You may remember Jessica and Robbie from their downtown Orlando Engagement session I posted awhile back. We had a great time that day and I was anxiously awaiting their wedding at Leu Gardens.

Jessica got ready in the home she grew up in, which was nice to see the dress hanging from the same banister, that Jessica passed thousands of times over the years. When we arrived, I saw something that I had never seen before – one of Jessica’s bridesmaids was drawing a sign, using one of the engagement photos as the basis. It was really fantastic to see one of our photos be the basis for, yet another piece of artwork.

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous Holy Cross Catholic Church in Orlando. After family photos in the sanctuary, we headed to Leu Gardens for wedding party photos and the reception.

I love photographing weddings at Leu Gardens – no matter where you look, there is a wonderful backdrop for photos. Jessica and Robbie had a really great wedding party, who were really easy to work with.

The reception was held in the Camellia Room, where DJ Live did a great job at keeping the guests dancing all night.

We had a great time and Jessica and Robbie are such a sweet couple. It was our honor to be their wedding photographer.

Please enjoy the photos below!

Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season. The past couple months, we have been so busy with clients that we haven’t had much time to update the blog. 2015 is shaping up to be our best year ever with a schedule full of portrait sessions and amazing weddings!

One of the first weddings of the year will be Kellie and Kevin. I did their engagement session at Leu Gardens last Summer. Leu Gardens, located near downtown Orlando, is beautiful no matter what time of year I visit it.

Kellie and Kevin’s wedding will be in a few weeks at one of my favorite places for weddings in central Florida – Timacuan Golf and Country Club in Lake Mary.

We had a great time and we’re looking forward to photographing their wedding. Please enjoy these photos from their engagement session and check back for their wedding photos!

Lisa and Olivier were a fun couple to do engagement photos with. We met at Leu Gardens in Orlando where we visited the various areas of the gardens for photos. Despite being a bit chilly for Orlando, it was still a gorgeous day and many of the flowers were in bloom.

Lisa brought along some picture frames that we used for some fun photos, and I brought along a bag of candy valentine hearts where I took photos of Lisa’s fantastic engagement ring. I do wonder if anyone has ever proposed using candy conversation hearts.

I can’t wait to photograph their wedding later this month at the Historic Dubsdread Ballroom!
