Tracy and Andrew were married a couple weeks back in St Pete Beach. Tracy had made a photo book of their time together as her gift to Andrew. When he received it right before the wedding, he couldn’t believe it. It even had some of their engagement photos we shot for them a while back. Later at the reception they had a slide show playing. Many fun shots of them growing up.

We had planned a “revealing” or first meeting before the ceremony, so they could have more time for photos. We staged it at the Gulf side gazebo, it went VERY well. Lots of emotion during the day, from the revealing to the ceremony in the sand. There were many tears of joy. It was a perfect day and a wonderful event. At the reception, there was no shortage of photographers as everyone was wanting to get in the action.

Congrats Tracy and Andrew

DeNeal and I justĀ  celebrated a big wedding anniversary (30th)…yes, we WERE married at age 13 ;-)

We chose to go to the Smoky mountains and have a cabin up in the mountains. We found the hiking trails to be beautiful and the white water rafting was far better than I thought it would be. We saw a bear cub on one of the trails, but he was doing his own thing…which was fine with us. We hiked to several of the scenic waterfalls and of course we had our cameras w/ us. The Gatlinburg business area was full of great restaurants. Here are a few images for the trip.
