WeddingWire is one avenue that many of my clients find me and decide whether or not we may be a great fit. This is how I met Christine and Robert. I met Christine in Baldwin Park for her bridal session. This is a session either with just the bride or with both the bride a groom that takes place before the wedding date.
I enjoy utilizing bridal sessions to really focus on artistic and unique concepts that will give my couples wall worthy portraits that will wow every visitor. These sessions also allow for shorter portrait sessions during the big day which can be extra helpful on a tight timeline.
Robert and Christine chose to wed at a gorgeous location near Daytona Florida called Estate on the Halifax. This quiet little garden only minutes from Daytona Beach offers multiple housing options in historic homes on the property. These homes are perfect for photography, full of character and lighting opportunities.
Another amazing feature of this venue is the brick paved paths surrounding multiple koi ponds in the center of the property. That’s not all this place has to offer though! It also boasts a train car with train tracks, a beautiful brick paved bridge, and white chapel.
I was in love with the light we were able to create for Christine and her mother while she was getting ready. The room’s walls where she was getting ready was a beautiful dark wood panel with large windows, we added a large softbox light behind her and used the natural light in front of us to provide this gorgeous glow.
Robert and his party got ready in the train car while Christine dressed in one of the historic homes. We got the two of them together just before the ceremony for a first touch. Estate on the Halifax has so many amazing options for this! We chose the brick archway entrance to the koi ponds.
Robert and Christine married in the chapel surrounded by their friends and family. Robert sang his vows and Christine shared their amazing story of love through all phases which brought everyone to tears. They even rang the church bells on their way out!
This is definitely a wedding for the books. A gorgeous couple whose hearts are full of love and kindness, a venue abound with amazing photography opportunities and a bridal party up for anything!
