South Florida wedding photography

One of our favorite South Florida wedding venues is the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. The unique surroundings, the opportunity for varied and natural portraits, and the modern, outdoor ceremony and reception locations are perfectly suited for our style of photography. Jackie + Sean chose to have their wedding ceremony and celebration at the Morikami after getting ready at Jackie’s childhood home and a nearby hotel. The day started off threatening and rainy, with sudden…

We’re back and blogging! So happy to be back in the office for a few minutes at a time, we’ve been running all over the country for the last few months. Thank you to all of our clients for your patience while we get your blog posts together, we know you want to share images with your friends, loved ones, and maybe those people from high school you didn’t really like but wouldn’t mind impressing…

A hot summer wedding in the Keys? Jenna + PJ managed to pull it off with elegance, keeping their guests cool with an indoor ceremony and reception at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo… while spending a bit of time with a cherry classic car outside for portraits. We were so happy to bear witness and document the range of emotions that flooded the entire day; from joyous laughter during the ceremony to family tears during…

As we’ve surely mentioned before, becoming friends with our clients is our normal routine. Not only does it make the wedding day more fun, it tends to make the images feel more intimate and connected when we’re already close with the people in them. Occasionally we’ll connect with a couple more strongly than we usually do, which is one of the best feelings in the world; this is how we feel about Sarah + Todd.…

We’ve been finding more and more that the couples we work with are straight-up awesome. Tiffany + Jonathan are a particularly shining example of this trend; sweet, funny, and delightfully considerate of each other and the people around them. Their lovely wedding started with a perfectly bright and hot Florida day, with views from their rooms at the Hilton of the beach and ocean glittering in the sun. They found ways to weave family and friends into every…

One of the things we love about client referrals is that sometimes we recognize a few people at a wedding. Even better? When a bride of ours from a couple of years ago refers her brother and future sister-in-law and we recognize half of the family at the entire event. This would lead to a very relaxed feeling to the day in general, but Mindy + Anthony’s wedding was even smoother than we’d expected. The perfect…

Tiffany + Jonathan are the kind of clients who make us feel like this is the easiest job in the world. We get together for their engagement session in Jupiter: they laugh, chat, run around, cuddle, play, jump, laugh some more… and they look so effortlessly awesome the entire time. (To say that we had a great afternoon with them would be an understatement.) We are so looking forward to their wedding later this spring! Check out…

Christine + Diego’s wedding day was bright and beautiful; one of those days that reminds you of why everyone loves living in South Florida (especially in the winter). Their wedding day was filled with personal touches: from the Miami University campus chapel for their ceremony to the care they took to include their families’ diverse customs and heritages, each part of the day felt personal and inspired. The cocktail hour and reception were held beneath the soaring trees…

The summer weather in South Florida is wildly unpredictable. Generally one can expect it to be hot [obviously], but we sometimes have days of relentless sunshine followed by sudden torrential downpours. Or hurricanes. (We don’t get “drizzle”. If it’s raining, you’ll notice; it’s typically blowing sideways.) When we photograph weddings in the summer in Florida we tend to go with the philosophy of, “Hey. You’ll say vows! And we’ll take photos. We’ll play the rest…

Our 4th of July holiday weekend kicked off with Mai-Vi + Paul’s intimate wedding in Boca Raton on July 3rd. We were blown away by the relaxed atmosphere of the small group of relatives and close friends, and felt immediately welcome. Mai-Vi started her day by going on a “fun run” with her girls (“just ten miles”– wow!), and then settled into her air conditioned suite at the Boca Raton Resort + Club to get ready.…

We love our clients, and we love their weddings; from the most intimate elopement to the craziest blowout party, each event signifies families and friends coming together to celebrate the union of a couple they love to pieces. Natalie + Tim’s elegant black tie ball was no exception. Every part of the day was filled with laughter and smiles, friends and family there to help and witness. We knew when we photographed this beautiful couple…

You may remember Denise + Horacio from their engagement session not long ago, featuring books and laughter and love. Not surprisingly, their wedding captured much of the same flavor, bringing together two vibrant and energetic families, a beautiful traditional church service, and an elegant lakeside reception at the Boca Raton Spanish River Public Library. We loved seeing the theme of books tied carefully throughout the day: from beautifully folded book art and stacks of books at…

Going into Alex + Jared’s Palm Beach destination wedding we knew that they were drawing people from all over the United States and beyond. Friends and family came from Boston, New Hampshire, California, and Alex’s grandparents flew from nearby (ha!) Romania. (They were a delight.) Some flew in for New Year’s Eve celebrations a few days before the big day, some flew in for the rehearsal, and some were delayed on their way back out…

Cheryl + Derek’s wedding was one of those days that we expected to go well. The weather was decent (hot, but that’s normal). The locations were gorgeous. The flowers, details, clothing… everything was set up for it to go as well as possible. We expected the day to go well; we were truly touched and amazed by how perfect it was. Having a very intimate wedding with only family and a few close friends makes…

You know you’ve found friends when your clients start quoting “The Hangover” to you in emails. Derek was a guest at Teresa + Brent’s wedding earlier this year, and was polite and friendly when he asked for our card. We had no idea this guy (and his awesome fiancée Cheryl) would be keeping us laughing for hours through our initial meeting! We’ve been looking forward to their engagement session all summer and can’t wait for…

Julissa + Rod wed before their closest family and friends at an intimate ceremony and reception in Palm Beach, at the Four Seasons Resort. Originally from Peru, Julissa’s friends and family traveled from destinations near and far, including a group of girls she has known since childhood who have all managed to stay in touch despite having scattered around the Americas in recent years. Seeing Rod’s face at their First Look was a high point…

We’re always so proud of Florida when the weather is perfect for couples who came from far away to get married here. Sunny weather, sparkling aqua water, a refreshing breeze… it’s like this so often I think we sometimes forget just how lovely it can be! The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is one of the few resorts along the Fort Lauderdale coast that’s actually right on the beach, and they take full advantage of their…

David + Lisa were married last weekend in a beautiful ceremony on the upstairs terrace at the Breakers’ Beach Club. Despite looming clouds and iffy weather, sunshine managed to break through for most of the afternoon and evening, giving a lovely golden glow to the day. David + Lisa were joined by their six children (can anyone say “Brady Bunch”??) as their wedding party, bringing an intimate and loving family feel to traditional wedding day…

As we mentioned in their engagement session, Teresa + Brent have been in love and together for a long time. The best part about a wedding like this is that rather than a celebration of two families coming together, it’s really one big family already! We loved how everyone knew each other, making the entire day one big party. Having the wedding at Teresa’s family’s home in Jupiter Farms made things even better; from the…

We love what we do. We honestly feel that we have the best job in the world; we meet great people and get to be creative during an incredibly beautiful and emotional time in their lives. Overall we tend to book clients who we’d be friends with, so we’re generally really happy campers! Then once in a while we get a couple like Nicole + Scott who make us remember just how lucky we are.…

We love it when our clients use South Florida as a destination for their wedding… reminds us of our own wedding in Vermont! All the planning from far away can be a challenge, but the end results are so worth it. Lisa + Mike are planning their South Florida wedding from New England but had to come down before the big day for their cake tasting (and a beachy engagement session with us). We loved…

There’s something to be said for waiting a long time before you get married. Teresa and Brent have been together longer than the Pogos have known each other, have a settled routine in their lives with their daughter, and go about their daily lives just… living. Maybe you’ve heard that after a few years romance and love can get put on the back burner, and maybe that’s true for some people. Teresa and Brent blew…

Christina + Ryan (click to see their engagement session at the Jupiter lighthouse earlier this year) were married on the first of December, which unlike much of the country was actually a beautifully warm and sunny day. They both got ready at Frenchman’s Reserve with their best guys and gals, chose to see each other privately for their First Look, then headed to Saint Patrick Catholic Church down the road for the ceremony. Christina was…

Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally our weekend to skip town and celebrate both of our birthdays by hiding out somewhere and eating non-traditional food (like pizza and gallons of coffee). When Bobby + Bianca first asked us about shooting their wedding the Saturday of that weekend, we hesitated— but only for an instant. Their warm, enthusiastic personalities absolutely captivated us, as did their beautiful love story. We are so happy to say that their wedding was…

We knew from the moment we met Melanie + Alex that they were going to have a fun wedding… and we probably should have guessed after shooting their engagement session that they were going to look amazing as bride and groom! After a really rainy week everyone was relieved to see the forecast for Saturday; sunny and dry. It was hot (this is Florida, after all), but a refreshing breeze kept the temperature at bay.…

After a relaxing day wandering Key West (and playing with the kitties at the Hemingway Home… see one of Em’s instagrams here) we met up with Cindy + Alan to visit some of their favorite parts of the town and take some portraits minus the crazy atmosphere of the wedding day. To beat the heat we had a snack at Kermit’s Key Lime Shoppe, where we discovered that chocolate covered key lime pie on a stick,…

We joined Cindy + Alan for their weekend of wedding celebrations in Key West. The weather was warm, but a refreshingly brisk breeze held a hint of fall, even in this beach setting. Cindy got ready at the Hyatt before their waterfront ceremony, where close friends and family gathered and Alan’s daughter and son served as maid of honor and best man. After portraits around the Hyatt property, everyone waved goodbye to Cindy + Alan…

When we first met Sam + Angel, they told us about their love story; how they started as friends, but became so much more. When we photographed their engagement session in May (click here to see) we loved that they recreated their fateful first date, finishing up at Lulu, the restaurant where they realized they had something special. During that time we were also able to check out their wedding venue, just steps away from…

Julie + Brian planned one of the most laid back, relaxing weddings we’ve been to… but how could it be anything but relaxing at a beautiful resort in the US Virgin Islands? We joined the happy couple and a small group of close family and friends for a weekend celebration of Julie + Brian’s love and marriage at the Sugar Bay Resort + Spa on St. Thomas. The weather looked threatening leading up to the…

Remember Lowery + Brian’s engagement session earlier this year? We’ve been looking forward to their wedding ever since! While we’re lucky enough to live in paradise, we love seeing our sparkling nook of South Florida through the eyes of our clients who travel so far to have their wedding here. Lowery has dreamed of having her wedding here for quite some time; the first time she visited her parents’ friends’ home in Jupiter Inlet Colony,…
