Wedding Day Tips for Florida Brides

It’s become an essential part of my client experience to educate my brides on what works and what does not work for beach weddings in Florida. And now, I am sharing the knowledge!

Planning Your Wedding Day Photography Timeline

Here’s a sample of our wedding photography timeline we suggest to all our Ardensea brides and grooms!

Making Bride & Groom Portraits a Priority on Your Wedding Day

Running out of time is the biggest reason why couples skip over the bride and groom portraits, so it’s important to plan for at least 30-minutes to an hour for newlyweds to step away and capture wedding day pictures.

Best Detail Shots for Your Wedding Day

When it comes to planning out your wedding photography, consider the little details that have a surprisingly big impact. See which shots are absolute must-haves on your wedding day.

Danielle & Matt

Shenandoah Crossing Resort

Shenandoah Crossing Resort in Gordonsville, Virginia is an absolutely breathtaking venue for a fall wedding. Danielle and Matt shared an intimately delicate ceremony & reception at a large manor house looking over a gorgeous lake. What a great wedding to finish my time living in Virginia before taking the move back down to Florida. I could not have been any luckier for such a sweet couple.
