Katherine & Daniel | The Thomas Center | Gainesville Wedding Photographers

A couple of weeks ago, we joined Katherine and Daniel to celebrate their wedding day. The got married at the Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Gainesville, Florida. It is the church that Daniel grew up in, so it held special meaning to them. It was more than just a church or venue to hold their ceremony. It was their family.

What an amazing couple and a beautiful wedding. As Gainesville wedding photographers, we get the opportunity to photograph at some amazing venues and churches around the Gainesville area. But this church stood out. Not only was it HUGE, it was very ornate. It provided an amazing opportunity to get some amazing images for Katherine and Daniel.

The reception took place at the Historic Thomas Center. If you have not been there, do yourself a favor and take a visit. You will not be disappointed. The Thomas Center provides for a variety of settings for your wedding images there. They have large oak trees, plenty of greenery, the old buildings... its a photographers paradise. Unfortunately, we didnt have a whole lot of time to do the creative portraits on the grounds of the Thomas Center, but as wedding photographers, we learn to work fast with the time given to us. So we were still able to create some AWESOME images for them on the grounds of the Thomas Center.

Thank you Katherine and Daniel for allowing us to be part of your day! Enjoy the images. :)

Lindi and Paul - Engagment Session - Central Florida Wedding Photographer

As wedding photographers, we typically get "stuck" shoot the same things that we typically shoot. This isnt necessarily a bad thing since people hire us to do what we are good at and they trust us to create awesome images for them. However, on occasion we like to break the mold and step outside the box to do something creative and fun. Enter Lindi and Paul...

Lindi and Paul recently had us shoot their engagement pictures at Fort Cooper State Park in Central Florida (Citrus County). We wanted to offer something a little different than the traditional portraits that are normally taken. This was to be more of a couples type session along the lines of a Calvin Klein advertisement. So it was a little bit more sexy/intimate than most other sessions that we photograph, but since we shoot engagement sessions all over Central Florida, we wanted to do something different and outside the box. However, we feel that this type of engagement session provides our clients with images that they cherish more than the traditional type sessions because it shows how into each other they are. We got the shot for mom, but the rest of the session was about them and their personal relationship can be seen in these images. Its amazing and we LOVE the images that we created. Thank you Lindi and Paul for being AWESOME!!

Victoria and Nick | Wedding at the Bayfront Marin House | St Augustine Wedding Photographer

We recently had the privelage of photographing Victoria and Nick's wedding in St Augustine Florida. They chose the Bayfront Marin House as the venue for their intimate wedding. Wedding photography to us is about capturing the emotion and memories from the wedding. You can tell how excited and in love Victoria and Nick are.

After the wedding was over, we took a brief walk around St Augustine and did some creative images with them. Part of the allure of St Augustine and the Bayfront Marin House is the old, colonial feel. We wanted to create images that gave that same intimate feel. Enjoy!

Samantha and Orlando | Bahamas Engagement Session | Central Florida Photographer

Did you know that we are able to travel to a location of your choice for your wedding or portraits? As a Central Florida wedding photographer, we shoot a lot of the same locations over and over because that is what our clients see and would like to do. Every once in awhile someone wants to go somewhere different that they havent seen before. So we are able to accommodate those requests and travel to the location of your choice... even if its in the Bahamas.

Meet Samantha and Orlando.. Samantha is one of the models that I shoot quite often. I photographed her for her senior portraits a few years ago and have used her several times since for various projects. About a year ago she and Orlando got engaged and she made it known that I would be shooting their wedding and engagement portraits.

The only issue that we had was that she wanted to do them somewhere a bit different and a place that we normally dont use for engagement portraits. So I had mentioned the possibility of going on a cruise to the Bahamas and doing their engagement session there. She LOVED the idea and booked it.

So off we went to an "exotic" location for their session. We had a blast walking around downtown Nassau for their engagement session. Here are some of their images.. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding next December. Who knows, there may even be a trip to Puerto Rico involved ;)... Stay tuned, but until then ENJOY!! :)

New Product Offering

We recently decided to offer metal prints for our clients to purchase. When researching a few different companies to find out who provided the best quality, we decided on Nations Photo Lab (http://www.nationsphotolab.com/prints.aspx) as the lab to supply us with our metal prints.

Once we placed the order, we received it very quickly. The packaging was great and protected the print from damage that can occur during the transit. Upon opening the box when it arrived, we were amazed at the colors and the vibrancy that shows on the metal prints. Its amazing. We ordered the gloss version, so it also had a sheen to it that made it pop even more. To our surprise, the print was sturdier than we had anticipated it to be. It definately make an impression and its something that we have added to our lineup and will continue to offer our clients going forward. Thank you Nations for an awesome product we can offer our clients.

Ashley | Maternity Portraits | Central Florida Photographer

We recently had the privilege of photographing Ashley's maternity session at our studio in Citrus County. We typically dont to a whole lot of studio type maternity sessions, so we ended up outside behind the studio. There is just something about that outdoor surroundings that add to the beauty of maternity portraits. Its something "different" and not traditional and if you follow our work, that is what we LOVE to photograph.

After the session, we decided that we wanted to do a few more outdoor portraits with her so we secured a local rustic location for a 2nd day of shooting. Ashley's maternity session was a blast to photograph. Its a privilege to be able to provide these types of images to our maternity clients. Thank you again Ashley for allowing us to capture this time for you.
