Haley & David: Love in Lake City
Haley and David forgot to mention that their "backyard wedding" might just be in one of the most lovely spots in Florida! I pulled up to discover a field of horses stamping in the sunlight, golden sun streaming through spring green trees and a beautiful home abutting a field lined with stacks of summery hay.
And despite the sticky-sweet heat of Florida summers we forged on through the thicket to create some truly lovely images in the woods that Haley played in as a young girl.
The juxtaposition of Haley in cowgirl boots and David in his taupe canvas Tom's just makes me smile.
I so look forward to your wedding this fall and of course to maybe sneaking Dixie a treat.

Jake & Nicole: Sweet Serendipity
Serendipity: noun.- good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries.
There is nothing more serendipitous than showing up for an engagement portrait session to find that he couple literally just got engaged! Jake surprised Nicole the eve before their portrait session in downtown Denver, which made for an extra special portrait session!
We had such a crazy day weather wise, that I was thrilled when the skies cleared up at the last minute to create these lovely photos. The big sky photo so reminds me of Jake's job as a pilot, especially with your tie flying behind you, so adorable.
I hope you enjoy all the wonderful images from your shoot, congrats on your engagement and I sincerely look forward to seeing you both again!
* Big thanks to Laura Lynn Brooks, of Elle Bea Photography, for the referral and super-dooper lighting assistance! It was so much fun shooting with you!
Nico & Audrianna: Downtown Denver
Nico and Audrianna drove all the way from Pueblo for their Engagement & Bridal Fashion sessions. I'm so flattered that you would make such a trip for your shoot!
Hope you love em too!
Pretty obvious that Nico is a personal trainer right?
Sooooo love the bodice of her gown!
I was kinda feeling in an artsy mood so I decided to create a little artwork with this cool overhead lit image from Audri's session.
Big props to Ashley Baayan Tyler, for her amazing hair, styling & makeup!

Manny & Jennifer: summer lovin
What can I say... you guys are the cat's pajamas! Seven fire-ant bites on my foot (9 for you!), about a million crazed gnats and 95 degree heat, and damn if it didn't come out looking like 72 degrees and breezy.
You are both now officially "grizzled veterans of summer portraiture". There should be a commemorative plate for that or something right?
I'm so looking forward to your wedding at the Baughman Center and Hippodrome State Theatre this October! See you soon and I hope you love these images, they are simply beautiful and were worth every drop of sweat!
Nicole and Joshua - A Day at the Beach
Joshua and Nicole met by chance while riding bikes right along this stretch of Jacksonville Beach. What better way to celebrate their engagement than revisiting that very same place?
We had a wonderful time photographing these two together. They're so easy and natural and obviously in love (not to mention good looking!). I can't to photograph their wedding on Hilton Head Island, coming up in just over a month!!
