Love is love. These two beautiful ladies love each other, they also love their charming dog Carlton! They are getting married out of state, but they wanted to have some pictures taken in their home town with each other as well as their cute pup! Rollins is an excellent venue near Orlando for engagement photos - so many little areas where you could spend hours getting them all! Check out all the variety these two ladies got out of their shoot!
Graduation just happened for all those lucky 2017 Seniors, but now is the time to start thinking about portraits for all of you 2018 Seniors! This is Austin and he's just graduated from high school and is headed off to his new adventure in college. Exciting! When you book one of our portrait sessions you will receive roughly 80-100 edited images and an hour session at your choice of location in the Orlando area. Senior portrait sessions should be fun and show off your child's personality. These are especially popular for graduation invitations or announcements. Book yours early!
What some great advice? Get a wedding videographer for your big day! :-) Most people tell me later they regretted not purchasing the video and wished they had. Photos are fantastic and a must have for sure, but in videos, you actually can hear the emotion in your voices as your reading your vows as well as in your toasts. The two of you will be so overwhelmed that day with whats going on, it will be nice to look back and enjoy it again from a different prospective. Plus, it's only 5 or 10 minutes so you can share it on facebook with your friends and family and always watch it year after year. Check out Adam and Danielle's beautiful video at Dubsdread's Tap Room.
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!
