Cliff & Wendy

I met Cliff and Wendy today at a Condo where they had their first date for their Engagement Session. It was really really windy but we had a great time and Freckles (their cute puppy) stole the show. After that we headed over to Cypress Grove Estate house and we were all very thankful that it did not rain! I am so honored that I get to be a part of this very awesome couples special day...thank you and I hope you love your sneak peaks!

Laying in Bed......

So I am laying in bed on a very rainy Saturday afternoon with my foot up on 4 pillows......I broke my big toe! Thank goodness for Clay (hubby) who has taken really good care of me and the two kiddos for the past two days. The good news is I caught up on all my Tivo shows and my Netflix movies. I recommend "American Gangster" and "The Other Boleyn Girl" they were both really good. I am really looking forward to my Engagement Session tomorrow and I hope they don't mind me limping around. Just call me gimpy!

Part 4

I have gotten so many e-mails asking where this Trash the Dress session was taken. We were downtown Orlando basically just walking into little corners here and there. We actually found a fountain on Orange Ave and well... just jumped in. We were all very nervous that we were going to get kicked out but they were more interested in watching us then kicking us out. Here I was with jeans on with water up to knees and Katie in a full wedding dress! Needless to say we made a bit of a spectacle. Thank you again Jon and Katie for being so great and FEARLESS!TTD Set

Attention Brides!!

I'm looking for 3 models for an upcoming workshop here in Orlando. We'll be shooting some urban bridal portraits and a trash the dress.
Here is what we are looking for:

1) a past bride, with a gown, who's not afraid of getting it a bit dirty-

2)A past bride & groom, with a gown and suit/tux, who are not afraid of getting them a bit dirty

The dates of the workshop are as follows: Friday, September 12 - afternoon and evening and Saturday, September 13 - daytime (could be morning or afternoon, TBD)We're working on the details, but compensation will most likely come in terms of photographs from the shoot in exchange for your time. Please note that your attire will most likely get a bit dirty, which is why we're requesting past brides/couples. If you are interested please email me at

Wedding Poem

The best Wedding poem I have ever read was dedicated to the sister of the bride who passed away just before her wedding.

“This is for the ones whose hope is falling
And you no longer hear your savior’s calling.
This is for the ones whoes backs are turning
And that passion-filled heart you once had has stopped burning.
This is for the ones abandoned.
Now all alone with no solace
and you think you’re stranded.
This is for you empty, by life branded,
That had a vision that took leap, but it never landed.
This is for the ones who are plagued.
By those mysteries of life.
And you feel torn insideby this mind of spirit and strife.
This is for the ones whoes desire to do good is always outweighed
and you don’t do as you should.
This is for the ones who mistakes are too many to countand
the guilt on your chest just continues to mount.
This is for the ones who have been done wrong by sins.
At the corrupted hands of perverted men.

Hold on.HOLD ON!

Because soon will come the Celebration Wedding
and bundles of restoration will be our bedding.
Soon will come the Celebration Wedding
and bundles of restoration will be our bedding.
The trumpeter is taking a breath
The guests are taking their seats.
The Bride is putting on a veil.
The Father is making last-minute preparations.
There’s Thousands Times Ten Thous
and angels waiting in holy expectation.
The readied groom is readied.
Soon will come the Celebration Wedding
If you are hurting, your hurt will cease.
If you are restless, you will find peace.
If you are empty,
You will be filled.
All of these doubts, they’ll be stilled.
If life for you is just to trying,
Your tears will be dissipate.
There won’t be anymore crying.
If the only thing you know is shame, you will be cleansed
and never again feel the same.
If you can’t see straight.
And wait…
Soon will come the Celebration Wedding
and bundles of restoration will be our bedding.”
