Klarissa & Abe : Wedding

I'm just about to go to bed, but I wanted to post some favorites from Klarissa and Abe's wedding a while back! Because they live out of town, we weren't able to meet them before the wedding day, but I was amazed at how natural they both were in front of the camera! Such a relief! :)

Klarissa had such a classic look to her:
The "first look." Love it.
Isn't she gorgeous?!

This was our first Mormon wedding! We weren't able to be in the Temple for the ceremony since we aren't members of the church. We waited outside with some of the other guests for them to come out after the sealing... Here they are just married!

LOVE it!
Klarissa and Abe had a ring ceremony for the guests that weren't able to watch the sealing.
Favorite. :)
Her sweet dad officiated the ceremony.

Yay cake! The flowers on the outside were designed to match her dress, which I thought was just fabulous!
Abe ended the evening with a song he wrote for Klarissa!
Then they watched a slideshow...
Klarissa did the bouquet toss right before they left for the night! She gave the flowers a little extra help finding their way to her sister. :)

Klarissa and Abe, thank you for the honor!! Happy eternity. :)

Shanna & Mike : Engagement

Shanna and Mike found us through one of our favorite coordinators - Tracy of Eventfully Yours! We met them at Cocoa Beach for their session. :)

Just a quick one for Mom and Dad..

LOVED playing under the pier!

Shanna and Mike - We'll see you in March!!

Heidi & Tom : Engagement

Heidi and Tom live on a base in Germany and we're shooting their Disney wedding in January. :) I'm so glad we got to meet beforehand and do a session with them. Tom is one of the nicest, most outgoing guys I've ever met, and Heidi is the perfect balance for him! We did their session around the Disney resorts.

Did I mention they're both over 6 feet tall?...

... And Army helicopter pilots? ;)

I love how easy it was for Tom to make Heidi laugh!

Favorite. :)

Heidi & Tom- We'll see you in January!!!

Crystal & Chris : Engagement

We shot Crystal and Chris' engagement where we've done many other sessions lately- Rollins and Park Avenue. This was the perfect couple for us at the perfect time, because once again, we've become a little too familiar with the Park Ave scene.

When our locations start getting a little stale to us, our work feels the same. When Nathan asked Crystal where she wanted her engagement shoot, we did everything we could to discourage another Park Ave shoot. Crystal made it clear she didn't care if we skipped out on the usual spots, she just wanted it somewhere in the vicinity. We loved her for that, and I couldn't be happier with the new spots we found! :)

Have I also mentioned they're eloping next month?!!

One more thing to take note of before scrolling the photos.. These guys have been together for years and haven't kissed... They won't until their wedding day! Nathan and I were a little worried at how the session would go, seeing as this was a first for us. However, between fresh locations and having to think a little outside of our box, it ended up being one of my favorite sessions of the year!

With certain expressions, Crystal reminded me so much of my idol, Audrey Hepburn. I think this one was my favorite from the session for that very reason!

On to Park Ave...
I love the feel of this one!

I could seriously shoot her all day!

LOVE it!

Guys, we'll see you next month!!
