The only time I’ve ever photographed a wedding while balancing on high heels and worrying about the camera dislodging my false eyelashes was the time when I photographed my best friend’s wedding, and was also a bridesmaid!! Luckily I had my trusty friend Erin Costa second shooting, and she took care of all of the photos that I needed to be in:) And despite all of the things that could have gone wrong, the day went perfectly smoothly! I walked down the aisle with the other girls, and then scooped up the camera I had stashed behind the front row and photographed the wedding, jumping back in just in time for the recessional. The wedding was beautiful, a true gathering full of love and joy. Both the ceremony and reception took place at the Borland Center, a venue in Boca Raton, FL. Heather and Tommy included their two children in the ceremony and reception, and we all had an amazing time!
Stacy and Steve are 2 doctors (and Stacy is from a family of Doctors!) who met in Oncology school and fell in love. Their lush and gorgeous outdoor wedding was held at her parents house in Southern Pines, and the beautiful fall colors she incorporated were a feast for the eyes! Details included: Hand written wooden seat cards with tiny flashlights, a s’mores bar, boxes full of goodies for all the kids, and elegant table settings incorporating wood, orange and red and amber textiles and blooms, and twinkling candles, all under a beautifully lit tent surrounded by stately pines. Steve surprised Stacy with a serenade, and they both surprised their guests with a choreographed Thriller dance!
Loved shooting Bethany and Steve’s beautiful wedding in Destin! Steve, a business owner, and Bethany, a former New Orleans Saints cheerleader, hosted a stunning day full of laughter, tears, and celebration. The Emerald Grande in Destin, FL is a wonderful venue, especially for a destination wedding. All the guests can stay in the hotel and the beautiful deck with the incredible view and reception options are all a minute away. After the ceremony, we snuck a ride via water taxi to the beach for some couple photos, and then back to the hotel for the party!
I love a long flowing veil! Keri’s Fayetteville bridal session was so fun…we walked all around the downtown looking for good spots and it was hard to narrow it down to just a few. Between the parks and the main strip, there was a lovely variety of modern and classic settings. Add a little bit of wind for the veil and some sunshine and this session was one of my favorites of the year:)
I was so excited to finally meet Jordan and Eddie in person after our phone conversations! They are going to be having a fun Halloween wedding this fall at Eden Gardens, one of my very favorite venues. I love the vibrant colors they chose for their session:)
