Kate and Nate's One Year Anniversary Portraits! Rollins, Winter Park

We just love to get the opportunity to take pictures of all of our couples on all of their special occasions, not just their wedding day.  We did engagement photography, wedding photography, and now Kate and Nate got some portraits for their one year anniversary.  We took a walk around Rollins on a beautiful day, this is such a great place around Orlando for some portraits.  Congrats to Kate and Nate on their first year, and we can't wait to see you for year 2, or any other surprises that come along!

Outdoor Family Photography Central Florida | Alexis and Brandon had a Baby!

Alexis and Brandon are such great people, when we did their wedding photography we knew it wasn't going to be long before they called us back for some baby pictures!!!  Check out this smile!  We can't work out if she looks more like mom or dad, either way she is adorable.  These guys are pretty laid back and wanted their family photography to be the same.  We hung out in the park while these guys showed off their new little edition to the family!

Alexis + Brandon | Wedding Photography and Videography Combination!

A couple of months ago we introduced you to Alexis and Brandon and their adorable candid Wedding Video.   

Well today we want to share the photos of that amazing day at Mission Inn Resort, and there's a good reason why... check out the blog tomorrow when we catch up with Alexis and Brandon to find out more!

With wedding photography we tend to see a lot of variations of reds and pinks, a green color theme is not as common, but is equally striking! These ladies chose to wear several different shades of green, which has huge advantages if your ladies are all from different states. Pick a color, pick a dress - simple right? Don't be afraid to add some patterns in there too if it works.  The green didn't stop there, Alexis's bouquet was more foliage based rather than solely reliant on flowers. Which it's always nice to see something different, plus it's going to save you significant costs with your florist. Check out all their cool wedding touches and details.

Katie and Mike | Legends @ Mission Inn Resort | Wedding Photography Lake County

We had an awesome time doing Katie and Mike's Wedding Photography over at Mission Inn Resort.  They chose an outdoor ceremony by the fountain and had their reception in Legends, which looked beautiful!  These two fantastic people have been together for 10 years so it was definitely time to throw a big party to celebrate and make it official.  Katie looked STUNNING in her sleek wedding dress and Mike.... well Mike looks like Pierce Brosnan to me... who wouldn't want to marry a James Bond lookalike.  Check out a few of their wedding images, and their sweet dance moves.

Traditional or Non-Traditional Setting? Golden Bear Club | Jamie + Michael | Orlando Wedding Photography

Have you been trying to decide between a traditional wedding ceremony and a more non-traditional setting with a quirky venue? There are a lot of benefits to both, but it just depends on what you feel is most significant to you and your partner's big day.

When you're getting married in a church the structure is already in place - it's not their first rodeo, they do hundreds of weddings a year, some multiple per day. You're not going to have to rent any chairs, set up an alter and most churches even have talented musicians available. You just have to show up bring some programs and you're ready to get married. It may even be a cost saver if you belong to a local church.

If you're not traditional and feel like you and your partner want to get creative, maybe you should look into a venue that's a little outside the box. With a non-traditional wedding location, you can do almost anything. The sky is the limit. Maybe you have your heart set on an outdoor lake setting with plenty of trees or heck, maybe it's tying the knot at your favorite brewery. It's a more relaxed event and the atmosphere feels carefree. With these types of venues you can DIY to your hearts content or hire anyone to come in and decorate it for you. However, there are venues out there too like The Acre in Orlando that doesn't need much decorating at all - it's just quirky all by itself.

No matter what you're looking for, it's out there. In Central Florida there are no shortages of amazing locations.

Michelle + Zach | Orlando Wedding Photography | Mission Inn Marina Del Rey

Yay for this venue, it's such a beautiful outdoor setting! Not only is it the perfect setting, but Mission Inn Resort's Marina Del Rey can be more casual or upscale depending on how you want to decorate it. These two accented their wedding with a lot of bright colors which always looks great in your wedding photography. Did I mention she had succulents in her bouquet? I love those! One of the advantages of the Maria is it's killer sunsets, which make for some amazing sunset wedding photos. Check out all of Michelle and Zach's fun below!

Parker is 2 years old! Orlando Family Photography

When you're 2, you've got life all figured out. You use your power of cuteness to get your way with pretty much anything. Parker is no different, what a cute little guy.

Family photos are the key to capturing these great milestones in your child's life. Life goes so fast these days you hardly remember yesterday. Selfie's are great to share on the phone but you're probably not going to blow that up and put it on your wall - you're going to want some professional family portraits taken.

This is where we come in and we're going to have some fun. We always suggest going somewhere that the entire group can get involved. If you have little ones, a playground is always a good idea, they can just be their silly selves. Parker's family took him to the Orlando Science Center for a day out and he had a blast playing in all the exhibits. We have plenty of ideas: bubbles, pie eating contests, water balloon fights, or even a pillow fight - let's create some fun images together!

Catie + Chris | Intimate Orlando Wedding Photography | Mission Inn Resort

Ever thought about inviting fewer people to your wedding? Intimate weddings are a really great way to celebrate in a big way, even though you're keeping your guest list small. It has a some huge advantages. The first obvious one is price. You won't have to pay for as many guests and venue rentals are usually cheaper so the money you save there you might be able to upgrade your food since you're only buying a couple dinners vs hundreds. The second one is it's more personal. You will have a chance to speak to every guest, not just a few. Think about all the quality time you'll be able to get on your big day. The last and most important one is you'll have less stress. Instead of worrying about so many people, you'll be able to focus on what really matters, which is celebrating the two of you starting a life together! Check out Catie and Chris's Intimate Mission Inn Resort Wedding below - so many big smiles!

Mia and Renzo's Colorful Wedding | Bohemian Hotel Celebration | Celebration, FL | Orlando Wedding Photography

We love color! In wedding photography, one thing that will set any wedding apart is color! I'm sure you have a favorite color - don't be afraid to add some pop in your wedding! The color is going to show through in your images and really add something special against your white dress. Maybe your dress isn't all white either, go ahead, throw some color around that fits your style. We've had some beautiful brides in wedding dresses that weren't white at all! At Mia and Renzo's wedding celebration they certainly didn't shy away from color. Renzo's navy blue suit was amazingly handsome next to Mia's beautiful bouquet of colorful flowers. The bridesmaids wore brightly colored dresses too! Check out the way Mia and Renzo included color in such a classy way on their big day below.

Devon and Cliff | The Acre | Orlando Wedding Photography

Devon and Cliff are super adorable, so what better venue for their wedding ceremony and reception than The Acre Orlando! A beautiful outdoor rustic venue in the middle of the city that make you feel like you’re miles away from anything.

This couple wanted an intimate wedding, just close family and friends.... and of course us! Intimate wedding ceremonies are so awesome, as a photographer it gives you the chance to look at everyone’s faces during the ceremony, and capture every tear from the crowd. Plus it’s a lot easier to have one big group photograph of everyone that attended your wedding!

Check out some of the beautiful, cute and silly pictures that we had the pleasure of shooting for these guys.
