Estate on the Halifax Sonny and Michelle

Sonny & Michelle got married at the Estate on the Halifax located in Port Orange on August 16,2013. The property is  a lovely venue to host a wedding, because of the beautiful location and excellent staff. Katie Hunt and her team kept the wedding running very smoothly! Nadia, my assistant held the off-camera flash and she photographed from the balcony during the ceremony. I’m sure every photographer experiences one of the “Aha” moments when they shoot a great image. The sparkler exit photo turned out to be one of my favorites from the wedding. The image would have been fine without a backlight, but it definitely added quality to the moment. I’m not ashamed to say that Nadia and I gave each other a high-five after we looked at the back of the camera,haha. By the way, the couple is expecting their first child together- a baby girl named Emma! Double congrats to the couple!

Lew Gardens Wedding Orlando, Florida Barry + Lori

Barry & Lori: Married on August 10,2013
Barry and Lori tied the knot inside the lovely historic Garden house at the Leu Garden’s property in Orlando.  The couple is so sweet and fun! Lori rocked it out during her bridal portraits with a beautiful smile and sass to go with it. The entire bridal party got a kick out of posing for portraits too.
Most importantly, the wedding truly represented the couple-simple, sweet, modern, and was filled with their faith. Several close friends offered their blessing and marriage guidance based on their Christian faith. The love poured out from all the friends and family&  enriched the ceremony with a special touch. In addition to the blessings, the ceremony shifted into a few minutes of worship and praise for the union of Lori and Barry.  During the first kiss, I couldn’t help but giggle seeing Barry’s leg pop up. Too cute!
Just a side note, a Bridesmaid made the initiative to compliment how calm and collective I remained while photographing. She continued to tell me she is a wedding photographer too and she understands how chaotic weddings can be at times. Her encouragement definitely lifted my spirit and reconfirmed I’m doing a good job. Michael’s Photography team values hard work and dedication. We’ll get the job done right with a smile!
We wish you many blessings in your marriage Lori and Barry! Good luck in the next chapter of your lives!

Daytona Beach Children’s Portraiture

When Jennifer & Craig brought their young son Bobby into my Studio, it would be our 1st portrait session together.  The 1st session is really important.  That’s when you have that opportunity to bond & create a fun atmosphere & memory.  Bobby & I really hit it off!  He was amazing!!!  Such a cute smile – so well-behaved.  He struck all of the little “grown up” poses I threw at him.  And, even had a few of his own.  These are a few of parents; Jennifer & Craig’s favorite images.  We hope you too enjoy them…  Which one is your favorite?

Estate on the Halifax Tavern & Chapel in the Garden wedding Rick + Tensy

I challenge anyone to find a more beautiful garden setting for their wedding than The Estate on the Halifax Tavern in the Garden!  Rick & Tensy certainly agree as they chose Tavern & Chapel in the Garden for their wedding ceremony & reception.  Tensy & her girls did their wedding preparation in Agatha’s Cottage while Rick & his guys got ready in the Train Car.  The weather was perfect as was their entire wedding day.  Katie Hunt, Director of The Estate on the Halifax Tavern & Chapel in the Garden kept everything rolling smoothly.  Melody Anglin was magical on her harp for their wedding ceremony & cocktail hour while  DJ Mark P kept the Reception lively. Our congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Digioia!

Pastor Leo - Absolutely gorgeous images of a beautiful couple and beautiful family. The day was a wonderful reflection of love, honor and respect of three generations. I pray God’s blessings will continue to shower your marriage. Pastor Leo
