Lauren & Bryan were such a pleasure to work with. The couple works at a very exclusive resort in the Florida Keys which I work frequently at, as well. I was looking forward to this day for a while. Amazing couple. Lauren is one of the most gracious and appreciative brides ever. This wedding took place at Faro Blanco Resort in Marathon, FL. I love being creative and making a great venue look amazing. One of the things I loved most about this wedding was that the love from the friends and family had such a joyful charm. Lauren and Bryan are Key West locals, so there were so many guests. The getting ready photographs were in the hotel room of the Faro Blanco. Then we moved to the beach by the lighthouse. I remember that the wedding was running late. I helped organize the guests and put on the boutonnieres so we would not miss the sunset. Helping the wedding coordinators when possible is just part of the job.
For the ceremony, I photographed Lauren's face first. During the ceremony I always photograph the bride looking at the groom first in case the bride "tears up." After the ceremony, there was beautiful lighting. As I showed them photographs on the back the camera, I remember them just being "blown away by the images." I truly get a "natural high" when I see the joy on their faces loving the photographs. After the reception, they begged me to stay and have some drinks, but I had to go home and download the images. Making sure the images are safe is the final and most important part of being a wedding photographer.
