Anh + Scott {The Vault, Wedding in Tampa}

Hello friends!

We are so excited to share this wedding at the new and modern Vault venue in Tampa!  We love how they kept the historical elements from this building that used to be a bank in downtown Tampa, and brought it current to be a gorgeous and very rad place to be married.  Anh and Scott won our hearts with their eclectic personalities and Anh’s awesome eye for style.   We were also thrilled to work with the brilliant ladies and our friends at Burkle Events.  They brought this gorgeous day together and made it remarkable for our couple.   Some of you may know that Erin is a Mid Century Modern fanatic, so she was flipping ecstatic to shoot this venue and all of it’s design.   Our favorites from the day: Anh’s Wo-man of honor helping her get ready, their multi-cultural families coming together as one, Scott’s emotional reaction to seeing Anh at their first look, that Scott looks so much like Beck (one of our favorite musical artists of all time),  the artwork that they created together during the ceremony by combining bright colors of paint, the awesome flower wall that Anh handmade for her photobooth (which she has kindly let us use in our boudoir studio recently) , oh and stealth-fully trying to avert a drunk lady downtown during their pictures (we got skills and now looking back it was pretty funny).  Good times!!

Cheers,

Erin and Liz

Cara + Travis {Married} Family Horse Farm, Brooksville FL

Let me start out by saying we have the best freakin’ couples ever. EVER.

These two would have danced in the rain. That is just the type of people Cara and Travis are. And man did it rain this day.

But the rain did not stop over 300 guests, family and friends, from traveling to her grandparent’s property that was once a horse farm managed by her Grandpa, to celebrate the amazing love and relationship that these guys have.

So, I will keep the written story short and let the story we documented that day tell all.


A big huge “Thank You” to Shipra Panosian  from Erin and I for being there shooting with me. You are such a pleasant, fun and extremely talented person and photographer, so kind-hearted and inspirational and I cannot wait for the next opportunity that we get to hang out together.

And to Adair with Dairing Events in Jacksonville for not only being there as a bridesmaid and best friend to Cara, but for also being the wedding planner for your dear sister-friend. You too were full of energy, love and sweetness, and you were so willing to help out making sure that everything ran smoothly for everyone. You are a blessing and extremely talented at what you do. I know we will work with you again!

Cheers,

Liz

Monika + Patrick {Bok Tower Gardens Engagement Session}

Monika and Patrick showed up with macaroons for me and sweets for my little ones on the day of their engagement session.   They knew we had just returned from shooting in Paris and wanted me to have a sweet reminder, and to thank me for the time we were about to have.  That thoughtful and sweet gesture should tell you everything you need to know about them.  And the photos below will tell you of their love for each other.

See below for Fun.  Adventure.  Hand Fishing for Koi.  And Kissing in the Rain.

Cheers and lots of love,

Erin

Alina & David {MARRIED} Ybor City Museum

FUN. F-U-N.

David just wanted to make sure that all of his friends and family had fun. He actually said that he didn’t want it to be a “bummer”.

No worries, David, it was not even close.

All of the sentimental details, all of the vibrant colors and handmade paper flowers, the good drinks and food and a sweets table to die for. How could you go wrong?

Most importantly, they had Love. And Fun.

That’s what we love in our couples and that’s what we look for when we read all of the stories that couples share with us. Because anyone can shoot details and tablescapes. But to be a part of an amazing experience, one that is different every single time we shoot and to be around people that are real and in love and happy and having fun and get what we do, that is sweet and pure joy right there.

Bravo to these guys for sure!
