On Friday, December 1st, we were so lucky to be the ones to photograph the beautiful wedding of Carissa and Dominic at Ascension Catholic Church, followed by a reception at the Radisson Beachside Hotel. We could not have asked for a more perfect day for this couple, in fact, the entire day between these two families and friends coming together was filled with so much fun, laughter, tears and love.

The reception was themed to ring in the Christmas season, as it is Carissa’s favorite holiday. I was thrilled when she first told me her wedding was to be Christmas themed, but to see it all come together that day, was more incredible than I ever imagined and simply elegant. When I walked in to the ballroom at the Radisson, my eyes lit up and I smiled! What they did there was nothing short of pure magic. Guests were welcomed with some of the best Christmas music I have ever heard and they found themselves truly walking in a winter wonderland.

I am so excited to share some of my favorite images with all of you. My hope is that year from now, when Carissa and Dominic look back on these images, they can feel the emotional connection and the love and happiness they experienced on their wedding day and smile, because in their hearts, Christmas is year round when you get to spend every day with the one you love the most.

Thank you for having us, it was more than a pleasure to be there. To the happy couple, cheers and Merry Christmas.

This little Darlin’ was delightful to photograph today. Jocelyn was so sweet and easy with the smiles.  🙂 It was a special day for Jocelyn because it was actually her 5th Birthday! Thank you for visiting our studio today! We look forward to meeting sissy in January for her Birthday session.

Arrrrgh! This little Pirate is having a Pirate Birthday in a few weeks! We’ve been photographing Kaden since he was a few months old, it’s unbelievable that he’s turning 4. This session was a lot of fun. I always love when we get to use the Pirate Set. 🙂 Happy Birthday Kaden!

One last post before bed…We met Dawn Reprogel about 6 years ago at a preschool we work at in West Melbourne, where her youngest son attended for a few years. The first time we met, Christian was under two years old, now he is 7 and Zach is 13! What’s special about Dawn, and she may not know this, but hers was one of the very first families to visit our studio when we first opened, that wasn’t a friend of ours. A legit, called us up and booked us, REAL studio session, when we first opened. She loved our work at the school and wanted to have her family photographed by us as well.

Fast forward to now, Dawn and her family have become part of our family over the years, and we have watched her kids grow into little men through our lenses and our eyes. Both of our families have crazy busy lives, we don’t get to see each other as often as we should, but when we do, we always have such a great time together (you can see from some of these images, we are a bunch of goofballs together!). I always look forward to our next sessions and I am grateful to have such a wonderful family in our lives.
