I’m Learning That Home Is More Of A Feeling Than A Place, And Adventures Don’t Have To Be Outside Of Your Zip Code. I Used To Get Jealous Of All Of These Photographers Living In Cool Places Like California Or Utah- “of Course Their Portfolios Are Amazing, Mine Would Be Too If I Had That As A Backdrop!” I Was So Envious Of The Locations They Had At Their Disposal, And Lamented The Unfair Correlation Between Notoriety And One’s Home Base. And While It’s Definitely True That Dramatic Landscapes Garner Likes More Easily, It’s Absolutely False That You Need To Live Somewhere Cool To Create Magical Photos. Not That Florida Isn’t Cool, I Guess- It’s Just So Flat😭 I Thought I Hated Our Sea-level Elevation, And Unpredictable Weather, And All Of Our Freaking Palm Trees Everywhere. When I First Started Setting Up Shoots And Would Brainstorm With My Peers, They’d Say, “where Do You Want To Go?” And My Response Would Always Be, “somewhere That Doesn’t Look Like Florida.” I Wanted Mountains And Valleys, And Tall Grasses And Pine Trees, Red Rocks And Cliff Faces And Redwoods And Moss! (so I’m Moving, But That’s A Different Story!) I Was So Busy Wanting What I Didn’t Have That I Never Stopped To Appreciate This State Of Mine. I’m Going To Miss The Beach. I’m Going To Miss This Incredible Sunrise Lighting, Even Though I Have A Love/hate Relationship With Early Alarms. I’m Going To Miss The Incredible Couples I’ve Gotten To Work With! But It’s All Taught Me An Important Lesson: You Can Find Adventure Anywhere. That’s True For Absolutely Everybody, But Photographers, I’m Talking To You Here: Try Something New. Manipulate The Light Differently, Add Foreground, Be Strategic About Your Background, Invest In A New Posing Course. When You’re At The Beach, Get Away From The Water! Look For New Angles And New Opportunities. Do One Thing At Every Shoot That You’ve Never Tried Before. Edit A Photo Without Using Your Presets. You Can Find Magic Everywhere. You May Just Have To Get A Little Creative😉✨

3 Tips For Perfect Getting Ready Photos✨ (save This For Your Wedding Day!) 1. Keep The Room Clean! If You Can, Have A Designated Space For Dumping All Of Your Stuff- A Closet, A Bathroom, Even A Table- So That When The Photographer Arrives, We Don’t Have To Focus On Avoiding Tote Bags + Water Bottles Everywhere! We Can Just Focus On Capturing You, The Beauty, Without All The Clutter In The Background. 2. Bring Allll Of Your Details! Have Your Jewelry And Shoes Handy, Of Course, But Also Your Perfume, Hair Accessories, And Wedding Invitations, Too. If You Have A Special Ring Box, A Gift From A Loved One, Or Your Something Old/new/borrowed/blue, Make Sure To Have That On Hand For Your Photographer To Capture! We Don’t Want To Miss Any Important Components Of Your Special Day! 3. Schedule A Little More Time Than You Think You Need! This Is A Good Tip For Every Part Of Your Wedding Day, Really. You Don’t Want To Feel Rushed Through Things. Make Sure You Have Time For Hair And Makeup And Photos, Yes, But Also Just A Few Minutes For Yourself♥️ Admire How Gorgeous You Look In The Mirror. Read A Note From Your Partner, Or A Family Member That Won’t Be Joining You. Soak In This Part Of The Day– Your Last Moments Before You Tie The Knot. And Voila! You Don’t Have To Worry About Anything Else. Just Breathe, Smile, And Enjoy!! It’s The Best Day Of Your Life!!
