Let me introduce you guys to Kaylan and Lauren. They had contacted me right after they tied the knot in the keys and wanted to do a trash the dress session in the springs. I about died when I got the message. This session had me written all over it! We met up at Lithia Springs, a gorgeous spring I had yet to explore in central Florida. Wanna know how they picked it? Well, how cool is this? For their honeymoon they road tripped it around Florida and camped at a bunch of different places and this was one of their stops, sounds awesome right? They showed up in full wedding attire, sea fan from the keys and all looking stunning!
But it doesn’t end there. Not only were these two gorgeous looking but they were so freaking sweet and MADLY in love with each other. Like MADLY! Visibility madly in love with each other. Sometimes couples are slightly awkward in front of a new person, especially with a camera but with these two, they acted as if I wasn’t even there which allowed me to truly capture the overwhelming love they have for each other in a very real, raw and honest way that photographers dream of. I can honestly say that this session is by far my favorite to date! It’s gonna be hard to top.
Amazing couple, flowy lace dress, turquoise pants ( you know I love me some color), crystal clear water, springs to ourselves, some very friendly fish, and a lot of love….perfection!

First off let me just say that I adore these two people! The love they have for each other is so visible and such a beautiful thing to see. I knew when I took their engagement photos that their wedding would be amazing because it was one of my favorite sessions ever! You can see more of those here.
They say it’s good luck when it rains on your wedding day…well in Amy and Drew’s case I was pretty convinced that they would have the most amazing weather ever since it rained at their engagement shoot. Man, was I wrong. Fast forward to their wedding day and in typical Florida fashion, their day came complete with a tropical storm. Now, it’s Florida, it usually rains somewhere during a wedding day but then the clouds eventually clear. On this day, God just had different plans I guess because it literally rained their ENTIRE wedding day. While my photographer heart was breaking for them, they were both so calm and cool about it that you would have never even known. What started as a light sprinkle during their ceremony eventually turned into a full downpour as they said their vows under cover at The Marriott Boca Center, which I have to say was kind of beautiful. What later came out of their go-with-the-flow attitude was the willingness to literally stand in the rain for me which made for some epic portraits against the colorful lights of Boca Center.
Some other note worthy details about this day:
The pastor that married them has officiated a handful of weddings I’ve captured and attended which is pretty neat.
There were all kinds of adorable little kiddos doing all kinds of cute kiddo things.
Amy’s dad by far gave the best dad speech I have EVER heard!
AND they had pumpkin spice wedding cake! Yup, you heard me right, PUMPKIN SPICE WEDDING CAKE!
