Weddings are always so inspiring, but photographing one for friends is even more so. It could not have been a more perfect day. Warm sunshine, cool wind, all followed by Florida’s cotton candy sky.

Marissa looked absolutely beautiful in her hand made dress and the hands that made it were not far. Her mother was right there to cinch up every ribbon. Both her father and the groom to be, Sean, were both moved by her beauty.

Then came the celebration and one of my favorite photos of the day, during the first dace. No posing, no direction, just pure joy capture by my lens.
