Marie Selby Botanical Gardens Wedding

Amanda & Max traveled all the way from Germany for their incredible wedding. Their intimate Jewish ceremony  performed by Rabbi Barbara was so beautiful, being in the presence of traditions that have been performed for thousands of years is a sacred and lovely thing to watch.  It was absolutely pouring all morning and just as their ceremony ended the rain stopped and the sun came shining out as if to celebrate with them. We explored the gardens together for their portraits and watched a beautiful sunset across the water together. I’m so thrilled that I got to capture their lovely day, here are a few of my favorites!

palmetto riverside bed and breakfast wedding

I’m absolutely thrilled and honored to share this wedding of two of my dear friends today. Ben and Brianna are absolutely perfect for each other and their day couldn’t have been any more beautiful. I’ve been friends with Ben since college and when he met Brianna we knew instantly she was a keeper.  They are two of the most energetic, fun and up for anything people I’ve ever known and they bring out the best in each other when they are together.

We planned the day out so that I could photograph until the reception and then my second shooter would take over so I could fully celebrate with them. It was such a fun night of dancing and I enjoyed every second of being a wedding guest. A huge thanks to my friend Justin for taking over later in the evening, I’ve had tears in my eyes laughing looking through all of the wonderful dancing photos and am so excited that I actually got to be a part of them for once (being a guest at a wedding is a very rare occurrence for me!)

Congratulations to my dear friends, I’m so thrilled that you are finally Mr. & Mrs. and we look forward to celebrating your life as newlyweds together this year.

    What a beautiful wedding!!! for a beautiful couple!! :-*ReplyCancel

lakeland engagement session

I adore photographing long red hair, I don’t know what it is but it just looks so lovely on film. I also have a soft spot for couples who are head over heels in love with each other and fun vintage items so this session was absolute perfection for me. McKara and Brandon are just so wonderful together. I couldn’t have had more fun spending an afternoon capturing their sweet love. I’m honored that I will get to capture their super creative wedding (wait until you see what they’ve got planned!) and that we will share an anniversary together. Here are a few of my favorites from their session:

sunken gardens portrait session

I had the pleasure of recently photographing another wonderful photography team Katie & John from Catherine Ann Photography. They are South Carolina bound to shoot specialty weddings for historic gardens and sites and I can’t wait to see what lovely pictures they get in such a charming area. We spent the afternoon at Sunken Gardens to capture some portraits before they go, aren’t they so sweet?
