Carolyn and Phil's Bella Collina Wedding Photography

I'm so happy to share Carolyn and Philips sneak peek on my blog today!

First of all, let me tell you a bit about my girl Carolyn. She loves her dog Mio just as much as I love my baby Bindi (check out the adorable pictures below). We met through an event Planning company where she works while I was photographing an event for them at DR Phillips Center. 

We bonded during their engagement session at Bok Towers where we had quite the adventure! We got to enjoy a few long meals together after that! Carolyn is the most bubbly, stylish and kind hearted woman. And then there is Phil- funny, tall, handsome and Carolyn's love of her life. They are just the perfect pair and I was so honored to be their wedding photographer.

Phil and Carolyn met while both were working at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Fast forward a bit to a quiet day when both were off from work. Phil had prepared a beautiful breakfast for them to enjoy. She discovered that Mio had a ring tied to his neck. Phil then got down on one knee and asked Carolyn to spend the rest of her life with him. How Romantic and Sweet!

When asked what they love the most about each other, Carolyn says that she loves Phil's sense of humor and adventurous spirit while Phil loves her beautiful face and that she enjoys eats weird / exotic stuff (testimonial to his humor!).

The couple tied the knot at the Stunning Bella Collina with a traditional wedding.

The venue boast breathtaking views at every glance and has a rustic, Luxurious and Tuscan architecture. I'm in Love with these pictures <3

Amanda and Christopher's maternity session

How do I even start this blog post? It's about to get sentimental.

Amanda and Christopher will always have a special place in my heart! I meet them as a recently engaged couple during their engagement session in Winter Park a few years back. I think we laughed and giggled the entire shoot and shared some deep parts of our journeys too.

We were then honoured to get to photograph their wedding. It would be the last wedding my Husband and I photographed together before he passed away from cancer just a few months later.

He was so sick at the time but made a decision to be a part of capturing their wedding day no matter what. Some clients ask me what will happen if I'm unable to photograph their wedding (which is an important question) - and I'm proud to say that I have never missed a wedding- ever. I photographed a wedding 3 days after my husband passed away. Most people would see this am unbearable task- but I had made a decision that as long as I have two legs and two arms- I will be there.

Just like I had been there for Amanda and Christopher documenting some of their most important moments of their lives, they had been there for me while going through some of my hardest moments of my life.

I was so happy to find out that Amanda and Christopher were blessed with TWINS. Our reunion was a heartwarming one during our maternity session at Cypress Grove Estate Park. We laughed and caught up just like old friends. The most amazing things is, that Amanda Gave birth just a couple of days after our session! These images are super special to me!
