The Brando :: Islands February 2015//December 19, 2014

On my recent trip to Tahiti, I had the opportunity to visit the newly opened Brando Resort. Owned by the estate of Marlon Brando, the resort is on a private atoll and gives new meaning to privacy and luxury!the_brando_tahiti

Vegas, baby!//December 3, 2014

Back in November I took a trip to Las Vegas to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon and 5k Remix Challenge. While I was there, I toured Red Rock Canyon and the Neon Sign Museum. Thought I’d share a few fun photos with you!

I had a blast spending the afternoon with Georgia at Rollins College shooting her senior portraits. She’s sweet, smart, and an awesome lacrosse player!

Mission Inn Sangria Shoot//July 16, 2014

I had a blast recently shooting some sangria images for the Mission Inn. And if you’re wondering, yes, they’re as delicious as they look!




Travel :: Jamaica Inn//July 9, 2014


I can’t say enough good things about my recent trip to the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios. The resort is adorable, the people are utterly charming, and the food is calorie laden and delicious (everything it should be when you’re traveling!) Four days was not enough and I was sad to leave it all behind, but planning a return visit someday gives  me something to look forward to!01__MG_3632 02__MG_2956 03__MG_2979 04__MG_3006 05__MG_3027 06__MG_3503 07__MG_3541 08__MG_3471 09__MG_3104 10__MG_3765 11__MG_3232 12__MG_3277 14__MG_3625 15__MG_3688 16__MG_3702 17__MG_3760 18__MG_3789

Engagement :: Kendall + Matt//March 31, 2014

Kendall and Matt have such warm, fun personalities. It’s a good thing too, because it was (the Florida version of) freezing when we shot their engagement photos out in Daytona! Despite the cold and they wind they, and Kendall’s dog, Chance, were troopers and we had a blast! I can’t wait for their wedding this fall at Casa Feliz!daytona_engagement_photographer_01daytona_engagement_photographer_02daytona_engagement_photographer_03daytona_engagement_photographer_04daytona_engagement_photographer_05daytona_engagement_photographer_06daytona_engagement_photographer_07daytona_engagement_photographer_08daytona_engagement_photographer_09daytona_engagement_photographer_10
