F just pulled off the ultimate swoon-worthy move! Picture this: F and V, after getting their pups out of the truck, stroll into the nature trail with their adorable new fur ball (who V had gone to pick up that week in New York), all excited for their photoshoot to showcase the newest addition to their family. Little did V know, F had a sneaky plan up his sleeve. As they stood back to back with the pups, Forest dropped down on one knee and popped the big question! Cue the happy tears and the “OMG, is this for real?!” expressions. After the “yes” and a gazillion happy hugs and kisses, we headed to the beach just as the sky was turning that magical shades of blues, pinks and oranges. Running around hand in hand, we celebrated against the backdrop of the ocean and the sky before they headed off to dinner with friends that were awaiting to congratulate them!

Year 2 celebrating J + E’s wedding anniversary! It is such an honor to capture milestones in couples relationships, even more so of to be trusted to do it year after year.
The tradition of anniversary photos started when E reached out in the summer of 2021 before they came down on vacation to celebrate their marriage. We did their photos on the beach and they cheered Corona beers to their first year (they got married during the pandemic so it was only fitting!!).

As the golden hour approached, casting its ethereal glow on Okaloosa Island, C and F stepped onto the sandy shores hand in hand. With the ocean breeze tousling their hair and the waves whispering sweet melodies, they were enveloped in an atmosphere that seemed to exist only for them.

As the fall breeze finally swept through, C, A + I spent time on the quiet beaches of Destin running around and exploring. Their journey began when they encountered each other at an out-of-state church weekend some years ago.

Getting to spend time with couples prior to their wedding is special and with J + B it was no different. I felt like we were old friends, chatting about our pets, travel (their favorite place so far is Aruba!) and all the food recs!
J + B met back in 2013 online and have been inseparable ever since. They easily have one of my favorite proposal stories to date!

A sunset beach session in Destin is an amazing experience for any couple and it was so incredible to get to experience it with S + P (two good friends of mine!). They moved to the area about a year ago with P’s new job. Then I connected with S on Facebook and we have been friends ever sense!

When it comes to engagement photos, everyone wants to capture their moment in a special way. For C + E, they knew that the perfect way to capture this chapter was to include their four-legged family member, B.

It was such an incredible evening with T and J as we celebrated their engagement with a stunning sunset session in west Destin! It was also the perfect time for us all to get to know each other better before their fall wedding at Eden Gardens State Park.

Once again getting to celebrate friends milestones is always a joy! M and I went to high school and college together. It is neat having friends from where I grew up here in Florida (even if for just a short time!). When I found out that C + M were moving down to the Florida panhandle I was ecstatic! As I have gotten to know C, it is obvious how well these two fit together and the love they have for the other.

My last session of the year and it was the perfect way to close out 2022!! I met V through a another couple who I worked with earlier this year when I photographed her and her husband (and their pup!!).
As usual for Florida, we had to keep an eye on the weather throughout the day due to expected rain showers and thunderstorms, but as the % dropped we decided to push through and boy oh boy am I glad we did! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful evening with a stunning sunset. It may have been a little windy, but I love the movement it brought to the photos!
