We had an incredible time back in December for the wedding of Amy and Chris. Town Manor on the Lake in Auburndale, was the chosen venue for the celebration. The lakeside scenic nature of this venue makes photographing at the Town Manor a delight. The bride and groom definitely picked the perfect place...especially because both Amy & Chris are avid lake lovers, which they made sure to add an exciting twist to the end of their wedding by leaving on a boat! Keep reading, you'll see :)
Chris could not hide his joy when he saw Amy walking down the aisle in her magnificent dress. The ceremony was a fantastic service amongst close family and friends. Amy and Chris interacted freely with the guest at the reception. The guests were chatting and dancing happily, as they enjoyed drinks of their choice.
When it was time to end the celebration at night, we hopped on a boat right on Town Manor's dock in Lake Juliana. We said good bye to the guests while the captain took us for a ride. At this time, we captured Amy & Chris enjoying the moment of their dreams celebrating their new journey on the boat. This was our second time taking pictures on a boat...we love it! So much fun!
Amy and Chris created a fantastic day and I'm so glad they invited us along to capture it. Thank you both for letting us be a part of this journey! Enjoy the slideshow above and some of the photos from their wedding below.

I was thrilled to photograph Cassandra and Gregory's recent wedding. They were married at their family's beautiful backyard in Lakeland. Their celebration continued at Lakeland's Haus 820. I always wanted to photograph at Haus 820 but never had the chance, until now! Yay! :)
Bridal Prep gives me an opportunity to get to know the bridal party a bit more and gives lots of opportunity for storytelling as Cassandra was having her hair and makeup finished. Our second photographer for that wedding, Victoria, popped in on Gregory while he and the groomsmen got ready at the Springhill Suites in Downtown Lakeland.
It was such an honor to photograph all those fantastic moments at the private home backyard. Ceremonies like this make my career as a wedding photographer in Tampa Bay a very enjoyable job. My wife Kristen was already booked for another wedding but our friend and talented harpist Rebecca Cosas delighted the audience with her beautiful harp.
Cassandra and Gregory shared a few moments with their guests before heading to the reception at Haus 820. On the way, we stopped by Lake Mirror in Downtown Lakeland for some additional photos featuring the city in the backdrop. At the reception, the atmosphere was full of fun surprises, emotional speeches, happiness, and joy. All the moments we photographed were worth a thousand words. It was truly a special day.
It was a long time in the planning but Cassandra and Gregory pulled off a fantastic wedding and I wish them heartfelt congratulations. Enjoy the slideshow above and some of the photos from their wedding below!

Taneha & James' wedding at The Sparrow Barn in Lithia was AMAZING! This was the first time we got the chance to visit The Sparrow Barn as a wedding photographer. It is always fun photographing magical moments in venues like this when working with great couples like Taneha and James. Taneha being a photographer herself, made sure we had plenty of time for photographs and WE LOVED THAT! That allowed us to be even more creative with the bride and groom portraits.
The ceremony was a fantastic service amongst close family and friends right outside the barn during sunset. Taneha and James spent the wedding reception mingling with their guests, dancing, and having a great time.
Seriously, it was such a joy to photograph Taneha and James' wedding!!! Thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day! Enjoy the video above and additional images below. Also thank you to Perfect Day Productions for rocking out the wedding planning!

Hunter's Green Country Club is a scenic location for a wedding in Tampa, Florida. I love my job as a wedding photographer, so I couldn't ask for better opportunities than photographing fantastic couples like Carolina and Ryan and working at fantastic venues like Hunter's Green Country Club.
Carolina was getting ready at the bride's suite while Ryan was at groom's suite making himself look very dapper, donning his suit and applying the final touches. Except, he was missing his pants! Luckily, with less than 30 minutes to the ceremony, the tux company was able to deliver them right on time! No worries, we didn't tell the bride until AFTER the ceremony haha.
The ceremony took place amongst family and friends at outdoors and it was truly fantastic to see Carolina and Ryan cementing their partnership by exchanging rings and saying their vows.
We had some amazing clouds which as you can see from the photos makes for some fantastic pictures. We made sure to take advantage of the Hunter's Green Golf Club fantastic surroundings.
I wish Carolina & Ryan my heartfelt congratulations. Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding! Take a peek at the video above and some images of their wedding below. If you are looking for a wedding photographer in Tampa, contact us! We want to be a part of your wedding! :)
