For photographers in the Northeast, the winter season for the most part is like a teacher’s summertime. Things are generally slow and we enjoy our downtime. It gives us the chance to do things that are neglected throughout the rest of our busy year and also gives us the chance to relax and do lunch dates with our fellow photographer friends. I did this today in fact! LOVE my lunch dates with my photographer friends! :) One thing that I have been wanting to do is share some of my favorite images from this wedding with you! It was pure magic!
This past October, I had the opportunity to second shoot this amazing wedding for my wedding photographer, Stephanie Smith. For those of you who know me or follow my blog, you know that Stephanie is the reason that I got into photography in the first place. You may also know that she lives in Florida. I LOVE Florida and always have, so I jumped at the chance to shoot a wedding there! Stephanie told me that the wedding venue was uhh-mazing, but there are no words that can really describe the beauty of this place! Bella Collina looks like something you would expect to see in Italy. From a photographer’s perspective, this place is an absolute dream come true!
Not only was the location amazing, but the wedding itself was incredible and the couple was SO much FUN! Their day was filled with so much joy and laughter. Stephanie and I had a total blast (as we always do) shooting this wedding together! Every single time we have an opportunity to shoot together, we talk about how we need to make this happen as much as possible.
Thank you Steph for this opportunity! It was so much fun!!! Let’s do it again soon, mmmmmmk???!!!!

Allow me to explain… it is not every day that you come across an entire bridal party of male gymnasts… so we took full advantage of their talents!We had a little fun with this, if you can’t tell by the photos! The groom; Ramon, works at Disney!!
Me: “Hey guys, tell me something funny that happened at the bachelor party!” This question always gets the guys laughing!
Me: “Give me GQ.” Boom.
Seriously. It should be illegal to be this good looking.
Congrats to the beautiful couple!!!
Magic. Just pure magic.
The whole bridal party was full of talent as proven in this choreographed dance number they did! It was EPIC.
Oh yea, and their toasts were done to a rap song… there was nothing boring about this reception!
Yup. This happened. I was so scared he was going to hit the ceiling and get knocked out!
Sparklers were the perfect way to end this magical day!
