Thank you so much for visiting my journal! Here you will find my most recent weddings and sessions to see what I have been up to lately! New posts may be few and far between but I am thrilled to share my most current works with you when I can!
On June 17th, 2017 Kristen and Hunter Floyd tied the knot at the Winter Park Farmers Market in Orlando, Florida. It was a beautiful day filled with their closest family and friends, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Their style as a couple, and their love story, was told through their decor and colors of navy and yellow. But, to truly understand their story, let me take you back to when I first met these two amazing people.
The day that Kristen and I first met was almost two years ago at a fundraiser for a local young man who had lost his life in a car accident. We were both running little booths of our own to promote our products and businesses and she came up to go through my photography albums. I knew this girl was a true home town girl, her accent, and her perfect southern attitude immediately made me love her! Our first session together was when I met Hunter. Kristen had hired me to photograph her family for the holidays, at that time I was able to met her mother, grandmother, and grandfather. It was an absolutely amazing session and full of fun and laughter, and I had a feeling then that we would be meeting again soon.
Hunter proposed to Kristen in a Sunflower field in Brooksville, Florida. It was a feat planning our strategy to surprise this beautiful girl with the images of their proposal. I was hidden behind a big oak tree, other people were wandering around the farm, and I was frantically texting Hunter to send him photos of exactly what I wanted him to do for the best possible angle. Well, needless to say, Kristen, through tears of joy, said “YES!”, and the wedding planning began!
Let me pause for a second on their love story to show you this image… I cry when I see this.
This image is Kristen’s pure emotions when she walked out of her room and into the area where her bridesmaids were waiting to see her for the very first time. I will never forget their reactions and the way that Kristen absolutely lost it as they praised her from head to toe. It was an experience that I will never forget as a photographer.
After their proposal, I surprised Kristen with the images, and the rest was history. Since then I have done photos for their business together as a couple, their engagement photos, headshots for this beauty, and finally I have also been a mentor to this little budding photographer! We have done some amazing work together, and I cannot wait to see where her work takes her from here. I love being able to be such amazing friends with my clients, and these two are definitely some of my closest!
