Simone and Ryans wedding in Key West on Sunset Key with a rainbow!

The Florida Keys has many wedding venues.  Just about all of them have a beach, a palm tree, and water.  That’s what you should expect coming to a chain of islands.  When you get to Key West, Florida, the southernmost key, you still haven’t gone far enough.  There are other islands, only accessible by boat, where magical wedding happen.  That island is called Sunset Key.  A private island sitting in the harbor of Key West, you take a ferry over, and then you are graced with a stillness.  A peace.  Tranquility.  It’s the type of environment that any wedding photographer would want to be a part of.

The two of them stayed at Old Town Manor, and had their first look there too.  We then headed over to Truman Annex to wait for the ferry over to Sunset Key for the wedding.  Upon our arrival I got a text from the planner saying there was a perfect rainbow over the Key West Harbor.  We sprinted, Simone seemed to hover over the ground, to the harborside and created an image the two of them will remember for years.  The ceremony was intimate, heartfelt and perfect.  You could see how much these two cared for each other by listening to their words and tone.  Once the ceremony was complete we boarded a Fury Key West catamaran for sunset.  Local musician Chris Toler played acoustic guitar and while we cruised the harbor for cocktail hour.  Afterwards we headed over to First Flight for a reception that got a bit crazy.  Congrats to these two!  Tell your guests thank you for bringing it on the dancefloor!

Documentary Destination Wedding Photography

Having a Destination Wedding and are looking for a photographer to document the emotion of your day? In that case, I’d love to talk to you more about your plans. My style of photography is best suited for people who are drawn to natural and honest moments and want their day documented unobtrusively.  If that sounds like what you are looking for, let’s talk! Your wedding photos shouldn’t look like everyone else’s. A documentary approach means photos that are real and true to you and the day that unfolds. Some call it photojournalism, candid, or modern wedding photography. I am not concerned with fitting into a mold or genre, but instead, my wedding photography style is capturing the energy, emotion and love your day entails
Tell me about your favorite coffee shop, how good/bad of a chef you are, your favorite vacation and anything else that makes you unique as a couple. Nobody enjoys filling out contact forms, including me. Drop me a line. No Destination Too Far!
