The BBB is your friend

Here’s a handy tip to save your wedding from disaster: Check out each and every vendor you’re considering with your local Better Business Bureau. If they’re located or work in other areas of the state, check those BBB sites also. One Orlando photography company that works the Jacksonville area has numerous complaints on the Orlando BBB site. A simple Google search of “[company name] complaints” is also a really good idea!

Deercreek Wedding {marc + stephanie}

Filed under: Jacksonville Wedding Photography — Cliff @ 4:19 pm

An unusual preview. Marc & Stephanie didn’t want anyone to see photos of themselves until they saw them first. So, I thought, how about a preview that never shows the bride & groom’s faces?

I just love this image of Shervonne at one of the huge windows of the Main Library in downtown Jacksonville. It really shows off her gorgeous mermaid wedding gown!

I love this moment from Amanda & Tim’s wedding where Amanda takes a moment with her mom and bridesmaids for a prayer before the ceremony.

A great wedding planner DOES make a difference …

Filed under: Jacksonville Wedding Photography,Wedding advice — Cliff @ 1:23 pm

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of working with Lisa Burnett of Elegant Weddings by Lisa (http://www.elegantweddingsbylisa.com), a Certified Master Bridal Consultant, on Tisha & Anton’s wedding at Deercreek Country Club. This was probably the most well-planned, smoothest running, and beautifully designed wedding we’ve ever seen! Working as many weddings as we do, we really see the difference a well-trained wedding planner can make. Not just in making things run smoothly, but in pulling together all the elements that make a wedding beautiful. Lisa not only did a masterful job of coordinating all the various moving parts of the wedding, but also brought a real sense of elegance and cohesiveness to the overall visual design. Great job, Lisa!

Here’s just a couple photos of Lisa’s design for the reception (the food was amazing, too). I hate to say it, but as good a photographer as I am these photos really don’t quite do her work justice.

St Paul’s and Hilltop Club Wedding {tim & amanda}

Filed under: Jacksonville Wedding Photography — Cliff @ 8:31 pm

Or, as so many of their friends call them, Timanda. And I can certainly see why. I see so many photographers post comments about their weddings and every single one is “the best ever”, “super sweet”, etc. And it comes off as super-insincere. But with these guys, I can honestly say that this was one of the very best weddings and very best couples we’ve ever had. It was very apparent from the first moments at the church that Tim & Amanda were tremendously in love. The entire day was so genuine and fantastic fun. They and their family and friends were incredibly nice. I really, really wish we could do this wedding every week!

Anyhow, here are a few of my favorite photos from the day. Normally I have these up by Monday, but we took way more photos than normal and so many of them are great that I had a hard time narrowing it down. Look for a more extensive gallery in another week or so!

She’s trying so hard …

One of the most difficult things during family formals is getting the kids to look at the camera instead of … well … anything else! The little flower girl was trying so hard, but the temptation to know what the others were doing was just to much.
