Stefanie & Zack are engaged! {St Augustine Engagement Photographer}

Spending the afternoon with a great couple walking around Flagler CollegeHistoric St Augustine, and along the water by the Bridge of Lions {where the Lions were just returned to the bridge!} is not a bad way to spend an afternoon! It was such a fun afternoon and we got some great pictures along the way! Enjoy your sneak peak!

Wedding Cake…..YUM! Kakes by Katie {St Augustine & Jacksonville Wedding Photographer}

Who loves wedding cake? ME! I do, I lllloooovvvveeee wedding cake! It’s one of the focal points during your reception and one of the most fun things to pick out during the wedding. At least according to most of the grooms! {They truly do not appreciate how fun it can be picking out flowers, dresses, or napkins.}

In all seriousness, it can be a daunting task picking out a cake for your wedding that pleases you {the couple} and all of your guests. If you’re in the Northeast Florida area, you must, must meet with Kakes by Katie. Not only are the cakes she create beautiful to look at, which is a huge accomplishment in itself, but they taste amazing! I know because she let me try some. It’s almost impossible to pick my favorite out of the ones I tried {white chocolate, red velvet, strawberry, devil’s food, and french vanilla pound cake}, so I’m not even going to try.

Kakes by Katie provides custom cakes for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, bridal and baby showers, and more. She will be at the Queen’s Harbour Bridal Extravaganza on February 24 if you’re in the area!


2+1= soon to be 3 {St Augustine|Jacksonville Photographer}

This session is one of two Operation Love Reunited sessions I did last week. This one is pretty special because they are expecting a new addition in just a few months! I can’t wait until this family is back together, thanks Mr. O for all you do.

 


Fun, Fun, Fun… {St Augustine Photographer}

I love sessions where I laugh with the family I am photographing; I love leaving knowing I’ve made new friendships; I love knowing that I caught some awesome moments and great, natural smiles, and looks. Just like this session. We had fun and this family is so amazing together. You can tell how much they love each other and how much fun they have together. And you must check out  Ten 23 Designs, because this family owns it and does all the design work. They do a fantastic job!

 


The Sanchez House {Saint Augustine Wedding Photographer}

 

I have been meeting some local St Augustine wedding vendors and last week I was able to check out the Sanchez House. It so such a neat place! The house was built in 1791 and has a lot of the houses original materials. It also has these AMAZING windows in the front that bring in lots of sunlight. The windows are just begging to showcase a wedding dress and all the accessories that go along with it. The garden, courtyard, and porch are perfect for lanterns and lights in the trees, cocktails being passed around…..so many possibilities with this venue! I’m so glad I was able to spend a little time there.


Just in time for Christmas {Jacksonville Photographer}

A recent Operation Love Reunited session….. It was freezing, windy, sort of misty, and the arrival time changed at the last minute. So it was a little stressful for the family feeling like they could possibly miss the day they had been waiting for for more than seven months. Lucky for us, we didn’t miss it. Even if I had only gotten one picture of their son reunited with his daddy, all of the above stress would have been more than 1000 times worth it. I can’t really put into words my thoughts about this experience, so I’ll just let the pictures do the talking!

 


Renaissance Resort World Golf Village {Saint Augustine Wedding Photographer}

Have you ever stayed at or been to an event at the Renaissance Resort World Golf Village in St Augustine? We live literally right down the street from the resort so I had to go explore. There is so much to do right at the Renaissance Resort: Golf Hall of Fame,  IMAX Theater, the Spa Laterra {that sounds so nice right now! hint to my husband for my Christmas present!} and of course GOLF!

I was really lucky to be able to do the resorts holiday cards this year and I was able to meet almost all of their sales team. They are fantastic! I can definitely see why the Renaissance Resort is such a popular spot for weddings, corporate and community events, as well as a top choice for visitors to the area. I’m looking forward to working with them again after the holidays!
