Sunset Shoot

It was a lovely afternoon out at the Hope Pavilion in Ponte Vedra Beach. The sun was setting beautifully as you could feel the love in the air. Before the shoot, Elizabeth and Chris informed me that this shoot would be completely top secret—and that I would have the honor of sharing their news with everyone through this blog. So without further a-due, A BIG Congratulations to Elizabeth and Chris on their recent Engagement! You guys are awesome! I am so excited for the wedding day on Cinco de Mayo! :)

Kelly & Kurt

A Shoot at KONA

It was a rainy day at Kona skatepark. I was nervous at first because the weather wasn't looking so promising, but when Kelly and Kurt showed up they brought the sunshine! I really enjoyed working with these two. They are both crazy about each other, so capturing their happiness on camera was a breeze. 

When they brought up the idea of shooting an engagement session at Kona, I was stoked because it was a first for me. Even the person working at Kona told us that she had never seen an engagement session done there. I even had the pleasure of seeing Kurt bust out some moves on the ramp. 

Congratulations Kelly and Kurt on your recent engagement! 

Jessica + Martin + Geordie

Picnic at the Park

This fun little shoot with Jessica, Martin, and Geordie was located in Memorial Park in Riverside. When they showed up to the shoot, the weather was starting to scare us a little. There were storm clouds in the distance and you could hear thunder. But, luckily for us, the storm passed by and the sun peeked out.  

Location: Memorial Park

Camera: Nikon D810

Lense: Nikon 70-200mm 2.8

BJ & TC

It was a pleasure shooting the wedding of these two love birds. The weather was perfect, the band was amazing, and ultimately I had the opportunity to capture the sweetest couple ever! It was ABSOLUTE perfection! Congratulations you two!

The Mighty Konstantin

This was a self made studio shoot that I did of a buddy named Konstantin. We shot in my home in Jacksonville, FL. I used a few clamp lights and a PVC frame with a black curtain backdrop. This was my first time shooting as if I were in a photography studio setting. It was a slight challenge for me because, it was my first time creating drama with artificial light. These are a few of my favorite shots from the portrait shoot. Konstantin is hoping to become a model and he is actively searching to become one. If you or anyone you know is interested in using him as a model, please let me know, and I will direct you to him. 

The Volstead in Downtown Jacksonville

The Volstead in Downtown Jacksonville

This past week I had the pleasure of shooting at The Volstead in downtown Jacksonville. These photos were for a blog called Keith Connects. Keith Connects is a weekly blog that taps into the urban-core of Jacksonville. The blog features Artist, Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Bars, and Restaurants. A special thanks to the owners of The Volstead for welcoming us into their bar to capture their amazing environment. Also, a special thanks to Sam Linn (owner) for spitting fire! 

Amanda and Matt

This was from a fun photoshoot at Hanna Park in Jacksonville.  The Couple, Amanda and Matt, are two really awesome people. It was such a pleasure rolling around in the sand capturing their love for one another through my lens. I'm so happy for this beautiful couple, and I can't wait for their wedding day!
