I am not a morning person at all but getting up in time for this gorgeous sunrise light was well worth it. Lovely Michelle is expecting her first child this year and I’m thrilled that we got to take these pictures together to capture this special time. She is wearing an Elouise gown in Ocean.

I first met John in entrepreneurship class in college. It’s fun to get to work together now that I actually am an entrepreneur! His fiance Janelle is a perfect match for him in every way. They are an adventurous fun couple and I had so much fun exploring fort de soto with them and capturing a little glimpse of their love. Here are a few of my favorites!

Today I have an intimate wedding ceremony on Anna Maria island to share. The bride and groom met at a concert while they were both in vacation in another state! I love hearing such romantic stories of fate and was thrilled to capture the celebration of their family joining together on a sunny summer afternoon in paradise. Here are a few of my favorite portraits we took while exploring the island together. Isn’t she absolutely stunning?
