Matt & Jenay’s wedding, in downtown Tampa, FL, couldn’t have gone smoother. The ladies were done with hair & makeup hours ahead of time. We had cool overcast skies, for beautiful lighting. Everyone had a smashing time. And these two got married!! Mission accomplished!My second shooter was Shelby of Shelby Glynn Photography, out of the Tampa area. She got shots of the guys getting ready while I was with the ladies. She was a gem! So glad we could work together! First look on Jenay’s bridal suite balcony, at the Aloft Hotel. It was such a great spot to shoot… private, and a beautiful view of the city!Next we headed to the The Rialto Theatre, where the ceremony & reception were held, for more portraits.It’s time to get married! Matt & Jenay had Instax cameras for guests to snap their own selfies and add to their guest book.A few more portraits after the ceremony…Thanks Shelby, for these rowdy groomsmen shots. 😉 Erica with The 7th Floor Plan, was the wedding coordinator for the day and she & her team hustled so hard to get this place looking amazing AND flipping the room from ceremony to reception in only 45 minutes!

I was the second shooter for Eric & Cayley’s wedding last month, for lead photographer Morgan Ruth Photorgraphy. So I spent the morning with the guys, while Morgan was with the ladies. (So you’ll see my photos below, of mostly groomsmen at the beginning.).
They had such a beautiful day, at multiple locations, ending up at Union 12 for their reception! And they’re SERIOUSLY just so sweet and mature! It was a pleasure spending the day with them! I’ve got A LOT of favorites! Take a look…Eric’s brother, and best man!Once we got to the church we did a few groomsmen portraits before the girls arrived. Eric & Cayley chose not to see each other before the ceremony. But they did have a blind prayer time together. So sweet!It’s go time!The bridal party took a trolley from the church to the reception! So we grabbed a few photos of them in the parking lot before the left.Once at Union 12, we had portrait time with the whole bridal party.Things get crazy after a trolley ride. 😉 I just love shooting with the groomsmen! They always have a lot of fun!!But MAN! These bridesmaids were like a group of models! So gorgeous, they sparkle! And Cayley chose all of their dresses, which I just L.O.V.E.D.!! Well done, girlfriend!I loved this photo of the parents together!Cayley’s sister/maid of honor is getting married soon too!Union 12, always killing it!!Eric & Cayley had a cigar roller at their reception! So legit!!And these are the most beautiful and hearty Bloody Mary’s I’ve ever seen!Bridal Party Entrances!A funny & tearful speech from Cayley’s dad!This was different….and so fun! They had 5 food trucks parked outside for their dinner options! Guests had a ticket and could choose whatever truck they wanted to get their dinner from! I love it!Morgan and I stole the bride & groom for about 10 minutes during sunset for a few more portraits….Back to the party!Congrats Cayley & Eric! You are precious! And I pray God blesses your union!
Emily & Brock were married on her parents property last Saturday. They’d been preparing the ceremony area for MONTHS, with planting, weeding, trimming, mowing, etc. So when forecast said RAIN-ALL-DAY, we were all a little disheartened, as it seemed we needed to switch to plan B, ceremony in the tent instead of the garden.
These two are laid back, and awesome. And when the rain let up a little right before the ceremony, Emily said “Let’s do it! Guests can stand!” (as the chairs had already been moved to the tent.) So we went for it! They got married in the sprinkling rain and it was PERFECT! They didn’t let a little weather interrupt what they were there for, to marry the love of their life.
I’m so happy that they got the wedding they’d envisioned….just a little damper than expected . 😉Emily is a crier, which is MY FAVORITE!!!! This impromptu prayer time had some tears flowing.
