Hey friends! I've missed you! A couple weekends off in a row means this blog has been quiet and I just don't love that. But I'm back to tell you about my awesome quick trip to Florida to photograph the STUNNING Cynthia and Tim!
Seriously, Cynthia. I quite possibly overdid the bridal portraits in this wedding but I couldn't help it. You'll see.
I mean come on! Hair. Dress. Flowers. Swagger. It's all perfection!
Hey, Tim! You're bringing your A game, too!
One of my favorite bridesmaid shots of this year. Also, about 10 seconds after we got posed for photos, we hear a DOWNPOUR of rain heading our way.
We just barely made it to a garage that was attached to the reception tent, and you better believe I made Cynthia pose in that garage! Favorites!
Thankfully the rain stopped and it was time to get married!
Love this. Cynthia and Tim have the biggest hearts and you can tell.
Wedding days hardly ever go as planned. Things were running behind this time, and after the ceremony I was well aware that we were losing daylight FAST. I'm not exaggerating when I say these are the FASTEST portraits I have ever taken in my life! I checked the time stamps on the photos, we did all bride and groom, bridal party, and family portraits in 24 minutes.
This group made it work!
The one on the right is my fave!
Seriously how gorgeous are they?
Despite the insane heat and humidity, this pair DANCED more than any other I've ever seen!
Thank you both so much for letting me have fun with you on your awesome day!

Advice for future Brides and Grooms: Getting engaged and married in exactly 2 months, and being under the circumstances we were, made us realize that you need to focus on the BIG, important things and not sweat about the small stuff. We knew from the beginning that the wedding was going to be amazing regardless of our circumstances because we would be with our closes family and friends. But we also knew that our future marriage was more important than the celebration itself. Of course, enjoy the day and the people you are with, but in preparation for the big day, never lose focus on the importance of the life you will live with your spouse. That’s what the celebration is all about, right?
