Elmer’s love story is a story of two people widowed by their first loves and then through the grace of God found each other.

Their wedding day rolled around and unfortunately, the clouds and rain rolled in just as quickly. That didn’t stop their children and family from hustling to prepare the perfect day for these two lovers. Fun fact: together they have 9 children and 11 grandchildren. So much family to love! It was very important to Rhen & Elmer that each child and grandchild have a part to play in their special day. All of the children helped set up and coordinate their wedding logistics. They were bringing in food, setting tables, ironing clothes, drying the chairs that had gotten rained on, and so much more. Elmer’s son stood up next to him as his best man. Rhen’s daughters were all present as she got ready for the day. One of her daughters even helped her with her makeup. It was incredibly sweet.

These two had previously decided to have their first look under the big oak trees on the property. They did not let the weather stop them from meeting each other under the oak tree. You will see from the photos how joyfully and excitedly Rhen approached him. It was such a romantic scene, the two of them standing underneath the branches of this oak tree as the rain fell. How poetic to meet under that oak tree as they are a symbol of strength and endurance, something both of them represent after losing their dearest loves.

How blessed they are to have had not one but two great loves on this earth.


Rosella & Sean | Vizcaya Wedding Photographer

Rosella & Sean were the winners of our engagement session giveaway in 2019.  Since our 2020 giveaway is currently happening, we thought that it was v appropriate to share this session with you. These two live in so they flew down to Florida for this Vizcaya Museum and Gardens engagement session. Being that Vizcaya is a modern interpretation of an 18th-century Italian villa, it was the perfect backdrop for their engagement session since Rossella is Italian! These two are getting married in Italy this summer! I couldn’t think of a better location to capture their love.

At the beginning of our session, they both mentioned how “awkward” they are in front of the camera…as you look through these images you will see that this couldn’t be FURTHER from the truth. My job was incredibly easy as Sean kept her giggling throughout the entire session.  We walked around to all the different shooting locations (if you’ve been to Vizcaya then you know there are TOO MANY yummy places to shoot at). There was a moment where I almost lost it. I walked around a corner and right in the middle of the walkway was a large, vibrant lizard. (this is a normal sight to see at Vizcaya) Anyone who knows me knows that I am incredibly afraid of lizards. I had to practice so much self-control as I attempted not to let my fear get the best of me!

These two met in fifth grade! Rossella told us “He was the cute little red-head that was by far the most athletic in our 5th grade-class and he would always aim for me during dodgeball. Fast forward 8 years – we went to separate high schools but soon became close friends in college after finding out my long lost St. Joan of Arc classmate was roommates with my boyfriend at the time. When things didn’t work out between my then-boyfriend and me, the spark between Sean and I grew and the rest is history.”

Isn’t that the sweetest!?!  Well, enough about their story, as these photos communicate the love and joy that is shared between these two.
