Clearwater Beach Carlouel Yacht Club Wedding | Michelle and Chris June | 07 | 2013

Michelle and Chris’s wedding had everything from an adorable entertaining 5 year old flower girl who teased me all day about taking pictures of girls, to incredible parents enjoying every moment while still feeling too young to believe what was happening . Trolley rides from hotels to churches with photo stops around Clearwater beach,  it was a packed day ending with a fantastic reception at the Carlouel Yacht Club. A few favorites below and a slide show. Special thanks to the staff at the Carlouel, the Ace Factor band and Florals by Sharen’s

Salvador Dali Museum Wedding | Meaghen and Richie May | 02 | 2013

Meaghen and Richie were just as content to run away together and avoid a big wedding event. Worrying and fussing over such a production did not seem to reflect the depth of this couple who would rather focus on their new life together than being the center of attention.  Going the full event route they decided to have their somewhat un-traditional wedding at St. Petersburg’s Salvador Dali Museum. The unusual  ceremony location took place on the circular staircase that is the focal point of the interior. No wedding isle or typical layout from what most would expect, and for me as well as the guests there was an excitement in the air with an almost  stadium like atmosphere.  Outside the museum produced nothing short of  spectacular visuals for photography and the artsy surroundings for an elegant outdoor reception. Below are a few favorites and a slide show. Special thanks my second shooter Shem Parsons,  the entire staff at the Salvador Dali Museum, DJ Eric with Grand Hemond and Associates, officiant Tom Greene and florals by Delmas, the Flower Booth.

St. Petersburg engagement shoot | Elizabeth and Darin April | 24 | 2013

Elizabeth, Darin and I spent a couple of hours shooting engagement photos in downtown St. Petersburg FL as a warm up to their Vinoy Wedding in July.  They are a lot of fun to watch because very quickly they seem to forget I am there and just interact with each other in such a natural way, I can’t wait for this wedding.
