Photographing Alexandra and Charlie's big day was a fun affair. Pier 22 is a perfect scenic location by the water for a wedding in Bradenton.
Pier 22 is the location where Alexandra finalized getting ready for the wedding. I photographed Alexandra as she had her hair and makeup done. The air at Pier 22 was filled with excitement when Charlie arrived with the groomsmen.
Alexandra and Charlie tied the knot at Waterside Terrace and it was a emotional ceremony among family and friends as my wife played the harp. I get to listen to and cover some incredible stories of couples when photographing wedding ceremonies in the Tampa Bay area. Totally love what I do!
The couple spent the wedding reception mingling with their guests. All the guests were cheerful and you could feel the joyful atmosphere at the reception. So I waited for the perfect timing to photograph as many moments as I could.
It was a long time in the planning but Alexandra and Charlie pulled off a fantastic wedding and I felt buzzing by the time I left. Check out the slideshow with some of the photos from the wedding below.

I was overjoyed to photograph Katherine and Billy's wedding a few weeks ago. They were married at Manatee Village Historical Park in Bradenton which is in Manatee County, Florida. It was such a joy to photograph a wedding at Manatee Village Historical Park, I hope to come back soon.
I enjoyed capturing Katherine's story as preparations begun in the morning at the church bridal room. I got to photograph wonderful moments as the bride, mother of the bride, and maid of honor interacted during preparations. To develop a complete picture of the wedding, the groom's prep story must be told. So I also photographed Billy, his best man, and father of the bride, as they got ready nearby in a separate grooms room.
It was an honor for friends and family to witness Katherine and Billy's big day at the 1887 Old Meeting House Church. It's moments like this that make my job as a wedding photographer so rewarding.
Katherine and Billy shared a few moments with their guests before heading to the reception just outside the church at the courtyard. The guests were chatting happily, as they were delighted by the harp music played by my wife Kristen Elizabeth. As always, capturing the dynamics, moments and stories of the day is my main goal.
The season can really have an impact on a wedding and I find Spring weddings are some of my favorite. The day was bright and sunny, which lit up the courtyard nicely through the big oaks, and it helped make the photographs nice and bold.
Once the wedding meal was finished it was time for the speeches to begin so everybody got ready for some lovely words from the maid of honor and best man. The speeches are a happy part of the wedding and a joy to photograph as a wedding photographer.
You couldn't wish for a more perfect day for Katherine and Billy and I wish them all the best. Check out their highlight video with some of their favorite photographs of their day.
