We had a very colorful and fun engagement session with Ventura & Ethan during their Florida visit two weeks ago! These two are tying the knot in December at Isla Del Sol and we are so excited! It’s always so nice to finally put faces to the names of our couples when they are from out of town. Ventura & Ethan live in Brooklyn and we were connected to them by their fabulous planner, Ashely from Exquisite Events! We explored Davis Island and then took these two to Bayshore Blvd. to finish their session among the palm trees for a true Florida vibe. Here are some fun facts about them!
♥ They don’t like coffee. I cannot relate to this but they were such sports and still met up with us at a coffee shop.
♥ The area of Brooklyn where they live is right next to the rainbow bagel store! If you don’t know what this is you need to head over to Instagram and find the #carolineandevantravel feed!
Yay it’s tim to share Alex & Sam‘s wedding day! The color palette that Alex chose for her and Sam’s wedding was stunning for Spring! The two made it official a few weeks ago at The Davis Islands Garden Club in Tampa along with some of our favorite vendors and beautiful Spring weather. This wedding wrapped up a week of jet-setting for us as we returned from Jamaica the day before. For some crazy reason our flight from Montego Bay to Tampa was routed through Atlanta for a total of 13 hours of travel! It was so easy to sink back into work with these love birds and we were gifted golden light and thoughtful wedding details to capture throughout the day. I especially loved the chalkboard signage and the polaroid guests book table. Those little Instax mini cameras are the best (we own 2!) Taking the cake though were the florals and stationery. The watercolor details on the invitation perfectly matched Alex’s bouquet. The guests had a beautiful view of Tampa from the garden club and the room at Davis Islands Garden Club was painted in pinks and corals. This group was particularly fun on the dance floor!
Here are the awesome vendors!

Alex & Sam’s wedding at Davis Island Garden Club this past weekend was incredible. They had so many cute details like corkscrew name card holders, stunning gold plates, and even a polaroid station. It was such a fun way to create wedding memorabilia! Alex made such a beautiful bride in her lace detailed dress and holding her gorgeous bouquet filled with coral colored roses. We loved working with this adorable couple.

Cat & Aj’s beach themed wedding at the Postcard Inn this past Saturday was pure paradise. I loved all of the wooden details like the centerpieces, cake platter, and the adorable heart-shaped signage. The blue bottles as the centerpieces were so cute, and I adored the blush pink drapery on the alter. Cat’s dress was absolutely stunning, the lace detailing on the chest and collar was so beautiful. And, of course, a beach wedding wouldn’t be complete without some cool shades! The full wedding is coming soon.
I can’t even tell you how excited I am today to post these! So let you tell me about the time I saved the day ;) Devin & Sean were referred to me by a friend less than 4 weeks before their wedding day. Their first photographer canceled on them. Canceled! Can you even believe that? Luckily I was 1) available and 2) looking to start booking our intimate wedding collections with just me. A willing test subject! We ended up being a great fit for each other actually. Devin and Sean are fun and outgoing and have amazing friends. This was perfect for my very first wedding by myself, without Evan, and I had a blast (and totally killed it if you ask me). I am so excited for future solo weddings and elopements. Evan and Remy came with me on this trip and had some Dady-daughter time. They explored historic St. Augustine while I shot with Devin & Sean at The Lightner Museum and oh-my-gosh what a gorgeous wedding venue. The courtyard was incredible and a beautiful ceremony space. Devin & Sean said their vows on the bridge in the courtyard and then we shot around the property for portraits. What a fun bridal party too! Devin and Sean both got ready close by so it was easy for me to go back and forth between their locations for portraits with them. Then we walked own the street to A1A Brewery here the reception was held (right next to The White Room). On our walk we passed a couple who looked like they were on a first date and Devin and Sean told me about how they had their first date right there and also passed a bride and groom who were having their wedding day. How sweet?! One the way to A1A Brewery we stopped and took a photo where they had their first kiss. I have never felt more appreciated as a wedding photographer, these two were wonderful to work with.
Katie & Leroy’s wedding this past Saturday at Carlouel Yacht Club was beautiful. Their floral details were so pretty, mixing purples, reds and whites in all their arrangements. I loved the fun purple, blue and white ties Leroy and his groomsmen sported. Also, the wooden details complimented the colors so perfectly. The full wedding is coming soon!
Emily & Steven tied the knot at the Don Cesar this past weekend and enjoyed an amazing beach wedding with friends and family. The wooden, tree-like alter was stunning and so were the pink and white rose bouquets. Their cupcake wedding cake was so adorable and I loved the beach theme to it. Emily’s dress was absolutely gorgeous with a jeweled cinch at the waist. The full wedding gallery is coming soon!
Christina & Pablo’s wedding this past Saturday was a classic. The white hydrangeas with vines made gorgeous centerpieces. Their wedding cake was just beautiful – all white, with pearl details and white roses – sitting atop a stunning gold stand. The Museum of Fine Arts was the perfect venue for this elegant wedding. I can’t wait for you to see the full wedding!
If you follow along on Instagram, you know we were in St. Augustine at The Lightner Museum this weekend for a wedding. What you may not know is that it was a solo wedding with just me! As part of a new collection we are offering, I am now booking 2017 and 2018 intimate weddings and elopements that make it more possible for couples to have an incredible photographer at a lower cost than our large wedding collections. And the travel fees are much smaller since it’s just me! I’ll have a larger post all about that soon and feature Devin & Sean’s gorgeous wedding day. I absolutely loved their St. Augustine Lightner Museum wedding and I can’t wait to share images from our whole trip. I can’t wait to see where this new offering takes me.
Devin & Sean tied the knot in beautiful St. Augustine this past weekend. I just loved the intricate wedding cake stand and the white, classic and pretty cake itself. Red, pink and white roses made up the bouquets and centerpieces. The dark red bowties were a great detail as well.
