House Of Refuge Museum Beach: Stuart, Florida - Ocean Side Styled Shoot
I had a the absolute privilege of working with some of South Florida's finest vendors on this styled elopement at the House of Refuge. It has taken me longer than usual to put it out there thanks to Irma. But, I'm getting back into the routine of things and so happy to be working on more awesome art! I've loved diving in to the Miami wedding industry and meeting some incredible women in the Rising Tide's Tuesday's Together group. It has made this transition a million times easier and I'm so thankful for these new friendships.
If you missed the original blog post you can check it out HERE. I was able to shoot both photos and video on the beach. I mean, this was day 3 of us being in Miami and I was running around barefoot in the sand, getting in the ocean, I was totally in my element. Thankful to the amazing couple who put up with me asking them to do the same things twice so I could capture it on both mediums haha!

Miami Ocean Front Head Shots & Portraits
I'm bitter sweetly writing this post from Cary, North Carolina. Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill is our home. We were born and raised here. A month ago we took a leap of faith and moved 12 hours south to Miami Beach, Florida for Drew's clinical psychology residency. Over that month we met incredible friends in Brickell, visited food trucks at The Wynwood Yard, checked out Granada Presbyterian Church in Coral Gables, listened to awesome music by Macy Todd in Little Haiti at Ace Props House, and fell in love with the city. Then we starting to hear rumblings of Irma. Miami is such a relaxed and chill city that no one was too worried, yet.
But, then we got a phone call from our dear friend who works at the National Weather Center who said we should start thinking about evacuating before the official orders come down and the two highways out of the state gridlock. So on Tuesday night we packed what we could in our tiny Honda and said a prayer and good bye to the rest. It was surreal packing and prepping the house thinking we might not see everything again. It was tough to leave a place we had fallen in love with so soon after arriving and right as we were getting in routine and finding our tribe. As we arrived in the Triangle though, we realized how much we had truly started to plant roots in Miami. It's been an incredible week here in North Carolina getting to spend quality time with friends and family, but it's also been a wonderful reiazliation that we love our new city! While we don't know quite yet the fate of our casita, we know that we can get through anything with our solid support network in NC and new community in Miami. I can't wait to get back into wedding photography and wedding videography in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale/Coral Gables area!
Right before we left I had the privilege of getting in touch with a friend over Instagram. Elizabeth is a an amazing, brave, and beautiful model in North Miami and wanted to connect for a photoshoot. Of course I want to photograph a fierce lady on the beach! So we met half way at the dynamic Haulover Park full of rocks, palm trees, and bay and ocean side spots! We talked about life, modeling, her home country, birthdays, being new to Miami, and hustling all the time. We shot till the sun set over the yachts bobbing in the bay. You can check out her Instagram and keep scrolling down because there are tons of beautiful pic below! Such a treat to meet, and very excited for more collaborations in the future!
