A big congratulations to Ali and Bradley, Mr. and Mrs. Markley. They got married last weekend in Gainesville, Florida at The Baughman Center at the University of Florida. They were accompanied by their “Best Dog” Ace and 40 of their friends and family who came from all across the country. The Gainesville Garden Club hosted the reception. It was a beautiful day and I was glad to be apart of it!
A big congratulations to Pranshanth & Yanel on their recent engagement. We had a fantastic session following my Wildflower Minis in Hampton, Florida. This field is about 20 minutes outside Gainesville. Both residents at UFHealth, Pranshanth & Yanel will be married next year in South Florida. Congrats again guys!
TBT to Barbara & Abel’s wedding in September 2015. Barbara was one of the most stunning brides I’ve ever seen. She was so excited to see the secret messages left on the bottom of her wedding shoes by Abel earlier that day.
Abigail Ruby Maxwell was born on April 10 at 9:10 at North Florida Regional Medical Center. I got to be there the moment her big sister Ella met her for the first time. Such a beautiful interaction to witness. I’m so happy for my friends Chelsea and Brandon on the new addition to their family.
Autumn and her baby girl were the first wildflower minis of the year. What a beautiful mother and daughter to start with. This flower field is in Hampton, Fl and is my favorite place to take photos. Enjoy! I have 2 spots open for mini sessions on May 5. Message me if you are interested.
TBT to Brandi & Jacob’s Ocala, Florida Wedding back in 2015. It was a lovely event. The couple welcomed a new baby boy into their family of 3 last year in 2018.
TBT to Nicole and Rick’s Wedding in November 2014. Nicole and I were roommates at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. She met Ricky when she moved back home to St. Petersburg after school. I was so proud and happy to be asked to photograph such an awesome couple. It was a beautiful wedding on the beach with perfect weather.
About a year ago, I got an email from someone in the Philippines who was raising money to hire a photographer in Gainesville, Florida. The parents of the newborn baby boy flew around the world to get treatment at UFHealth. He was in need of a heart transplant. I met Hunter Fenix and his parents a year ago and their story is extraordinary. He got his heart when he was 4 months old and his first birthday was really something to celebrate. Happy 1st Birthday Hunter!

It was such a joy to meet and photograph this little angel. Evelyn Fern is the daughter of my good friends Koertni & Brad.
TBT to my first newborn shoot with Kathleen, David, and Baby Joseph. This was back in 2015. I have learned so much since then, but I am grateful for the experience. (Not such a baby) Joseph is now a big brother.
Barbara was one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen. That beauty was only toped by the amount of love these two had for each other. Abel secretly wrote a message for her on the bottom of her shoes.
A little pink for Valentine’s Day. With a name like Grace King, this little girl is destined for greatness. I loved being there at UF Health to capture her first day in the world.
Super cool wedding here in Gainesville, Florida. Ashley looked like a princess! Thanks for letting me be part of your big day! A big thank you to the Florida Museum for featuring their wedding and my photography on their blog. Link below:
One of my favorite families to photograph. I have loved watching these two as they experience life’s great joys. This shoot was one of the hardest I have done with a newborn, 2 year old, and 2 dogs, but those smiles make it all worth it. (And puppy snuggles)
A wonderful & unique day!
My Grandmother graciously took my family on an Alaskan cruise. I have never seen anything more beautiful.
My best friend's sister recently got married in Gainesville, Florida. We had a wonderful time.
