“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
“Matt and Jessica was were so comfortable with each other, and it made their portrait portion of the day so easy to capture. You could just see the love between the two of them. The lighting and weather made it all the more beautiful for their magical day!” -Kristen Marie, Kristen Marie Photography
“I loved Kaitlyn & Vaughn’s portraits for many reasons. One, the venue is absolutely spectacular and gave us so many incredible backdrops. 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
“I met Vanessa at a coffee shop downtown Tampa, she took some time off her lunch break to meet with me. She expressed how much she loved my work and already invested so much trust in me…it only made me want to work harder and give my bride more than she expected, always.” -Djamel Ramoul, Djamel Photography
“Jane and Daniel were one of the sweetest couples to work with. They are both incredibly kind and laid back as individuals and that energy flows between them even more as a couple. I was super excited during their wedding day portraits because I knew we were capturing that energy on camera. They also set aside a lot of time for their photos which was an added bonus!” -Ashley Roper, Grind & Press Photography
“I loved getting the opportunity to work with such a talented creative team. When a vision comes together, and is executed so flawlessly, it really helps me to translate that into gorgeous images, especially with such stunning bride and groom. The newly renovated Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club created a perfect backdrop for this styled wedding shoot: the light, the dress, the decor, the bride’s hair and makeup; everything was perfect and a photographer’s dream!” -Andi Diamond, Andi Diamond Photography
“I loved these photos so much! The couple is adorable and the bride is stunning! The light was so beautiful at the venue that day. This bride and groom represent exactly the style and feel of what I am aiming to offer each of my couples, a beautiful portrait that shows off their love and happiness on their best day ever!” -Ailyn La Torre, Ailyn La Torre Photography
