Hey there! I'm Angela.

When I asked Shelby to tell me how he proposed, this is what she said…”Well it’s kind of a long story LOL but we picked out the ring together a little while ago so I knew he had it and that it would be coming soon. We’ve been talking through details and I knew he was trying to plan something special. But he was putting a lot of pressure on himself LOL he called me that Tuesday night to tell me that he was going to do some big thing in my classroom with my kids, but that he kept getting the feeling I didn’t want it to be in front of people. Which I didn’t. (Good call!)
So he made reservations for Ipanema Brazilian Steakhouse that night and I just knew it was coming!! I got all dressed up and right before we were about to walk in he grabbed my arm and I immediately thought it was happening LOL and he hugs me and says please don’t be mad but I forgot the ring!! 🤣🤣🤣 so I was like 😳🤣🤣
So after we got back to the house, and had been about two hours, I thought for sure it wasn’t happening so I went and got in pajamas and took off my make up and then he asked me to go outside LOL and I said no 🤣🤣🤣
He is used to dealing with my moods and he is a saint 🤣🤣 we talked outside for a little while and I cried because I felt so silly LOL then he asked me please not to move and he literally sprinted to the truck LOL he opened the box and it has a light in it, so being outside in the dark and the light on it looked like a disco ball shining! We both busted out laughing and he got down on one knee and asked so sweetly. And that’s our story.”
And here we are, on a blustery, rainy summer day for their engagement session at Protea.

Welcome to the loveliest High Springs backyard wedding ever! Family and friends came from all over the country to be with them and celebrate. The bride did an amazing job of designing a classy and romantic ambiance. And everyone made me feel like I was a part of their bunch.

Josh and Jenna were all smiles on their wedding day. In fact, it was very difficult for either of them to give me a model face. They just kept laughing! At times, Josh had me laughing so much I couldn’t get my words out! You can just see that they love each other, and enjoy being around each other.

Their intimate ceremony took place in a moment of cooler Florida weather, and in true Florida fashion, quickly turned to a rainstorm. Meanwhile, this bride took it all in stride. She quickly moved her guests inside, and made the best of it. And you would never ever know by talking to her, that her beautiful reception decorations were getting drenched.

She was truly all smiles, and she was a joy to be around.

We were able to sneak here and there for portraits, and if you look closely, many were done in the rain. Again, she was up for anything and just wasn’t caught up in any unnecessary worry or disappointment. Against the odds, was truly enjoying her day.

What I loved most about this day, was the closeness of Josh and Jenna’s friends and family. Above all, to have a group of people love on them so much, was an inspiring thing to watch.

Josh and Jenna, I wish you all the best! And if you can survive rain on your wedding day with such a great spirit, I know you will weather all the storms that this life is going to throw at you. It was an honor to be there and I can’t thank you enough.

Ready for some serious family photography eye candy? These people are so good looking, and the location on their property is what photographers dreams are made of.

We had to reschedule their session due to bad weather, and boy am I glad we did. We had beautiful blue skies, with even more beautiful golden light.

Enjoy!

Kyle and Jessica’s love story began on January 15, 2015, and they were quickly engaged on March 6th 2015. Jessica said, “When you know, you know.”

They made it through a rocky first day (blown tire, she thought he stood her up), so that must have been a good sign! Since then they have had many good dates and genuinely just love to hang out with each other. He says she’s a great mom, and that she’s beautiful and sweet. She says she loves how hard he works for their family, and respects him for his honesty. They both share a beautiful passion for raising their son.

Their Wedding Day was more than perfect! I knew it would be when Jessica came to our wedding prep meeting with a binder, planner, and lists.  A woman after my own type-a heart.

Seriously though, she planned so many perfect details. I just love her simple yet country-elegant style. From the heirloom fur shawl to the chandeliers in the reception barn. She really brought elegance to a modest wedding.

January brought us so much gloomy weather this year, and while it was a bit overcast, it was beautiful weather. The perfect amount of cloud cover with brightness, and it made for a comfortable evening for all the guests.

Jessica and Kyle, I was honored to be a part of your day, and so glad to deliver you images you will cherish forever!

When a well respected family photographer asks you to do their family pictures (again), first you do a little dance, then you start worrying about doing a stellar job.

Well, these sweet people made my job very, very easy. Momma found the perfect location, and we rolled through the session with snuggles, laughs, and some hugs! These adorable kiddos are equal parts sugar & spice, and I just love being in their company!

Be sure to check out Megan at Halcyon Days Photography. She is a very talented, Gainesville based photographer.

I knew all along that Meagan was going to totally rock Dallas’ One Year / Gladwell Family portrait session, and yet she still amazed me! This super talented, hard working momma juggled all the balls that day to pull this one off. She’s spends all day, every day raising little people, both at work and home, and she’s loved by so many!

And just look at her results!

Sweet kiddos who I can’t get enough of and would love to put in my pocket and take home with me. Of course, let’s all give dad a big huge nod… all his girls adore him, and he obviously will do anything for them, including sitting in front of a flowered teepee in his front yard!

Speaking of their front yard! I could have stayed there forever. They have an absolutely gorgeous view.

So that’s enough of me gushing over this sweet, kind, funny, and stunningly beautiful family!

Now, enjoy some eye candy courtesy of a momma who knows how to celebrate!
