Heather’s Unwedding Photoshoot

Heather is an amazing, beautiful woman who was supposed to be getting married in April of this year. Unfortunately, that wasn’t going to be the case as her and her fiance found themselves unable to reconcile a misstep.  I was so sorry to hear about this when she contacted me to cancel our wedding contract. I too was going through a similar situation with my ex-fiance and we connected over our grief.

A big difference between me and Heather was how we were handling our situation and grief. I felt shut down, unmotivated, and unable to be excited about even what I loved to do. Heather took her situation and decided it was going to make her stronger. She bought new clothes, changed her beauty regiment, and dove in. She decided she wanted to still meet me the week of her now-canceled wedding for an un-wedding photoshoot to celebrate her independence.

Heather chose to meet my assistant Mary and I at Rollins College in Winter Park. Rollins was a great location for this shoot. It has great buildings with a lot of personality, gardens that are always blooming, and wonderful waterfront areas.

Heather is a strong and independent woman. She is fashionable, brilliant, and a businesswoman. While we were having fun letting her dance to her own tune she wanted to also get a few updated headshots and professional photos for her business.

“I do” in downtown Winter Park

I met Adrienne and Scott along with their kids several months before their big day for their family engagement session at Mead Botanical Garden. We had so much fun wandering the garden that we ended up staying much longer than we expected.

They chose to get married at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market located downtown right across from a beautiful rose garden. Scott and the boys got ready at a fellow groomsman’s home and Adrienne and the girls at their home. The ceremony took place outside under the covered porch and then the celebration began inside the market’s main building which used to be a train station.




Mission Inn Sunset Ceremony

Angelene and Raymond chose the beautiful Mission Inn to share their long-awaited vows. Getting ready was a time full of happy emotions, Angelene and Raymon have been together for nearly a decade and it was finally time to put it in writing.


Mission Inn is such a beautiful venue with vast scenery that allows for a wide range of differently styled weddings. Angelene and Raymond had a very romantic courtyard ceremony as the sun was beginning to set.


Their reception was full of loved ones with happy memories. Most of their guests came from out of state to join them on this big day. They had a live band sing and play at the reception which is always a blast. DSC_7344DSC_7483
