Hevin and Kyril

I was so excited when I received an email from Hevin a few months ago about her upcoming trip to the Disney World Contemporary Resort. Hevin is a wedding planner at Story Weddings and Events in the Sherwood Park and Edmonton area of Alberta, Canada. So we were bonding immediately through our conversations. I learned that she and her husband would be going on a special vacation to celebrate their anniversary and to also have a very sweet and intimate vow renewal. Being a photographer for a vow renewal is so special and I was honored to be a part of the moment! All of the details were beautiful, including the bouquet that Hevin made herself. Kyril wore a very handsome suit that paired perfectly with Hevin’s navy blue dress. And to start the day, Hevin had some well deserved pampering when her makeup was beautifully done by Catherine from Makeup by Cat. Hevin also made the morning complete with a small wedding cake by Ashley from Heavenly Sweet Creations. Having wedding cake for breakfast is probably one of the best things ever.

Truly, the best thing was the love between Hevin and Kyril. Throughout the entire session they were so very sweet with each other and really enjoyed their time together. And even though it started to rain that morning, we enjoyed every second of our photo session. Hevin and Kyril, I hope you enjoy these photos and the touching moments that were captured.

Harmon Family

Parents really have to trust their photographer. After all, they can’t see what kinds of faces their kids are making because they are on the other side of the camera with them. They are telling the kids to smile and trying their best to make sure they are doing a good job. But in the end it’s the photographer who has to make sure to get good photos of those wiggly children. It helps that I can snap those images quickly!

Kim and David

Kim and David are such a sweet couple who became husband and wife at Kraft Azalea Garden in Winter Park on October 1st, 2013. I was honored to be their wedding photographer here in Orlando. We were emailing with each other since early spring and before I knew it, it was October and time for their big day! Their lakeside ceremony was officiated by the always wonderful Reverend Glynn Ferguson of Sensational Ceremonies. He has such a natural connection with people and the ceremony was very beautiful and touching. (I’m a big fan of the group at Sensational Ceremonies, since they did my own wedding ceremony in 2009!)

All of the flowers, decorations and even ring pillow were designed and handmade by Kim herself. That was even more impressive considering they were here on a vacation from England. I loved the blue feathers in the boutonnieres and bouquets! Speaking of blue, their choice of such a royal and bold blue was perfectly coordinated among them all. The color really stood out at Kraft Azalea and looked gorgeous. Kim looked radiant in her dress, and it was a complete surprise to David that she even had a dress. Yes, they somehow managed to hide a wedding dress in their luggage during their entire trip! Kim’s daughter Samantha was so beautiful as well and I especially loved the lace cap sleeves on her dress. Samantha’s son Taylor was an adorable ring bearer and did his job just perfectly. Lastly, David’s mother Marion was a joy to talk to and I learned about their town which is always interesting for me. I can’t wait to travel back to the UK one day and love to hear any stories in the meantime.

Congratulations to you both and I am wishing you all the best! I hope to see you on a future vacation to Florida.
