Lifestyle yoga photosession with Theresia Portoghese, at Rollins College campus and Dinky Dock. Theresia has helped many students seek a healthier and happier lifestyle through yoga, and has recently used yoga to heal herself during her own health journey.
Jaime + Alex explored Sebastian Inlet State Park for their romantic beachside engagement session. They danced in the romantic misty seashore, and embraced in the crashing waves on this magical summer evening. For their engagement outfits, this engaged lady wore a beautiful indigo and white skirt with a white top, while her man looked dashing in a blue oxford shirt and white jeans. Alex proposed with a stunning cushion pave diamond ring, and she said yes!
Kayla + Kelly’s engagement photo session was an adventure through the wild rainforest gardens, live oak trees and enchanting sunset over the Matanzas River at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Palm Coast, Florida. This adorable LGBT couple embraced the rain with a clear umbrella, as they strolled, danced and laughed their way through the trails of the garden.
I was over the moon to hear Meghan & Michael are expecting a baby boy! Two years ago these two tied the knot in a day full of laughter, wildflowers and delicious food at their Winter Park Farmer's Market wedding. Their life has taken them on a honeymoon through Europe, and a move to North Carolina. But I love that they came back to one of Michael's fondest childhood spots in the springs of Apopka to welcome this new chapter of their lives into the world. Meghan was one gorgeous mama to be in her floral dress, and by the way Michael looks at her he couldn't be more proud to become a dad. I loved that they embraced the chance to cool off in the beautiful spring water, and soak in the clear blue waters fresh from the Florida aquifer. This is truly a resource we need to save for the next generation, and I hope their son can grow up to share their love of Florida's nature.
I need a Delorean to take me back to Gabe & Chad's amazing wedding day at Casa Feliz Wedding and Event Venue Winter Park, FL! Gabe & Chad are two of the most beautiful spirits I have ever met, and they put on one incredible wedding day for their family and friends! This day was filled with everything they love best- and is an amazing tribute to their love of travel (through time and the world!), Orlando City, dancing, amazing food and the beautiful community that supports them 100%. Gabe's talented sister Jessi of Letra Bohemia created incredible calligraphy suite for them also.

We traveled to Jupiter, Florida for their adventure maternity photo session together on the rocky beaches, and sea grape tunnels of a gorgeous local state park. The expecting mom-to-be wore a white boho maternity gown with a eucalyptus and greenery floral crown, with photography by Shaina DeCiryan Lifestyle + Wedding Photography.

Jay & Stephanie have been building an incredible home together, so it was only natural that they tie the knot on their front porch surrounded by all their loved ones! Stephanie has an incredible eye for vintage finds and wore a three generation bridal gown and a 1920s inspired beaded reception gown. To create their amazing flower filled garden party reception the couple collaborated with Julie Miner Events, Absolutely Fabulous and Rent Your Events, and served their Southern favorites catered by from Two Chicks and a Pot.
