Elizabeth & Tai

Mission San Luis — Tallahassee, FL

Standing in the doorway to the church at Mission San Luis

Elizabeth and Tai chose to embark on their journey as husband and wife at the beautiful Tallahassee treasure, Mission San Luis. Not long before the wedding, we got a chance to take some engagement photos at the ever-popular and beautiful Dorothy B. Oven Park.

Wedding

Family and friends came from all around the country to take part in this joyous day. Though the Mission is plenty big, you could feel the closeness of everyone at the wedding: it was a beautiful thing. Upon delivering the wedding photos, Elizabeth said, “I’m really glad we hired you to be our photographer.” The pleasure was all mine!
