Engagement & Proposal

Kim + EJ | Engagement Session

Words can’t even describe how happy I am for my sweet friend Kim! A few years ago God crossed our paths as cheerleading coaches. We coached a varsity cheer team for three years together. She is opposite from me in so many ways which made the perfect balance! I was the ying and she was my yang. She was positive and I tended to “keep it real” more often than not. She is full of grace and I brought the “justice”. She was the encourager and I was the pusher. But a few things we did have in common was that we loved our teams and we both wanted her to find the man of her dreams!

Dating is so stinkin’ hard these days – can I get an amen?! Kim is an amazing woman! She is full of life, so positive, energetic, has a great sense of humor, and believes the best in people. I knew it would take an incredible man to win her heart and appreciate everything she has to offer.

When I met EJ I instantly knew that he was the one we hoped and prayed for! Not only does he appreciate her silly personality, but he encourages it and plays right along with her. He’s kind and encouraging and the perfect person to take care of one of my sweetest friends!

Enjoy this preview from their engagement session! Their wedding is only a few weeks away so you’ll be seeing them again soon!

Congrats Kim and EJ! We love you guys!

Engagement & Proposal

Crystal + Matthew

You guys have to meet Crystal and Matthew! This fun loving couple is from the beautiful state of New York. Life opened doors for both of them to come down to Florida and boy am I glad it did. Not only have I met new beautiful clients, but new friends! They are both so much fun to be around, kind, hilarious, and so loving towards each other!

It was a beautiful morning that allowed us the time to capture their love and excitement! Matthew proposed on their five year dating anniversary and I can’t wait to celebrate their new wedding anniversary at the stunning Cypress Grove Estates!

Crystal and Matthew, thank you so much for letting me come alongside your relationship and capture this beautiful season! I can’t wait to meet all your family and party with you guys… because I know with you two, it’s going to be a party!!

Wedding

Tucker + Alana

Have you ever known two individuals and when they got together you’re immediate thought was, “yep. that’s that!”? That’s these two!

I knew Tucker and Alana as young singles pursuing the Lord and their careers on their own. I wish I could take credit for orchestrating a blind date or whispering words of encouragement to them to date one another, but truthfully I was just a spectator of this love story, and I believe it was one of the best seats to have! As soon as I saw them together I remember telling my husband that anyone who ever wanted to date them just missed out. These two were officially off the market! A few months later at a friends wedding I asked Tucker what he was waiting on! Though I was mostly serious, I was joking a little as I know there’s always a perfect timing for these sort of things. After about a year of waiting for Tucker to pop the question, I finally heard the good news! He asked, and she said yes! I was so happy for both of them. I watched them grow in every way even more with one another, and I knew they would make the best life partner for each other!

Fast forward to a few weeks from their proposal, you can imagine how ecstatic I was when they asked me to be their wedding photographer! Not only were they a beautiful couple and knew their wedding day would be too, but this was a love story I fully believed in, and now in every way I was getting to come alongside them and help them celebrate! I was put in a position to gift them with the only piece of their special day that will last forever. It was truly an honor and a privilege and a day I’ll never forget!

So here’s a little flashback Friday post for you to peruse through. I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I enjoyed capturing them!

xoxo
