The theme was Love

Living in, and being photographers in a beach state, we spend a lot of time there. There's family beach sessions. High school beach sessions, sunset photography on the beach and of course beach weddings. As one of the leading wedding photographers in the area we get to shoot many many beach weddings. Each one tropical and beautiful. We get to spend 8 out of 12 months in warm sun, and warm Gulf of Mexico breezes watching you and your spouse say vows over pristine waters. Tampa Clearwater wedding photography means you will have your fair share of opportunities to photograph these gorgeous weddings. Today's wedding photography spotlight brings us a St Petersburg Beach Wedding. The venue is The Grand Plaza on St Pete beach. The hotel is set on Gulf Boulevard and it is the only beach wedding venue that also offers a spinning rooftop restaurant. That's cool!

Meet Amanda and Alex. They were referred over to us from another couple we had the pleasure of photographing. We LOVE referrals! It helps fuel our business and .. We offer referral perks for couples that send others our way! Love was the word of the day! Literally! Their details were beautiful with beach colors like corals and tans. The word love was incorporated throughout from the cake topper to the signs.

Getting ready for the ladies was done in the Grand Plazas “glam” room. Its a room set aside for the brides to get hair and make up done. Have mimosas and treats, and enjoy the process with their bridesmaids. It was buzzing as they were getting ready. Everyone was excited and ready to stand with Amanda as she married her sweetheart. Destiny and Light was their hair and make up crew. We have done many a wedding with them and Priscilla and her team always do a fantastic job. They keep their clients looking fresh and are always faithful to keeping them on time.

Elizabeth started her day with the guys and Alex getting ready. He was nervous excited as he had waited for this day for quite some time. Amanda and Alex had been together for some time before they're wedding and he was looking forward to this day. There was laughter and silliness happening throughout the getting ready process. The smiles on his face speak volumes.

The ceremony was held on the south side of the beach which is awesome. There is an image I love to have gotten at The Grand Plaza from the presidential ballroom upstairs. I asked Elizabeth to start her day in the reception room looking out one of the high windows. I was down on the sand at the front of the aisle way where the arch was. I would photograph the processional from the ground. She would photograph it from there getting a really nice aerial view, then meet me down after Amanda had walked. The ceremony was presided over by Rev. Tom Green. It was a simple ceremony that was done flawlessly. Amanda and Alex were now husband and wife.

Formals were split to make it possible for our couple to enjoy some of their cocktail hour. We photographed the girls and guys separately before the ceremony to make the after ceremony formal time a bit shorter. After ceremony one of the things we will do is give our couples a few minutes to “just be” We will suggest they go for a short walk to just say hello to each other and to relax for a few minutes as a new husband and wife. It gives them a chance to “breathe” and us a chance to get ready for the next round of imaging. While taking their walk one of us will be secretly shooting. We can get some pretty great shots of your natural interactions. After some romantic poses with our couple we went in for the reception.

The reception was held in the Presidential Ballroom at the top of the Grand Plaza. It has many very high windows over looking the Gulf of Mexico and the beach below. Its a very beautiful and intimate setting for dinner and dancing. Before we left for the evening we were able to sneak them away for some pretty rocking sunset photos on the beach.

We were honored to be this couples beach wedding photographers! Thank you for stopping by and remember if you know of anyone needing some pretty rocking wedding photographers, send them our way! We capture the memories so you can live them.
