All the yes’s to a Florida trip in January. My friend Ruth so kindly invited me to tag along with her while she traveled to St. Petersburg to photograph a wedding. There wasn’t much thought involved when she asked. It was an instant uh, YES. Although the weather was unseasonably chilly for Florida, the change of scenery and time spent with such a kindred spirit will warm my heart for a long time. We wandered the sleepy beach towns getting equally giddy over brightly colored walls and swaying palm trees. My true happy place. Even though I wasn’t needed to help shoot the wedding she was there for, the bride + groom graciously invited me to attend their intimate, dreamy beach ceremony with dinner afterward.
So much love + thankfulness for my insanely talented friend for inviting me along. And all the heart eyes to this coastal town for lifting my blue winter spirits with it’s colorful, tropical vibes. Chilly or not, Florida you’re a real gem.
