Jenna + PJ’s wedding in Key Largo last week was absolutely lovely… we’re still not sure who was more excited about the classic car they had for their day, the newlyweds or us. ;-) Can’t wait to share the rest soon! (Two sneak peek images because we just couldn’t decide.)  xoxo– Em + Steve

    Way to use that gorgeous car! Gorgeous photos as always you guys <3

We’ve been finding more and more that the couples we work with are straight-up awesome. Tiffany + Jonathan are a particularly shining example of this trend; sweet, funny, and delightfully considerate of each other and the people around them, we can hardly say that working with them was “work”. Their lovely wedding started with a perfectly bright and hot Florida day, with views from their rooms at the Hilton of the beach and ocean glittering in the sun. They found ways to weave family and friends into every aspect of their day, including a gaggle of nieces and nephews who nearly stole the show. The weather turned stormy just before sunset, but managed to hold off until everyone was under the cover of the Hilton’s outdoor reception area, and then the spitting rain didn’t matter one bit while they danced the night away. Check out some of our favorite images from the day below!

    Absolutely gorgeous wedding.

We can’t tell you how much we love these guys. We are absolutely itching to show you the rest of their images… but this sneak peek will have to suffice for now. Many, many more images from Sarah + Todd’s beautiful wedding at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens are coming soon!

We can’t help but grin every time we think of Angela + John. It doesn’t hurt that they have adorable cats [who made a cameo at their engagement session last fall], and that they’re some of the most laid-back and happy people we’ve ever known. Their wedding day was the epitome of relaxation; despite all the potential stressors of a day this complex, these two let everything just melt away while they laughed and enjoyed themselves. (Their secret? “No wedding party!” they quip, grinning again. Not an option for everyone, but certainly worked out well here!)

They searched all over South Florida for a venue that had a quintessential Floridian feel… without actually being outside. As locals they understood that the weather can be fickle in April, sometimes nice, sometimes rainy, and often surprisingly hot for early spring. As luck would have it, this turned out to be an especially hot and sunny day; having nearly every moment indoors turned out to be a very smart idea, though the brilliant choice of Pier 66 as a venue meant that day didn’t feel “indoors” in a negative way. In fact it was quite the opposite! The atrium ceremony on the ground floor had a light airiness to it that felt like being in both a soaring concert hall and an intimate garden at the same time; the reception on top of Pier 66 was held in a rotating room, filled with floor to ceiling windows on all sides to let in the gorgeous sunset and the lights from the city.

Best of all they surrounded themselves with people they loved, and danced the night away. We’re so happy we were able to join Angela + John for their wedding day; click below to see some of our [very many] favorites.

A year ago we heard about an amazingly inexpensive deal for a trip to Iceland. (We soon learned that Iceland in November is pretty much the extreme off-season, with the sun rising around 10am and setting at 3:30pm… but it’s still an incredible place to see.) We figured hey… why not? We usually try to travel or escape around Thanksgiving anyway, as we’re both turkey babies, so we booked the trip on a whim and then settled down to wait for six months.

We already shared our favorites from our portraits and exploring with Thu + Alek; this is more of a personal post, about our adventures together during this whirlwind of a trip. The biggest recommendation we can make is this: go see for yourself. We can’t wait to go back. (Click the image above for much, much more…)

    Oh this makes me want to go so badly! And maybe steal your black and white poncho sweater…

  • Bärbel MortonMay 28, 2015 - 4:39 am

    oh my goodness, I do want to go thanks to your travel report. I am going to ask to meet up with some of my German friends in Iceland. And I too would like to steal that poncho from you.

  • Monique Van de VenMay 29, 2015 - 1:24 pm

    Wow, these photos are incredible. Fun to see all the stylish winter garb, I can almost feel how cold and windswept Iceland was! It is an inspiration to try a wonderful place in off season.

    What a delightful travelogue! Gorgeous photos, as always, and it was fun to see you two cavort in such a unique countryside. Yes, we’ll have to explore this country someday, too!
