An Orlando Wedding - Taira & Joey - December 18th, 2010

How do I begin to do justice to one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever had the opportunity to photograph and, on top of that, getting to photograph one of my very best friends in the world.  I've known Taira now for 10 years.  She's one of the most loving wonderful people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.  You can see where she gets it too.  Her mom, dad, sis are all just the sweetest, most honest, loving people.  At the rehursal dinner her momma sent me a note on a napkin to where I was sitting that said, "I'm sorry you have you sit way down there, just know we love you and are so glad you're here."  You can't beat that.  I can't say how thankful and blessed I feel to be a part of their wedding and their lives.  So I was super excited to meet Joey and I have to say, he's an awesome, humble gentleman.  Taira did well & Joey's a lucky guy!  

I woke up the morning of the wedding thinking, ok, this is it, this is the wedding that gets rained out.  Pouring, dark, clouds, not good.  When I got to the ceremony location at The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne.  I had an umbrella out over my camera, walking around the place, doing my best to figure out where I was going to do some creative shooting.  You can see in a few of the photos of the guys I got some great reflections from all the puddles on the ground.  Even Taira's bridesmaids surprised her with some nice blue galoshes to take the edge off her rainy wedding.  Then, all the sudden, the sun came out, smiles came out (even though Taira was a great sport the entire time), and the wedding happened outdoors as planned!

And I'd like to point out that I told everyone not to worry, I never get rained out.  Yeah maybe that's being a bit over confident.  But don't you want your photographer to be confident?  I would.

It was a beautiful southern wedding.  Amazing.  I could go on and on, but, I think the photos speak for themselves.  Thank you Taira & Joey for letting me be a part of your wedding!
