Coraly & MauMau, We don’t even have the words. You are our people. You get us, we get you. Boat rides and face masks and dinners spent together once a year isn’t nearly enough. You two are the first we see when we come back home (Florida) just to be embraced only the way you […]

Lake Baldwin Park Anniversary Session | Florida Wedding Photographer | John and Sayonara
