Emily and Josh's Vizcaya and Temple Beth David Wedding

"We chose to take our first look photos with just the two of us at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami. We loved how Kat choreographed our first look. We both held hands, with our backs lined up against each other, and we turned around at the same time so we could each have a “first look.” It was a really special and emotional moment that we’ll remember forever." ~ the bride

A Look Back at 2012

2012 was a year of travel, a year of inspiration, a year of fine tuning my voice, a year of finding that my voice is clearest when it talks in a square.  I'm proud of what I've accomplished, but also very humbled by how far I have to go.  I'm thankful for every single client that trusted me to document your 2012 memories; for letting me in to your world, for letting me feel the love and warmth of your family and friends.   Most importantly, I'm thankful for my husband and my kids; they have sacrificed a lot to let me do what I love.

(A few images above were taken while shooting with Jessica Lorren, Laura Leslie, Kyle Hepp and Sergio Mottola - thank you all for the opportunity!)

All images were shot on film and developed and scanned by the amazing people at Richard Photo Lab.


The Baptism After-Party at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami

After the baptism, the crowd headed over to the fabulous Viceroy Hotel on Brickel Avenue in Miami.  What a cool spot!  The party was held up on a rooftop patio area called the "Fireplace".  I think it's safe to say everyone had a great time.  I highly recommend the Viceroy!  Very cool and unique architecture and style and the food was absolutely fabulous.

Baptism | St. Jude's Church Miami

Last weekend I had the pleasure of documenting the Baptism of a very special little girl at St. Jude's Catholic Church in Miami.   It was such an honor to be a part of this event that brought together family and friends for this ancient ritual.  I love how tradition and modernity were woven together throughout the ceremony.   After, they had a pretty rockin' party at the gorgeous Viceroy Hotel on Brickel Avenue in Miami.  But I couldn't narrow these down and do this part of the story justice, so the party photos will be part of another blog post. _MG_4287-Edit_MG_4288-Edit_MG_4329-Edit_MG_4355-Edit
