We were blessed with an unseasonably warm February afternoon for this Valentine’s Day mini-session.

The sun was a little harsh and the garden was brown, but Lisa and Doug brought all the warm Valentine’s season vibes. This adorable pair were first time clients, but we made total magic out of this short 30 minute session! I’m quite looking forward to photographing their little family (and baby!) again later this year.

Just a couple weeks before his wedding date, one of my good friends from high school posted on Facebook looking for wedding photographers. I immediately commented with an emoji and sent him a direct message volunteering my services. I couldn’t have been more flattered by his response, which was something along the lines of “I’m so glad you reached out because I was honestly thinking of you when I posted that.” Luckily we were both on the same page, and I feel so privileged to have been a part of their day.

We were graced with an unseasonably warm December day, and the sunset over Sandbridge beach was stunning. This was a super small family affair beginning with a brief ceremony in the over-sized living room at the top floor of a beach house. Decorations and details were simple and elegant, and the cake was home made by the mother of the groom. I’m sure she’ll hate me for it, but I couldn’t help but take a picture of the cake after it had been partially deconstructed. It looks almost as delicious as it actually was. I think my mouth is beginning to water just thinking about it.

I’ve been eager to start taking wedding photos for a while and this was the best possible way to begin my journey. I’m excited for everything 2019 has to offer.
