Shout out to Little Miss Intern, Madi!

Today on the blog, I bring you the many fun expressions of my dear friend + Little Miss Creative's new "Little Miss Intern", Madi! One of my favorite things about finding Madi has been the crazy amount of commonalities she and I share. We both love writing, learning, people, candid + fun photography, families, the Bible, graphic design, coffee, & laughing at ourselves! 

Madi has recently graduated college at Northwest Florida FSU campus studying photography and design and found LMC through Instagram! Just a few months ago, I posted a little note mentioning some of the exciting adventures up ahead for 2017 and shared a little about the desire for an intern to both learn from LMC & help us grow along the way. 

Madi was one of the first to respond to the post via email! After emailing back and forth with her and a few others, I knew there was something different about her excitement for photography + learning. On top of her initial excitement, I saw a wonderful talent embedded in her blossoming art that I could envision coming alongside with our brand! She recently graduated with her photography degree at Northwest Florida State University and loves working with weddings & families. Her creative angles, ability to bring out real emotions in people, and gorgeous lighting/backdrop choices gave me confidence in her ability to grow as an artist and continue in her photography journey! 

Our first coffee date to discuss each of our separate visions was love at first intern. As the summer heats up and photo sessions start kicking off in big ways, she's going to be a big blessing to the team! 

Now, what you've all been waiting for... So, Madi... Why don't you tell us some very important information about yourself? 

If you were an animal, what would you be? -- "A fox because they're so adventurous."

What is your favorite hobby outside of photography?  -- "Farmhouse sign making. Painting a wooden sign with a favorite quote, staining the frame and putting it all together. I just love projects."

What is something you would love to do in the future? -- "One thing I would love to do in the future is go hiking through the Appalachian trail or go backpacking somewhere epic."

What is your favorite thing about each photo session? -- "My favorite thing about a photo session is getting to capture an image almost as if freezing that moment in time.. maybe that image gets printed and treasured for a lifetime and then gets passed on and from that image your great great great grandchildren will know what you looked like. That's powerful to me!"

Cheers to new photography adventures for this little fox, Madi with Little Miss Creative! 


360 Blue Private Chef Experience

Here's a little "taste" of 360 Blue's private chef experience I had the opportunity of photographing recently! Gorgeous custom food displays , a unique menu , relaxing & fun atmosphere !

I LOVED working with the amazing team to create this beautiful display of one of 360's newest services here on the coast! Personal Chef Cali served up an incredible array of high-quality fresh foods and a dining experience designed to amaze!

Thanks to the 360 team for an incredible experience, stylist Rachael Klaeger for her creative assistance, as well as our newest member of Little Miss Creative, Madi!

Jeremy & Taylor | Triple Crown Wedding | 30A Wedding Photographer | 30A Wedding

I'm pretty sure at this point you guys all know well enough that EVERY wedding is my favorite... BUT I'll say it again anyways! Jeremy & Taylor's Triple Crown 30a Beach wedding truly is one of my all time favorites! Moreso than any other factor, it's because the bride & groom were so incredibly kind-hearted and fun... A perfect match for one another! Taylor & Jeremy have a way at making anyone feel welcome like family right from the start and I couldn't be more grateful to have had the opportunity to tell their special story! 

Being a part of their wedding just felt like the perfect fit in every way. Their planner, Amber, with Beachside Ceremonies and Events is always a joy to work with and really goes above and beyond to make sure the bride and groom are comfortable as well as each and every vendor in the process! Cali, of Silver Shades Studios rocked the video of the day, and Bonne Vie Specialty created the incredible dessert display which tasted even more amazing than it looked. That says a LOT considering it looked incredible!!!  Taylor's hair and makeup was done by the talented, Rachel, with Dear Bride! Florals were mastered by Stems Studio. The DJ who rocked the house was Emerald Coast Entertainment Services. The fun photobooth was created by Dazzle Me Photobooth

To top their awesomeness & beauty off, T+J truly had the most dreamy, magazine-worthy, beach wedding you could imagine. Enjoy! 

Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. Wisdom!
