Wint Family Session at South Inlet Park | Boca Raton

Military Family Session at South Inlet Park in Boca Raton

A Military Family Session at South Inlet Park in Boca Raton with the Wints:

Originally from Jamaica, Jahbari moved to the United States a few years ago. Having been in the Jamaica Combined Cadet Force and having a military background, it was only natural for him to want to join the U.S. military. So he did.

Jahbari is now a member of the U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard, whose “primary mission is to represent the service in Presidential, Joint Armed Forces, Navy, and public ceremonies in and around the nation’s capital.

Members of the Navy Ceremonial Guard participate in some of our nation’s most prestigious ceremonies, including Presidential inaugurations and arrival ceremonies for foreign officials.  In addition, the Navy Ceremonial Guard serves as the funeral escort and conducts all services for Navy personnel buried in Arlington National Cemetery.”

Time to Update the Family Photos

This strong and motivated young man is heading to Washington D.C. for training and wanted a family session before heading out on his new journey.

He also dabbles in photography so he had an idea of what he was looking for. Specifically, he wanted some profile shots of him in his uniform, in addition to pictures of him with his mom, dad, and sister.

South Inlet Park

As you might have noticed, this park is one of my favorites in the Boca Raton area. Surrounded by water, tropical trees, pavilions, and a jetty, it has pretty much all you need from a photographer’s standpoint.

Because of our limited time and last minute booking, we were limited to when we could do our session. Unfortunately, they could only do it at a time when the sun was harsh and the day was a bit windy. On the bright side, the sun was out and gave us some great back-lighting!

The Wint Family

You can tell that the Wint family is super close and love each other very much. And it’s obvious how proud they are of their son and brother. This family was such a joy to work with, and so photogenic! I mean, just look at their photos:

Tropical Wedding at the Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale

Tropical Wedding at the Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale

There’s nothing like a tropical wedding at the Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale. How can you go wrong with a gorgeous venue, bright colors, flamingos and swans, and a fun couple?!

Photographers Connect

When a fellow talented creative asks you to help them shoot a wedding, you don’t hesitate. That was the case with Stephen and Catherine’s April wedding at the Church by the Sea and Bonnet House. New York’s Amanda Gentile was flying down with the couple for their destination wedding. She reached out needing a second photographer and I was more than thrilled to do so! And so glad that I did! Not only was the wedding amazing, but working alongside this other photographer was a blast! Low-key, laid-back, and fun, Amanda and I discussed weddings and events, and life up north. I love meeting new creatives, swapping stories, and sharing tips! **Disclaimer: all photos posted on this blog are solely my own.**

It’s Prep Time!

The bridal party got ready at the GALLERYone hotel in Fort Lauderdale. In a large suite, the flower girls enjoyed a little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse while the ladies enjoyed sipping on their ‘adult drinks’ with flamingo straws, getting pampered, while looking at the gorgeous view outside.

The day couldn’t have been more sunny or beautiful. For once, Florida wasn’t too hot and stuffy!

Catherine appeared to be calm, relaxed, and laid-back. Not that I don’t think she was a bit nervous and stressed, as most brides are. However, she hid her emotions well and seemed to be taking it all in.

Church by the Sea

Catherine’s brother is an active member of the beautiful Church by the Sea so there was no doubt that this would be where Catherine and Stephen would say their “I do’s.” Quaint and beautiful, this church was the perfect venue for them.

The bride looked like an angel coming down the aisle. Stephen, with tears in his eyes, couldn’t take his eyes off of her. Then again, no one could!

With traditional vows and a quick ceremony, the two were pronounced husband and wife and took off, ready to party! The nerve-wracking part was done!

Pure Perfection

There’s nothing I love more than intimate time spent with the bride and groom (and a bit with the bridal party). View pure perfection below:

15th Street Fisheries Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

15th Street Fisheries Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

Catherine and Stephen’s 15th Street Fisheries Wedding Rehearsal Dinner in Fort Lauderdale was one full of good food, great company, pure joy, and tons of laughter! Not to mention, beautiful skies considering the morning of and later that night, Fort Lauderdale experienced tons of rain storms.

C+S

Coming from New York, the happy couple have a love for South Florida. Not only are they fans of the tropical vibes, but they have family down here, including the most adorable three nieces and one nephew. In the near future, they’re hoping to reside in both sunny Florida and New York.

Tropical Vibes

Because of their love for Florida, Catherine and Stephen planned on having a tropical-filled weekend. From their attire (I mean, hello flamingo shirt!! I am obsessed with his shirt and her color-coordinating earrings. If you love his shirt as much as I do, check out Bonobos for their awesome, well-fitted men’s clothing) to their bridal party gifts, their theme was on-point. The boys were given flamingo socks, ties, and handkerchiefs. The ladies were given boxers decorated with oranges and miscellaneous personal gifts. It was so much fun watching everyone open their gifts!

Nature Engagement Photos with Phara and Marcel

Nature Engagement Photos

This session consists of nature engagement photos for those who love nature, color, and a good view! Anne Kolb Nature Center has it all and we had the chance to take it all in during Phara and Marcel’s beautiful engagement session in Hollywood, Florida.

P+M

It’s a classic tale of love at first sight. Phara and Marcel met at their church. She was part of the welcoming booth when Marcel, a new church member, walked in. They shook hands but couldn’t shake the feeling that they were meant to be. And they were! Now engaged and getting married at the end of May, these two are saying “I do” at the place that brought them together.

Anne Kolb Nature Center

This was my first time visiting the Anne Kolb Nature Center and sure won’t be my last! I mean, what’s there not to love! You have access to the intracoastal waterway, a tower that overlooks Hollywood, beautiful walking paths, and greenery all around. And for me, I also had the chance to photograph the lovely couple, which just made my visit all the more special.
