Brandon + Chels, Long Boat Key Anniversary Session


Chelsea & Brandon are from South Dakota and are crazy, crazy, in love. 

I knew this when Chels, a photographer herself, reached out about me photographing a session for them during her family’s annual trip to Anna Maria Island. She was so excited for Brandon to come along for the first time to the island that she’s grown up loving and meeting them was so fun because they were completely soaking in the experience together. 

These two met on Tinder (crazy, right?!) and they’ve had an amazing year together. We celebrated with champagne at sunset on my favorite spot (unfortunately called Beer Can Island– ha!) on Long Boat Key. The driftwood and mangrove paths were so romantic and the sunlight gave us a breath of that warm, summer air.  

Chels + Brandon it was wonderful to meet you! Thanks so much for trusting me with this special portraits. You guys are the best and I hope to see you on the island again soon!!
