In January I received a call from a bride. She was pretty calm for a woman who had to find a new wedding photographer in less than 3 months. Her original photographer had to pass on the wedding and she got my name from a referral and was hoping that I was open. Luckily, I was. Her fiance loved documentary style and after viewing my website and blog she thought we were a great match.
We met in person and the contract was signed. They couldn’t have been cuter. We started talking about the plans and my involvement and the weeks between flew by.
They chose the Tradewinds Island Grand on St. Pete Beach. The perfect backdrop for their big day. I arrived on that warm, breezy Saturday and found Melissa surrounded by her Mom and friends girl friends. Again she was calm, content and enjoying every moment. While I hung out with Melissa, my friend, Elise Schreiner of Elise Schreiner Photography was on hand to capture Kip and his guys. (Make sure to check out her blog in the coming weeks to see her favorites from the day.)
We both had such a great time capturing the days events. I don’t Kip and Melissa could take a bad photo. They are not only beautiful on the outside but on the inside as well.
I wish them the best on their new adventure as Mr. & Mrs.
Here are a few of my favorites from the day. Enjoy!
