A Southern Engagement Session

Friday, November 9th, 2012

We have a very special engagement session to showcase today because this sweet couple, Brittany and Cory, are getting married tomorrow!  Both the engagement session and the wedding are at the Santa Fe River Ranch, one of the up-and-coming wedding venues in Central Florida… and rightfully so!!  This gorgeous, southern ranch can be dressed up or dressed down to fit every bride’s taste.  We hope you enjoy this engagement session as much as we did.  This couple was full of laughs and smiles as they enjoyed this time together and thought towards their big day.  We love the sweet interactions that were captured between these two and look forward to the true joy that will be captured tomorrow!


The Holidays are Near!

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… well, not quite yet, but we are getting ready for it!!  It is that time of year to start thinking about Christmas lists and putting together a wonderful card or letter to send out to all of your family and friends.  We are here to help!  We wanted to showcase a few of our products to help you get a jump start on your holiday shopping.  We are currently scheduling sessions for families, kids, babies, couples, and anyone else! So make sure to schedule early to have plenty of time to order products after your sessions.  Want to surprise your spouse or the grandparents with a special gift?!  Get a session done of your kids and choose from our many amazing products to give as a gift.  It will be treasured for years to come!

You can check out details about our portrait sessions on our new website.

Custom Christmas Cards:  These are always a holiday favorite!  This makes for a great opportunity to update your family’s latest portraits and create a personalized gift you will want to send to all your families and friends.

Gallery Wraps and Wall Prints :  This is a wonderful keepsake… for you!!  Pick out your favorite images from the session and have them displayed in your home for years to come as a beautiful gallery wrap or a framed wall print.

Custom Albums : We know sometimes it is hard to choose just one or two images from the session, so our custom albums are a perfect way to remember all of it!  These are gorgeous bound coffee table books that are filled with all of your favorite images and include original design elements that show off the fun personalities of your family and children.

Footstone Brides :  This is a great time of year to get some of your wedding images printed!  Maybe say a special thank you to your parents with a custom parent album.  Or get one of the gorgeous wedding images for your home in a gallery wrap or wall print.  We can also create custom cards, just for you with your wedding images.  Grooms – you can make this a memorable “First Christmas” for you bride with a beautiful surprise, just for her!!

Still can’t decide?  Contact us to get a gift certificate and your special someone will be able to pick out the perfect gift!

Tricia & Matt’s Haile Plantation Golf & Country Club Wedding

Friday, October 26th, 2012

We have been fortunate this past year to photograph quite a few weddings at the Haile Plantation Golf and Country Club.  It never disappoints!  Tricia and Matt’s wedding was no exception.  Their beautiful summer wedding fell into place perfectly with all the help from the staff of the Country Club.  Not only can the bride and groom both be getting ready on site which gives us so much time to photograph that special part of the day,  but there are many places all around the course that provide gorgeous landscapes as backdrops.

As you can see from the bride’s sparkly heels (she made those herself!!) and the bright pinks and greens throughout the wedding, Tricia and Matt were a very fun and playful couple to work with. Their wedding party was full of energy and super excited for this sweet couple as well.  There were many special moments throughout the day, but I must say that Tricia’s father/daughter dance was one of my favorites! No one saw it coming!!

I just have one more thing to add about Tricia and Matt… first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes…. Ah…Congratulations you guys!!  What a wonderful day and we’re so excited for your now growing family!

We had the pleasure of working with these fabulous vendors… It’s always a pleasure!
