David + Aimee was so much fun on their engagement session, so we knew the wedding day was going to be no different. We had the run of the whole ship on a beautiful sunny day. The couple did not want to see each other before the ceremony, instead they opted for a quick ‘hello’ on either side of the bride’s room door. I’m so glad they kept anticipation because David’s face when he saw her walk down the aisle… wow! The yacht set sail right after the ceremony and their guests were treated to amazing views of Tampa Bay and Davis Island. We love the ocean and ship weddings. This really was a treat to photograph. Cheers to baseball, sparkly heels and love of the ocean! <3 Best wishes DJ + Aimee.
This couple had to move up their date due to the groom’s military schedule. Luckily, we were available! The couple fell in love with the winding branches of this park and knew this was the perfect location. The sun drenched leaves were beautiful. It was a place you wanted to just sit down and take in. I loved the yellow and rustic touches and the caps! <3 This was another wedding was led by our talented Christian! He has an eye for sunlight and a hankering for adventure. Cheers Glen + Kelly!
This couple embraced the idea of an intimate beach wedding. Just close friends and family and vows. It was spectacular. No stress, just excitement. The water really popped and so did the coral accents. The bride and groom wrote their own vows promising to always love, respect and value each other. The wedding planner brought champagne (my favorite) to the beach for a beautiful toast after the family photos. <3 Cheers newlyweds!
This water-front wedding was warm and welcoming. We felt like family immediately. It began when Evelyn’s mother showed me the beautiful lace shirt she made to layer over the wedding dress. It was incredibly detailed and stunning. It continued until the end of the night when the groom’s parents tried to teach my husband and I to Rumba. We couldn’t stop watching all the amazing dancers. But there is not enough time in the world to teach me to dance like them. ha. 🙂 This couple was so sweet. They embraced our crazy ideas to do photos on the dock. We really enjoyed our time getting to know their love story. Cheers to forever!
Hats off to this amazing couple. They were so calm on the wedding day! Busting jokes, smiling and saying, ‘I can’t wait to be married!’ They were referred to us from another happy couple whose wedding we photographed way back in 2011. How awesome! <3 The bridal party told us hilarious one-liners, stories about how this couple strengthens each other and even belted out songs during the reception. I’m still not sure who gave them a microphone. ha. The chemistry was incredible and made for wonderful photos. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, cold beer and beach vacations. Cheers!
These two love birds were referred to us by an old high school friend of mine. What a compliment! <3 They were a little nervous for our session. We channeled that excited energy into stories about how they met and first dates. The smiles and laughter just flowed naturally. Josh is a police officer and Megan wanted to incorporate that into a save-the-date photo. This was my favorite part! Loved the officer’s wife badge! We loved the natural light and surroundings of Philippe Park and the genuine love these two brought. We cannot wait for the big day! Cheers!
Jovan + Erica traveled from New York for their beach wedding. They were blessed with a sunny, clear day on which to share their vows. The wedding was full of beautiful do-it-yourself touches and sweet moments. They enjoyed a few magical moments on the beach with their children. I cannot forget how gracious and wonderful this couple was and what amazing parents they were. Maybe on our next trip to NYC we can get together for coffee! Cheers.
Ted and Taryn fell in love in the sky. He is a pilot and she worked as an airline attendant. We love how they incorporated their love of travel and flying into the decor. They were sweet, smart and funny! We loved the emotional ceremony and amazing swing dancing! We wish you a lifetime of love, cake & coffee! 🙂 Cheers love birds!
This couple could not stop smiling! They were all teeth! It was such a joy to see how excited and happy they were! This was a beautiful destination wedding. The lucky couple has another reception back home planned in a few weeks! Talk about a great month! We were treated to a beautiful, hazy sunset. May the beach always be a magical place for you both! <3 Cheers Tyler + Tiffany!
We met Ryan and Katelyn at the University of Tampa campus for their engagement session. They wanted a shoot with a vintage flair. We picked the perfect location for it! The brick and historic architecture helped this shoot come to life. We loved this couple’s humor and style. They kept making us laugh. We cannot wait for the big day! We are sure they will be laughing through life together, forever. <3 Cheers!
