The Brown Family /// Seattle Family Photographer

We’re currently in Seattle, Washington visiting Stephen’s sister, Alison, and her family. As a special treat, we shot some updated family photos of them and their Grammy, and at the end, we even jumped in a few shots with our adorable nephews and niece, who we adore so much.  Stephen and I cherish the closeness of family, and feel so blessed to share a special bond with this beautiful family, who we thankfully can remain close to through the great invention of Facetime, even on the other side of the country.  But every time we  get to visit with and stay with his sister and her family, we learn so much from Alison and Jason about how to be amazing parents, how to raise children who love others, and how keeping Christ at the foundation of their household is the glue that holds them all together. They set a beautiful example for us as we daydream about the future, and we only hope that one day, our children will be as amazing as their three children that we love being an Uncle and Aunt to.

Here’s a few of our favorites from the shoot!

I love these family photos!

Thank you for sharing your gift with us! We are blown away by the pictures and will cherish them. We love you both so much.

New portfolio site is now LIVE!

As you can see here on the blog, we’ve got a new look!  As Stephen and I’s photography style has evolved over the years, as well as moving into specializing more exclusively in photographing destination luxury weddings, we wanted to refresh our brand to better reflect the style of weddings we now specialize in.  With starting to shoot a lot in Miami, as well as other beautiful destinations, we wanted to incorporate a clean and simple high fashion feel to our site with more white like most of the boutique hotels are down in South Beach.  While we’ve stripped the hot pink background of this blog, we are still using my signature hot pink as a pop of color, but wanted our photographs to be the main source of color in the overall design.

Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it

@Brenda- Funny, you would have thought that UF would have caught up that before awarding me the Best Magazine Writer in the Journalism college. But I guess them Gators don’t know proper English. Yet another reason why Seminoles rule. wink wink :-)

There you go again—Stephen and I’s. I’s is not a word in the English language. It is Stephen and my …

The Gerhardstein Family // Jacksonville Family Photographer

When we moved into our new neighborhood, I had no idea we would be blessed with such amazing and gracious neighbors as we have been with Carl, Lisa, Daniel & Lauren.  Often times, without asking, I would hear a leaf blower in our yard, to peek out and see Carl blowing our leaves off the driveway for us.  And I can’t count the many times we’ve borrowed one home improvement tool after another from this family’s garage.  I like to think they feel sorry for Stephen and I as newlyweds trying to learn how to take care of a house, but what I see more importantly is how much they live out Jesus’s greatest command to love your neighbors as yourselves.  Everytime we walk in their house we see a huge framed photo from their last professional family session back in the 90s, and they finally agreed to let us give them some updated photos.  Even better, this time around we got to include their furry child, Maggie, as well.  Here’s a few of our favorites from their family session!

Emily & Mike are married! // Jacksonville Wedding Photographer

Emily and Mike’s wedding day reminded me of what their college days must have been like a few years ago.  Lots of goofing off, lots of crazy dancing, and doing the beloved hand chop to the Seminole football anthem.  ”The wedding was pretty much was like a normal Saturday night with our friends,” Mike said.  ”Um, a very expensive Saturday night,” Emily reminded him with a laugh.

Emily and Mike’s love story began at Ken’s bar in Tallahassee when both of them were attending Florida State University.  Their favorite place to hang out, they even made the groom’s cake into a replica Ken’s bar mug, but this time with their names on it.  With a romantic proposal down in Key West, their love story moved them to Jacksonville where they are now sharing life with their two pups.  Their wedding day was filled with lots of fun grey and yellow designs, and I loved the use of chevron and stripe touches that added to the overall decor.

Here’s some favorite photos from the day and the fabulous vendors we worked with.
