Oldmsar Engagement Session | Katelyn & Colby

July 25th, 2017

When Katelyn contacted me about shooting her’s and Colby’s wedding, she didn’t even have a venue yet.  I had just shot one of her friends weddings (Jordan & Jarod’s) and she said she knew I had to shoot theirs.  She hunted for the perfect venue for 2 months, finally nailed it down to Ladybug Farms […]

 

When Katelyn contacted me about shooting her’s and Colby’s wedding, she didn’t even have a venue yet.  I had just shot one of her friends weddings (Jordan & Jarod’s) and she said she knew I had to shoot theirs.  She hunted for the perfect venue for 2 months, finally nailed it down to Ladybug Farms in Odessa, which is a fairly new venue.

Fast forward to their engagement session last night.  Since both of them grew up in Oldsmar, Katelyn decided on Oldsmar Park.  Not going to lie, I was a little apprehensive at first but I knew they had just renovated the pier and stage area, so I said let’s do it!

Well let’s just say that it was not a disappointment.  We started off around the pavilion and pier, then over to Veteran’s park and then down to the park area where the old power plant used to be (or sort of still is lol).  Being how I grew up in Oldsmar (*cough*yearsago*cough*), it was cool to head back to where I was once forbidden lol

They have a great little beach area now so we were able to get 3 different locations, all within a 2 mile area.  Just goes to show you that you don’t have to have this elaborate location to have some amazing photos.

Hyatt Key West wedding | Sara & Jeff

July 12th, 2017

Last weekend was a quick 26 hour trip to Key West for Sara & Jeff’s wedding.  They both love the Keys and fell in love with the Hyatt Key West, which ironically I had already shot there about 2 1/2 years ago so it was nice to head back down to some familiar ground. Sara […]

 

Last weekend was a quick 26 hour trip to Key West for Sara & Jeff’s wedding.  They both love the Keys and fell in love with the Hyatt Key West, which ironically I had already shot there about 2 1/2 years ago so it was nice to head back down to some familiar ground.

Sara didn’t miss a details of her wedding.  She did all the florals herself and with the help of Nika from Soiree Key West, everything fell into place.   It rained, well torrential downpour, about 1/2 hour before we were supposed to head out for formals but just like Florida, the skies brightened up as we were headed out and not a drop of rain the rest of the afternoon.

Huge thanks to all the vendors involved!  It couldn’t of all come together without you guys!
Venue:  Hyatt Centric Key West
Coordinator:  Soiree Key West
DJ:  DJ Gunz – Cutting Edge DJ
Hair/Makeup:  Bella Luxe Kiar & Makeup of the Florida Keys

I’m normally not all for DIY because 99% of the time, time gets away from you and either things don’t get done or they just don’t come out the way you want them too but Sara?  She knocked her flowers out of the park!

Can you spot her hidden Mickey’s?  She’s a HUGE Disney fan

All the girls had matching Columbia shirts with their monograms on the back.  They corresponded to the colors of their bridesmaid dresses

Jeff and all of the groomsmen got cufflinks representing things they love to do.  Fishing is Jeff’s so the reel was a perfect fit.

Sara swore she wasn’t going to cry but as soon as she read Jeff’s card, she lost it

He did good with this one.  Sara’s mom explained that the center stone is one that has now been passed down to her so it has more meaning then just a diamond necklace

Sara wanted to make sure that he and Jeff got a little one on one time before the start of everything so a first look was in order.

Before we set out to do formals, it absolutely poured!  What we didn’t know was that it left us an amazing rainbow right at their first kiss as husband and wife!

The one thing that Sara said to me before the wedding was that the pictures were one of the most important parts of her day.  She made sure to consider a lot of time for formals.  Once their first look was done, we all climbed into 2 golf carts and hit the roads of Key West.  We had over an hour to hit all the spots that Sara & Jeff wanted!

We originally had in the time line that we would head out about 8:20ish to grab the sunset at the end of Hyatt’s dock.  Around 8, I looked out, saw the clouds and sun rays, look at the DJ & coordinator (thank you Niza & Matt!) and asked if we could have an extra 20 minutes and then we’d skip the sunset shots at 8:20.  So glad we did!

Since they both fish, the table markers were types of fish; tarpon, redfish, snook, etc.  Loved that!

So Nick & Katie were trying to figure out their entrance to the reception.  They came up with swapping clothes.  I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard!

Sorry Nick…but this is now forever embedded in the internet lol
