If you had told me a few years back that I would be photographing an engagement session just feet away from my childhood home, I would’ve called you crazy. But LIFE is crazy, not us! When my super fun Richmond couple Lauren and Zach told me that they were moving to South Florida I was super excited. I then became ecstatic when they told me they chose DELRAY BEACH.. MY HOMETOWN! After debating Virginia locations for their engagement session Lauren finally asked “why don’t we just do a Florida engagement session?”

I’ve known Lara since our high school, Freshman year Biology class. That was almost 15 years ago!! It is surreal for me that I am actually posting these photos. So much time has passed and our friendship has stayed just as strong ever since we were teenagers. I am beaming from ear to ear for her and Louis as they expect their first child: baby girl Olivia.

Ashton and Marc are a modern day love story. The two met online during a time when Marc was finishing physical therapy school in St. Augustine. Ashton had just moved back to Jacksonville when she got promoted by Tiffany & Co. eventually leading this multi-city couple to their new home in Naples. Marc proposed at the end of August 2017 at The Marco Beach Ocean Resort– the spot they chose for their very wedding venue!

These are some of my favorite images I have ever snapped. In looking at these, I sometimes still cannot believe I took them! It is as if these photos stepped right out of my brain onto this screen. I grew up 30 minutes away from The Colony in Palm Beach. I have always dreamed of shooting bridal beauty in this hotel’s iconic hallways. I adore a classic Palm Beach wedding. To top it all off, The Colony is only a walk away from the historic Worth Avenue. Rachel and Eric were just adorable on and off camera and really made this vision come to life! I am so thrilled that these images were also shared by Inside Weddings on their blog to millions of readers!

I definitely have a tad bit of biased favoritism towards this couple! Not only because they are having a stunning idyllic wedding in Italy that I get to photograph this fall but also because I have known Andrew since he was a little kid! I used to have sleepovers at the Jones’s house all the time in high school. Lara’s little brother would be running around with the dogs and poking fun at all our girly slumber party activities. Over ten years later, he is all grown up and getting MARRIED!

Every year, I have couples asking me the best place for engagement photos. Whether I’m in DC or Palm Beach, I wanted to always have an answer to these inquiries! Because I am from Delray, I feel like it was almost harder for me to compile this list because I think every street is special because it has a memory; but the most picturesque settings are below!

It’s not every day that your best friend gets married. Lara and I sat next to each other in Mr. Hock’s freshman Biology class. We were probably the only 2 people both wearing some shade of pink and listened to Relient K. Needless to say, we became fast friends. Although we are very different people (she’s the Betty to my Veronica), we’ve remained close for over a decade. We would get together on holiday breaks form school and even met up for weekly lunches when we were both doing glamorous internships in New York City. It only made sense that we would get married months apart.
