photo diary | Osceola National Forest

Made a spur of the moment road trip with Alexa and Lia with one intention in mind: stargazing. We brought along some pumpkins from Halloween and decided to smash them with a baseball bat until the sun set- it was extremely therapeutic. Upon night fall, we were blessed with skies of black velvet and diamonds. I was lucky enough to even capture the Milky Way Galaxy with a long exposure.

photo diary | San Francisco (& a video)

My mother and I were very blessed to get out of the house for the weekend and experience the wonders of San Francisco. With the keys to a rental car and a list of must-see places, we were on a mission.

We started our journey with the very famous Golden Gate Bridge. We drove over it and ended up hiking up some mountains to obtain views that took our breath away. Literally.

Amid our adventures, we stumbled upon several tiny gardens. The flowers were so vibrant it made our hearts dance with joy. My mom is featured in the photograph above feelings the grass between her toes. We were simply living.

This is the famous Lombard Street: a one-way street in the heart of San Francisco that literally resembles the curves of a snake. Did I force my mom to drive us down it? Yes. Yes I did. She may or may not have screamed the whole time.

Day two: We headed to the Piers/Fisherman’s Wharf by the Bay. The sunshine was in full force and the sunflowers danced in the wind. The energy alone gave me life.

We decided to take a spur of the moment boat ride under the Golden Gate Bridge. IT WAS GRAND. We saw dolphins, a humpback whale, cruised next to pelicans and took a ride around Alcatraz island.

A wonderful addition to the Piers is the happy guests who have made themselves at home. Most of them were either sleeping and sunbathing, or competing to see who was the better Alpha-male. These guys were hilarious. My mom and I took a solid 15-20 minutes to just observe them.

Ghirardelli Square; home of the original Ghirardelli Chocolate factory. It also had cute shops and nice views- you can’t beat that.

Baker Beach around golden hour. Charming, but absolutely freezing.

Twin Peaks; daytime and at night. Appreciating San Fran from that high up was the best way we could’ve possibly ended our trip. We made beautiful memories together and I’m more than blessed that I was able to do so with my best friend.

photo diary | photographing a wedding in Key West

On May 4th, 2017, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Key West for the weekend to photograph a wedding! My best friend Jessie, her mom and soon to be husband came to me in hopes that I do my part in capturing their special moment. Humbled and absolutely floored, I accepted the offer and headed south towards the Keys. Not only was the destination gorgeous, but I got to spend time exploring this gorgeous place with one of my best friends!

The wedding ceremony took place on a sail boat, which was a first for me! I’ve been on many boats in my life, but never a sail boat. I was in awe from our gorgeous views and just being able to feel the wind in my hair.
