Savannah + Ryan |Casa Feliz

 

Omg you guys!!  

We are SO excited to finally share our blog post about this amazing and sweet couple, Savannah and Ryan.  

We met them a couple of weeks ago for their engagement session.  We were so close to reschedule the session due to some unexpected circumstances including weather and yet God timed everything to be SO perfect, not only the skies cleared up and we had a beautiful sunset but we were able to meet this extraordinary couple as they get ready for their big day, their wedding.  

Remember how we always talk about and suggest to our clients to bring something dear to them, this always makes every session unique and even more special.  Well, Savannah & Ryan decided to bring their skateboards and OMG this was probably our favorite part of the entire session.  It was so original, super fun, and SO romantic at the same time, it truly showed their romantic story.

We can’t wait to capture their special day!

Anniversary Session at Casa Feliz, Winter Park FL

This was the first part to a two location anniversary session we did this past weekend.  This beautiful session took place at the Casa Feliz wedding venue located in Winter Park, FL.

 


The combination of colors, the blushes, whites, and the beautiful brick walls with  touches of Cinderella blue simply turned the entire session into a storybook.

 

Yesi was wearing this gorgeous long, flowing white and blush chiffon dress.  When it comes to choosing what to wear for your session, we always recommend plain pastel colors, specially blush and whites for our beautiful ladies.  Don't be afraid to pair with an accent necklace and ultimately add the unique touch of  your favorite flowers.

Looking dapper never goes out of style, so gentleman, don't be afraid to suit up!

Overall, this storybook session was simply a beautiful chapter in our clients love story.  Check out our session with this lovely couple at Kraft Azalea Garden, and the fun rose petal shots we took of them.  Casa Feliz never fails to impress our clients and their experience in this captivating historic site.

Until next time, cheers to love & marriage! 🥂

BRIANNA + LUKE BODEN~ WEDDING SNEAK PEEK!

This past Saturday we had the honor to photograph a very special friend of ours and our children, their former elementary school teacher Brianna. 

Brianna & Luke’s wedding took place at a beautiful beach in New Smyrna, FL.  We got to meet a very special little guy that seriously stole our hearts! Little Kaleb, Luke’s son! 

Going through their wedding photos, trying to choose the few for sneak peek has been so hard as they were all so lovely! Just like our bride Brianna who looked like a goddess with her beautiful white dress and her genuine smile!

If there is one thing that makes any photographer happy it is an enthusiastic couple… 

This was certainly the case with these two love birds, Brianna & Luke.  They were SO much fun to work with! 

The afternoon was perfect, the location beautiful and we cant wait to share the entire album. 

Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Boden!

Congratulations!! 🥂

Jon & Rachel Engagement Sneak peek

This past weekend we had the pleasure to meet Jon and Rachel for their engagement session in Winter Park.   

While we were looking for ideas in choosing their location for their session, Rachel mentioned how much they enjoyed walks around Park Avenue.  We knew at that moment that our goal was to capture the essence of their love story along with their sweet and fun personalities in a location that means so much to them.  

 

If you haven’t been to Park Avenue, located in Winter Park, we highly recommend it as it has lots of charm with so much to do in one location.  From restaurants to shopping and a beautiful park in-between the main strip and the train station filled with gorgeous  landscape. This location makes for a perfectly romantic date night! 

We took a stroll around all the little alleys as we captured their sweet moments!

Towards the end, it started sprinkling, now for those who know us, we LOVE it when it drizzles as it provides us with the opportunity to captured those romantic scenes with our clear umbrella.  So if you’re have your engagement session with us next, no worries if the day brings some rain, we literally got you covered! 

We are so happy for Jon and Rachel, as their big day gets nearer.  They are truly passionate about their goals and their dreams together.  We can’t wait to be there to capture their special day!

 

Cheers to this sweet and extraordinary couple!

A Sneak Peek to Amanda’s Bridal Shower

There is always something so magical about the anticipation of a big day like a wedding.  The bride preparing and counting the days until her big day.  While the bridesmaids and the mother of the bride are spending every moment with the bride, making her feel special and loved! 

 

 

 

In our most recent session, we got to watch all these BEAUTIFUL and fun ladies as they celebrated this GORGEOUS bride-to-be, Amanda!  Of three beautiful and sweet sisters, she’s the last one to tie the knot!

 

 

 

It was not only exciting to capture every moment with her lovely family & friends during her bridal shower but we felt so honored to capture that special moment for a proud parent like Nancy, mother of the bride! 

 

 

Preparing for a wedding can be so much fun and somehow quite overwhelming at times, but of course being around friends and family, sharing laughs, tears, and celebrating your special day can make all the difference in the world!  Even if that means getting soaked by a popped bottle of champagne,  it is moments like this that are worth looking back and reliving that excitement! 

 

 

Cheers to the beautiful Bride-to-be!!

Choosing What To Wear For Your Next Photo Session

Hello there!

Whether it is your engagement session or your family portrait session, ladies, you can NEVER be too dressed up for it!  Part of our style guide, which is a great gift all of our clients receive when they book a session with us, strongly suggests for our clients to not be afraid to dress up


You may wonder,  but how does walking in big heels and long dress with my fiancé or my husband dressed up in a suite look good in the middle of a field?  We absolutely understand, it does feel weird, but one thing we love telling our clients and that we learned from our photography instructors; feels weird, looks great!

That’s the key, this goes from a pose that we may coach you through during your session to what you choose to bring or dress like at your session, we promise you will look stunning in your photos.  So ladies, say yes to dress!


It’s not every time you get to use that beautiful gown or beautiful dress you purchased a few years ago for a special occasion and put it in the closet to never wear again.  Or maybe you just want to buy an extraordinary dress but don’t have a good excuse for it.  Well this is the perfect occasion, we just gave you one!!

Trust Us!

You will love looking back at those photos and remembering how stunning you looked in that dress!  Not only is it flattering for every woman but it also allows for more opportunities to create or recreate your beautiful story.

Gentlemen

Looking dapper never goes out of style!  This can be an entire suite or as simple as a dress shirt with your favorite fitted jeans.  One thing we strongly recommend is don’t be afraid to bring layers to throw on top, coats, vest, jackets, suspenders, etc. Get creative and remember that it may feel uncomfortable for a few minutes, but the amazing memories you will have will last you a lifetime.

Remember the most important thing; this is your moment and you deserve to feel special in EVERY way!
