The best ways to prepare your kids for photoshoots!

1. Bring some cute outfits! Everything from bright colorful outfits to pretty tutus brings out the biggest smiles in little girls- and for the boys bowties and hats make for some adorable and dashing photos!

2. Sometimes props will out the biggest smiles! Your kid's favorite stuffed animals or action figures will make for happy photos.

3. Letting your kid run around will make for some gorgeous and giggly candid shots! Getting to see the excitement and wonder through photos of your kids will be something you treasure for a lifetime.

4. Make sure to bring water and snacks, kids get dehydrated pretty easily and you want to avoid hangry kiddos as much as possible.

5. Make sure to bring your best fun faces! When kids do photos on their own it's best to make some faces behind the camera for the best photos and big smiles!

6. Sometimes the best photos are unplanned! While having a list of family photos in mind is a great idea, there will always be a few unexpected moments. Flexibility during a family photoshoot is super important!

7. And remember, be patient and enjoy the moments! These photos and the shoot itself is a memory being made!

A lot of my clients haven't had professional photos. 

Ashley and James were in the same boat, however, you would have never known it. They have such a chemistry that made my job so easy. The session brought so many smiles and laughter. 

I'm so excited for their wedding!
Their love is truly amazing and it shows in the photos.

Shiloh Farm

Tiffany and Tyler are a match made in heaven, or well, on the hunting fields near Perry. These lucky shots found each other when hunting for something else. Who knew they were both going to big home the big one on that trip? 

Watching them on our engagement session I knew their wedding was going to be one in a million, and boy, was I right. It was an amazing day with the best weather at the most outstanding venue. Travis and I really enjoyed working that day! 

Shilohs Farm is so unique! It offers a bridal cottage, large oaks for just the right amount of shade, rolling fields of green, an adorable white chapel which is attached to the most rustic-chic barn I have ever come across. There is so much love and life on that land.

Summer Photo Shoot Tips Tips for Summer Photo Shoots

Get ready to make memories with Trickey Photography!

With summer coming up it opens the door for some gorgeous backdrops, perfect for family moments, romantic summer weddings, and exciting beach getaways! Here are some tips on how to prepare for summer fun.

1. Dress for the heat! While summer in the South is known for its brutal heat, it does allow for breaking out sundresses, flowy bohemian styles, and sweet skirt outfits. To match the feeling of summer and the flower-y backdrop wear white and bright colors to highlight your surroundings. To bring out the best of summer (and beat the heat) bring an umbrella. It adds a romantic flare to any photo while staying cool.

2. Prepare for the landscape. Outdoor shoots in the park are a lot of fun but need everything from sunscreen and bug spray to backup deodorant to beat the heat and the bugs! 

3. Hydrate as much as possible! Remember to start drinking water the day before for ideal hydration. Bring one or two water bottles per person and make sure to drink your water while walking to the next spot or take hydration breaks between shots!

4. Prevent your makeup from running! The summer heat can cause your makeup to run, using a good setting spray can prevent your makeup from sweating off your face.

5. Go on an adventure! Take a trip to one of the gorgeous beaches around Florida and cool off in the gorgeous crystal clear waters of St. George Island or even Alligator Point! 

6. Shoot for golden hour but don’t forget that summer lighting can bring some gorgeous sunsets! If you’re taking photos at night you can get some magical shots of your kids chasing after lightning bugs or some lovely silhouettes of you and your sweetheart. The possibilities are endless!

7. For summer weddings try using sparklers! Not only do they make for magical photos but they also highlight the beauty of summer while delighting your guests.

8. Enjoy your surroundings. Spray on that bug spray and (safely) tromp through the grass, sometimes going off the beaten path can make for the best photos! 

9. Bring bubbles for the kids, or adults! Bubbles are truly the essence of summer, they cause smiles and are perfect for getting that happy, giggly candid shot!

10. Remember to enjoy the moment, summer is the time for watermelon and fireworks! Capturing these special moments will bring smiles and laughs for years after.

Havana Springs Resort
November 2020


“It’s the little things that matter the most”

You can tell that Amanda and Kevin are in love from the way they look at each other; they speak a love language that most have never heard. It's unending. I'm so thankful to witness such a love. 

Amanda does a job that very few can do; teach. Not only can she teach, but she's the kind of teacher that really makes an impact. My children were not able to have her as a teacher, but they still know her by name and speak very highly of her. 

I've known Kevin and his family for over a decade, (or two). Even as I write this a smile comes to my face, and if you've spent anytime with the Jacques you understand why. What a family! There has very been a dull moment and I am so thankful for all the happy times. I'm so glad you are here today Kevin, I can only image how hard it was for you to get here due to all the medical mountains in your path. You conquered them, well, crushed them really. 

Thank you for letting me photograph this amazing day in your lives.

Their gorgeous wedding with white dresses and tuxes was the perfect way to showcase their unique, loving moments; not only because it was absolutely gorgeous but also because the bride used to work there and got to see some of her close friends at her wedding!

Riley // Lifestyle Newborn // Georgia // Georgia Lifestyle Newborn Photographer Riley Arline

January 2021

I know having a little one shakes up your whole world, and leaves you feeling uncertain or scared, but one things I can promise you is that you will never find another love like the love you share with each one of your children. Each child is special and irreplaceable. Each child will show you new things, new love, new ways of looking at life that will forever reshape who you are. 

Riley is a very lucky girl, Leah and Tyler. You are going to be great parents! 
The dedication and love that you all show to each other will continue to grow, even through sleepless nights. 

I can't wait to see her again soon!

November 2020
Crum Farms, Crawfordville

I knew, JUST KNEW, after meeting Ashleigh and Ryan at their engagement session, that their wedding was going to be perfect. && just look at how these photos turned out. 

The fall color palette that Lily Lou Designs composed is a photographer's dream. The wispy, yet purposeful, floral arrangements on the tablescapes really help take the wedding to whole other level.

However, the icing on the cake, (speaking of, HOW CUTE IS THAT DOG CAKE?), was being in the presence of two incredibly thoughtful, loving and kind individuals on such a memorable day. Ashleigh and Ryan's relationship just makes sense; you get it from the moment you meet them. You can really see that they not only love each other, but they respect each other as a team. 

This was such a fun wedding for Trickey Photography to photograph and video. I really enjoy when we get to be wedding videographers as well. As an artist, I feel like I get to fill in some of the spaces.

It is always incredible when a new vendor enters the wedding industry in our area. There are so many talented, thoughtful, and driven business owners that surround and support our area. There is so much love to give!

The Barn at Hilltop Acres is no exception to this. The owners are not only a completely adorable couple, but they are also a great addition to what our wedding industry can offer. They put so much thought and consideration into building.

The venue has:  a bridal suite, a groom suite (yes, gentlemen, you actually have a place to get ready), warming kitchen, ceremony site, covered reception area, picture perfect backgrounds, plenty of parking, and great areas for photos! 

This venue is definitely one of my new faves!

South Eden Plantation
October 2020

This family, this amazingly wonderful family, is one in a million.
I've been blessed with getting to know them through church and through our home team (church small group). They have helped me through so many troubling times and they've cheered with me through the wonderful times. Constantly, they open their homes and hearts to others. I am so thankful for them and their love. 

When Shannon scheduled her annual holiday photos with me, she wanted something with luxury and charm. There is no better place for that than South Eden Plantation. South Eden is rich in history and gives a welcome home vibe to all that enter its gates.

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."- Elizabeth Stone, teacher and author. 

No truer words could ever be spoken about parenthood. Watching you grow up from a curly-haired cutie to a beautiful young woman has been one of my and your dad's greatest honors. Time and time again, we are in awe of your beautiful spirit that brightens every room you enter and your determination to succeed at both school and sports. The compassion you show others is inspiring. Seeing you firsthand tend to the needs of the children in Nicaragua during our family mission trip was one of our proudest moments. It cemented in you a passion to not only help those who are less fortunate, but it also enabled you to grow and mature spiritually. 

Your favorite bible verse has always been Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." We hope this verse stays with you throughout your life's journey and serves as a reminder of all that God has in store for you. We cannot wait to see your next chapter unfold, His blessings for you and all of the amazing things you will accomplish. This is your story, write it well. 

From Dad and Shannon

A wedding is a glorious way to start a morning! Especially, when the wedding has DONUTS and swords.

It's this tiny park on High Road, and from the moment you park and start walking down the trail to enter the park, you feel like you're entering a new world. It's amazing oasis. 

Mary and Sydney did a wonderful job with the girls hair and make-up. Don't they look perfect? The flowers from Mrs. Jodi really tie all the color of the day together. && the dress from Absolute Haven Bridal is the cherry on top!

A day full of color and laughter; Ryan and Lauren said "I Do!" 

The Park Ave Inn is an absolutely adorable venue. The light that comes into the bridal suite is breathtaking. The whole building has a darling historical vibe that makes you feel like you're not in Tallahassee anymore. It's truly a wonderful place.

Lauren and Ryan picked the Edison for their ceremony and reception site! The Edison provides an all-in-one wedding experience, which makes the planning process a lot easier. They have a fun urban look that brings a fun twist to any occasion.  Not to mention, the food and drinks are spot on! 

Between the stylish details from Terri Smith Details and all the brilliant and bright flowers from A Country Rose, the whole building looked like a dream.

My dear friend, Melinda, with Abernathy Entertainment, ALWAYS brings the fun! There's never a dull moment with the ladies from Abernathy! They are always super flexible and easy to work with; which makes events so much more enjoyable. 

And to pull it all together and make sure everything runs smoothly, you have the great Amanda Reeves! Amanda is a super amazing lady with a heart of gold. She's also extremely experienced with weddings, which is perfect when looking for a wedding planner/coordinator. 

All in all, Lauren and Ryan know how to have a wedding! It was truly, and completely, a wonderful day with so much love!

South Eden Plantation
May 2020

Anyone that knows me, knows that South Eden Plantation is near and dear to my heart; since it's where Travis and I made our family whole. So when Kristine, with Beauty and Grace, reached out to me about doing a bridal session with Tamara, there was NO way I could pass this up. && This was such a fun bridal session with Tamara.

White Weddings kindly donated 3 dresses for us to use, and each one is stunning in their own way. My favorite is the over the shoulder dress. It gives such a simple elegance vibe, and photographs really well! 

Elle, with Missy Gunnels Flowers, did an epic job on the flowers. I'm not sure how she did it, but the bouquets perfectly complimented the dresses. The pink bouquet really accented the slightly blush wedding dress.

Kristine, with Beauty and Grace, really showed her master skills! She was able to show off all the best wedding hair styles while still perfectly highlighting each dress. I was extremely impressed! I mean, looks at that fishtail braid! && The way Kristine took the braid and magically turned it into a cute updo; AMAZING. I think it's a great idea for brides to do during their wedding day!

All of these vendors really know what they're doing! I can't wait to do another session with them!

There were different games and challenges to see who would win the trophy. This was the first time we have seen something like, and definitely think more should do it.

Cascades Park
Surprise Proposal 
February 2020

One of the best parts about my job is photographing moments in life that can never, ever be duplicated. 

I met Kyle a few months ago when he visited my church on behalf of Teen Challenge - a really great organization, if you don't know about it, check out the link after the photos. I felt led to help Teen Challenge with whatever photo needs they may have. A month or so later, he asked I would photograph Teen Challenge's new car wash establishment in town. (Also, they kindly cleaned my car while I was there photographing! && did a WONDERFUL job)

So when he reached out again, I had no idea it would be for something personal; I expected more amazing Teen Challenge fun-ness. Boy, was a I wrong! He blessed me by asking if I would photograph him proposing to his beautiful and kind, at the time, girlfriend, Brittany. & on VALENTINE'S DAY no less! This is like a photographers dream come trueeee! 

Congrats Brittany and Kyle!

Jessica and I had more in common than I knew;
one very large thing was that we both lost our original venue when it shut down without warning last fall.
Thankfully, she and I both found extremely LOVELY venues. *Keep scrolling to see how perfect Highgrove Farms is*

I firmly believe that being Andrew and Jessica's photographer was a God thing. Especially, once I got to know them a little more. I found it really interesting that they both worked at Winshape, which in my opinion is one of the best Christian camps, well camps in general, a parent could send their child to. My children both ADORE it! & Andrew is a songwriter and singer, who mainly does gospel songs.

How cute is this creature?!
Daniel, you are one lucky little boy! Your mommy and daddy would do anything for you. 

I was so honored to be Shelby and Michael's wedding photographer a few years ago, so I bet you could imagine how honored I was to photographer their little man! Shelby and Michael were so kind to let me into their home, which is adorable, btw. 

Little Daniel was perfect during the session.

The Hunter's // Wedding // Goodwood Museum // Tallahassee Wedding Photographer Evan & Christa

August 2019
Goodwood Museum and Gardens

May all your days be happy ones! Great health and every good blessing to you.
May the roof above never fall in; May we below never fall out.
May there always be work for your hands to do. May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine upon your window pane. May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near to you and May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
- Cheers! From Trickey Photography 

Evan and Christa were so much fun to work with. They have a very different style and went into their big day with a completely different mindset then what we see in the South. It was really fun to watch them in their traditions. The Goodwood Museums made a perfect location for their very intimate setting. 

They picked the Lovely Wedding Package.
We also did a short wedding highlight video for them.
