LA Day 3

I am sitting right now in a coffee shop called "Open Space" that we found while walking around. Just journaling talking with my friends and listening to some great music from Taylor boy friend! When I tell you I am surrounded by talent its Gods endless beauty that is over flowing.

Exploring LA Day 2: 

I started my first full day in LA by surprising Taylor. (Side note: I ruined the surprise by posting it on social media. I thought I had blocked her but I missed one of my accounts and she saw it.)

Exploring LA Day 1

I'm doing something so unexpected and out of character…I'm flying out to LA

I got the call a month ago from my childhood best friend's boyfriend asking me to fly out to LA for her birthday. I said yes, not really thinking before I said it. It's Los Angeles I mean why wouldn't I want to go!

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. 

- XOXOX

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
