Chris & Laurie | The Lodge Ponte Vedra Wedding Photographer

If I remember right, I was stopping at Target on my way home from work one day to find my wife a birthday present and while I was enduring the challenge every husband faces of “which candle scent have I NOT bought her yet” my phone rang. Chris initially found me through a Google search but we went on to find out we are both Eleven22’ers AND he has done the same Panama mission trip that I’ve done. (By the way, after viewing this post, if you haven’t already then go look at the PANAMA post too. You won’t regret it.) So we immediately hit it off! I got a chance later on to sit with him and Laurie together as they decided to hire me for their wedding.

Chris and Laurie had an amazing beach wedding surrounded by close family and friends at Ponte Vedra’s Lodge. They are a wonderful, compassionate, genuine and beautiful couple who I can honestly say I am glad I had the privilege of meeting. Take a look at their big day and join me in congratulating these two on many years of marriage to come!

Ty & Mary | Bowing Oaks Plantation Wedding Photographer

Ty & Mary. Two very awesome people. That’s how I’m choosing to open this post.

I can’t say enough how impressed I am with this couple. When we first met for their EPIC engagement session, we all hit it off right away. Like me, Ty and Mary are fellow Jesus people and it is always an added blessing for me to get to work with other Christians. During their engagement shoot I asked for the story behind their proposal and found out they were doing a couple’s bible study together on Romans 12 and afterward, Ty got down on one knee and popped the question. Boom! That’s how it’s done folks. They also incorporated their faith into their wedding in many other ways too. My personal favorite was the creative spin they put on the traditional guest book by instead having their guests sign their bible and highlight a bible verse in it. SOOO awesome. (By the way if you’re looking for a good one to study for yourself, I recommend Romans 8:1. Here is a video about it that might just change your life.)

Ty and Mary had a stunning winter wedding at the beautiful Bowing Oaks Plantation in Jacksonville, FL. The temps were a little low but luckily the clouds cleared out and the sunshine helped warm us back up just a bit. Join me in saying a very big congratulations to these two and wishing them a very long and wonderful marriage!

And thank you to the very talented Janet Chrys Photography for coming along and shooting alongside me. Go check her out!

James & Katie Wedding (VIDEO) | Epping Forest Yacht Club

James and Katie had an absolutely stunning wedding on the river at Epping Forest Yacht Club this past weekend. Katie was the makeup artist for a couple of previous weddings I’ve shot which is how she found me and I’m glad I got the call because this one has turned out to be one of my favorites. Join me and wishing these two a very big congratulations and a wonderful future together!

John & Nikki Wedding (VIDEO)

Nikki and I met at an ad agency we both used to work at near San Marco where we became friends. She was a graphic designer and I was the in-house video guy. After a few years we both ended up moving on from that company but still kept in touch. When Nikki got engaged and reached out to ask if I'd film her wedding, I was mega pumped because I knew given her incredible design skills and artistic eye (don't believe me? GO HERE) it could only mean one thing......Her wedding would definitely LOOK amazing. I showed up at the mansion and it was a videographer's playground!

Surrounded by family and friends, John and Nikki tied the knot this past weekend in San Marco under clear skies and amazing weather. Take a moment to watch their special day, and join me in saying CONGRATS to this awesome couple!

Billy + Catie | The Glass Factory Wedding Photographer

This was my second wedding at what was and still is my favorite venue in all of Jacksonville. The Glass Factory. I also had the opportunity to shoot a fun little short film here and each time I get the opportunity to work at this place, I am so excited.

Billy and Catie actually found me from the Glass Factory website where I am currently a featured photographer. (Thanks Glass Factory folks!) I got the call and we met one afternoon at the beach and immediately we all knew it was going to be a good fit. Billy and Catie not only had an amazing wedding, but they also are the couple who I shot my all time favorite engagement photo of. (View here. You'll know which one I'm talking about when you see it.)

Surrounded by an amazing group of friends and family, these two tied the knot at what was one of if not the most fun weddings I've ever done. They are two very incredible and genuine people and it shows by all of the friends that they had show up for their big day. I'll admit, after doing this gig now for a decade it can sometimes be difficult to keep my motivation to show up and put the long hours in, but when you come across a couple like this, it doesn't feel like work.

Congrats Billy and Catie, and thank you for letting me capture your special day! - Adam

Nick + Deb | TPC Sawgrass Wedding Photographer

Nick and Deb are from Tampa and found me in a Google search. And boy am I glad they gave me the call because they are AWESOME and absolutely loved working with them. After what turned out to be one of my favorite engagement sessions, they had one of the most incredible weddings ever at one of the best venues in Northeast Florida, the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse.

Congrats you two on your big day and thank you for letting me share in it!

Special thanks to the very talented Bre Cherry for second shooting. Hire her for your wedding here: www.brecherryphotography.com

Hope + Choua | Crystal Ballroom Wedding Photographer

Ok so this is the first of blogging several weddings I am way behind on. I got a chance to shoot a very fun and special wedding for this incredible couple, Hope and Choua. The post will start with their engagement shoot in down in St. Augustine followed by their amazing wedding that took place even further south down in Daytona at the beautiful Crystal Ballroom. Take a look through their images and join me on congratulating Hope and Choua on their special day!

Emily + Brock | Epping Forest Yacht Club Wedding Videographer (VIDEO)

Brock and Emily found me in a Google search when they were looking for videographers for their wedding. When we first met and started talking, somewhere during the conversation we found out that we both go to Eleven22! So I do not believe we met by accident. :)

Brock and Emily had a beautiful wedding at one of Jacksonville's most incredible venues, Epping Forest Yacht Club. But my favorite part about this couple, AND their wedding, is that it put Jesus first! And you can hear it coming straight from both their hearts in their vows to one another. So come along and take a look at the wedding highlight reel from their special day and join me in saying congratulations to this amazing couple!
