Friends, meet two of my long time favorites, Brent and Andrea Daugherty! I’ve known Andrea for more years than I can count on one hand, and I had the absolute joy of being their wedding photographer on December 9th, 2012 in The Duck Keys, Florida. It was my first real wedding season, and my first destination wedding! I made the trip with my first ever intern, Kristen. Andrea and I have been friends ever since and she has witnessed so many “first’s” with me. It’s crazy to think that she’s been along on my journey from the very beginning, and I on hers!
Andrea started out second shooting in late 2013 with me and I’ve been egging her on to pursue her passion and calling in photography ever since because it’s so clearly a calling over her life! I’ve been so, so excited to see her start her own business “One Thirty Nine Photography” this past year, and now officially take it full time! I’ve photographed Brent and Andrea a few times since their wedding, sometimes just for fun and sometimes for anniversary sessions! It’s so fun getting to swap sessions with one another, and have that go to friend who just gets you and the way you want to be photographed.
We just knew we had to plan a fun styled shoot in honor of Brent and Andrea’s 4 year wedding anniversary! We envisioned something “bad ass”, in bare woods, dead of winter and glamorous. We had so much fun collaborating with some seriously talented vendors. Demi Green was the magic behind the makeup + Rent The Runway gets all the credit for the amazing gold sequenced dress + Tara of Splints and Daisies created the most perfect floral arrangement that tied everything together with a cherry on top! We photographed along 322 in Brickerville, at “Thousand Steps” which is a great hiking/adventuring spot. We probably ended up with the coldest day of the year yet, but these two totally rocked it. I am so obsessed with these images!
Happy Anniversary Brent + Andrea! Thank you for your many years of friendship, business, support and memories. Cheer’s to a new season and adding our soon to be new little member to our clan. 🙂

Hey guys! Man, it’s been aaaawhile. I hope you’ll forgive me, it’s been quite a full year planning a wedding, buying a house, getting married, moving in, becoming an owner of my first ever PUPPY! All while still shooting tons of kick butt sessions and weddings! I will be catching up and blogging all of that over this Winter so stay tuned!!!
I’m sure you’ve seen some stuff about my two amazing 2014 interns Julia + Katherine! They’ve been doing everything from assisting at photo shoots, second shooting at weddings, helping to edit all of the lovely photos we’ve taken so far this year as well as attending some “intern classes” where we went over flash techniques, composition, strengths/weaknesses, editing/photoshop.. you name it, we covered it. I have seen these girls grow in their knowledge, experience and talents so much over this year. It’s always such a good feeling to be a part of someones growth and love for photography! Makes my heart feel so full. 🙂
Last night we had a little party to celebrate the (sad) ending to their internship! Food, hot chocolate, laughs, balloons, and of course some photos! Plus, anything styled in white + gold is just dandy in my book.
I am so thankful for all of the time and hard work these girls put into their internship and time with me and am SO excited to see where they go in life and their photography journeys! We have some exciting news in store for 2015 some of which include potential workshops, styled shoots, advertisements, updated materials and.. team growth!? We will be announcing all of this exciting stuff over the course of the next few months so keep your eyes peeled. 🙂
Hope everyone has an AWESOME Thanksgiving holiday!
And of course, my puppy Kemma had to make a debut.. 😉
