She was one of the first photographers to take me under her wing when I moved to Jacksonville and helped shape me into the full-service photographer I am today.

Before their engagement photos Shea, Chase and I met up at JTs Seafood Shack a few miles from Washington Oaks where their session would take place. If you’ve never been to JTs, definitely go, it was delicious and the service was awesome. It has this great “old-timey Florida” feel as I like to call it. I […]

One morning in May I got an email from Andrew with an urgent request. He was proposing to his girlfriend of four years – tomorrow. At 10am. And he wanted it to be a surprise engagement at the Lightner Museum in downtown St. Augustine. If you’ve never photographed at the Lightner before, you wouldn’t know […]

When I saw that David Vandygriff was looking for a photographer for Rainbow Awards JAX it took me about 5 seconds to jump on the opportunity.
