Mila

For the last five years in a row, I’ve been lucky enough to capture Mila’s birthday portraits!

She’s turned into quite the young lady, mixed with a little bit of wildness and sass that I absolutely love. We had a blast taking some photos in downtown St. Petersburg between the Dali Museum and the Mahaffey Theater.

Then we drove over to the climbing tree next to the Museum of Fine Arts, and finished off with some ice cream at the Cassis Bakery.

Here are some of my favorites from Mila’s super sweet and fun 5th birthday session!

Marina & Roman

Marina and Roman’s wedding on Sunset Beach in Treasure Island was one of the most unique weddings I’ve ever experienced. These two lovebirds were sweet, truly smitten and glowing with happiness nearly every minute, day and night.

Their bridal party was also a blast to work with. Marina’s bridesmaids were fun — and simply stunning! Just wait until you see the photos we took in the limo ride to the ceremony location! And the silly bunch of groomsmen had me laughing at least a couple dozen times. They couldn’t even stay serious for too long during the group shots!

This wedding was a great combination of abundant love, traditions and out-of-the-box characteristics. From the friend they had sing and play a song on a ukulele to a couple of guests who performed a ballroom dance, all the way to a sparkler exit, I enjoyed capturing such a unique and fun wedding.

Angelo & Sterling

For those of you who don’t already know me personally, here is a little backstory. I work at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, where I work in the marketing department — mainly focusing on the University’s website content and strategy, social media platforms and photography for event promotion/coverage.

Ever since I began my position back in late May, I have been in love with the fountain behind the campus building. Between the beautiful early morning/late evening light, the sprouting water and the blooming bougainvillea, it is a perfect spot for some unique portraits. Recently, when my co-worker Angelo proposed to his partner Sterling, I suggested taking photos for their engagement on campus. The results are simply beautiful.

Love is love is love is love.
