Sky and Laura found me at the bottom of a long list of photographers on a Florida Keys wedding blog. I was surprised at their persistent search for just the type of photography they wanted, and quite honored that they thought my work fit the bill.
Their wedding was held at the Key West Botanical Gardens. It is a lovely place any day of the year, and even more so coming from the grim grey weather of mid-December Baltimore! After a ceremony among the palms and tropical hardwoods, we ran over to Smather's Beach for some group and couple portraits (where I put idle bridesmaids, groomsmen and family members to work holding my reflector -- thank you all again for that!) After the portraits we went back to the gardens for the reception.
As the night wore on, I began to form a more complete impression of Sky and Laura. I could see all around me, from the personal touches of their wedding decorations to the excellent people they surrounded themselves with, that their careful search for a photographer was just the tip of the iceberg. These are people who will settle for nothing but the best, and in each other I think they have found that. As they are both doctors, I know that their patients are lucky to have them as well!
