I'm an Orlando maternity and family photographer. I want to capture the important moments in your life. Fleeting moments of growth and change.
Please, grab a cup of tea and enjoy exploring my recent work and personal musings!
There was a cold breeze in the air as I walked in to Bella Collina that crisp, winter afternoon. The vendors were setting up the for this classic, Bella Collina, Outdoor Wedding. Fresh florals from Jason’s Creations Design Studio were everywhere! Center pieces were being created. The ceremony trellis was being adorned with greenery. And, bouquets were in hand. It was certainly magical watching this Tuscan inspired shoot come together!
Heather from, Heather Benge Events, planned this entire wedding shoot and I had heart eyes the ENTIRE time! There were so many custom pieces created this day— the wooden pergola, geometric trellis, and even the sexy dress was one of a kind! To top it off, the florals and greenery added the perfect amount of timelessness and elegance!
If you’re looking for a piece of Italy in Florida, THIS is your spot. From the architecture to the landscaping, and even to the location on top of a hill, Bella Collina is the perfect outdoor wedding venue! I can take photos of this venue ALL day long. Seriously, every corner you turn, there’s another beautiful spot for a photo. Your guests will be RAVING about your wedding!
Ocean Hawks Rentals did an amazing job with all the furniture, tablescape and wooden pieces. I still cannot get over the geometric trellis for the outdoor ceremony. And, the pergola for the reception was perfection! Of course, it wouldn’t have been as beautiful without the help of Jason’s Creations Design Studio and Pine and Petal Wedding’s floral design!
Hannah Marie Calligraphy killed it with this custom stationary set! Just look at the envelope liners with the hand drawn photo of Bella Collina!!!
When it comes to dress designers, Jaye Applewaite, is AAAAMAZING. His custom dresses for this shoot were breathtaking. If you think the dress looks gorgeous in photos, it was even MORE stunning in real life! The low back and plunging neckline [all of the heart eyes]!!!!
And, we can’t forget how Sunkissed and Made-up made Rachel flawwwwless and Etoile Fine Jewelry finished the look with their timeless hairpieces.
