West Palm Beach Family Vacation Photos at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island
On March 27th, 2018, Andrew and I had the pleasure of working with the Gier during their vacation to South Florida! This stunning family reached out to us to capture some new family portraits for their time on the beach! We had such a wonderful time capturing and working with this beautiful family!
Their West Palm Beach family vacation portraits were taken at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island. It was a gorgeous afternoon, but also a very windy one. Battling the wind was a bit of a challenge, to say the least, but the splashing waves in the background made it all worth it! This family session may very well be a new favorite!
Gier Family, thank you so much for choosing us to document your family vacation memories! It was truly an honor meeting and working with you all! We hope to work with you again!

A Tropical Downtown West Palm Beach Wedding at the Lake Pavilion in West Palm Beach, Florida
On Saturday, February 17th, 2018, Andrew and I had the honor of documenting Alex and Kirsten’s tropical downtown West Palm Beach wedding. This breezy spring wedding ceremony was held on the waterfront dock and the reception took place at the Lake Pavilion in Downtown West Palm Beach, Florida. The inspiration for their wedding was elegant and modern Palm Beach. They brought their vision together with soft rose hues and a tropical flair. They even included their adorable golden doodle named Ziggy. This was one gorgeous tropical wedding day from beginning to end!
Their Love Story:
Kirsten and Alex first met on April 30th, 2011, in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was a Saturday night and they were both meeting up with a mutual friend for a house party at the University of Cincinnati. After their eyes met for the first time, they spent the rest of the evening waiting for an opportunity to talk and get to know one another. When that moment finally came, they felt an instant connection while sharing drinks on an old, raggedy loveseat in the driveway.
They began dating and eventually moved to South Florida together in October of 2013. After moving, Alex immediately began working for an e-commerce company where he continues to helps manage one of their key accounts. Kirsten attended and recently graduated from Nova Southeastern University with a Master’s degree in Medical Science. She now works as a Physician’s Assistant for a family medicine office.
The Proposal Story:
After five years of dating Alex was ready to pop the big question! On September 17th, 2016 in Jupiter, Florida, he did just that! For several weeks Alex had been telling Kirsten his company was planning an “employee and family photo shoot” for their new line of sunglasses.
Unfortunately, the date of the “shoot” was the only Saturday that Kirsten was scheduled to be at her Internal Medicine rotation at Nova. Two days prior to the proposal, Kirsten’s instructor looked over the schedule and told her she no longer needed to come into the office because there were no interesting cases. Alex was thrilled that she could go to the “shoot”.
They got up that day and prepared for the 10:00 am shoot. His “boss” kept calling all morning to discuss the photographer, the location, etc. The original plan had been to meet at Coral Cove at 9:45am, but then the location changed to the Jupiter Lighthouse. The lighthouse employees said they had some time to check out the top of the lighthouse before the photographer arrived. A little reluctantly, Kirsten agreed to go to the top. The view was amazing and they were soaking it all in when Alex got down on one knee and popped the question!
There was never a sunglass photo shoot and Alex had convinced Kirsten’s instructor to give her the day off without giving away the surprise! The surprises continued when they went to Alex’s parents house to share the good news. Alex had arranged for Kirsten’s mother and stepfather to travel from Ohio to help celebrate the occasion!
Kirsten and Alex, thank you for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of being a part of your gorgeous wedding day! It was such an honor to work with you both! We wish you all the best in this wonderful new season!
All the pretty details. Kirsten, you are so gorgeous!! That bouquet was perfection.Ziggy posing in the back seat with Kirsten! The handsome groomsmen. Then it was time for the first look at the Palm Beach Lake Trail next to the Flagler Museum! These two are professionals at the dip! How gorgeous is this bridal party!?
Picture perfect. Then it was time for the wedding ceremony! Their mothers gave them their first kiss, so they invited them to give them their last kiss before they say “I do.” How sweet is that!? The gorgeous tropical wedding reception decorations. Then it was party time! Toasts! Then we ended the night with cake!

If there is one thing I love it’s capturing gorgeous families while enjoying their vacation! Capturing family memories is such an honor to me because these are the moments my clients will look back on and the photos I capture will become precious, tangible memories they will hold onto for many years to come.
These past few years I have noticed vacation photos are becoming more and more popular! Last year alone we captured over a half a dozen family vacation sessions! This year we are hoping to exceed last year and we are off to a great start!
On January 20th, 2018, we had the honor of capturing these family vacation portraits in Palm Beach, Florida. This was our first session of the year! It was a very cloudy and windy day but the lighting was gorgeous! Early that day there was a Trump protest but by the afternoon there was hardly anyone on the beach!
It was such a pleasure working with this sweet family! We hope they enjoy their family portraits for many years to come!

On December 27th, 2017, I had the pleasure of capturing some dreamy Palm Beach family vacation portraits on Palm Beach Island. It was such a pleasure working with this gorgeous family! They were vacationing in Palm Beach for two weeks during Christmas and New Years break and decided to hire us to document their vacation memories.
The family met here in Palm Beach from all over the world. Some came from New York, New Jersey, California, Hawaii and some even came all the way from Brazil! It was such an honor meeting and working with this large family during their family vacation!
One of my favorite parts of their session was at the very end. The sun was setting and the sky became filled with dreamy pastel colors. We decided to end the session with a jumping shot. I was skeptical that it would work with fifteen people but I was excited to try it. So we did and it turned out to be amazing! It easily became my one of my favorite shots of the day!
These last few shots were my favorites! The sky that evening was incredible!

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!

We began our session on the lush green golf course at the Breakers! Those happy smiles! Then we walked over to the courtyard and captured a few portraits in front of the fountain! The light was SO DREAMY!!
Then we did a few more in front of the grand fountain in front of the Breakers Palm Beach resort! Because their engagement at the Breakers Palm Beach wouldn’t be complete without a few shots in this amazing spot! I love this spot!
Then we headed to the beach right before sunset. Ryan gave Katie his great grandmother’s gorgeous heirloom ring! It is incredible!! The beach was so dreamy that evening. A few rain clouds were coming in creating a soft sky and cool breeze! Katie’s, Lilly Pulitzer dress was flowing so perfectly in the wind! I love how soft and peaceful the beach looks on a cloudy day. Katie’s amazing engagement ring again! One of my favorite photos! I love how you can almost feel the breeze flowing and their sweet love!
