Marisa's mini shoot was awesome! Aside from living in Florida and having a billion bugs bite us. The shoot turned out great! I loved talking to Marisa and getting to know here! She is going to school to be a teacher! We need more great teachers within the school system! 

Again here is another tropical beach shoot! I honestly can't get enough of them, and come on how beautiful is Marisa people!

I hope you enjoy the images!

Nicolle + James Engagement shoot

 

Breaking News Alert: I have to tell the world how excited I am about these two getting Married!!!

Background: I have known Nichole for years. I met her at church when I was a little girl in youth group. She was a leader over me and I always looked up to her. As time went on, we became friends! The age gap between us started shrinking.

I went off to college but our friendship remained! While I was in college she met this guy named JAMES PAUL GOETKE. They feel in love and it was happily ever after the END!  

Or... something like that lol. As their love story developed I was in college, so I saw bits and pieces of it. I'm telling you all of this because I was in and out while their love story was developing but now I get the amazing chance to spend almost EVERY DAY WITH THEM! In their cute little soon to be Home<3 (It is such a warm cozy safe place to be!) 

I have learned so much from their relationship and can not wait to see what their Lord does in and through their marriage. As they choose to serve Him and honor Him, in everything they do. I feel like we look at marriage as a reward at times, instead of a ministry. These two remind me daily that Love IS A CHOICE, and that marriage is a MINISTRY! 

I love you both sooooo much, and am so thankful I get to stand by your side Nicolle on your big day! 

Cheers to their love story! I hope as you go through the images you can see their love for one another. 

Ps. I LOVE when clients can be so vonerable front of the camera. There is nothing like capturing those hidden moments.

Cara + Justin Bowen // St. Petersburg Meet Up!

 

Breaking News! 

I got the chance to shoot with this amazing couple last week! 

If I can give you some back story I have been following their creative journey for some time! I feel in love with Cara's wrist shots that she took for Pura Vida (that is how I found her.) I loved her tropical Instagram style and was so excited to see that she loved the Lord and had a heart for encouraging woman! 

Since then, I was on board! Following her Instagram, her love story and what creative action she was taking next! Justin and Cara did this workshop that my friends and I watched the free informational live video on! Seeing them tell their tips and tricks was so fun!

Social Media can be such a funny thing! You can feel like you know someone without even meeting them. In this case, I definitely felt that way with them.

After a couple of years following her, I would reach out through DM to ask her questions and pick her brain on marketing and social media! She was always so open to talking and helping me! Some time went by and Cara contacted me to tell me they would be in Florida if I wanted to meet up and photograph her and Justin! 

I could not pass up that offer! HECK YES, I WILL, and the rest was history. We met up in St. Pete and shot a bunch of outfit options. Best of all I loved talking about passions and dreams. It's so cool knowing that following someone online can turn into meeting up.... creating content together and well-becoming friends lol! 

I would for sure call them my friends haha! I mean they were amazing, everything that they are on their social meida! It's good to know that there are genuine people out there! 

I hope you love the images, It was so much fun just being able to shoot and be in the moment! 

Cheers to Love, new found friendship and being able to collaborate with awesome people! I am so thankful for the people the Lord is bringing into my life through this social media platform called Instagram! 

- Until Next Time XOXO

I have missed taking engagement images! 

A couple of weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to photograph these two! Our original shoot got canceled because of the rain... (It seriously rains every day in Florida during summer time. I had to move about four shoot's because of the rain!)

It ended up working out great! We got to shoot on a bright and beautiful sunny day! Caroline wanted to shoot at a canopy road. I don't know many in Sarasota, but did know of some locations in Tampa!

Low and behold, Caroline found a beautiful canopy road right near my house! How have a lived in SRQ my whole life and not know about this road? I'm not sure, but I am so thankful she found it! 

We started the shoot surrounded my beautiful big tree's and ended by the ocean, near downtown Sarasota! What a day!! 

P.s: Another awesome surprise that really made the shoot beautifully and different was they brought their dog for the pictures! How cute! 

As always, I posted the images below. I hope you enjoy them! 

Happy Monday

Angela Bilter / Class of 2017

A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to photograph the beautiful Angela Bilter! She drove from two hours away for the shoot and I couldn't be more thankful! 

During the shoot, I love to hear from my clients why they chose me. Asking them what they expect in their images! 

Angela said that she wanted bright tropical photographs like I used to do! I was so excited when she said that because that style is one of my favorite ways to shoot! 

I think it confused people sometimes when they see my clean all white Instagram feed. Just know, no matter what my insta feed looks like! I will always love creating tropical bright vibrant images! 

If you ask for if it, we can make it happen! 

I hope you enjoy the images from this shoot. We really went all out with all that beautiful Sarasota can offer! 

As always I look forward to hearing your feedback! I would love if you took the time to comment below it always helps me to grow! Till next Monday!

- XOXO
