David & Crystal Engagement Session | Melbourne, FL

Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite sessions to shoot and this one did not disappoint! It truly is a privilege to photograph this time in a couple’s life and to witness their excitement and anticipation of the wedding day. These two were naturals in front of the camera despite some initial apprehension.:)

David and Crystal, thanks for the many laughs and for making the long drive for your session. I really enjoyed getting to know you both and can’t wait to photograph your wedding in July!!

We began at the Botanical Gardens at Florida Tech and finished our session at the beach where the couple enjoys spending time together. Here are some of my favorites.

Hayley - I love the picture in the garden where crystal is in the really cute dress and they are holding hands. So cute! Good outfit choice! And I love the one on the beach where crystal is on her tip toes and looking at the camera…. That is my favorite one! Tabitha, you are amazing.

Collin & Michelle | Jupiter, FL Wedding Photographer

Collin and Michelle were married on a perfectly gorgeous day at the grooms’ parents’ house on the intracoastal. The look on Collin’s face when he saw his bride was so precious. Collin and Michelle,  thank you for the honor of capturing this special day in your lives.

A HUGE thank you goes to the fabulous Jessica DeYoung for second shooting.

Joshua & Tiffany New Year’s Day | North Palm Beach, FL Wedding

Joshua and Tiffany chose the morning of January 1st as their wedding day; a new year and new beginnings as husband and wife. The day began before the sun came up. The couple had their “first look” at sunrise and it was such a sweet moment to witness and capture. The wedding had a nautical theme, and I just loved all the special little touches-from the knot boutonnières to the monogrammed sail that provided the backdrop for the ceremony. Joshua and Tiffany, it was an honor and a blessing to be a part of your special day.

A huge thank you goes to Mark Sheats for second shooting and providing some of the images seen here.

Helen - Tabitha, I “amen” all the other comments and really appreciate your sensitivity to capture a lot of the “little things” that slip past us too quickly to really notice. I would paint over the whole day with one word: “JOY”…Thank you for your part!

February 14, 2012 - 10:29 PM

Joanna - Beautiful, Tab!!! You not only captured the moment, but also the emotions & feeling of the whole day! It WAS like reliving it again! Great work! :)

Tiffany - Tabitha,
Thank you so much! You did a great job capturing our nautical theme wedding day with your amazing photography skills. We are so glad to have had you be our photographer. And I second/third/fourth? all the others: great job capturing the details, like the table decorations, the starfish, the bubble chandelier, the melon “boats,” the general ambiance decor, the seashell water fountain, the sail backdrop, the sailor rope boutonnieres, the tiered cinnamon bun “cake,” the nautical ribbon on the bouquet, the waterfall braid in my hair, the nautical wedding shoes, and the getaway boat. I think my favorite picture from this bunch of photos is the black and white one of Joshua looking over his shoulder with “fierce” expression, as Matthew Wensing described it on Facebook, and me holding his arm and leaning against him.
Nice work!
