Between scouting, and sneak peeks I feel like I’ve already written so much about Amanda & Robin’s Pi Day wedding. It’s been a crazy start to wedding season and It’s finally about time I post the wedding day images from last month’s awesome Key Largo Hilton destination wedding in the Florida Keys. There is so much I could say about these two, Amanda & Robin are both such incredibly sweet people and their love is so beautiful. I love that getting married on Pi Day was personal to them, being math/science geeks, and Robin gave a sweet speech at exactly 9:26pm. (Pi would be 3.1415926….) We loved spending the day with these two and getting to know their awesome bridal party especially. As we hoped, the weather on the wedding day was gorgeous and this venue has no limits. The Hilton Key Largo is definitely one of the most beautiful places we have ever photographed, their ceremony site is secluded and romantic and there are literally a million portrait spots! Being with Amanda & Robin for 9 hours we were able to not rush and even shoot a roll of film that I will share soon!
Yesterday we captured Rachel & Andy’s Grand Plaza hotel wedding, it was an absolutely gorgeous day and I’m excited to share a few details from their event!
We seriously love our couples so much. What do you do if you want some fun engagement photos but a walk on the beach or picnic in the park just isn’t your style? When I was planning with Jessica & Chris, I asked what they would typically do on a day off or date and the response was “attending a festival, maybe a bar downtown or dinner out”. These two are so laid back and always up for a good time so we chose Green Bench Brewing for their engagement session in downtown St. Pete. Green Bench Brewing Company has a really fun atmosphere and perfect place for a date or to meet friends, and it’s family friendly too with tons of games. It’s also a great place to get to know your clients over a beer (and cider!), which we started out with before picture taking :) It’s really crazy how perfectly we meshed with Jessica & Chris right away, like old friends, and we laughed at many great quotes from the evening including “that was my face on your face” and the occasional “that’s what she said”. Meet Jessica & Chris!
They look like an awesome couple, right? Can’t wait for their wedding this October up in Ocala!
Finally coming up for air over here after a few weeks of events, lots of editing, an impromptu trip to the East Coast for a Jimmy Buffett concert and of course each of us was sick with fevers and chills for a few days this past week- glad to be back in the office today. I’m working on the full blog post for Amanda & Robin’s Keys wedding but I wanted to go ahead and share these amazing Postcard Inn Wedding day details from Kristen & Dave 2 weeks ago, the full post will be coming next week. Until then here are just a few of the bright and colorful details- including succulents, a ribbon ceremony backdrop, corn hole at cocktail hour and silver bridesmaids dresses.
What perfect timing for Kristen & Dave’s engagement session to be published on Floridian Weddings & Social today! As soon as we shot this engagement session I knew I’d be submitting it to Laura & Desiree. Kristen & Dave wanted something that was “so Florida” and I think we delivered. In the interview, Kristen talks about the engagement session process with us which I think is so priceless if you have one coming up with us. She also said some super sweet things. Definitely go check out the feature! I absolutely love this quote featured with their story:
“We loved our engagement session, and our photographers. Caroline & Evan are an amazing team to work with.I am so glad to have found them to document our story.” -Kristen
Happy Wedding Day to Kristen & Dave! We are heading over to our home away from home, The Postcard Inn, very shortly. I wanted to share a few frames taken on medium format on my Rolleicord. Shot on Tmax 400 film stock and processed by The Find Lab.
Here’s another kick-ass review we got this week from Nikki & Nick! Here’s what Nikki had to say:
“Where do we even begin?! Caroline and Evan were absolutely amazing! They were the first vendor we booked, and I would choose them all over again! Caroline and Evan made us feel comfortable from the beginning – like we were friends, and not just “some other client.” They truly cared about us as a couple and how our big day turned out.Caroline and Evan are not just outstanding photographers, but outstanding people as well.
Before I was even engaged, I have always known that photography was the #1 thing on my list when it came to my wedding. If done well, it tells the story of your day, and these photos are what bring your memories to life everyday for the rest of your life.
Caroline and Evan quickly addressed any concerns we had as the big day drew near, and boy did they deliver. My husband and I are over the moon excited about our photos. No matter how many times I look at them, it’s like looking at them for the first time. And I have not received anything but rave reviews from my guests, and friends about Caroline and Evan as well. It makes us thrilled to know that we will have these beautiful images from our perfect wedding day captured forever, and they truly could not be better!
p.s. One of the best things about Caroline and Evan is how quick they are! They had a sneak peek posted on Facebook the next morning, and all of the edited photos within a couple of weeks. (They even put an iPad of some edited photos on the cake table at the reception!) SO exciting! And they’re so much fun too! :) I can’t say enough good things about these two!”

Thank you for the kind words, we are so happy you look at your photos so often :) I can’t wait until your album is finished!
Well first we got an awesome card in the mail from Katy & Geoff but to top it off Geoff wrote us an incredibly sweet and humbling review that I want to share….
“Besides the memories, Katy and I knew our wedding photos were the one lasting piece we could take away from our big day. We set out to find the best wedding photographer in the Tampa/St. Pete area, and that we did.
From the start, we found Caroline and Evan to be incredibly professional, responsive, and flexible. They were easy to reach by phone or email and went over the top to make sure our wedding photos were the least of our worries on our wedding day. Going into our engagement shots we were kind of nervous to be awkwardly posing in public. However, Caroline and Evan’s talents and personalities made the process extremely comfortable. Not long after starting we were having fun and by the end of the session we felt like naturals. It was readily apparent that having a married couple do our photos was a huge asset. You can easily see that C&E have developed a strong collaboration with each other to make sure neither of them misses the chance for one of those ‘Wow’ photos. They have a great ability to connect personally with their client- by the end of our engagement session it was if we were all just good friends taking a beach day to catch-up with each other!
I think most importantly, you can tell C&E have a true passion for photography and the product and service they provide. Occasionally during our shoots Caroline or Evan would check their camera for a recent shot and get excited over it, which in turn made us really excited. Having the confidence that their talents are going to produce an amazing product gives you one less thing to worry about on your wedding day. We couldn’t have been happier with both our engagement sesh and wedding day photos. Their attention to detail and ability to seemingly be everywhere at once as to never miss a special moment was awesome.
We can’t say enough good things about Caroline and Evan Photography. We did our research prior to booking them, and I honestly don’t think we could have gone with a better photographer.”

Wow you guys, thank you for trusting us and making us feel like total rockstars :) I don’t even think a review I wrote for myself would be this amazing, you guys are the best!
I feel like I have a million little things to blog while also being caught up on blogging at the same time, craziness! I wanted to go ahead and get this beauty up though because I’ll be sharing Amanda & Robin’s full Pi Day wedding soon. I juts love these orange and blue wedding details, especially the bouquets which smelled amazing. Take me back to The Florida Keys!
