Scott + Dennis Are Married! | 6.14.15 | Jacksonville Wedding Photographer

Scott and Dennis live across the street from my Grandmother's house {where I grew up and lived for 19 years}, and have been the most amazing, loyal friends to my family since before I was even born. I met them when I was 3 years old {when I moved here from New Orleans}, and this is Scott's favorite story to tell people about me. Apparently, I was a little munchkin in patent leather shoes, a ruffly dress, and long curly locks, and the very first thing I ever said to him was "My name is Paige Elizabeth Dudzic Roberts and I can count to 100 backwards". And I believe I did so, just to prove it. 

This wedding was very special. Not only because of two very special people, but because these two very special people were FINALLY given the right to wed, legally, here in Florida. It has been a long time coming, as they have been together, happily, for 25 years now! 

It was a beautiful, cozy little backyard wedding in Avondale, filled with delicious homemade dishes, family and guests who's hearts and lives have been touched by Scott & Dennis. It was such a privilege to be able to photograph and be a part of their big day. Much love you two!

Kristen + Craig are married! | 5.30.15 | Jacksonville Wedding Photographer

I was asked to second shoot Kristen & Craig's ceremony by my friend Cristy Batchelor, who is just breaking onto the photography scene and needed some extra support. Of course I don't mind helping out a fellow photographer, especially one who is just starting out! The ceremony was very small and private, and so this post will be short and sweet. Congrats to the newlyweds!

Masha + Andrew are married! | 5.30.15 | Jacksonville Wedding Photographer

So, I have to be honest, Masha and Andrew are probably one of the sweetest couple's I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Not to mention, they are so obviously and genuinely in love with each other. They reflect the other's glow, they can't help but smile when they see each other, and all of this love just spilled out during their First Look. 

Funny enough, Masha and I actually went to high school together, but I hadn't seen her since (9 years!) So when she came to me about photographing her wedding I was more than excited. It was a nice little reunion on top of a gorgeous ceremony and reception, I couldn't have been happier to capture their big day. Congratulations again to the sweet newlyweds!
