Jill & Brett Are Engaged | South Florida Wedding Photographer

Jill & Brett's engagement session almost didn't happen because of . . .  well, you know, rain.   But that's South Florida in the summer for you.  So we brought umbrellas, found some cover, and worked it out!  And we laughed and laughed.  I should record these sessions, because some of these conversation are too funny not to share!  Thank you guys for being awesome, gorgeous and funny!  I am one lucky girl.  Seriously. Best. Clients. Ever. And peeps, leave some comments!  25 comments = 5x7 for Jill & Brett on me; 50 comments = 8x10.

Thank you random surfer guys for humoring me!  I couldn't resist the symmetry when I saw them standing like this._MG_7801-Edit_MG_7810-Edit_MG_7844-Edit_MG_7861-Edit

Here's where we got officially reprimanded by the Jupiter Police Department.  I think they thought it was unsafe.  I have to admit, I felt a little proud.  Yes, I'm a dork like that ;)_MG_8144-Edit

Fred Astaire Jupiter Grand Opening | South Florida Photographer

In July I had the pleasure of attending the Grand Opening Party at Fred Astaire Jupiter's brand new dance studio.  The new studio is much larger with high ceilings and beautiful windows.   It was a great event where the pro teachers at the studio put on a mini-show to demonstrate the classic ballroom and latin dances.  The highlight of the night was the attendance of Dancing with the Stars' Tony Dovolani.  Tony shared some of his experiences on the show and then taught the group how to "move their hips".   It was quite the treat and Tony is the ultimate gentleman.  If possible, he's even nicer in person than he seems on the show. If you've ever wanted to learn how to dance the Tango, the Samba, the Waltz, or any of the other ballroom & latin dances, there's no better place in South Florida, than Fred Astaire Jupiter.  And you never know, you might just run into Tony Dovolani, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, or Corky Balass.  They've all been known to drop in and teach a lesson or two.  My good friends Warren & Babette, who own the studio, are also opening one in Boynton Beach, so if you're a little further south, that will soon be the place to go.

And don't forget, they offer a Wedding Package, so you can look like a pro during your first dance as husband and wife!

Baby Makes Three | West Palm Newborn Photographer

Last month I had the honor of photographing my friend's (and fellow photographers) brand new baby boy.    Rebekah & Ben Hood are a fabulous husband and wife wedding photography team and their brand new little angel is the sweetest little boy.  He's got awesome hair and the cutest cheeks you've ever seen.  We started with some shots at their home and then headed to Babies 'R' Us to attempt a crazy idea I had without getting kicked out of the store (success!).  We had plans to continue at a local park, but the crazy South Florida weather had other ideas.    But yay for me, because I get to hang with them again when we do the second half of their session soon.  Love you guys!   Thanks for your patience during my blogging hiatus. _mg_6525-edit-2_mg_6530-edit_mg_6541-edit_mg_6543-edit_mg_6552-edit_mg_6567-edit_mg_6575-edit_mg_6588-edit_mg_6589-edit

I commandeered one of those huge ladders to stand on to get this shot, so Ben had to go distract the sales lady so we wouldn't get busted :)

And here's that crazy weather I mentioned . . . it was almost hurricane-like._mg_6607-edit

Dave & Diann Engagement, Part 2 | South Florida Wedding Photographer

I seriously have the best clients!  Dave and Diann were so easy to work with; laid back, down to earth and totally cute with each other!   They are getting married at the beautiful new W hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, so we took some shots in their amazing "lobby", which they call the Living Room.  It's such a cool space and the entire hotel is absolutely beautiful. _mg_2460-edit1
