Photography Workshop

Summer Gardens -Styled Wedding | Orlando Wedding Photographer

The inspiration for our "Summer Gardens" styled shoot was an amazing collaboration between myself and my dear friend, Jess. We work exclusively together when photographing weddings and wanted to create an inspiring evening of organic beauty & love. 

It was a hot summery cloudy evening {not exactly what we had planned for our sunset shoot, but hey it wasn't raining}! To our surprise we should have worn knee high rain boots, the field had turned into a swamp. And might I add, the mosquitos were HUGE, the largest I have ever seen!!! Okay, now that you know the ugly behind our shoot, let's talk about the good: our amazing couple & beautiful details.

The love between this couple was just magical with cute little whispers and sweet kisses. What was so special about this evening was they were going to be married in less than two months. So this was a fun little "preview" of their actual day, which Jess would capture in an intimate venue located outside of Winter Springs.

Jars, jars and more jars: can proudly say they all came from my personal collection. Yes, I may have a problem; I keep trying to fill them with office supplies in hopes that I don't have an excess of empty jars, sitting around. So if you need to borrow a few for your wedding, I would be happy to share.

My favorite detail was the cake, absolutely in love with the ruffle style cake. If  we ever do a vow renewal, that would be my first choice. Just love the organized "mess" that the ruffles create on the cake, beautiful symbolism of the ups and downs of love. 

Hope you enjoy the day as much as we did! Can't wait to start planning for the workshop styled shoot.
