    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…

    the work of His hands.

jd + joanna | orlando wedding photographer

[Guys, this is a long one. Lots of beautiful moments that made it very hard to keep this blog post at a reasonable length. I am sorry that I am not sorry! It’s that good. I promise you!]

Joanna is everyone’s favorite girl. Wayne and I kept overhearing the guests talking about how adored she is, how incredibly smart she is, how endearing she is, how her voice sounded like an angel (all true statements overheard at the wedding). We couldn’t agree more. She’s a blonde bombshell with a huge heart. She’s not only captivated the hearts of her guests (and photographer!), she is absolutely adored by her sweet man. You guys! JD is incredibly sweet the way he smiles and looks at his Bride. From the first look’s speechless and tearful reaction to smiling at her as she was overwhelmed with emotion at the toasts. Even when she danced with her father, he was on the side … just smitten. His gaze was fixed on her the entire day. The whole day was heartwarming.

A lot of people ask me what my ideal client looks like. For me, I found the characteristics to my ideal clientele long before I was a wedding photographer. I’m blessed to have the very best friends in the world, so the idea of my ideal client has been profoundly shaped by my relationships with my friends. JD and Joanna, thanks for blessing us with your friendship.

[future Brides from Orlando: If you haven’t booked your florist already, let me do you the greatest favor and tell you to check out Velvet and Twine. We’ve worked with them before this wedding and GOOOOOOODNESSSSSSS…. they will blow anything you request out of the water. The following reception details and bouquets will give you heart eyes emojis. For real, though. Just wait…]





kelsey + bailey | st. petersburg wedding photographer

Bahhh! This wedding is too beautiful! These two are babes, just babes! Wayne and I were spoiled with having such a wonderful couple to work with. AND! The wedding was in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, the hub of  so many beautiful portrait spots!! I had so many conversations with Bailey about her photography and I always felt grateful, knowing that she trusted our vision and was giving us freedom to tell the story. There’s so much peace in that, on both sides!

My favorite moment has to be the walk between the father of the Bride and his daughter. I love the moments that slow down. So much of the day feels like someone is holding the fast-forward button. But this moment allowed for Bailey and her dad to soak this in. Plus, I’m a sucker for dads with their daughters. With the city and the gorgeous park landscape as their backdrop, these two had a slow and sweet stroll through the park.

Thank you, Bailey+Kelsey, for the honor of letting us see a glimpse of your relationship and share in witnessing the start of your marriage. Such a big deal!
