Stacey and Max were referred to me by a friend of theirs and I'm so glad. I had an amazing time getting to know the couple and capturing the love they have for each other, which was clearly on display during their wedding day.
We started at the historic Dr. Phillips house in downtown Orlando, where Max and his wedding party got ready down in the basement ( They have a basement... so cool, I'm a Florida boy lol) And Stacey and her wedding party had one of the large rooms on the second floor. The staff was kind enough to open up the round room on the top floor so that we could hang the dress and get some great detail photos up there.
The amount of love in the air that day was remarkable and there were so many happy tears that even I couldn't keep it together. It was wonderful to watch the couple stare into each others eyes as they expressed their hand written vows. I don't think they stopped smiling at each other once the entire time.
After the couple said I do, we captured a few family portraits before using the historic mansion as a backdrop for some stunning wedding portraits. Stacey and Max were so comfortable in front of the camera that we were able to grab photos in a variety of locations. The reception was held indoors while the back porch and patio area were utilized as dance floors. Their first dance was sweet and romantic, the speeches were heartfelt and funny and everyone tore it up on the dance floor. before the night was over we were able to grab a few night portraits using the gazebo they stood under for the ceremony, I love how romantic the photo feels of just the couple together at night. Once the night was over all the guest lined up in front of the venue and said goodbye to Stacey and Max with a sparkler send off.
Thank you Stacey and Max for allowing me to capture the magic of your wedding day, I wish you all the best as you start this new journey together :)
