Mission San Luis Wedding

Just off the edge of the FSU campus and near the residences of many college students lies a Tallahassee treasure. It is one I had passed by many, many times without ever visiting. That is, until I wanted to scout the grounds in search of some awesome locations for pictures at the wedding I was to shoot the following weekend. Elizabeth and Tai were set to get married at the Mission toward the end of July and it gave me a good excuse to visit before all the rushing around during the wedding day.

Pro tip: each photo is larger than shown below, click to enlarge!

    Gretchen & Justin & Tallahassee Wedding Photos

    It all started at Brittany’s wedding a couple years earlier, that’s where I met Gretchen. She has a vibrant personality and it just radiates from her. She helped to create a calm atmosphere for the other bridesmaids and Brittany all day long, so I was beyond thrilled when she called in need of a photographer for her wedding. We hit up downtown Tallahassee for the engagement photo session a number of weeks before the big day. Wedding day. Ah! Perfect weather, a couple in love, friends, family: these are the makings of a great wedding. We started out at Trinity Community Church, near Killearn, and then moved just down the road to Z. Bardhi’s for an intimate afternoon reception, where Nate from Amplify Entertainment took over the hosting duties. What a fantastic fun-filled, love-filled day! View more photos from their wedding at Trinity Community Church and Z. Bardhi’s.

      Phoenix & David • Wedding at Lichgate in Tallahassee

      Driving down High Road in Tallahassee you’d never expect to see a place as magical and full of wonderment as Lichgate. A grandfather oak takes center stage as soon as you get through the woodsy clearing and instantly you’re transported out of the small Tally town and into the world of Lichgate. Thinking about how many people have seen that tree and the history it holds is a constant thought while on the grounds. And that is one reason why it was such a special place for Phoenix and David to get married. They gathered their friends and family under the shade and magnificence of the oak for a ceremony of true love.

      See more of the wedding at the Lichgate grounds.

        Backyard Wedding in Melbourne, FL

        On the east coast of Florida you’re bound for gorgeous weather most of the year, even in the winter. Lizzie and Ryan got married in December in the backyard of a house settled on an inlet. Skies were clear, temperature was nestled sweetly in the mid-70s, fish were leaping out of the water in the middle of the ceremony (no joke and, unfortunately, no photo evidence).

        See? Gorgeous! What’d I tell ya? The atmosphere was as chill as the photos look. A small group of friends and family were in attendance and were painted in the sunlight as it trickled through the oak trees. See all the photos from this backyard wedding ceremony.

        Everyone headed over the Melbourne Causeway to City Tropics Bistro in Indialantic for dinner. The room that was reserved continued the intimate atmosphere of the ceremony perfectly.

          Fun Photo Moments • Double Pictures & Unposed Formals

          Two types of photos not staged but that I love getting are pictures of people taking pictures and shared moments between newlyweds during formals when everyone else has taken a break from posing.
