CARLA + RICKY | MANASOTA KEY VOW RENEWAL PHOTOGRAPHER

Carla and Ricky married one another 10 years ago. They had so much fun at their wedding they decided to renew their vows 10 years later in their favorite vacation spot on Manasota Key, Florida! Carla and Ricky renewed their vows in front of their closest loved ones in front of Castaway Condos on Englewood Beach in a sweet, personal ceremony honoring their beautiful history together.

These two are so laid back and easy-going. Couples like Carla and Ricky are so fun to work with because they are completely themselves and that shines through in photos. These photos show exactly what it was like witnessing them exchanging their vows again - warm, loving, and sincere. Carla describes Ricky as good and patient, and a hardworking man and father. She said she falls in love with him any time she sees his with their daughters. Ricky shared he loves seeing Carla with their girls, too. That she teaches them to be strong and self confident (I could see this even in the short time I spent with them). Ricky calls Carla the rock that holds their family together. He would know better than I would, but they seem like an incredible team to me.

Carla + Ricky’s ceremony was heartfelt and personal, ending with a ceremonial shell toss into the ocean to bless the future of their relationship and in remembrance of the family members who could not be present (but would have been so proud). It was beautiful, and I loved being there for it. Sending you all my love as you continue in your marriage, Carla and Ricky!

Warmly,

Cheyenne

AMBER + CHAZ | VENICE FLORIDA COUPLES PHOTOGRAPHER

When I first met Amber and Chaz I made a total fool of myself. I walked right up to them and was like "CONGRATULATIONS!" and Amber smiled and laughed and said, "for what?? Oh, we aren't engaged". 

(Wahhh foot in mouth)! But it was an HONEST MISTAKE. I mean... just LOOK AT THEM! So adorable, so in love, so perfect together! They were really sweet about the whole thing and I just can't gush about them enough.

Here is the best part: I can tell this story now because not long after our shoot, Chaz asked Amber to marry him and she said yes and THEY'RE ENGAGED! ❤ I love happy endings. Haha

SHERREE + JESSE | CROSS CREEK RANCH WEDDING | FLORIDA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Sherree and Jesse's wedding at Cross Creek Ranch was nothing short of a dream. It could have been the groom's silent tears that came at the sight of his bride coming down the aisle. It could have been the incredible venue and how even the coordinators were excited about this wedding. Maybe it was the perfect balance of a touching, intimate ceremony and a dance floor that wouldn't quit - whatever it was, Sherree and Jesse's wedding was special from beginning to end and is a day I won't soon forget!

KYLE + WYLLYM | SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WEDDING AT PALMETTO HISTORICAL PARK | FLORIDA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Kyle and Wyllym met when they were working on a production of The Wizard of Oz together. Kyle was choreographing the show, and Wyllym was the Costume Designer. They beautifully incorporated sweet, subtle details from this part of their love story into their wedding day: a venue covered in brick pavers, blue and white checkered dress shirts, picnic basket centerpieces, yellow accents, and ruby red sneakers to remind everyone in attendance "there's no place like home"! 

Kyle and Wyllym walked each other down the aisle to the tune of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. The ceremony was personal and inspired many happy tears.

In summary, the Florida sun was bright, but Kyle and Wyllym’s love was brighter.
