There was no more perfect song for that moment than the one they danced to that night. No words more fitting for him to hold her close to than the ones that filled the room. “Through chaos as it swirls, it’s us against the world”. Because a few short hours earlier they had made a promise, shared a kiss, and then turned around to face the world as husband and wife for the very first time. And that day, as they walked back up the aisle, they set out to go up against the world together for as long as forever would allow . . . .

Angela and Wynston are married! They had the most amazingly styled wedding day at The Epicurean Hotel (where we have been absolutely DYING to shoot!) and everything came together perfectly. Angela and her girls started the day with an adorable mimosa bar, before she put on her absolutely gorgeous dress. (Sleeves AND a giant bow?! We were in heaven!) From the color palette of Angela’s bouquet to the different shades of purple of the bridesmaid dresses, there was not a detail that did not flow perfectly with the next. And Wynston and his groomsmen were rocking some perfectly fitted suits and pocket squares that looked absolutely dashing!

After a love filled ceremony at Christ the King we were spoiled with getting to sneak into Chocolate Pi for some sweet (pun very much intended!) portraits of the two of them! The Epicurean provided SO many amazing portrait spots that we could seriously shoot there a million times and always find something inspiring.We loved that the reception centerpieces were a little different on each table, and how intimate and cozy the room felt. Every one in attendance had an awesome view of all the action on the dance floor (including the hilarious dance Angela shared with her dad) and it felt like one close-knit group there to celebrate two people very much worth celebrating.

Angela and Wynston, we are not only so excited to know you both and now have you two as friends, but we were beyond thrilled to have been the lucky ones to document this day for you guys. Everything about your wedding was an absolute dream for us to capture, and we feel so thankful to have been a part of it.

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

Before we ever met Melissa and Carl in person, we got to meet them through a video of Carl’s proposal on their wedding website. We loved watching their “yes” moment (and would be lying if we said we didn’t watch it more than once) and were so excited to get to meet the two of them in person! Well, as sweet and happily in love as these two looked via video, they were even more so in real life, and after getting to meet them we were beyond excited to get to be a part of their big day!

We met the two of them for a downtown Tampa session that finished by the water of Bayshore with some lovely golden light. We adored how the two of them fit together in just the right way, with her being able to nuzzle right into his chest as his lips perfectly come to rest on the top of her head for sweet kisses. Looking at them together, you just know that their hearts were put together for a reason.

Melissa + Carl, we had such a wonderfully laid back afternoon with you two, and we are beyond excited to spend the day with you guys at The Regent next year!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

Gabe was in the bridal party of a wedding we shot a couple of years ago, so we were SO excited when we got a call from Heather about documenting THEIR wedding day. We love this sweet group of friends, and are pumped to get to spend more time with them!

We met the two of them at a state park for some exploring among the lakes and trees, before heading to a nearby field for some awesome rustic shots in the tall grass. Their outfits perfectly coordinated with the locations, (can we talk about her gorg teal dress?!) and we loved how sweet the two of them are together.

Heather and Gabe, we can’t wait to see you guys again on the big day! Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon of exploring, and for braving the mosquitos and nature for these shots!

When we have a Skype consult we are always super excited (partly because we get to wear pj bottoms with our fancy business clothes on top) but we also miss that in person interaction that comes from getting to meet with our couples in person. Getting to give them a huge “you’re getting married!” hug, watching the way they interact with each other, and talk without any sort of glitches or freezes in the conversation (because the internet only seems to freeze our faces in the LEAST flattering of expressions). So we were SO excited to finally get together with Kim and Felipe in person for their engagement session, and see them in real life rather than through a computer screen. But you know what the funny thing was? We met them and instantly felt like this wasn’t our first meeting, but our hundredth. We don’t know if it is because they are just so in love with each other that they are comfortable anywhere, or because our ice breaking corny jokes are just that good. Whatever it was, this afternoon was perfection from start to finish.

We had SO much fun exploring part of a nearby park before heading over to the mini golf course for an awesome putt putt date (is this not the cutest idea ever?!) There were tons of laughs, some very suave putting lessons on Felipe’s part, and so, so many bad golf puns. Then, just when the day couldn’t get any better, we finished if off by getting to feed and hold a real live alligator!

Kim and Felipe, you two are just lovely and we had such a fabulous afternoon with both. Thank you for all of the laughs (and crazy faces!) and for making our job so much fun! We can’t WAIT to do it all over again!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

After our very first coffee date with Carly and TC we both agreed on one thing as we got back in the car to head home. These two were so very in love, and we were so excited to get that kind of love in front of our cameras!  And when it was finally time to do just that, these two definitely didn’t disappoint!

We met the two of them in Philippe Park for some nature exploring before heading downtown for some canoodling amongst the shops and boats. We adored how easily these two cuddled with one another, and how they moved from intimate snuggles to full on gut bursting laughs so seamlessly. Our two hours with them felt more like an awesome double date than an afternoon of work, and once again just reminded us of how lucky we are to do what we do.

Carly and TC, thank you for a fabulous afternoon (and the much needed ice cream afterwards!). We adore you both to bits and can’t wait to spend the day with you at the aquarium later this year!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
