Ashley and Brian – South Florida Wedding Photographer – Sneak Peek

We’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a long time. I remember clearly meeting Ashley and Brian and Brian’s mom at our consultation nearly a year ago. It may be a coincidence but I think I’m seeing this pattern where the more likely one of our brides is to have her mom or her fiancee’s mom come to the consultation… the more likely the bride will be to effortlessly dodge the inevitable curve balls on the wedding day.  That observation nonwithstanding, we love it when we meet with brides who are being helped by mothers or future mothers in law – I guess we find those clients to be the most aligned with our very strong emphasis on family in our coverage priorities.

The wedding, at the gorgeous Addison location did present Ashley with plenty of opportunities to panick due to schedule issues serious enough to force us to split the family portrait sessions into THREE chunks… yet Ashley was the image of calm.  Brian is indeed a lucky man…  he got himself a gorgeous bride with nerves of steel!

Here’s a sneak peek of the wedding.  Enjoy those photos.








I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek. The full set will be ready within the next 5 or 6 weeks.

Krystin and Jim – Richmond, VA wedding – South Florida Destination Wedding Photographer

I could write a lot of words about Jim and Krystin. I will say this: the day I shoot my last wedding I will probably spend some time thinking back to the years doing this and undoubtedly I will think back to fun clients, the crazy clients, and the most amazing clients. There is no doubt in my mind that these two will occupy a special place… and while it may seem cliche’ to say this I really do hope that we manage to keep in touch, maybe bump into each other when life allows it… anyway, those of you who are reading this are most likely their family and friends, so you know what I’m talking about.

It’s been a long time since Jim first asked if someone would shoot engagement photos for him and Krystin. It wasn’t really supposed to work out either… he was looking for someone in St. Augustine… a full 5 hours away. I volunteered nonetheless figuring I could stay with family in Palm Coast. Life intervened and before you know it I was shooting their engagement in Miami, in gorgeous Vizcaya and then down to South Beach. Oh they weren’t engaged at the time, Jim surprised Krystin in the middle of our “vacation portraits” wink wink. Oh and I hired an awesome photographer friend, Tony Schreiber to shoot the engagement with me… just to make it doubly-epic.

Fast forward what seems like a lifetime and Lisette, Tony (Jim and Krystin decided to go for the “Signature Second” option) and I were on a plane bound for Virginia.

It was such an awesome experience. Walking into the Salon and hugging Krystin as not just a client, but a friend who was getting married that day (we’re facebook friends and had chatted many times about the wedding and about silly stuff as well), and of course meeting her mother and sister and the rest of the bridal gang.

The shot above was taken from outside the Salon.  Kudos to whoever keeps those windows clean.  Great job!!!

Throughout the set here and of course in the full set that’s now live on the proof site you’ll see some amazing photos by Tony and some epic captures by Lisette… she probably won’t read this, so I’m going to take an opportunity to say how proud I am of the dedication she’s been putting into helping our business take leaps and bounds forward. I won’t identify all the shots taken by them but I’ll point out a few that I really love.

Here’s one Lisette took from the opposite angle that i took the one above:

I loved the idea she had so I had to get a shot of her in action:

The end.

Thanks guys for being so awesome. Thank you for trusting us with creating a document of this wonderful new beginning. Thank you again to Krystin’s mom who thoughtfully packed a bagged lunch for the three of us as well… thank you to everyone in the bridal party for being so cool to work with, and for not making fun of me for the catastrophic slide down the side of the mountain (LOL). And for laughing at my jokes, and for never getting enough of “Sexy Tiger, Sexy Tiger!”

Ciao!

Alessandro and Lisette

Villardia and Jermaine – Fort Lauderdale Wedding Photographer – Sneak Peek

We’ve been blessed so far with brides who seem to have way above average when it comes to selecting the colors for their wedding, especially in terms of avoiding the stereotype of having the bridesmaids look like something from the candy isle 😉  Villardia is way up there in terms of this… when we walked into her room and saw the dresses we were both in awe.  Awesome taste, V!

We knew we’d have  great time shooting this wedding for two reasons… because we had a blast with them during their engagement session (they brought a lot of ideas to the table) and because we knew quite a few of the people in this wedding were people from another awesome wedding we shot about a year ago.  We were NOT disappointed.

Here’s a longer-than-usual sneak peek… a bit long in the making too actually… (we’re still adjusting to our switch to Nikon so the processing is still taking quite a bit longer than before) enjoy!

Oh… you will have to come back once the set is done as among other things this wedding featured the most emotional mohter-son dance we’ve ever shot.  J and his mom were so incredibly adorable!!!! 🙂

Natalie Bridals at Vizcaya – Miami Wedding Photographer – Sneak Peek

Bridals at Vizcaya… is there a more perfect setting in all of South Florida to ahve your bridals? Sure… Bridals at the Old Spanish Monastery might be another great option, but if the weather is cooperating and you don’t need the safety-belt that the old Spanish Monastery offers, nothing compares to Vizcaya’s variety of options… ah if only the administrators at Vizcaya decided to offer a limited higher-cost permit that allowed shooting for an other hour and a half or so… just as they escort you out… that’s when the light is best!

Natalie looked stunningly regal against the Vizcaya backdrop. She’s got that simply elegant look that might remind some of one of our most popular first ladies… yeah I’m talking to you Andy… better get started on that political career I guess – LOL.

Ok, no more words… just our gorgeous bride in this sneak peek.
