A few weeks ago we woke up bright and early to meet up with Hilary and Austin and shoot some fabulous portraits in the small town of Waldo, FL just outside of Gainesville.  Here are just a few quick sneak peeks for you all.

Jacksonville Shoot Club


Hello lonley little blog.  We are so sorry to have neglected you for so long.  This summer has been busy as ever and sadly the blog has taken a back seat lately.  Well do not fret dear blog readers we have plenty of visual deliciousness for you!

As some of you may know Brad and I, along with our wonderful friends Jeremy & Kara Pennington of Kara Pennington Photography recently started www.JaxShootClub.com.  We had our first shootout last month in downtown Jacksonville’s Friendship Park.  We were absolutely overwhelmed by the amazing turn out we had for our very first meetup.  Over 35 people were in attendance all ready to shoot, experiment and have fun hanging out with other creative professionals.  This months shootout is coming up soon and we already have 80 RSVP’s for the event.  We are so excited to see so many local photographers getting involved and working together to hone their craft.  On top of being surrounded by so many incredible photographers we were blessed to have other vendors volunteer their time and services to our shoot.  We provided 5 models for everyone to shoot.  One bride and groom, one engagement session couple and one solo bride for bridal portraits.  All our models graciously volunteered their time and were incredibly accommodating to all our crazy photography demands.  Hair and make up was done by makeup artist Faythe Mesic.  The incredible Josie of Anything with Plants and Flowers donated three gorgeous boquets for our models to carry.  Also, our solo bride Lauren wore an amazing dress Alvina Valenta dress and Lori London veil from Solutions Bridal in Gainesville.  We could not have asked for a more beautiful evening to be shooting downtown. Here are a few shots of the beautiful florals from the evening.

One thing I loved about this shootout was that Brad and I split off into separate groups.  We so love shooting together and feel like our work compliments each other all the time so it was exciting to see what we came home with after spending the entire evening shooting entirely separate.  I know I always say it on here but seriously, I am always blown away by what a phenomenal photographer my husband is.  So I wanted to dedicate this post to his images from the shootout.  I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do.  Stay tuned for my post coming soon.

Out of the Office


Hi Everyone,

I know its been ages since we’ve posted a blog but its been super busy in the LDV office lately. Right now, we are in Chicago for some work and a little vacation visiting one of my favorite people in the whole wide world… Catie! She is one of those friends that you grew up with and have known for so long they are no longer friends, but family. Its been 4 years since I’ve been to the windy city and I’m so happy to be back here with Brad and enjoying a little time away from the office. Not to worry though… there will be plenty of visual goodness coming to the blog very soon. Also since today is the 8th anniversary of the tragedy of 9-11 we do hope you will all take a few moments out of your day today to remember the events of that horrible day in history. Its incredible how quickly those 8 years have flown by and yet how vivid the memories can still be. Maybe not all of our families were directly affected by those events, but our lives, our country and our world has been forever changed.
