Tarin & Tate’s Florida Wedding by the Bay

Well, usually my posts aren’t quite this long but I obviously couldn’t hold back; so much pretty to share when it’s a perfect warm, sunny Florida wedding day! After shooting Tarin & Tate in love two times (& here), it was such an honor and pleasure to capture their wedding day as well, not only as my clients, but as friends. I love that they chose an old-world Spanish-inspired museum by the bay as the gorgeous background (yes, the manatee lives in the museum!). Tarin’s stunning Martina Liana gown fit like a glove and together with that waterfall pastel rose bouquet…yeah, um wow. Oh and did I mention I’m a very proud aunt? – that cute little flower girl just so happens to be my niece!

Oh, and Florida brides, I’d love to send you a fantastic quote on your wedding photography for the chance to get back down to paradise! 😉

Tarin & Tate’s Florida Wedding – Sneak Peek

I loooove destination weddings!! – especially when they involve palm trees! As friends of my sister’s family (who lives in Florida), I’ve had the pleasure of photographing these Tarin & Tate 3 times now – portraits on the beach 3 years ago, their engagement session 1 year ago, and this year their wedding. So I have been excited about this day for a long time coming! I can’t wait to share more from their beautiful wedding day in Bradenton soon!

Florida brides on the gulf coast, I’d love to quote you a fantastic deal and come shoot your wedding!

DePung Family

How more fitting can you get? – this adorable family is growing with baby #2 on the way, their photoshoot was in a garden, and their cute little sprout is smiling amongst the flowers. (if I was more clever, I would have come up with a better title to fit that all in haha)

I’ve had the pleasure of capturing this little family through some milestones as they’ve grown. It’s going to feel like de ja vu in just a few more months with their second newborn session!

Oh, and an added bonus of shooting at the Missouri Botanical Gardens and having amazing clients – after the session, I got to check out the orchid show for the first time which was so gorgeous!
