Maury + Cara.

I will never forget the first time that I spoke with Cara (Cara is a designer and Maury is a video guy out in LA)...  she was planning a wedding across the country with her fiance Maury. We talked for a while about what she had in mind for her big day and I was sold...   Their destination wedding took place in a private backyard on a beautiful afternoon in San Marco, Florida.

Kelly and Blake

Blake and Kelly can be described with one word: adventurous. My time spent photographing them was amazing and gave me a chance to combine both of my loves - water and photography :)

Blake and Kelly's surfer engagement sess.

Kelly contacted me about doing her wedding photos and naturally I asked about doing an engagement session. She was sure Blake, her fiance, would think it was dumb so "it probably wouldn't work out". I knew that Blake and Kelly were surfers. I knew that they were awesome (Blake is a teacher and Kelly a sign language interpreter) and I knew they were going to love their engagement photos, I just had to get them in front of my camera.

Both of the shoots needed to complete this sess where adventures. We were knocked around my giant waves, were locked in the park for staying to late and had a rainstorm blow in during the pool session... but you know what? It is all part of the fantastic story they will tell their friends and family when they show these pictures off.

Here are a few of my favorites.
