April and Matt - Innisbrook Resort - Tampa Wedding Photographer

April and Matt got married in an outdoor ceremony at Innisbrook resort in Palm Harbor, Florida. This is the second wedding we had the opportunity to photograph at Innisbrook. It did not disappoint. There are tons of locations in the Tampa area that are great for wedding photographers, but Innisbrook provides a mix that isnt available at many locations. The golf course is beautiful and the banquet hall is huge.

April did an amazing job planning the decor. Her dress was stunning.. Matt cleaned up pretty nicely as well :) It was a pleasure and an honor to join them on their wedding day and photograph their wedding. Here are some of the images. Enjoy!

Samantha and Brian | Wedding Pictures in Hawaii | Hawaii Wedding Photographer

We recently traveled to the Big Island in Hawaii to photograph Samantha and Brian's wedding around the Kona area. How can you say "no" to a wedding in Hawaii, especially one that involves a helicopter? This was a wedding photographer's dream come true.

We travel A LOT for our business. We have photographed destination sessions in Paris, Iceland, Stockholm, Aruba, Barbados, Italy, etc, but there is something about photographing a wedding in Hawaii that rises above the rest.

We have known Samantha since middle school. So we were excited when she asked use to be her photographers. As wedding photographers, we have the opportunity to photograph amazing clients each and every year, but we rarely get the opportunity to photograph a wedding for someone that we know very well on a personal level. It makes the entire process much easier. Wedding photography is so much easier when you know the clients personally, which is why we strive to build a relationship with each of our clients. 

Photographing a wedding in Hawaii is pretty easy to be honest. There are so many different spots to photograph that its a wedding photographer's dream. It is not very difficult to get an amazing portrait.. Add a helicopter (Blue Hawaiian) to the mix and you know the photographs will be AMAZING!! This is the kind of wedding that makes other photographers jealous :)

The day following their wedding at a private waterfall, we took a trip to Volcanoes National Park on the south side of the Island of Hawaii to photograph Samantha and Brian some more. We wanted to take advantage of the erupting volcano (Kīlauea), so we headed out to the lava fields to create some amazing portraits for Samantha and Brian.

Jacqueline and Brian | Safety Harbor Resort and Spa | Tampa Wedding Photographer

Jacqueline and Brian got married a couple of months ago at the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa in Safety Harbor, Florida, just north of Tampa. This was the first wedding we have photographed at the venue and it was amazing. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast, so we had a bit of weather to deal with, but as wedding photographers, we still have to create amazing images for our clients. 

Jacqueline and Brian decided that they wanted to do a first look. We usually recommend that our clients do one as it allows us to get most of the pictures done before the wedding, so the only thing left to do after the wedding is a few creative portraits. It helps get the pictures done faster and gives you more time to party!! :)

The wedding was a blast. It helps that Jacqueline is a cheerleader for the Tampa Bay Bucs and that most of her bridal party also consisted of cheerleaders. So it was a giant dance party at the reception and they graced us with a few of their choreographed dances. In addition to the dancing, Jacqueline and Brian also hired a saxophonist to play during the reception. Man, what a treat. That guy was amazing and was able to play along with the main stream songs that the DJ played. It was certainly an awesome experience.

Congratulations Jacqueline and Brian. Thank you for choosing us to be your photographers!! 

Sammy and Dan | Micanopy Florida | Gainesville Wedding Photography

Sammy and Dan got married at Camp McConnell in Micanopy, Florida. This was an amazing outdoor location for their wedding. The amazing Ashley Bennett (http://ashleybennettevents.com) was the event coordinator, which allowed the wedding to run smoothly, and not to mention the beautiful setup that she created for the wedding and reception. It certainly makes my job easier :)

Being an outdoor Florida wedding, it was a bit on the warm side.. (ok it was hot), but it didnt rain.. See we always look to the positives :) As I mentioned, Camp McConnell provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding. They wanted something on the simple side and this location fit their desires. 

After the wedding and reception, they had a bonfire over at the fire ring. Who doesnt love a bonfire? And what is a good bonfire without smores!!

Congratulations Sammy and Dan. It was a pleasure photographing your wedding!!

Nicole and Kyle | Wedding at Bella Collina | Clermont Wedding Photographers

Nicole and Kyle got married a few months ago at Bella Collina in Clermont, Florida. When they first came to the studio to talk about their wedding plan, we had never heard of Bella Collina. Little did we know what where we were going to find ourselves a few months later.

For those that do not know, Bella Collina was designed to model buildings found in Italy. The architecture was AMAZING. This is truly a wedding photographers dream. Nicole and Kyle utilized the fountain area for their wedding. The reception was to be held outside in the in the grand lawn area of the property. However, in true Central Florida fashion, you can never know what the weather will be like. This particular day was one of the coldest of the year, however, Nicole and Kyle (as well as many of the guests) braved the cold weather so that they could have the wedding of their dreams. As we all know, the weather is rarely defeated, so a couple of hours into the reception, the decision was made to move it inside. 

Congratulations to Nicole and Kyle on their wedding. It was AMAZING!!

Rachel and Dan | Sororis Building | Lakeland Wedding Photographer

WOW... What a wedding Rachel and Dan had a few weeks ago. We were honored to be chosen as their wedding photographers for their beautiful wedding in Lakeland, Florida. The wedding was held at the First Presbyterian Church on Lake Hollingsworth. Lakeland is special to me (Curtiss) as I attended and graduated from Florida Southern College. So everytime we get a chance to photograph a wedding in Lakeland, its a bonus to get to visit areas I used to visit all the time.

As creative wedding photographers, we strive to create something fun and different for our clients. Each wedding that we photograph is a new journey. Sure, we have photographed over 200 weddings, but we approach them each as if its new to us. We want to cover the day and provide our clients with something unique and something that they will cherish. To us, its not just another wedding... Its a brand new unique event that we are honored to photograph for our clients.

This wedding was no exception. Rachel and Dan were awesome and made our job as wedding photographers that much easier. Lakeland (as the name suggests) has a ton of lakes. This provides and awesome opportunity to get some amazing sunsets. This day was no exception. We got some amazing images and got to enjoy the wedding of an amazing couple. Congrats guys! Thank you for allowing us to join you on your wedding day :)

Net and Ken | Innisbrook Wedding | Tampa Wedding PHotographer

We had the privilege to photograph Net and Ken's wedding at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club a couple of months ago. This wedding was simply amazing. They are avid golfers, so it was only fitting to incorporate a golf course into their wedding. Innisbrook provides an amazing location for photographers to create wedding images that their clients will LOVE. This set of images is no exception. As Tampa area wedding photographers, we get to shoot in all kinds of awesome locations, but Innisbrook should rank among the top in our opinion. 

That said, Net made a beautiful bride. We photographed their engagement session in St Augustine and I knew then that the wedding images would be AMAZING. You can see the love that they have for each other, so it makes our job that much easier. Congratulations you guys. Thanks for having us :)

Here is what we were able to capture as their wedding photographers at Innisbrook.
