Ocala Florida | Welcome Gloriana Adele Gilman!
In 2016, I had the privilege of photography Evan and Tiffany's wedding. Like most of my couples, they became family! So when they came by the studio to pick up products, and announced they were expecting, I was over joyed! When I get to see my coupes become a little family, it makes my heart smile!
Tiffany wanted to incorporate her wedding veil in Gloriana's session. Below, Gloriana is wearing her gorgeous wedding headband and laying in a wooden heart lined with her veil! So sweet!
We love you so much already Gloriana! So thrilled to get to watch you grow and begin your story!
Tiffany | Maternity Photography
A mother's joy begins when new life is stirring inside...
when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time,
and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone...
Photographing Tiffany is always such a joy! Such a natural beauty in front of the lens!
Now with her sweet belly, alongside Evan, we headed out to create some great memories!
Tiffany chose several different styled dresses and went with reds and blush pinks to celebrate little Gloriana's soon arrival! I love her little pink shoes and adorable dresses on the line!
This last two photos with the sun soon to meet the horizon was my favorite of the day!
Such perfect lighting!
I can't wait to greet Gloriana in the studio in a few more weeks! I
have no doubt she's going to be as beautiful as her Mama!
Mike | Senior Experience
Mike melts you with his sweet smile! I love how comfortable he was in front of the lens. It was a joy to hear his story, coming here from Haiti and all he's been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time! Such a bright, grounded young man who is willing to work hard to reach his goals! With his amazing family supporting him, he will definitely succeed!!
You're an amazing young man with a big heart! So glad your path led you to the States where you will have the opportunity to pursue your education and see your dreams come true!

Crazy how quickly they grow up!

Luchino | Senior Experience
Luchiano's senior session was so much fun! I loved it when his sibs decided to come along!
They all squeezed in my car to drive around downtown hitting fun photos spots!
It's my goal in all of my sessions to bring out my client's personality, especially with my high school seniors. I love it when my seniors have so much fun expressing themselves!

Twin Brothers | Senior Experience
Christopher and Jonathan, twins, graduating this year! It's hard enough sending off one of your kids,
but to have to send of two at the same time?! Knowing they are headed for success helps the sting a little.
These smart boys are definitely focused and undoubtably meet the challenge!
Behind every successful child, you will find parents who have taken the time to invest in their children. So happy for these amazing parents who are seeing their hard work and sacrifice pay off!
Both boys are headed to Orlando to attend UCF this fall.
One in mechanical engineering and the other in computer science.
Daisy | Senior Experience
Daisy met me at the studio to have her hair and makeup done by Amanda @Bebeautybyamanda. She looked amazing! Professional makeup makes a huge difference in the outcome of your photos, it's worth the investment!
Daisy had 3 different outfits chosen. We had decided during her consultation that we would venture downtown Ocala. We found plenty of great backdrops then drove to the top of the parking garage with her gorgeous blue Camaro. She told me her dad challenged her and her brother to work and save their money and who ever saved the amount set first would earn their choice car. (Dad works at Palm Chevrolet! 😉)
This girl is going places! After graduation she plans to move to Gainesville and pursue her business degree. I loved capturing her sweet smile! Congratulations Daisy!!
"Wendy is by far one of the best photographers!! She did my senior photos and did an amazing job and is very flexible with her schedule. She is very easy to work with and made me feel totally comfortable when taking my senior photos!! Highly recommend!!" Daisy Maynard | Forest High School

Matt & Megan
I took a trip to Atlanta this past weekend to visit family and friends. I enjoyed the refreshment and time with some of my favorite people! The first part of my trip included this amazing engagement session on the Chattahoochee River and Piedmont Park! Both provided the perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple.
Engagement sessions are so fun! You can learn a lot about a couple during a shoot. These two are so connected. Matt offers that old fashion chivalry every girl hopes for, and the love and kindness every girl deserves. Megan is so beautiful inside and out! I've loved watching her over the years. She's overcome obstacles and has become a woman of grace and strength. I'm especially excited for their wedding day... because I'm blessed to say these two are mine! ♥️
Congratulations you two! So proud of both of you!
Meadowbrook Senior Kiley | Ocala, Florida
Kiley is an amazing young lady! Athletic, smart and beautiful! We had so much photographing her senior session celebrating all her interests and accomplishments!
Of course, we had to have fun with the flying balloons on top of the parking garage!
Downtown, Ocala, made for the perfect location after a few shots at the studio!
Congratulations Kiley! Can't wait to see where your adventures take you! All the best!
Family Photographer | Roberts Family
I have had the absolute pleasure of photographing this sweet family over the years! They are so much fun to be around! I love big families!! I'm one of six and being with them reminds me of all the fun,
love, and craziness that's involved in the every day. Paige has homeschooled each one and they are all off to a great start with their future careers! So exciting to watch them take flight!

High School Senior | Julianah
I was so honored to meet this young lady! She's an inspiration! Not only did she graduate high school with a long list of honors, but also graduated with her AA degree the same week!! What?! She was a joy to be around and her beauty and smile radiates in these photos! So proud of you JuJu!!

Spring! When temperatures are warming, flowers are blooming and babies are soon to be born!
Such a sweet and exciting time! I love the anticipation and celebrating those beautiful bellies!
After Heidi's struggle to carry two previous pregnancies to term, she remained faithful,
trusting God with His purpose and timing. Life is such a gift,
a beautiful blessing from God. You can see it all over Heidi's face and photos,
this is one blessed woman who has trusted God with the "why's" and is celebrating the gift!
I drove Heidi out to Crystal River Beach. It was still pretty chilly, but she's a trooper and was willing to get in the water and climb on rocks! With the help of my amazing assistant, a simple lighting set up we were able to capture some incredible shots. I love shooting on the coast!
These amazing dresses are owned by our studios. We also have access to additional dress styles and colors. You will feel amazing in these dresses as we capture this incredible season of your life!

The Senior Experience
Each year a team of students are chosen to be a part of our Senior Experience. You'll be photographed in various settings throughout the school year. It's so much fun and you'll meet and work with other students from various high schools in Marion County.
Our 2018/2019 modeling team met out on a local farm. Each girl had their makeup and hair done by Amanda of Bebeautybyamanda.com. We had a blast taking advantage of this gorgeous setting to photograph. Each girl was amazing and brought so much to the team, all so beautiful, inside and out! I'm excited for each one of these girls and what their future holds!

Watch Me Grow | Gabriel, 9 Months
I love the Watch Me Grow program because not only do I get to visit with my new Mom friends, but I get to see these sweet little ones progress in their first year. From the little helpless newborn, to the crawling, pulling up and walking 1 year old! It's crazy how quickly the first year goes!
This 4th session with little Gabriel was so fun! Spring time means kites, flowers and bright happy colors!

Beach sessions have become my absolute favorite!!

The Black Prong, Bronson, Fl | Matt & Shelbie
Fall weddings in Florida are probably my favorite! The weather has cooled and we start to see the evidence of the season with a little bit of color!
Shelbie's wedding details were perfect! With pumpkins, bouquets full of fall foliage and gorgeous burgundy colors for the bridal party! Her rustic theme was a perfect fit with this venue choice. The Black Prong located in Bronson Florida was complete with a barn and rustic decorated reception room. The cute little bridge with the overlook was a perfect location to shower the couple with "falling" leaves! What a fun bridal party!

Ocala, Florida | Teddy & Hayi
As a wedding photographer, sometimes when I'm photographing my young couples,
I try to imagine them celebrating their anniversary in later years. What will their journey look like?
How many kids will they have? How will they stand in the storms?
Having been married now for twenty, I understand how challenging marriage can be, yet I wouldn't change a thing. Looking back on my wedding photos makes me fall in love all over again.
I believe that's why I'm so passionate about my photography. I want that for my young couples.
I want them to fall in love all over again!
Recently a dear friend asked me to photograph her parents to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. I was intrigued. I'm always curious to know people's love stories. This one melted my heart...
When Hayi moved into Teddy's neighborhood he was smitten, She was 13, he was 17 when he
gave her a promise ring. (Pictured above with his wedding band) Seven years later, they married!
Hayi explains a strong, long lasting marriage consists of love and trust.
Congratulations you two! It was such a pleasure celebrating such a wonderful milestone with photos! What a treasure and a legacy for your family! Thank you for sharing your story with me!
*The LOVE sign used in this session was created by Black Pearled Upcycled. Rebeca is so creative, you'll want to check out her products and furniture as well!
Ocala, Florida | Mauricio & Rene
Mauricio and Rene were bringing their families together in marriage, so they wanted their wedding day to celebrate that! All their children were apart of the wedding serving as groomsmen, bridesmaids and flower girls. Having photographed their engagement session (which included all 6 kids), I soon discovered the love they had for one another. Their sense of humor and laughter was so fun to capture as well as their genuine care for one another.
Their wedding ceremony took place at Meadowbrook Church here in Ocala, Florida. An intimate wedding with close friends and family. The ceremony included the traditional elements of communion and the unity candle. After group photos, they made their exit as their guest blew bubbles. We chose to do photos in a beautiful gardens beside the church.
I smile at the thought of their photos framed throughout their house and their large family canvas for all to see! A sweet reminder that second chances are a gift from God! ♡
Citra Hills Golf & Country Club | Cody & Stephanie
Blush pink, pearls and rhinestones! This wedding couldn't have been prettier!
Stephanie was stunning in her Stella York gown! She was such a joy to work with;
so calm and relaxed. Not to mention, SO gorgeous to photograph!
Cody and Stephanie were engaged after connecting on Facebook and Instagram. Stephanie noticed
they shared the same scripture verse on their profile. Gotta love social media! :)
When Cody broke off his previous relationship they started dating, It didn't take long
for Stephanie to realize Cody was the one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.
Cody proposed to Stephanie while on vacation in Orlando. Before dinner they walked
out on the balcony and he dropped down on one knee and proposed! ♥
Their rustic chic wedding was a perfect choice for this down to earth, outdoors, adventurous couple.
The color palette of soft pastels made for a perfect blend for a springtime wedding!
