A destination beach wedding… just the words invite you to dream up a perfect day. Beautiful skies, stunning water, white sands and two people in love surrounded by those who love and support them the most. Janna & Jason experienced every bit of that on their wedding day at the Sirata Beach Resort. When I arrived there was a lot of laughter that filled the bride’s room as she was getting her final touches done. I watched Janna interact with her wedding party and step-daughter, and I realized that she is truly surrounded by people that love & adore her…and that this is because she truly loves and adores them! That is such a blessing in and of itself. I knew then, without even having met Jason yet, that he would be the same. I was right. Together, they are the most loving parents, they went out of their way to include…no, to share their wedding day with Jason’s kids. After all, this was a special day for all of them. They really could not have had a more beautiful day, it was so perfect. The wedding decor & set up was stunning, Stephanie Voth Events did a beautiful job, […]

Such an incredible day! The weather was beautiful, the skies a stunning shade of blue. The guests chattering, and the wedding party full of laughter. Amanda and Jackson chose the Lion’s club for their special day. I love this venue, the secluded ceremony location nestled on the white sand, between trees creates the perfect intimate beach atmosphere that many other venues just cannot offer. And their ceremony was perfect, music played by friends of the bride & groom played as Amanda walked down the aisle…guided by both her mother and father while Jackson stood at the arbor, and couldn’t help but smile as he watched her. There ceremony was beautiful, meaningful and the perfect moment shared by them and their guests. A moment that they will remember forever. As the reception kicked off, I knew quickly it was going to be a fun night. The mother of the groom and the father of the bride were the first on the dance floor. Soon after the dance floor was packed, and it stayed that way all night long! Take a look at their perfect wedding day!

As I finish up the editing for Joanna & Phil’s wedding, I just wanted to take a second and share this for them & their guests. It was such a beautiful day to remember, and I hope they will forever enjoy and love their images. Photographing weddings is such a joy to me. It’s so personal, and it has so much meaning. When I look at photographs I can hear the laughter, the funny jokes, or the sweet whispers. That’s exactly what happens as I go through Joanna & Phil’s images. I remember the laughter as Joanna was getting her dress on and the nerves & excitement just before the first look, and the relief & love shared in the moments just after. They were surrounded by so many people who love & support their marriage, and because of that I know that they will be looking through their wedding photos in 30 years laughing & smiling as they remember their day!

You know, as time goes by I still do one thing after every single wedding, something that I have done for 7 years. After each wedding, I take a second and think… “What will I always remember about this wedding?” For Amanda & Stephen’s wedding, I’ll remember that because they are both such amazing people, they have surrounded themselves with the love and support of so many people. Life time friendships were on full display throughout their wedding day, and that to me is such a beautiful thing. Marriage is filled with both exciting and happy moments, but also with moments that are less easy, rough days, or bumpy roads. It’s during those times that having such an invaluable support system will prove to be such a blessing. In those times when you turn to your friends and family for support, they will build you back up and they will turn you back towards the one you love so much. This is something to be treasured! Amanda & Stephen’s wedding day was beautiful. The Oxford exchange, a European-inspired venue was the perfect fit for their celebration. The wedding party filled the halls with the sound of laughter as they finished getting ready. Amanda & […]

Jamie & Ryan’s wedding | Mirror Lake Lyceum | St Pete wedding photographer

In some places, January 21st might be a very cold day, there might even be snow. But not in Florida! Jamie & Ryan’s wedding day was beautiful, beautiful skies, fluffy white clouds and even a little breeze…okay, maybe a lot of breeze! But that’s okay, because their wedding was inside of the gorgeous Mirror Lake Lyceum. Overlooking Mirror Lake, you can’t help but to be wow’d from the moment you enter the doors, and begin exploring this stunning building dating back to 1926. The Event Manager walked us through, showing us some of the most well known spots, and I was truly excited each time I began down another hallway, or up another staircase. Never knowing what I would find around the corner. I swear, if your a person who counts their steps and flights of stairs, this venue is totally for you! haha. Anyhow, the Mirror Lake Lyceum was the perfect compliment to Jamie & Ryan’s purple and gold wedding decor. The bride and her bridesmaid’s arrived first, and immediately filled the halls with laughter and excitement. Photographing them was not only easy, it was so much fun. We laughed a lot, and immediately I realized how beautiful these friendships were, some […]

Kelsey & Gary’s DIY Barn wedding | Lange Farm | Tampa wedding photography

The Lange farm has to be one of my favorite venues. A beautiful farm covered with stunning trees. The barn is nestled in the back, blue with white trimming and lights strung over the outdoor reception space. Guests took a short walk down a path way and found the ceremony under a beautiful tree with hanging lanterns. Kelsey and Gary had a beautiful ceremony, together with Kelsey’s adorable son, they had a little sand ceremony just before saying their vows, and before the became husband and wife! At the reception the guests ate the most amazing BBQ food, catered by Hungry Harry’s . If you haven’t had it, you simply have to try! The rest of the night was spent dancing, laughing, and even singing. Everyone had the most amazing time, and there was absolutely no shortage of fun!!!!
