I’ve been thinking off and on for the last few weeks about what to say about Kerrie and Daniel. Sure, I can say all the usual stuff about how they got married on one of the most beautiful days in November and what a beautiful ceremony and rockin’ reception they had, both of which are totally true. However, as much fun as the day was, those aren’t the things that come to my mind first when I think about their wedding day.
Kerrie and Daniel are my ideal clients. If eHarmony matched engaged couples to wedding photographers, we’d be a perfect match. Not only are they completely gorgeous, they are two of the nicest people I have ever met. Anyone who spends just a little time around them can quickly see how much they adore each other. I am extremely blessed to have the opportunity to work with couples on one of the most important days of their lives together. When I’m able to work with people like Kerrie and Daniel, it’s an even bigger blessing.
I think one of the reasons we worked out so well is because they trust me. They really, really trust me and even though they’ve never come out and said so, I could feel it when I worked with them. It really warms my heart to step back, look through my camera and see these magical moments happening right in front of me. Daniel and Kerrie were so incredibly happy and the emotions I was seeing weren’t forced, they were real and turned out to be some of the best pictures I feel I’ve ever taken. They and their families allowed me into their lives and trusted my vision to capture these really special memories and emotions and for that, I am thankful. This is not something I ever take for granted when I work with people. In fact, it’s why I love what I do.
Thank you both for having me along and I wish you many, many long and happy years together.

Bonnie at Ruby Reds Floral did an amazing job on the flowers! Even the lace around the stems matched Kerrie’s dress.
Kerrie helping her sister with the finishing touches on her dress. Kerrie has the cutest grandparents! I happened to walk upstairs at Bella Bay Inn and found her grandparents. As a photographer, it’s so important to think outside of the box and I’m glad I was prepared to catch this really special moment between them. Thank you to my friend and colleague Kate Gardiner for spending some time with the guys and shooting with me. Kerrie bought Daniel and the guys this really awesome North Carolina State suspenders to wear with their tuxes. Love it! Some girl time before the walk down the aisle. You two are so cute! Ruby Reds Floral with the help of Kerrie, created beautiful, beautiful reception tables.
I loved the idea of having all of their families wedding pictures on a table for family and friends to enjoy. They sent their guests home with miniature bottles of Cook’s Champagne. Great idea! I think all guys love Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’!For their last dance, all of their guests left the dance floor and gave Kerrie and Daniel a moment alone while the band played.
Yesterday, I had an amazing day. Why, you ask? Because I got to spend it with these two amazing people on the most special day of their new lives together. Enjoy your sneak peek, Kerrie and Daniel.
Last week, I met up with Kerrie and Daniel for their engagement session in San Marco. It was actually our first time meeting even though they booked me in January to shoot their November wedding. I was so excited to finally meet them face to face! Let me just say, they were definitely worth the wait. They are so cute ! Not to mention, extremely photogenic. It totally made my part a lot easier. We had a great time talking and shooting in various San Marco locations and we also took a short drive into downtown Jacksonville. I’m so excited about their wedding later this fall. No doubt it will be full of great style and lots of fun. Kerrie and Daniel, thanks for having me document this special time in your relationship! XOXO Dana Kerrie has these amazing blue eyes. Gorgeous!The next 6 images are courtesy of Bistro Aix in San Marco. Thanks to Chris (the manager on duty when we stopped by) for allowing us to take some shots in the restaurant and bar! You’re awesome!
