5 Reasons To Do A First Look

Should you have a first look on your wedding day? Disclaimer: YES you should, but let me tell you why.

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.

Sarah and Dan

Bear Tree Barn

Sarah & Dan embraced all the woodsy, natural vibes in this fall rustic barn house wedding. The Bear Tree Barn is a rustic wedding venue in Bushnell, FL. And what an amazing venue for a fall wedding! I have to be honest… as a Vero Beach wedding photographer, I’m rarely able to see the gorgeous fall-colored leaves.

I have to say – I was so blown away when I drove through what seemed like an endless stretch of a combination of orange and lush green leaves. Sarah and Dan planned on having a lovely outdoor ceremony, but unfortunately, there was just a little bit of rain on this farmhouse parade. We still managed to have an amazing first look under a gorgeous tree.

Kind Words from the Bride

What an amazing experience from start to finish! Jackie is the photographer I didn’t know I needed, who gave me photos of my wedding day I didn’t know I wanted! I really had no cares, no plans, and no expectations going into the wedding (I was not the one wanting to have a big event). Jackie blew me away with how professional and personable she is throughout the entire day. The photos are absolutely gorgeous and I am in love with every single one!
