Palma Ceia Country Club Wedding Tampa Fl – Kara and Tommy November | 02 | 2008

It was a long time since the engagement shoot and Kara looked so beautiful I didn’t even recognize her. We had to throw in some quick fashion shots during the day, I couldn’t help my self. Tommy was happy all day. Though I like everyone to be themselves I tried to get him to look a little nervous for one shot and it wasn’t working he kept smiling the whole time. If you think you see Sarah Palin (looking a little hotter than normal) in the slide show it’s just Kara’s mother. I was really impressed with the Palma Ceia Country Club in Tampa, the food was incredible, the staff extremely accomodating and the decor and grounds were great for pictures. >

Sand Key Beach Clearwater Engagement shoot David and Andrea October | 15 | 2008

The majority of shoots usually start slow with people warming up to the camera etc. Not these two, while I was still fiddleing with my camera they snapped into the session so easily you would think they teach seminars. They are so natural and comfortable with each other I think I will need extra memory cards for the wedding because there are going to be many amazing moments to capture. A storm came through just as I arrived on Sand Key Beach and around sunset the sky was a multitude of colors. The last image of the day (the last one below) feels like another country. >

Don Cesar Beach Wedding Natalya and Eric October | 12 | 2008

Just around fifteen guests for this elegant wedding at one of my favorite venues The Don Cesar. A light rain and a few select storm clouds seemed just to target the ceremony enough to actually feel nice and then reward us with the most amazing rainbow. No photoshop, it was an amazing day and evening. The relaxed energy of small intimate beach weddings are making them more and more popular. The Don is always just so classy. From the incredible food to the thoughful foot bath and towels at beachside for the guests and the endless photographic opportunities. Please enjoy the slide show, below a few of my favorites. >
