I was privileged to photograph Bethany and Lance's wedding a few weeks ago. The couple chose the Magnolia Building in Downtown Lakeland, right next to Hollis Gardens. The Magnolia Building is a fantastic location to celebrate their wedding, with so many options for stunning wedding photos and Downtown Lakeland as a backdrop, it's refreshing to come back to Magnolia Building for a wedding! Bethany and Lance are a lovely and blissful couple, I was very fortunate to photograph at their wedding in a gorgeous venue like Magnolia Building.
I always start the day by photographing the bride getting ready. Bethany began her preparations at her home. I really enjoy photographing bridal prep as it gives you a chance to get to know the bridal party a little better. The air at the AirBnB (pun intended haha) that Lance rented was filled with excitement as he prepared himself for the day.

I've had the opportunity to photograph Marjorie and Jamals big events like their maternity, extended family, and surprise engagement. Now my honor was to continue capturing their journey as they recently tied the knot at the beautiful The Wedding Retreat Venue in Plant City, Florida.
Their ceremony, officiated by my friend the amazing Sandy Stringfellow from Marry You I Do, was full of tears and emotions. The emotions carried on to the reception but quickly turned into a night full of fun between family and friends.
