I remember when Kayla first reached out to me about photographing her wedding. She explained to me they were from Indiana and were coming to Orlando with their two kids to get married on the beach. They decided not to have a reception but to instead take their two children to Disney World. Not a bad way to get married if you ask me. Marry the person you love and then celebrate with your family at Disney. So I knew it would be a shorter wedding day than usual.
When the wedding day came in October of 2018, couldn’t have asked for better weather for a beach wedding. When I arrived at the hotel where they were getting ready things were already in hustle mode. Some changes came that morning concerning the wedding but that wasn’t going to stop it from being a great day. And it was. It was a smaller wedding, just family and their closest friends and a nice small set up on the beach. Everything was picture perfect. Wedding guest brought blankets to sit out on the beach to watch the ceremony. Probably the most relaxed ceremony I’ve photographed.
The ceremony went great. Even the guy shouting congratulations from his hotel balcony brought a laugh to everyone. They had me booked for another couple hours after the ceremony which meant we had plenty of time to get a lot of great photos of them on the beach. And that we did. Usually after a ceremony you’re rushing to get all the shots of family and the bride and groom before the reception begins. But this time I didn’t have to worry about that. Was nice to be able to take my time with them and get a lot of nice portraits of Cody and Kayla.
I’m very happy with how the photos came out and they have expressed to me how much they love their wedding photos as well. I’m pleased to be able to share some of my personal favs from Cody and Kayla’s beach wedding!
