Life goes by

These photos are a perfect example of how fast time flies. The top photo was taken when Amanda was 9 month pregnant and the bottom is Owen now at 8 months.

“Life goes by in a blink of an eye.”

Happy Friday!

Miami Wedding Photographer | Maria + Louis

I’m a little behind on blogging my weddings. Ok, I lie, I’m about 25 weddings behind. I decided I’m going to choose a random wedding a week to feature.

This day was a long time coming for Maria and Luis. If I remember correctly, at the time of their wedding they had been together for about 10 years. Maria and Luis were wed at the beautiful Miami Beach Botanical Gardens on January 5, 2013. They chose an outside ceremony (my favorite!) on property, dinner inside the banquet room, and dancing outside on the lawn. I always enjoy shooting at MBBG because every wedding looks completely different. The property is so large that your options are endless. Another bonus is that you are located in South Beach, but you would never know it. All the lush plants keep you hidden within the city.

Maria and I have very similar styles. I love her simple, timeless gown, and talk about the perfect “something blue”! Wow! Those are genuine sapphire earrings-love!

Up until a few days before the wedding, Maria had no desire to have a first look. I finally convinced her that a January evening wedding wouldn’t allow her to get those beautiful sunlit photos she wanted.  Maria had no regrets and was ultimately glad she chose to do the first look. She said it really calmed her down seeing Luis before the ceremony.

Another reason I love MBBG: the beautiful flowers!

You would never guess that the ceremony took place in the city. Picturesque.

Hello World! | West Virginia Wedding Photographer

 I decided last year it was time I stop putting off the inevitable… getting in front of the camera.  I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but I’m scared to death to get in front of the camera. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I’m a typical girl and I tend  to pick myself a part. For example, don’t you love my head tilt in all the photos   ; )

The very talented Sarah Elaine made the entire process fun! And I’m super happy with the outcome. Here are some of my favorites.

Rebecca Bishop - I feel you girl I dont like my picture being taken either… I hate my smile, my dark circles, my teeth and I could go on and on.. but anytime you have taken pics of me and my children it has been a great experience and the pics turned out beautiful you are an amazing photographer… and these pics that Sarah took of you are absolutely beautiful, nothing to pick apart!!!
