Stacey & Craig

My little sister's best friend wanted us to take her and her boyfriend out for a session. We're so, so glad we did! Nate and I both agree this was one of our best sessions of the year, and we'll be spotlighting them on our "Root Seniors" section of the website, which is currently in the works, among other things. :) We started out at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and ended up at the Grand Floridian, and we've quickly become a fan of both!

Nate and I are getting married one year from today! We'll be gone for the weekend to celebrate our pre-anniversary. I hope everyone has a great week! If you're in the Orlando area, be sure to go to the nightly Celebration Snowfall; it's one of my favorite things to do this season. :)

Brantly Walter

Part two of Brantly's session. My absolute favorite thing about this session was the fact that he had his hands curled up and looked like a bunny rabbit for most of the time. :)

Stefanie and Steven

This couple got married at the bride's parents' home here in Orlando, and the reception took place in an outdoor tent. It was nice and low key, with gerber daisies as the main flower and country music taking over the reception. :) Thank you to Tracy Marini of Eventfully Yours for making it all happen!

Brooke & Christopher

Brooke is one of our avid blog readers, so quite frankly, I love her. :) Brooke and Christopher were one of our favorite couples to watch warm up to the cameras. They were so involved in the moment, and right away knew what to do. We did their engagement session at Disney's Boardwalk and the Yacht and Beach Resorts and they did an excellent job at keeping it family-friendly. We love you Brooke!

Erin & Chris

Erin and Chris wanted to do their engagement session around their neighborhood with their Corgi, Rupert. This was our first e-session that included a pet, so we really had a good time with it. Thanks to Erin and Chris for inviting us into your home; we'll see you in May! :)

I'm so sorry for the lack of updates lately! November has been our busiest month yet, so we're still playing catch-up. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break and that you all have a wonderful December!!

Megan & Jeff

Megan and Jeff got married at the beautiful Grand Plaza Hotel in St. Pete, Florida. The hotel was great to work with, and the beach didn't disappoint, either! The wedding day went so smoothly, you never would have thought it was planned in four months all the way from Atlanta! Megan did an amazing job putting it all together. :) If you'd like to see more from their wedding day, check out their wedding slideshow!

Jessie & Rob

We started Jessie & Rob's engagement session at Casa Feliz, went to the Maitland Art Center next, and ended at Azalia Gardens in Winter Park. It was so great getting to know them, and we're just thrilled for their wedding this January!

By the way, Nate and I put in the deposit for our wedding reception at Casa Feliz! Only 13 months to go!!

Ed & Linda

We love doing weddings in Fort Lauderdale because that means we get to stay with Nathan's Mom! We ended up making a small trip out of Ed and Linda's wedding weekend, and were able to visit Nate's sister at the University of Miami and squeeze in a meeting before heading home! It was a good weekend all around, and the wedding wasn't half bad either. ;)

Shannon & Ryan

These guys made me laugh so hard! Shannon was a bridesmaid in Adam and Jennifer's wedding and she contacted us to take their engagement photos. We took them to our favorite spots at New Symrna Beach and had a blast getting to know them in the meantime!

Brantly Walter

Our very first wedding clients just had their first child! We're so happy for them, and are honored that they asked us to do their baby session. Congratulations, Bethany and Michael!

Jennifer & Steve

For this session, we couldn't have had a better location, weather, or couple to work with! Jennifer and Steve met us at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Soon after meeting, we immediately started snapping away, and two hours and an outfit change later, we were done. Jennifer and Steve made it so easy, and we're thrilled for their March 31st wedding!

Happy Halloween!

Jim & Jill

A few weeks ago, we photographed Jim and Jill's wedding in downtown Orlando. Their reception was a one of a kind event at the Hyatt Regency in the Orlando airport! Our favorite part of the day was the group shots- We started slow, but before long, the group's true character came out, and we were able to snag some really fun pictures. We shot as associate photogaphers for Brian Adams. We wish Jim & Jill the very best as they start their new life together!

Stefanie & Steve

Stefanie and Steve found us through the wonderful Tracy Marini of Eventfully Yours. If you're looking for someone to orchestrate an entire wedding, or you simply need a coordinator to help you on the big day, Eventfully Yours is the way to go! We look forward to Stefanie and Steve's wedding Thanksgiving weekend!

Baldwin Park !!

Thanks to the dazzling Chris & Tina, Nathan and I were able to participate in the Baldwin Park Business Expo! It was a great experience to share our love of photography with the residences and meet some awesome people in the meantime. Of course, Nathan couldn't keep his hands off our newest addition to the "family"... a Canon EOS 30D! He was able to walk around and get killer shots of local pets. We had such a wonderful time and look forward to setting up camp next year! Hopefully the sun won't be AS brutal. ;)

Laura & Jason

Nathan and I finally did something I've wanted to do for so long.. A photoshoot in the Magic Kingdom! For my friend Laura's birthday, I told her we'd take her and Jason, her boyfriend, out for a shoot. Since 3 of the 4 of us have been castmembers at some point in time, we couldn't have picked a more perfect place for these Disney nuts! We had too much fun and were able to go to my favorite secret spots. :) Can't wait to do it again!

Scarlett in Downtown Orlando!

Nathan went out with a group of photographers last week and did a shoot in downtown Orlando. You'd think the model was, well, a model and not a local videographer! If you're looking for a videographer, Scarlett comes highly reccomended! Head on over to her website, Captivating Studios if you're interested!

It's so hard to believe that Mackenzie is the same baby we photographed just a couple months ago! She's really growing into quite the little lady. We can't wait to see her again in a couple months!

Kaley & Mitch

We're so excited for Mitch and Kaley's wedding next August!! Not only are they great people, but the guy who introduced Nathan and I will be a groomsman in the wedding! We had the privilege to meet Kaley's incredible family on the day of the engagement shoot, and now we can't wait for the wedding!

Kalina & James

Kalina and James were married last month at Sunken Gardens in St. Pete, Florida. They only had around 30 guests, and the reception was held at Kalina's home. It was such a classy and peaceful wedding, just like the couple! Best of luck to James and Kalina!

Otto Boys

These are some shots from a kids session in Leu Gardens with the Otto boys! The boys were so much fun to chase around. Even though our business mainly focuses on weddings, we're always delighted when we get the chance to do a family session!!

Alisha & Tevin

Typically, Nate and I like to find as many unique locations as possible, but lately, we've really been digging Disney's Boardwalk Resort for our engagement sessions. I think that everytime we go we find a new path, hallway, or room that we never knew existed. It's funny how we can take two couples to one location and get completely different results every time. We were so lucky during Alisha & Tevin's session, as there was a rather large thunderstorm moving in. It started to rain about 10 minutes after we were outside, but then we broke out the umbrella and ended up loving the shots! They were such great sports despite the weather!

Congratulations, ya'll, and good luck with the wedding plans!

Sarah & Dan

What an easy going, head over heels in love couple! It normally takes our clients a few minutes to get used to Nate and I capturing every move, but Sarah and Dan were so comfortable with us right off the bat!

We're so excited for your wedding, guys, and I love that your date is on the best holiday of the year (my birthday)! See you in March!

Adam & Jennifer

We had so much fun doing Adam and Jennifer's engagement sessions a few months ago, and the wedding proved to be no different! Congratulations you two, and we hope your marriage brings nothing but happiness to both of you!

Mackenzie Lorelai

Last week we were able to do our very first newborn photo session! Mackenzie Lorelai was one week old, and the perfect first baby to work with. (Her incredibly patient parents weren't so bad, either!) We had so much fun capturing the love between this bundle of joy and her doting parents! Welcome to the world, Mackenzie! We look forward to our next play date!!
