I’ve recently had this trend occurring where I get to create Tybee Island family photography for personal, dear friends. I am so grateful for this repeated honor. This beautiful family I have called my friends pretty much since I moved to the area several years ago. They live for spending time together on the beach and are full of great quotes, laughter and each has a very unique independent personality worth getting to know.

Thank you all for being my friends, for bringing me joy with your presence and for always being yourselves.

To be able to create Tybee Island photography for Tom and Tina and their beautiful children, Owen and Mason, is such an honor for me. I’ve had the privilege of calling them my friends for over a decade. Beyond photographing the milestones in their lives…their wedding day…celebrating their children… Beyond that I have the gift of so many beautiful memories of quiet, simple moments in their presence along with all the goodness they radiate. I’ll be forever in their debt.

Tybee engagement photography involving surprise proposals isn’t something as common as you might think. In my five years as a resident I’ve only had the privilege of photographing three of them. Like the recent days that brought us all outside to soak in the warm air of Spring on its way, Brittney and Matt were deeply appreciated visitors to Tybee Island.

I have to say that Brittney’s reaction, her lack of noticing me for what seemed like several minutes, and her inability to hide her very fresh emotions really made this a pleasure to photograph. Matt was also the perfect mirror for Brittney’s excitement and enthusiasm. I think, like me, he was happy to see everything went as planned and this was their moment to celebrate. Thank you both for the great honor of allowing me to bear witness to such a big day in your lives.
