Capturing these memories for Laurel and Nick of their Historic Downtown Savannah GA Intimate Wedding was nothing short of an absolute honor!
Believe me when I say that being a Disney Honeymoon Photographer for my couples, has it's perks like when Jasmine and Joseph came all of the way from Singapore for their Disney Honeymoon Photos. During their amazing Honeymoon trip to the Magic Kingdom we were running all around the park having a blast. Spending time with Jasmine and Joseph and being their Disney Honeymoon photographer was seriously so much fun!
Even though there is a 12 hour difference between myself and them, we were able to hash out all of the details of their Disney Honeymoon Session and there were no worries for them once they landed in Orlando. They had never been on the Dumbo ride before, and it was so fun to see Joseph really having fun!
Are you planning your Disney trip and want to capture all of the fun and adventure - let’s book a fun Disney Engagement photo session or a Disney Honeymoon photo session!
The gorgeous bohemian inspired outdoor wedding of Courtney and Zach at Mission Inn Resort in Howey in the Hills, Florida is one of my most memorable wedding days to date. Courtney is a videographer (you can find her amazing work here: fondafotofilm.com) and I was honored to be trusted to capture her amazing wedding - it's always a little more nerve racking when a fellow artist comes to you for their photographs, so I take a lot of heart in the fact that I was able to be a part of such a magical experience.
Weddings at the Mission Inn Resort in Howey in the Hills (near Orlando Fl) are always amazing! They are filled with gorgeous backdrops because the venue is one of the most unique in Orlando, with their outdoor areas. Filled with beautiful, huge trees, pretty paths and lush greenery everywhere, it's a laid-back bohemian brides dream and I love when Brides choose me to capture their wedding there.
Courtney and Zach chose the Mission Inn Resort because of the pretty ceremony area and the large reception room right off of a large patio - their wedding day was absolutely perfect. Early that morning they had a small Temple sealing and exit at The Orlando Temple in Windermere and you can find that here: .
The absolutely gorgeous Tradewinds Island Grand Resort Beach wedding of Ashley and Dan is seriously one for the record books! The weather on St Pete Beach for this wedding was something that you can only wish for. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and the sun was warm on your face, but was sure not to make you sweat your hiney off.
Ashley and Dan invited all of their friends and family from up north to come celebrate with them at the TradeWinds Resort in St Pete because they had fallen in love with it on one of their many vacations to the resort. What better way to share your special day, than to spend it on the beach!
Ashley chose purple and teal as her beach wedding colors since they are so tropical. Her orchid bouquet and ceremony flowers were beautiful - they added the just perfect touch of beach-y-ness. I for one, can't get enough beach weddings and at sunset too - bring 'em on!

There is something just so wonderful about a magical Disney Engagement session at Magic Kingdom, that I find it difficult to even describe it. A Magic Kingdom Engagement photo shoot is like being in your favorite place with your favorite person, surrounded by loads of fun! A Disney Engagement Session is filled with lots of laughs and cuddles - book one today!
Whenever a couple comes to visit Orlando and they schedule some time at the Disney parks like the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and the Animal Kingdom, their time to enjoy everything is typically pretty quick - no more than 2 weeks. So, when they schedule a family or couple's session, I'm able to spread that time out a little bit for them. Since they booked a Disney session, they are able to have gorgeous photos to keep forever and share with all of their family and friends!
Peggy and Jared came all of the way from Canada to enjoy Disney together - so they wanted to have some Disney Engagement Photos taken while they were at the Magic Kingdom and they reached out to me, since I'm a Disney Engagement Photographer. Yay!! Just like most of my families and couples, they had never met me before, so I made sure to give them tons of tips and tricks for their session as well as made sure that we had the plan of meeting spot and details figured out well before their trip - stress free is the name of the game. Peggy and I messaged each other throughout the months before their session. She wanted to make sure that she and Jared had the perfect outfits - and I think that they did an awesome job choosing them! Peggy created all of her dresses for her trip to Orlando, and they were simply amazing - she has awesome talent! This little mint dress had tiny flamingos all over it - so freakin' adorable! I love when my clients find a way to make their session even more special and super personal by adding their own touch of creativeness.
The perfect sunset beach wedding in a private beach home in Vero Beach, FL was exactly what Abbey and Chris were dreaming of. The sun was big and beautiful for their vows but it wasn't too incredibly hot yet - because we all know that Florida can get hella-hot.
Abbey's wispy and pretty wedding dress was absolutely gorgeous along side Chris' casual suit. The bridesmaids dresses matched the sea perfectly with a differing shades of blue. Their families came from all over the U.S. to celebrate on the beach with them, and I am sure that they were so happy that they did.
The day that you choose to say the vows that you mean with all of your heart, to the person that you love with all of your heart doesn't have to be a huge to-do, it can be just an intimate wedding at your family home even in Melbourne, FL. Catherine and Donnie decided to do just that - have their sweet wedding at Catherine's Parent's home in Melbourne, FL where a few of their children, their closest friends and their amazing families could celebrate with them.
That morning was gorgeous but as the day wore on, the rain started to come down like crazy. So, being the sweet little laid-back bride that she is, Catherine decided to bring her garden ceremony inside. Her parent's living room, complete with a huge fireplace, was the perfect little spot for them to say their I do's. Their amazing intimate home wedding was simply gorgeous and I wouldn't want it any other way.
The Italian Countryside is absolutely breathtaking and if you get a chance to have a tour of a gorgeous Italian family Vineyard like Schiena Vini Vineyards, you just have to drop whatever you're doing and go join in the fun! Maria of Scuola Mondo Italia Homestay was our tour guide for our day at the Vineyard and she is amazing! She cracks the funniest of jokes and made the tour so enjoyable.
Giuseppe Schiena is the 6th generation owner of the vineyard (handed down to him from his Father for 6 generations) and he is one tough cookie with the biggest of hearts! He just welcomed all of us into his amazing Vineyard and showed us all around his beautiful vines. Even without speaking a word of English, we all could see that he takes amazing pride in his family vineyard so that he can pass the legacy down to his son one day.
