Kelley and Michael were married on Saturday at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Hernando followed by a reception at Black Diamond Ranch in Lecanto. It was an absolutely gorgeous day with clear blue skies and temperatures cool enough to be comfortable without being cold. The love between this bride and groom was palpable and made my job so much easier. They're also a very fun couple and were not only willing to try out some fun and silly poses but even had ideas of their own for lighthearted photos. I hope they have a long and happy marriage and are always as connected as they were on this special day.

Ami and Trent's Wedding Photographs at The Homosassa Wildlife Park and Citrus Hills Country Club - Sneak Peek
Congratulations Ami and Trent! It was so great to be a part of your big day. I first met Ami and Trent back in May for their engagement photos and they are one of the most laid back and happy couples I've worked with. They're from Virginia but they chose to get married here and introduce their guests to the manatee! Every detail of their wedding included an element of fun. Instead of vows they had trust falls and their guests made a tunnel for them to run through when they came back down the aisle.
When a couple is truly in love you can just tell. Elise and Randy are truly in love. You can see it in the way they look at each other, and more than that, you can see it in the way they have brought their two families together. Elise and Randy were already married but they decided they still wanted to have the big celebration with their friends and family so they had the freedom to do things a little differently. For example, they chose to see each other before the ceremony (see below for photos of Randy seeing Elise for the first time) and Elise's dad officiated the ceremony. I wish Randy and Elise a long, happy life together!!
It's rare to photograph a baby as calm and happy as little Ella! This gorgeous little girl was eleven days old when I met her and just as sweet a can be. Though she was wide awake when our session started she was still happy to let me move her all around and do what I had to. Then once she fell asleep she was even easier! And her mom and dad are absolutely smitten with her, look below for a shot of Ella on the rocking chair/ cradle her dad built for her!
Penelope and Steven's Wedding at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park Pepper Creek Terrace in Homosassa - Sneak Peek
With all their friends and family around them Penelope and Steven were married on Saturday October 15th 2016. Both the bride and the groom had tears in their eyes when they said their "I do's" at the beautiful Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park. There were a few bumps in the road on the wedding day, broken zippers, broken elevators, and rain early in the day. But once the ceremony began everyone forgot all about those things. I just know that Penelope and Steven have a long and happy marriage ahead of them and lots of people to share their happiness with.
Aubrey and Jeremy were married this weekend in a friend's gorgeous backyard overlooking the Homosassa River. It looked like we would be rained out. It started pouring about an hour before the wedding was supposed to start and it didn't look like it was going to let up. The minutes ticked by and the bride and groom were trying to decide if they should bite the bullet and move the ceremony to the reception site or keep waiting. Just as they were making the sad decision that they had to move the rain suddenly stopped! It was clear for the rest of their perfect day. After a ceremony that not only included the bride and groom but also the bride's daughter Carli and the groom's children Aubrey, Brooklyn, and Garrett we headed over to The Seagrass Waterfront Restaurant and Resort for the reception. But the party wasn't over after that, the whole group hopped into a few boats to go to the springs and swim for the rest of the day. Congratulations Grangers!!
I can't believe my baby sister is graduating from high school this year!! Rachel is 12 years younger than me so this of course makes me feel very old. As the years have gone by she's has become so smart and funny and kind. I know she's going to do great things. Also, could you quit growing already, geez!!!
I photographed little three week old Ava in Citrus Springs on Saturday and she could not have been sweeter! We met during her sleepiest time of day so she was very relaxed and slept through most of her session. She is also one of the smiliest babies I've ever met! I don't know what she was dreaming about but it was definitely making her happy.
These two will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in June and they still seem so in love. I photographed their daughter with her husband and dogs a few months back so it was wonderful to be able to meet them and get to know them a bit. The best part was getting a chance to look through their wedding album, you can see a few of their wedding photos below.
