We met Crystal, Jared, and Rowan in Winter Park last year for their family session.

I thought my today could use a cute baby in OshKosh overalls, what about you? :)

I’m embarrassed to admit the actual number of weddings we photographed in our home state when we were Tennessee residents, but the ones we did shoot, we loved so much! :) Virginia and Lindsey were our last TN couple, and we shot their wedding right after deciding it was time to move back home to Florida but before we put our home up for sale. It was a scary time not knowing if we’d be able to sell the house, whether it would sell quickly or we’d be there for months and months, where exactly  we’d live when we move back to Florida, if it was possible to fit everything in a moving van, if friends in Tennessee would forgive us for moving or Florida friends would still want to see us, etc. etc.

When we moved to Tennessee, my number 1 wedding bucket list hope was to photograph at the Peabody Hotel. It is the most special place in downtown Memphis to me, and where I spent every Thanksgiving growing up. My family would get all gussied up and go to the fancy Thanksgiving Day brunch, hang out with the ducks, get a photo in front of the giant Christmas tree, and then head home to decorate our own. It’s such a special place and it was an absolute dream to finally be able to shoot there. :)

One of Virginia’s bridesmaids had temporary tattoos made of their dog Nigel. :)

Lindsay and Jackie’s alternative to the sand ceremony or unity candle may be one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen!

Basically instead of combining sand, you combine glass crystals. You choose your colors and what you’d like your glass made into, send the pieces back to Unity in Glass, and then get this completely awesome piece of art to display in your home the rest of your lives. How cool is this?! The pieces run from $60 to almost $700, and they even have a UNITY ORNAMENT, YOU GUYS.

For more information, head over to Unity in Glass. I so hope to see more of these in the coming years! :)

Today’s session involves the cutest couple you’ve ever seen and the cutest big dog you’ve ever seen. And we happened to take these in downtown Winter Garden, which also happens to be the cutest downtown you’ve ever seen- Though we’re a little partial. ;)

Just know that every single one of these is a favorite! <3

These two. <3

Jessica and Ben met online and were engaged in Walt Disney World, so it was only right that these amazing Aussies came back to their favorite place to get married.

It’s always a wonderful thing when we get our first inquiry email from a new couple and immediately get that feeling that they’re a perfect fit for us. Our first communication was from Ben, who wrote, “We love being around each other and even trips to the grocery store are whimsical adventures when we’re together.”

I mean… He had me at hello. Oh, and did I mention they’re also Australian wedding photographers? You can find their business Facebook page here. :)

I love that even after ~8 years of photographing Disney weddings, there are still venues we’ve never photographed before! Jess and Ben had their reception at the Disney Hollywood Studios Prop Shop.
