Skarlen and Dennis’ Wedding

A June outdoor wedding in South Florida means worrying about whether or not it’s going to rain and obsessively watching the weather forecast for the week leading up to your big day, and hourly the day of.  Lucky for this couple, while the skies were overcast by the time of the ceremony in the afternoon, the rain did not fall.  They got married under a big tree at Plantation Heritage park, where we had taken their engagement photos a few weeks before.  The bridal party was into their group shots afterwards, and even wore superhero shirts under their formal attire.  It’s a totally popular trend these days, thanks to Pinterest, but who doesn’t love a good Pinterest-inspired photographic trend!? 

Then it was off to Tropical Acres steakhouse in Davie, FL for the celebration, where the bridal party gave me great entrance photos, and had fun dancing with this happy pair.  Skarlen had also requested a sparkler exit, and a light painting photo, which add to the special moments captured on their special day.  Congratulations!

Skarlen and Dennis’ Engagement Session

This adorable couple will be tying the knot next month, so we met at the park where they will be getting married so they could have some before and after photos at this spot.  Skarlen had told me she hates pictures of herself, so I was determined to create some images she would like. And Dennis really knows how to make her laugh (and apparently so do I), which led to some great smiles. I can't wait to see (and photograph) more of them on your wedding day!

Carter’s 1st Birthday Party at Plantation Heritage Park

I had the pleasure of first meeting Carter and his mom at his buddy Jacob’s 1st Birthday party a few weeks earlier.  But on October 12, it was Carter’s turn to celebrate his birthday with family and friends.  Fully taking advantage of the cooler South Florida fall weather (read 80s instead of 90s), the party took place at a park, under the shade of a beautiful big tree with a lovely lake and clear blue skies as a backdrop.  When the breeze blew, it almost felt like fall!  Carter started off the afternoon with some tears, but when bubbles were blown and he had something to eat, he showed us what a great smile he has!  Happy birthday little man – so glad I was there to capture these moments for you!
