Tampa Garden Club Wedding | Ashley and Clint March | 08 | 2011

Ashley and Clint have an amazing wedding story to tell friends and future family members for a lifetime. The priest forgot to tell Clint to “Kiss the Bride”.  A couple of head turns, missed eye contact and before they knew it they were walking up the isle when the guests starting to call out “Kiss the Bride!”  Lucky for this officiant his monstrous mistake could not have happened on a more positive and happy couple.   Ashley’s vintage look and up beat personality set the tone for an amazing day. Below are some of my favorite images and the slide show with a recreated kiss. I would like to give inspirational credit on my tree image above to Erin and Ben Chrisman, two amazing visionary photographers who recently won an award for a similar image. Chrissy with Ideal Design Events put on a flawless event with some first rate vendors in the area. Florals by The Brides Bouquet, catering by Delectable’s, a beautiful cake by Chantilly Cakes, and a great live band, De Leon. All images can be seen here. The password is the bride’s maiden name all lowercase.

University of Tampa Engagement session – Ashley and Clint February | 03 | 2011

An engagement shoot is a great way for a photographer to get to know a couple before the wedding. With Ashley and Clint the less I interact with them better.  I just put them in some nice light until they forget I am there  and let them be themselves. I can’t wait until their wedding and plan on taking that same approach.University of Tampa Engagement weddding
