(The above is one of my favs of the year so far... taken on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial)
To say our trip to DC was great is simply selling it short. The sights were fantastic and the two E-Shoots I did were even better. The first shoot was with Mike and Michelle. They wanted to capture some of the locations that had meaning in their life together like Dupont Circle where both of them have spent a lot of time, to the bridge at the Tidal Basin where they shared their first kiss. This shoot was full of romance and exploration not to mention wind and cold. Michelle was a trooper in her dress braving the (to me as a Florida-boy anyway) bitter cold of the day and she looked fantastic doing it. More from the trip in general and the 2nd E-Shoot later!
So beautiful indeed. Fantastic couple and the most utterly spectacular location I have ever shot at, especially in... Florida. Yes, this fantastic place is in Florida. Lauryn and Michael had Bella Collina in Clermont, Florida on their list of ceremony/reception sites but their guest count ruled it out. Though they aren't having their wedding there, the place with it's pure Italian beauty captivated them so much they wanted to do their E-Shoot there. I could not have been happier.
Needless to say, with all that hype, the shots better live up, and I really think they do. Lauryn and Michael were ready, willing and very able to explore this gem of a Florida location and with any luck at all, together we realized their Tuscan dreams.
For the record, if you are having your wedding at Bella Collina, I will give you a spectacular deal to be your photographer, that's how much I love this place. I have also been told by Stacy, the Membership and Events Coordinator at Bella Collina that they have prime dates available and as I've said with my services, you should NOT be afraid to ask how this fantastic location can fit into your wedding dreams. You may be surprised. Contact Stacy at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 407-469-4911 for more info. As with all my referrals, I don't get anything for sending you their way other than the possible chance to work there in the future, which I would consider a blessing.
