Alli & Damon were every photographer’s dream client. Laid back, relaxed, happy, and all around beautiful people! We met about a year ago through a mutual friend and ever since they decided to hire me on as their wedding photog, we have grown even closer as friends. Every occasion we have had together, I think it would be safe to say we have had ourselves a little too much fun. Their engagement session was followed by a very late night out in Jax Beach, followed by an extremely long drive back to the Emerald Coast. Our pre-wedding timeline planning took place at non other than a tequila bar andddd they were kind enough to ask me to relax at the reception and join in the fun with them, and yes.I.did.
They lucked out with the most beautiful day, a day that was drenched in sunshine and the bluest of skies. A day that is meant for a wedding and to be filled with love. Alli and Damon were so calm during their prep time, everything seemed to be just as it should; plus can we talk about their DOGter Zoe – I mean really? She is just too much.
The wedding was held in Atlantic Beach, one of my personal favorite spots in the area. With a few seashells and lots of friends and family surrounding, Alli and Damon said their “I Do’s” and the rest is history. We had a blast with their formals and continued the party at the Garden Club after.
Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Mitrakos for trusting me to capture your day full of love and your new life together. Cheers to you and our new friendship! XOXO

Baby Jhett gave me a run for my money. Being almost 16 weeks old, and 15+ pounds, this not so new “newborn” put up a fight! Mommy and daddy had requested newborn type photos, so we took our time and had lots of feeding. With the help of a heater, noise machine, pacifier, and a strong daddy who walked him around the house with him in his prop basket, we finally got him to sleep….for about 15 minutesNeedless to say it was nothing short of a miracle and we managed to capture some sweet sleepy moments, in the only basket big enough to hold this nugget!
After he awoke, we decided to be thankful we got the few we did and head to the park for a few family photos. I had a wonderful time with the Russell family and their sweet boys – I hope to be able to capture them growing up together, siblings are the best!
Those cheeks – OH so squishy!Sleepy little owl
Love this interaction!

Sweet baby Grant was an absolute dream to work with. He is the definition of a “ham” and has blue eyes that captivate the camera. We had such a fun afternoon at Cerulean Park in Watercolor, Fl and then ended our session in Seaside. I was lucky enough to witness Grant’s first experience with sand – he seemed to have lost interest in the camera and our silly noises when he discovered that it was quite a tasty afternoon snack I hope these images brighten your day as they did mine – I am so blessed to call this my job
