Lauren and Evan

The Four Seasons - Palm Beach, FL
Wednesday, July 16, 2014  |  Wedding
I had the opportunity to get to know Lauren and Evan more in person than I do so many of my clients. I flew up to NYC to shoot their engagement session in September and had such a great time getting to know them. Both Lauren and Evan are so kind, sincere and so in love. They are the kind of people when you meet you just want to get to know better. They have a light in their eyes and a sincerity that is so genuine.  
The wedding day arrived and it was much hotter than expected, even for a summer day. Lauren and the wedding coordinator made the decision to move everything inside. Sara Renee's team, the florist and the lighting crew transformed the ballroom into a beautiful indoor sanctuary. Wedding days are full of changes and things don't always go as planned. Even for the calmest of brides this can be stressful but Lauren didn't stop smiling and that light in her eye didn't fade. The day was lovely. So many beautiful emotions. Laughter, happy tears and lots of excitement.  
Days like this are a reminder that weddings are made up of so many players. It's easy to focus on the couple and forget that there are grandparents present and grandparents who are there in heart and spirit. Parents who are watching a much awaited ceremony of their children they love so much vow to spend a life together. Friends who continue to tear up the entire day because their love for their friend runs so deep. This wedding was a reminder of the importance of the celebration of two people who are loved by so many.  
And then the party. What a party! And what an amazing band! The event went on until well after midnight with a packed dance floor all night! Libodo Band brought down the house!

Elizabeth and Mike

The Flagler Museum - Palm Beach, FL
Monday, March 17, 2014  |  Wedding
I met Elizabeth and her mom last summer and was immediately taken by their relationship. They are kind and generous and obviously more than mother and daughter but also friends. This was a wedding I was so looking forward to. Not just because they had great plans for the details and the day but also because kind and warm people like Elizabeth and her mom are usually surrounded by the same type of people... and they were. I shot multiple events leading up to the wedding day and after each event I left smiling. Mike and his family were just as wonderful. A perfect combination! 
Elizabeth and Mike were married at the Royal Poinciana Chapel which is on the grounds of The Flagler Museum. Elizabeth arrived at the chapel with her father and mother in her father's classic Mercedes. After seeing each other and spending some time together the family came out to be photographed. I loved watching the chemistry in this incredible family and even though organizing a large group of people can be a lot of work it was a blast. Everyone was smiling and excited to be a part of the event. After the ceremony the reception became a party when Marcia Mitchell and her band kicked off. Hours of dancing finally ended at midnight when Mike and Elizabeth exited to streamers and a classic Bentley.  
An absolutely perfect day and a perfect team! I had the pleasure of working with Ray and Jessica Roman. It's always a pleasure working with them and I'm constantly amazed at our ability to see the perfect shot and angle at the same time. Claudia with the Wedding Library hit it out of the park putting together this memorable event.  
Elizabeth and Mike, it was an honor. This is just a tiny glimpse into the full day. Enjoy!

Adam and Tom

Little Palm Island
Sunday, March 9, 2014  |  Wedding
Adam and Tom were married on Little Palm Island at sunset. They invited 31 of their closest friends to celebrate. The day was relaxing and perfect and a documentary photographers dream. I spent the first few hours just photographing everyone around the pool and beach. Then everyone went their separate ways to get ready for the main event. Adam, Tom, their family and friends were a blast. Julie Shreck with Simply You Weddings did her typical flawless job on the coordination and decor of the day. And true to it's reputation Little Palm Island Resort & Spa is an experience you have to live to believe.

2013 Year in Review

Monday, February 24, 2014  |  Wedding
2013 has come and gone. It's really hard to believe I am wrapping up another year in business and as I look back at these images I realize how absolutely thrilled I am to do something I love so much and call it a job! Our boys are growing from babies to toddlers and starting to show glimpses of losing that toddler look and turn into little boys! That makes me sad and excited! We were so thrilled in November to have another baby which means we now have 3 boys! Shortly after he was born he joined me in traveling to two destination weddings in the Florida Keys.  
This was a great year for growth and focus. I realized more this year that what continuously draws me to photography, especially weddings, are the emotions around me on those very special days. My desire to grow more and more as a documentary photographer is stronger than ever. My goal for this next year is to continue to learn the art of seeing the moment and play as little part in creating that moment as possible. I have been so blessed with clients who understand that and I'm so looking forward to this next year.  
And it wouldn't be a proper recap of the year without introducing to this beautiful baby boy. Benjamin Ryan. He was born on November 1st and shortly after his birth he was introduced to his two older brothers. We love him so much!
