Audra and Wes II | {Crystal River Wedding Photographer}

If you missed the first half of Audra and Wes' story go here.. we had the most perfect day, beautiful light and a group of absolutely amazing family and friends to create some of my favorite pictures of all time.

I absolutely love traveling and though I've traveled all over the US and abroad to document some of the most beautiful and heartfelt weddings this was the first time I'd shot a wedding in Florida. Needless to say.. I'll go back anytime! The light was absolutely gorgeous... I couldn't get enough. It was soft and beautiful and divine- much like California. Pair that with a couple in love, surrounded by their most beautiful friends and family and my heart was very, very happy indeed.

I truly hope this is an indication to how 2014 is going to be.. if so it's going to be absolutely GRAND.

After the ceremony and as the sun began to find its way down the horizon we hopped a fence (literally) and went exploring in some trees... I can't express how grateful I am for my couples and their families and their absolute and complete trust in me and my vision(s). When presented with the idea they simply smiled and said, "Whatever is going to make the prettiest pictures, we trust you." Gosh- I'm a lucky girl.

So not only did the bridal party come into the Florida "woods" their families did as well and as a result those pictures are absolutely divine as well! Audra and Wes- I can't thank you enough and look forward to seeing you again very soon. Is it time for another trip to Florida yet!?

Ok I could go on but I'll let the imagery tell the rest of their story. Such a perfect day. Such wonderful friends and to you- Audra and Wes.. I love you dearly. I can't wait to get back to Florida again!

These two are champs. They did anything that was asked of them... anything. Wes doesn't even like pictures and he proceeded with a smile on his face. I hope he agrees that all the "pictures" were worth it. :) The bugs got pretty bad close to sunset.. but they never complained once. When Audra saw this in the back of the camera.. she said, "that was SO worth it". florida_wedding_photographer_0135

Sunspots? Nope.. just some Florida bugs. florida_wedding_photographer_0136
