Amy & Alan | Palm Beach Lake Trail Engagement

An adventurous & romantic engagement session at the historic Bethesda by the Sea and the Palm Beach Lake Trail


Adventurous Bethesda by the Sea and Palm Beach Lake Trail Engagement | Palm Beach Engagement Photographer (1)

On Saturday, June 18th, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Amy and Alan’s Palm Beach Lake Trail Engagement shoot! This engagement shoot was an adventure. I have never captured an engagement shoot quite like this one. Not only are Amy and Alan absolutely adorable but they were also genuine and kind.

Amy and Alan were a pleasure to work with! They were easy going and so much fun! We began our session at the Church of Bethesda by the Sea for some romantic shots. Then the next part of our session was a two-hour bike ride along the Palm Beach Lake Trail! We stopped along the way capturing sweet moments in some of Palm Beach’s most historic areas. Riding bikes along this bike trail is an activity that Amy and Alan love doing together so it was appropriate that we did just that for their engagement photos!

The love story

Alan and Amy met just over 10 years ago, they were both in the yachting industry and became close friends. They lost touch over the years but in June of 2013, they ran into each other again at a networking event. Amy remembers how excited she was to see him. Amy told Alan that she would love to be friends with him again. Alan had recently been through a divorce so they stayed friends for many months and then their friendship blossomed into a relationship.

Amy and Alan have been dating now for two and a half years. Alan is very much a traditionalist, so Amy had to get used to him opening doors for her each and every single time, not just on special dates. He was also the first man who actually asked her to be his girlfriend. They both work very hard but when they aren’t working they enjoy simply spending time together. They’ve done the Palm Beach bike trail many times as a date and it’s one of their favorite things to do.

Alan and Amy, thank you for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of capturing your engagement photos! It was so wonderful meeting and working with you both! Best wishes!

Chelsea + Joseph | Mayacoo Lake Country Club Wedding

A Romantic Spring Wedding at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club

in West Palm Beach, Florida


Mayacoo Lakes Country Club Wedding | West Palm Beach Wedding Photographer


On Saturday, June 11th, Andrew and I had the honor of being a part of Chelsea and Joseph‘s Mayacoo Lakes Country Club Wedding. Their wedding day was filled with many beautiful and unique details! My favorite part was the colorful and delicious donut bar! That’s right, instead of having just a traditional wedding cake the couple chose to have donuts for the guests!  But these weren’t just any donuts. They were Jupiter Donut Factory donuts and boy, were they amazing!

It’s springtime and like most days in June, it rained for most of the day. However, this didn’t faze Chelsea or Joseph because nothing would ruin this day. It was their wedding day, a day many years in the making.

Chelsea and Joseph met in High school. Joseph used to play basketball for their school’s basketball team and he used to tell his teammates that Chelsea had the prettiest blue eyes he had ever seen. When they finally met Chelsea didn’t pay Joseph much attention. She was playing hard to get! Then one day, Joseph finally had enough of battling for her attention so he asked her out and soon Chelsea realized she actually loved having him in her life. They dated all throughout high school and into college.

In 2012, they were blessed with their son Jaxon and a year later in 2013 Joseph asked Chelsea to be his wife. After a long 3-year engagement, their wedding day was such a special day and full of so much joy!

Chelsea told me one day, “I’ll never forget the day I told Joey I would finally be serious with him. Right after that he told me he knew I was the girl he was going to marry one day.” That day finally came and it was oh-so-joyous!

Chelsea and Joseph, thank you for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of capturing your wedding day! It was truly an honor being a part of your big day!

Georgette + Omar | Palm Beach Engagement

A Romantic Palm Beach Engagement on Worth Avenue & the beach


Palm Beach Engagement Photographer


On Sunday, June 12th, I had the pleasure of capturing Georgette and Omar’s Worth Avenue, Palm Beach engagement portrait session! It was a gorgeous spring day and for some reason, Worth Avenue wasn’t busy at all. We strolled the colorful streets and made our way to some of the best spots.

During the first half of the shoot, we were in one particular spot that was quite private and romantic (so we thought) so I decided to start moving them into a more romantic pose. Well right as my couple was falling into the pose, we hear a screech and then clapping from above. Mind you, there was also an echo, so when I heard it coming from right above me I jumped and screamed as well, then my couple (who were forehead to forehead) jumped as well not knowing what had just happened. Shortly after the initial shock, we realized the lady in the apartment above us had seen their cuteness and couldn’t help but scream! We laughed and it made for some great shots!

Later the sweet lady let us take some photos in the front part of her home and they came out  absolutely gorgeous! After exploring Worth Avenue, we headed to the beach! Georgette changed into a stunning coral flowy dress that really popped against the dreamy Palm Beach backdrop. Their engagement session was full of laughter, colorful sights and so many adorable moments.

Georgette and Omar, you are such a beautiful couple both inside and out! It was an absolute honor capturing your Palm Beach engagement photos! Thank you for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of being a part of this special time. I hope your destination wedding is amazing and everything you hope for! Best wishes!

Featured: Dreamy Spring Wedding Inspiration

A Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration ShootDreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (1)


On a sunny South Florida afternoon, a team of wedding creatives merged their talents to create a dreamy Palm Beach wedding inspiration shoot. Creamy pastels, coastal Palm Beach scenes and a head-over-heels-in-love couple effortlessly filled each frame. The epitome of elegant and nautical, this styled shoot was filled to the brim with whimsical scenes and joyful spirits. Classical touches of the 1950’s, fitting perfectly with the Annual Palm Beach Regatta providing sailboats and dreamy shores for a breezy backdrop. The bride adorns a timeless lace gown with an elusion neckline and delicate long sleeves, all of which were custom-designed. Her bouquet and flower crown were composed of soft pastels — giving a light, airy hint of Spring. Simple diamond jewelry paired gracefully with a bold yet tasteful crimson lip color. Classic navy pants, a sharp white shirt, and a light blue striped tie coupled nicely with the tan suspenders worn by the groom.

Planning and capturing this wedding inspiration shoot was a dream to create. This was my first styled shoot ever and I also planned the shoot in THREE days! When I heard about the 2nd Annual Palm Beach Regatta that was happening three days later, I had a thought. I LOVE sailboats and anything nautical so I thought it would make an incredible backdrop for a styled shoot! I thought of the location almost immediately!  I knew the West Palm Beach side would be packed because of the Regatta but I figured that on the Palm Beach island the view would be great and there wouldn’t be a crowd. I thought the Lake Trails next to the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum would be perfect! The spot was amazing, even though there weren’t as many sailboats as I had hoped the view was still incredible!

When it came time to find models, I immediately thought of a friend and fellow photographer, Augusta and her husband Travis. Augusta contacted me about a year ago when she moved back to South Florida after living in Alaska with her husband! We met up for coffee, chatted about life & photography and have been friends ever since! When I asked Augusta, she quickly asked Travis and within a few hours they said yes! I was so excited!

Since this was my first styled shoot, I knew I wanted to keep it simple yet I wanted a classic 1950s American elegance. I contacted some of my favorite wedding vendors and friends!   Within ONE day I have all the vendors I needed! I was shocked with how quickly they all committed! I sent them an inspiration board but told them to have fun with it and create something they loved. Oh boy, did they deliver! I am SO thankful for them all!

Love this little house! When we were shooting the owner of the home came out and started chatting with us! We initially just wanted to get a few shots on the sidewalk with the house in the background, but when the owner came out she started to tell us about the history of the property (I love a good story about the history of something) she invited us to take as many photos as we would like! She told us that her father built the house, in the early 1900s and passed it along to her after his passing. During the story telling, she even invited some of the team into her home for a tour! Seriously, the sweetest women ever! Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (3)Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (42)Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (44)My favorite shot!! Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (43)Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (46)Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (45)Dreamy Palm Beach Wedding Inspiration | Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | West Palm Beach Wedding Photography | The Flagler Museum | Palm Beach, Florida (6)
