Being a native Floridian and someone who has to work with famously unreliable weather, it is easy to forget how STUNNING this paradise we call home is. And it’s pretty great to be reminded of it while shooting engagement portraits for a couple from Ohio. I was literally thanking Brandi & Jason for bringing me out to Siesta Key Beach to shoot their portraits because it was one of the most beautiful evenings I’ve seen in a long time! We were all amazed by the sunset, and I was loving their sweetness with each other. Congratulations you two, thank you for this amazing session!

Engagement sessions for my booked brides & grooms are SO MUCH FUN and such a great way for us all to get to know each other a little before the big day. This one in particular was super stylish, at the amazing venue, Cottage on the Rocks on Siesta Key Beach. So much 70’s vibes (in a good way) and an amazing location right on the sand, I LOVE THIS PLACE!! Jillian & Nate are absolutely stunning and adorable with each other and I can’t wait for their wedding next year! (Hair & Makeup on Jillian by Katie McCaskill)
Ok guys I LOVE shooting proposals! It is so incredibly nerve-wracking and high-pressure and you feel like a creepy stalker (sometimes hiding in bushes so the person who’s about to be proposed to doesn’t catch on) but it is all worth it when you see the reaction! The raw emotions that happen during a proposal are literally why I love what I do for a living. And popping the question at Ringling Museum’s Ca d’Zan is extra amazing. Thank you Joel & Brooke for including me in this amazing moment (and thank you to the group of random girls who let me pretend to be taking photos of you when she walked up!!).
Sabrina and Ryan wanted to include their fur babies in their engagement session and of course I said YES PLEASE! We started the session at the park under the Ringling Bridge specifically so we could include them (and so they could get all dressed up!), then ended with just Sabrina and Ryan at Lido Beach. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next year!
