Making the simple complicated is commonplace;

making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.

Charles Mingus


I haven’t shot many family portraits although I love to do so. I take them on as I would approach a wedding; trying to find beauty in fleeting moments. I imagine the kind of photos I would like to see on my walls thirty years from now. What do you see?  Matching outfits and completely posed compositions? Or authentic, raw, beautifully un-orchastrated life?

Jaedyn & Scott. married. Venice, Florida

I am so blessed.

Here I am in Florida, surrounded by my closest friends and visiting my mom and pops and on top of it I was given the opportunity to shoot one of my closest friend’s wedding. Wow.

I had a moment tonight, while I was editing photos and putting together this blog post. That moment where you step back and slow down the whirlwind that tends to take over – that makes our lives feel so busy. This year has already been one of the best of my life. I feel like my business is right where I want it to be and I am excited to see it grow more. I’ve seen some of my closest friends marry the men of their dreams. I have met some of the sweetest angels that happen to be my friend’s children. I am going to marry the man of my dreams in 7 months.

Seriously, wow. 

There isn’t much I can say about Scott and Jaedyn’s day that would do it justice. That’s probably why this blog post contains over a hundred photos. My words can do  it no justice. It was a beautiful day. It was filled with love. I was surrounded by people that I love taking pictures on one of the most important days in my friend’s life.

Seriously, wow.
