Christine and Jack are such a cute couple! They opted to do a first look photo which we think is a really great moment to capture - Jack had the best reaction to his bride I've ever seen. He was overcome with emotion and said, "How do you prepare yourself for that moment? I just wasn't ready for that," he says as he choked back tears. I don't think you can, you have to just embrace it for what it is, it's a big moment. We love that Jack and Christine allowed us to capture such an amazingly beautiful day. These two had a fantastic time and you could really see the love they have for one another. Special thanks to Anna Christine Events, Citrus Club Orlando, Flowers by Leslie and Sprinkles Cakes!
When you have fantastic venues like Alfond Inn, Rollins College Chapel and Sorosis Women's Club - you will certainly have amazing photos with those locations! Denise and Joseph had a bold and classic color choice of red as an accent for the big day. There is no other color that speaks louder than red! Especially paired with white. The Rollins Chapel even matched their colors. Whatever colors you choose, don't be afraid to go bold! It looks awesome. Check it out! Special shout out to Berrylynn Weddings & Event Plannin for their excellent skills keeping everyone organized and running smoothly!
Ever think about going somewhere outdoors besides a park for an engagement session? Check out the beautiful Maitland Art Center, right near Orlando. It's a really cool location with lots of historic Mayan features and lots of interest for your engagement photography session. Here is what they say about their venue: "The breathtaking cornerstone of the National Historic Landmark campus of A&H’s Maitland Art Center, the Mayan Chapel & Courtyard boasts a truly unique atmosphere. Your guests are enveloped by stunning architecture that appears to be cradled in the surrounding nature." It's definitely worth a look if you haven't seen it! It's awesome for not only engagement sessions, but they do weddings as well! Thanks for an excellent session Jessica and Chris!
Have you been having sleepless nights worrying about the rain on your big day? Well, we figure there is no use worrying about things you have no control over. :-) If your wedding is in Florida, there is a pretty high chance you'll have time during the day at some point where it's not raining! And when it's not, we'll make sure we sneak out and get a few outside shots! It may rain, it may not, but either way, rest assured, you'll get a fantastic set of photos! Not sure? Check out Jessica + Matt's wedding photography below. Their wedding was at the fun and quirky venue, the Orlando Science Center, which is filled with endless exciting indoor locations. The weather wasn't perfect that day, but we prefer to think rain is good luck on your wedding day! Big shout out to DJ Live Production for keeping the music pumping!
Have DIY Wedding plans in the future? Check out what Megan and Jamal did at the Lake Mary Events Center! Their invitations were so cool, so I asked her how she did it and she said, "It was easy! I just downloaded a template online!" If you look closely at the photos, even the flowers were hand-made out of a thin wood along with paper to create a unique look for their wedding. Megan and Jamal tied the knot at the Lake Mary Events Center and it was beautiful! There are many beautiful places for wedding photography in Orlando, but the Lake Mary Events Center has some amazing sunsets over looking the lake behind the building. The couple even had indoor market lighting to spice up the look of the space too, which I've never seen before at this venue, what a fresh idea for the space! Check it out below!
Ever think about giving your wedding a theme? Meet Robyn and Andrew, they did! They wanted to incorporate the theme, classic Hollywood and also wanted to continue that theme into their save-the-date card photography. Robyn suggested the Enzian in Maitland, FL for her engagement session - what a great idea! Robyn even found a cool purse on Etsy that looked like a classic movie admit one ticket. When thinking about your engagement session photography think about incorporating a theme, it's fun!
Joan and Richard wanted to do something special for their reception to thank all their guests for being there. They booked our "Feature" wedding video package but decided to add on a little extra. We met with them before the wedding to put together a video they could play for all their guests right before the couple were introduced into the reception. The video thanks the guests and also tells the love story of how this awesome couple met and fell in love. What a great add on to really make your wedding videography special, not only do you have memories of the day, but also a video telling your story, exactly how you remember it. Check out "Meet the Conelys" to listen to their love story, then check out the highlights from Joan and Richard's big day. Congrats guys!

So you had a baby, YAY! Now I'm sure its time to get some newborn photography done! Lots of people in the Orlando area ask us: Whats better, studio baby photography, or more of a lifestyle feel. The answer is.... both are great! It totally depends on what kind of style you are looking for.
We shot Amy and Mike's wedding, her baby bump and now we are super happy to introduce Atticus Fox (I know! Cool name!). This was shot at their home with a lifestyle feel, they wanted to be part of the shoot and do it in the most natural place possible. We got a bunch of cute images of this little guy, here's a few for you to check out.
This weekend Kelsey and James came down from Chicago Illinois for their engagement photography session here in Orlando! This couple were here on vacation in Orlando and decided that the sunshine state was the perfect place to get some cute engagement photography. We spent some time walking around Lake Eola, hanging out, and generally having a fun time. We love shooting engagement sessions, its cute couples like this that make our day :) Congrats to Kelsey and James on their engagement, and all the best for the big day!
