Tampa Wedding Photographer: Avila Wedding

Tampa Wedding Photographer

Avila Wedding

As a Tampa wedding photographer, I get to photograph all over Tampa. Whether, small, or big, the wedding size doesn’t really matter to me. What matters is the people I get to meet.

I love this bride and her family. When her big sister got married two years ago, I was there, too (click here to see that gorgeous day). Now, two years later, it was Alicia’s turn to be wed. I am so glad she met Daniel. Honestly, they seem so perfect for each other. Do you remember their amazing engagement session a few months back? Click here if you don’t.

Of course, there are way too many photos to share from their Tampa wedding. The hardest part of being a Tampa wedding photographer is cutting images down…is that just me? We began getting ready at the Avila Country Club. The threat of rain loomed the entire day; which can be stressful if you let it be. As we loaded up to head to St. Lawrence Catholic Church the rain finally began. Unfortunatley, the rain almost cancelled our “first touch” part of the wedding day. However, we stuck it out and I am so glad we did! Those brief moments together before walking down the aisle just gave a minute of quiet in a hectic day.

So, sit back enjoy the look back at their gorgeous day.

As a Tampa wedding photographer, you have to be prepared for rain! Thankful for my awesome assitant photographer that day, Reilly, to hold my umbrella and haul in my gear in the rain and wind <3

Here you can see the rain falling as they had their wedding first touch outside of St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Tampa. Loved all the windows and doors!

Being prepared is a big part of the wedding industry. We had recommended clear umbrellas just in case, adn it worked out perfectly for a few quick formal portraits at the church.

After a short drive back to Avila, we were back to wedding details and I loved the signs the couple incorporated into their day! These were wonderfully made by Pallets and Planks (https://www.instagram.com/palletsandplanks/). They are great for added wedding decor. More importantly, the signs can be reused as art in their home!

Don’t you love the simplicity of the cake by Alessi Bakery? the colorful roses from The Potting Shed set it off for a traditional and beautiful wedding cake.
