Melbourne in-home and beach session with cats!

We met Courtney and Khoury completely by chance, but it has since turned in to a beautiful friendship! Courtney was the Maid of Honor in one of Kristen's past weddings, and responded to a casting call for a couple to model for a styled shoot we were hosting. After connecting on Facebook, Courtney was browsing through Kristen's albums - where she had shared some rescue kittens we were fostering in the studio. Smitten, Courtney convinced Khoury to adopt 2 - our special little Spock, and his brother Lando (at the time named Saltine and Wheat Thin - not our choice!)

Courtney and Khoury don't have many photo shoots together, so they had us come out to their beautiful home in Melbourne to photograph them with their new furbabies! They had a rescue dog named Mako, who has taken to his little brothers perfectly! This little family lives about a block from the beach and loves ocean-living. Their home is so adorable - decorated with vintage whimsy, unique art pieces and a comfortable, coastal vibe.

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. ;)
