I just acquired a 35mm film camera as the beginning of my venture into shooting with film. So right now I’m just using it for personal projects and travel. In September my husband and I went to the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in St. Augustine to see one of my favorite bands, Mumford and Sons. We stayed on St. Augustine Beach and the concert was at a field downtown so we really enjoyed all that St. Aug has to offer. Here are a few of my film snaps from the weekend.
In case you were wondering, Mumford was AMAZING! I laughed, sang, cried, and danced. Amazing.

I don’t even know where to begin with this wedding. So many special moments with special friends and family. All of the details were 100% DIY. Lindsay’s grandma made her gorgeous one of a kind dress, Lindsay and her mom made all of the centerpieces, her mom’s friends made all of the tasty desserts, Yoel made a dessert tower, and Lindsay made the bouquets. Lindsay’s brother drove the girls to the ceremony in his school bus that he has converted into a home that he travels the country with his friends in. So much love and energy was put into this couple’s big day and it just shone through everyone and everything. These images make me smile, laugh, and cry so I hope they do the same for everyone who witnessed this beautiful day.
The girls got ready at Marriott’s Ocean Pointe on Singer Island. The ceremony and reception were located at the Bonnette Hunt Club in Palm Beach Gardens
Carly and Chris were married beachside on a beautiful fall Florida day. I adored these two and their peaceful love . You can tell that they are truly a blessing in each other’s lives. I feel so lucky to have been a little part in their big day surrounded by their amazing friends and family.
One year ago today Matt and I were blessed with another niece, Isla Rae. She is such a joy to be around and we have loved seeing her grow into a tiny little person this past year! We love watching the little lady she is turning into and are lucky to be a part of her life. Happy Birthday, Isla! We love you!
Living a purposeful life is something I try to do every day. Doing that means finding the joy in others and what they love, using my time wisely, letting go and living in the moment, and of course silver linings. I think this outlook on life really helps and comes through in my photography. I like to be in the moment and capture those sweet kisses, warm hugs, adoring gazes, and genuine giggles as they happen for you. It's those moments that happen naturally that you will remember the most.
