Ever the coastal girl, I have always wanted to photograph a portrait session on a boat. I dreamed of wind and waves, a sunset, and a couple lovingly cuddled beneath the sails. Imagine my excitement when I was invited to be a part of a styled bridal photoshoot on a yacht called Playin’ Hooky!

Did you know that I collect crystals and gemstones? I have a special shelf dedicated to showcasing them, from the familiar garnet and peridot, to the beloved smoky quartz and celestite. Even the unusual desert rose and cerussite (what the heck is that?) line my shelves. So, Brittany and her shop The Shinn Life and I were a match made in heaven!

Bonnie and Carson were married on a beautiful New Years Eve day in an intimate courthouse elopement. After grabbing some celebratory drinks, we met up in Palm Beach at a small park located between the busy streets surrounding Worth Avenue. The sun beamed through the canopy of trees in this little oasis, shining over us as Bonnie and Carson symbolically “tied the knot” in a handfasting ceremony before the final sunset of the year.

I love photographing jewelry and details, especially during weddings. This Flagler Park photoshoot features Mallet & Mandrel’s unique flower jewelry and a wood and resin necklace. Mallet & Mandrel is a husband and wife team that creates beautiful jewelry pieces out of recycled materials, such as flowers, wood, coins, and silver. In addition to incorporating natural and recycled elements in their work, Mallet & Mandrel’s love for nature extends to planting a tree for every purchase.
