There are few things better than getting to know a couple in front of our cameras. When we first officially became a part of Kate and Ricky’s wedding day Ricky was out of town, so we immediately loved Kate but we were excited to see the two of them together. We met on a Sunday afternoon for their session in Tampa, and were instantly smitten with Kate + Ricky as a couple. Ricky is absolutely amazing at making Kate laugh at a moments notice, and she cuddles into him in the most perfect way. The two of them were completely at home in front of the lens, and we loved documenting the way they love each other so easily.

We had a blast wandering around downtown, and of course had to make a pit-stop at the Amalie Arena to bring a little Lightning magic to their session. This was (don’t judge) our very FIRST time ever being at the arena, and it may have been the push we needed to finally make it to a game sometime soon! There is so much fun team spirit oozing out of that place it was easy to see why these two love going to games.

Kate + Ricky, we had a fabulous afternoon with you both and can’t wait to be back downtown with you two in October! Enjoy a few of our favorites from an awesome afternoon!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

It’s a strange thing to try and describe the feeling in a look. To attempt to give words to something that has none, or approach love as if it wasn’t something entirely immeasurable. But they way she looks at him makes you want to try. And when his entire soul relaxes as she makes him laugh you wish it was possible to freeze time. Just so that for all of eternity you could put those things on display and say THIS. This is love . . . . .

Kailyn + Adam are married! Kailyn wore the most beautiful dress (which had detachable sleeves we LOVED) and tied so many classic details into her wedding day ensemble. Adam and his groomsman looked incredibly dashing in their kilts, which gave the day such a wonderfully regal feeling. Our most favorite moment of the day was when Kailyn surprised Adam with a bagpiper for her walk down the aisle, and we still get chills thinking about the doors opening for her just as the bagpipe began. It was seriously like something straight out of a movie, and we can think of no two people who deserve a moment like this more.

The reception was held outside at the Ybor City Museum Garden, and was lit by string lights and candles. From the custom corn hole, to the incredibly adorable cake table, these two had a hand in every detail of their reception and it came together perfectly.

Kailyn + Adam, we say this all the time, but we hope you two know how much we truly mean it. THANK YOU. Not only for entrusting us with your wedding, but for letting us into your love story for a day. You two have so much magic  between you, and it was an absolute honor to document it.

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben

One of the huge changes we wanted to make for the start of 2015 was to have an awesome mobile site. We know so many of our couples are just like us and do most of their internet browsing on the go (because who doesn’t like reading Buzzfeed articles in line at the grocery store?!) and we wanted all of our information to be just as accessible out in the world as it is at home. So we set out to find someone to make this idea into an awesomely easy to navigate reality.

Cue the ever so fabulous Rachael of Earl & Layne. She took our giant, desktop sized, website and smooshed it into a mobile-friendly vertical site that isn’t quite as complex but still screams Sarah & Ben. We are absolutely smitten with it, and we think you will be too : )

If you are a photographer, and need a better mobile presence, most definitely check Rachael out! And to everyone else,  head over to www.sarahben.com and take a peek! We hope you’ll bring a little bit of Sarah & Ben with you wherever you go!

 

 

Love + Laughs,

He didn’t like the attention. He told me that as he stood there, with his back turned to his family and friends, with all of their eyes on him. Waiting to see his reaction, whether or not there would be tears, and what they would each say to the other. But then she entered the room, and it seemed with each step she took toward him he grew less and less aware of anyone else’s presence. Until finally she was there, tapping him on the shoulder, and letting him turn around to see her. Only her. Because in that moment it seemed that neither of them realized anyone else was there or that any other eyes were on them. It was simply a moment, just like the day it was part of, that was theirs . . .  .

Michael + Tyrette are married! The two of them started the day with a first look surrounded by their parents and bridal party, before some portraits and the signing of their ketubah. Tyrette looked absolutely stunning in her dress, which had these lovely and delicate beaded straps, and Michael may or may not have been called James Bond just a feeeew times, because he was looking pretty dapper himself! They had a traditional Jewish ceremony at The Museum of Fine Arts in St. Pete in the ever-so-gorgeous Marley Room. We loved their chuppah set-up with the arrangements of flowers on each side, and how their parents and siblings stood up with them through the entire ceremony.

The reception soundtrack was provided by the insanely talented Phase 5 band, and Olympia Catering provided delish food as always. This reception was definitely a full-on party, with some traditional dances like the Hora and (our personal fave!) the Mizinke thrown in for good measure, and we absolutely loved documenting every minute of it!

Michael + Tyrette, thank you for a wonderful day! Hope you enjoy a few of our favorites : )

Love + Laughs,

I have been sitting here trying to write this for a bit, and adequately describing just how adorable these two are is proving to be every bit as difficult as narrowing down the images for this post was. Because they are just too much everything. Too cute, too sweet, and just too smitten with each other to describe.  They have a style we love (which of course includes bows, polka dots, and even a beret), they laugh together constantly, and they kiss in that smiley way that lets you know just how excited they each are to be with the other. Their’s is the kind of love story we get excited to document, and we felt so thankful for our laid-back afternoon with them.

We had so much fun exploring the grounds of the always stunning Ringling Museum (seriously, every time we go we have a hard time even believing this place is REAL), and loved so many moments of the day. From George’s awesome emergency bowtie to the fact that we felt like we had the place all to ourselves, it was just perfect.

Melinda + George, thank you so much for an amazing afternoon and for our dessert party in the parking lot! We can’t wait for June!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
