Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Park
On Monday, May 22nd, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of documenting the Mukhatiyar family’s Singer Island family vacation memories! Their session took place at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island. I love documenting family vacation portraits at this park because there are always a handful of gorgeous spots to choose from.
We began our session on the wooden deck that led directly to the beach. This wooden deck is surrounded by palm trees and many other beach plants. I love the tropical feel this spot gives. Then we moved on to the beach to one of my favorite spots! This beach is filled with flowy beachgrass and has an adorable wooden lifeguard stand. At sunset, the sun peeks through the grass and the palms in the background giving the most dreamy beach scene.
Afterward, we walked along the shoreline as Shane, their oldest son, gave the best expressions as he saw the waves approach his toes. He also tried everything in his power to dive into the water! This made for some great candid shots!
Lastly, we ended the session in, by far, the most unique part of this beach–the spot that gives this park the name, “Ocean Reef Park”–the coral rock formation on the edge of the shore. The waves crash against the rocks and the water splashes into the air, creating an incredible backdrop!
Mukhatiyar Family, thank you for choosing us to document your first trip to South Florida! It was our pleasure documenting your Singer Island family vacation! We hope to work with you again!
Aren’t they such a gorgeous family!? The photo below is my favorite shot from the entire shoot! His hair, those lips and his eyes looking straight at the camera! SO cute!!

On Sunday, May 7th, 2017 Andrew and I had the pleasure of documenting Jocelyn and Ajay’s intimate destination wedding. Their Palm Beach destination wedding took place at The Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach, FL. Jocelyn and Ajay actually had two destination weddings. While they live in San Fransico, CA, Ajay’s family lives in India and Jocelyn’s family lives in South Florida. With elderly family members unable to travel, they decided to have two weddings. One wedding in India and another in Palm Beach, FL.
Jocelyn and Ajay did a fantastic job planning their Palm Beach destination wedding! You would never know it took them only 5 weeks to plan it! They wanted a simple intimate wedding with an elegant ceremony and a simple cocktail reception. The Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach, FL, offered them just that. This historic hotel gave an elegant charm to the affair. The perfect venue for an intimate Palm Beach wedding.
Ajay and Jocelyn, thank you so much for entrusting us to document your Palm Beach destination wedding! It was such an honor being a part of your second big day! We wish you all the best in this wonderful new season of life!
Jocelyn’s dress was perfection. Gorgeous florals by Blossom Shoppe Florist. Then it was time for the first look The bridal party. Fresh pastel bouquets are my favorite.
Then it was time for the ceremony to begin.These were photos of Jocelyn and Ajay’s grandparents on their wedding days. Their gorgeous cake by Sugar Monkey. Then it was time to cut the cake! Sweet moments following the ceremony. Jocelyn’s grandfather got emotional as he welcomed his new grandson into his family.

On Sunday, May 7th, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Sarah & Tio’s Wynwood Walls Anniversary shoot in Miami, Florida! You may remember Sarah & Tio because we also captured their wedding in January of 2016. It was so fun chatting up as we strolled through Miami’s Art District!
Sarah and Tio both love color! If you remember their wedding you probably remember the colors! Their Croquet Wedding was filled with colorful flowers and gorgeous details. It quickly became one of my favorite weddings that year! So when it came to their 1-year anniversary portraits they naturally decided on a magically colorful place–Wynwood.
When Sarah told me they wanted their photos done at Wynwood walls I was instantly thrilled, for multiple reasons. The main reason was because I knew they would feel happy and at-home in such a brightly colored place! I love when my clients choose a location that they truly love or where they have spent time together. They always look and feel so relaxed in a place they love! And I love relaxed and happy clients!
Sarah and Tio also brought along their adorable pug, Sofia! She posed and looked at the camera when I called her name! Andrew also had fun hanging out with her while I capture shots of just Sarah and Tio!
Sarah & Tio, thank you so much for choosing us again! We love working with you both and we can’t wait to do this again next year! Here’s to many more years of marriage bliss!
We started the shoot in front of one of my favorite walls! Sarah & Tio wore the PERFECT colors! They matched so well with many different walls! When I saw this spot I got really excited! These colors were gorgeous and matched what they were wearing perfectly! Meet Sofia the pug! Loved the colors in this spot!
