    Shot a destination wedding for a very sweet couple all the way from Wisconsin yesterday. They had it around sunset at the Doubletree Beach Resort in North Redington Beach.

    The forecast and satellite imagery was predicting heavy rain from about 6:30pm until almost 9:00pm, and I was so worried for them!

    I arrived almost an hour earlier than requested, just in case they ended up needing to start the ceremony earlier, but everything panned out so amazingly! The weather stayed clear - for some miraculous reason - and the sunset ceremony was gorgeous! The weather truly was amazing after all was said and done!

    I'll have to post some of the pictures on my blog and share them with any of the destination brides looking for locations in Florida. :)

    I hope any/all of the other August 16th Florida weddings here went well!

    Just checked out your blog. I really admire your style Samantha. I love shooting photos and it's my newest hobby. I hope you don't mind answering a question of mine, how do you get shots on the beach with the couple kissing and the sunlight hitting the lens a certain way to create that neat effect? Was it by accident? I'm sure it was planned but how do you obtain those results?

      Thank you for your very sweet compliments. It's always nice to hear when someone else likes your work! :)

      You can get that little burst of light in between two people's lips by getting them to stand still just long enough to position yourself (and your camera) to catch it. A little bit of subtle fill flash helps illuminate their features so they don't just become silhouetted against the sunset (unless that's the effect you're going for!)

      If you're talking about getting a nice lens flare for effect, you can get it by pointing your lens at just the right angle in the sun's direction. When that non image forming light comes in and hit's the camera's sensor, lens flare is what you get!

      Hope I answered that okay. I can ramble on sometimes, without making any real sense at all. LOL :)

      Keep up with the photography! It's one of the most interesting and beautiful art forms out there. (Not that I'm biased or anything.) :)

      Nice, thanks for the tip. Now I just need a model to practice on :0) It made perfect sense btw.
