Lange Farm Wedding – Joshua and Brittany

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

This is an amazing location for a wedding, Lange Farm just east of Tampa.  So I was definitely beyond excited when I found out Brittany + Joshua would be celebrating their special day at Lange Farm and Ranch in Southwest Florida. Their beautiful, rustic wedding was full of fabulous details, wonderful people, and plenty of love and laughter.   Here are a few of my favorite moments from their day.

Cross Creek Ranch

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Jessica and Justin, what can I say? I will go back over a year now when they came into my studio to talk photography – still unsure about the location of the wedding and even the exact date for that matter. The story was set. Outgoing smart couple super excited about planning their wedding; searching for the perfect venue and not settling for anything less than exactly what will thrill them and their family and friends on their ‘big Day’. Knowing I was going to be part of this union know matter where or when, I was patient but knew I was in for something new; different. Cross Creek Ranch, sure I had heard some recent buzz about it, no I had never photographed a wedding there before. But that is about to change..

I was in for a rare treat. Being an on the coast Sarasota Photographer, photographing a wedding like this is not a weekly occurrence   Hello Florida countryside meets charming horse stables meets photography eye candy everywhere. Honestly I didn’t know where to start. I was so excited see what we were going to come up with for this amazing couple at this new venue. And it goes a little something like this:

It certainly is isn’t?

Love this touch, the mossy tree heart with inscription. Perfect

What could be more perfect, fluttering clothes pinned photo’s from the couples past: yes I looked at every one of them. Treats for everyone, and propped up on a table supported by vintage Jack Daniel Barrels. Sweet!  No pun intended:)

Love the country inspired vintage theme, from the antiques set about the place right down to the cowboy boots! 

Hello! Rustic Chandelier billowing in the wind, vintage inspired canning jars filled with a mix of wild flowers- grand oak tree adorned with the big A. It couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for a late afternoon ceremony for a couple in love. Even I had to hold back my tears: Really!!

Oh and there were a few surprises as I was walking around the grounds with the wedding party: a tractor. painted orange. placed perfectly in the field. Of Course! 

Jessica and Justin, thank you so very much for finding me and letting me be part of your special day. And thanks for following through with your vision so my camera and I could be there to experience it with you. Well done!  All the happiness to this amazing couple!!

You all want to know what kind of style my assistants and 2nd photographers have as their shooting style; Why my style of course! Talented and passionate in their own right about photography, here are a few examples of  photographs taken by my 2nd photographers. Enjoy – they ROCK

I will be adding more, but I hope you really enjoyed seeing the artistic endeavors of the photographer I work closest with.  All these photo’s were taken in the last few months.  Thanks for looking and thank you Matthew and Eric.

Crosley Mansion Wedding, Sarasota

Monday, December 5th, 2011

The Powel Crosley Estate, in Sarasota must be one of the hidden gems of this little city, not many people that I know have ever heard about it.   I can not think of a more perfect setting to host an intimate, sophisticated wedding than at this mansion.  Caitlyn and Tyler called me up about 6 months before their wedding to chat with me about their big day and tell me that I was the one they were looking for to capture those special moments. I didn’t meet either one of them until the day of the wedding, but we had a blast and made some crazy, beautiful art!  Here are the highlights to what turned out to be a spectacular evening.  And as always, I’m in love with the brides shoes – from paris.

I LOVED the shoes as I am sure you can tell! Caitlyn and Tyler’s wedding was so much FUN! A sophisticated wedding with a splash of Dutch, (Tyler) and a hint of old Paris (Caitlyn) was a photographers dream!

Sarasota Yacht Club Wedding

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Kenneth and Chrissy were married on June 12th in Sarasota Florida at the beautiful St. Barbara’s Greek Orthodox Church.  The lighting in the church was just stunning for photography without flash and the ceremony was a full Greek Mass, which if you have ever attended is very beautiful with many Greek traditions.  After the ceremony at the church and a quick stop at the statue we all know and love, we headed over to the all exclusive Sarasota Yacht Club for a beautiful night of  traditional Greek dancing and dinner.  How much fun with all the music and energetic dancing.  I can not say enough about the impeccable  Sarasota Yacht club!
