Ahhhhhh Miami Florida, where the sun is always shining. I completely enjoyed myself while shooting in Miami, a perfect location for any couple considering a destination wedding. I found myself not only surrounded by the beauty of the wedding location, but also by the bride and groom. Shelby and Chris chose the most amazing venue when they chose The Biltmore Hotel, I loved the old Spanish charm that the venue held. Using many of the venues details, such as the old world tile and colors I was able to capture the essence of this magical Floridian destination wedding.
I found myself realizing that the wedding of Chris and Shelby was so completely elegant. As a wedding photographer, I always am on the lookout for details that can speak to the viewer from the image. The wedding details were something that I highlighted. For example, I loved the ceiling of The Biltmore Hotel, I loved the old enormous windows played up behind the bride and groom. I enjoyed using old world details against a young and vibrant couple. The wedding photos speak for themselves.
I have to say that my favorite photos I was able to capture happened naturally. My best wedding photos happen when the couples are at their most sentimental. Shelby and Chris’s ceremony was breathtaking. I cannot write any words that would give the ceremony the amount of justice it deserves. Watching this couple break down while reciting their vows was emotional for all in attendance and I loved the photos that came out of that moment.
The images that I captured following the ceremony were also some of my favorite photos. Wedding photographers in Florida know the importance of that perfect time of day when the sun sets and everything has a glowing appearance. I loved using not only the sun, but also the beauty in the venue to make some really wonderful wedding photos. To be perfectly honest, this is a wedding I wil never forgot and I was so happy that I was able to be a part of Shelby and Chris’s wedding day.
