Thank you for taking a moment to pop by. How is the wedding planning?
These days can be a whirl of excitement and a tiny bit overwhelming as all of the pieces of your perfectly designed concepts become reality. That floral garland isn't going to just create itself.
I am obsessed with finding beauty in every little moment. Capturing your grace, his charm, your blush, his dimples,. Angles and light dance together to freeze the feelings of the moment.
The loveliest weddings take me everywhere from Charleston, South Carolina down to the Florida Keys. I love each little romantic adventure.
Enough about me. What about you? Tell me every dreamy detail of your day.
My little studio space in Ormond Beach, Florida
Splashing in sparkling bright blue water.
Dancing barefoot in our living room to music spinning on the record player.
Exploring and shopping in new cities full of history and architectural charm.
Trying out a new café with my closest girlfriends.
Morning lap swim workouts with sun glitter.
Car windows rolled down with salty sea air whipping strands of hair.
Date nights with live music and long dreamy conversations.
Strolling cobblestone streets with my fingers wrapped around good coffee.
Barefoot walks on a sandy beach under the light of a full moon.
Family nights at the beachside Mexican restaurant, Giggling over chips and queso.
Crushing hard on all the pretty in Home Goods and Nordstrom Rack.
Boating to Disappearing Island for lazy day picnics.
Napping to the sound of the ocean waves under a striped beach umbrella.
Peek into more of my life via my South_bydebi Instagram Account. Stories from my every day Florida life, plus alllll the swimming.
My childhood was filled with Florida sunshine and coastal adventures. this place where imagination ignites. Hammocks transform into covered back wagons and swimming pools turn little girls into mermaids.
College studies took me to Michigan where I majored in Communications. I met a cute Canadian. who I would later marry.
Then, I was off to China. This was a year of tremendous adventure. The birth of my obsesession for bubble tea and jiaozi.
That cute Canadian and I started dating long distance. Very long distance.
We married in January of 2006, a wedding designed with mock-ups on Microsoft Word. Totally old school and pre-Pinterest.
We resided in Ontario for over seven years.
This is where the humble beginnings of my photography blossomed. With the kindest and most creative of clients, I found my perfect career match. Even though it was cold. Like, really cold.
In 2013 we moved back to Florida, to my home. The sweet coastal town of Ormond Beach.
Life is always full of sunny adventures for the littles - all four of them. That's right, two boys and two girls. Our days are full of swimming pools, beach bumming, spontaneous dance parties, and my wonderful gift of a job.
Every day I am so grateful to capture the most precious of moments.
Life is a little messy, a little loud, with lots of sandy toes. In every moment there is beauty to be found.
