I love destination weddings and I especially love hearing why a couple chose their particular destination. For Ari and Ryan, the decision was a simple one when planning their Pippin Hill Farms Wedding in Virginia. To begin, Ari and Ryan met at a bar in Norfolk,...
Jacksonville Engagement Pictures for Alyssa & Jeremy
Jacksonville has had a bit of a rough weather patch for the last month or so – and it’s been wreaking havoc on my photo sessions. I’m starting to think that North Florida missed the memo that spring was a few months ago! However, the weather has finally decided to give us a break just in time for Alyssa and Jeremy’s engagement session.
If you’ve known me for any length of time you know that I love people who are genuine and in touch with their nerdy side. I knew that Alyssa and Jeremy definitely fit the bill when they told me they wanted to incorporate their dogs Kreacher and Dobby into their engagement session. Umm, hello?! Give me Harry Potter fans and dog people every day of the week! It’s always interesting when we incorporate dogs into engagement pictures because you never know how they’re going to behave. I’ve had some really interesting experiences trying to contain dogs and still get great photos of my engaged couples. However, Kreacher and Dobby were total pros! It must be the house elf in them but they did such a great job and even posed for me beautifully. Just look at their gorgeous coats!
Alyssa and Jeremy were also total pros, pulling off a dip kiss not once but twice for me. Believe it or not, the dip is harder than it looks, especially when you’re doing it for the camera. We decided to have the engagement session at one of my second studios 😉 . Hannah Park is absolutely gorgeous around sunset with its lush greenery that butts right up against sand dunes, sugary beaches, and the ocean. It’s a great way to incorporate a lot of variety in the location of your engagement pictures without needing to spend a lot of time moving from one area to the next. The sunset beach photos are some of my favorites. Alyssa and Jeremy were giving off this incredibly romantic vibe that fit the setting sun background beautifully.
I can’t wait to see Alyssa and Jeremy next year in March for their wedding at Diamond D Ranch. Thank you again for choosing me!!!

I'm so thankful to know a few NFL players and their families. I met Abry Jones briefly at a Jaguars practice when I shot a few pics of he and his then girlfriend Kate. If you hadn't heard of Abry Jones yet, tune in this season to the new and improved Jacksonville...
