On Thursday, April 26th, 2018, Andrew and I had the honor of working with the Mukhatiyar Family again during their vacation in Palm Beach, from Long Island, New York. Last year we had the pleasure of working with them and we enjoyed seeing them again! It was so fun to see how big the boys had grown in just a year!
This year we captured their family vacation photos on the elegant street of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida. Their session took place in the westward parts of Worth Avenue. This sweet little family is too cute for words. We had such a wonderful time capturing their family vacation portraits again this year!
Mukhatiyar Family, thank you for choosing us to document your first and second trips to South Florida! It was our pleasure documenting your Worth Avenue family vacation portraits! We hope to work with you again!
Aren’t they just the cutest little family!? Having fun on the stairs. Cuties! Mommy and son. A few of my favorite silly moments!

Worth Avenue Engagement Photos in Palm Beach, Florida
On December 23rd, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Marlena and Drew’s Worth Avenue engagement photos! These two are the cutest together! We had such a great time strolling along the street of Worth Avenue with them as we chatted about their wedding!
Their session began towards the westward part of Worth Avenue and ended on the beach. They had two outfits, a dressy and a casual one. Since Drew is in the Air Force he wore his sharp uniform for his first outfit and Marlena wore a gorgeous white dress. For their second look they went with a casual outfit perfect for sunset portraits on the beach.
Marlena and Drew, thank you for choosing us to document your engagement photos! It was such a pleasure working with you both! We wish you all the best in this exciting season of wedding planning!

On Sunday, July 31st Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Juan & Kacie’s Worth Avenue vacation photos during their time in Palm Beach, Florida. Juan & Kacie are from central Florida and decided to visit West Palm Beach for a relaxing vacation getaway. Juan is a youth pastor and Kacie is a preschool teacher; together they make an adorable couple.
We began our session on the Westward part of the iconic Worth Avenue capturing some colorful lifestyle portraits. Afterwards, we strolled down Worth Avenue to the beach for a few beach portraits! While we walked down to the beach we chatted about life and realised we had many things in common. One funny coincidence we found out is we all attend a church with the same name. Different but with the same name!
Juan and Kacie, you are such a sweet couple and it was a pleasure working with you both! Andrew and I hope you enjoy your portraits and the rest of your vacation here is South Florida.

On Monday, May 9th I had the pleasure of capturing Jaisa and Bruce’s Worth Avenue engagement session! This session is filled with many colorful Palm Beach scenes and joyful moments! Jaisa and Bruce’s shoot was a special one because they brought their adorable son Bruce Jr.! This little guy who is five years old was so well behaved and such a cutie! He plays a unique role because he is actually the reason Jaisa and Bruce met in the first place!
Bruce and Jaisa, met about three years ago. Jaisa worked at a daycare where Bruce Jr. attended when he was two years old. Jaisa fell in love with this sweet little boy and when she met his daddy it was love at first sight. Even though Jaisa did not really believe in such a thing, their relationship bloomed quickly. Soon after their first date she knew he was the one she wanted to spend forever with. After nine months together, Jaisa was invited to Bruce’s family Christmas vacation to Walt Disney World! It was a special trip but what made it even more magical is on December 25th, 2013, Bruce popped the big question, in front of Cinderella’s castle! Jaisa told me, “It was just magical and an unforgettable moment.” Now, after a two-year engagement and a three-year relationship, they are excited to be tying the knot on December 10th, 2016! Jaisa said these past three years raising Bruce Jr. together have been amazing. I can tell they are so excited for this new season of their lives! They are such a beautiful family!
Jaisa and Bruce, thank you so much for choosing us to capture your engagement photos and you wedding day! Andrew and I are so excited to be a part of your big day!

Their Love Story
Jessica and Trey met in Hawaii, though he was originally from Maryland and she was from Kansas. Trey moved to Hawaii in 2010 and in June of 2014 he started working for Ko’ Olina Golf Club. He loved that this job gave him the flexibility to go to school and play free golf at one of the nicest courses on the island.
Jessica moved to Hawaii in July of 2014. She immediately began applying for jobs but was finding it very difficult to find a job in Hawaii. After a few months of searching, she finally found one. It just so happened to be the very same golf course where Trey worked at! Jessica knew absolutely nothing about golf and had absolutely no idea what an OGS person would even do, but it was a job! On her first day, Trey came up and introduced himself. Her first thought was, “Finally! Someone close to my age who’s from the mainland!”
Jessica told me, “It wasn’t anything like love at first sight, but more like friends at first sight.” Trey ended up training Jessica and he had her laughing the whole entire time. She felt like they had been friends forever, and it wasn’t long before they started hanging out after work occasionally.
One of their first dates was on the North Shore where they took some wine down to the beach and looked at the stars. During their date and Trey said, “How incredible is it that a guy from Maryland and a girl from Kansas meet in the middle of the ocean after all of these years?” Then he kissed her for the first time and they have been together ever since.
Jessica ended up going back to Kansas in November 2015 to visit her family and friends for a week. After she got back to Hawaii they started talking about getting married. One afternoon they went to a ring shop to look and see, and he ended up ordering something that day. Jessica told him that since she knew it would be coming she wanted to be surprised once the ring was ready and have a romantic proposal.
Well…. she couldn’t wait, once she found out that he had picked up the ring she told him she didn’t really need anything super romantic. The next day he ended up getting down on one knee in their kitchen and asked her to marry him! She was so incredibly excited that it felt like she didn’t even know it was going to happen.
