Bryan and Justin's Sunrise Engagement Session-Vilano Beach, and St. Augustine, Florida

Bryan and Justin had the sweetest engagement session at Vilano Beach and then St. Augustine.  We met up before sunrise to capture the morning light and their casual beachy wardrobe was perfect for a summer session.  

I had so much fun with Bryan and Justin!  They are the sweetest couple and their happiness and love was a beautiful thing to photograph!

Sara and Shawn's Beachy Summer Engagement Session at Big Talbot Island

I met up with Sara and Sean at the driftwood beach at Big Talbot Island a few weeks ago, just got these scans in and had to share asap!  This engagement session could not have been more perfect, from Sara's flowy blue dress that made her eyes pop, to the gorgeous light, and the obvious chemistry between the two.  I am so excited for Sara and Sean to tie the knot this fall at Bowing Oaks Plantation!

Maternity Boudoir Shoot at Horton House Ruins, Jekyll Island, Georgia

I’m in love with how these pictures turned out.  Paige looks radiant, glowing, and confident.  I hope to inspire more women to embrace their pregnant bodies and take a more boudoir-esque approach to their own maternity shoots.  Pregnancy is such a brief but special chapter of our lives and it deserves to be celebrated with gorgeous images!

Taylor and Tyler- Engagement Session in San Marco- Jacksonville, Florida Film and Fine Art Wedding Photography

Taylor and Tyler are a picture perfect couple.  They are sweet and laid back and also very easy on the eyes (and the camera!)  We met up in San Marco on a rainy Sunday and took advantage of the brief moments that the sun peeked out through the clouds.  

I’ve been using Portra 800 for gloomy days like this and I love how this film stock provides a little extra needed “pop” and what it does with blues and greens.  Taylor has gorgeous eyes to begin with and I love how the Portra brought out the aquas in them.  Beautiful film stock and a beautiful couple... you can’t go wrong!
