Alicia & Brent | Hyatt Key West Wedding | Key West Wedding Photographer

November 26th, 2014

It had seemed like forever since we did Alicia (and it’s pronounced Ali-SH-a) and Brent’s engagement session, well both of them.  So it also seemed like it took forever for their Key West wedding to get here and it did and holy cow was it a blast! I got into the Keys on Friday and […]

 

It had seemed like forever since we did Alicia (and it’s pronounced Ali-SH-a) and Brent’s engagement session, well both of them.  So it also seemed like it took forever for their Key West wedding to get here and it did and holy cow was it a blast!

I got into the Keys on Friday and let’s just say that the weather was not cooperating.  It was rainy, chilly (for Key West) and the wind was blowing just a little more than we wanted it to.  We ended up having the rehearsal under a pavilion at the Hyatt since that would be the back up plan if it rained on Saturday.  Eh, we weren’t all that excited about it (let’s be honest here because you go to Key West to get married on/by the water) but we can’t do anything about Mother Nature.

Saturday morning we got up and there was still a bit of an overcast but by 10am, the rainy clouds had parted and we had gorgeous Key West blue skies!  I sent Alicia a text saying “We’re having a wedding on the dock today!!!!”, she sent me back a picture over looking the water from their hotel room and it was on!  Mother Nature came through and we were having a dock wedding!

Their day couldn’t of been more perfect and thank you to all the vendors that made it possible.  Having a destination wedding can sometimes be a little unnerving since you are hiring vendors from so far away (but that’s why they brought me down there lol) but everyone made it amazing!

Beau….oh Beau!  Seriously you are one of my best father of the brides!  Alicia did a first look and shot with her dad before the ceremony.  I’ll spare the photo of Alicia’s face after she took the shot lol  She’d probably kill me for that one ;)

When Alicia was little, she had tons of Polly Pockets.  And by tons, I mean TUBS!  So her mom found her the bride and groom Polly Pocket for her.

They had photos of their parents on their wedding day so having them each hold their parents was perfect!

Jennifer & Rob | Engaged | Dunedin Engagement Session

November 20th, 2014

One of the things that I have my couples do, is fill out an engagement questionnaire.  I want to know all about the two of you, the proposal and all the juicy details.  When reading Jennifer & Rob’s…well my heart melted, not gonna lie!  I have to share this!! I arranged a weekend getaway in […]

 

One of the things that I have my couples do, is fill out an engagement questionnaire.  I want to know all about the two of you, the proposal and all the juicy details.  When reading Jennifer & Rob’s…well my heart melted, not gonna lie!  I have to share this!!

I arranged a weekend getaway in Orlando over 4th of July weekend. Weekend getaways in Orlando are a pretty common occurrence for us, we probably go there 3-4 times a year just to relax and getaway without going too far. So Jen never suspected this trip to be any different, especially with the stress of recently purchasing the gym. However, for the weeks prior to this trip I had been designing her engagement ring based on the years of comments she has made to me about our friends engagement rings. We arrived in Orlando on Friday July 4th, and played around at the hotel, hit the gym and the pool and then went back to the room to get ready for dinner. I anxiously waited for Jen to finish getting ready then went to the hotel room safe to get my wallet (which I commonly keep in there), but this time I also grabbed the ring box which she was unaware of. I asked her in a kind of a joking matter “Is that what you’re wearing to dinner?” She looked at me and said “yeah, why?” Then I took the ring box out from behind my back, opened it up and asked her if she wanted to wear this too. Hers eyes lit up and she asked if I was serious, to which I responded “Jennifer will you marry me and spend the rest of your life with me?” She said yes, and I slid the ring onto her trembling finger. We then went to a nice dinner at Flemings and celebrated!

I mean come on?!

So on to their engagement session.  Since they are a hometown type of couple, we decided on doing a Dunedin engagement session but little did I know that the craft fair was going on in downtown Dunedin.  If you’ve ever been to a Dunedin Craft Fair, Main Street shuts down!  As in no cars, tons of people and there aren’t many places we can tuck and hide.  Oh but we did it.

We actually started at Dunedin House of Beer, grabbed a drink, relaxed for a few minutes and then headed down into Dunedin.  There were still a ton of people down there for being late on a Sunday afternoon but we managed to dodge around them.  They brought Logan (their 4 legged child) which always makes me giddy when couples want to bring their dogs so he had to make his pictorial debut.

Can’t wait for their Palm Harbor White Chapel wedding in May!  We’ve already started talking about what formals we’re going to get!
