    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.

Brittany + Laz | Palm Beach Engagement Session

Brittany and Laz met each other while they were in high school!  They fell in love under those Friday Night Lights. You see, Laz was on the varsity football team and Brittany was a varsity cheerleader.  Fast forward ten years, they now have four kiddos and a love that is rooted deeply in their commitment to each other (and football).  Brittany told us that she is still very much in love with that tall, handsome football jock she fell for in high school. 

Brittany described their engagement as “utterly magical!” For the past few years, her family would make a trip to Disney to attend Mickey’s not so scary Halloween. This trip her parents and their seven grandkids dressed up as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Brittany had no idea that she was going to leave Disney with a ring on her finger.  Her family decided to attend the Monsters INC show (she thought because it was hot outside and everyone wanted to be in the air conditioning). Laz was picked to be a participant in the show…Brittany told us that she was so ecstatic because they had never been picked before for something like a live show. Next thing she knew, Laz was on one knee asking Brittany to marry him! (as part of the show!) 

We think it’s pretty safe to say that this trip was Brittany’s happiest time at the “happiest place on earth!” ;)

Annelys + Dan | San Francisco Wedding Photographer

“Florida girl meets and falls in love with California boy and his English bulldog.” – Annelys

These two cutie pies met online. Annelys told us that she was immediately drawn to his profile because he had a picture of Milo (his English bulldog) as his profile picture. She was really missing her dog back in Florida and she thought he was really cute (Milo’s human of course)! She told us that, unfortunately, Dan was late to their first date and she was super annoyed by that. Dan’s defense to him being late was, “I couldn’t believe that she was waiting to have dinner with me!” Super sweet! Annelys told us that she quickly forgave him.

Dan proposed while they were vacationing in Maui and celebrating Annelys’ 30th birthday. He booked a spectacular room overlooking the beach at a really fancy resort. The day of the proposal, he scheduled a mani/pedi for Annelys as a birthday treat, even though she was being stubborn by telling him that she didn’t want to get one. He insisted. She had no idea that her hands were getting pampered for a sparkly diamond she’d receive that same day! Later that evening, while they were getting ready for dinner, Dan called Annelys out to the balcony and said he wanted to talk to her. The sun was setting at this point and the sunsets in Hawaii are some of the best in the world. He got down on one knee and asked Annelys to be his wife. She immediately started crying. She eventually said yes to his question (at least she thinks she did)!

Their wedding took place in San Francisco, California, the place where they met and fell in love. The wedding decor was designed with modern elements of the things and details they love about their city. It was also important to they that they incorporated Jewish and Cuban traditions to their day, to represent their heritage. Their wedding cuisine was a special (and yummy) California-Cuban mix. They said their vows under a huppah, drank from the cup of life and broke glass together at the end of the ceremony – all traditional Jewish traditions.  My FAVORITE part of the day was when Dan said his vows to Annelys… in Spanish!! C’mon! High five to you! During their reception, they danced the hora, salsa and merengue. I love when couples are from two different cultures and they celebrate their unique heritage as they join their two families together. These two celebrated culture so well. I loved it!

Finally, a very special shout out to sweet Milo! Because of you, these two have a lifetime of love and happiness ahead of them!
