These two. How can I begin? They are just radiating love. From their smiles, laughter, hugs and squeezes, you can tell they are truly meant to be. We had a blast shooting together on a beautiful Portland day when the weather was just absolutely perfect. Between seeing a few goose friends to enjoying all of the […]

Dana’s friend, Zubaida, found me and asked me to take photos of the engagement celebration for Dana and Haider. It took place at Oasis Lebanese Cuisine in Hillsboro and the night was perfect in every way. I was amazed at how beautiful Dana and Haider were. They definitely made my task of taking portraits outside very […]

Soon Hui and Shu Xian were married just last Sunday and then jumped right into the long flight process from Singapore to Orlando for their honeymoon.

Let’s talk about those times when I just don’t want to stop taking pictures! Time blissfully floats along in those moments, especially when there’s a perfect, cool breeze from the lake and I happen to be taking photos of a fantastic couple like Andrea and Colton. We smiled, laughed and danced our way across the […]

Meeting the Arrowood family for an engagement photo session with a bit of family portraits mixed in was so much fun. Grandma was able to take their precious daughter for ice cream while Courtney and Andrew had some alone time for gorgeous, and I really mean gorgeous, photos. Courtney knew the exact style of photos […]

Angela and Mike are the sweetest and most fun couple! They were here in Orlando celebrating their four year anniversary and we met at Downtown Disney to take photos and take advantage of some autumn and Halloween scenery. That was very fitting since they both love Halloween. It’s actually Angela’s favorite holiday and they were […]

I was so excited when I received an email from Hevin a few months ago about her upcoming trip to the Disney World Contemporary Resort. Hevin is a wedding planner at Story Weddings and Events in the Sherwood Park and Edmonton area of Alberta, Canada. So we were bonding immediately through our conversations. I learned […]

“Love is not an equation, it is not a contract, and it is not a happy ending. Love is the slate under the chalk, the ground that buildings rise, and the oxygen in the air. It is the place you come back to, no matter where you’re headed.” ― Jodi Picoult Simply, those words describe […]

They needed photos for the holidays and I captured “winter” memories for them, Florida style, in the best ways I know how.
