Jon and Julie Key West Wedding Photographer

  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.

Brooke and Dominic's Key West Wedding

Brooke and Dominic's wedding was super special to  me.  I have been friends with them for years.  I absolutely love them and their family.  They are the most gracious group of people I have ever known.  I was very excited when they asked me to join them in Key West for their wedding.  The wedding was a laid back beach ceremony at the Casa Marina Resort.  Brooke looked stunning and smiled the entire day.   Dominic, who I thought would be nervous was calm and cool.  I think I heard them say I love you to each other at least 100 times, it was so sweet.  Brooke and Dom, I cant thank you enough for this amazing opportunity.  I had a blast and I am truly honored you chose me to photograph your wedding. :)       The night before the wedding Brooke and Dominic chartered a sailboat for a sunset cruise.  It was so much fun!The wedding was so beautiful.  The weather was perfect and the beach backdrop was gorgeous. Check out Brooke's killer shoes.  Brooke is the only girl I know who isn't afraid to wear wedges like these on the beach.  Dominic and his family own the Bell Event Centre.  They had a reception there to celebrate with all of their friends and family when they got back. The amazing women of the Bell.
