Jacksonville Wedding and elopement Photographer

capturing authentic moments... with tropical vibes


Hello, I’m Franki, an award winning Jacksonville wedding photographer with 10+ years experience! I started shooting professionally circa 2005 at a portrait studio in Orlando, during which I majored in Fine Art with a specialization in photography at UCF. I moved to NY after graduating and instantly fell in love with wedding photography. As much as I love NYC, I just couldn’t stay away from those beautiful FL beaches. What can I say, I’m a beach girl at heart.


Your photographer is one of the most important vendors you will hire for your wedding day. It is essential that you choose one you trust to capture your day exactly as you imagine. So have a look around to see if we'll be a good fit. If you have any questions, just send them my way. I'd love to hear from you!

"Not only is her work amazing and beautiful, she is the kindest and friendliest person to work with. She truly understands your vision and works with each of her couples on achieving the perfect photos to remember your day." - Katie M.

How to Plan an Elopement

Before we talk about how to plan an elopement, let’s talk about what it means to elope. If you ask your grandparents, they might say secretly running away to get married against your parents’ wishes (can we just take a moment to talk about what bad-asses our grandparents were??). Yes, some people do still run off and secretly get married in the name of love (hooray!), and yes, we would still call that an elopement. But our generation has completely reimagined...

let's talk.

Now that you’ve gotten to know me, I’d love to hear more about you! Share your love story. I’m here to answer all of your questions. Just use this contact form below to send me a message.
