Eight years and counting | Palm Harbor Wedding Photographer

Before I start this, let me add.  I was no where near even thinking about having another child.  Matt was almost 16, I would say almost out the door but who am I kidding but I was pretty happy with it being just me and Matt. Now…welcome to April 2006 and I found out that it […]

Before I start this, let me add.  I was no where near even thinking about having another child.  Matt was almost 16, I would say almost out the door but who am I kidding but I was pretty happy with it being just me and Matt.

Now…welcome to April 2006 and I found out that it wasn’t going to be just me and Matt anymore and into the world came this cutie.

Ummm yeah.  15 years, 9 months and 20 days apart (I really don’t recommend it for your own sanity lol)  But here I am, 8 years later and I wouldn’t change it for the world!

Jacob came into this world with my attitude and personality.  He’s my strong willed, stubborn but yet the most loving of my two kids (sorry Matt lol)  He’ll just tell me he’ll love me out of the blue but that’s usually right after he’s gotten in trouble.  He’s way too smart for his own good and a self proclaimed math genius.  He loves his brother (okay, well maybe his Supra more but he really does love Matt) and even though Matt & Mimoza aren’t married, he still calls her his sister.  He claims to know more than everyone, especially when it comes to Minecraft and he’ll talk your ear off with a matter of fact opinion if you let him.

He’s usually my human light stand (with bribery of course), he comes on all most all of my sessions with me and usually ends up telling me how cute all my senior girls are (help me now!).

I wanted to do something a little bit different then just showing what he looked like then and what he looks like now, so I made him recreate some pictures.  There were so many I wanted to do but totally ran out of time.

 

Just for me to sit back and really see how much he’s grown…first day of pre-k, first grade and second grade.  Wow~

From about 6 months old, Jacob has had “bunny”.  When he was about 2 years old, I had to hunt eBay to find another bunny so we had a back up (parents, I know you’re with me on this one!)  This isn’t “original” bunny but he’s been with Jacob all these years.  Jacob wanted to have pictures taken with bunny so of course, since it’s his birthday I had to :)

This is my life and I’m completely okay with that lol

Shana & Brandon | Cape Cod Lighthouse Inn Wedding | Lisa Otto Photography

October 14th, 2014

Three years ago, I shot Jessica & Charlie’s wedding on Honeymoon Island.  Shana was one of Jessica’s bridesmaid and her and Brandon had only been dating a year.  After I shot their wedding, Shana and I became friends, she followed my Facebook page and I watched as her and Brandon got more serious along the way.

Last year, I really, really wanted an Arizona wedding.  When you live down here, you kind of crave something other than the beach so Arizona was a good place, right?  Shana would tell me that if her and Brandon ever got married, she would bring me out to AZ to shoot their wedding.  Fast forward to this past holiday season when Brandon put a ring on her finger!  About a week or so later, I got a message from Shana saying “I know you really wanted an Arizona wedding but how’s Cape Cod instead?”  Well…ummm…how in the world could I say no?  They had settled on the Lighthouse Inn which was the quaintest lighthouse, with these amazing cottages and well, such a Cape Cod feeling.  Now bear in mind that this is coming from this Florida girl that has never been to New England so I was in a little bit of shock but a good shock.

Saturday morning the rains came….and came….and came.  This is not how I had envisioned their wedding day.  It was cold, a tad windy but we were going to make it work!  The best thing that happened was right around 4 o’clock, with a 6pm ceremony, the skies opened up and the rain went away.  It seriously could not have been a better evening for their ceremony.  The staff at the Lighthouse Inn made sure that everything was perfect, everything went according to plan and that it did!

Shana mixed a little bit of her love for Disney into the wedding so there really wasn’t one set theme.  Her Oleg Cassini princess style dress from David’s Bridal was perfect for her!  Brandon looked seriously sharp in the tuxes from Men’s Warehouse.

Thank you Mr. & Mrs. B for welcoming me in and bringing me up there to capture Shana’s wedding!  I had an absolute blast!!

Huge shout out to all the vendors involved that made Shana & Brandon’s day amazing!!

I love, love when my couple do a first look.  There really is a different feeling seeing your future spouse at the first look and then seeing them again as you walk down the aisle.  Just ask any of my couples that have done one.  It’s an amazing feeling.

When the clouds broke for the ceremony, it was absolutely perfect!  They couldn’t of asked for a better sunset for their ceremony.

Their son Niko, is only 7 months old so walking down the aisle wasn’t going to happen.  How flipping cute is this boat that Shana had custom made for him to be pulled down the aisle?  I died, not going to lie.

Shana and Brandon tied the fisherman’s knot.  Cape Cod…fisherman’s knot?  Kind of fits but it’s also the strongest knot there is and will only become stronger under pressure <3
