a quick peek for one of the sweetest couples ever… (and oh, jenni, how beautiful.)
the grande plaza wedding was a classic Florida beach resort wedding. the hosts at Grand Plaza were gracious and attentive, and the penthouse is gorgeous!
without question, one of my favorite wedding images ever:
jenni and scott are one of those couples who are truly, obviously best friends. the way he looks at her is breathtaking. the way she takes care of him is inspiring. it was truly a privilege to share the day with the two of them, their families, and friends.
more to come… happy honeymooning!
big hugs, brian and angela
when bryce emailed me and told me about an engagement session she’d seen online inspired by disney’s “up,” i knew i’d seen one too, and it was gorgeous! although we try to make each session unique, the photographers who’ve photographed this session are onto something… the movie has so much sweet marriage commentary in about three minutes at the beginning, what couple wouldn’t be inspired and encouraged! that these two were willing to drive all the way from gainesville for the session is a huge honor…
once i saw that yellow house, i knew we had to shoot at our beloved heritage village. we’ve been going there since our kiddos were in strollers (anyone else?!) and now my oldest is a volunteer. i knew this house had to make an appearance!!
ryan, please don’t be mad if i call you adorable, k?
so many times i’ve thought of the little (red) bird and how it represented hope and future for that sweet couple. i’ve been inspired to dive in and live life more passionately with my own sweetie while we have the moment here on earth…
i know he tells you this, bryce, but it’s true… you’re so pretty…
i knew when i watched the movie with my kiddos that we had to recreate that precious moment where the husband and wife are washing windows together… just not quite literally.
thank you, thank you both, for a wonderful afternoon. thank you for going all out with clothes and props and a long drive. thank you for being such a cool couple!
huge hugs… brian and angela
dc is one of those girls who just has timeless beauty. she’s brilliant and talented (an advanced student who’s already starred in a movie!), but more than anything, her sweet spirit shines through.
the railroad tracks have special memories for dc – near her house, they sort of represent childhood and future all tied into one.
oh, you are so beautiful…
what a privelege to meet you two, and dc, to learn a bit about such an awesome young woman!!
(a-girl, you were an awesome assistant, as usual… dea, you were, too!!)
*as i was posting my girl came in and said, “her photos are so beautiful… she’s so beautiful!!” she’s right.
sigh. when courtney and i first met, we hit it off like old friends. when she calls to chat wedding plans, we giggle like grade-school girls. she’s just that kind of girl… creative, yet practical, excited, yet calm… unless of course, when it comes to greg… then “calm” is relative and her excitement and joy is all over her. when we met him, we knew why… he’s the sweetest guy and obviously smitten with his girl.
courtney did the smartest thing (well, in my opinion!) when looking for her outfit for the session. after a long and tiring hunt, she walked straight into ann taylor and took a look at the sales associate whose look she loved. “i want THAT look,” she told her. and well, don’t you think, she rocked it?
um, hello – when courtney showed up and said, “we’re planning to roll in the waves,” we were a bit excited.
courtney, it was better than we’d planned to finally get the two of you in front of our lenses… we can’t wait for the next session, and for your fantabulous autumn Cross Creek Ranch wedding!
hugs!! -brian and angela
i’m not gonna lie, when lindsey’s mom asked about including her horse in her senior session, i did a little inner dance. we’ve considered it with other clients, but time or locations didn’t allow for it… boy, am i glad it worked out this time!
some girls know how to rock a camera and are utterly aware of the space around them and the impact they make. those girls are fun to work with! other girls are just beautiful from the inside all the way to the outside. they don’t need to grab your attention – they just do it without trying. those girls melt my heart, and they are the love of my senior work. you, lindsey, made my heart melt!
we weren’t even sure lindsey’s session could happen, due to an injury she got playing ultimate frisbee. we decided to give it a go because of time constraints… can you believe how awesome she did?!
lindsey, you are beautiful. i know mom said you were a little hesitant to “model,” but your smile lit up the afternoon, and your grace is evident. i loved meeting buster, and i loved meeting each of you. i can’t wait to hear all about your amazing successes in life!
