Though I am based in Key West, I do wedding photography all over South Florida and the Keys. Each area in Florida has its own vibe and feel, and Sam and Charlie chose Coral Gables for their fun yet elegant wedding ceremony and reception.
If you’re just beginning to plan a wedding and you are considering South Florida, Miami or the Florida Keys for your wedding then you’re going to want to check out my article here, it’s full of good information from my many years of photographing weddings in this area.
Back to Sam and Charlie! I met these two at a wedding I photographed here in Key West, and when we first connected on the phone when they called to talk about me photographing their Miami wedding, I knew we were a great fit. They are the kind of people who just live life big, and who aren’t afraid to drop their guard down. Having a great party at their wedding was one of their priorities, and I am always there for that.
They took advantage of the fact that I offer engagement sessions all over South Florida, so I hopped in the car and drove up to Coral Gables, and we did their session at the Matheson Hammock Park. I knew at this session that their wedding was going to be spectacular because the advice I had given them about just being themselves and being in the moment was not a problem for them. They let their natural, fun-loving personalities shine through, and we had a great time.
