Oh, Baxter, you are my little gentleman. I’ll take you to foggy London town ’cause you are my little gentleman.
That’s the first thing that comes into my head when the word “London” is mentioned (no judging). So imagine my happiness when I got a call from a lovely California girl named Monica who was getting married to an amazing guy named Adam in Foggy London Town! The happiness was large.
Living in South Florida means that many people have destination weddings here on the beaches, but it’s not quite as often that destination wedding means that I get to cross the pond into the magical city that is London.
Have you been to London? Do words like Fortnum and Mason, Trafalgar Square and Bath make you tingle inside? Do you secretly wish you had a British accent and got to ride the Tube home from work? I do. I do a lot. I may have gotten made fun of for eating fish and chips over and over again, but you know what? I don’t care. It may be peasant food to you lucky folks in the UK but around here, it’s fancy. So is HP Sauce. And treacle pudding. And that spotted dessert that I can’t mention because it sounds like a very dirty euphemism in America- you know what I mean.
On to the photos!
Oh Hello. Don’t mind us, we’re just taking a stroll.
Oh, that little thing behind us? That’s just Tower Bridge. You know, leads you into the Tower of London. No big deal.
Can I point out that everyone in London walks around so well-dressed that Adam and Monica didn’t look out of place wearing this down the street? Makes me a little embarrassed about those midnight ice cream runs in my PJs. Not that I do that. Because I don’t.
Can’t wait to share the photos of the wedding. When you take good-looking, kind people who truly were made for each other and you throw in buildings that were around before our country was in existence, good things are sure to follow.
Would Do Bad Things For Just One More Cup Of Queen Anne Tea Blend From Fortum And Mason,
You’ve got to love couples who are willing to go to absurd locations for engagement photos that are different from the norm.
When I suggested a dilapidated building to Jenn as more of a question than a suggestion, I did not actually expect her to be so excited about it. Sure enough, her and Michael agreed and we were able to take some fantastic photos at a somewhat unusual location.
I love how much fun they have together:
Things are always a lot more fun with a relaxed and happy couple.
This one is my favorite:
We then headed to the beach because, well, we’re in South Florida, and that’s what we do around here. We can’t be completely original all of the time.
Kind, intelligent and attractive people. Please feel free to procreate. The world would benefit from more people like these two.
Hybrid Owners Rock,
Oh the joys of photographing a wedding or engagement shoot at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. I always try to contain myself and act like a normal and sane human being whenever a couple wants to do their session at Vizcaya, but I tend to run around like Maria in The Sound of Music:
See that? That’s me at Vizcaya, whirling around like a crazy lady singing D0-Re-Mi in the sheer delight of being in the most beautiful location in all of Miami and South Florida. That’s a fact!
Can we all just take a moment to notice how Angel was able to somehow successfully incorporate the colors of her wedding into the engagement shoot without looking super match-matchy? Kudos to you, Angel.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I love couples who love each other and love being around each other. I am so looking forward to the wedding!
Realizing It’s Been Too Long Since I’ve Watched The Sound Of Music,
You’ve got to love people who are willing to brave absurd temperatures for photos!
Jose and Cindy flew all the way to Florida from New York City to have their wedding on the beach. During one of their planning trips, we were able to fit in an engagement session, which they wound up using to decorate the reception at the wedding (wedding photos to follow soon).
Thankfully, the weather is now starting to cool down, so the most difficult of the South Florida Heat Wave of Death has passed and we can enjoy their photos in (relative) comfort.
Thankful For Brave Souls,
