We love our wedding clients. We really do. We end up becoming good friends with many, and stay in touch with nearly everyone after the wedding day. But sometimes there are clients who we instantly bond with from the moment we meet, and look forward to every time we see them from that point forward. Nicole + Scott (engagement, wedding, day after session) are the kind of people who make you grin the second you see them. And then they adopted the cutest beagle puppy in the entire world. And THEN they announced that they are having a baby… because their love is too big not to grow. We are so incredibly excited for the huge change that’s taking place in their lives, and we had an absolute ball with them on a perfectly beautiful “winter” day here in south Florida. Much love to these kids, and we can’t wait to meet your little girl. (And yes. There will definitely be photos of her. Soon!) Click below for our favorites from the session, with a bonus of Nicole’s mom, Karen, who came to wrangle the puppy (Skylar) and was quickly pushed into a mother-daughter portrait. (We love you Karen!)
We joined Lauren + Brett and their adorable almost-one-year-old Zach at the Morikami Japanese Gardens for their family portraits earlier this month. What a perfectly beautiful day for outdoor portraits! The sun was shining almost as brightly as Zach’s winning smile. We wandered the gardens slowly, taking our time throughout the afternoon to capture casual family interactions as well as some classic portraits. (And we seriously can’t get over Zach’s face in the lead photo; how cute is this kid?) Click below for more of our favorites from the day.
Nicole + Weston’s wedding day was predicted to be a rainy one, but miraculously the rain held off until every guest was inside the brand new reception hall at the Jupiter Country Club in Jupiter, Florida. (On a side note, we love shooting everywhere our clients take us… but it’s kinda fun having only a five minute drive home at the end of a long party!) Nicole is an event planner, so every detail was planned perfectly, but even the best plans couldn’t prepare these two for the laughter and tears of their own emotional day. Seeing the faces of their family and friends riding along with them for every hilarious statement and every heartfelt moment was a treat. The ceremony was held in the courtyard of the country club in front of the fountains, just past the beautiful arbor walkway; the reception was a crazy party hosted by the exuberant M2G (2DJs1Violin), who kept the dance floor packed for the entire night. (Seriously, #partylikeapoundstone should be a common phrase, these guys kept us on our toes!) Check out our favorites below, and click here to be notified when the full gallery is available.
We met up with Mindy + Anthony at MacArthur Beach State Park on Singer Island for their engagement session recently, and the weather was absolutely beautiful! Anthony’s sister Cindy was one of our brides a couple of years ago, so technically we’d already met, but it was fun to spend some time together without the controlled chaos of a destination wedding distracting everyone! Mindy + Anthony’s love is touching, sweet, and obviously deeply seated, with the kind of familiarity that only comes after being together for years. The kind of love that brings laughter to your lips and a gleam to your eyes. Click below to scroll through some of our favorites from this quintessential Florida winter afternoon by the water.
We met Brian earlier this summer in Quechee, Vermont when we overheard him mention that he was a wedding photographer along with his wife, Abi Elaine (check out their work here). We shamelessly admitted to eavesdropping, introduced ourselves, and secretly hoped we’d found new photographer buddies who live in Vermont (Em’s home state and one of our favorite places to shoot). We were so happy when they contacted us for new portraits of themselves as a couple– we love working with other photographers, and photographing couples who’ve been married already adds a relaxed, comfortable element that’s rarely seen on wedding days.
Oh, and did we mention that this session took place right up the road from where Abi grew up, in the glorious fall color of October in Vermont? (Seriously, if you haven’t seen foliage in this part of New England, you’re missing out.) We’re so in love with these images… why can’t it be fall all the time!? Check out our favorites below, and leave some comment love for these two cuties!
