Last week we posted one of our Best Of picks of an engagement surprise at the St. Augustine Lighthouse.
Today I got to be part of another covert operation that was even sneakier than the last. Andres called us up about 2 months ago with a grand plan to ask Danielle to marry him at sunrise at the top of The St. Augustine Lighthouse. With the clever ruse of being a magazine photographer, I photographed Andres down on one knee asking Danielle the big question as the sun rose over the Atlantic. Through tears and joy radiating from her, she said YES! And then proceeded to be shocked how many people were able to keep the big secret.
Congrats to Andres and Danielle! We wish you absolute happiness!
In honor of Kate’s birthday today we had to show another birthday girl who stole our hearts during her First Year session in the studio. You might have seen Grace shortly after this shot devouring a squishy cake on Facebook. We wanted to share her birthday joy that came out when a bucket of balloons was placed in front of her. Can you hear her squeals?! Yep, Best Birthday Girl written all over it!
This photo was on our Facebook page for awhile this spring because we are suckers for dogs at weddings! They did a great job during the ceremony and loved having their picture taken.
Dan called me to be a part of his surprise when he popped the question to his girlfriend Annika at the top of the St. Augustine Lighthouse. You might have seen our sneak peek a couple of days after it happened on Facebook when the pair wanted to finally announce it to the world after telling their families. But it was fun for a couple of days being in on their secret!
Robb lived up to leading-man status as he pulled his new wife Lisa into a first kiss that blew away any RomCom-ish Hollywood first kiss. So sweet!
Gary kept his lovely wife of 5 years in stitches during our session. Laughter clearly is the secret to happiness!
This hipster kiddo wanted me to make sure his hair looked good. Looks perfect!
This ring bearer rocked the house and gave a mighty Footloose-worthy performance!

On April 20th we were part of a swinging good time at Crystal and John’s River House wedding. The day turned up a bit chilly (odd for Florida!) which changed their outdoor ceremony into a cozy inside ceremony, officiated by one of their close friends. Crystal and John both have a huge extended family which were excellent sports about braving the slight chill outside for family photos. Their bridal party was incredibly fun and kept the party going on the dance floor. When it came time to cut the cake there was some discussion between them whether they were going to be “nice” or “go for it.” You can see who won! Congrats you two! So glad to be part of your day!
We were honored to be a part of Elizabeth & Aaron intimate ceremony at the beautiful Castle Ottis in Vilano Beach, Florida. This magical landmark was built in the 1980’s and said to be created to designate a “place of peace upon this earth.” Elizabeth descended gracefully down a majestic spiral staircase to be escorted to her future husband, Aaron. Surrounded by candle light and loved ones, the two tied the knot! Following the ceremony and family photos, we hopped across the street to The Reef Restaurant for a sweet reception in their upstairs private dining room.
