Fun fun fun with a side of fun is exactly what I had with Madeline and Adam on our engagement session date 😉 And I would not expect anything less with getting to spend the day with a loving couple and Disney. Maddy and Adam have known of each other for quite some time but not till years later did they reconnect and find out they were a match made in Disney. Their first date was at Downtown Disney where they met at the entrance steps of Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba. It was there that they spent many dates, meals, and anniversaries celebrating their love and later became the location that would stage their special proposal. Adam coordinated for 3.5 months with family and friends across the globe as far out as Israel. After a 20 minute private ground tour of Cirque du Soleil they waited in the lobby where their friend strolled out with a guitar in hand playing “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. As Maddy and Adam danced, out poured from the theater curtains groups of family and friends. Down on one knee Adam went asking Madeline, “will you marry me?” Too excited to wait, she said yes and grabbed the ring to place on her finger! Its hard to think we all have to wait till 2017 for these two to walk the aisle.
Well, I have had nothing but F U N with Lisa and Will since we started hanging out and photographing their love story. These two have not stopped smiling and giggling since they met and I was able to witness this during their engagement session and now their wedding day! The day started with the sun shining and love in the air, and the sun went down with laughter, dancing, a new marriage and a Philly pretzel in my hand! Was a GREAT day 😉

I’m so excited to share with you my last wedding from 2015 and what a special day it was! The greatest honor I have as a photographer is having close friends and family ask me to capture their special life moments. When it comes to weddings, being able to celebrate as well as create and capture the best moments for the ones that mean the most, is truly what makes my job special. Now, I become close with all my couples whoop whoop which I love!! but Sam and Jared were close before the ring went on the finger at a secret surprise proposal that I also got to capture, as well as reliving their first date at the Amway Center for an engagement session. I will not be too far away to continue to watch and be a part of their beautiful love story.

Hot diggity dog! I am so happy to finally introduce to you Mr. and Mrs. Shekelton! I feel like I just shot their engagement photos 3 days prior to their wedding, haha that’s because we did. Brock is from Australia and so very happy he made it here in time for his wedding day! With little time we headed to Disney Boardwalk where we got to know each other very quick before walking down the aisle. When these two said their “I do’s” I do not think you could have asked for a better day. Everything was flawless as it unfolded and so happy to be on the other side of the camera to capture these special memories for them and their families. This is truly a match made in the happiest place on earth, Disney World!

Hello November! Well, the day that Brooke and Chris thought would never get here has come and gone and I am happy to share some special memories from their beautiful wedding day. Their hopes for me on their wedding day was to capture the day for what it truly was, two goofballs professing their faith and love to each other, and celebrating with their closest friends and family. I only hope I was able to capture everything this day had to offer, there was tears, laughs, and a whole lota dancing! After such big life events I become pretty close to all my families and couples (by close I mean I usually stalk them on Facebook for the rest of their lives) and I am excited to watch their love story grow!

There is no better way to get to a girls heart then to take her to an Orlando Magic game! So, that is exactly what Jared did with Sam and won over every quarter of her heart <3 It was only right to head back to the Amway Arena for a sunrise engagement shoot and make pure magic. I can’t wait to be at their December wedding with camera in one hand and a drink in the other to celebrate these two 😉
ps I do not drink and shoot!
So excited to share with you a warm summer evening and the newly weds that came with it! I had a little preview of these high school sweet hearts at their engagement session, and with the simplicity of their relationship the wedding day was seamless. From the perfect outdoor setting and the beautiful flowers in mason jars their love and care for each other took center stage (on the dance floor of course). I see these two making so many great memories in their years to come.

This soon to be beautiful bride has a special place in my heart. I could bore you with all the details but she has worked her way into my family and I could not be more happy for her and her future. I am super stoked we made this session happen with all the hoops we had to jump through but in the end it was more than worth it. So, congratulations to Wendi and Aaron the soon to be bride and groom.
Last month I had the honor of photographing Denise and Arnold’s intimate wedding. After watching the forecast all week with the chance of 80% rain, wouldn’t you know it, there was no sign of rain all morning, just a whole lot of sun and love! Congratulations to the beautiful couple, what an amazing day.
For those of you that do not know Pitch Perfect 2 comes out today, which is a big deal for our lovely couple Teresa and Eric!
I officially met these two at their Winter Park engagement session over some coffee. Sometimes my meet and greet with the bride and groom to be tends to run a little long. Well, our coffee date lasted quite a while as the three of us sat and laughed about life for what felt like days. Our immediate connection helped make for a great wedding day, with lots of laughs. It was a beautiful memorable day, and the wave of emotion was incredible. The moment Teresa stepped into her dress she became a true Bella and by the genuine smile on Eric’s face, he approved. This beautiful new family is in perfect harmony and I am super excited to be there for them!
