Coolest Palm Beach Wedding Venues // A Photographer's Guide

Ah Palm Beach County, FL... The land of golf courses, polo clubs, beach resorts, boujee ballrooms and corporate venues with obscenely overpriced steak tartare. Not your scene? Yeah me either! But I do live here, and I have recently uncovered some pretty damn good alternatives to the typical "wedding-y" spots. So if you happen to be getting married in this neck of the woods, and are trying desperately to avoid the seemingly endless search results for barf-tastically outdated wedding venues, and instead are looking for something a little more creative, eclectic or dare I say "off beat", then this is the list for you! As a traveling wedding photographer, I've seen all kinds of weird ...

SARAH + DAVID // Key West Wedding

Coolest Palm Beach Wedding Venues // A Photographer's Guide

Regardless of the reason for your visit to Key West FL, you're really only there for one thing... To have a bloody fantastic time! And that's exactly what Sarah and David's wedding weekend was. But rewind about a year and things weren't looking so flash for their Key West wedding plans. A hurricane ripped through the Keys and all but leveled a number of potential wedding sites. Some were more worse for wear than others, but the reality struck regardless that this sliver of paradise at the southern most point of the United States is prone to some rather destructive weather patterns... Not ideal when you're trying to plan your dream wedding in the place that means so much to you.So ...

HANNAH + MAX // Joshua Tree Adventure Session

Coolest Palm Beach Wedding Venues // A Photographer's Guide

Hannah and Max visit Joshua Tree National Park pretty much every chance they get. They kept saying how they can't believe it's so close to LA but so many Southern Californians don't bother to actually enjoy the amazing wilderness that surrounds them. I couldn't agree more (although I don't mind having less people around). Anyway, as a nature loving pair of hikers, it only felt natural to spend some time documenting their chemistry amongst this beautiful and meaningful landscape.Aside from the epic scenes we stumbled across together... the experience was full of memorable moments! Namely, my eventful and unplanned run in with a cactus, and Max's heroism in a mad dash back to the car to ...

    Click play for the slideshow // Scroll for the highlights    I've always said, you can tell a lot about a couple by the way they choose to celebrate their love. What they care about, what they enjoy, what family and friends mean, and what a good time looks like to them. Needless to say, I learned a lot about Mary and Adam through this epic celebration! They have an amazing group of loved ones who made their wedding an awesome experience to be a part of from start to finish. That's a testament to the kind of people they are. Welcoming, generous and just plain fun!Not only was their wedding held at my all time favorite venue to photograph, ...

    Click play for the slideshow // Scroll for the highlights     I love what I do. Especially when I get to do it for friends who are living a great story. And the Ingles family is certainly living a great story.Interestingly, we have more than a few things in common... Australians living in the US, chasing passions and loving every minute of it... but also parents of twins. There are some pretty unique challenges that come with these circumstances; distance from family and friends, hectic schedules, the quest for balance between immersing yourself in your passion and personal goals and immersing yourself in your family life whole ...

    Play for slideshow // Scroll for highlights      It's late... and I'm tired. But I love this story so much, I need you to see it. However, I don't think I have enough energy to write eloquently about what this particular wedding meant to me. For now, I'll just say that Amy and Nick's story encapsulates everything I love about this craft and the connections and experience that have come from it. They're just beautiful souls who I feel so fortunate to have met and photographed. I recently emailed them their slideshow, here's what Nick had to say in response:"Dude. DUDE.Holy crap you're good at this! This is truly ...

    Play for slideshow // Scroll for highlights    Katelyn and Carlos met over 8 years ago in New York's JFK airport. Although they were boarding different planes, they were in fact bound for the same destination (in more ways than one). They were both heading to Italy to study abroad in Florence through Syracuse University. Once there, they spent their free days taking in the sights and tastes of this incredible place. Needless to say, along the way they fell in love with the city, and with each other.It's stories like this that reinforce my belief that some relationships are truly fated.One this trip, we revisited their story which took us all over ...

A WEDDING IN EVERY STATE
07/08/2018
Coolest Palm Beach Wedding Venues // A Photographer's Guide

I need to see all of this country... or at least, as much of it as I can. And since wedding photography has long been my vehicle for exploration and expression, I've decided to set myself a task.  To photograph a wedding in every state!  To say photographing weddings is my passion, wouldn't be entirely accurate. It's more like an addiction... or an obsession. There's just no other life event more curiously beautiful or visually exciting to me. I'm not talking about the flowers, the cake or Uncle Bob's rocking dance moves. I'm more interested in the ritual itself... the vulnerability and bravery of two people putting their love on show. Not to mention, the emotional ...
