    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.

I am always humbled by every Bride’s request to have us document their day. Even more honored when they are already friends of ours.

Drew was in Wayne’s fraternity in college and is a very good friend of mine. Some of our adventures include road tripping with our group to Nasvhille at 3am or flying to LA and San Francisco without any plan. This was Drew. Adventure, always. His spirit is so full of joy. But, the intense kind of joy that you leaves you with the greatest smile and ready to hunt for the next adventure. I knew Julie from some undergrad classes we shared. When the two of them got together, my mind was BLOWN! How did I not think of that pairing first?! She is his anchor, full of grace and immense elegance. Julie has such a pure heart which extends so much love.

It feels almost magical when you see the Lord’s hands in His love stories. The way he puts it all together. Man. Witnessing two people and their love for one another unfold and surrender to God’s plan …. I’m overwhelmingly humbled. Drew shared with me that his favorite moment had to be the ceremony when his bride was united with him in holy sacrament. She was his and he was hers. A beautiful surrender.

Drew+Julie. Forever grateful for your friendship. Thank you for the pleasure in the gift of telling your love story. I love you guys.

favorite moments . 2014

Happy New Year! 2015! We are one week into the new year and I couldn’t be more excited for the things to come. We had such a sweet holiday season full of family, rest and lots of comfort foods. It was so wonderful to get away to make memories of our own and take some time to reflect on the Lord’s blessings in the year 2014. Even the hard moments were redeemed by the moments of beautiful grace. The biggest lesson I learned last year was how precious our time here on earth is and to really be intentional about personal time. Last year made us really appreciate the time we spend and how we spend it.

I love doing this “favorite moments” post, because it helps me to stop and remember. 2014 was so, so good. We have officially bought all of our equipment (PRAISE JESUS, no more renting). It brought us a 6-page feature in a magazine and our first online feature (you can see it here: Floridian Weddings). The year took us on an adventure to shoot a wedding on a cruise and a wedding in Austin, Texas. It brought us many coffee dates with awesome couples and more and more fantastic stories to tell. I am deeply grateful for such incredible, incredible clients that shower us with their kind friendship and choose us to follow them around with our cameras. Building on these relationships and being a witness to these rich stories really fills me. Each and every wedding story has had such a strong pull at my heart strings. I have cried, celebrated, laughed and danced with each one of you. I am forever honored to witness and be a part of it all. I love you all.

On another note, I’d like to give a shout-out to my hottie second shooter and favorite human, Wayne. Man, I am so blessed to go through life with this guy. Wayne is so passionate about loving me well. We drove many, many miles last year for all of these weddings and he sits there patiently as I play through every single Taylor swift song on the radio (and now CD). His support and encouragement really points me to the real reason I do this. Wayne, your talent and service to our couples (and me) astounds me. I’m the luckiest girl. I fall more in love with you with each wedding that we share. Thank you for always running to get me water, stealing kisses when no one is watching, hanging out with the Groomsmen, fixing bowties/ties/boutonnieres/veils/dresses, capturing a different take on the story and just for being you.

Below are just some of our favorite moments of 2014. Sorry I am not sorry about the length! We had a lot of wonderful moments and we are just so thankful! Here’s to the best year yet… through Him, with Him and for Him.
