Casa Marina is one of Jacksonville’s most popular wedding venues. Jo & Jeff got married in June, unfortunately it was in the middle of one of Florida’s rainy weeks in June. Weather is always unpredictable in Florida over the summer, Jo and Jeff were amazing at rolling with the punches and their wedding turned out beautifully!
Jo sharing a beautiful moment with her future step son. Such a beautiful bride inside and out.
Jo decided to bring in some of her cultural traditions at the reception
The stormy weather cleared up just in time for a few really cool outside shots!
I love it when brides laugh… it’s possibly one of the most beautiful things to capture in a photograph on the wedding day. It’s almost like capturing pure happiness.
I adore this shot of Jeff looking at Jo and her father before walking down the isle. The weather was terrible that day and they did a first look, they didn’t really have any other choice… and him waiting to walk into the area where friends and family were seated looking down the hallway at his bride… it was an amazing moment.
Amy and Greg are by far one of my most eclectic couples. Amy is a graphic designer full of super fun ideas for both her wedding and engagement photos. Amy showed up for the session complete with Super Mario Brother’s inspired tie, hair piece and props. Plus she had balloons! What photographer could ask for anything more.
As most know I love photographing Disney Weddings… I get the privilege to work with some great brides and grooms each year. This Disney couple was no different. Their session was over the summer, but I’m very behind on blogging…
Deanna and Chris met while they were both Cast Members at Epcot! It was only fitting to have a Disney Engagement session and Wedding!
Promptly upon my return to the great state of Florida May 18th, I had agreed to second shoot a wedding along with a fellow photographer friend of mine, who happens to be very pregnant. Three days before my trek from Mississippi to Jacksonville the doctor put my friend on bed rest. This meant an 8hr wedding day in Tampa was completely out of the question! I had already planned to second shoot and relieve some of the stress of the day from her, but now found myself in the position of primary at the wedding. I had never met the Bride or Groom. Never even spoken to them on the phone, we weren’t even Facebook friends. I left my comfy bed in Jacksonville very early the morning of May 19th and drove for a little more than 4hrs to Tampa into the complete unknown!!! I have to say that Lindsey and Brett were fantastic, they rolled very well with all the punches of the day, they were warm and welcoming to myself and my assistant. They fed us well, had a beautiful day and I’m very pleased with the way everything worked out… very exhausted by the end of the day, but very pleased! Here are the sneak peeks for their wedding…
