Reema and Jonathan Engagement in D.C.

Kristen and I had the pleasure of meeting up with Reema and Jonathan in Washington D.C. to shoot their engagement session in April!!

Reema, a super talented lifestyle + food + travel photographer used to work for Kristen while she was going to school here in Florida. She met Jonathan as a student at UCF during that time, too! Double win. We were already going to be in New York for Bridal Week in April so we could just take a train over to Washington D.C. (Kristen's first train ride in the US!) for a visit and shoot their engagement session. Then, BOOM: magic happened! Awesome couple, in their awesome apartment and we can't forget about Mooch!! (their adorable fur child) who, lets face it, stole the show ;) We walked around DC shooting against the prettiest backgrounds and we lucked out with perfect lighting. When their session concluded we were introduced to the best pasta joint (so good that you didn't want to have leftovers), the Red Hen!

Since Kristen and Anthony will be guests at their wedding, I'll be photographing their Indian-Western fusion wedding day! I'm secretly hoping they find a way to smuggle Mooch back for it, too!

Lisa and Jeffrey RV Park session

Jeffrey and Lisa are dear friends of ours in the wedding industry, she a fabulous wedding planner and he a phenomenal wedding videographer. We met them at their home away from home with their sweet fur kid, Andy. We were obsessed with the idea of having their session in an RV park and loved the results. We walked around the park with Andy getting some fresh air, stopping at a swing set and finishing at their campsite. It was a perfect evening finished off with dinner that Jeffrey and Lisa graciously prepared for us. We loved this shoot so much and spending time with sweet friends of ours not working a wedding. ;) 

Gabe and Erickson Downtown Orlando Adventure Session

The half-day adventure session was made for a couple like Gabe and Erickson. I loved hanging out with them at all of their favorites places around Orlando. I met up with them at the Black Bean Deli in Orlando to eat lunch and talk about the session itself and figure out where we were going to go.

The Black Bean Deli was a perfect place to fill our stomachs and take amazing pictures. This little cafΓ© had such a fun hipster vibe with amazing sandwiches and the aroma of coffee in the air. The white walls and adorable plants on the back wall were the perfect backdrop for Gabe and Erickson, who eat here often. I wanted to capture them as they were in places that were just them.

Right outside the restaurant was this fun purple-ish pink wall that was a great backdrop to get some photos of the two of them that really make them stand out.
We then walked the streets of downtown Orlando just stopping at places that were just fun and would make great photos because that was Gabe and Erickson. After stopping at some great places and walking around we decided to hit up the East End Market.

This place was so fun, I was drawn to all the beautiful plants outside that you could actually purchase and then inside were booths where you could buy amazing food, drinks and fun little knick-knacks. Gabe and Erickson love coming to this place to hang out on the weekends. We then walked across the street to the Stardust video and coffee shop that was a funky, fun place where we sat and grabbed some water and took a few photos.

It was a little hot out in the afternoon and we spotted an ice cream shop to sit and take another little break and chill out and talk about how the session was going. We were also waiting for the sun to go down a little bit so we could capture some great photos of the two of them out in a field. We did some fun urban/city photos and we wanted to switch it up for some pretty outdoor photos with the sun setting behind them.

We actually headed back to the KWP studio to do an outfit change and head over to a field where I knew there was some tall grass. I just wanted to capture them as they were in their relationship, just some fun, lovey photos. The light was incredible and I got some amazing photos to finish the session.

Gabe and Erickson are such a sweet couple and I loved hanging out with them and going to all their favorite places. I got to capture the two of them doing what they love together, it was cool to see their relationship in a half day adventure shoot.

Lexie and Rachael :: KWP Interns 2017

I told Lexie and Rachael that we were taking pictures of them for their internship blog post Monday and they both show up pretty much wearing the same thing. That’s how our interns were this semester, pretty much two peas in a pod not to mention that they are both wearing green. UCF students by morning, KWP interns by afternoon, we loved getting to know Lexie and Rachael. They are such sweet girls with a great sense of humor and we had the best time with both of them. Including the time when we fostered puppies for a week, the KWP Christmas party and they both show up wearing adult onesies, they made the office fun.

They just finished up their big internship project, a beautiful styled shoot they both conceptualized and executed and it turned out amazing. We will miss their bright fun personalities but miss them nothing but the best on their future endeavors.
