Beauty + Michael // St. Augustine, FL

When I originally met with Beauty at our initial consult I LOVED her. We clicked right away and we were on the same page about everything. I loved her ideas and I loved that she trusted me too. Trusting creativity and professionalism is huge to a photographer and it means the world. She was organized and knew exactly what she wanted for the big day but had realistic expectations and smart ideas for her timeline. She made things easy for me. Their day was beautiful in every way and we were so lucky that the tropical storm looming stayed away. We ended up not having one drop of rain when it was supposed to pour. I didn't get to meet Michael until the day of their wedding and when I finally got to see this couple together...with their kids and family, it was pure love and joy. Michael's reaction to seeing Beauty for the first time at their first look is why I do what I do.

It melted my heart.

These two and their love that they found for one another in this big world is something to not take for granted. I feel very grateful to have been a part of their story and big day.

So much thanks to all of their amazing vendors who helped make their day as incredible as it was. Love these guys!
