The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


In January, I had the privilege to photograph Justin & Juliana’s beautiful wedding in my hometown, Dunedin FL! It was such a wonderful day filled with love, joy, & happiness.

Juliana, Justin and I went to high school together! They had been best friends through out high school and then they started dating. A few years down the road, Justin proposed to Juliana and now they are living happily ever after.

Juliana comes from a big family so the getting ready time was full of community, family and compassion. They had a bridal party of ten bridesmaids and ten groomsmen, can you say a fun crowd! Certainly had an exciting time! I even got to ride in the party bus with the ladies to the ceremony!

Talk about a STUNNING wedding ceremony! There wasn’t a dry eye in the pews and the presence of the Lord was so evident! I grew up living right around the corner from this church and will never look at it the same way! There was a sunlight right down the middle of the sanctuary and that allowed gorgeous lighting for the time!

Happiness is being married to your best friend. 

“The goal is to laugh forever with someone you take serious. ”

I am so excited to see what adventures God blesses

Justin & Juliana with!
