Palm Beach Senior Photos on Worth Avenue

On Thursday, June 14th, I had the pleasure of capturing Madeline’s Palm Beach Senior photos on Worth Avenue. Her Senior session was filled with lots of smiles and Summer feels! Due to the crazy weather we have had this past month we had to reschedule her session four times! I have never had to reschedule a session that many times (not even twice) but it was sure worth the wait!

Madeline is such a gifted and sweet young woman. She graduated from Suncoast Community High School and will be studying journalism at the University of Florida in the fall! She sings in a band and loves photography. I had such a wonderful time working with her and getting to know her.

Madeline, I wish you all the best in this new season of life! I hope you enjoy this new adventure and seize every opportunity placed in your path! I know you have a bright future!

Elisa & Brian | Whimsical Rainy Wedding in Boca Raton, Florida

Whimsical Rainy Wedding at the Wyndham Hotel in Boca Raton, Florida


Whimsical Rainy Wedding at the Wyndham Hotel in Boca Raton, Florida (2)


On May 26th, 2018, Andrew and I had the honor of documenting Elisa and Brian’s whimsical rainy wedding day in Boca Raton, Florida. Their day was not like any other wedding day we have ever captured. It was perhaps the sweetest, most joyful day we have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Not even Subtropical Storm Alberto could dampen their joy and excitement!

The initial plan was to say “I do” on the sandy shore of their favorite beach, Red Reef Beach in Boca Raton. But when the forecast called for a very stormy weekend they decided to move the ceremony indoors to the reception location at The Wyndham Hotel Boca Raton. The whole day day was filled with nothing but smiles (Andrew & I included)! Their smiles radiated and lit up the room! So much so that if it wasn’t for the rain drops you would think it was the brightest spring day!

When Brian first saw Elisa on their wedding day, he lit up and the biggest smile graced his face! He held his hand over his mouth in awe—completely wowed by his bride. It was the sweetest moment of the entire day. Brian and Elisa were caught up in the moment that was their wedding day and you could tell nothing would ruin it. This was because their priorities weren’t found in perfect details or the perfect weather, it was already as perfect as it could because they were marrying each other.

This is true love.

THIS is why we do what we do.

The Love Story

Brian and Elisa met where all true love blooms, the oh-so-hip and ever-trendiest salad buffet, Sweet Tomatoes. Elisa was visiting South Florida from Tallahassee, where she was finishing her graduate degree. That day she was having lunch with her new coworkers, which included Brian. Neither Brian nor Elisa remember saying more than a sentence or two to one another that day. However, the following month, during Elisa’s first week on the job, Brian was scheduled to take her along for a day in the field. It was then that they really began to hit it off!

During the following months, their friendship grew as they began to spend more and more time together outside of work. They went to the beach, belted Justin Timberlake songs in the car, and stayed up until 4AM chatting on Facebook. It was obvious to the people who knew them best that they were a match. One night, Elisa mustered up the courage to invite Brian over for dinner. Brian showed up, surprising Elisa with her favorite ice cream and they sat on her patio floor using a moving box as a table.

Elisa confessed her feelings for Brian and waited for his response to which he replied, “the feeling is mutual.” The rest, as they say, is history. On their four-year dating anniversary, Brian and Elisa decided together to take a sunrise-sunset trip, visiting both coasts of Florida in one day. They began by watching the sunrise over Red Reef Beach in Boca Raton and then proceeded to head west to Marco Island. There, they spent the day kayaking through a lagoon, eating old-fashioned ice cream and racing down water slides at their hotel.

They ended the day at Naples Pier where they watched the sunset over the Gulf, attempting to spot some dolphins. Then Brian took Elisa to a private bench overlooking the water and popped the big question as the sun was setting. They celebrated back at the hotel with Broski Cider as well as some Don Perignon and chocolate covered strawberries!

Special Thanks

Elisa & Brian, thank you so much for trusting us to document your big day! It was such a honor to witness your wedding day! You both bring out so much joy and love in each other–don’t ever let that go! In life, just like your wedding day, many thing won’t go according to plan and that’s okay.

Choosing to look past all the things that can go wrong and choosing to joyfully love one another is always the best way. In the end, we can’t control the outcome, just how we choose to react. Just like you embodied that concept on your wedding day, remember that five, twenty-five, fifty years from now. Couples like you are why we love what we do! We wish you all the best in this wonderful new season of life!
