Richard & Bryce are two of the sweetest, smartest and as Instagram knows… good looking humans around. But well beyond their attributes apart together they are a power couple and the way they look at each other makes anyone nearby get all mushy! The pair live in Chicago but managed to plan all the incredible details for their Winter Park Racquet Club wedding from afar. The day included beautiful floral signage, matching tuxes, a fabulous Mr. & Mr. cake, tears, laughter and the party of the century. Did I mention that said party got kicked off with drag queen extraordinaire Mr. Ms. Adrien?! Check out all the fun below!Read More›
This day last year I was in France at day two of a Sue Bryce workshop. For those of you who don’t know who she is, she’s one of the photography gods known around the world for her women’s portraiture. She grew an empire based on providing women the strength and knowledge that they deserve to be professionally photographed more than just twice in a lifetime (wedding/baby). To know they’re just as beautiful at 55 as they are at 25 and that taking a day for yourself to create a piece of your history is beyond words worth it.
I had never done a workshop before but in my head it was a pilgrimage. A trip to the last place I’d visited with my mom. We had left France short during her cancer battle and I needed to finish that journey. I could think of no better way than to re-write the end of that story with a french chateau of artists letting their hearts lead them. It felt almost Renaissance-esk. From Sue’s warm inviting smile to the styling throughout the entire estate, no moment or teaching opportunity was overlooked. I definitely laughed, I definitely grew as an artist, I petted Sue’s dog more than what is probably appropriate and I may or may not have teared up like a baby on the last day. Here’s a quick peek at what the experience looked like:
Todd & Alison had love at first mile meeting on a small quiet water side road near their home while on a morning run. We actually went to the exact place they met and explored the area while breaking a little sweat. Check out their entire running engagement session below!Read More›
As often as possible I volunteer at to photograph animals at the shelter in hopes to get them more attention and potential home sweet homes!! Here is this weeks gorgeous batch of adoptable fur kids at the Orange County Animal Services. The animals below are currently available (January 2017) and their cage numbers are listed below them.
Well 2016 is over and looking back we had one heck of a year. It included 35 weddings photographed and 23 weddings filmed for our Lemus duo. We had a melting pot of clients including Korean, Indian and gay (this was our favorite thing that evolved this year). We traveled for work or play to Paris, Vegas, Colorado, Chicago, Mexico, Croatia, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, St Thomas, Italy and Slovenia. Cat changed her hair color 10 times, Mike shaved his beard once and the dogs acquired 4 new seasonal costumes.
Here’s a look back at some of our fav imagery of 2016 and loving the excitement it creates for 2017!!Read More›
It’s always an honor to be chosen by fellow artists to be their wedding day photographer and this is no absolutely exception. Brandon & Rose run a photo and video company on the west coast of Florida (check them out HERE) and do a fabulous job so having them as clients I knew we’d have a good time! Rose requested an engagement location that didn’t look like Florida and thankfully having been a cyclist at one point I just knew where we had to venture to. I put on my explorer hat the week before the session and went in search for new territory. What we found was AMAZING and you can see how we accomplished a non-Florida feel with their Clermont engagement session!Read More›
Last week we had the honor of being invited to the Solutions Bridal fashion show. It was an absolutely stunning event and a great time seeing a lot of our vendor friends. We arrived a little tardy because of an earlier event but I was able to capture some of the amazing gowns they presented, while trying not to swoon too hard of course. HUGE thanks to everyone who had a hand in creating the event, it was magnificent. I’m also excited to see what the other photographers & video produce… already seeing some of the work and it’s epically fun seeing how everyone creates different art from the same canvas. Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the night!Read More›
Armando & Allison sealed their marriage vows in the oldest city in America this past September in stylish fashion. St. Augustine’s cobblestone streets and Spanish-Florida charm set the scene for this classic couple. From the majestic hall of Cathedral Basilica to the coquina ramparts of the Castillo de San Marcos, Armando and Allison captured their first moments in epic fashion around the city. The formal affair culminated at The Treasury on the Plaza among family and friends. Armando wooed us all with his saxophone and Allison dazzled us with her singing in a celebration of their future together. Capturing their big day was an honor and a pleasure, especially at so many delightful locations around St. Augustine.Read More›
