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!

It was so wonderful to get some with D + C during their wedding planning trip to Florida! We were able to sneak in some time in Rosemary Beach for their engagement session. With Espresso martini’s being part of their love language so it was only fitting to make a pit stop at The Pearl’s bar before eventually making our way out to the beach where we were met with the most beautiful sunset and breeze!

Summer evenings in Laguna Beach, Florida are SO special – especially for the couples who love to hit the waves (with boards or their bodies)!
Surfing and swimming together in the warm, summer water is an escape from the pesky humidity that hangs around the area especially this time of year. M + A love the peacefulness that the sound of waves provide and cherish the moments spent together in the muted evening light.

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!

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.

Imagine a date night with your person that includes a vintage car, a sunset view from Malibu cliffs, and beautiful florals! That is what C + S did on a Wednesday night in February. It is nice and sometimes necessary to take a break in the chaos of life and work to reconnect and breathe. After finding the perfect pull off, with views facing the west, we hoped out of the car to experience the quite up there. My favorite part of this evening was that after the sun had set and blue hour was upon us, we turned on the headlights for C + S to dance to their favorite song as the last of the light left us.

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!

When K reached out to me about getting photos done before S deployed I knew it was important to get them in. As a military partner myself, I knew just how important having these photos were for K. They are something to hold on to in the months that he is gone.
