Tegan and Daniel had one of my favorite engagement sessions with Jason!  Their fun, creative style made for an amazing wedding too!  It was wonderful news to hear that they were expecting, and Jason was able to see them again to photograph Tegan’s maternity session.  They lived out of state when their son was born and we couldn’t wait for them to return to Florida so we could meet him!  Jason had a session with their family again last Christmas and their son was adorable.  He was just as cute now when Tegan and Daniel brought him for his 1 year session!  They started at the park and then came to the studio to smash a cake.  They are a terrific family and we are so happy that they have stayed in touch.  We look forward to many more great memories ahead!

Jessica and Caleb celebrated the start of their marriage with a beautiful wedding at the Straz Center.  Their day was filled with Hollywood glitz and glam!  The couple was married by Pastor Paul Wirth from Relevant Church and the team of vendors included Carrollwood Florist, Michele Renee Hair and Makeup, Alessi Bakery, and Breezin’ Entertainment.

The wedding colors were red and white.  Crystals were used in both the ceremony and reception decor and they gave the wedding a look of elegance.  The ring bearer was so cute with his Secret Service style earpiece and the safe he carried to hold the rings!  Guest favors were chocolate award trophies from Once Upon a Chocolate and each table was named after a different award.

Jessica and Caleb did a terrific job in putting the details together to create a gorgeous, fun wedding day!  Congratulations to the newlyweds, and thanks for having Jason there on such a special day!

Meghan and Eric are about to celebrate their eight year anniversary!  Jason was with them on their wedding day as they started their lives together and looked forward to their wonderful future ahead.  They lived in NYC at that time and Jason was able to see them again during one of his visits there.  Soon they started a family and when they came to visit Florida Jason was happy to meet their little girl and photograph her baptism and then her first birthday session.  She became a big sister last summer and when their family came to town for little brother’s baptism, Jason loved being there to capture those memories too!  He is now one and such a happy little guy.  He came over for his 1 year session and the cake smashing was so funny!  He went back and forth between laughing and crying as he squished and smooshed the frosting.  We are blessed to know this amazing family!  They are incredible people and we look forward to being part of more special memories for them in the future.  Happy first birthday to Meghan and Eric’s son!

Congratulations to Delma, Luis, and their family!  The bride and groom had their wedding at the Grand Plaza, with a ceremony on the beach and the reception following in the Imperial Ballroom.  They came from out of state to have their Florida beach wedding and were rewarded with a beautiful sunset of an orange and pale pink sky.

Delma had her hair and makeup done by a stylist from the Michele Renee Hair and Makeup Group.  I absolutely love the hair accessory she wore!  It was the perfect bling to go with the beaded bridal sash around the waist of her gown.  Delma’s gown looked amazing on her too!  She had a sweetheart neckline with cap sleeves and a chapel length train.

Purple and blue with silver accents were the wedding colors and the ceremony arch was decorated with tulle and pomander balls in those colors.  The reception decor also used the wedding colors, with purple and blue napkins, table runners, and chair bows, and silver place settings.  A fun kids’ table was set up with a candy centerpiece and purple and blue containers holding coloring books, stickers, and other fun toys.

Expert Productions was the DJ for the night and guests had a fun time on the dance floor and at the photo booth.  Delma and Luis have a terrific family and Jason enjoyed celebrating this special day with them.  Congratulations to the newlyweds, and thanks for having us share in your wedding day!

Whenever I post pictures of Sarah and Brian’s family, I am just overcome with gratitude.  What a blessing to have people like them who support us and our family business by trusting us with the most precious times of their lives through the years.  Jason first photographed Sarah and Brian when they were an engaged couple planning the start of their lives together.  It has been eight years since Jason joined them on their wedding day and celebrated as they became husband and wife!  Since then, we are so happy to have been part of:

A newborn session when they welcomed their daughter into the world

Their daughter’s 3 month session

6 month session where she was an adorable little pumpkin

9 month session and her first Christmas

1 year session with a messy cake smashing

A Christmas family session wearing my most favorite Christmas attire – matching family PJs!

A newborn session when their son joined the family

His 1/2 birthday session

and now his 1 year session!  He was so smiley and happy!

Sarah and Brian and families like them are what keep Jason and I going in this business.  I can imagine one day photographing their daughter’s senior pictures and then her own wedding day!  A huge thank you to Sarah and Brian for the past 8 years of amazing memories.  Your family is beautiful and we are glad to know you!
