I am so grateful for the amazing opportunities being a photographer gives me. Last year was by far one of my favorites. I started and ended my 2013 wedding season in beautiful Key West, Florida with great friends photographing the love.
I flew into Key West for Jon and Julie's wedding on Thanksgiving. When I arrived at the airport I was greeted by warm sunshine and smiles from Jon and his family. This wedding was very special to me. Jon has been a good friend of mine for many years. We have had endless conversations about love, life, and relationships. When he met Julie, who I adored from the first time we said hello, I watched him change from a man searching for happiness into a man full of satisfaction.
Jon and Julie had an intimate wedding surrounded by their family. It was a pleasure to be part of. We spent Thanksgiving at the Casa Marina Resort where we had an amazing dinner. Who says you cant have eggs benedict for Thanksgiving?! Anything goes in Key West. :) After dinner we headed back to Julie's families condo for wine and music. I love this one of Jon. This was right when they picked me up for the wedding. He was so happy. Julie's bouquet was gorgeous. Mama's Flowers in Key West did a fantastic job. Jon and Julie decided to see each other before the ceremony. I love to photograph this moment. I am able to capture so much emotion. The intimate ceremony was at the Ocean Key Resort. After the ceremony we had a very nice sunset dinner on the terrace at Ocean Key. The food and service was outstanding.
I had a late flight home, so I spent some time riding around the island on a bike. It was so relaxing.
