Anne & Andrew’s Engagement Session

We met up with Anne & Andrew in New Smyrna Beach for their engagement session.  We knew they’d be photogenic, but man we didn’t realize HOW photogenic they’d be!  They are so cute together and were so easy to work with.  We had a little craziness trying to get to the beach since the annual New Smyrna holiday parade was going on, but we are always up for an adventure!  We had to find our way to the end of the Jetty via the beach since the roads were closed!  We ended up having the most beautiful sunset, so the detour was well worth being able to be there for that!  We all went to dinner after at the Riverside Grill, if you’ve never been you have to go, their food is amazing!  Here’s some images from their session, they will be getting married this spring so stay tuned for more from them! 

Lauren & Dave’s wedding!!!

Rebecca’s College Graduation Session

Rebecca is a friend of our fabulous hair stylist and friend Kelli.  She contacted us back in September about doing a college graduation shoot for her graduation anouncements.  We did her shoot the Saturday after Thanksgiving at Rollins College in Winter Park.  Rebecca will be graduating from Rollins in May then going on to law school!  She was an easy model and we had a ton of fun.  Her hair and makeup was done by Kelli Durrant.  Here’s some images from her session!

You probably remember Kelli Johnson, our amazing midwife who delivered our second child at home! She asked us to come by and do a family session for her the Friday after Thanksgiving. We did these photos at her home, on her gorgeous property. This property is a photographers dream! Kelli and her hubby have 5 kids and haven’t had family photos done in quite some time. Kelli also has a new grandbaby Jada who is beautiful!! If you are looking for a midwife Kelli is amazing and John and I both can’t say enough about her! You can find out more about Kelli HERE!

A big congratulations to Valerie & Scott. Thank you so much for choosing us to capture the memories of your wedding day. We love you guys! :)

US! Behind the scenes…

Our clients often ask how we work together, who gets what shots, etc.  So our friend Margie came up this past weekend to help us shoot Heather & John’s engagement session.  She also got some shots of us working together!  We always get shots of each other working, but we’ve never gotten some of us in the same photo together, so this was pretty cool!  I had to share these!  Thank you to Margie for capturing this for us, and thank you to Heather & John for allowing the “paparazzi” to follow you for the day!
