Sarah and Ryan were married at Sacred Heart church in downtown Tampa. Then their reception was over in Ybor city at the Don Vicente Historic Hotel. Tammy from Special Moments put everything together.

There was some fun interaction from Sarah and her Mom and sisters while getting ready. I love the huge windows at the Don Vicente, as you know I enjoy using window light, it has a special quality to it. Both Ryan and Sarah were having a great time getting ready for the ceremony. In the slideshow video you will see the guys playing cards at the church waiting for everything to start. They just had their gallery posted and Sarah said some very nice things…”her friends were very jealous of her wedding photos”. The biggest surprise was when Ryan did a unique Prince impersonation to serenade Sarah on the dance floor. One of the best that I’ve seen. Here is their wedding day slideshow.

Congrats Sarah and Ryan

DeNeal and I got to spend a day with Sandra Pearce in Okeechobee at her studio. She is very well know for her painting photographs digitally. There are 2 ways to do this. One, you press a couple of buttons and the computer does the work(and it looks like it) and two, you are actually painting the image on your screen. Well not with paint, but you use brushes and choose styles. How you “paint” directly effects the image. As portrait photographers in Tampa, we want to be able to honor our craft by continually learning.

Payton turned one and DeNeal painted this one. The other image is an adorable one that I wanted to put up.
