Congratulations Greg and Sarah!

Greg and Sarah are seriously one of the most laid-back couples that I have ever worked with. But they are also a lot of fun, and completely in love :) Not to mention that they have great taste - they chose some amazing vendors for their wedding!

Flowers: Amanda's Florist
Cake: Oleander Bakery
Music: DJ Shane
Catering: Renaissance Catering
Ceremony: Port St. John First United Methodist Church
Reception: Cocoa Civic Center

It takes a lot of help to get a bride ready!

A few days before the wedding I was going over some last-minute details with Sarah on the phone, and she nonchalantly said "Oh, I saw in the church's paperwork that they don't allow any photography during the service, after the processional." At first, I thought she was joking. Then, I thought maybe she meant that I couldn't use flash, or that I couldn't move around. But no - she really meant that there was no photography allowed during the service! As soon as I arrived at the church, the pastor confirmed the rule. But I was determined to somehow get some pictures.. fortunately the door at the back had a window in it, so I stood outside and shot the entire ceremony through the window! This was my vantage point:

But with a zoom lens, I was able to get shots like this:

Then we headed over for the reception.

I LOVE this shot from their first dance:

And the look on Sarah's Dad's face.

It was a great party!

Congratulations you two! And thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.

Keith, Leslie, and Tori

Just before Christmas I met up with this adorable family to get some photos. They are originally from Kentucky, but Keith is stationed here with the Military. Because they aren't "Floridians", they wanted an "un-Florida" location for the shots (as in, not at the beach!). It was fun to shoot somewhere a little different! And isn't little Tori just about the cutest little girl you've ever seen?

She is definitely a princess...

But she is still a little girl!

I think this is one of my favorites from the day.

Once she laid eyes on the playground, we were given no choice but to let her play. And what little kid doesn't like to swing?

Love the pure joy :)

Ok, here's another favorite!

Keith and Leslie, you have a beautiful little family and it was an honor to work with you!

Greg, Jen, Evan, and (almost) Baby

Recently Jen contacted me about setting up a combination family/maternity session. I was excited to see them again after doing their Christmas photos last year, especially since their family was about to grow! Jen had put a lot of thought into her photos, and wanted to go with a more "nautical" theme - And I love it!

Little Evan has really grown. I think this little guy is one of the most expressive little kids I have ever seen - what a cutey!

After shooting over by the boats, we headed over to Greg's favorite place: the golf course!

And I am excited to announce the arrival of little Tyler just a few days ago! Congratulations to you all!
