The day has finally come! Our Abstract Expressionist styled shoot at The Jepson Art Center, that we traveled to Savannah, GA for, has finally come out in print! Yesterday, The Celebration Society featured the shoot on their blog an today a beautiful stack of magazines arrive on our doorstep. I am so thrilled to have this Savannah shoot published in a magazine. Our vendor team was incredible, and this was an amazing trip as well. We hope to shoot many more weddings in Savannah in the future. I’ll be posting some shots of the magazine spread soon but until then you can check out the blog feature on The Celebration Society’s site.

Yes, it’s true. Evan and I did a lip sync battle with other local being professionals in honor of Marry Me Tampa Bay’s 5 year anniversary. People who have met me less than 10 years ago don’t believe that I have a huge fear of stage fright actually because I am so outgoing as a business owner. But believe me that I use to shake when giving speeches in school and even for my best friend at her wedding that time I was Matron of Honor. But being up on stage was kind of liberating and I had so much fun. I still felt like throwing up before hand, but, really, fun, I swear. Evan however is a different story. He thrives under attention. He was quite the actor as a film student once upon a time and definitely used to perform frequently at camps as a kid. He was not nervous at all. And he knows how much wedding professionals love gold and glitter so he threw confetti at the end of his performance. It was a BLAST!
Performances | Caroline: Stereo Hearts by Gym Class Heroes | Evan: Total Eclipse of The Heart & Footloose.
He loves Kevin Bacon so much you guys. It should be scary but I think its adorable.
We first met Alexandra & Sam over cupcakes and coffee and immediately loved them. Besides being super cute, they were really fun to hang out with and their engagement session was no different. We started at Ballast Point Park to get some more casual portraits and then switched outfits and headed to Bayshore Blvd for sunset.
♥ They’re getting married this March at David Island Garden Club.
♥ Alex & Sam recently bought their very first house together!
♥ That’s actually how Sam proposed, how adorable!
We just can’t wait to spend the whole day with these two! And seriously, how gorgeous is Alex’s smile? She is so photogenic.
Jessica & Chris’ Skyline Ranch wedding in Central Florida is published today on Every Last Detail. This is seriously still one of my favorite events we’ve ever been part of! Thrilled to see it feature on one of our favorite wedding blogs.
I telling you, it’s always when a couple close to us gets married that I get stuck with blogging. I am so thrilled that Teresa & Michelle are married now but I can’t help but be sad that their engagement is over because we see them less now! We’ve become so close to this family y’all, they are Caroline & Evan #goals for sure. Teresa taught our daughter how to swim and we’ll be forever thankful for Remy having that amazing skill thanks to “Miss T”. Even though Remy was constantly asking to ask Miss T to bring the kids over instead of go to swim lessons, lol. Those 3 beautiful girls on the right are her teenage daughters and each time we got together we enjoyed their goofiness and bright spirits.
With a same sex wedding, it’s not as intuitive of who Evan goes with and who I go with during getting ready time. We either have the couple choose or, with Teresa & Michelle, it made sense for me to be with Teresa since she had a lot more details. This included a gown fit for a Disney princess and Mickey earrings! (see if you can spot the hidden Mickey’s on her bouquet.) Both ladies looked absolutely gorgeous! They totally deserved the best day but of course we got a hurricane that weekend in October. Remember Hurricane Matthew? I was so stressed that whole week, worried that the storm would turn toward us but luckily it didn’t. However, crazy wind gusts did make the ceremony move from the beach to the ballroom and the reception from the roof of Hotel Zamora down to the pool deck. It was still fantastic and we got a beautiful sunset. You couldn’t put a damper on the day, even with 30mph winds, because these two were so happy to be saying “forever” to one another. They’re both so giving and they deserve all the happiness!
The last email that I just are with this wedding is Teresa had her ex husband give her away. It was so sweet and meaningful- they even did a dance together. I love seeing their friendship! Family is so important to Michelle & Teresa and their wedding really showed that.
I love their first look, they wanted to touch before turning around and it was too sweet!
I don’t usually share family formals images but this family cracks me up! It is so awesome that Teresa has a great relationship with her ex husband, and you can see why their girls have such great personalities.
Congrats you two- we need to get together soon!
I am soon behind on blogging, but good news is that means lots of beauty is coming soon the next few weeks before we kick off wedding season! First up, is this gorgeous engagement session with two high school sweethearts, Christina & Pablo. You guys, these two were so easy to shoot. Pablo proposed at Le Meridian so we started there in downtown Tampa and hit some favorite spots like the Tampa mural and then shot in an abandoned parking lot. These guys trusted us so much. “yeah just stand here next to this pile of garbage and be romantic…” but with that light, and a little of our magic, you’d never know that we were in such an un-romantic location. They rocked it! A few fun facts about these two:
♥ Christina & Pablo met in their freshman year of high school, nearly 14 years ago ♥ ♥ ♥
♥ Their dog has his own Instagram account. And he has like 3 times as many followers as we do.
♥ They are tying the knot next month at one of our favorite venues in St. Petersburg, The Museum of Fin Arts!
We seriously can’t wait. We just love when a couple feels like ol friend an we loved hanging out and cracking jokes these two just as much as we loved shooting them. Pablo talked about how easy the whole process was and that is exactly why we love ou
The holidays are coming to a close but I’m in a super sparkly mood with New Years Eve being tomorrow night, and not much is sparklier than New York City at Christmas time. I’m stoked to show off Lindsey & Michael’s engagement session today. It’s been at the top of our bucket list to shoot a session in Brooklyn and Manhattan and making it happen a few weeks ago put us in the clouds! Plus these too, are amazing. First off, have you seen a more perfect top bun?! Second, they brought (and shared) a flask of whiskey and still never complained about the cold- even when Lindsey took off her jacket to show of her adorable black tutu skirt. Here are a few more fun facts about these two:
♥ Lindsey & Michael have been together even longer than Evan and I- 18 years! They started dating at age 14 ♥ ♥ ♥
♥ Their first song together might have been by N’Sync- I mean it was 1998ish after all.
♥ Lindsey & Michael love New York City. They always dreamed of living in Manhattan one day. Each year they grew up always visiting Rockefeller Center on December 26th. Now that they live close by like they always dreamed, it’s of course where Michael proposed- during a freezing downpour of course- someone will make a movie about their romance one day.
We started their session at an extremely hipster coffee shop in Brooklyn and walked to The Brooklyn Bridge for the first part of the session (with Michael pointing out locations for Gotham along the way which Evan loved). The bridge was very cold. About 29 degrees plus lots of wind. We wore many layers. It was gorgeous still and these two are excellent cuddlers. Then we took the train to Midtown and proceeded to fight through the crowds at Rockefeller Center in December. We did manage to get amazing shots because when you are wearing a big sparkly on your finger, people make room for you and at some point a woman yells (awww they’re getting married) and people clapped, it was awesome. I pretended they were clapping for Evan and I. We ended with some killer night shots. If you’re interested in using Michael as a model you can contact his agent, Lindsey, directly ;)
Tiffany & Brad’s mountainside vineyard North Carolina wedding at Addison Farms vineyard was published on Every Last Detail last week. Here is a peek at the feature! We were so thrilled that it took all of a day to get this wedding accepted for publication!
We always love getting notes and positive reviews from our couples. Here’s a recent one from Melissa & Ryan who were married at the Tampa Garden Club in September.
“This couple is amazing! From our engagement shoot to our day of wedding photos, they were nothing short of perfection. They captured so many great details and moments of they day. They were very patient with us and made the overall process very fun and easy during such a busy and crazy day. We were are on a time crunch and they were able to squeeze in all the photos we wanted and then some! The pictures are gorgeous and since they do maternity shots too, I’m sure I will be using them in the future! To Caroline & Evan, you’re an amazing couple and even more amazing photographers, so glad we were able to have you with us on our special day!” Melissa & Ryan 9/4/2016
We are honored to be published on Marry Me Tampa Bay today with Erin & Steven’s gorgeous Cross Creek Ranch wedding. We loved working with these two and always get beautiful light when we shoot at Cross Creek Ranch. Plus Erin and Steven had some wonderful things to say about us, and we appreciate that so very much. Love you guys!
