Orlando Wedding Photography Blog

Here are some of our favorite photos from Liz and Nick’s engagement session at Lake Eola. We had a great time doing these photos in the heart of downtown Orlando. Lake Eola has a lot of great photo spots if you can convince the giant swans to move out of your way.

Liz and Nick were a lot of fun to work with and very comfortable in front of the camera. I’m honored to photograph their wedding this summer at First Congregational Church of Winter Park and Timacuan Country Club.

Please come back to see photos from their wedding!

Meghan and Damian’s Disney inspired wedding at the Omni Championsgate had many touches of pixie dust – all showing how much they love the Mouse. They met while working at Walt Disney World, so it seemed right that it played a part in their wedding.

Meghan wore amazing custom-painted Little Mermaid flats (did we mention amazing? They were so cool!) and the harpist played instrumental Disney songs as the wedding party and the bride walked down the aisle.

At the reception, guests were given little cards on which to write advice for the bride and groom for 5, 10, and 25 years in the future – but these two needed no help in showing how much they love and care for each other. The whole day was a wonderful mix of Disney, friends and family. The reception ended with the DJ playing the Mickey Mouse March (M-I-C See ya real soon! K-E-Y. Why? Because we like you! M-O-U-S-E).

Meghan and Damian were an awesome couple to work with. Their speeches at the reception, with some gentle ribbing of each another, had everyone cracking up. It was just a FUN day.

Omni Championsgate


The Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate was a beautiful location for their wedding. Their wedding ceremony was held in the Garden Gazebo with the reception in the Championsgate Ballroom.

Kyle from Blush by Brandee Gaar did a fantastic job as the event coordinator. It always takes the stress off of the bride and groom knowing that their wedding day is in great hands.

We were so excited to be a part of such a wonderful wedding – thank you for letting us join in your special day!

When Allura and Chris scheduled their Winter Park engagement session, they asked if they could include their dog. I said “Yes!” without hesitation because I love when couples bring their pets along for engagement photos. I even did a blog post about that very subject. Wilson, a Yorkie-Chihuahua mix, was so sweet and loved being in front of the camera. A big thanks to Allura’s mom and dad who kept an eye on him while we took photos.

Allura and Chris signed up for the premiere engagement session, allowing us to travel to multiple locations. These are always a lot of fun to do, because we get more time to work together and they get a chance to wear several different outfits.

Winter Park Engagement Photos on Park Avenue


We started the photo session along Park Avenue in Winter Park. It’s one of my favorite places for photos because there’s always so much going on – lots of bustling activity with the shops, restaurants and people everywhere. It’s also a social spot for pets, as sometimes there are more dogs than people. Every time I go there, I find somewhere new to shoot!

Winter Park Engagement Photos at Rollins College


Rollins College is one of Central Florida’s most beautiful and historical treasures. After a quick change of clothes, we took a bunch of photos on the the grounds of Knowles Memorial Chapel and some fun ones on Mills Lawn.

Allura and Chris will be getting married later this year at Tuscawilla Country Club. We’re so excited to photograph their wedding, so please keep an eye on the blog for photos from the big day!

Speaking of Winter Park, we’re very excited to be participating in the Winter Park Bridal Stroll this Sunday, February 8, 2015. Come visit our booth at the Park Plaza Gardens (319 South Park Avenue, Winter Park, FL). We’d love to see you.
