It always intrigues me how brides happen to find me! Britney found me on Facebook after someone posted they were looking for a wedding photographer on an open message board. Luckily several people referred me. Shortly after I received an email from Britney and we were booked to shoot their BEAUTIFUL wedding at the Oxford Exchange in Tampa, Florida! This venue was one of the most charming, unique, and flat out ridiculously stunning places I have even seen. It had this ode to the old world, exposed brick everywhere, a book store entrance, a style that mixed a European yesteryear and today's contemporary and a quaint flair all it's own. Think Anthropologie and The Secret Garden mixed together. One of the things I love most about this job is the opportunities to travel and work with so many great people in such unique places and this surely didn't disappoint. Britney and Chris were surrounded around their closest loved ones, in a romantic setting, and tied the know on this perfect day in March. And one thing is for sure- they never took their eyes off one another. Sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in the flurry and bustle of the wedding day but not these two, they really held on tight and never left each others side. It was seriously so sweet and so romantic. I included their first dance pictures (all shot in natural light) because to me, they showcased exactly what I meant. Chris gave Britney probably the BEST off the cuff speech during their vow exchanges and everyone couldn't help but smile for these two love birds. It was just perfect. Enjoy their tender little details and warm smiles in this majestic place. Best of luck to the Hart's as they embark on their future, side by side, and always holding hands as they did this day, forward.
