Maria & Ricardo…Ringling Museum Engagement Session, Sarasota Wedding & Engagement Photographer, Destination Wedding Photographer

Well, I have to say I LOVE engagement sessions.  It’s that opportunity to have quality time with your couples where you are getting to know them and they are getting to know you and it is always the most fun!  I know I know, we don’t post enough engagement sessions.  All I can say is so many beautiful weddings, so little time…so let’s just move on to our gorgeous couple, Maria & Ricardo.  Our time with them was truly so much fun that we forgot we were working…we were merely laughing, chatting and strolling the beautiful grounds of the Ringling Museum of Art with our friends (while we photographed them, of course).  We have just scratched the surface with these two beautiful people and we can’t wait to dig (or document) a little deeper on their wedding day this spring.   Maria & Ricardo, we can’t get enough of you two and we are so happy you chose us to be with you on your special day…enjoy!

Lexie & Matt…Palm Island Resort & Lakewood Ranch Country Club Wedding, Sarasota Wedding Photographer

This family definitely holds a special place in our hearts.  When we first met with Lexie’s mom Elizabeth we just knew that we wanted to capture Lexie & Matt’s wedding day.  The love and admiration that Elizabeth has for her children is truly special and we had such a wonderful time capturing that love and other wonderful memories from their day.  Lexie was stunning and classic and every bit of their wedding décor was a perfect match to that elegance.  Bold holiday reds and white’s with great cultural touches…it was beautiful!  And to capture Lexie getting ready at her childhood home on Palm Island was certainly a wedding day highlight both for us and her family.  A house filled with so many wonderful memories and now another wonderful memory to add to it.  Congratulations to Lexie & Matt – here’s to many, many years of making wonderful memories.

Mary Kate & Josh…The Resort at Longboat Key Club Wedding, Sarasota Florida Wedding Photographer, Destination Wedding Photographer

In the words of MK, “I am so thankful for all of our family and friends who took the time to travel from the west coast to the east coast to be a part of our day…everything was so much richer, more intimate and more special than I could have ever imagined…makes my heart so happy and so full.”  MK and Josh and all of their amazing family and friends are such a good example of a dream, destination wedding done right.  You could see and feel that every detail and every special moment of this wedding was brimming with love and exhilaration for MK & Josh and their future together.  And let me just say, MK is and was on her wedding day stunning, stunning, stunning…oh, and did I say STUNNING!!  Not just stunning on the outside either, she is truly a light in a dark room.  The moment you meet her you instantly feel that you have known her all your life…truly one of the happiest brides we have had the honor of working with.   Having the pleasure of documenting MK & Josh’s wedding day was definitely a highlight for us.  We too feel much richer and our hearts are happy, full and thankful having been with them on their special day.  Congratulations MK & Josh!!

Courtney & Josh…South Florida Museum Wedding, Bradenton Sarasota Wedding Photographer, Florida Wedding Photographer

There are some people in life that you truly enjoy making them laugh and smile even if it may be at your expense.  Making Courtney & Josh laugh and smile with our ridiculous antics, now that is just plain fun. These two are in love, happy and definitely don’t take themselves too seriously and it makes every photo session with them a blast.  We knew we were going to love documenting Courtney & Josh’s big day and as we often say, we would not have wanted to be anywhere else that day.  This wedding was sweet and beautiful and it really felt so warm – like a big Sunday dinner with the family (but way prettier :-)).  Courtney truly looked like a fairytale princess and Josh certainly stood up to the job of being her prince.  We adore these two (I know, we say that every time), but we really do!  Wishing these two many, many years of love, happiness and lots and lots of laughter.
