Rachel + Erik | A wedding at citrus springs community center; lecanto, FL

Walking into the girls getting ready room on a wedding day typically makes me a little excited/anxious feeling – Kind of like walking into a brand new class at high school and you don’t know anyone yet, however when Shuli and I walked into Rachel’s house on her wedding day; we were greeted by faces we get to see every Sunday morning! (One of which was a bride I photographed last year!) and it was so wonderful to be surrounded by friends and get to celebrate another young couple in our church get married.

Even now as I write this, I’m listening to “dancing” by elevation worship which was their last dance song and I’m recounting how beautiful the entire wedding day was and how it didn’t feel like we were “shooting” a regular wedding but more like we got to attend a wedding with friends that we were also coincidentally enough shooting.

Rachel and Erik had an amazing traveling wedding; starting at her house to get ready, then to the ceremony which was held at Church of the Nazarene and the festivities came to a close at Citrus Springs community center in Lecanto, FL. Every carefully thought of detail was beautiful and intentional and the reception was an epic party with a ridiculously cool Photo Booth with video/audio messages, a jenga guestbook which will be a really neat future momento for family game nights, inside corn hole, and so much more.

The most heart warming part was the beautiful toasts that were given, from not two but six different people. There were tears and many laughs about that “old church van” but it couldn’t have been sweeter. You could visibly see the impact that Rachel and Erik have had on so many lives in their short years and to be able to capture for them the very beginning of their journey as husband and wife is such a blessing to us.

The night ended with the most gorgeous exit I think I have ever shot, in leu of sparklers they had bubbles and normally bubbles is what is used for day time weddings when sparklers can’t be seen but bubbles at night actually rock! So much so, I am now mentioning bubbles to every bride I have in the future because they came out so, so magical. Not to mention, you can have bubbles anywhere (inside, outside, no restrictions) it’s inexpensive and you can go through them multiple times! It’s absolutely genius.

I’m so thankful that we got to be the team they chose to document their very special day and that we get to continually see them at church, evolving and growing in their marriage. Praying blessing and wisdom over everything you do! The amount of things you will accomplish for the kingdom now as one flesh will be immeasurable. Enjoy these sneak peeks, and all vendors will be listed at the bottom!

Thank you for reading!

Be blessed,

Taylor & Shuli

Audrey + Tim | A Lakeside Ranch Wedding; Inverness, FL

On March 25th, 2023 Audrey and Tim officially became one at Lakeside ranch, in the glistening and glamorous big white barn! This wedding was a beautiful roller coaster of emotion – and yes, every wedding kind of is but this one especially thanks to a jam packed timeline of events;

There were 4 first looks planned; Audrey revealing her dress to the bridesmaids, a first look with her father and grandfather, Audrey doing another reveal to the groomsmen and Tim doing a reveal to the bridesmaids (mainly his sister Shannon) and 2 completely unplanned but wonderful moments of a first touch between Tim and Audrey through a door and my personal favorite, the “something blue” moment that was a handmade handkerchief gifted to Audrey from her sister with their relatives handwriting saying “I love you” stitched into it. Oh my gosh, the tears! The feels! Once one special moment happened we came down for a split second and then went right back up into another. It was so, so special!

What an adorable and genuine pair of souls Audrey and Tim make! I am so thrilled we got to be the team they chose to document their very sweet day. I loved the untraditional flower arrangements, the colors green and purple were absolutely perfect for what she had chosen – succulents – very fitting for a spring March wedding. Everything was just so amazing and came together perfectly from the weather and light to the heartfelt moments shared in the reception to Tim’s “Tennessee waterfall!” blowing in the wind for the getting ready pictures ahaha

It was fun, it was lovely and I hope it was everything they both dreamed it would be. Here are some of my favorites from the day and video will be following along soon! Woohoo! Thank you so much for having us ❀

Alison + Wilson | A wedding at The cotton press; little mountain, SC

Sitting down to write this now and I just feel an overwhelming feeling of “stuck” but not in a bad connotation kind of way, not like writers block or in hesitance – but in a wonderful and grateful and a “I cannot believe this is my actual life; I found the thing that ignites my soul in every way and I get to do this all the time for amazing couples – even states away from me. WOW, God you have been so, so good to me and I am so grateful!!!” kind of way… Maybe a better choice of words would have been “pause” instead of “stuck”Ahah.

Backstory, Alison was actually a high school classmate of mine before she was a client; we had one class together that I recall, which was journalism but she moved away from citrus county to South Carolina to pursue teaching after high school and that was how she met Wilson! To know them, is to love them. They are such a sweet and utterly adorable couple. They emanate their happiness between each other and it’s contagious! It was such a joy getting to be there with them and I couldn’t picture better people to travel to and serve. Everything I asked of them they were happy to do, even scrambling into every position in a small car known to man haha, and they extended so much kindness towards me like I was an honored guest or something for coming a long way. I would have traveled anywhere they needed though! πŸ˜‰

I remember the day she reached out to me to see if I would even go to South Carolina and without missing a beat it was an “ABSOLUTELY! Where and when?”

It has always been my dream to photograph, since I was 16 – I just love photography and seeing the reactions of the people I get to do it for – I just didn’t know how or what for a while, but second to photographing – the next closest has always been to travel; to see and experience places I wouldn’t have ever gotten to see otherwise – and when those two dreams or passions coincide it’s like I can literally FEEL how much the Lord loves me because it’s everything I have ever wanted and he knows the desires of my heart.

This wedding was in one word. “Stunning.” Everything about it radiated beauty. I was fascinated with this venue and asked the owner all about it. One, because I love old things and two because I am absolutely obsessed with look of the old brick in this building (I’m currently decorating my fireplace room the exact same way) The venue used to be an actual working cotton press mill built in 1904, the roof was taken off and replaced and the walls were the only thing standing, they used to drive trucks right through the middle of it on dirt! Such a cool, historic place to get married – The windows, the old brick, the hardwood floors, the really nice outside cocktail space all just so gorgeous. Alison and Wilson could not have picked a prettier place to get married!!

Everything went so smoothly, and perfectly according to plan except for the last event on the list, the grand exit to the get away car. It had started to rain and sweet Alison said of course I’m not going to make everyone stand out in the rain to send us off so the wedding coordinating team and I tried to devise a plan to set it up inside. This would not have been possible with sparklers BUT thankfully Alison and Wilson had already thought of a unique spin on this and had dried petals for guests to throw on them anyway. At the last second the rain turned into a soft, light mist and we had just the break we needed to do it outside like we had planned all along. It was so, so, so awesome!!

Also can I just say that South Carolina has some of the best food I have ever tasted. The BEST burger, the BEST cupcake of all time, the BEST pizza. It was all wonderful and I’m such a foodie – 5 stars!

Here are some sneak peeks that I pulled from first, and vendors are all located at the bottom! Thank you for reading ❀

Kessid + Jonathan | A wedding at Lakeside Ranch; Inverness, FL

Another beautiful lakeside ranch wedding is in the books and I was blessed enough to do it for a very special couple! I had known Kessid already from my church – she is not only our children’s pastor’s oldest daughter but she’s also been a leader at every kids camp/VBS event I’ve helped photograph in the last few years so I knew long before now what a sweetheart she is.

It’s the momma in me that makes me so elated she found a great guy like Jonathan to build a life with and the more time you spend with them the more perfect together they seem. P.S They met at church camp guys. I mean C’MON, it was meant to be!

While I’ve shot weddings at Lakeside many, many times this was actually my first morning/mid-day wedding; even with the very different lighting outside, I honestly loved it. Kessid and Jonathan had so many unique little spins on their day that just made it so cute and extra THEM.

Instead of dinner there was delicious coffee and brunch food. Because the first date they ever had was at a coffee shop. ❀ There was a flower girl but there was also a “rock boy” on account of Kessid having little twin siblings. An unforgettable donut cake. And one of the best wedding trends of all time; picture guest book with instamax polaroids.

Kessid and Jonathan’s joy and love for the Lord radiated throughout the whole day from her aunt, best friends and cousins praying with her before she got in her dress to my favorite part of their ceremony where they read personal vows and did communion together but then they had all their parents come up and lay hands on them and pray over them right before the ceremony concluded. Which I thought was just the most precious and special thing and I wish more people would do it!

It was a glorious day filled with so much love, I hope the love birds enjoy these sweet sneak peeks from their day and all the honeymoon cruisin’! I’ll list all the vendors at the bottom and thank you for reading!!

Be blessed,

Kara + Chris | A residential Wedding; Inverness, FL

Nestled deep in Inverness Florida there is a gorgeous piece of property that is Kara + Chris’s own slice of heaven, surrounded by greenery, animals and glistening sunlight it is actually a dream place to live and furthermore the most epic residential wedding spot I’ve gotten to photograph yet.

How sweet it is to find a love like Chris and Kara! These two kindred spirits were just made for each other in a special way. I got the privilege of meeting them for engagement pictures and they were a country dream, delight! The first thing I ever learned about them and I do think it is one of the most important; is how much they love their animals! The engagement pictures we took were either around their animals or on horseback and I honestly just love them so much for it. So of course, the only absolutely needed, and highly requested photo I take at their wedding would be one with their animals. I love the shots we got of Kara and her horse (whose name escapes me right now…) And the image of Macy the *golden child* retriever…. It was just darling in so many ways and you just can’t get that unless you have a wedding at your own home. There’s so many beautiful photos, that it’s really hard to choose what to share for the sneak peek without giving away ALL the magic hahah.

Also I wanted to mention the cutest thing that I have not seen a lot of yet; Was this clever text exchange that Chris and Kara did pre-ceremony. I got to see both of their reaction’s to each others love messages and it was the sweetest thing. To my knowledge it was kind of like a personal vow to each other but done privately.

Goodness what a lovely job Gloria with beautiful moments did with converting their property space into an outside reception and ceremony area. There were candle lit tables with beautiful florals, Warm market lights strung all over the space illuminating the dance floor, and all of this was under the stars outside in beautiful, non buggy weather. It was stunning. It was unforgettable. And it was a dream come true.

When the end of the night came and I said my thank you’s and goodbye’s to everyone; Kara’s mom Ellen, said to me:

“Kara was so adamant about having you as her photographer, she just would not consider getting anyone else – I just love the photos you took and thank you so much, you were wonderful.”

My heart melted, it’s just such an honor to serve people who value what you do that much. There’s so many photographers, so many truly talented photographers around even just this small little county and somehow God draws me to the right ones for me. In the words of my pastor and I’m going to apply it to me – I know it’s not biblical, but I think God loves me the most. πŸ˜›

Thanks for reading! And be blessed

SEIRRA! I’m pretty sure the horses name is seirra hahahah – I remembered!!!

Vanessa & Travis | A wedding at Fussell Farm; Millers Creek, NC

Oh man…THIS WEDDING YA’LL!! This was a special one to me – It was special and closer to my heart for a few reasons; For one, it was my first destination wedding I’ve ever shot! I had gone to Massachusetts to photograph my cousin’s wedding in 2018 but I don’t feel like I can count that because we’re related lol – just doesn’t carry the same kind of weight in my mind. For two, it was the first time I have ever been to North Carolina and my first time in a loooong time going up north during peak “fall season.” The beauty in North Carolina is absolutely unmatched. I spent almost all of my driving time from the airport to my hotel just gawking at the beautiful rolling hills filled with cows or goats, the vibrant golds, oranges and reds in all the trees and saying “wow!” at literally every house on every plot of land because they were all just stunning. It was incredible and not a for sale sign in sight might I add.

However, the biggest and most impactful reason – number three, the bride and groom is a couple I literally have grown up with as a photographer. They have stuck by me through pricing structure increases, editing changes and somehow when they could have picked anyone to be their photographer in North Carolina for their destination wedding – they chose me. Because they agreed it just wasn’t going to feel right with anyone else… and I’m still just so shook when I play that through my mind. How did I get so blessed to find people that view what I do as THAT important; GOD that’s how! Can I get an AMEN! Lol

By the grace of God, I got in contact with Vanessa around Christmas time 3 years ago. I remember she said she was new to the area and I think she found me on google – had three dogs and a boyfriend and wanted to get some cute family pictures done to make Christmas cards. What a blessing picking up that phone call became. She is in every way a woman I aspire to be like. She has the sweetest heart, the most contagious happiness that just pours out of her, the love she has for her family members AND Travis’s would make your heart melt and just her aura as a person is purely magnetic…like I feel privileged to know this girl – Wow, I just fangirled the heck out of Vanessa haha, Travis I think you are just as exceptional, and Vanessa is very blessed to have you in her life. Really though, they are that wonderful and thoughtful and I am so overjoyed for both of them because really Travis and Vanessa together as husband and wife makes all the sense in the world, they are absolutely amazing, kind and generous souls who deserve each other in every way and their love for each other just beams out of them. Furthermore, I hope they do rethink that “I can’t have kids, my dog’s are allergic.” thing because the world needs more people like Travis and Vanessa in it!! Lolol

Some of my favorite moments were the first look with dad and the epic 3 or 4 course dance routine they put together, Vanessa’s grandmother dancing at the reception and watching Travis’s reaction to Vanessa walking down the aisle.

The wedding itself was absolutely beautiful, every key aspect of it was perfect – the way it was decorated inside with all the lights and chandeliers, the loving little touches of their engagement photos on all the tables as centerpieces, the hot cocoa bar with all the fixings on a charcuterie board they really thought of every little thing… the location of Fussell Farms sits right in front of mountains so the ceremony scenery outside was just more gorgeous than you can even imagine. It was just a dream destination for a wedding and I say that lovingly, and not to boast because it has always been my dream to travel and to photograph – I don’t want anyone to read this and feel less than or overshadowed I wouldn’t ever want to make someone feel that way. However, everyone has dream jobs and ideal places they would love to visit someday and I just so happened to actually live one of mine out and I thank the Lord so much for it. I got to see the mountains, breathe the northern air again – I got to experience shooting a wedding in a brand new place with, people I just adore! Enjoy these sneak peeks and check out the vendors at the bottom – this was one for the books!

Love ya’ll!! I hope you’re having the time of your lives in Europe right now!

Emily & Gavin | A wedding at Lakeside Ranch; Inverness, FL

Emily and Gavin’s wedding day will be a Lakeside ranch wedding I won’t soon forget! From the beautiful dusty blue tones to the vibrant, fresh rain greens – you just have to see how beautiful overcast can be to believe it!

The day before Emily and Gavin’s wedding it was very rainy and that brought out the dark green colors that I love but thankfully what was forecasted to be 70% rain the day of turned into cloudy, windy and very chilly overnight, but NO rain! Grateful that even if it had rained the ceremony was completely covered so it wasn’t a big deal for one and two, it was so cold it actually probably would have snowed instead haha; and this silly Florida girl left her jacket at home – go figure.

However, even with the shivering cold temps Emily and Gavin lit each other up with love. Every time Emily saw Gavin there was a smile on her face that couldn’t be held in. The first look between bride and groom was like something out of a romantic comedy, Gavin said; “I will not turn around unless she calls me – Lord McCloskey” and he really didn’t, but it made it all the more heartwarming for them. Just look at his reaction! So sweet.

It’s rare that I show up and meet my bride and groom for the first time on their wedding day, but for Emily and Gavin it definitely didn’t feel like the first time. Emily was warm and kind hearted and so willing to do anything I asked of her. And Gavin was a goof ball who didn’t have a shy bone in his body lol. Both of them felt like old friends within minutes of meeting them and I’m so happy to have been chosen to photograph their gorgeous day! Even though we didn’t have the engagement session prep they were natural models and made it easy for me. Here’s some more beautiful photographs from their day, I especially love the images I took of their handsome little men, one of which at 5 years old gave a good little speech haha – I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks and make sure to check out the vendors listed at the bottom!

Vendor Team:

Amy & Kenneth | Sweetwater branch Inn; Gainesville, FL

Hello there!

New year, new me! I’m trying to stay on my blogging grind for 2020. So everyone say a real quick prayer I can stick to it! Thank you πŸ™‚


Amy and Kenny, Oh my word!! How sweet are they. Amy is truly the most laid back, go with the flow, happiest, kindest soul of a woman I’ve ever met. There is not a single person on this earth that could possibly not love and adore Amy. She was: no stress, no fuss x20. She told me she trusted me completely, and let me have my way where ever and whenever on her wedding day and there is only a few select people who can actually let that happen and she was one of them.

And dear Kenny, sweet as pie he must have said thank you to myself and the other vendors at least 5 times each. Thanking us for capturing the best day of his life for him and truly showing such appreciation for all the work each person put forth for their day. I’ve never witnessed a groom being more grateful than Kenny; and that just made me even more joyous to be there with them, and to give them the very best of what I could do as their photographer.

The two of them together just melts your heart…because you can feel that they love each other so deeply and they’ve just been through so much together in the years leading up to their marriage. They are unstoppable now as a united front, best friends who were just…destined to be.

I wish you both a lifetime of happily ever after!

This wedding was incredible, I had never shot at “Sweetwater branch Inn” in Gainesville, FL before but now I’m so happy to say that I have. I met some amazing new vendors that were easy to work with (List at the bottom of the post), I got to walk inside / photograph my very first Victorian style home, the weather was perfect, the garden was a dream spot for the ceremony and couple pictures. Everything was just so so magical, and historic and just filled with character I don’t think anything could have made it better. It was a really lovely place to get married. And hey, extra bonus. It’s also an Inn – so incase anyone of their guests had a little too much fun they could just rent a room to stay the night!

Thank you for reading now check out the PICTURES!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
