Disney Boardwalk || Orlando, Florida

Couple: Kate & Aaron
Location: Disney Boardwalk. Orlando, Florida

Here are some highlights from Kate and Aaron’s engagement session.

At first glance, they seem like such a nice couple, and meeting them proved it to be true. They’re really sweet people, especially to each other. The photographs definitely speak for themselves. We managed to capture plenty of charming shots. Both halves of the shoot were held at various parts of Disney’s Boardwalk at the Walt Disney World Resort. They were all smiles during the entirety of the shoot which made capturing the genuine essence of their relationship a lot easier.

The shoot background was an even combination of pastel patterns and lush greenery. For the first half, the couple kept it simple yet elegant. Aaron looked handsome in a white button-up to match his grey khaki pants. His style point would have to be his black sneakers, which adds a relaxed vibe to his overall look. Meanwhile, Kate looked lovely in an azure dress with white floral patterns. She matched this with a pair of sensible open-toed wedges. 

For the latter half, the couple opted for a mix of comfort and style. They both opted for jeans, and Aaron changed into a mulberry polo top to match. On the other hand, Kate exchanged her heels for a pair of black flats. She wore a butterscotch blouse with floral details, paired with a simple black sweater, perfect for the windy day. Because they were photographed in open spaces, the contrast of their outfits to their immediate surroundings made them the center of each photo.

The couple are getting married on the Disney Cruise, which is really exciting! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to photograph their wedding since I’m already booked on that date. Regardless, congratulations to Kate and Aaron for finding their own happily ever after!

Here are some highlights from Deb and Wally’s beautiful wedding!

Preparations began with a celebratory toast by the ladies to the bride-to-be. Deb looked stellar in her wedding gown – a shapely sweetheart neckline top that transitioned to a stunning mermaid skirt, ending in a mass of ruffled tulle. The bridesmaids wore a gorgeous array of tea rose ensembles, a very flattering color. In accordance to the theme, Wally matched his classic tuxedo with an old rose silk tie.

Leila Mullen acted as a second photographer, and assisted in capturing extra angles, so I think we managed to accomplish Deb’s request of having plenty of pre-ceremony shots. Their first look was absolutely adorable! The couple brought along their dogs – my ultimate weakness! The two precious pooches were just as photogenic as their mom and dad!

While the girls walked the aisle, the gentlemen arrived in innovative fashion via jetboat. The lake was a nice backdrop to a beautiful ceremony. The sun was out, but it was a rather windy day, making it perfect for an outdoor wedding. The reception area had a rustic aesthetic to it, especially emphasized by the fairy lights overhead.

When the night came to an end, the guests brought out the glow sticks to illuminate the couple’s exit. The thing with glow sticks, however, is that the area has to be almost pitch black in order for the camera to pick up movement. Too much light source can alter the end result completely. I’ve witnessed a handful of creative exit strategies, and this is definitely one of them. So, on that note, here are a few I can suggest for your own wedding!

  1. Sparklers. Lengthy ones are best since they burn the longest. For shorter ones, have the guests take two, only lighting the second one just as the first one starts to burn out.
  2. Bubbles. They look amazing at night if matched with some ambient lighting. Bubble guns or tubes with really long wands work the better than the ones in tiny containers.
  3. Petals. Common, yet never fail to add a flair of elegance to an exit.
  4. Streamers. Another common strategy, but streamer cannons are always fun!   
  5. Metallic confetti. I’m still waiting for someone to use this. They’re perfect for both day and night!

Here’s to another unicorn wedding!

As expected from two of the most free-spirited people I’ve ever met. The outdoor affair made me want to photograph weddings like these every single day of my life. The overall venue looked amazing, which made it easy for the event to elicit a relaxed vibe all throughout.  It was all absolutely effortlessly beautiful. To put it simply: everything was on point.

Amanda and Ash are two adventurous travelers, even owning a camper van that they affectionately refer to as their “baby.” Upon learning about these little details, it came as no surprise to find out that these two met while traveling the world, especially since Ash actually came all the way from England. The two lovers are currently on their honeymoon – a 6-month roadtrip around the United States!

Amanda has the most gorgeous smile, and she easily showed it off the moment preparations began. Her ensemble was a unique one, showing off her inner flower child – a flowy bohemian dress with intricate floral details around the shoulders and hem, and a fanback skirt trailing beautifully behind her as she walked the aisle. She chose stylish comfort, and wore beige, fringed sandals instead of traditional heels. Her delicate curls were topped off with a pretty flower crown. Ash kept it simple yet still managed to look handsome in a mossy green vest and old rose tie.

No words can describe how stunning the reception area was – all flowers and colorful knickknacks. From food to decorations, it was all creatively rustic with an entirely elegant charm. There was never a dull moment, either. From beginning to end, everyone was in high spirits. Shot glasses were ready the moment the ceremony ended and reception began. Families and guests from both sides were all fun and friendly people. There was no hint of negative energy at all! I would definitely jump at the chance to relive and capture this wedding all over again.

This is definitely one for the books!

Langford Park & Orlando City || Downtown Orlando, Florida

Couple: Ailyn & Sabir
Location: Langford Park & Downtown Orlando, Florida

Let me start off by saying these two are a couple of besties!

Ailyn and I know each other from high school, but never really hung out until around 5 to 6 years ago. After reuniting, she gradually became one of my closest and dearest friends. We’ve done so many things together – attended parties, gossiped, talked about boys, and even vacationed in Las Vegas with all our girlfriends! I’ve just had so many wonderful memories with her that I’m absolutely ecstatic, not to mention flattered, that I would be photographing she and Sabir’s engagement session.

The first half of their shoot, however casual, had an obvious air of romance. The cute picnic session with champagne was such an adorable and rather silly touch to an otherwise emotional and intimate photoshoot. Ailyn, a complete sweetheart, brought her fiancé a box of memories. After she transitioned from white to a darker floral ensemble, and Sabir changed from a carnation pink button-up to light blue, they walked the streets of Downtown Florida looking very much like themselves – a couple truly in love!

A few years after we reunited, Ailyn met Sabir at a club called Vyce in downtown Orlando – and the rest was history. They’ve been inseparable ever since. Sabir is a complete jokester and a barrel of banter, bringing laughter everywhere he goes! He’s one of the few people that can handle my rather sarcastic sense of humor. Meanwhile, out of all our girlfriends, everyone will agree that Ailyn has the biggest heart of gold. Sabir has a daughter from a previous relationship who Ailyn easily welcomed into her life and treated like her own, making Sabir and her daughter closer than ever. A true gift, this speaks volumes about the type of woman Ailyn is.

Sabir proposed to her during a trip to Washington DC, right in front of the colossal figure of Abraham Lincoln, with an amethyst ring – her favorite color and an absolute showstopper! Fortunately, he managed to get someone to film the emotional moment. I am so happy they found each other, and elated to know that they will be expecting a baby girl in March! Hopefully the wedding will not be too long after that.

Congratulations to the beautiful and happy couple!

I’ve had the utmost pleasure of photographing Vanessa and Vijay’s beautiful engagement shoot months prior to their special day, so I am just as happy to present the highlights of their wedding!

If Vanessa didn’t already look gorgeous during the engagement session, she looked absolutely ethereal during the wedding! She showed off just the right amount of curves in a sweetheart neckline embellished with beads and jewels, transitioning downward to subtle ruffles around the waist area, ending in a trumpet skirt. The entirety of her look was modest, accessorized only with a simple necklace and topped off with a classic veil. She kept to a traditional white, while her bridesmaids wore flattering mint green ensembles. Meanwhile, Vijay stood out among the sea of black tuxes worn by his groomsmen, looking handsome as he matched his lovely wife by wearing a classy white tuxedo with black accents and bowtie.

Preparations went smoothly, which goes to show the importance of time management when it comes to special occasions – especially weddings. Every second is important, so make sure you know that day’s schedule like the back of your hand. If there’s some idle moments before the ceremony or reception, make good use of it. It’s especially important to keep track of time if you plan on taking family portraits and choose to hold a first look session before the ceremony, much like Vanessa and Vijay did.

The couple proved that simplicity is key throughout the entirety of the event. They dined in a thematic minty and golden fashion, with hints of tea rose as an accent color. The whole venue looked wonderfully elegant. While the ceremony was a rather intimate and emotional one, that didn’t stop the guests from partying to their heart’s content once the dance floor was finally open.

Vanessa and Vijay are absolute sweethearts! Despite his rather aloof façade, Vijay is really fun and has great sense of humor. It matches well with Vanessa’s warm, down-to-earth personality. Vanessa had always hoped to marry a man like Vijay, but she ended up with so much more than she initially asked for. These two definitely deserve each other!

Have you ever wondered what a true Orlando wedding looked like?

Melissa and Derek are two proud residents of Connecticut who decided to spice up their special day by sprinkling bits and hints of Orlando all throughout the event. They kept up the theme by presenting postcards with little facts and notes about Orlando written on the back – a very cute idea! They also served delicious shrimp cocktails to the guests. Consider me thoroughly impressed, but I’m getting way ahead of myself.

Let’s start with preparations!

Because the guest list was a small one, preparations were a breeze. The gentlemen had cute socks with iconic characters on beneath their dapper flint-shaded ensembles, almost like a small surprise under their slacks – a subtle nod toward creative freedom for their outfits. Derek looked dapper in his classic black tuxedo, his boutonnière a lovely pale pink bloom. Melissa looked stunning in her A-line wedding gown embellished with lacy details, with a fanback that trailed beautifully behind her along the aisle.

Melissa is a self-proclaimed neurotic. Despite prior warning, I was still able to capture some loving and calm moments between her and her husband-to-be, especially when they saw each other for the first time. Their first look ended up being a sweet and tender moment, and Melissa was all bright smiles all throughout.

The ceremony was held outside, and proved to be rather solemn and intimate. Still, it’s easy to feel the love, not only from the couple, but from guests watching the special event unfold before them as well. Reception was festive, emotional, and full of warm embraces. While it started out with touching speeches and a peaceful toast, everyone was pumped up and ready to celebrate once the dance floor was open. The men even lifted their pants up to their knees to show off their matching socks! Such an ingenious wedding with a lively bunch of people!

Adding a little sass to class, Jessica and Josh know just how to spice up their wedding!

The couple wrote letters to each other which they read prior to preparations which they read during preparations. They decided to keep the wedding simple and sweet by keeping a consistent theme of tea rose and white. Josh and his groomsmen looked handsome in their charcoal-shaded tuxedo and white boutonnière, with their baby pink necktie as the main point. The bridesmaids were in flattering rose gold dresses, while Jessica kept it traditional with a white gown and veil. She looked absolutely gorgeous in a sweetheart neckline, accentuated with intricate floral details in lace, the skirt a slight mermaid touch, and a fanback delicately trailing behind her as she walked down the aisle.

I actually photographed Jessica’s maid-of honor’s wedding a few months prior, so it was fantastic to see some familiar faces again. I must say, however, that I absolutely adore this couple! Jessica is the type of girl you’d want in your own circle of friends. She’s such a gorgeous girl, and was all bright smiles all throughout their special day. Josh, on the other hand, is a total jokester with a great sense of humor. Together, they are one of the sweetest and most fun-loving people I’ve met. Once reception began, the couple proved that they aren’t afraid to play around and get a little silly.

There’s typically a bit of downtime during receptions. Everyone usually needs time to recuperate after the heavy meal, and there are usually a few idle moments after guests sat through toasts. Not for this wedding! Drinks were readily in hand once guests stepped into the reception area. There were also a few props available to be used, including a pair of lightsabers! Jessica and Josh’s entire guest list were on the dance floor once they were seated, and were ready to celebrate all night long. Everyone knew exactly how to party!

Jessica and Josh are definitely a match made in heaven!

Park Avenue || Winter Park, Florida

Couple: Vidi & Kyle
Location: Park Avenue, Winter Park, Florida

Here are some highlights from Vidi and Kyle’s engagement session, which include some of my favorite shots of Winter Park!

The couple chose to go for the clean and casual look for the first half of the shoot. Kyle kept it cool in a plain white tee, with camel-colored khakis as the main fashion point. Meanwhile, Vidi took to wearing a baby blue denim button-up to match her white pants. For this leisurely, romantic stroll, the couple opted for comfort with matching white sneakers. Their faded ensembles made them stand out among the backdrop of greens and reds while en route.

For the latter half, the couple decided to add a hint of class to their lively shoot. Kyle maintained a simple and relaxed vibe with his plain white button-up and charcoal-shaded slacks. Vidi changed into a gorgeous pine-colored dress with emerald and fuchsia details to match the florals in full bloom. Her tulip skirt flowed easily with each of her movement.

No surprise here, but Vidi’s engagement ring is a showstopper! A princess cut with multiple, smaller gems surrounding the diamond and running across the band. Absolutely stunning!

Vidi and my younger brother actually went to same high school. She and I also have quite a few mutual friends, but we’ve never formally met before their engagement session. Vidi and Kyle are two of the sweetest people I’ve met. They were very playful and kept each other laughing all throughout the shoot. They are very trusting, too, and allowed me to shoot with a lot of creative freedom.

Winter Park gets a little challenging to photograph when you frequently hold sessions there. There’s only so many ways you can capture photos in a single location. Regardless, I decided to look at Winter Park in a different light. I took this opportunity as a challenge, and tried to find a variety of new areas we can take photos at. This time, I took some back roads, and went a different direction than usual. In the end, I captured images that became some of my favorite ones I’ve ever taken in Winter Park, and Vidi and Kyle were the perfect models to try this experience on!

Estate on The Halifax || Port Orange, Florida

Bride & Groom: Kristen & Eric
Ceremony/Reception LocationEstate on The Halifax
Videography: Bright Frame Films
Make-Up: Studio Bride
Coordinator: Coastal Coordinating
Florist: Parker Events
DJ: The DJ Man 
Cake: Publix
Dress: Pronovias at One Fine Day Bridal
Bridesmaids: David’s Bridal

Let’s look back on the highlights of Kristen and Eric’s lavish wedding.

Before anything, the gentlemen took some creative and silly outdoor shots in green and yellow basketball jerseys. Afterward, they headed inside the gorgeous, newly refurbished train carriage where they prepped up for the wedding. The ladies, on the other hand, also prepared on-site, in the lovely vintage home. Husband-to-be Eric and his groomsmen immediately transitioned from sporty to dashing in their classic black tuxedos, with matching black bowtie and white boutonnière. The bridesmaids exchanged their bright, floral robes for lovely mulberry gowns with lacy upper details. Meanwhile, Kristen’s ensemble was very Breakfast at Tiffany’s – an elegant sleeveless sheath with a mermaid skirt, and her hair tied into a classic low bun.

The event was held in The Estate on the Halifax – a simple but charming place. Their wedding coordinators were Coastal Coordinating, a full-service company in Florida where Kristen used to work for. The coordinating ladies were very sweet, as was their videographer, Asha. Reception looked absolutely regal with its rich purple and gold theme, yet remained sweet with an extensive candy buffet. The floral details added a homey vibe to a very posh wedding.

Here, I’d like to take this time to share some tips and words of encouragement. 🙂

Remember, you can always trust your photographer! As much as possible, we like to select photo spots with the best lighting. As you can see from examples I’ve published, I don’t solely capture photos inside the venues. If you’re interested in holding an outdoor wedding, or prefer shoots with natural lighting, it’s best to consider a dress that doesn’t stain easily as well. More often than not, a few outdoor shots add more depth and creativity to the final outcome. Some items with intricate elements are best captured under natural lighting and rustic backgrounds such as wedding dresses, shoes, and rings. This helps add more attention to detail.

We only want to show the best and most memorable photos of your special day! 🙂

Vinoy Park & The Don CeSar || St. Pete Beach, FL

Bride & Groom: Lane & Garrett
Location:
 St. Pete Beach, FL

Here are some of the highlights of Lane and Garrett’s gorgeous engagement session.

From an urban aesthetic to an idyllic setting, there’s a huge contrast between their chosen locations. Here’s a little note on the happy couple. I met Lane and Garrett through Lane’s sister, Lora, who helped coordinate Emily and Hoyt’s wedding. Lane and Garrett are very nice people, and I think both locations suit the couple’s combined personality rather well.

They kept the first half of the shoot simple and casual, truly portraying the modern city lifestyle. Garrett looked charming in a simple teal polo shirt to match off-white khakis, while Lane is ever-gorgeous in an Aztec-print cobalt-orange mini-dress. The secluded areas at Vinoy Park added an intimate effect to the shoot, bringing the couple to their own little world. For the latter half, Lane changed into a plain white dress, which is a nice touch to the serene atmosphere of the seaside. Of course, the shore always adds a magical vibe to any engagement session – or any photoshoot, for that matter.

On that note, I’d like to take this opportunity to give you, guys, some tips for choosing locations for your own engagement sessions.

  1. Time management is key!
  2. The session has to fit into 2 hours. Since a location change is encouraged halfway through, it’s best to keep the shoot for each venue around an hour tops.
  3. The two locations must be no more than 10 to 15 minutes away from each other. It’s to ensure that there’s no rushing, and there will be adequate amount of time for photographs in both locations.
  4. Take note of the sun. If natural light is what you’re after, it’s better to start earlier in the day. Meanwhile, if you’re vying for that romantic glow, make sure you get to your location prior to the sunset time. Remember, sunsets are tricky. It’s best to be prepared if you want the perfect shots.

I hope these quick tips help in the first step to your picture-perfect life together!
