Erin and Laurie met over circus tickets and started dating after a year or so. Together they have five children (four teenage girls!), and were together for 5 years waiting for Florida to legalize same sex marriage before planning their wedding.

Nate and I were so honored to document their day. Erin and Laurie, we hope you enjoy your photos! :)

Sarah had just moved to Florida from Australia to begin her Walt Disney World College Program, and then. <3

All it took was one cast bus ride for Sarah and Colin to connect, a semester romance, and then Colin left his home in Florida to start a new life with Sarah in Australia. It only makes sense that these two tied the knot where it all began, Walt Disney World.

Sarah and Colin, thank you so much for letting us be a part of it all. :)

There are a million reasons I wasn’t thrilled to spend a week in the hospital this month, but one of the biggest was not being able to shoot with Nate for a handful of sessions (and two weddings, boo!)

But he totally stepped up to the plate and I’m so proud of what he did without me… If the situation was reversed, I’d cry! One of the sessions I was heartbroken to miss was Liam and Maddie’s. This is our gagillionth session with this family- Ok, maybe just the 6th or 7th, but these “Root Lifers” have such a special place in our hearts… I’ve gotten to see Liam grow! The photo on the left was from our first shoot with him, the one on the right was last year’s…

… And now he’s sooooo grown up! I can’t stand it.

This. Wedding. You. Guys.

I could gush about these two for days, and the truth is Nate and I had such a wonderful day photographing Jessica and Alicia that I was genuinely teary saying goodnight! Jessica and Alicia are two people who love each other so much it’s infectious. I know it’s cheesy, but it was impossible to be around either of them and not smile, or not know this was the best day of their life.

We’ve slowly but surely been playing catch up after a couple weeks out of the office, so these newlyweds have been waiting the longest for their preview photos but have been so incredibly patient. Jessica and Alicia, enjoy, and let’s do it again sometime, ok? :)
