It is incredibly special when one of the couples whose wedding we are a part of later invites us to share in the important moments as they reach new milestones in their lives. We’ve loved being there for Laura and Brad’s memories! We knew they were a terrific couple after an awesome engagement session, and Jason was there to celebrate with them on their wedding day. They had their maternity session with Jason and then he met their son for his newborn session and then a six month session. He is about to turn one and it was fun to see him (and his parents) when they came over for a Smash the Cake session! Thank you so much to Laura and Brad for having us as part of the most meaningful times in your lives. We are honored and grateful!
Stephanie and Pedro were married at RiverLife Church in Bradenton and had their reception at Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club. Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club is a beautiful location and Jason loves photographing weddings there! Stephanie got ready there the morning of her wedding before taking a limo to the church. The wedding colors were purple and white and the purple uplighting at the church matched the theme! After the ceremony, the bride and groom took a few pictures together at the church before going to Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club for more pictures and the reception. Black Tie DJs played the music for the reception, and guests had fun watching the fish swimming in the centerpieces on each table. During the parent dances, a slideshow of childhood pictures played for family and friends to watch. It was a wonderful day for Stephanie, Pedro, and everyone who came to celebrate their wedding day! Congratulations to the newlyweds!
Jason first met Joy and Jeremy when he photographed their wedding. They were wonderful people and great parents, and it was exciting to know that their family would be growing again soon! Jason photographed a maternity session with Joy and then got to meet Joy and Jeremy’s son for his newborn session. He is now one year old and his parents brought him over for a cake smashing. He was so cute and smiley and Joy and Jeremy say he is always that happy! Though he did an awesome job smashing his cake, it was hilarious to see how yummy he thought it was! I think he ate more of the cake than any other baby Jason has photographed! I love his big smiles as he puts handfuls into his mouth. Happy first birthday!
Natasha and Christopher met Jason in Downtown St. Pete for their engagement session. After being rained out the evening before, they were brave enough to face the heat of Florida’s summer mid-afternoon sun. They are a wonderful couple and Jason is looking forward to joining them again for their wedding next year! Thanks Natasha and Christopher!
Jason has loved being part of the big moments in Natalie and Vicente’s lives. He has photographed their engagement session and then their wedding. It was wonderful photographing a newborn session when they welcomed their first daughter into the world, and then seeing her again when she turned one. Earlier this year their family grew and they had another baby girl! Now big sister is two and Jason met her at the beach for a session. Kids really grow and change so quickly and having pictures of them every year is really special! Natalie and Vicente’s daughter explored and played at Fort Desoto. I loved her serious expressions as she stared thoughtfully into the blue skies!
