Before writing anything else, let me just say what a fantastic experience I had shooting this wedding. Michael and Patricia could not have been kinder and friendlier. I had a blast photographing the groom and his attendants getting ready and the day just got better from there.
Patricia and Michael, gorgeous on the outside, awesome on the inside! Congratulations guys!!!
We started out at the “W” in Fort Lauderdale. It’s a good thing we had watches with alarms set to move us along, otherwise that place is a photographer’s paradise… what a gorgeous, gorgeous hotel! That, however pales in comparison to how incredibly cool Michael and his groomsmen were about the shoot. I suggested a playful mocking of the typical “Bride getting reay” shots and they were ALL FOR IT. Ok… cue the photos….
The incredible invisible photographer:
A pool shot…
…and another pool shot
Even the Church itself seemed to know love was about to be celebrated within it’s walls….
ok, if you missed the reference above… check out the reflection of the stained glass!!!

my favorite photo of the day: “Reflections about Love”
The Bride may indeed have been the most beautiful woman in the world on this day… but she sure had some stiff competition:
Some of the gorgeous details…
