This was our second-ever wedding at the Tarpon Lodge in Pineland, Florida. Located near Jimmy Buffet’s inspiration for “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” if palm trees and calming waters are your thing, this place really is paradise.

The forecast leading up to this wedding was not looking good. Like, we’re talking rain chances in the 90+ percentile. Adelie told me she asked her venue coordinator what the rain backup location was, and the coordinator just replied, “It’s not gonna rain.” When Adelie asked again, she got the same answer and decided not to push it. Sure enough, even though all of our weather sources were reporting 100% chances of rain for ceremony time, it didn’t rain.

The second they were pronounced man and wife, the sky turned a deep gray and we booked it with the couple to get some photos before the sky opened up. Adelie was an absolute dream bride, and even though thunder got increasingly loud, she stayed out for photos until it started pouring. We had an umbrella on hand and she got a little wet, but the photos we got were some of my favorite of the year! :)

Adelie and Will, you were both an absolute dream. Thanks for having us, and we wish you both the absolute best!!

Four or so years ago, we met Eve and Phil in downtown Nashville for their engagement session! We didn’t get to photograph their wedding because we were booked (the worst feeling ever), but I was over-the-moon excited when she inquired with us for a maternity session this year! This speech language pathologist and rocket scientist are going to have the coolest. baby. ever. :)

Once upon a time, I met Nick. And on Nick’s birthday, I met his best friend Nate. <3

Nick’s family is full of wonderful, amazing people. His grandparents greet you like long lost friends, his mom has treated me like one of her own since the day we met. His sister is a professional acrobat. His cousin looks like he just stepped off the pages of GQ, but is also one of the kindest people you’ll meet. You get the picture!

When Nick’s Uncle Ron asked us to photograph his wedding, we jumped at the chance! Uncle Ron and Carol were married at Pawley’s Island in South Carolina, where this was the view from the porch of their beach house. Their wedding was so incredibly intimate and emotional, with maybe only 10 people in attendance. We even got to watch Ron and his friends build the arbor! Everything was just perfect.

Dan not only escorted Carol down the aisle, but helped her pick out that incredible dress.

It’s hard to believe it’s been two and a half years since Jenn and Bob’s snowy wedding in New Hope.

Nate met up with them this month for their annual family photos, and totally kicked butt. I was so jealous of how much fun he had while I edited their session! And Bean is getting sooooo big!!! And Kayla is practially a grown up! And Jenn looked like a model! And Nate said Bean kept trying to crawl into his lap while shooting! Swooooooon! <3

Jenn, Bob, Kayla, Jack, and baby Bean, I seriously can’t wait for next year. :)
