Salvador Dali Museum Wedding | Meaghen and Richie May | 02 | 2013

Meaghen and Richie were just as content to run away together and avoid a big wedding event. Worrying and fussing over such a production did not seem to reflect the depth of this couple who would rather focus on their new life together than being the center of attention.  Going the full event route they decided to have their somewhat un-traditional wedding at St. Petersburg’s Salvador Dali Museum. The unusual  ceremony location took place on the circular staircase that is the focal point of the interior. No wedding isle or typical layout from what most would expect, and for me as well as the guests there was an excitement in the air with an almost  stadium like atmosphere.  Outside the museum produced nothing short of  spectacular visuals for photography and the artsy surroundings for an elegant outdoor reception. Below are a few favorites and a slide show. Special thanks my second shooter Shem Parsons,  the entire staff at the Salvador Dali Museum, DJ Eric with Grand Hemond and Associates, officiant Tom Greene and florals by Delmas, the Flower Booth.

St. Petersburg engagement shoot | Elizabeth and Darin April | 24 | 2013

Elizabeth, Darin and I spent a couple of hours shooting engagement photos in downtown St. Petersburg FL as a warm up to their Vinoy Wedding in July.  They are a lot of fun to watch because very quickly they seem to forget I am there and just interact with each other in such a natural way, I can’t wait for this wedding.

Sandpearl Wedding Clearwater Beach, FL | Allison and Ben April | 12 | 2013

Allison and Ben are as laid back as a wedding couple can get.  With all that happens on a wedding day the second Allison headed down they seem locked into each other and nothing else mattered. For 30 minutes aside from vows and rings it was like no one else was there. Below are a few favorites and the slide show. Special thanks to Michelle and the entire Sandpearl resort staff, Florals and décor by the Brides bouquet.
