Lisa and Eddie at Lover’s Key

As a creative, there are certain things that you may want to create, and sometimes you just have to find the right people to help your vision come alive. For me, these two have been there all along, so it really was a matter of timing. First and foremost, Eddie and Lisa are fondly referred to as our roomies. That’s right, we have known each other since college and subsequently I started dating my husband just a few months before Lisa and Eddie were “official.” Secondly, as soon as I saw Lisa’s bike that Eddie bought for her birthday, I knew we had to make a session happen. Furthermore, if you scroll all the way to the end, you will see other visions that just came to fruition. Like them being cool with laying in the surf and dancing in the water. As you can see, if you are willing to push the envelope just a little, you can create epic shots such as these.

Thank you two— we love you!

As we photographed Steven and Lauren’s wedding last Saturday, we kept hearing the same things from guests walking by: how happy these two are together. They married at Southern Fresh Farms, where everyone was made to feel like family. One could tell that they just wanted everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves, and that they did.

The girls had a wonderful bridal suite to get ready in. And the ceremony set-up was so sweet! 2018-07-03_00042018-07-03_0002Upon on the guys’ arrival, they had to pay a visit to the farm animals.

They stood for photos in the rain,  laughed, kissed and we were surrounded by happiness. 2018-07-03_00172018-07-03_00182018-07-03_00142018-07-03_00152018-07-03_00232018-07-03_0024
