Introducing: Anchored Joy

Hello world!
I'd like to introduce you all to a beautiful new creation: the Anchored Joy blog

This blog is a place for my friend Alisia and I to share photo projects that we've been working on together.  This will include posts from weddings we shoot as a team, collaborative portrait shoots that we brainstorm and style together, photo shoots we do of each other peeking into our personal world, and what we call "interpretations" (one photo from each of us interpreting a word of choice).

So what's the name mean?  
We settled on "Anchored Joy" because there were 2 important aspects we wanted to include...  

1. We love Jesus first and foremost.  And our hope is anchored in Him.
2. We try to portray joy through our photography.... and it just so happens that we both share the middle name, Joy.

Come take a look!  Click Here

Devin + Elizabeth . Sarasota Wedding Photographer

Congratulations to our friend Devin and his new bride Elizabeth!  It was such a lovely beach wedding.  The rain held off long enough to do all of our outdoor necessities (ceremony and portraits) before it POURED, when we were safely inside for the evening.  Thanks God!

















I loved this surprise cake-smash moment...You're in big trouble, Devin.

Another highlight of the evening..."Billy Jean" dance off....

Johnson Family . Sarasota Family Photography

It was a reunion for the Johnson family and myself, as I took their family portraits about 4 years ago, and I hadn't seen them since.  
But this time they had a new addition, baby Clark!  
They are such a sweet family.  Check out their joy...
