We met Jennifer and Felix at a bridal show a while back

They were having their wedding at the florida aquarium in tampa. I said that would be a pretty cool place for a wedding. Now the conditions there are not kind to photographers. Basically shooting in a cave…w/ fish around you. But I assured them I was experienced and equiped to handle it. They loved the engagement photos we took of them at the aquarium and were excited for the wedding. Along the way, they added some penquins and a hawk…and a horse and carriage. It was a wonderful and fun event. We could tell that their friends and family really enjoyed themselves. The romantic images with Jennifer and Felix were done w/ special low light lenses and just a small video light. I enjoy being creative and having fun, but we didn’t want to keep everyone waiting for the reception. So We worked fast and w/ a purpose. Some of the very nice wedding professionals we worked w/ are Grant Hemond ent. Ashley Valentine at the Aquarium, Linda from a victorian bride. Not to mention the cupcakes from Joey @ frostings etc.

Here are some images that I love. Congrats Jennifer and Felix!

I photographed Sakeena and Kevin at the beautiful Hollis Gardens in Lakeland. Great weather and we had fun getting to know each other more. Their wedding will be at the Ala Carte Pavillion next year. I wanted to mainly photograph them interacting with each other. That is the most natural way to do this. Then when it got dark, we went where there were some night lights and shot some more. Their line of work (medical field) brought them together, and they are quite excited for their wedding day! Which always makes me happy.

Here are a few images. Congrats Sakeena and Kevin!
