Engagements & Weddings
Welcome and thank you for checking out our blog post. This entry is dedicated to our Feb. 3, 2018, bride and groom Selika & Johnie. They were married this past weekend at the Sunken Gardens, located in downtown St. Petersburg, FL. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding surrounded by all types of colorful scenery. Winter weddings in Florida are never an issue here because it never gets extremely cold. That’s way destination weddings to Florida should always be considered.
Other vendors that assisted in making this beautiful day happen are listed below. Check out their websites and definitely consider using one of them for your wedding day as well. You will not be disappointed.

I had the honor of capturing Evelyn’s and Anthony’s beautiful day after Thanksgiving wedding. It was located on one of the most beautiful golf course in the Tampa Metro area. I teamed up with my good friend CJ Bryant to capture this epic event.
Date: October 29, 2017
Location: Marriott, St Petersburg – Clearwater
I had the pleasure of working with TheXpos and Truly Forever Bridal during a Bridal Expo at the Marriott in St. Petersburg. I captured a few of their beautiful wedding dresses that they were displaying for brides in the Tampa metro area. Even with the large amount of dresses that they had displayed, this was still only scratching the surface of the amount and variety of dress that they have available for brides to try on for their big day. They also have a large selection of dresses available for bridesmaid dresses, as well as mother of the bridal dresses. If you are still looking for your dress, check out Truly Forever Bridal, you won’t be disappointed.

Bride & Groom: Nancy & David
Date: September 29, 2017
Location: National Harbor, Oxon, Maryland (Washington D.C.)
I had the extreme pleasure of capturing Nancy’s & David’s beautiful fall wedding at the National Harbor in Washington D.C. I’ve traveled to many locations and captured countless amounts of beautiful weddings, but I had never done a wedding in the Washington D.C. area before. I must say that it was truly a great experience to have the ability to take wedding photos with Capital as the backdrop. There really are some truly beautiful places to visit and shoot there. I appreciated working with my great friend and one of the best photographers in the industry, Brandon Hunter. We have worked together on a few projects, but we have started working together a lot more as of let. Look out for the two of us in 2018. We have a few plans that we are going to put into motion.

I had the pleasure of capturing BJ’s and Maggie’s fantastic wedding at the Mahaffey Theater the other day.
