It’s one more sleep until 4th July but until then, I have some highlights images to share from Meghan & Rory’s Omni Resort Wedding Day which was also “Pi Day”. Now, I thought we were going to eat pie all day but that was not Pi day is intended for apparently. Shame really. ;) Anyway, I had been SO excited to document this day for these two. We had spent quite a bit of time together throughout the lead up to the big day and I just knew it was going to be an amazing day to be able to document for Meghan & Rory. The day started off with me photographing the girl’s getting ready process where everyone was getting their hair and makeup done in Omni’s bridal area. We always start with the Bride’s detail images on a wedding day which mostly includes jewelry, perfume, rings, invitation suite, sentimental items Bride will have with her, and obviously the dress! I always encourage Brides to choose a decent hanger for their dress as they photograph so much nicer than those clanky plastic ones. Later on, the lovely Cat Lemus arrived to second shoot and capture Rory with his groomsmen getting ready. Meghan and Rory had opted for a First Look for their wedding day which meant they were able to take all their pictures pre-ceremony and then they could head straight to their reception after that walk back down the aisle as husband and wife….well after a few “officially married” images of course. ;) The reception evening was one of the funnest, most energetic nights I had been able to photograph in a while. The day was just perfect overall. I have a huge fondness towards this gorgeous day and the exquisite couple it was celebrating. :)

Grand Floridian Resort || Orlando, FL

Couple: Dakota & Cody

If there’s anything I love more than a Monday, it’s got to be the first week of a new month. It’s a little weird and I know it but there’s just something about the possibility of starting off a new month right and positively. Speaking of starting a new month off on the right foot, below are some of my favorite images from Dakota & Cody’s Grand Floridian engagement session which we photographed early March. It had been a couple of centuries since I had been to this Disney resort and I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I was almost expecting it to be too pretty but it honestly had just the right amount of “pretty” and more than enough gorgeous surrounding areas to photograph within. This location certainly did not disappoint at all. We were also having some freakish sort of weather in early March with some days being quite bright and comfortable with chilly early evenings to then being drizzly and cold all day with no apparent warning. This particular afternoon did start off rather misty and cold at the beginning of the session so it gave us an opportunity to venture around the inside of the resort and form a plan of action for Dakota and Cody’s close-ups later. :) Once we felt the light rain had died a little, we ventured outside and made our way over to the dock area. It was super windy and cold but Dakota & Cody were absolute troopers about the lackluster weather and kept each other snuggly and warm throughout the shoot which photographed really quite sweetly. Luckily, it did warm up as the afternoon progressed and we were able to fit in two more outfit changes during this lovely session. The way these two love each is very cute and honestly, their November wedding day cannot get here soon enough. I’m very excited to be capturing it all for them! It’s going to be amaze! :)

Lue Gardens || Winter Park, FL

Couple: Sarah & Jacob

Here are just a handful of highlight images from Sarah & Jacob’s Engagement session. :) I initially met with this lovely couple near the end of last year to hear all about their October Wedding day and to get to know them both a little better. We discussed ideas and locations for their engagement session over the coming months and eventually settled upon Lue Gardens in Winter Park. Lue Gardens is stunning! To be able to do a photo session there, I’m pretty sure you could cover their entire grounds in about 3-4 hours. There’s just so many different areas in this one vicinity that I literally wanted to photograph Sarah & Jacob around all of them. The unfortunate side to Lue Gardens is that it closes SO early…well too early for a photographer that wants to capture a few images among a little bit of dusk. ;) We photographed this session mid-Februaury and I remember the gardens closing around 4pm so we decided to pick a second location nearby. Park Avenue in Winter Park was suggested as it quite often is and rightfully so, but I quickly remembered driving along a road very near to the heart of Winter Park that I knew would be perfect for the second portion of Sarah & Jacob’s session. There’s a ton of different textures and more of a city feel along New England so this gave their images a bit of dynamic against the pretty garden feel which I liked a lot. It also must be said that these two are just effortless in the way that they love one another. The feelings they have towards each other came across so naturally and sweetly that they both were an ease and pure joy to capture. I seriously cannot wait to photograph their Wedding Day later this year. I just know it’s going to be an absolutely gorgeous one!

Kraft Azalea Park || Winter Park, FL

Couple: Stacy & Nelson

So, I’m around about twelve blogs away from being completely up-to-date! That finish line is SO close I can see it but not quite touch it yet! In the mean time, feast your eyes upon Stacy and Nelson’s Kraft Azalea engagement session. We photographed this sweet afternoon in early February and I must say it is one of my favorite times of year in Florida for sure. I encourage all couples to bring a second outfit during their engagement session starting off with something relatively casual and then switching to something a little more dressy. Stacy and Nelson did not disappoint with their outfit choices as expected. They chose outfits that weren’t matchy-matchy but were still complimentary to one another while still feeling comfortable. :) On another note, sessions were definitely starting about 2-3 hours earlier than when I start them in the Summer all due to the changing sunset times. Speaking of sunset times, this is another topic that is being mentioned and included in the new Welcome packages which are slowly but surely coming together. :) What is spoken about is deciding factors for your Ceremony start times. If you plan to exchange vows with your intended outside, no matter where your wedding is going to be held, the sunset time should always be taken into account. For example, we all want that romantic sunset Ceremony but if you opt out of a First Look and plan to take all formal images (bridal party, family, and bride & groom) after and you don’t want pitch black images then a Ceremony time should be selected about 1.5-2.5 hours before the sun is due to set. This also depends on how long you expect your Ceremony to last and how many formal images you require post Ceremony. These crucial timing decisions allow more room for your photographer to get those creative shots without being occupied with the loss of natural light and thus allowing for the Bride & Groom to have beautiful well-lit images! :)

Today’s blog features some of my favorite captures from Samantha and Pete’s big beautiful Greek Wedding. This was my very first Greek Wedding and I knew not what to expect from this stunning January day in Clearwater, FL. The day started off with Samantha getting her hair and make-up prettified surrounded by her TEN bridesmaids, three flower girls  and family. I don’t think their bridal party was the largest I’ve had but it was definitely up there. :) All that estrogen in one room at the beginning of the day is such an energy lifter and sets a high-spirited, positive tone for the entire event. Samantha and Pete’s day was certainly no different. During her getting ready process, Samantha had gifted her girls gold jewelry to wear on throughout the day with the protection of an evil eye charmed bracelet. So Pretty! Photographs of Pete and his Groomsmen were then taken around the lovely grounds of Kapok Special Events which was another venue first for me. Samantha had even had a teenage birthday there years ago, as well as a High School prom. So this venue certainly contained a bit of childhood nostalgia for her. Samantha and Pete then exchanged vows at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church which is really quite beautiful inside. The newly weds then took a tram ride to their Wedding Reception and partied the night away among friends and family. And my goodness, was it a party?! I had my wonderful “beastie”, Jamie help out with extra angles on this amazing day and I think we both agree that this Wedding was yet another great start to the New Year. Crazy amounts of fun all around! :)

Angel & Joe || Winter Garden, FL

This sweet engagement session was my very last for 2015 and I may even be correct in saying that we captured it just a couple of days before Christmas. We photographed the entire session for miss Angel and Joseph all around Historic Winter Garden. As I’ve mentioned many times before, this location is one of my faves as it’s so quaint and lovely and also features the added bonus in that it’s just a few short minutes from where I live. :) Angel and Joseph married earlier this year at Hickory Point in Taveres, FL. I cannot wait to blog all about their stunning Wedding day. These two are effortlessly lovely towards one another and it was just the cutest thing to be able to document on this December afternoon. We were graciously blessed with no crowds on this day which made the session that much more enjoyable although, the personalities on these two would’ve made this afternoon a joy to photograph either way. :) Once this gorgeous session ended I was able to look back over the last year happy and grateful to have worked with such amazing couples. Enough cannot be said for how rewarding it has been to tell the love stories of all these fantastic people and what an immense blessing it is to share in their first day as a married couple. Almost half through this year and it’s all gone by so very quickly already. It’s a great reminder to look back when needed to remember where your going and far far you’ve come. I absolutely cannot wait to share all the things that have been going on over the last six months. We’re catching up on blogging and it feels so great to be able to share these wonderful memories for such outstanding couples. Love them all! <3 ANGELAJOE_005 ANGELAJOE_007 ANGELAJOE_011 ANGELAJOE_017 ANGELAJOE_020 ANGELAJOE_026 ANGELAJOE_032 ANGELAJOE_034 ANGELAJOE_039 ANGELAJOE_041 ANGELAJOE_053 ANGELAJOE_055 ANGELAJOE_059 ANGELAJOE_066 ANGELAJOE_070 ANGELAJOE_083 ANGELAJOE_088 ANGELAJOE_098 ANGELAJOE_100 ANGELAJOE_094 ANGELAJOE_105 ANGELAJOE_107 ANGELAJOE_109 ANGELAJOE_121 ANGELAJOE_125 ANGELAJOE_124 ANGELAJOE_131 ANGELAJOE_139 ANGELAJOE_156 ANGELAJOE_158 sign

Meghan & Rory & Nellie || Baldwin Park, FL

Are dogs better than people? I may or may not be apart of that large majority that may answer with a very strong yes to this common notion. Perhaps dogs may not be better than ALL people but they’re definitely better than a great number of people. My belief is that no one can really teach you true unconditional love like a dog can and I’m definitely one of those people that has trouble trusting anyone who isn’t a dog lover themselves. :P Now can you bring your dog to your engagement session? ABSOLUTELY! In fact, I encourage it almost always. :) Meghan and Rory had previously shot their engagement session earlier in the year but then they adopted sweet lil Nellie during their Wedding planning and it was only right that we photograph a mini session with their new four-legged addition. In fact, I’m pretty sure I mentioned to Meghan & Rory a few times that they should even have her take the role of ring-bearer for their March Wedding Day! However, as hopelessly cute as she is it was decided she definitely wouldn’t make down the aisle without a bit of doggy demolition. Instead, they thought of the next best thing which was to have a puppy love treat table during their reception where they would display pictures from this session so that Nellie would be included her into their day. This was probably the cutest idea I’ve ever seen for incorporating  furry family members into your wedding day and I can’t wait to share the images of how it turned out. I will of course blog all about their gorgeous wedding in the coming weeks. Till then, here are just a few of my faves from their sweet session which we photographed in the afternoon around the lovely Baldwin Park. :)

I’ve been working on welcome packaging the last few weeks and it’s been fun and interesting piecing together tips, tricks, and things to be aware of if your a Bride planning your Wedding. One of the items discussed is the importance of selecting the correct standing spots for your Ceremony. There’s so many beautiful ceremony venues in Orlando and as photographers we always want to be able to photograph our couples in the best possible lighting situations. During Ceremonies we don’t typically having the luxury of selecting the best places for the Bride and Groom to stand during their nuptials. Because of this, we strongly recommend walk-throughs about a week or two before the wedding day. Pick a meeting time that is around the time of you ceremony so that you have a good idea of what the sun positioning is going to be like. Stand in the exact area you will be standing throughout your ceremony and take note of where light is hitting each of you. If one of you is in shade and the other is in sunlight then it would be beneficial to think about alternate standing spots because the last thing you want in your Ceremony images is one of you in harsh sunlight squinting and the other in mostly shade. I mean, we certainly have a ton of photoshop tips and tricks to fix most inperfections but there’s not a tool in this entire world that will alter you or you other half’s face from looking like they were squinting though-out their vows. ;) Below is a gorgeous couple whose stunning wedding was the perfect example of what happens when you pick the best location to say those all important vows surrounded by fabulous natural light and of course beloved friends and family. :)
