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!

Billy + Catie | Atlantic Beach Engagement Photographer

Catie and Billy found me on the Glass Factory website and I am VERY glad they did because when we got finished with their shoot this past week, I walked away with an engagement photo that easily skyrocketed to the very top of my all time favorite list. Hint, it was the thumbnail of this post but in case you somehow miss it, scroll down and it's the one that should make you stop and say "wow." Ok so enough boasting about myself and the cool photo I took. Because if it weren't for these two awesome people who braved the storms of that day and still went out for their engagement session, we'd never have that photo anyway.

Catie and Billy are an amazing couple who are crazy about each other and like to laugh and just be themselves in front of the camera. We had a lot of fun starting at their 2nd story beach house and then found our way down a very cool and rugged painted dock that is sort of a secret spot in Atlantic beach that I am not going to share here so the other beach photographers can't steal it.

Check back for their Glass Factory wedding early 2018!!

Kelly + Bump | Adam Szarmack Jacksonville Maternity Photographer

So this maternity shoot has a little extra meaning for me. This is my sister-in-law and mommy to be Kelly. In just a few weeks from now she and her husband will be bringing a new little addition to our family--a baby boy! We are super excited for them and can't wait to meet the little guy!
