J&S, Treasure Island

There's just something about the beach. Isn't it wonderful that we're drawn to large bodies of water? Something about that hard, directional light at sunset and the line where the sea meets the sky far off in the distance. And us Floridians, we all have memories of sand and dunes from our childhoods. Somehow it feel like home and old, sweet memories.

So you can't go wrong with a wedding near the beach; you just can't.

We managed to squeeze in some fine art portraiture after the ceremony... I absolutely love these shots.

The couple held a ceremony rehearsal in a cabana next door to the wedding venue the day before the wedding, salad and mac and cheese for dinner, buffet style. I really do like to participate in these; it's a chance for me to meet some family and friends and get to know who's who. There's always candid magic happening at these events, and because the timeline really starts the next day, there's more time for explorative photography. I love the bride's explosive positivity(she's always been this way), and these expressions of sisterhood and family. Take a look at the images and you'll see what I mean.

I shot video and stills for this wedding at the same time, which proved to be a bit of a challenge, but I don't hate the outcome. For a first wedding video, I'm pretty happy with it, and I've already booked two more video packages, so looking forward to exploring and improving in videography. I have decided that in the future I'll need at least one second shooter for backup. If you're curious about my packages, check out bobbyfoxx.com/weddingpackages. I'll also have a video portfolio up and running sometime in late 2020/early 2021. Turn on the sound to hear 'Seafoam' by Mike Dorsey and the Impossible Shoelace
