documentary portrait photography

We often photograph weddings at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach (as we will soon with Sarah + Todd’s upcoming day), but this was the first chance we’ve had to shoot an engagement session in this lush location. The day ended up being perfect for it; overcast skies with deep tree cover from the rare palms and jungle trees makes for a quiet beauty that isn’t always seen in our sunny state.…

And now for something completely different. As you may or may not have figured out already, we traveled for no reason other than fun and a love of adventure to Iceland last November. Why? Why not? It’s been on our bucket lists for years, and an insanely good deal on airfare and a hotel sealed the deal for us. While we eagerly awaited our departure date, Iceland seemed to pop up everywhere. Photographers we know…

A stormy day couldn’t keep Kaitlyn + Matt from beaming at each other last weekend! We joined these recent West Point grads for their wedding celebration along with friends and family from near and far. We met Kaitlyn and her mom in a Juno Beach parking lot while headed into another wedding last December, and have been so touched by the obvious care and emotion that they have put into this happy day (and getting to…

Every time we photograph Miss Kylar Rose we are reminded of how time must be speeding up; she’s turning into a young lady so quickly. (See her 3 Year Session and 2 Year Session) We love the many faces of Kylar Rose, but especially the way she can stare straight through you. Not only will she be a beautiful woman when she grows up, but she’s already showing signs of strength and independence, just like…

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…

We met up with Kameron + Brandon (and their mom Karen, and her mom Sandy) at the park the other day for some family portraits. Karen knows her twins are a bit rambunctious and wanted us to document them the way they are… always running, jumping, yelling, and generally being “boys”. We managed to get some group shots and a few calm portraits too, but it’s the wild shots that really show their personalities! Lots…

This session means a lot to us… Jeremiah and Steve have known each other since high school, a friendship that has stayed steady despite crazy work schedules and growing families (need an AC guy? Jeremiah is the best. Leave a comment for contact info!). Jeremiah + Ashley’s wedding was one of the only ones we’ve attended (since we usually shoot them!), and we’ve been trying to get them in front of our lenses since we found…

Jessica and David were among my first clients, way back before Pogo Photo, before Steve, before Florida, in the early years of my college studies at SCAD. I met Jessica years before that, when she was directing local plays in Vermont and cast me as Celia in As You Like It (and we both discovered that acting—and memorizing lines—were not my strong points, though it was a fun experience). Far, far away, Jessica met David…
