Tampa Wedding: Mr & Mrs Ruberto

I am truly blessed to have such an amazing group of friends & family… I’m always adding new people to my circle but jake is a lucky one that has been in the circle for a while now :)lets just say he was a college buddy who nick named me BIA BIA and made so many of my college memories great ones. I hadnt seen jake in a few years after we left fsu but we reconnected at a very close friends wedding in vegas and this is when i met mel!!!!  these two are prob. one of my most out going and friendly couples! jake contacted me  a few months after that wedding that he was coming in town and wanted to do an enagement session b/c they had gotten engaged..(which was a given b/c as soon as i saw them together i knew that they were meant for eachother… you know when two people just compliment eachother perfectly! :)hehe), i was like heck yea this adventure is going to be a great one…. engagement session was amazing (will post a blog soon) and the wedding was perfect…..I think the images will speak for themselves! Jake & mel thank you for trusting me with one of the most important days of your lives…. i thank you for making me a part of your lives… i love you both!

Truly Romantic Wedding: Dr. & Dr. Bolton

This is a wedding that I shot in Gainsville Florida over a year ago, I didnt have a blog then but I found it while looking through some files and I had to share it… Dr. Ami & Dr. Jeremy are two of the smartest and cutest couples I know. They both graduated from UF with Doctorates. They met at a friends party, decided to go for a walk, ended up on the steps of Hippodrome Theater (as seen below) and chatted all night til the sun came up… you can only imagine the instant connection they felt for eachother… only a couple of months later did Dr. Jeremy take Dr. Ami back to the steps to propose to her. So it was obvious that we had to do their first look there and rein-act that moment!!!! The whole day was perfect… the wedding took place at this quite Bed & Breakfast, where everyone who was from out of town stayed. The love and raw emotion these two shared with friends and family was unforgettable. I hope you enjoy these images, as much as I enjoyed shooting them. Congrats once again to you both Dr. & Dr. Bolton!

Sisterly Love: Xavier Girls!

couple of months ago my mom told me that my aunt, uncle, & 2 cousins were going to come visit…:)i was so excited b/c i havent seen them in about 5 years! my aunt and uncle only stayed for a few days but the girls stayed longer so we could go to the taylor swift concert (which will be a whole other blog post later on…) after my aunt & uncle left I decided i wanted to do a little photoshoot of the girls to surprise them.:)we went out to my backyard which is a golf course and just had a blast!!!! I will miss you two so so so much, thank you for filling my house with so many laughs these past few days…. I love you!
