Many photo sessions and two years later, I have returned to say hello, once again, on this blog. Thankfully, I remain busy in my photography work, but realize more than ever that blogging is definitely not my strong point, but capturing moments is. So…I am just going to leave that right there and share some VERY random images from the Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island, of some past weddings. I don’t believe I ever shared any of these on this site, so enjoy! Again–just random images, with many of these candid, and not the more formal type portraits. I will be sharing some images from some more recent weddings and from some of my family work, both of which I love, soon. So, please come back. And, please reach out if you’d like to talk about having your moments captured right here on beautiful Amelia Island. I love other portrait photography work, too – maternity, couples, hs seniors, children… and even tweens!

Hello! I have returned, at least for a moment, to this blog. I’d like to say I am here to stay, but life always seems to say otherwise. I have written in a journal about 3 times in my life. It was when my kids were little and each time I started anew. Each time, I made it through one day. Then, several years passed. So, I have always had a special admiration for those who write, who write often, and who write well and quickly. None of those are in my list of strengths, so now you know where I am coming from.
Photos, though…now, that is totally different. I love telling stories with my images. So, I am going to share a few from a couple of weddings from last year. I’ll get to this year in about 3 months. Just kidding (I hope). These two weddings have such wonderful stories. However, without words, I hope you can see the joy and the story in the images, themselves.
I titled this blog, All Around Amelia, since these two weddings were photographed on Amelia Island. I love it here, and it seems many others do too, since we have become such a popular destination for weddings and families alike. My 2nd shooter in both weddings was Jensen of http://www.jensenbellphotography.com. He just happens to be my son and always adds a special dimension to the wedding day.
Enjoy the pics!

Prep for this awesome wedding was at a gorgeous private home in downtown Fernandina Beach.
Ceremony was at the United Memorial Methodist Church, Fernandina Beach.
After a trolley ride, almost the length of the island, the reception was held at Walker’s Landing at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation.

Just wanted to share one image from a wedding on October 3. I will follow-up with this and other weddings in the future. I have been busy, busy this last few months, which is great for business, but not so great for my social media time and sharing what I love to do through this blog.
Ashley and Jay were such a joy to photograph. I had the opportunity of photographing their e-session about 2 months ago, so I knew their wedding would be incredible. And, it did not disappoint. What an elegant and fun time was had by all.
Please come back soon, to see images from this and other weddings. I have photographed 4 in the last 13 days, as well as a family session. Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach is a destination spot and becoming more and more popular. Our pristine beaches continue to call people from all over the world, whether for vacation or an elopement or a full-blown wedding.
I am changing up my blog a tad, today. I am featuring a very special wedding that took place at the Ritz Carlton in June of 2015. I always love photographing at the Ritz. It is one of my favorite venues of all time as everything is always ‘done up right’.
I loved meeting and getting to know Mike and Jennifer and learning how they met. Both, Mike, an architect, and Jennifer, a school teacher, are from the Atlanta area. They chose Amelia Island and the Ritz Carlton for their special weekend. And, they chose perfectly. We had an amazing first meeting and it didn’t take long to see why these two are so perfect for each other. I was thrilled and honored to be chosen to document their day.
This blog begins with the time just after the rehearsal dinner. So, it actually begins with dessert (s’mores), where everything should really begin, right? -And, it ends with an amazing sushi bar closing out the wedding reception. Don’t miss that part. It was awesome and delicious. The groom insisted we have some, so we obliged. Okay-so twist my arm. Yum!!!
I believe the story will tell itself as you peruse the images, but you might not realize details such as the custom made rings and the fact that Jennifer surprised Mike by having a friend fly in to sing at the ceremony, and that Mike sang for Jennifer while she sat in the chair waiting for the garter to be removed. And, please don’t miss that very unique groom’s cake. Wow! So many details and so many to thank for such an incredible weekend.
