This couple just makes me smile, smile, smile! Jessica and Isaac had a vintage themed wedding complete with a bouquet of delicate dried flowers finished with a golden dragonfly charm. Their personalities really sparkled when we were able to sneak away for their portraits as the sun set over the beautiful hills of central Florida. A few dragonflies, very likely wearing golden wings, danced around us while we found the perfect spots for photographs. I just loved the sunlight that day – it was gorgeous and really brought out their true and shining love for each other. But Jessica and Isaac’s smiles were really responsible for lighting up the countryside. On a day so very important to them, I was honored to be the photographer who captured those memories.
I am so excited for this couple! For one, they are just the sweetest, so happily in love, and of course so excited for their bundles of joy to arrive. Yes, I said bundles. I haven’t had the opportunity to photograph newborn twins before but now the time has arrived: a boy and a girl are on their way. Jennifer and Johnny are such a gorgeous pair of parents-to-be who are so excited to welcome their babies into the world. Our maternity session kept getting rained out because I always schedule before sunset to catch those beautiful beams of light. The rain has been relentless lately and the skies have been cloudy and dark during what should be my magic hour. After watching a weather map last Sunday nearly all day, I decided that we should just go for it. Storm clouds were passing and there was a pocket of cloud-free sky coming our way. We went ahead and met at one of my favorite spots since I knew it wouldn’t be raining there. The sun was out for us only for a little while, but we came away with some really beautiful shots anyway! Sometimes the clouds are a welcome change in photography, they make for some very unique backgrounds!
It is a joy to photograph a family that is so full of laughter and smiles! Despite the rainy day we had, this group truly made my job easy. Raindrops during our session did not bring down their mood at all. We all kept laughing, posing, even jumping, until they had to run off to their big family dinner that night. When a group of family members doesn’t get together often, it is very special to be the person who captures their vacation memories. Hope to see you all again in the near future for your next Orlando vacation!
First, can I just say that Mandy has the most magical and bewitching eyes ever? Gorgeous! I swear they were the colors of the blue-green springs where we met for photos. So I can’t wait to take more beautiful portraits at her upcoming wedding this October. And David (her soon-to-be husband) looks a lot like one of my favorite actors, Edward Norton. Or actually, Edward Norton looks like him. Because David is an amazing guy who is up for anything at a photoshoot, even swimming around in water that could possibly have an alligator lurking around. And David’s not even acting. Take that, Edward!
Mandy and David are truly like peanut butter and jelly, or peas and carrots. They laugh with each other so comfortably and look at each with the most genuine smiles, as if their eyes are doing the talking. It was a joy to photograph them and I think we had a lot of fun. And we captured beautiful memories for a lifetime.
