What's up, I'm Josie!
I’m a wedding, elopement & lifestyle photographer based in Central Florida available for travel. Fun fact: I have been married since 2006, and with my hubby since 2000. (Talk about being a lover of love)! Our love brought us two little boys that are 12 and 10 years old. My why for being a photographer, is because I have been an artist my whole life. I was stoked to find an artistic medium that speaks to my soul in that year of 2011. I then went full time in the year of 2015. Fast forward to today and many hard years of work, I now a full time business. Quirky things about me.. I would describe my work as a modern, editorial, artistic and cinematic.
My favorite are the small and intimate unique wedding or elopements. I enjoy couples that go against the grain and don’t worry about traditions. Same with lifestyle sessions, I adore the wild and care free spirits. Spending time getting to know people in love is the best part about what I do. I am inspired by raw emotions, adventures and beautiful locations. The best thing about shooting for me, is the candid moments. I am not really into that posed stuff, as you see.
When I am not shooting, you can find me spending time with my family of four and floppy eared pitty named Aloe.
Developing imagery that exposes these things, is what I live for.
My work is an expression of what I am most passionate about: storytelling, love and passion. I see beauty in everything and everyone. I have been photographing couples and families for the last 5 years, full time. My joy is capturing love, joy, emotion and sharing that all in one image.

From the very beginning, Josie was an absolute dream. She was so easy to communicate with, always responded quickly, and was so sweet and professional.
Leading up to the wedding, she kept us on track with our timeline and worked tirelessly with our planner to make our wedding day run as smoothly as possible.
On the day of, she showed up and had an incredible calmness about her that made me feel so comfortable and ready for whatever the day had for us. She moved quickly to get all of the photos we asked for and then some and, despite the rain, captured our day flawlessly. We got our gallery back so soon after our wedding and she blew our expectations away. She captured the pure emotion of every moment and we are so thankful she used her amazing talent to give us photos that will last a lifetime. We cannot recommend Josie enough.
