While a drop-dead gorgeous wedding with all the bells and whistles can be great, it can also get pretty expensive and time consuming. Large elaborate weddings are wonderful, but they are not for everyone. If you’re someone who isn’t dying to have all the traditional aspects of a wedding day and is looking to have a smaller, more intimate ceremony with the love of your life, why not elope? And what better place to elope than the various jaw-dropping locations across the Colorado landscape? Check out our ultimate list of places to elope in Colorado, and find the perfect place to

top 5 details your wedding photographer shouldn't miss

Any wedding photographer out there should know not to miss the big moments—you know, the first kiss, the first dance, and all the other traditional events you’ll be listing out on your wedding day timeline. But what about the little things, the small details that combine together to truly make your day unique? When you’re shopping around for the right wedding photographer, be sure to remember these details when looking through their portfolios: The Rings One of my favorite items to capture is—of course—the bling! And not just because it’s often beautiful and glamorous. Your wedding and engagement rings are

Raven and I had a blast with her second underwater session, where we took photos on a somewhat gloomy day, that provided just enough overcast and rain for stunning results. While we took photos of her clownfish mermaid tail in our first underwater session (also pictured here), today we tried out another one with a dreamier mystical look, and I loved the bit of shimmer it offered in the soft light of the day. Raven is the owner and tail maker of Merbella Studios. She makes everything from mermaid tails and shell bras to head pieces and accessories for mermaids! Check

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is seeing families grow over time. I met Amanda a few years back when her son Talan had just turned one. We had a blast taking some photos on the beach of Talan and his older sister Savannah on the beach. Flash forward to 2016 and Amanda’s family has grown by one more! To celebrate Sadie’s first birthday, we took a few photos of her and the rest of the Lindquist family at Emerson Point Preserve, a beautiful park with fun trails near the water. Take a look at a few of

This is another post out of the archives, but it’s a great one! Below are my favorite shots from Kylie’s first birthday cake smash session. I loved her adorable pink and gold tutu, as well as her matching pink and gold balloons! We took these photos a few months before her parents (also close friends of mine) Austin and Ashley got married at the Tampa Bay Downs! You can see the photos from their country-style wedding here. Austin and Ashley have raised such a sweet baby. I hope you enjoy these first birthday portraits! Kaitlyn at Katogenic Photography is a

Today I’m pulling from the archives a bit to highlight an oldie but a goodie! This early-morning maternity session at Fort DeSoto Beach was with one of my favorite clients to work with: Amanda and her family. Amanda’s two children, Talan and Savannah, were both extremely excited for their baby sister, Sadie, to arrive. We spent a few minutes taking some gorgeous, warmly-lit photos of Amanda by herself, but had to capture some with Talan and Savannah as well as Amanda’s husband Ryan. Since then, we have also had a blast capturing Sadie’s 6-month-old photos and her 1st birthday portraits! And

Not only did I attend high school with Ashley and Seth, but they are high school sweethearts who have now been together for ten years! Together, they now have a talkative, curious son named Avery, who enjoyed looking at my lenses and asking about my fancy camera. We had so much fun with their downtown St. Petersburg session, where we walked down one of the most colorful, street-art-filled alleyways before heading over to Beach Drive to get a few more photos in the park. The weather was perfect for a session with some old friends in our beautiful hometown. Check

You never know who you’ll meet these days, especially with the growth of social media. I met Kami and her sister Merissa though Instagram. We connected through messenger about doing an underwater session with a great thrift-store find: a wedding dress! Despite being an extremely cold, rainy January day in Florida, we jumped in. It was one of the coldest underwater sessions to-date — and that says a lot after having done a session at Weeki Wachee a few months ago! We decided to take the dress (along with another thrift-store prom dress) for a swirl underwater. Now, I’ll be dreaming

Evan and I have a mutual best friend, Kelsey, through whom we met about ten years ago. We used to spend a decent chunk of our teenage days hanging out by the pool at Kelsey’s place, laughing the night away. I was beyond excited when Evan told me she wanted me to capture their wedding day — creating these keepsake images for those I’ve known for years means the world to me. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to witness these two lovebirds join together in such a beautiful ceremony (and celebration!). This day was filled with laughter,

Ever since I tried my first underwater photography session six months ago, I’ve been dreaming of doing an underwater maternity session. And when one of my friends from a class in college announced she was pregnant with her second child, I leaped for the chance and asked if she’d be my first underwater maternity model. The results were all that I could have hoped for! Take a look at what we were able to create to capture this special moment in her life with the photographs below.
