I feel so blessed to know Casey, Nathan, and their daughter.  They are caring, kind, and generous people and it has been truly special to be a part of their lives.  Jason first met them when he photographed their engagement session and then their wedding.  They’ve been part of our annual food drive and Christmas parties too!  It was an exciting surprise when Casey and Nathan set up a session before Nathan’s deployment and took pictures to announce that they were expecting!  Jason also photographed Casey’s maternity session, their little girl’s newborn session, a 6 month session with their daughter, and then her first birthday party.  Jason met them in the park for a 2 year session and their daughter is adorable.  Her little blond curls and bright blue eyes are so cute, but even sweeter is her smile whenever she is playing with her mommy and daddy.  Casey and Nathan let her explore the park and have fun playing which made the session lots of fun too.  We are honored and grateful to continue to be part of this amazing family’s lives, and we look forward to next time!

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!
