Beach. Wedding. Love. St. Augustine FL Wedding Photographer | St. Augustine FL Professional Wedding Photographer

I love the beach. I love beautiful brides. I love good food. I love a relaxed atmosphere. This wedding had all of this & more. It was perfection. A small, intimate ceremony & reception. Just family & a few close friends. Celebrating with them.

Starting out with everyone meeting at the bar of The Reef restaurant near Vilano Beach, FL. Everyone was so relaxed, happy, & just enjoying this time together. Even when the bride arrived, there was no big to do, everyone hugged, commented how gorgeous she looked (which. She totally did.) & laughed some more. Then they headed down to the beach for their vows & back up to enjoy food & cake. It couldn’t be easier.

Even though it was July, once the sun set a bit it was not terribly hot at all. The sea breeze was wonderful & as always the ocean provided a gorgeous backdrop to make their day even more special. Even though this was only my second wedding (to see images from the May Rustic Country wedding click here) I think I am getting the hang of weddings…..& enjoying doing them. 😉  If you want to see more from Tom & Koley’s wedding you can check out their PASS album here.

Thank you so much Tom & Koley for letting me celebrate with you & capture this special day!

Bridal Portraits… Lake City FL Bridal Portrait Photographer | Live Oak FL Bridal Portraits

Last Month I was able to capture my first ever Bridal Portrait Session. I was nervous, but excited (especially as the location was the same as the wedding I was shooting later in the month).  Katrina looked beautiful & the lighting at Camp Weed was perfection.  The combination of these two made for portraits I was so happy with.

I am so blessed people allow me to capture these precious moments & memories. Thank you so much to all of you & to Katrina for making my job easy when capturing you in your gorgeous gown.

Till next time,
