January in North Florida has been unusually warm this year. Very little rain, and lots of sunshine! So, “engagement pictures on Friday,” I said. “Good idea,” he said. Yesterday was gray and gloomy, overcast and only 50°. We froze our tails off doing the shoot, but the pics turned out phenomenal! Jon’s brother in law,… Continue reading Engagement Photos
Several months ago (maybe even a year ago), Jon sent me a text about a song by a band from here in Jacksonville. He said I needed to watch the video. The song brought tears to his eyes the first time he heard it, and he wanted to share it with me. I was at… Continue reading Our Song
