I recently had the pleasure of shooting Elana and Dave's engagement photos in the Boynton Beach/Delray Beach area. We had a great time roaming around finding different neat and interesting areas to shoot at.

As a South Florida wedding photographer, I always look forward to shoots that take me to a variety of different locations. The great thing about shooting in this area, is that there really is a wide variety of backgrounds that allow for fabulous shots. Elana and Dave were terrific to worth with, and had some fun ideas of their own that we worked together to execute – including the sort of cartoony shot with the balloons.

I'm really looking forward to Elana and Dave's upcoming wedding at Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton. They selected this location because Elana's parents live there and they loved it from the moment they saw it. Their wedding colors will be hunter green and gold, Elana's favorites. Weddings at Woodfield Country Club are always a pleasure to photograph. It is one of South Florida's most beautiful country clubs and definitely a gem in Boca Raton. There are many Boca Raton weddings, but Woodfield Country Club stands out as one the premiere venues in South Florida.

It is a really great idea to do an engagement shoot when you hire a South Florida wedding photographer. What better way to get used to working together? You'll be spending a lot of time with your wedding photographer on your big day, so you want to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Doing a South Florida engagement shoot is definitely a great way to get a feel for taking photos with a professional photographer who is providing some direction.

I hope you enjoy this glimpse of Elana and Dave's South Florida engagement shoot!

NICOLE & DANIEL Grand Pink Lustre Wed, 09 Dec 2015 14:52:00 GMT
LOVESNicole & Daniel's big day was nothing short of luxurious. The stunning venue, gorgeous couple, and beautiful details all combined to create a wedding day that was stunningly grand and utterly breathtaking. Nicole & Daniel's outdoor ceremony embraced Miami's gorgeous coastal views, and we love that they took advantage of city's beautiful views. With the ocean ahead and large pink and ivory florals surrounding them, the pair said their vows to one another in a lovely, romantic ceremony. Before moving to celebrate with friends and family, the pair took a moment to capture some beautiful images with Jeff Kolodny Photography on the gorgeous staircase at the Four Seasons Palm Beach. While it's impossible to ignore the beauty of the ceremony, the reception space truly shined. Gold, pink, and ivory dominated the space which was lavishly decorated and lit. The towering, round centerpieces of pink and white roses and white hydrangeas added drama to the space, and we adore the golden linens and china. Nicole & Daniel's Miami wedding was truly spectacular, and we're so happy that we get to showcase such a lovely affair.

Gabri & Jeffrey's Destination Wedding at the Eau Palm Beach Wed, 12 Aug 2015 15:09:00 GMT
We recently photographed Gabri and Jeffrey's gorgeous wedding at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. This amazing couple lives in New York City and I asked them to tell me their story so that I couldshare it here.

Jeffrey is looking sharp!

Jeffrey and Gabri met in a serendipitous way in December of 2011 in the lobby of their Boston apartment building; later that day Jeffrey left a package for Gabri with a dog treat, his card, and a note saying "I was getting my dog treats and thought of you and Scarlet -Jeffrey" The two went on a date where they both ordered the same dish and had a wonderful time; from then on the two knew they had found something special.

Gabri and Jeffrey chose to have their wedding in Palm Beach, Florida because their grandparents live close by and otherwise would not have been able to attend their wedding. The two are very close with their grandparents and made their attendance and comfort a priority. They also loved the beautiful beach scenery.

Bling is always a good thing!

Gabri's very unique wedding gown was designed by Vera Wang accented by Jimmy Choo shoes.Jeffrey's tuxedo was by Ermengildo Zegna. Bridesmaids wore Amsale, Joanna August and Dessy.Team Beauti created the hair and make-up styles for the bride while her wedding band was fromGreenwich Jeweler and the groom's ring was by Tiffany.

Mike Sipe Entertainment kept the guests on their feet all night and Xquisite Events and FrostHandled all the flowers and décor for the affair. Cheryl Clisby & Co. were the event planners for the Wedding.

This South Florida Palm Beach wedding was also a destination wedding, as the bride and groom dolive in New York. Many couples from up North choose to have a Florida destination wedding, as either their parents or grandparents live here. It just makes sense. Also, it allows their guestsfrom out of town to come here to Florida and make somewhat of a vacation around thewedding. It works out well for everyone involved! Plus our year-round good weather is definitelya strong incentive as well. South Florida weddings are very popular among not only locals butalso many, many out of towners. Our clients often do not live here – in fact we have clients fromas far away as overseas! South Florida destination weddings hold much appeal especially for people who live in colder climates as well.

This wedding featured some really pretty details - a la Xquisite Events.

Just breathtaking!

Let's get this party started!

Mouthwatering cuisine by the Eau Resort Palm Beach Resort & Spa.

Yummy for sure...

We hope you've enjoyed this glimpse of Gabri and Jeffrey's wedding! We want to thank both ofthem and their families for including us on this very special day in their lives.

Andrea & Jesse's Boynton Beach Engagement Shoot Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:47:00 GMT I grabbed my camera and shot theses photos right around the corner from my house. Having some farmland and some really cool fountains close to home makes it east to grab a camera and make some fantastic photos.
