Pure Beach Sweetness. Ana and Brandon are married.

Ana and Brandon

These two are very special and dear to my heart! Brandon is a good friend of my husband and actually introduced me to him in college. So I have him to thank for introducing me to my hubby! While Brandon was staying with us for spring break he met Ana at the beach and from that point on they were inseparable.  They are amazing together and have so much in common. For one thing, they are both health nuts and both carry around a jug of water ever day (including their wedding day). 🙂  Both Ana and Brandon played sports in college and I can’t wait to see how talented their children will be. Their wedding was full of beautiful and breathtaking moments and it was so amazing to be able to capture this day for them and I wish them both a lifetime of happiness!

A Southern Delight: Engagement Session

Jessica and Scott

Watercolor Resort and Rosemary Beach



Engagement sessions are always one of my favorite things to shoot, because the couple is always relaxed and you have more time to get to know the couple and learn how they fell in love.  From the first moment Scott met Jessica he was already sweeping her off her feet! (Literally) Jessica had twisted her ankle and Scott offered to carry her to the car and a love started to blossom.  It was such a treat to spend a few hours capturing their love and spending the day with them.  I would have to say that Scott is a man’s man, an avid outdoorsmen, and hunter, but when it comes to Jessica he is a true romantic. He proposed to his beautiful fiance by handing her a leather bound journal that on the pages read “Will you Marry Me?” and at the end of the book was Jessica’s Gorgeous Ring. They are getting married at Eden State Gardens and plan on having a beautiful reception at Bentley’s on the Bay! I personally can’t wait for their vintage inspired wedding!
