Tony + Kristina hold Leu Gardens in their hearts. It’s where Tony asked Kristina to be his wife. <3 It was so neat when they showed us the exact spot… sadly, the rose bushes were pruned back and we elected to take advantage of the current blooms. They walked all over with us and were great sports with the saturated grounds. We were so lucky to get sunshine as it had rained for a week straight leading up to the shoot! We will take it as a sign that this beautiful couple has sunny days ahead! We cannot wait for the big day! Cheers!
This couple loves downtown St. Pete and being on the water. So much so, they are planning a wedding on the Yacht Starship! So we met for a leisurely walk around downtown St. Pete. They were so natural in front of the camera and kept each other laughing. Christian led this session and made great use of the natural light. We are all so excited for the big day! Cheers Costes + Kristen!
Marcus + Carly were married on a windy day at the Safety Harbor Resort & Spa. They had a Great Gatsby themed evening. I loved the elegance of the touches of gold and the feathers! This couple was relaxed and embraced the day. Even a ceremony site change couldn’t dull their excitement! It was a fabulous evening with incredible entrances, speeches and glow stick dancing! Her sister and sister’s fiance even caught the bouquet and garter! And guess what, we just learned we will be photographing their wedding too! 🙂 It was an evening to remember with a fantastic group of friends and family! Cheers! <3
Phil + Jennifer are big Disney fans… and so are we! We instantly had so much to talk about. When discussing a location for their engagement session, it was only fitting we go to Disney! They love visiting the Disney Boardwalk, so we basically tagged along on their date. <3 We had fun exploring and getting to know each other. Turns out they are honeymooning at Disney World too! I couldn’t help gushing about our amazing honeymoon there! I am so excited for all the Disney touches in their wedding and all he magic their marriage will hold. Cheers!
Mario + Maggie wanted a Tampa themed engagement shoot. Many friends and family will be traveling for their wedding at the University of Tampa, so we wanted to include a few there. This couple loves having fun and laughing together. All we had to do was watch them interact. We talked about Tampa events and cooking healthy. We could have talked for hours. We cannot wait for the big day! Cheers!
Steven + Becky were married at the Pelican Preserve Golf Club in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. A rose was placed in the first chair on the bride’s side in honor of the bride’s mother. There was laughter and tears during the ceremony. The love between these two was so moving and instantly put a smile on everyone’s face. The reception had country touches like a truck mud bogging on the groom’s cake. We are so excited to see where your love takes you. Cheers!
Travis + Becca traveled from Los Angeles to be married in Travis’s home town. They had a beautifully emotional first look early in the day and were married at the First United Methodist Church of Sebring. There were pops of soft pink in the bridesmaids dresses and flowers. A family member’s old car ,complete with string of cans, picked the newlyweds up from the church. It was wonderful to see how many friends of the bride and groom traveled from all over the country to celebrate the wedding! Congratulations Travis + Becca!
It will always be easy for me to remember this beautiful couple. They were married on my birthday! The day was so high spirited. We were privileged to witness a moving feet washing ceremony and private prayer before the ceremony. The ceremony was officiated by the groom’s father who was heartfelt and funny in his delivery. The bride wore a delicate, lace dress with a beautiful veil. The dress straps were thin and completely beaded… swoon. This couple was so excited to start their lives together as husband and wife. Best wishes. Cheers Jake + Madeline!
Cody + Cindy were married on private family property on a beautiful, sunny New Year’s Day! It was so lovely kicking off the new year with such an amazing couple. The sign-in table had a custom built bench on it for guests to sign. I loved this idea! Now they will use the bench in their future home. The bride and bridesmaids took photos at an old church down the road while the guys goofed off in true country fashion. They had a biscuit bar with toppings like honey, country gravy and more! YUM! Cheers!
