Engagement Session in Key West – Jennifer and Marc

Engagement Session in Key West – Jennifer and Marc

The Winter months in Key West not only bring out the best clouds, they also bring Engagement sessions…which we love to shoot. So yes, Engagement Season is in full swing and we have had several really fun ones to shoot. It is so nice to meet our couples and actually get to shot them prior to their wedding. It allows us “click” better the couple and know how the fall into one another. Jennifer and Marc traveled down from New York for their Key West Engagement session and a little Key West relaxation. Wedding planning is tough work and very taxing on the mind…lol…nothing Key West can’t fix.

Although, we had some extreme cloud coverage, we made the best of it and challenged our inner creative and artistic talents to give the couple some very different looking images. For more of our engagement work in Key West and at various other destinations check out our Engagement Page  and our Awards Page on our website. We wish Jennifer and Marc all the best and cannot wait for their big day!

Documentary Family Photography is a such a great way to capture real life events and real motions. When most people think of a baby shower, they think boring straight forward flash lit portraits. Well, we took a different approach for Ceci's baby...

Key West Wedding – Ocean Key Resort – Andrea & Evan

     Meet Andrea and Evan, who come to Key West for their fabulous Ocean Key Resort Wedding. They were so blessed to have their wedding reception on the brand new pier at the Ocean Key, which is a beautiful landmark in the Key West Harbor…and one heck of a reception location. For those who don’t know the pier was damaged during Hurricane Irma and was completely rebuilt and even more awesome than before. 

     Can we just start off and say how perfect the weather was! Yes, there was cloud coverage but it kept it nice and cool and made for some amazing “Creative Portraits/Sunset Shots”. Even in the winter months Key West can still be a little warm, but less humid! Either way the day was absolutely perfect, with no rain, a slight breeze and minimal humidity!

    The couple were super easy going and allowed us to “do our thing”, low pressure documentary wedding photography. They even built in some time for us to do a little creative portrait action with them. Don’t get us wrong, we are documentary, but we can shoot a hella awesome creative portrait.

It’s always great to work with outstanding Key West Wedding Vendors such as Milan Event for the Flowers and Decor and Jenn from Simply You Weddings for all the little details and  super smooth flow throughout the day! Instead of a gallery we decided to put together a video montage of a handful of some fun images from their wedding day. Enjoy!!!

David and Julie Studio Julie!

Congratulations to all of the couples out there that recently got Engaged!

The start of a new year also marks that start of Engagement season. So why not head down to Key West and let us document your Engagement session. We love to meet up with our couples anytime they are in town. It is a nice time to catch up and with each other and touch base about the big day. Most couples who are planning a Key West Wedding visit several times prior to tying the knot! Most reasons are the completion of their booking of services, such as florist, cake…oh and let’s not forget the tastings.

There are plenty of reasons to visit

During one of these visits is the perfect time to squeeze in an Engagement session. With our candid style an low pressure fun approach to engagement photography. It really turns out to be a really great session, which often ends in us all having dinner and drink somewhere…lol

Katie and Enrique – Hemingway House Wedding

Katie and Enrique – Hemingway House Wedding

Katie & Enrique

Ernest Hemingway House

Umm can we say, “Love is in the Air”! Meet Katie and Enrique, just an amazing couple who’s love for one another and family took center point at their very special Key West Wedding at the world famous Ernest Hemingway House in Old Town Key West. 

We absolutely love that they threw traditions out of the window to start the day with…by getting ready together…um LOVE!!! They still kept each other surprised, with the dress reveal and a few other fun things between the couple. Katie wanted a sunset wedding ceremony with little interruption between the ceremony cocktail and the reception…such our bride! 

With two Key West landmarks as their backdrop (Hemingway House and the Key West Lighthouse), this one of the prettiest and most romantic ceremonies that we had seen. Between, the hand off of the bride, the ring bearer and Rusty Lemmon on acoustic guitar this was the perfect Key West Wedding moment!

Katie’s “little formality” flow, worked like a charm as guest headed to an amazing cocktail hour around Ernest Hemingway’s private pool, which is the largest pool in downtown Key West!  As guest made their way to the uncovered reception, where the night sky was fully visible Great Events was putting the final touched on the most amazing outdoor food station. The pictures simply do not do it justice. 

Once the family blessing was complete, guest indulged on libations and food, with no interruption as Katie did not want a first dance, or cake cutting…she wanted a party where all her close friends and family could just have a great time under the night sky. That is exactly what she got, finishing the night with the perfect song just how she envisioned. “Africa” by Toto, with the couple encircled by their friends and family.

Danielle & Joey – Ocean Key Resort Wedding

Danielle & Joey – Ocean Key Resort Wedding

Danielle & Joey

Ocean Key Resort

“I find the unrehearsed, unconscious aspects of life the most beautiful to photograph, as they are most open to interpretation, to a narrative.” A quotation by Arne Svenson that best describes why I love photography so much, for Danielle and Joey it was the “unrehearsed, unconscious aspects…” that made their wedding so memorable.

Danielle and Joey came to us all the way from South Florida…already familiar with our work, as we shot a wedding held at her father’s house 7-years ago. They were excited to have us capture their special moment, so much that they signed up for a full day of coverage, allowing us plenty of time to snap a number of spectacular images.

The beautiful celebration took place  at the Ocean Key Resort & Spa in Key West, FL; a southernmost subtropical paradise. It is here where I was greeted by the gorgeous bride, mother and bridesmaids, all in their wedding-colored robes. The mood, as expected, was very sweet and playful, a lot like the the cakes Danielle featured as a semi-finalist for TLC’s Next Great Baker. As they all prepared, the bridesmaids drank from mason jars and the bride danced and sang into a hairbrush doubling as a microphone. The party had begun for these girls.

However, on the other side of the hotel the dapper groomsmen celebrated and cheered with their copper Moscow mule cups in their cream and turquoise ensemble. They laughed and teased the excited, yet nervous, groom who was anxious to get things started.

The ceremony was held at the resort’s Ocean Terrace, where guests feasted their eyes across the scenic waterfront view. Moments later that view would be replaced by the stunning bride in her breathtaking tiered-dress, escorted down the isle by her proud dad to her handsome groom. She looked radiant, and Joey charming in his cream colored tux. Once together they both looked so happy and in love. It was really sweet.

Married by a personal friend, the nuptials celebrated the bride and groom individually and as a couple.  As they held hands and stared adoringly into each others eyes, there were heartwarming and ticklish stories of love and friendship, something the guests really enjoyed by the sound of laughter throughout.

After the vows were exchanged and the groom kissed his bride, it was off to the reception at the Sunset Pier surrounded by Key West’s turquoise water. Two houses divided, Danielle and Joey entered the reception to the Florida Gator Anthem (Danielle’s alma mater) and the Florida Seminole Anthem (Joey’s alma mater). Cheers and boos greeted them on the dance floor depending each guests’ colors. Whatever side you were on it was a great way to get the crowd going and celebration started. Soon followed the great toasts given by the best man and maid of honor, both of which brought lots of awes and laughter. Following the traditional father-daughter/mother-son dances, the seated couple was hoisted into the air by the guests as they danced around them. It was pure entertainment.

After all the food, drinks and dancing were enjoyed, it was time to say goodbye and send off the couple with a sprinkle shower that included over 100lbs of cake sprinkles thrown at them during their going away dance. Danielle was in HEAVEN, but exhausted. When they went back to their hotel room, while Joey ate some snacks and caught up on sports, she passed out on his shoulder with a smile. Her dream wedding had finally come true! She couldn’t have been any happier.

And luckily we were there to witness it all.
