Lifestyle Film Photographer in Tallahassee | Weddings + Families
I'm Emily, a Tallahassee transplant from Indiana. I love all things coastal, bold patterns and my two rescue pups. I'm a film photographer with small-town roots and big city dreams. I binge watch Impractical Jokers while drinking hard cider. Gold spray paint and palm trees are my happy place. If it involves coastlines, cake or cocktails - count me in!
The turkey’s taken care of, the cranberry sauce has set and there are half a dozen pies all boxed up, waiting to be devoured. All that’s left are the drinks — and this year, water’s not going to cut it. You’ll be needing something strong, because your Uncle Bob’s over and before you get the chance to greet him, he’ll be rifling through the drawer of your night table.
These 15 cocktails below are prime for Thanksgiving (and will work all season long) because they’re filled to the brim with fall flavors. They’ll warm you right up, add a decorative cheer to the table and make Uncle Bob (or any half-welcomed guests, for that matter) a bit more tolerable.
I’m so excited to announce Mini Sessions taking place November 4, 9am-6pm at Cascades Park. Meet at Lot 61, at the intersection of E Bloxham St and S Gadsden St. And it’s pet-friendly, so you can include your fur-kiddo too which, if you’re like me, is very important!
This is the perfect opportunity for you to have your holiday portraits done – AND have holiday cards made with the photos at the same time!

What a beautiful little family the Szeliga’s are! Yomaima and Josh welcomed precious baby Eleanor exactly five months prior to her baptism. I was so excited to be there to capture such a big moment in their lives. Eleanor was such a doll, all smiles and happy even though she hadn’t slept the night before. She finally caught a few moments’ sleep while she was being baptized though 🙂 The day was equally gorgeous, overcast and beautiful light that filled the entrance and lent itself to some truly stunning images. Eleanor is named after her bisabuela (great-grandmother) and I’m so glad Eleonor could attend the baptism, she stole kisses from her great-grandbaby the entire time, making my heart melt a little each time. Thank you Maima for letting me part of this special moment in Eleanor’s life – your family is beautiful.
Wow! What a stunningly beautiful, unique take on a Vow Renewal. It’s always an honor and so fun to work with friendors (friend vendors), especially on styled shoots. Leanna over at Cake Me With You had been dreaming up this gorgeous event for several months, so that gives you an indication of the amount of heart, soul, time and talent that went into this. The models, a real-life married couple, are just beautiful – inside and out. The florals! Oh the florals, the way they cascade down from the copper table decor. This venue – so old, historic Florida and so perfect for this theme. This Moon + Stars celestial inspired Vow Renewal is truly out of this world – check it out for yourself!
This cute little wedding was so fun to capture! It gave me vintage vibes with modern twists. Her ring, which was Mitchell’s grandmothers gorgeous set paired beautifully with the color palette of soft pinks, light greens and navy and is so timeless. Yet Meghan paired it with the very trendy rose gold and fabric draped from the ceiling. This Tallahassee wedding was quaint, not overdone and put all the focus on what matters most: two families coming together to celebrate this new, growing love.
Her bouquet was full of peonies and hydrangeas in romantically soft pinks and white. Next to his classic navy suit, they looked stunning. Not to mention his fun bowtie – love!
His mother and brother got a few moments with Mitchell before walking down the aisle. She pinned his boutonniere on as they shared laughs and happy tears. Meghan’s beautiful hair was braided into a crown and her long curls cascaded down the back of her beautiful dress.
The church was surrounded by perfectly manicured, yet simple landscaping and featured full-wall windows. The perfect backdrop for these detail shots of her gown.
This couple is so cute, and so in love. So easy-going and stress-free. We spent time, just me and the two of them, capturing their first moments together after saying “I do” walking around the church and talking about how they loved planning this together.
And that ring! Meghan is so lucky to have Mitchell’s grandmother’s keepsake for her own ring now. It’s beautifully vintage yet timeless, like the whole wedding was.
Thank you, Meghan + Mitchell for letting my capture your Tallahassee wedding. It was beautiful, and refreshing, to attend such a light, romantic, simple ceremony. Many, many years of love to you two xoxo
