A laid-back, intimate beach wedding just reaffirmed to me that I love beach people. They are so easy going and know how to have a good time. I was deeply honored to photograph this wedding. Aside from the officiant, only family members were present at the wedding. Two families became one. What better way to get to know one family than to meet the entire family. This part of Atlantic beach has so much history for the bride. She grew up coming to this beach to visit her grandmother, her cousin got married here and her parents have lived here as well.
These photos were taken in the middle of a hot day. The family were troopers taken photos in the hot sun. It was a gorgeous beach wedding. The bride spent the night with her crew at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort. It’s a beautiful hotel and the perfect place to relax and enjoy oneself before the big day. Everyone looked stunning and the bride was glowing. Their children and nephews were a part of the big day- which made it extra special.
After the wedding, they were going to have a family barbecue and celebrate the following days at Disney World. What better way to celebrate than with the most important people in their lives.ClickClick Continue after the jump to see more photos from this beach ceremony.
This couple just celebrated their first anniversary and what better way than with an anniversary photo session. These were photographed at the Lubbock Arboretum. They brought a change of clothes. She showed me what she was wearing ahead of time so we were able to coordinate the scenery with their clothing a bit. I had them in the rose beds and poppies while she was wearing the red. I love how deliberately and carefully this couple chose their clothes and props. They looked perfect. They brought a chalkboard that said “I love you because you give me courage.” How true is that for couples. You marry someone who is going to make you better and give you confidence to do things. It was also so fun to take photos of a girl playing the guitar. She serenaded him! I loved watching them interact and be all lovey. We had a great time walking all around the arboretum and they were willing to pose for me as long as the sun was shining.
I am so glad anniversary sessions are becoming more popular. How special to have some nice photos of you and your spouse post marriage. I’ve told my husband we need to do an anniversary session. Let’s talk about how gorgeous this couple is. These photos were taken at Texas Tech. They chose this location because they are both employed by Texas Tech plus the campus is gorgeous. I thought the blazer on the guy was a great way to layer for him and keep the formal vibe. She of course looked absolutely stunning in her dress, beautiful gold sparkly shoes and earrings.They looked perfect. Plus, they were just so fun to talk to and hear their how we met story and dating. It’s always fun to see people’s eyes light up when they talk about their love story. She was always laughing and just so happy.They were such a pleasure to photography. Where would you like to have your anniversary session photographed?
