The meaning

Give me soulmates, love stories, & romantic destinations

Ardensea comes from the the words “ardent” which means to be passionate. Combined with my love of the ocean and weakness to epic love stories, it’s the perfect way to describe what I do. I am extremely passionate about being a wedding photographer and capturing couples in artistic, authentic ways without being obtrusive or disruptive to your wedding day.

On top of being a published wedding photographer, I’m a Vero Beach native, military veteran, travel junkie, and creative entrepreneur. But there is so much more to my story!
