| Lilly + Eric | Engagement Session | Malibu, California

Lilly + Eric are a very relaxed couple. They way this way of making you feel like you are calm, also they are super easy to talk to. They know each other like the back of their hand, and they compliment each other so well, and the way he looks at her is just amazing. There session was in Malibu and it could not of been a better place for them, since they will be getting married next year in Mexico! Funny story is that I did Lilly’s little brother engagement session about a month ago. You might remember Laura + Adam, the youngest people I had the honor to meet and photograph. Adam is completely different from Lilly and I was so thankful to be able to meet both. Eric is a very lucky man if you haven’t noticed yet, because Lilly is just beautiful and she is going to look breathtaking on her wedding day.

Lilly + Eric thank you guys for choosing me to do your engagement photos and most of all allowing me to hang out and getting to know you guys!! I cannot wait to see what the future holds for you both and especially your wedding! You both are meant for each other and there is no doubt about that! I am blessed to call you guys friends and that I was able to be part of your journey in life.

| Paloma + Charlie | Anniversary Session | San Diego, California

Paloma + Charlie are just the sweetest and most fun people I have ever met. Paloma reached out to me a couple years back, wanting to do a session with me but I was in a different season in my life. Fast forward to the beginning of the year, she was really wanted to have her photos updated with her husband and wished I lived in California. To her surprised I was back in California and she was super excited as I was that finally we were able to meet and do her session. The more Paloma and I talked the more I found myself in love with her personality and who she is as person. When I meet Charlie it seemed very clear why he fell in love with Paloma. There chemistry and something I want people to know that they are the most humble and down to earth people. I honestly didn't want our session to end because I was having so much fun hanging out with them. I am so thankful I got to be part of their life even if it was for a couple hours. 

Paloma + Charlie thank you so much for trusting me and allowing me to show the world. I hope nothing but the best for you guys! This isn't the last time I will be seeing you guys. I consider you guys family! I can't wait until the next time we meet again!

| Crystal + Daniel | Life is Good Journey to the Altar | Westlake, California

Crystal + Daniel Wedding Day

It's crazy how the world or faith sometimes works in our lives. When I started my business 3 years ago Crystal told me " you are going to be my wedding photographer" I honestly didn't believe her. I had just started and weddings wasn't my thing. Crystal and I went to high school together which made things better. Fast forward to last year when she finally messaged me and told me she was getting married and she wanted me to be her photographer. I was BEYOND excited because she had kept her word and I couldn't help but feel blessed to have someone that saw me start from the bottom and believe in me. After talking and getting to know Crystal on a personal level, I fell in love with her love story and who she is as person. Then I finally found out who the lucky guy was and its was Daniel. Oh man! Faith again brought me back to a very old friend. Daniel knew me when since I was 10 years old. We stayed friends all through middle school until I moved and he went to high school. After that I had lost contact with Daniel and thought to myself I am never going to see him again. But here we are again, I was able to share his special day with his very special and beautiful bride. 

I couldn't be happier and feel more blessed to have been there for Crystal and Daniel, and give them photographs that they will be able to look at for years to come. It amazes me how life and faith have a way on bringing old friends and new ones together again!

Crystal and Daniel I wish you both nothing but the best, because you both deserve nothing than happiness and love. I know Daniel you'll love Crystal how she deserves and she will do the same for you. I am thankful to be able to call you guys not just friends, but family! I love you both! Can't wait to capture more special moments for you guys!

Kacy + Rolanda

I am out of words to say with this beautiful couple. When I met them during the Tallahassee Wedding Tour, I automatically fell in love withe them! It was an instant connection & love I felt for them. I knew in my heart that I needed to have a session with them. I got very lucky because they won the raffle I had & I was beyond excited to plan their session. Like any of my other sessions this meant a lot because the simple fact that God put me in their path to be part of something. Kacy & Rolanda are an amazing couple & super fun. Their age is just a number because after having two kids that are grown up, the love they have for each other is INDESCRIBABLE! You can sense & see the love Kacy has for Rolanda & vice verse. After spending my afternoon with them I felt as they were part of my family or more like I fit in their little family! I am beyond thankful that I our path crossed & I get to be part of their big day & give them memories their kids will look back & remember forever!

Kacy & Rolanda thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to make memories your kids can look back at when they are older & they can show their kids. Also for coming into my life & being amazing rode models as to what I want my marriage to be like when I get to where you guys are! I can't wait to see where the future takes us especially because I know our friendship will be for life!!! Love you guys!

Jerry + Therline

I met Therline at church through our sweet friend Wanda. Both of then became my first friend here in Tallahassee, FL. When I found out Therline was engaged I immediately knew I wanted to do her engagement session & thats exactly what happened. I already loved Therline so when I met Jerry, I knew he would be a big sweetheart. They are both so perfect for each other & the best part is that they meet through the church. A bond that God knew would last forever.  Their session was so much fun & full of laughter. Therline & Jerry compliment each other in so many ways it was just amazing being able to capture this chapter in their lives! I can't wait for their wedding day this August & be able to be a part of it!

Therline & Jerry thank you so much for allowing me to capture this beautiful moment in your guys lives! I am blessed to have you both as friends. I know God has amazing plans for you both.

| A engagement full of beauty and simplicity |

Haley + Kyle

I feel luckier every time I get to work with a new couple. They are the most amazing people in the whole world. The best part is I get to brag about them all the time & I am thankful for choosing me to be there third-wheel on their wedding day! It a blessing to add another couple to my tribe of people that mean the world to me.

Kyle emailed me back in February after my name was sent from another photographer that wasn't able to work with them. I am so thankful they choose me! I did the happy dance that night he told me they wanted me to be their photographer for their wedding. When we finally met in the in-person consultation I was happier because they are the sweetest couple ever & the simple fact that Haley is GORG-EOUS!!!  I mean Kyle is a very lucky man, don't you think?!?!? 

I cannot wait for their wedding this month! Thank you so much again Haley & Kyle for choosing me & letting me your third-wheel for your wedding day!
