Betty & Kai both have artistic minds and a special fondness for the glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, so we spent some time in the magical rooms at downtown St. Pete’s Chihuly Collection for some super fun engagement photos (huge thank you to the Collection for letting us in!). We also wandered around some other artsy spots in St. Pete (we may or may not have snuck into the garden at the Dali, but I’ll just leave that right here). Loved hanging out with these two and can’t wait for their wedding next Spring!

A sunrise wake-up call can be a little daunting, but when you get to hang out on the beach with adorable clients like Clarice & Daniel in light as incredible as this, I cannot complain! Loved capturing these post-elopement portraits, definitely worth the early alarm!

The number one thing I miss about my job as a magazine photo editor is collaborating with other creatives. So shoots like this where I get to brainstorm fun ideas and bring them to life are SO MUCH FUN! Roger Capote, Director of Events at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens asked me to shoot a portrait of the 2016 Orchid Ball committee (you might remember last year’s amazing Orchid Ball Booth!) and he said the concept was “Regal”. So I scoured editorial shoots that included a lot of gorgeous women (we had 16!), we teamed up with the always amazing Priscilla from The Reserve Vintage Rentals and we created a pretty regal final product I think! The ladies made it easy by looking so glam, but you can’t tell at all it was about 90 degrees and 99% humidity that day! Can’t wait to see 2016’s Orchid Ball come together!creative Sarasota photographer, florida wedding photographer, Floridian wedding, modern wedding photography, Orchid Ball 2016, Orchid Ball Committee, Sarasota lifestyle photographer, Sarasota professional portraits, sarasota wedding, sarasota wedding photographer, Selby Gardens Event, Selby Gardens Photography, wedding detail photoscreative Sarasota photographer, florida wedding photographer, Floridian wedding, modern wedding photography, Orchid Ball 2016, Orchid Ball Committee, Sarasota lifestyle photographer, Sarasota professional portraits, sarasota wedding, sarasota wedding photographer, Selby Gardens Event, Selby Gardens Photography, wedding detail photoscreative Sarasota photographer, florida wedding photographer, Floridian wedding, modern wedding photography, Orchid Ball 2016, Orchid Ball Committee, Sarasota lifestyle photographer, Sarasota professional portraits, sarasota wedding, sarasota wedding photographer, Selby Gardens Event, Selby Gardens Photography, wedding detail photos

We had so much fun last month taking portraits of the lovely & beautiful staff at NK Productions Wedding Planning! I love working with Nicole and her crew (#squadgoals), they always go above and beyond their client’s expectations, are so organized (which is a dream for photographers) and are so much fun to be around. And I wasn’t surprised when they all showed up looking stunning in their coordinating cream ensembles! I’m used to taking silly pics of Nicole in The Fancy Booth, so it was a treat to get a little more serious for these professional portraits, and such a dream to be able to shoot them at The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota.

Catherine & John are a totally adorable couple, newly relocated to Sarasota and getting ready to be married (which I get to shoot next year, yahoo!). Their maternity session at the always beautiful Phillippi Estate was such a fun way to get to know these two and see how much they completely adore each other. Can’t wait to meet the little guy soon! Sarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternitySarasota maternity portraits, beach maternity photos, Sarasota maternity photographer, Phillippi Estate portraits, Phillippi Estate maternity
