It was lots of fun at the park when Jason met Kayla and her son for a Smash the Cake session! He had fun exploring nature and playing in the playground before squishing and smearing his cake. I think he had the most fun knocking the cake completely over! Happy first birthday to Kayla’s little boy!
Last summer Jason photographed Danielle and Russell’s engagement session. He was happy to see them again to celebrate their wedding day at The Florida Aquarium. Danielle’s hair and makeup were done by a stylist from Jess Waldrop Makeup Artists. Her hair looked beautiful pulled loosely to the side with soft curls. Thai Orchids and Leis was the florist and put together bouquets of white and blue flowers. Jason always enjoys working with Frank Lebano who did a great job as the DJ for the wedding! The wedding cake was made by Cakes by Pink and had a penguin cake topper.
Danielle and Russell had a First Look before the ceremony and their bride and groom pictures were out in the Wetlands Trail. The ceremony was in front of the Coral Reef tank and the reception was held there as well. The bride and groom had fun details to personalize their day. Guests were given pez dispensers with their seating assignments, there were Pop! figurines, and Jason thought the custom made figurine that looked like the bride and groom was awesome! The night ended with a sparkler depature, and then the newlyweds had their honeymoon in Siesta Key.
Congratulations to Danielle and Russell, and thank you for having Jason there to document your wedding story!
It is always a fun session when couples show off their personalities! Barby and Justin met Jason in Tampa for their engagement session. They made the session their own by showing off their interests in art, comics, and reading. I love that at the end of the session, they have an art piece to hang in their house next to their pictures to remember the day! Jason wants to go out and buy the Incredible Hulk wedding issue. How can he be in his green angry state but control his anger enough to tear up and be sentimental?
Barby and Justin are a great couple and I cannot wait to see what details they include to make their wedding reflect the two of them also! Jason will be joining them next month to celebrate the big day. Good luck to the to-be-weds as everything comes together!
Weddings at The Florida Aquarium are always terrific. It is a perfect Florida wedding without the heat and sun of the beach, and guests always love it there too! Lindsey and Nikolaj had their wedding at the Florida Aquarium and Jason was happy to join them to photograph the big day. Lindsey had her hair and makeup done by a stylist from Destiny and Light and she carried a bouquet made of shells and starfish. Pastor Chris Thomas from Sensational Ceremonies officiated the ceremony which took place in front of the 500,000 gallon tank in the coral reef exhibit. At the reception, the DJ was from Grant Hemond and A Slice of Heaven made the wedding cake.
It was wonderful being part of such a special day for Lindsey and Nikolaj. Thanks to the newlyweds for having us as part of the wedding team!
