Sean & Ashley’s Buena Vista Palace wedding

After 3 1/2 years together Sean and Ashley tied the knot on January 4th at the Buena Vista Palace in Orlando. Sean proposed to Ashley 2 years ago at a romantic dinner on a visit back to his hometown of New Orleans. Ashley of course said “YES” and we wish this really kind and sweet couple all the best in their new life together.

I asked Ashley what her favorite memory was from her wedding day and she said it was seeing her husband for the first time as her Dad walked her down the aisle. The day was wet, cold and rainy! The outside gazebo ceremony scrapped for a quick change to inside. Not what Ashley and Sean had pictured for their big day. The unpredictable Florida weather did nothing to damper this couples spirits and Ashley said that her wedding “turned out so much better than I could ever have imagined!”

That’s what it’s all about…not the dress, the flowers, the DJ or the location. Nothing matters but the fact that this couple has vowed to love, honor and cherish each other for the rest of their lives. No doubt they will!

Thank you for being so fun and de-stressing me :)”



Lindsey and Kyle’s Orlando wedding at Cross Creek Ranch

Normally I write a little blurb about a recent couple we had the honor of doing wedding photography for, but this time they did all the work for us, but more in a moment…

Lindsey (London) and Kyle Harris got married on October the 20th at the Cross Creek Country Ranch in Dover. This location is really beautiful and suited Lindsey and Kyle perfectly! I’m not a writer, just a photographer, blogs are seriously procrastinated tasks that I must eventually tackle. All I want to say is, we had a blast at this wedding! Everyone and everything was just perfect. That is a huge testament to Lindsey and Kyle, who are two really nice young people, surrounded by wonderful family and friends. We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!

Here is a list of their vendors, all really great to work with. But before you go, we asked Lindsey and Kyle for a little quote we might put up on the blog. We got so much more! Here is what they had to say about us…

“When Kyle and I first met Charlene and Stan we both agreed, right away, there was no need to keep looking. During our engagement photo shoot we really got to know them and found out just how fun and quirky they are. Charlene doesn’t care what she has to do to get the perfect shot… whether it be laying in the dirt or standing upside down- she is going to make it happen! And, Stan has that eye, that knack, of knowing just where we need to be! The day of the wedding was perfect… Charlene and Stan proved that it doesn’t matter just how large a wedding party is, even one of 26! They portrayed exquisite professionalism and organization while making sure everyone had their picture taken. Truly blessed to have these photographs that we can cherish for years to come.”

Beautiful Orlando Wedding Photography at the Rosen Center

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Matthew and Philander Mitchell! We had a blast shooting their wedding on October 26th at the Rosen Center on International Drive. Matthew grew up in the same neighborhood as Stan, Lake Conway East, yet it took his Tampa bride to find us via The Knot. Funny how things work out. Now, the newlyweds have relocated to Atlanta and are hopefully taking advantage of this perfect snuggling weather! Many thanks to Shanae Hall, owner of Party Life Productions, for all of her help that day.

Jenna & Garrison’s romantic Orlando wedding

October 6th was an amazing day for Jenna Marra and Garrison Muller for many reasons, but mainly because it was the day they vowed to spend the rest of their lives together. Jenna walked down the aisle at Sanlando United Methodist Church in a stunning ivory beaded mermaid dress by Lazaro.

The celebrations continued on at the Sheraton North under the talented wing of Master DJ Mr. Darrin Shifrel of DJ Fun Factory. The Photo Booth (by Scott Trippler at was lots of fun for guests young and old, and everything very well managed and overseen by the Sheraton’s Jana McGreal. Congratulations Jenna and Garrison!!

Kathleen & Craig’s wedding at the Waldorf Astoria

Congratulations go out to Kathleen (Wilson) and Craig Dunn whose Orlando wedding we had the privilege of photographing this past September. We feel like family now as we have also photographed sister Jennifer’s wedding to Matt Raspallo a few years back.

Pictures started at the house where Katleen’s hair was done by Monica Blount at Vamp Studio, and her makeup by Kathleen’s elegant dress came from Solutions Bridal in the Millenia Mall, and her fragrant flowers from Lana Pelham Faulkner. What a genuinely nice couple!

Their students at Windermere Preparatory School are very fortunate. The ceremony took place at St. Charles in College Park and the reception at the fabulous Waldorf Astoria. There is something to be said for a proficient helpful and capable staff and that is exactly what we encountered at the Waldorf Astoria where we had the pleasure of working with Jane McLean. She and her staff were very attentive and on point with everything to do with Kathleen and Craig’s reception! All of which was captured by the charming duo of ProOneVideo, Mark and Lisa LeGrand.

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors we had the pleasure of working with that day and congratulations again to Kathleen and Craig!

Lara & Brian’s Orlando wedding at Maison et Jardin

Congratulations to Lara and Brian Kader whose Orlando wedding we photographed on September 8th. The bride got dressed at the Lakeshore Reserve located on the property with the Ritz and J.W Marriott. The ceremony was at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church in College Park, and the reception at Maison et Jardin in Altamonte Springs.

Both Lara and Brian are ice skating instructors at the RDV Sportsplex located in Maitland, check out the picture with their ice skates — very cute! Lara, originally from Brazil, incorporated much of her Brazilian heritage in her Orlando wedding, from delicious deserts to an an amazing Samba band – a successful surprise for her guests ! Great couple, great wedding, who will no doubt celebrate a great life together!

Tammy and Will’s North Carolina wedding!

Many couples travel to Florida for their destination weddings, but we are often asked to travel out of Florida. Just a few weeks ago we traveled to a gorgeous spot in North Carolina for Tammy and Will F.’s wedding. The Mill Pond, at Bear Lake Reserve, was the setting for their outdoor wedding.

The guests were seated around the pond, nestled in the mountains of North Carolina. It was a quiet, peaceful, refreshingly cool, and an amazingly serene location. I loved the sign that greeted their guests, it said: ‘As two families are becoming one, we ask that you choose a seat, and not a side!’ So sweet! And the word “sweet” describes Tammy perfectly; a sweet, soulful, country girl in her cowboy boots!

Tammy got dressed in a log cabin, and their ceremony took place on a wooden bridge, over a bubbling creek. The ceremony was quite touching; a Christian ceremony was very meaningful to the couple. It was emotional and lovely to witness. After a short drive in their convertible, they arrived at the reception site, Sundrops, also at the Bear Lake Reserve . We witnessed some entertaining reception games ––hysterical to watch––and new to us. There was an Elvis impersonator who made an appearance (again, something we’d never seen) and he was surprisingly VERY good! As the reception heated up, so did the afternoon, and the Groom was promptly tossed into the pool by his groomsmen, who could not resist the temptation to cool down, and ended up in the pool themselves. We had a GREAT time, and if anyone ever needs a cabin in the Smokey Mountains, near Cherokee and Bryson City,  in North Carolina, check out this site: Make a reservation, and tell Jillian that Charlene and Stan sent you, you won’t regret it, it’s a gorgeous luxury cabin!

As for Tammy and Will, congratulations! Have a wonderful life together, come visit us in Florida, and hopefully we’ll see y’all again REAL soon 🙂

Baby Bella Seraphina… so adorable to photograph!

One of the best things about being a wedding photographer is building a relationship with our young couples, and as a result, being included in the momentous milestones of their lives.

Please welcome Baby Bella Seraphina Anderson, born on January 4th, 2012, at Celebration Hospital, weighing in at 7lbs. Mom and Dad, Shawn Anderson and Megan (nee Phillips), were married on June 26th, 2010 at Gaylord Palms.

Look at that smile and look at those thighs, just perfect! Congratulations Megan and Shawn, can’t wait to see what the future holds and we look forward to photographing her over the many years to come!
