I am very excited to announce that I am offering something very special this summer...our VERY FIRST Kids Photography Summer Camp located in the Fruit Cove area of Jacksonville, FL!!!

This July and August I will be teaching a 2-week Monday, Wednesday, and Friday session for children ages 7-12. Classes begin at 10am and end at 2:00pm.

Erin and Billy So In Love!!!

Last night I fell in love! I fell in love with this awesome couple, Erin & Billy. The entire time I photographed them it was so OBVIOUS how much in love Billy is with Erin. I just love it when I see passion, appreciation and love between two people. Billy met Erin and immediately said, "I HAD TO HAVE HER!". After they departed from the first time they met and without having a way to contact her, he went on an VERY determined journey to find her again. He went to the mall three weekends in a row hoping to run into her again (he had seen her at the mall before) and with no success he was not easily ready to give up his mission; therefore, his friend suggested he try to find her on Facebook. To his JOY he found her within 5 minutes! Billy spent a long time drafting his friend letter to send her on Facebook. Wanting it to be just perfect he waited till the right moment to send it. His patience and perseverance paid off because now they are to wed on October 11, 2008!

Meghan and David

Meghan and David's wedding was just absolutely STUNNING! Their colors were my favorite wedding colors: hot pink and hot green. The palette was so amazing that even my camera shouted "WOW!". The details in their wedding were special, fun and unique. Every where we went we found special things they put together. Everyone kept talking about what a a gorgeous wedding this was, I think you will see why!

Meghan and David's wedding was held in Amelia Island at the fabulous Ribault Club with Meghan's bridal preparations held at the very classy Hoyt Bed and Breakfast House

Between Lorna Meehan, their very talented wedding coordinator, who did a phenominal job and the rockin' band who blew everyone away with their music, Blue Stone Circle, I'd say this is one of those weddings people will be talking about for a long time!
