Kin - Dee - Garden : (pronunciation courtesy of Mike) : Kindergarten, it's hard to believe that's when I first met Julie. I've had the honor of being her friend despite the great amount of miles we've put between us over and over again.
During one year of our friendship we attended the same college, which is also when we both met our husbands! You could have found us giggling in the school's darkroom together ruining many rolls of film! So, I was absolutely thrilled when she asked me to put those skills I learned so many years ago to use by documenting the most special day of her life on the beach in Florida!

My favorite shots of the day!
What a perfect first kiss as husband and wife!
After spending a whole week on the beach with this family we've come to adore them just as much as we do Julie & Andrew!
There will be more on that later!
My favorite shots of the night!
Julie & Andrew
Most Memorable Moment of the Day
Julie: The moment that I saw Andrew waiting at the bottom of the stairs for our first look pictures & the sweet words he said to me
Andrew: Julie saying “Heck Yes I Do”! & Waiting at the bottom of the stairs to see he for the first time!
Advice for Future Brides from Julie
Have fun! Soak in every moment. Even if little things go wrong…don’t stress over them.
The little, quirky things are what make those fun, lasting memories that make you look back and smile
Advice for Future Grooms from Andrew
If your having a sunset wedding, be prepared to wait around ALL DAY. I was never nervous but I got antsy waiting for the time to come.
