Kenzy & Ed Engagement Session | House of Refuge Engagement Session | Treasure Coast Photographer | House of Refuge

A few months ago, I had the amazing privilege of shooting Kenzy and her fiancé Ed at the House of Refuge. This couple was so much fun to work with and Ed, had such creative ideas for the photo shoot, which I so appreciated! It was important to them to incorporate their two adorable and well behaved pups, and we started the shoot by the river side, shooting under the pier, and then we brought it back around to the beach side and got some great shots by the rocks where Kenzy and Ed really got to have some fun hanging out by the water and being playful with one another. 

Here are a few photos from their engagement session!

Engagement Session in Palm Beach| Palm Beach Engagement Session | Worth Avenue

Rachel contacted me a few months ago about doing her engagement session somewhere in West Palm Beach where she is located at, and I immediately knew where I wanted to take her! I sent her some sample photos I found online of the amazing location and she fell in love right away. The location is on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, it is a beautiful strip of streets with little spots with a gorgeous scenery and little gardens hidden in almost every corner. We had so many beautiful elements around us and we tried to take advantage of them all!

 

Here is a peek into their gorgeous engagement session!

Florida Wedding Photographer | Fort Pierce Wedding Photographer | Jessica & Zach Engagement Session | White City Park

Here they are again. Jessica and Zach in front of my camera doing their awesome thing. They had an event to go to where they had the opportunity to get all dressed up and look absolutely stunning, so of course, they had me document them!

I am so glad I got to meet Jessica, I met her at a bridal show a few months ago and she hired me for her wedding, in the months working together, we have become good friends and she is such an absolute pleasure to work with. You can take a look at their engagement session here.

This time, we took the session over at White City Park in Fort Pierce. The light was perfect, the weather was beautiful and Jessica looked gorgeous in her deep red wine colored dress.

Here are some images from their session.

Treasure Coast Photographer | Stuart, Florida | House of Refuge Engagement Session

Kevin and Louise are one of the sweetest couples I know.  When I met Louise, I knew our styles were a perfect match. She enjoyed candid and real moments which spoke to my heart. It was important to her to include things that spoke to who her and Kevin were which made me even more excited for our session. When we began, they both had the giggles, they couldn't stop laughing at one another and every hug and touch turned into a fit of laughter which in turn, had me hysterical behind the camera. It made our session fun, care free, and light hearted, which I think is what makes them so great together. Kevin and Louise both are an outdoorsy couple, who enjoy surfing and skateboarding together, so they incorporated both into their session and the outcome was phenomenal.

They chose the House of Refuge as their location which totally fit them as they wanted to incorporate skateboarding and surfing into their session. It seemed like the perfect place to do both. We started out under the pier and worked our way to the beach and shot some amazing shots by the ocean and rocks. They changed their outfits and brought out their skateboards and then skated in the parking area and in the middle of the road ( we made sure to triple check for cars).

Wedding Day Timeline | Florida Wedding Photographer | Treasure Coast Photographer | Port Saint Lucie Photographer

I get it. You don't want to stress on the big day about being punctual for the biggest day of your life. I mean, it takes time for hair and makeup and then your there with all your family and you might be seeing family members you haven't seen in years and then things take longer when you add all that up. Trust me, I am the queen of "going with the flow". However, this one time, I am a stickler for for time, I need a timeline and I need you to follow it! If you do this one thing, it will set your day up for success.

I have had a few brides where the time came for  a timeline, they gave me a few things that are happening around a certain time and then they say they just want to go with the flow or they aren't mindful on the day of about time and then it leaves us with no time to take bridal portraits. 

Wedding's run late. All the wedding's that I have been to, almost always run late. The few that haven't, is because the bride was a stickler for their timeline. They were meticulous in the planning process and created a bullet proof timeline that even had wiggle room. They ASSUMED their guests would be late, they ASSUMED their hair and makeup would take longer and so they took all these things into account and created a timeline to ensure, that they had time for the MOST important thing on your wedding day. THE BRIDE AND GROOM PORTRAITS.

There are a lot of ways you can cut costs on a wedding day but having a good photographer shouldn't be it. But that's for a different post. The point of this post, is your timeline. You spend so much money on this big day and your awesome photographer will capture every single moment and every single detail. If you put money into, I am capturing it. I am looking for things that are engraved, I am shooting your dress, I am shooting the rings, and I am even shooting your wedding invitation if you leave one out for me! All the months of details I am capturing and when you leave me with time to do it, I can ensure that I can get it all done. A timeline helps me with this to. I want to be able to capture the work into your reception area before the guests arrive and start sitting. I want to be able to capture your beautiful dinner tables before your guests sit down to eat.

Sometimes a bride is running late and time starts running into portrait time and the bride and groom are insistent on taking pictures with all their guests and then that leaves no room for the bride and groom alone. They want to take a picture with Aunt Sally, and Uncle bob, and cousin Mary who flew all the way in from Utah just for the big day, and I get it. These people are here to celebrate you and you want to show your appreciation but there is SO MUCH time during the reception to stop by tables and take pictures with your guests, there is so much time after dinner to go around and ask your guests to take a picture with you. I know there is a lot going on but I also will ask you before I leave if you want to take any pictures with guests, and at that time you can grab people and take pictures with them.

Your timeline is IMPORTANT. It let's all your vendors know what's going on next and tells me where I need to be and when I need to be there. Once my brides book with me, they receive a timeline sample but it's just general guidelines. Take the time to remember your timeline. Give one to all your vendors. Be mindful on the day of with your timeline. Set alarms on your phone if you have to. Don't miss out on AMAZING pictures with your groom because you didn't have the time!

Moriah and Sinjin made some sweet, delicious, lemonade out of some sour lemons. They were suppose to get married a few months ago, but unfortunately, Hurricane Mathew came and ruined what was suppose to be their wedding day. So they changed plans, they decided to have a small wedding ceremony filled with immediate family, at the Heathcote Botanical gardens in Fort Pierce. It was quiet and intimate and full of love. They decided on having a first look, which of course had me completely teary eyed behind my camera!

Fort Pierce Wedding Photographer | Fort Pierce Engagement Session | Port Saint Lucie Wedding Photographer

I get to meet some amazing people doing what I do. 2016 has been full of amazing clients and vendors and I am so thankful. I met Jessica at a bridal show and seriously, she has one beautiful soul. Jessica and her amazing guy Zach, have to be the sweetest couple I know. They are full of fun and adventure and good laughs. We had such a blast with their engagement session venturing around this property in Fort Pierce. It looks to be like it was an abandoned train station, that turned into a boys and girls club, that later shut down. There are so many cool little nooks and doors and fields in this location, that it has quickly turned into one of my favorite spots to shoot at.

Here are a few photos from their engagement session!

Port Saint Lucie Photographer | Fort Pierce Wedding Photographer | Engagement Session near Downtown Fort Pierce

Megan and Brent were so awesome to work with during their engagement session. We had so much fun exploring this awesome location. The location is located in Fort Pierce, Florida near downtown Fort Pierce. It is an abandoned building full of character and industrial pieces all around. The location was an old train station turned into an old boys and girls club, which is now shut down, and just stands as an empty building with empty train carts and dead tracks. It is completely different than any other location around me and it has quickly turned into one of my favorite locations. 

 

As soon as Brent and Megan saw the location, they wanted to shoot their engagement session there and I could not be happier. Sure we had to dodge some old rusty nails and broken glass, but I think the risk was completely worth it!

Here is a few peeks into their engagement session!

Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | Jupiter Light House Wedding | Jupiter Wedding Photographer

I am beyond grateful to have worked with some amazing vendors to have a photo shoot published, not once, but TWICE! Myself, along with an amazing coordinator, Angeli from Love Promoted, came together to plan this wonderful wedding inspired photo shoot. It took months of planning and we literally were trying to escape the rain through out the shoot, and that's what gave us these gray skies, but nevertheless, we got it done. We submitted it to a few wedding blogs and were able to get it featured on Borrowed and Blue, and Orange Blossom Bride.

We decided the location of the beach would be at Dubois Park in Jupiter, Florida. It was an amazing location because we had the gorgeous boat docks to play around on, and the beautiful lighthouse as our back drop. The models were a fun newly wed couple and we all had so much fun!

Here are the images from the published photo shoot.

Wedding Day At PGA Village Island Club

 I am super excited about being able to blog about this amazing wedding I had just a few weeks ago! Samira and her husband had a super fun wedding over at the PGA Village Island Club in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. They incorporated their Turkish culture to the wedding and made the night full of fantastic surprises, (like when they had their first dance and all the guest threw money at them, umm, yes please).

 They have actually been married for a year already, but were having another reception type of event for family who wasn't able to make it to their real wedding.

Here are a few peeks from the day!

5 Tips that Helped Me Grow My Business.

Can we talk about something real for a second?

If you had come to me a few years ago and said to me that I would be my OWN business owner, working my own hours, and running a business how I see fit, I would have laughed in your face. I lacked self confidence and in many ways still do. BUT, I know that when you work hard, you can achieve your dreams, and I believe this to be true about so many things.

I get asked all the time different questions on facebook about how I do different things in my business. The answer: Hustle. No, not the Jay - Z rap kind of hustle. Hustle in the way where you truly believe in yourself and your working every single day for your business. Hustle in the way where you are looking for new ways to grow your business and gain new clients.  Hustle, and set your self realistic goals so that when you achieve them you are one step closer to your dreams.

When I decided that I wanted to become a wedding photographer, I set myself 3 goals for the year, realistic goals. Here were my goals: 1. I wanted to start second shooting for other wedding photographers to gain experience and knowledge, 2. Set myself up a website that I was proud of and 3. Shoot at least one of my own weddings. I not only achieved every single one of those goals, but I exceeded expectations. I booked over a dozen weddings for myself that year, I got myself a functioning website that I am proud of, and I got to shoot along side an amazing talented photographer and I learned a ton of things. 

I secretly had other goals. Like my 3 year goal was to get published, and my 5 year goal was to travel for my photography, and I got to achieve both those goals barely in my second year of running my business. 

My business today, is not where I want it to be, I am not at the price point I want to be, and I want more for my business but, I believe in myself. I am setting myself up with new goals this year and I know I can achieve them.

Here is the answer to achieving your goals; you have to go after them. Don't sit around and wait for a potential client to come and check out your jewelry shop because you created a facebook page for your new business. Chances are slim to none that you announce on FB you started a business and the clients come pouring in. No, YOU have to work, go out there, and SHOW people your jewelry. My first Fall Season in photography I printed out a ton of pages of a simple flyer I made for "fall sessions" and I drove out in my car and gave one to a bunch of neighbors and just stuck it in their mailbox. Some may call it desperate, I call it chasing after my dreams. How will people know if you don't tell them?

I am in no way an expert. I am not a business guru and I still have so much learning in my own business, but I will share a few things that helped me grow my business.

1) Build relationships with other business owners. There are so many groups on facebook where you can meet other creative entrepreneurs. Notice how I said BUILD RELATIONSHIPS. Don't just message another jewelry shop owner on facebook and say "hey, I saw your amazing ring, where did you get that beautiful stone from? Where do your purchase your jewelry products from?" No, not cool. Not cool to just start asking another business owners all their tricks. But if you BUILD a RELATIONSHIP with someone, they are more likely to share some tips with you, and eventually you will learn things that could help them too.

2) Do your research. Anybody can get a camera, and then start a facebook business page, and then call themselves a photographer, and then start charging clients. Before I started my business, my camera was in my hand, every. Single. Day. I put my camera on Manual mode and never took it off. I figured out a photography style that I loved, and then I did everything I can to achieve that look with my camera. It use to take me about an hour to put my daughter to sleep and I would lay down with her on my bed nursing her and watching videos and workshops on having your camera on manual mode. I practiced in different lighting situations to ensure that I can handle them. I practiced getting "bokeh" (blurry background). I researched different lenses and figured out which ones I needed to achieve the look I was going for. Then, when I was comfortable enough to ask people, I asked if I can shoot their kids and their families for free. And every single time I practiced, I learn something new. I learned the best time of day to shoot for lighting purposes, I learned what posing works, I learned how to make people comfortable in front of the camera, I learned that it usually takes 15 minutes for people to get comfortable around the camera so start with boring poses and then get into the good stuff.

3) Give you your clients a 5 star experience. Remember the rule that the customer is always right, even when they are wrong. When you give your client a 5 star experience, they will be more excited to talk about you to their friends. Word of mouth is stronger than any kind of marketing technique you got up your sleeve. Word of mouth clients, are willing to pay and not haggle you for pricing. Word of mouth clients will build your business. Think of special things like cute or unique packaging, thank you cards, and welcome packets. Answer questions right away, go above and beyond for every client because when they love you, they will talk about you. When they talk about you, other people will hire you.

4) Try doing small giveaways to bring attention to your business, and your page. This is something I will probably keep doing. I love bringing attention to my page and my business by doing different giveaways. This year, I will probably be doing a free mini session giveaway, you never know if this person might end up being a potential client in the future, or if they have friends who will need your services. Don't be afraid to ask them to talk about you and your products and services on social media.

5) Attend local vendor events. Smaller local events are usually pretty affordable and even in some cases, free. You get the chance to sell products, to potential clients, talk to people about what you do, meet other local vendors and create new relationships, and if you do a giveaway you can collect emails and then start an email list. When you start an email list, you can keep in touch with them and let them know about special sales or giveaways that you will be having and can possibly make a few sales through email marketing. 

Have a dream? Believe in yourself, and go out there and achieve them. Chase after them, and don't expect for the clients to find you, go out there and find them! 

Port Saint Lucie Photographer | Palm Beach Photographer| Family Styled Session

I get to meet the most amazing people! I get to photograph them showing their love and appreciation for one another and it makes me so giddy inside!  I met Karla through facebook, she is also a small business owner and gives massages here in Port Saint Lucie. I got the chance to photograph her and her amazing family. They were just fun. Not only were they fun but they really were troopers. Not only was it scorching hot outside but we were dodging ant piles over at White City Park. But, we made it happen and got some really great photographs of them all together as a family, some of just their girls hanging out in a teepee, and some cute ones of Just Karla alone for her Facebook business page ;) .

 

Here is a peek into their awesome session!

Palm Beach Photographer | Styled Engagement Session | Palm Beach, Florida

A few months ago I had the absolute pleasure of being able to be a part of a styled shoot with some amazing photographers. As a photographer who specializes in weddings and engagements, I got super excited to find out we had an amazing engaged couple to work with. They did such an amazing job modeling for all of us, I am sure it wasn't easy to get comfortable in front of so many photographers, but they did an amazing job and they had such wonderful chemistry. It was also such a pleasure working and learning from other photographers in my area. I worked with so many talented photographers with each their own individual style and it was such a wonderful experience!

 

 I am excited to share a few peeks into their session with you all today!

Lindsay wanted to get some cute photographs done of her cute baby girl who is now turning 6 months old! We chose White City Park, in Fort Pierce Florida as the location to get our cute teepee set up and beautiful candid, natural shots. It was hot and muggy out, but despite the sticky weather, the both did a wonderful job! Here are a few peeks into this precious session of a momma and her sweet girl.

Palm Beach Photographer | Jupiter Beach | Jess & Louis Engagement Session

As we started our session, a few local people came to the beach with their surfboards in hand and apparently Louis recognized them right away. Jess and Louis live five minutes away from Jupiter beach and head there almost weekend. Together they share a beautiful little who is 5 years old and now they are planning their big day. The beach was the perfect place to capture them in their element. We set up the teepee, we added some flower crowns, and we began shooting right before sunset. Although, we were there in the evening, the beach was still pretty crowded which of course made them both feel uneasy, but as we began shooting, they quickly became more comfortable in front of the camera. I am so glad I got the chance to shoot them both in their element.

Moriah and her fiance Sinjin are a sweet young couple that contacted me for their October wedding. They just had their engagement session done at White City Park in Fort Pierce and they rocked it. Moriah looked beautiful in her gorgeous summer dress and together we walked around take a few shots of them as we got to talk about more details of their wedding day!

Here are a few peeks into their engagement session. I love all the beautiful spanish moss hanging from the tree's at this park, it gives everything such a rustic feel.

Ground Floor Farm Wedding | Stuart, Florida | Treasure Coast Wedding

Jessica and Jake were such a fun couple to work with. Together, they share an amazing little boy named Mason.  They had their wedding at the Ground Floor Farm.  It is an absolute gorgeous "urban" farm located in downtown, Stuart, Florida. They had a shabby-chic, southern wedding and the decor and all their vintage, rustic touches, made the event look and feel like a gorgeous Southern Wedding.

Here are a few highlights of their wedding day.

Port Saint Lucie Wedding Photographer, now available for Destination Weddings

This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of being able to travel down to St. Simons, GA to shoot a Southern brunch wedding. It was such an amazing time and I am so glad I was able to drive down and travel to capture their big wedding day. I knew all a long that one day, I wanted my photography to allow me to capture people's wedding days worldwide, and I am so glad that the day has come sooner than expected!

As a photographer located in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, I usually cover Port Saint Lucie, The treasure Coast, and West Palm Beach. Every now and then I get a wedding a little further south or North but I am so happy to announce, that I am now available for travel not only within Florida, but world wide. 

In order to celebrate this big announcement, I will be offering $200 OFF ANY Wedding package through out the entire summer.
