Kraft Azalea Garden || Winter Park, FL

Couple: Veronica & Halston

I’m roughly about two blogs away from being completely up-to-date which is a massive feat at this moment in time. I’ve been wanting to develop a better blogging voice for couple of years now but somehow feeling fenced by how completely behind I was with current and present posts. I’m a little more optimistic that this teeny bit of freedom will allow some small changes over the coming weeks and I’m excited to see what unfolds for The Blog. But until then, I have a very lovely engagement session captured for Veronica & Halston who possess a quirky and fun bond between the two of them which radiated throughout their entire session. This weather the last few weeks has been been torture around the later afternoon, of course the time at which all sessions tend to start, so we wound up with an early morning kick off. I must say that although the humidity remains (it’s still Florida!), the light is just fabulous. I will certainly be making note to shoot more often in the early morning. Of course in July/August, it means a start time of about 6:45am-7am to catch that stunning sunrise but Veronica & Halston were complete troopers and I think we ended up with some stellar results overall. We stared off the session at Kraft Azalea Park in Winter Garden with a little picnic set-up Veronica had brought and the two of them popped a little celebratory champagne, because what else is an excited future Bride and Groom to do on a very early Sunday morning!? (Mimosas anyone? ;) ) And after a venture and frolicking about the park, we proceeded to Rollin’s College for a location switch-up and outfit change. I’ve been playing with the Canon 85mm 1.8 for a little while now and I do quite love it. At some point I’ll give a proper review but I did make a point to add it to my regular lens rotation during this particular session. Absolutely can’t wait to to photograph Veronica & Halston’s Wedding in a couple of months! I can tell it’s going to be a a good one. ;)

Incarnation Catholic Church || Tampa, FL

I don’t always photograph huge traditional Weddings. Occasionally, I get the opportunity to photograph the small understated days too. I capture both in exactly the same way as much as humanly possibly. The luxury of the more intimate nuptials are that the time constraints are either non-exsistant or not just felt as dramatically as the “typical” day. This allows one to breath a bit clearer and see even more than what’s in front of you which is great exercise and reminder for future events. Christine and Greg’s day in particular reminded me of a lot things that I’m aware of automatically and of things I should do at every Wedding I encounter. It’s so easy to get lost in moments and let the small stories sounding that moment get engulfed by the magic of it all. But this day made me take more of a step back, exercise the things I already know, and push myself to try different things. This gorgeous day started off in Tampa, FL at Whole Aveda salon with Christine, her family, and bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done. It was the first time I had ever met Christine as we had communicated only via email by that point. She was as friendly and warm as I expected she would be and more, I just knew it was going to be a lovely day to capture some great moments. Later, Christine & Greg exchanged vows and rings during their beautiful ceremony at Incarnation Catholic Church and they proceeded to take their first steps down the aisle as husband and wife. A small reception was held for the happy couple upon the roof of Tampa Westin overlooking the water. Photos were concluded before the reception which I hear was a lovely evening overall. I enjoyed capturing this day for Christine and Greg immensely. I can’t wait to be back in Tampa for a Wedding again in the near future!

Jami & Chad wed in one of my favorite venues to photograph, Paradise Cove. They planned their day from Virginia so initially we had Skyped in order to officially meet and discuss their Wedding Day further. Then July of last year, we photographed their stunning engagement session around downtown Orlando and in a little under a year they were back in Orlando again but this time to finally exchange vows to one another surrounded by friends and family. A first look was opted for as a sunset ceremony time was selected. We’d had quite a bit of rain over the days leading up to the Wedding but as luck would have, it stayed beautiful all day long. Hot? Yes. But completely stunning throughout. So, after a sweet session capturing Jami & Chad enjoying the excitement of seeing each other before the Ceremony, we followed up with photographing family and bridal party images. Chad and his groomsmen looked all dapper and pressed in their light grey suits & purple ties while Jami and her girls completely stole the show in their magenta floor-length gowns and striking good looks. All types of fierce and fun made up this awesome bridal party. Chad even chose his sweet dad to be his best man! After Jami and Chad committed themselves to one another beneath wind-swept Spanish moss, the Florida sunset, and tiki torches, officially married images were captured of them venturing about the property along the waterfront until it was time for them to join their friends and family for the reception party. The entire day was a dream to photograph and Jami & Chad were one of the sweetest couples I’ve been able to capture this year. The love and connection they have between one another is blatant and a joy to be able to document.

An At-Home Engagement Session || Downtown Orlando, FL

Couple: Allison & Shamir

Here are some of my favorite images from Allison and Shamir’s home engagement session. Now, I always try to encourage couples to pick a location for their engagement session that means something to them. This could be where they had a first date, where they became engaged, or just anywhere that possess’ qualities that make their relationship unique. I love when couples have ideas for their session that are a little outside the box. Allison & Shamir were no exception here. We through around the idea of photographing the both of them in front of their first home together which is very much out of the ordinary and completely sentimental….two things I love to have included into an engagement session! Allison and Shamir also have some gorgeous natural light pouring into certain areas of their home so it made for some really lovely images of the two of them. I thought it also might tell a sweet story to incorporate some celebratory champagne for them both to enjoy as they basked in the loveliness of being engaged and the excitement of their approaching Wedding day. Another idea I like to encourage is an outfit change midway through an engagement session. I think if you have a dressy outfit and a semi-dressy outfit to change into then it brings some dynamic to your photos overall and changes up the look a little bit. So after an outfit change we then ventured to a nearby park to capture some images that included something else they enjoy together; biking! :)

Allison and Shamir are so effortlessly stylish and loving towards one another I could have photographed them all afternoon (which I almost did!) These two were such a dream to photograph and just can’t wait to capture their Wedding day which I just know is going to be so stunning & fun.

I honestly can’t wrap my head around how long ago this Wedding feels but it was really only this past May that myself and Jamie ventured off on the Disney Dream a whole month after we had just got back from the last one. :) This particular wedding cruise was documented for Katy & Chris who planned their Disney Dream Wedding from Atlanta, GA. A small group of very close family and friends joined them on this stunning adventure and we were there to capture it all! Their actual wedding was held the day we arrived at the Bahamas onboard the ship in Outlook Lounge. This is the highest deck you can get to on the ship and the perfect setting for an indoor Disney Ceremony. The back windows inside the room look out over the ship towards Currents Bar and the adult areas which is convenient and favorable if you’re looking for little to no distractions during your vowel exchange. :) Because of the timing of their Ceremony, Katy & Chris had opted for a first look which was amazing because we had the opportunity and time to photograph all formal images pre-ceremony with all that natural Bahamian light. We utilized the Deck 3 elegant porthole walkway next to Royal Palace to capture this sweet moment and it turned out gorgeously! We then ventured about the ship to capture Katy & Chris in all the best spots and there are just SO many to chose from onboard. And after a very sweet ceremony, Katy & Chris were announced back into Outlook for cake and champagne with their guests. The next day we met with the newlyweds early in the morning to capture a “day after” session on the Castaway Cay Island which also turned out amazingly. These two were the absolute sweetest and a joy to photograph. We were honored to have been able to capture this amazing experience for them.

Here are just a handful of highlight images from Laura & Josh’s Downtown Orlando Wedding day that we captured in May this year. This intimately sized wedding started off with Laura, her bridesmaids, and mum getting their hair and make-up prettified by the lovely Patricia of  LeJeune Artistry and her assistant. The process began across Lake Eola and two minutes away from the Wedding venue at EO Spa. This was the perfect location to photograph some of Laura’s bridals and pre-ceremony images with her girls too. I then met up with Josh and his dapper groomsmen to photograph them together before the start of the Ceremony at 310 Lakeside. I adored all of the details on this sweet day. It was simple yet modern and further confirmed my love for stripes on a Wedding day. :) Laura looked stunning in her Lazaro trumpet gown which is actually advertised as a bridesmaids dress but with some glitzy beading attached to the sweetheart neckline it became the perfect dress on her. There’s nothing like simplicity when it comes to your Wedding day look. A little goes a long way always! :) Laura and Josh’s Ceremony was a tad windy but none of that mattered because it was oh so very sweet with the best of surroundings. After some formal images we had a small amount of time to venture a quarter of the way around Eola to capture the gorgeous newlywed’s about the Downtown area. The day was perfectly lit all day long that I’m convinced it’s one of the best times of year to get married in Florida. It was a pleasure to be able to capture it all for this extremely delightful couple.

Here we have the very beautiful wedding of Erin & Mark. You may remember their  Lakeland engagement session which feels like forever ago now but these two sweeties finally exchanged vows at the stunning Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-hills, Florida. This is a really lovely golf resort with Mexican themes and Spanish Colonial architecture throughout. The staff here are super friendly and helpful which is always an added bonus! Erin & Mark’s Wedding day started with me photographing Erin and her bridesmaids having their hair done and make-up applied by Kristy Alonzo. Kristy and her team’s beauty work is flawless plus they’re fast which I love! Once Erin was helped into her gorgeously unique Oleg Cassini wedding dress we decided to place her dad for an impromptu first look which is one of the sweetest moments I get to photograph occasionally. Erin & Mark had selected soft pink as one of their wedding colors to match the hints of pink scattered throughout Erin’s dress. This color came together so nicely against the Mission Inn backdrop and also in the bridal bouquets which Bloomingdale Flowers did an amazing job on. After a joyfully teary Ceremony, Erin & Mark were announced as Husband and Wife, took photographs together with family and their bridal party, and then were able to have some sweet moments together about the property while I captured it all for them. :) Erin, Mark, and their wedding attendants definitely knew how to keep the night energetic and lively and stayed on the dance floor all the way through the reception. It was one of the entertaining evenings I had been able to capture this year. Everybody was having a blast that night and it was the perfect ending to an amazing day.

Over the last couple of years I’ve accidentally found myself photographing quite a few Disney Cruise Weddings. They come across quite glamorous (and they truly are) but they’re also just as hard work as my “on-land” Weddings and equally as fun! I’ve gotten to meet some really awesome couples because of the Disney cruises and every Wedding on it has been so completely different from the next one. In early April, we were blessed to join Lauren & Joseph aboard the Disney Dream to capture their Wedding whose Ceremony would be held at Castaway Cay Disney Island. Typically, when a cruise wedding is booked with us, the Ceremony is photographed onboard and then a “day-after” session is photographed on the beach of Castaway the next day but because Lauren and Joe were having their Ceremony at Castaway already they decided to have an engagement session at Disney Boardwalk here in Orlando instead (you may have seen this on the blog previously). ;) Lauren & Joseph’s Wedding day was simply perfect in all areas. We were treated to fantastic weather all day long and although it was very hot it was also crystal clear and gorgeous. Lauren made a stunning bride as expected and her dress appeared as though it had been made just for her. After a short & sweet dockside Ceremony, the newlywed’s enjoyed cake and champagne among close friends and family in Disney’s D Lounge. We continued photographing Bride & Groom portraits around the ship after Lauren & Joe’s first dance and then they were able to enjoy some family time on the beach. This day was amazing throughout and we are so pleased that were chosen to document this amazing event for Lauren and her Joe.

Kraft Azalea || Winter Park, FL

Couple: Stephanie & Francis

Here are just a few of my favorite images from Stephanie & Francis’ Winter Park Engagement session. We started off this gorgeous afternoon at Kraft Azalea Gardens which is a photographic favorite and rightly so. This particular area is being requested for sessions more and more these days and I think it’s great. Because it’s popularity, I always recommend any session here should be photographed on a week day as the weekends are rife with families, photographers, and events that it can be quite difficult to avoid the “photo bombers” and background distractions. Luckily, this sweet couple took my advice and we planned for an April week day to document their stunning engagement session. Stephanie had ironed on “Mr” and “Mrs” transfers to their matching white t-shirts which I think came out really cute. I’m not huge on props unless it ties in with the session well but I definitely don’t mind subtle accessories to help bring some dynamic to session. ;) We ventured around Kraft Azalea which isn’t as big as most people assume but it certainly features the perfect backgrounds for a Springtime photoshoot. :) After an outfit change and a short drive, we arrived on New England Avenue for the second portion of Stephanie & Francis engagement session. By this point, we were treated to some pretty gorgeous lighting and were able to visit all my favorite photo spots along this diversely textured street. These two were a dream to photograph. There were some really sweet moments between the two of them that just photographed so naturally and lovingly and it made the afternoon very enjoyable to capture. It was a great opportunity to get to know the both of them better and to hear all about their Wedding day plans. I am so excited to be documenting Stephanie & Francis’ day. It can’t come any sooner! :)

It’s 7-7-15! There has to be something moderately lucky about those digits, right? I can’t think what of course but it’s what I’m sticking with. ;) It could be that I have a stunning Wedding to gush about today! Here are just a few of my faves from Angel & Joseph’s Wedding day which was held at Hickory Point Recreational Park in Tavares, FL. I have only ever photographed a wedding here one other time and I found it to be a very versatile venue with tons of naturalistic areas to photograph in. This particular day started with Angel getting her hair and make-up done with her bridesmaids and mother. Angel and her little gaggle of girls were the sweetest and their pre-wedding giggles kept the mood light and cheerful throughout. Once Angel was helped into her stunningly floaty tulle bridal gown (whose embellishment she attached herself with matching veil), I ventured over to the ceremony site to start Joe’s family and groomsmen images. It was then time to capture Angel with her bridesmaids and before too long it was time to get her down the aisle to met her Groom. Angel & Joe exchanged vows beneath a large oak tree dangling with Spanish moss surrounded by their nearest and dearest. After some officially married images about the property, Angel & Joe made an entrance into their evening celebrations with all who had attended this wonderful day. Once the evening ended, the happy couple made a grand exit encircled in sparklers. I see so many sparkler exits and I honestly believe it’s the one Wedding must-have that will never go out of style. There’s something truly magical about those sparkles on a stick and Angel & Joe’s exit is by far one of my faves using them! ;)
