It’s taken me awhile to write this blog post. From someone who likes to write but never has time to, it feels like it takes ages to formulate my thoughts. This stylized adventure elopement session had a lot of heart put into it and not just my own but all the brilliant vendors that hustled to make it happen. I love what I do but sometimes, as a creative, you find yourself in a rut and not sure what road to take when it comes to change. I’m always changing and growing and find myself often saying, “I don’t think I’ll ever arrive.” The process is what I crave and over the last year, I’ve found myself coming into my own. Some people say not to attach emotion to your work but I disagree. For so long, I’ve been trying to find ‘my style’; my niche, my vibe and for about 8 years I lived in the ‘bright and airy’ world of post-processing. It didn’t fit ME though; it didn’t fit the way I want to express myself to the world and when I did FIND IT. Wow! I love the mood, grit, and all the warmer tones. So, having said all that, I noticed a trend out west. Adventure elopements! Why don’t we see more of these on the east coast? If there are 2 things that I love most(other than Jesus and my family), it’s traveling and photography. So, here I am putting it out there:) This styled session was a collaborative effort on all accounts and when I saw all things velvet, pampas, peacock chairs, leather jackets and hats, I knew it was exactly what I wanted to show to all of you:)
I’m offering a package to you all that is exactly what I’d want if I was looking for an elopement photographer; something unique and customized to my taste.
An adventure elopement session includes 2 hours of photography, all high-res edited images, a night sky star map, and a small eco-friendly album. If traveling outside of St. Augustine, FL, a travel fee would be applied.
I hope you all enjoy and thank you for following, encouraging and inspiring.
