We met up with Tara + Kevin at the Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale for their engagement session, and wow– that place is worth checking out! We were restricted to shooting in the gardens only, but that was no problem; we easily could have shot there for days on end. It’s amazing how this oasis of trees and quiet is tucked right between bustling city streets! This was our first time meeting Kevin and we immediately…

    We’re so excited for Angela + John’s wedding next year! We met them for their engagement session in downtown West Palm Beach for a fun afternoon of wandering the waterfront and up Clematis Street, ending at their nearby home for a few shots with their fur-babies (we love sessions with cats!). Click below for some of our favorites from this session. Xoxo-Em + Steve

We first met local Florida girl Kaitlyn and her mother Karla, as we were pulling camera bags from our car before heading into a wedding reception last year. One of those moments of happy coincidence, Kaitlyn was recently engaged and they had just been talking about wedding photographers when they nearly tripped over us. We said a quick hello before going back to work and remember remarking how sweet they seemed, and how nice it…

We’ve been waiting for this shoot for a long time! We met Francisco over five years ago, and recently met his long time boyfriend, Antonio (and loved him just as much as we thought we would… maybe more). Their love and dedication for each other over the last nine years is evident in every touch, every laugh, and every we’ve-been-together-forever-and-that-exasperates-me-but-I-love-you-anyway moment. Nothing inspires us more than love that has lasted the test of time; except…

Jessica + David are one of those couples who have infectious laughs. One of them smirks, the other giggles; the next thing you know, we’re all laughing. They also have the unusual ability to relax and interact with each other naturally with cameras aimed at them, something we usually have to coach… and this they’ll probably deny. We loved their story: the quintessential families meeting at the club, “Your nephew would LOVE my granddaughter!”, which…

We met Julissa + Rod on the golf courses of PGA National earlier this week. We shoot near golf courses often for weddings, but this was the first time in a while we’d had the pleasure of a couple of hours driving around in carts, looking for pretty spots… what a great afternoon! The weather was perfect; warm, but not too hot, and a refreshing breeze blowing across the links. We were thrilled with how…

Once upon a time there was a good girl who liked to ride her scooter to the club by the ocean. One day she arrived to find a bad boy on his classic motorcycle. One thing led to another… and bam! They’re getting married. (Or at least that’s the story we’re telling today…)  Lisa + David blew us away with their elaborate, well planned engagement session ideas. We love how they incorporated things they love…

There’s something to be said for waiting a long time before you get married. Teresa and Brent have been together longer than the Pogos have known each other, have a settled routine in their lives with their daughter, and go about their daily lives just… living. Maybe you’ve heard that after a few years romance and love can get put on the back burner, and maybe that’s true for some people. Teresa and Brent blew…

Melanie + Alex joined us for their engagement session at Dubois Park last week and absolutely rocked their session. We’re super excited to be there for their wedding this fall!

We had a great afternoon with Christina + Ryan, starting at the Jupiter Lighthouse and finishing at Coral Cove Park for some beachy shots. The weather was threatening, but held off the entire time we were outside! How cooperative. :-) Despite living in Jupiter for the past 6 years, Em had somehow never been to the Lighthouse before (and Steve hadn’t been since elementary school), so it was a really fun experience… add in a…

We joined Stephanie and Jim in Naples for their engagement session before the holidays and had so much fun! We wandered through Tin City, 5th Avenue South, and wound up at the local beach for a spectacular Gulf Coast sunset over the water. Thanks to this happy couple for inviting us to your part of the state– we can’t wait to see you for your wedding in February! Click below to see more of our…

Last Thursday Emily met Julia & Carlos at Coral Cove Park to take their engagement photos.  The weather was a little stormy, but the clouds managed to part just in time for the sunrise– and it was gorgeous!  Below are a few of our favorites..
