Misty shot her first wedding at the young age of seventeen and knew instantly it was going to be a lifetime career for her. That was a little over twenty three years ago. Fast forward ten years later and her husband, partner and best friend Nelio joined the team. Together they have a combined 34 years experience shooting weddings.
They currently live on the outskirts of Orlando in the quaint little town of St. Cloud with their four daughters and son.
Misty has dedicated a lifetime to providing timeless memories to her couples and is deeply honored and moved to have won, with her husband, so many awards and accolades over the years doing something they truly love. Some of these awards include being voted Best Photographer in Central Florida by Wesh 2 A-List, being inducted into the Knot "Best of Weddings" Hall of Fame in 2015 and having won the Wedding Wire Couples choice awards every year consecutively since 2011 when the competition first started.
From lavish celebrity events to small intimate destination weddings Misty and Nelio have had the privilege of photographing special occasions both big and small all over the world. Their work has been published both nationally and internationally and can be seen in magazines and on popular wedding blogs all across the world.
In addition to their love for photography Misty is also a mentor and child advocate to the homeless and orphaned children of Central Florida. She has dedicated her entire adult life to helping children and giving a voice to the voiceless. She currently runs the Heart Gallery of Central Florida which helps to aid in domestic adoption and finding forever homes for the orphaned children of CFL and has adopted four children of her own which she met through her work with the heart gallery. Misty also runs a program at the homeless shelter called Butterflies and Bluejays where she teaches values and virtues to the homeless children of Central Florida. In addition to both the Heart Gallery and her program at the shelter she is also a proud sponsor, volunteer, team leader and/or member of these great organizations Help-Portrait, Thirst Relief International, Black Sheep Bride and Compassion International where she sponsors a beautiful young lady named Bethlehem from Ethiopia.
