The Castellano Family

I met the Castellano family on Melbourne Beach last week for some portraits of their extended family. You can tell by the smiles above that this is the grandparents and the grandchildren. The kids had fun, some left wet and I’m sure everyone left sandy but it was all for a good cause!

Brent and Christina

I photographed Brent and Christina’s destination wedding on Sanibel Island, Florida last weekend and it was the first wedding I’ve ever photographed that my husband also officiated. It was fun! I made sure to include a photo below so everyone can see how nice he looked in his suit (which I had to purchase for him since the last suit …

The Ryals Family

I love the Ryals Family! I have photographed them bunches of times and they are close friends as well as awesome Young Life volunteers in Melbourne. It’s fun to watch their girls grow up in photographs. They make me laugh more in a photography session than anyone ever has. These girls are just hilarious and I have to try hard …

Francisco and Leah

Francisco and Leah are engaged and getting married this weekend! They will be engaged 4 months when they get married, just like my husband and I were and we are celebrating our 9th anniversary this week! They are such a sweet couple. I think it is definitely the closest engagement and wedding shoot I have ever done. We met in …

Kuntz Family

The Kuntz family came all the way from Tallahassee last week and we got together for their annual photography session. They happen to be great friends of mine so it’s fun to see each year how their children grow and change. Its a good thing we’re friends because this was a crazy evening! We got started, then the rain came, …

Robin and Jessica

Robin’s husband gave her a gift certificate to Angel Gray Photography for Mother’s Day so she could get some sweet photos of her and her daughter Jessica. We got together at their home on the canal in Satellite Beach, FL last week and then went over to the beach for a little photo shoot as well. Jessica is just about …

Beachside Boot Camp

I did some fitness photography for Beachside Bootcamp in Satellite Beach (Melboure Fl Area) last week. Commercial photography is always a fun break from portraits, events, weddings, etc. It’s different for me because I have more control, freedom and time to create a vision for the work. Sometimes its hard because I have an idea in my head and I’ve …

Sean and Nataleigh

Sean and Nataleigh were in Florida last week from Lakewood, Washington. They have been married a year and wanted a fun, romantic photography shoot to document their new marriage. We met near Patrick Air Force Base and had some fun. I love this first sequence (starting above) -how things can go from super sweet, to big disaster, to laugh it …

The Chupka Family

My friend Gina gave her mom a gift certificate for photography on her birthday last year and finally the whole family was together (some all the way from Texas) to use it last week! We met in Cocoa Beach and narrowly escaped the rain as so many of my evening sessions do lately! We had a good time, and mostly …

The Jones Family

The Jones extended family were all together here in Melbourne for their parent’s (and grandparents) anniversary and wanted to get a family photo. I know one family was all the way from Kentucky and another I think was here from Texas. We met at Ryckman park and took a few family photos then let kids play a little while I …

Joel and Jennifer

Joel and Jennifer currently live in Georgia but they are getting married here in August at Central Baptist Church of Melbourne and having their reception at the Indian River Colony Club in Viera. They were in town last weekend for the final time before the wedding and we had their engagement shoot scheduled for Sunday evening. Just about an hour …

Michael and Elizabeth

I met Michael and Liz last weekend for their engagement session. Their wedding is coming up in the fall here in Melbourne at Ascension Catholic Church and the Suntree Country Club. They came over from the Orlando area to spend the weekend finalizing wedding planning. We had some windy conditions but it just contributed to the fun Michael and Liz …

Katie

I met Katie in Cocoa Beach last Friday for her senior portraits. She will graduate from high school this year in Cincinnati, Ohio and wanted some unique senior pictures. Katie seems to be a sweet young lady who has big plans for her future. Hope you enjoyed your vacation in Florida Katie – best wishes as you graduate!

Tyler and Casey

I first met Tyler at a birthday party for his grandfather I photographed, I think two years ago. What a cutie, and now there’s Casey, his younger brother – quite the ham. We met in Melbourne Beach and had a great time. Children this age might not be excited about everything you ask them to do, but they are easy …

Eau Gallie Yacht Club Wedding – Drew and Lindsay

Drew and Lindsay were married last weekend on the deck at the Hilton Melbourne Beach Oceanfront. They are a sweet couple I got to know through their engagement shoot and of course wedding planning. Lindsay has a way of making you feel like good friends which makes me look forward to being their photographer in the future, hopefully for some …

Just the Boys (almost)

Well I’ve been feeling a tad guilty about posting all those dance recital pics and then leaving my boys out completely! So, here I am staying at my parents for the night with just my family photos with me on the lap top so I’m going to make up for my omission! My two boys are 5 years apart and …

Captiva Island Wedding – Tony and Carlye

I shot Tony and Carlye’s destination wedding on Captiva Island, FL just over a week ago. They were married on the lawn at South Seas Island Resort. Despite the gloomy forecast, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky! The bride looked beautiful of course. Tony and Carlye are a great couple – I’ve gotten to know them a little through …

Derek and Holly

I met Derek and Holly last week at a park in Cocoa, FL for their engagement shoot. You’ll see the Porcher House (Cocoa Village) in the background of the picture below. They will be having their wedding ceremony there in September. What a cool house – I am a huge fan of old houses so I look forward to photographing …

The Miksis Family

I met the Miksis family (really three families in addition) on Melbourne Beach last week. They were all together from various places around the country. We had to cancel our original session due to rain and actually met the next evening just after another storm. The beach is extra beautiful after rain. We wanted to get some group photos and …

Matthew and Noel – Part 2

Yay part 2 is here and this should complete the most images in any blog post, ever! Noel is “totally gorge” as my daughter would say… The WHOLE wedding party! First NON-wedding guest to email me the correct number of people in this pic wins a FREE 8×10! serious comedy here folks the ladies… couldn’t decide which way I liked …
