Rachel and Brian met at a restaurant they work at, eventually they became engaged and last week they were married on the Starlite Princess in St Pete. DeNeal and I enjoyed photographing their wedding day. We had fun making great sunset photos, DeNeal was holding the light so we could make the photos more dramatic. Learning a little about Brian when his brother gave the toast. Brian was an early responder fire fighter after 911 in NYC. They loved their wedding slide show! and we were priviledged to be with them.
Congrats rachel and Brian!







I photographed a morning wedding at the Sheraton Sand Key beach. It was right after the tropical storm cleared. Most of the beach was washed away, but we were able to make our way to still get some amazing beach photos. The bride and groom, “Girlie” and Ray had one of the most emotional ceremonies I have been part of in quite a while. It was a very special time, and I made sure I didn’t miss a laugh or tear. I got to work with George from tampa keepsake video again. I always enjoy that. The DJ was DJ Arok Isinit. Who luckily had an umbrella to shade him from the sun. The outdoor reception on the grounds was very beautiful, not too hot if you were in the shade. “Girlie” and Ray had many frineds w/ professional camera gear there. I’m honored that they chose to hire me to capture their day. I get to photograph many weddings on the beach, all over the west coast of Florida. And I love it. Here are a few images from their beach wedding.














We photographed a beautiful St Pete beach wedding at the Sirata resort. Starlett and Andy had waited a long time to get married, so this was a very big wedding. They were both very happy with the photos we took of their wedding day. But they had the Sirata decorated so well, that it made our “job” much easier. A very emotional moment happened when her grandmother came in to see Starlett getting ready. Of course we were ready. The flowers were excellent, by 2birds events. Doug Decker from Grant Hemmond assoc was the DJ. It had been a long time since I worked with him. Make up and hair was by Irina at Elegant wedding hair. At the Sirata, Melanie was the event planner, and for a large event, everything went smoothly. Sometimes moving 250 to 300 people is like herding cats. Here are a few images from their wedding. Congrats Starlett and Andy!















Coleman and Jessica came to St Pete beach for their beach wedding. Then a “trash the dress” shoot right afterwards. Photographing beach weddings is always fun. We work up and down the west coast of Florida shooting weddings on the beach all year long. Which fits us just fine.
Here are a couple of images. Congrats guys!







This is our busy season as wedding photographers. We photograph many beach weddings in St Pete. Including destination weddings on the beach. This is Bettina and David’s wedding. An intimate family wedding, I even stayed for the after wedding BBQ. I was able to work with Nan from Ceremoniesbynan for the first time. She is an awesome Officiant. I also had fun getting to know Bettina’s parents and the rest of the families. Congratulations to Bettina and David.
Now, I travel up north to photograph a couple weddings then back home.







I had so much fun photographing Chiara and Jason’s engagement session, so I knew the wedding would be even better. Well then the storm came crashing in and moved the ceremony inside the Belleair Community Center. But the storm cleared in time for us to get some wonderful images on the water! The bridal party was enjoying themselves. Some of the girls came from Austrailia, they were childhood friends of Chiara’s. The toasts were very touching and gave a wonderful warm family feeling. Congrats to Chiara and Jason! looking forward to designing your story book.







Mandy and Greg were just married at the Feather sound country club. They had their ceremony on the lawn, it was beautiful. The celebration was very lively w/ the band playing everyones favorite songs. Heather from Rose gardens flowers had some very colorful flowers. It was great to work w/ my friend George from Tampa.keeksakevideo.com .There was a strong sense of family through out the evening, nobody wanted to leave the dance floor. Even Mandy sang with the band for a while. I’m sure veryone was exausted by the time they got back home. I know I was. Finally the Rolls Royce came to take them away. Congrats to Mandy and Greg, thank you for allowing DeNeal and Me to share your wedding day.

Crystal and Nantha’s second day was at the beautiful Hyatt Clearwater Beach Resort. Ashley was in charge of keeping everything on schedual and looking good. Grant Hemnond DJ’s were there (Rob). The florist was Rosegarden (Heather). Everything went well and looked beautiful. We managed to sneak out at sunset for a few awesome shots. But one of the highlights was Nantha’s Mom starting the Mother/Son dance traditionally, then had Rob switch everything into high gear for non stop dancing and fun. Didn’t see that one coming.
Congrats Crystal and Nantha! I cant wait to design your 2 story books.

Crystal and Nantha were having a 2 day wedding celebration a couple of weeks ago. The first day was the Hindu wedding ceremony at the Hindu Temple in Tampa. It was a very early start as their time was 7:30 in the morning. It was still dark at that time, but everyone seemed awake. I saw plenty of coffee cups everywhere. What a wonderful couple! We had their engagement session in down town St Pete and at the Pier. The ceremony was quite interesting, full of cymbolisms. I covered it as a photojournalist would, looking for key moments, trying not to be noticed. Super colorful and fun. The next day was the Christian ceremony at the Hyatt in Clear water beach. Congrats Crystal and Nantha!













Leighann and Chris were just married at the Trade Winds Resort. An amazing venue for a wedding. Lots of things for your guests to do. If you have a destination wedding, or are local, your family and friends would love to “get away” for a while. The event planner was Jennifer at the Trade Winds, Barb from Artistry designs group did the decor and flowers. George from JAM entertainment was the DJ. Make up by Karen at Beautiful you make up and hair. Their celebration was wonderful. It was a bit windy at the beach. But that makes for moving beach wedding photos. There was a touching tribute to Leighann’s father, who had passed away. We are sure he would have approved of the beautiful wedding.
Enjoy the photos and congrats to Leighann and Chris!. Who happened to email us “OMG Mitchell, that slide show is amazing. We can’t thank you enough!
