Vilano Beach Engagement Session

July 29, 2022


Robyn and Robert’s Vilano Beach engagement session was a highlight of my week! There is nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my couples on the beach!

Before their Vilano Beach engagement session, Robyn had reached out to me in the spring about photographing their August elopement at the Bayfront Marin House in St. Augustine, Florida. Of course I jumped at the chance to document their special day! Whenever I have the chance, I love to meet with my couples before their big day. Getting to know each other beforehand always helps make the wedding day portraits a little easier. I get to know how they work together as a couple and they learn how I work as a photographer. Simplifies several things and just makes it more fun!

Robert and Robyn were game for whatever location so I suggested the beach for their session. Because some on, when is the beach ever a bad idea? 😂 We met during high tide as the sun was dipping down, but we got the portraits I was hoping to get! These two are so flippin’ adorable and comfortable with one another, which made my job pretty easy!

The couple chose the Bayfront Marin House for their elopement because it’s beautiful! In addition, the Marin House makes it SO easy to have the micro-wedding of your dreams.

Luckily, these two cuties are totally flexible and did everything I asked during their session. Robert twirled, dipped, and carried his soon-to-be-bride which is every photographer’s dream! 😂 We love movement in photos, not super posed and stiff images. Robert and Robyn absolutely understood the assignment. 😂

I am eagerly awaiting the couple’s upcoming vows in St. Augustine! Check back soon for their wedding day post! I know it’s going to be an incredible day! 🤍

When my husband, Jeff, and I were planning our wedding, we hired a photographer whose work was beautiful. Fast forward a few months, she ghosted us. Took our money and vanished. Two months before our wedding, I'm panicking, trying to find another photographer who was available on our very popular date- 10/10/10, and whose work didn't completely suck. I was laughed at over the phone by one photographer, whose name I will withhold but will FOREVER remember. He obviously thought my desperation was amusing, but I couldn't see the humor through my enormous tears. 

After having already spent our entire photography budget, I was forced to hire the only person who was left available, and for fairly cheap. He definitely over-promised + under-delivered. It was a sad experience, one I never want you to have to go through, which is why I am so passionate about ensuring my couples have the MOST amazing wedding photography experience humanly possible, with me.

If you are looking for a photographer who values YOU and your entire wedding photography experience, I'm your girl.
I will be by your side, making sure you feel totally comfy + content while you're in front of my lens. I promise your wedding day photos will be timeless, beautiful, and everything you've dreamed of.

I honestly can't wait to meet you, so get in touch and let's do this! 

If you have found your way to me, it's probably because you've been searching for the right photographer, but none of the others have felt like 'the one'. I get it. I've been there, done that.
