Best of 2017: Wedding Portraits

BLUSH PINK AND GOLD DESTINATION ST. PETE BEACH WEDDING

“Kelli and Jordan didn’t do a first look on their wedding day so the excitement and nerves were really built up before the ceremony. You could tell that this day meant so much not only for them, but their family. Kelli and Jordan decided to have a wedding right before sunset, which meant that their portraits were going to be right in the midst of golden hour. It was seriously amazing. The sunset we got that night was out of this world and the two of them soaked up each other just as I soaked up the majesticness of it all.” -Kéra Holzinger, Kéra Photography

Two, the handmade details of Kaitlin’s look, including her shoulder piece, which was simply stunning! My absolute favorite thing about these two though is the love they have for each other and the way it just shines through in every look, touch and laugh.” -Brandi Morris, Brandi Image Photography
