Brady + Emily – Talbot Island Sunrise Proposal

Let me tell you, engagements get me “right in the feels!” When Brady called me looking for someone to photograph his proposal to Emily I practically lept through the phone and high-fived him! He wanted to propose right after sunrise on the driftwood beach. Normally when I photograph there we work around the tide because at high tide there is not a lot of room to walk around the trees, but because we were going for a sunrise proposal we just waded through the water to make it around the trees! Emily probably thought I was a crazy person. Like ohhh, lets just walk in the water while your in a dress (because in my head I’m thinking oh man, I have to find a spot where Brady can get down on one knee to pop the question and there CANNOT BE WATER BECAUSE WHAT IF HE DROPS THE RING!!)

He lured her there under the pretense of a photo session so Brady and I had worked out that I would direct him into a “prom pose” so her back would be to him and that would give him time to get down on one knee. So I direct them into the prom pose and in my head I’m chanting “please say yes” (how awful would it be if you hired me to photograph your proposal and the girl said no!) Then I breathed a sigh of relief when she did say YES! It was so sweet and Brady and Emily had me take a photo with their iPhones so they could share with friends and family.

After finishing the photos we walked back to our cars and we were covered in salt and sand, but it was worth it. Emily eats breakfast with her dad at T-Rays on the weekends and they were headed there to share the news!

Brady, I am so glad you found me and that I got to be a part of this moment. I will be cheering for you guys from now until forever!

Abby + Joe – Nashville Wedding Photographer

As soon as Joe popped the question Abby and I stared planning her engagement session! Joe proposed in Radnor Lake State Park, so it was only fitting to photograph them there! Because I am a total Nashville lover I also asked them if we could stop by the “I believe in Nashville” sign and stop in my favorite neighborhoods: 12 South and the gulch. It was freezing outside, but we brought blankets and made the best of it! It was so cold I could not feel my hands by the end of the session. Fun Fact – You need a permit to photograph inside Radnor Park. The park ranger took pity on me when I told him I was not from TN and didn’t know the facts!! We ended this Nashville engagement session with dinner at Chuy’s and scouring downtown Nashville for souvenir t-shirts. Abby and Joe are getting married in May and I CANNOT WAIT to photograph their wedding day! I know it’s going to be beautiful and classy, just like Abby!

Margot + Eric, Lightner Museum St. Augustine Wedding

Some couples you just click with. Margot and Eric are one of those couples! Every time I am around Margot I feel like we are old friends. She is one of those people who is genuinely easy to be around and makes you feel welcomed into her circle. When we showed up on her wedding day to the quirky Air B&B where she and her bridesmaids were getting ready it was no different!

There ceremony took place on the bridge in the Courtyard of the Lightner Museum and the coordinator for the venue told me multiple times how gorgeous the bride and bridal party were and that I must get her the images from this wedding! We had so much fun following Eric and Margot through downtown St. Augustine for portraits. It rained for about 10 minutes (good luck for them!) The rest of the afternoon was gorgeous and sunny! Their reception took place at The Columbia Restaurant in downtown. The Sangria was flowing which made the speeches extra awesome!

Margot and Eric,

Thank you for bringing us in like part of your family. We wish you both many years of happiness together. Keith and I will be cheering on your marriage from the sidelines because we know how important it is to have people in your corner!

Florals: Southern Grace Florals

Hair and Make-up: NICstudios

Reception Venue: Columbia Restaurant St. Augustine

Samantha + Brett – Jewel toned Waterman’s Bluff Wedding

This was a wedding that we were SO looking forward to. Samantha and Brett were so cute at their engagement session and I got the vibe from them that while they wanted a beautiful wedding, they really just wanted to be married! When Whitney and I showed up at the house where where Samantha was getting ready the vibe was nothing but happiness and love. No stress. No one panicking over details. Just elation that the big day was finally here! We picked up all the bridal details to photograph them and my photog heart swooned with I saw the Kate Spade glitter flats. ( I want a pair for myself, but can’t think of an occasion to wear them!) Their ceremony took place at our church and the reception followed at Waterman’s Bluff. We LOVED the doughnut wall that was brought in for their reception (And the guests loved it too!)

Sam and Brett,

Our wish for you guys is a marriage more fun and more beautiful than your wedding day! Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your wedding and capture these memories for you!

House Dreams – The Brock’s Bungalow

About a year and a half ago Keith and I toured our friend’s tiny house and a small idea was sparked. Couldn’t we sell our home and build a small house with no mortgage? Could we REALLY? We started thinking of what we could eliminate by not living in the 32034 zip code as well. No city water bill? (Ours was $200-$300 a month!) Lower taxes? What could we do with no mortgage and less payments? Is 1000 sq feet too small? (Keith wants to go smaller!) Will we regret this? Can we just make the house tiny and have a great outdoor space for entertaining? We knew we had equity in our home and Amelia Island is growing so quickly. We knew homes were selling very quickly and wanted to put ours on the market before our neighborhood started its next expansion phase.

The “American Dream” isn’t our dream. We want to travel and didn’t like being tied to that mortgage. We felt like it was holding us back from so many things. Surrounded by all the stuff we thought we needed I just felt overwhelmed. I never wanted to go through or put that stuff away. I wasn’t any more content having things than I was without those things. That house became a pain when Keith started traveling for work and wanted to spend time with friends and family on the weekends instead of doing home maintenance. We made one of the best decisions ever when we hired Paige to come in and clean our house and with a smaller home there will be less to clean and less to maintain. If we weren’t sinking money into a mortgage we’d have extra to outsource all the other things we hated too! Mowing grass, washing windows… Living mortgage free would free up a large amount of money to outsource those things.

After talking about it for what seemed like forever we finally got serious and put our house on the market.

With the help of our amazing realtor, Jackie Darby, our home was under contract in less than a week. Thank you, JESUS! If it had taken any longer than a week I would have died because every morning I had to MAKE MY BED and have the house in tip-top shape and ready for showings. I’m not the kind of girl who makes her bed every day. Or even once a year! We walked away with enough money to build a small home which is exactly what we were hoping for.

Next came the process of moving out. It’s amazing the amount of stuff you can accumulate in one year. We took 30 + bags of clothing, toys and household items to goodwill. We only kept the stuff we really loved (mostly just my seashell collection) and packed it away in a storage unit. It took every bit of the 60 days we had until closing to dig ourselves out of all the stuff in our house.  One of our goals with the house we want to build is to keep the “stuff” to a minimum!

This week we took the step of calling the builder. He’s so busy that he cannot even meet with us until June, but he asked me to put together an inspiration board to send to him. Ideally I would like 1000 sq foot home with 2 small bedrooms and 2 baths. We want an open kitchen and living room with vaulted ceilings. Over the bedrooms we want an open loft. I realize I’m asking for a lot for such a small home, but we are flexible and our hearts won’t be broken if we can’t have it all.

I’m planning to blog throughout the building process because so many people ask us about what our plans are and this will be an easy way for everyone to follow along!

Here’s the inspo board for what I’m calling “The Brock’s Bungalow!” All images were taken from Pinterest.
