Favorite Moments of 2012

January 2, 2013

Wow! 2012 was quite a year! When we started reviewing all of our weddings and engagement sessions from the past year, I kept saying, “Wait – that was THIS year??” It has been a long, incredible year filled with some wonderful memories with sweet couples (and their amazing friends and families)!

We began and ended the year in south Florida (almost ended up being the same venue!). It was a great start and a great end, and everything in between was equally awesome! There were countless moments of laughter, tears, and a ton of kisses! We traveled across the U.S. and the Caribbean. There were rainbows and sunsets of every color, oceans and mountains (and even a shoot in the desert). Our couples said, “I do!” in the churches they grew up in, with their toes in the sand, and in beautiful gardens. Their nuptials followed the customs of different religions, and they carried on family traditions (some even started new ones). Most of them were just beginning their lives together, while one special couple celebrated 25 beautiful years of marriage with a vow renewal! Each wedding was so unique and special, but all of them full of LOVE!

2012 was also a year of big changes for us. This past summer, we decided to make the huge move from Florida to California. It’s so crazy to think we used to fly out here for weddings, and now we’re doing the reverse! We really ove being wedding wedding photographers in Temecula! We spent almost 200 hours traveling for weddings in 2012 (whoa!). Fortunately, Matt and I are travel junkies, and the distance only made it even sweeter to see our couples again!

When we collected our favorite photos from the past year, we felt that there was one song that tied all the special memories and all the travel together. Warm and special thanks to all of our 2012 couples for allowing us to share your joy! This song is dedicated to you!

And to our 2013 couples, we look forward to all the wonderful new memories we’ll make together! Cheers to the new beginnings and new adventures! : )

We always have a lot of fun with our couples but some of them are just pure FUN. Because Leslie & David love a good time, they planned their dream wedding at Iberostar Rose Hall Beach Hotel in Montego Bay, Jamaica because it promised to be an amazing party!

As the time for the ceremony drew near, resort guests grabbed a seat to witness the event. When Leslie stepped out in her stunning ruffled gown, David’s eyes filled with tears as he watched the love of his life walk towards him. There were lots of happy tears going around that day, as well as tons of laughter and smiles!

The celebration continued with a quiet dinner with all their guests, including some heartfelt (and some hilarious) speeches. But the highlight of the evening was definitely the bonfire on the beach with the steel drum band. At one point, Leslie was dancing with David and just broke down in tears. I can only imagine how overwhelmed with joy she was as she looked around at those she loved most, including her new hubby, and soaked in the moment. Does it really get any more perfect?

Leslie & David are getting ready for Part 2 of their celebration back home in Canada. We hope that everyone has a great time remembering all those special moments that made the trip to Jamaica so memorable! Congratulations to two very sweet an amazing people! We raise our glasses of Red Stripe to you! <3 Iberostar-Rose-Hall-Wedding-Photos-Jamaica-01.jpg

Favorite Moments of 2011

January 20, 2012

I know it seems kinda late to share the highlights of our 2011 wedding season, but this has been such a hard project to put together. Part of the reason is that 2012 totally grabbed us by the hand and took us running full force! We ended 2011 on New Year’s Eve and started 2012 with a wedding the very next weekend! We launched our wedding photography giveaway on January 1st. We went to New Orleans for the ImagingUSA convention. We’re also in the process of opening our studio and launching our new website, in addition to streamlining our workflow so we can be more efficient in our business. We have barely blinked, and we find ourselves in late January! How did that happen?!

Another reason why it has taken so long to share this post is that it’s a challenge to summarize what an amazing year we had in a video with less than 6 minutes. Choosing our favorite images out of the thousands that we captured is almost an impossible task. I can’t even begin to count the moments that have captured our hearts – your beauty, your laughter, your tears – your hilarious moments of rocking it out on the dance floor (because who cares if the world is watching as long as you are having a great time!). We look at everything that has happened, all the precious moments that we have witnessed and shared with such amazing people, and it’s overwhelming. So many people tell us they love our photos, but over and over I say that the beautiful part of the images is not what we captured. It’s what all of you have given – how you’ve let us in to see who you truly are – that makes these images both meaningful and beautiful!

Okay, so admittedly we also got to shoot against some breathtaking scenery! We had the opportunity to shoot 3 weddings in California, thanks to some wonderful people (you know who you are)! We traveled to a quaint town in the mountains of Colorado to shoot a wedding at 10,000 feet! We raced a hurricane to shoot a lovely wedding on the coast of Maine and shot some of the most beautiful wedding photos ever in a place I never imagined – a cemetery! Seriously, beautiful images can happen ANYWHERE with good light and a couple in love! They can also happen with incredible sunsets on the cliffs of Negril, which is where Lisa & Omar hosted their closest friends and family for a destination wedding at Moon Dance Cliffs! Their stunning wedding is featured in the January/February 2012 issue of Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine (on shelves now!). And of course, we bounced around the entire state of Florida to capture weddings from Jax to the Panhandle, to south Florida and the west coast. Though we love to travel, it’s just as exciting to shoot weddings right here in our home state!

So after more than a month of reviewing photos from the past year and 9 revisions of the final video, we are so thrilled to finally present to you our Favorite Moments of 2011. I knew it was ready to present when the tears started to fall. Thank you to all of our wonderful couples for the year of memories!

We have the perfect wedding to get you in a holiday mood! We are completely loving Suzanne & Scott’s gorgeous winter wedding at The Hilliard Mansion! This wedding is packed with sweet southern charm (complete with mason jars, burlap, lace, and a barn reception). Mix that with purple and green wintery elements (including a hot chocolate bar!! Love!!) and you have one of the cutest weddings imaginable! And really, who cannot fall in love with a wedding where the couple brought a tree stump to sit the programs on? Pure awesomeness!

From the moment we heard Suzanne & Scott’s love story, we became huge fans of theirs! Like we were literally cheering them on! And it’s clear that their family and friends are all cheering them on, too! From all the tears and smiles on their wedding day, it’s clear that they are very much loved by everyone and family and friends are of the highest importance to them. And while all the cute decorations and pretty lights make this wedding visually inspiring, it’s the couple that truly makes this wedding beautiful!

We had such a great time shooting this wedding and getting to know such a wonderful couple! We hope that you’ll always remember all the little moments that made this day perfect! Congratulations Suzanne & Scott!

Tey & Mike couldn’t have chosen a more perfect day for their October wedding at Palm Valley Gardens. Across a quiet pond, underneath an old tree, friends and family gathered to share in this special day. There were tears, and there were smiles. There were words of wisdom, and there was a collective blessing of the couple by everyone in attendance. The ceremony was full of personal elements, including singing, Mike’s children doing readings and lighting candles, a cord and veil ceremony, and a blanket with photos of Tey & Mike through the years (with room to add more photos as their story continues). What also made the ceremony even more special was having Tey’s aunt and uncle officiate the ceremony together. It was just a perfect ceremony with so many personal touches that brought everyone together.

We were so excited that Tey & Mike chose to do a first look before their ceremony. We love first looks because of how intimate they are. Mike waited on a little wooden bridge and Tey walked up behind him through a gorgeous wooden gate. It was so cute watching Tey peek out at Mike and then see how overcome with emotion they both were. Their love for each other is inspiring!

The cocktail hour featured signature drinks and hand-rolled cigars, while Tey, Mike, and the wedding party gave us their best GQ poses. Then everyone adjourned to a fun-filled reception featuring table cards with “Love” written in different languages, a cookie table, and lots of dancing! After some very heartfelt speeches, Tey & Mike took turns dancing with their parents and their inlaws! What a great way to bring both families together!

We can’t describe Tey & Mike’s wedding as anything less than perfect and we’re so happy that we could be there to share it with them. Everyone at the wedding, from family to friends, were amazing to work with, and it truly was a celebration of two people totally in love with each other. Congratulations to you both! : )

Every wedding and every couple is special to us, but this particular one is special for a different reason. The bride, Melissa, happens to be my cousin! We were so excited to hear that she and her fiance Brian had chosen to do a destination wedding in Bonita Springs. Everyone came down to Florida from Pittsburgh to celebrate their wedding at The Club at Barefoot Beach just before sunset. As everyone processed down the aisle to live music by Bill Beck, the tears started to fall. The tears turned into giggles when Lexie, the most adorable “flower girl” ever, came running down the aisle. As Missy & Brian held hands and spoke their vows to one another, their voices choked a little, and they could no longer stop the tears from falling.

While everyone went inside the Club for the cocktail hour, Missy & Brian walked along the beach and enjoyed a brilliant sunset. As the sun started to fade past the horizon of the Gulf, the sky grew brighter and bolder with pops of orange and pink. You couldn’t ask for a better sunset!

The reception was full of laughter and fun times, and even though the wedding was in Florida it was definitely a Pittsburgh reception! Toward the end of the night everyone danced to the Steelers Polka (I had to sneak a little video clip on my phone – see below their slideshow). It was a fun time. At one point Matt turned to me and said “We really need to make another trip up there.” He’s not even from there and I think he’s homesick! : )

It was so great seeing everyone and being part of Missy’s wedding! I promised (or threatened?) Missy that I was going to post a pic of us when we were babies:

Some things never change… you were always the pretty one! You looked stunning on your wedding day, and it’s clear that you and Brian are perfect together! Matt and I wish you both much love and happiness ALWAYS! Congratulations! : )

We love seeing familiar faces at weddings, so we were so excited when Jamie, the sister of one of our past brides, Jackie, contacted us about shooting her wedding! Jamie & Chris chose the beautiful and quaint Hilltop Restaurant to host their wedding. The antique furniture, paintings, and chandeliers give The Hilltop so much charm, and it’s a gorgeous place for a wedding! Jamie got ready in the Library, with Danelle Wood doing makeup and hair for all the girls!

The ceremony was officiated by David from River City Weddings. Some words of wisdom, an exchange of vows, and a kiss later, Jamie & Chris were married! Everyone giggled when Jamie started to put Chris’s ring on the wrong hand. Not sure if he was tricking her or if they were so caught up in the moment that they forgot, but seeing everyone laugh together warmed our hearts. Following the ceremony, we took Jamie and Chris to the garden for photos among the koi pond and luscious greenery.

We enjoyed working with DJ Jake Harris again at this wedding. Highlights of the reception included teary-eyed and humorous speeches by the Made of Honor and the “Best Man of Honor.” They also had an anniversary dance, but I think it was Jamie & Chris’s last dance to Adam Sandler’s “Grow Old With You” that really captured all the emotion of the day.

Now that Jamie & Chris are back from their incredible honeymoon, we’re excited to share some memories from their wonderful wedding day! We also want to take a moment to wish Jackie & Zac a happy anniversary! They will be celebrating two years of marriage next week!

Congratulations Jamie & Chris! : )

We hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Matt and I did some more work around the house. It’s so weird having two weekends completely off, so we’ve been utilizing our free time to install new floors in our house! It has been fun just spending time at home with the hubs working on our home!

Since we don’t have a new wedding to share this week, I thought I would post a slideshow that I just created for Lisa & Omar’s destination wedding in Negril. Last month, they joined their closest friends and family for a wedding at Moon Dance Cliffs. Everything about this wedding was incredible, so we hope that these images give you some inspiration to start off your week! : D



I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We’re excited to start this week off with an announcement from our friends at Storymix! They are giving away a FREE wedding video package worth $500!

Storymix is a unique service. They aren’t videographers. They mix YOUR videos into a professionally edited video (because who really wants to watch hours and hours of raw video?). And with this amazing package, they actually send you HD cameras so that friends and family can record your wedding memories to be sent back to Storymix and be turned into a work of art, like this sample video below:



How fun is that?!!

So go to their Facebook page and click on the FREE VIDEO tab to sign up! There’s also information there about ways for you to get even more entries into the contest! The deadline to enter is this Friday, July 1th!

Best of luck, brides!! : )
