October 28th, 2012

I can't wait to share some more teasers from NYC Bridal fashion week- they are being published so I can only share a select few. Let me just say I was blown away and can't wait for next year :)

I loved the detail on this Ines Di Santo gown- the detail was so beautiful!

October 1st, 2012

I recently had the honor to showcase some of Terry from Save the Date's designs. She had two showcase tables at the PWG bridal show and she asked me to take some photos for her. I love being able to show off her hard work and creative ideas. Here are a few from that morning, and I will post more soon. I LOVED her ice table, she had snow and all! I loved the silver linen and the sashes (on the Chair Affair's silver and clear Chiavari chairs), and how the stationary matched so well! The following vendors came together to make her tables possible:

Dogwood Blossom Stationary and Invitation Studio

Lee Forrest Design

A Chair Affair


September 19th, 2012

Wow, I just found a new favorite place to shoot! I met Kendra and Brett for their engagement photos, and they had such cool ideas. They brought a record player and some sweet vinyls, and we did a little picnic setting. I'll show those soon, but first, here are a few from their session! Her ring is so pretty and unique!

One of the fun things about the family session was that I got to shoot with my favorite second shooter- my Mom! She is in town and I love that we can share the same passions together :) She is quite the baby whisperer!


August 10th , 2012

Ready for some cuteness! Check out Baby E dipping her toes in the ocean! I loved this session, it was for a family who was in town on vacation and was a perfect way to end their stay with some fun memories on the beach.

I love this album spread from Lauren and Andy's wedding at the Lightner Museum. They were just hanging out on the bridge having a moment. I love the one on the left side where they were cracking up. Shooting in St. Augustine is so fun, there are so many photo opportunities!

May 1st, 2012

We got the chance to shoot at an Indian Bridal Expo- the colors were amazing! I loved the intricate designs, and sparkle!



April 15th, 2012

Congratulations Krysta and Adrian! They are getting married in December after Adrian returns from his deployment. He leaves very soon, so it was really special to be able to shoot these images for them both to have when they are apart. They were so cute together, and did you know they are high school sweethearts?

April 7th, 2012

March 29th, 2012

I cannot wait to share the rest of these images! Misty Miotto hosted a lighting workshop that let me try out a few new techniques, it was super fun! This was from Gian Carlo's section. I've worked with Gian on a few of my weddings and he's awesome to shoot with! See that red wall- that was from Kristen's (Our DJ Rocks) awesome uplighting and wall wash! Lighting really sets the mood ;)


March 20th, 2012

Want to have a little fun at your reception? How about a photo booth for your guests? These two had a blast at the Weddings around the World bridal show at the Florida hotel. They were models in the fashion show, but weren't afraid to let loose back stage ;)

March 15th, 2012

Isn't the back of this dress amazing?! I shot this at the Jax PWG bridal show, I loved the details of this dress.


March 10th, 2012

March 1st , 2012

While in Jacksonville this past January, we had a bridal shoot at the Wine Cellar with some beautiful brides for the day and the pictures are simply breathtaking. The outside courtyard gave us such a rustic, old time feel and Yvonne had such a classic beauty about her that we felt like we were swept back to Italy! The off the shoulder dress was decorated with lace accents and it hugged the body elegantly. All this style needed was just a touch of jewelry so the earrings was all Yvonne needed to make this ensemble work.

It was wonderful showcasing the beautiful dresses, and awesome venue. The wine cellar would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner, reception, and even an intimate ceremony. Their award-winning cuisine and wine pairings will delight your taste buds for a night you won't forget.

Styling was by Misty Miotto & Amalie Orrange, Models Christina Medina, Laurenth Vanessa Veloz & Emelly Joe, Make up and Hair by Beaute Speciale, Location by Joe Crawford. Big thanks to all involved!

November 27th, 2011 -Daytona Beach Engagement!

Our facebook has more from this shoot, but wanted to post this fun jumping photo. I have gotten several requests over the past few months to capture the couple "jumping" for joy- so here's one of Karishma and her Fiance- who won an engagement shoot at the Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal show. They said they wanted to jump "like in the Toyota commercial", did they do it right?


November 22nd, 2011 -Clearwater Wedding!

Our next Wedding brought us to Clearwater, FL for Lauren and Keith's beach wedding. It was full of family, fun, sun, and a bit of wind ;) We were treated to the most amazing sunset, it just kept getting better and better! Started with a beautiful orange hue that went to red, and then a deep purple. We were all in awe! Can't wait to post more!



November 18th, 2011 -Daytona, St. Augustine and Clearwater Weddings!

Here are a few teasers of what has kept us busy the past few months. We are in the process of switching blog platforms so these are just highlights. The full posts will be out with the unveiling of our new blog. Our first couple was Shannon and Ryan, and they got married at the Tavern and Chapel in the Garden in Port Orange, FL. They had a really cool location, and got to take advantage of a Chapel wedding (thank goodness since it had a/c and it was super hot!)



September 9th, 2011

August was a super busy travel month, with shoots in NY, MA, WI and NC. I had so much time to think about new ideas, and how as a whole CIF has grown. I'm very thankful for what I have been able to experience in the past 6 years, and excited for what the future will bring. While sitting on the plane talking to one of my seatmates, while flying from Orlando to Albany, a fun idea was born. I was talking about all the diverse shoots I would be doing, and all the states I'd be visiting. At the time, I had an editorial, a concept shoot, a wedding, a sled dog team portrait, a waterski shoot and a maternity shoot. She made the comment that while I do specialize in weddings, it seems I do a variety of other shoots, and that my life sounded a bit unique. I think she used the word crazy, but I like to think of it as crazy fun ;) Because of all the travel, she had a great idea to document and do little video segments with the catchphrase "where's the shoot?!". I'm not one to be in front of the camera (and talk?!) but it sounded like a great idea, and maybe one day could be a hit TV show (I like to dream big lol). But for now, I'll be putting together more of a "day in the life" documentary clips that tell a little about what I am doing, where I am doing it, and WHY :) Stay tuned!

Special meet and greets this Saturday in Jacksonville, Sunday in Daytona and then Orlando Tuesday. Email to pick your time!


September 1st, 2011 - Brit and Ian - Day after shoot - Amsterdam, NY

I love "Day after shoots"! It is such a laid back relaxed way to get some awesome shots, without the hustle and bustle that comes with the wedding day. It's a low stress fun shoot, that I recommend to all my couples! Brit is a friend of one of my FL November Brides, and they grew up in upstate NY. The stars aligned and I was able to shoot Brit and Ian while I was in NY for other sessions and to visit family. The session was on their family property which was a photographers dream, with ponds, fields, rock fences and beautiful trees. I love shooting outside of FL to get a change of scenery and I was so lucky to be able to shoot these two with such a scenic backdrop. Fun fact, the tall pine trees (the row we shot in between) were planted when Ian was born- how cool is that!. I also got to shoot with my Mom assisting me, which is always a treat :) The last wedding we shot was in December so, it had been a while!




August 30th , 2011 - Sarah and Tim - Wedding -Milwaukee, WI

This was such a memorable wedding, from the couple, the family, the details, to the venue (and its transformation), and how I'll never forget such wonderful family hospitality. The one thing no one could quite remember was how Tim and I actually met. I knew we had gone to the same school, had a few mutual friends, had been facebook friends for a while, but never could pin down where/when we met. Finally came up with that we must have done a Human Factors project along the way together or had a class together...took me a while to make that connection because he currently is flying. (I didn't fly at ERAU). Anyway, it was such an honor to be able to capture their wedding memories and experience their wedding weekend with them. I'll do a full post soon, because there are several people to thank and vendors to credit :) But, I wanted to start with Thanking Tim and Sarah for having me along for the ride!




July 4th, 2011

Happy Fourth of July! Not only do we get to celebrate our independence I get to do a little happy dance about my first unsolicited blog feature! Alicia emailed me after seeing the photos on facebook (and couldn't get them out of her head!). It couldn't have happened to a better family or with a better blog either! Jodi and Jeremy got married on Dec 30th on his two week leave from the ARMY. Before that I got to know his family through several portrait sessions. It was a great way for them to stay in touch- plus with how fast kids grow up, (they have 5!) photos are a great way to keep connected. The blog that featured the session was The Charity Wedding . Could not have been a better blog, because it rings so true to what I believe in. As you know I am very involved in the community and sharing my time and talents. I regularly volunteer teaching the disabled how to waterski though UCANSki2, and this year I'll be again participating in the Images For a Cure event (where session fees are donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation). I love all the ideas on her blog, and how the idea came about. It is great seeing all the different ways people can make a difference for others. Anyway- thank you to Jeremy and his family (and everyone else who serves) for protecting our freedoms! Also thank you to Alicia for the feature! A few teasers below, but head on over to the Charity Wedding's page for the rest.



July 2nd, 2011

I'm on vacation! We'll sort of :) I always like to shoot anywhere I can, and this time my travels bring me to a family vacation in Gilford NH. Britt and Eileen were my willing models today, and while the weather didn't fully cooperate, we made the best of it. It was great shooting with my Mom again, if she lets me, I'll feature some of her images too :) Here are two teasers, and will edit some more when things slow down in September. Also- stay tuned for another feature of Eileen and an exciting announcement!


June 1st, 2011

Julienne and Jimmy got married yesterday in St. Augustine- Congratulations! Their reception was at the Casa Monica and they had so many special touches- the family owns a custom landscaping business and they did all the centerpeices and decor out on the pool deck, it looked great! We had a fun time going around the historic district taking photos, and here are a few teasers! I loved Julienne's dress and bridesmaids colors! The guava was such a fun color, and is becoming very popular!


May 29th, 2011

Congratulations Ashley and Lucas! Your wedding was beautiful yesterday at Masion and Jardin, and it was wonderful getting to know your family. You are truly blessed :) Here are a few teasers!





May 5th, 2011

I love when I get referrals! Krista's mom (Kandi) was the officiant at my October 2nd Jacksonville Wedding (Michelle and Caleb) and her sister was in the bridal party. These two familes and their friends are so fun to work with! It was great to see them again! Krista and Trevor got married in Ponte Verdra Beach, at a private beachfront residence. It was such a great place! Their guests watched the beach ceremony from the house balcony- they had a birds eye view! The ocean is always a great backdrop, but it was an absolutely perfect day. Not too hot, with just enough breeze to have her veil do that pretty flutter ;) Here are some preview pictures!



April 13, 2011

This wedding was to die for! It was held at the Jacksonville Zoo, and had so many personal touches. I loved the handmade brooch bouquet, and the cake topper. It was made to look just like them!! They danced the night away in the Range of the Jaguars, and could have partied all night if security hadn't reminded us that the animals needed their beauty sleep!! Will be posting more as I finish editing them. Stay tuned :)



April 11, 2011

I can not wait to show the rest of this shoot, I'll be using the images in a promo for Breast cancer awareness month and my Images For a Cure shoots in October. Lauren was my wonderful model, and is also one of my November Brides. I've had this idea to shoot in front of this awesome pink tree near my house while it is in bloom. It is absolutley breath taking, and full of pink blossoms that are like the flowers on a cherry blossom tree but more vivid in color. The day didn't really go as planned since once Lauren was ready, we went outside for some test shots, and the sky opens up with rain. All was not lost, as while we were waiting for the sky to clear we did a few shots in the lanai outside. Meanwhile I was praying all the flowers weren't getting knocked off by the rain and wind. It cleared enough to shoot a little later at the tree, and I'll show those closer to October. Isn't she beautiful :)



April 10, 2011

Ashley got to rock the dress a few weeks ago as my muse :) I think she did quite well!


April 8, 2011

YAY for seeing my past brides and grooms again! I shot Michelle and Caleb's wedding in October- and it was neat seeing them again as newlyweds :) Originally they were having their wedding in Key West, but then changed to Jacksonville. While their wedding location was beautiful, they missed out on their "beachy" photos. For their "day after" shoot, they selected Ponce Inlet for the location, and we were able to get lots of sun and sand for a backdrop. It was pretty windy, but we were able to work with it, and get the wind-blown model-esque look!


March 16th, 2011

Here are Jason and Susie's sneeks from Cypress Grove Park in Orlando. Misty Miotto held a posing workshop and shared her wedding wisdom with the Orlando PUG. The PUG is a awesome group of people that keep my skills sharp and push me to be a better photographer. Jason and Susie had incredible chemistry, and I loved seeing them interact with each other. She's got some killer sass, and he is madly in love with her :) Loved trying new ways to get couples to relax in front of my lens. It was a true photo safari, complete with a wheel barrel and borrowing a barbie kite from a 5 year old! Thanks again, Misty, Nelio, Jason and Susie.


March 4th, 2011

So, my blog readers know that this past November I held a day of shoots where I donated the session fees to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation through Images For a Cure. Images For a Cure (IFAC) was founded by Kristen Weaver (of Kristen Weaver Photography) and is a way for photographers to give back, while using their talents. This week was the second part of Images For a Cure- workshop. I had a wonderful time, but am exhausted so will blog more soon. Here are a few teasers from my session with the beautiful couple Laura and Jon. They were stunning, and we shot at Church street in downtown Orlando which I haven't been to before! It was super fun! Thank you to our studio hosts Melanie and Brad Watson of La Dolce Vida!
