Meet The Team

At A Glance

XO Phototography is a family owned and operated business. In 2011 I married my best friend (Together since 8/2000). He was a self-taught, amazing cook furthering his expertise in the culinary industry as a chef in hopes of opening his own restaurant. He was in the process of enhancing his cake decorating skills and I thought how fun to provide wedding services and work side by side with one another....that's when the bigger dream began. In the near future we hope to open our own restaurant/all inclusive wedding venue! Currently offering Cakes, Catering, DJ, Photography!

Meet The Team

Our goal is the same whether we are working together or independently to capture all of your session/event memories.

About Me/Behind The Scenes

When I'm not shooting, I'm a wife to my wonderful husband, a mother of four, a sister to three awesome younger sisters, a daughter, a friend, and an ultrasound technologist. I enjoy the little things life has to offer and I'm a dreamer at heart! I love the ocean, but not for the food....I love the crashing waves, warm sand, and sea air! Our big dream is in the works and we look forward to sharing that progress...until then, I look forward to meeting you and your friends/families and capturing moments, turning them into memories!! ~XO
