Emily & Jim Engagement - Harkness State Park

Emily & Jim, with their wedding date set in December, were excited for their engagement shoot at Harkness Park.  But the weather that day wasn’t looking great.  The day of the shoot, we kept going back and forth about cancelling or not when I checked my voicemail one last time and it was Emily saying, “We’re on our way.”   And I’m so happy we went for it.  The fog created such a dramatic photo shoot, and with it, some of my favorite engagement photos!  Can't wait for the wedding!


Ryan & Lori- Fort Myers Country Club

It was obvious from the first time I met Ryan & Lori how in love they are with each other.  They had the most perfect day for their wedding in Fort Myers, FL.  It was a fun-filled evening with a lot of laughs and love.  Congratulations to a beautiful couple.

FLORIDA 36th State to Legalize Gay Marraige

Last year I had the honor of photographing two gay marriages, Jenna & Betsy and Manny & Mo.  I absolutely loved photographing both of these weddings!  Of course, the fact that all four of these ladies are beautiful, fun, and down to earth is what made the whole experience a pleasure. 

It is crazy to think that just over 10 years ago neither of these two couples could have exercised this civil right, a right that is so deeply rooted in our hearts and identity.  Thankfully, progressive states have taken the lead and others are following (FL legalized gay marriage yesterday - Jan 6th, 2015, becoming the 36th state).


I hope to have the honor of photographing several more gay marriages in 2015, maybe even one in FLA during its inaugural legal year.
