Photographing JamieClaire and Michael's intimate wedding was one of the highlights of this past holiday season. They were married at a private home in Seninole Heights, a picturesque historic neighborhood in Tampa. It was a dream come true to photograph an elopement wedding at such a beautiful historic home.
Photographing Hannah and Spencer's big day was such a delight for us! They chose to get married at the historic Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg, Florida. This was the first time I got the chance to visit Sunken Gardens as a wedding photographer, the grounds oozed with fresh inspiration for wedding photography - the perfect venue for a paradise garden wedding in St. Pete!
Kristen and I started the day photographing Hannah and Spencer at the Hyatt Place Downtown St. Pete. We got to photograph fantastic moments as the bridal parties interacted during preparations.
Lakeland Florida is probably one of our favorite small towns in the Tampa Bay Area. Not only did I spent most of my life living in Lakeland, but it's a town full of history, beauty, charm, and character. Although we no longer live in Lakeland, we still consider ourselves "lakelanders" :). Lakeland is the perfect town to get married at. There's tons of super cool wedding venues and a downtown that offers some of the best locations for engagement sessions. Here are our favorite top 5 best places to take engagement pictures in the Downtown Lakeland area:
Number 1 - The Loggia at Lake Mirror. This location is just SPECTACULAR and with the right lighting equipment you can have some EPIC images like the one below that we took for Carolina & Ryan.
Erin and Kris had a fantastic wedding recently. The wedding took place at The White Oak Cottage and at The Sparrow Barn in Lithia . I was excited to photograph another wedding at the The Sparrow Barn, when it comes to wedding ceremonies, they don't get much better than here. Being a wedding photographer in the Tampa Bay area is such an awesome job because I get to work with fantastic couples in amazing locations like this.
