St Augustine Wedding Photographer | Caroline & Rob | Sneak Peek

Just a little goodness from Caroline and Rob’s St Augustine wedding yesterday.  Stay tuned for more soon. . . . .

St Augustine Family Photographer | Hope, Joe & the kids

I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family recently during their visit to St Augustine.  Hope and Joe are actually going to be renewing their wedding vows in 2011 so instead of the typical engagement session that I normally do before the wedding, we decided it would be a great time to do a family session in it’s place.

Let me say, this family has great style.  I expected no less because after my talk with Hope about her design for her vow renewal ceremony, I knew that any idea she had would be stylish in every way.

It was a fun shoot and I had a great time getting to know them and their kids.  I’ll look forward to seeing you all in January!

I love this next shot!  So fun and she has the most fabulous shoes!  

St Augustine Wedding Photographer | Terri & Mike are married!

A couple of weeks ago, I woke up to the most amazing weather and beautiful blue skies.  It was a perfect day for Terri and Mike’s wedding day.  They had a very intimate and heartfelt ceremony at the Cathedral Basilica in St Augustine.  They were surrounded by a group of their closest family and friends.  After the ceremony, Mike and Terri allowed time in their schedule to walk around the historic district to get some great shots surrounded by the beautiful scenery that St Augustine has to offer.  The Flagler Ballroom at the beautiful Casa Monica was the reception site and it was the perfect spot for Terri and Mike to enjoy good food, dancing and spending time with their family and friends who traveled from all over to spend this day with them.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you Terri & Mike (and Oli) for allowing me into your lives and to be with you on your wedding day.

XOXO

Thanks to the awesome Alida Perez, who did Terri’s makeup and Jamie Dougherty, who did her hair.  They are both part of Aura Salon and did an amazing job making the already beautiful Terri, even more beautiful.

The bouquets that 57 Treasury made are gorgeous!  Oli was so cute with his blue neck tie! 
Instead of grooms men, Mike opted to have longtime friends from Manila be his grooms women instead.  I love these delicate boutonniere’s that 57 Treasury put together for the ladies to wear with their super cute suits.  This next shot is dreamy and Terri looked amazing, as she did all day.  I didn’t realize it when I shot it but noticed as I was editing that Mike actually shows up in the reflection of the glass which made me love the image even more.

I absolutely couldn’t resist getting a sneak peek up from Terri and Mike’s beautiful wedding yesterday.  You could not have asked for a more beautiful day for a wedding and to be able to witness two very sweet people commit their lives to one another. . . . . it was truly an honor,

Enjoy your honeymoon!

XOXO

Gainesville Engagement Session | Kate & Mike

On Saturday, I met up with Kate and Mike in Gainesville to do their engagement session.  Since they are both UF grads, we thought it would be great to go back to the place where all the magic happened.   :D

I had already met Kate and her mom earlier this year but this was my first time meeting Mike.  Let me tell you, this guy was a trooper!  They are a great couple and he happily went along with whatever Kate or I suggested and I think the end result was awesome.  We got some great shots and I was happy to shoot in a place that’s a little different than my norm.  Go Gators!

I love engagement shoots because it gives me an opportunity to spend some one on one time with my couples before their big day.  I’m looking forward to their May 2011 wedding and I know there will be no shortage of fun!

XOXO
