Since we are all trying to stay away a bit more nowadays, the size of weddings has shrunk somewhat. So the trend is towards ‘elopements’ which are not really elopements, just small weddings…with full knowledge of the fam back home.
We need a new name for the tiny weddings…maybe micro wedding…elopement implies the couple are making a major ‘break with tradition.’ It’s up to them, but, generally we like to do what cultures suggest we do…
And so the world is elevated a little by this beauty. This moment. The capturing of which we are blessed to have been a small part of. Where there is true love there is a legend in the making. These two young souls have the makings of legends.
She wanted the elopement video, so we made that happen. Young, savvy and both fast, really fast runners. Like all young people should be, their visit to the Florida Keys was packed with honeymooning trips that would satisfy even the radd-est adventurer. Wishing I had accompanied them on the trip with my camera….
There was an epic back country honeymoon fishing trip, by the photos she sent my way…she out-fished him. Setting the tone for the future Mr & Mrs ‘Fish-On’ Bynum.
And just saying those two things ‘honeymoon & fishing’ in the same sentence show us what kind of a life these two are going to have….lucky kids is all I can say. I Super Love you Kayla and Anthony. Congrats. Smooochhhesss
It was just a change of a few details that brought them to me in Key Largo at Kona Kai Resort. I am so blessed beyond my understanding to have met them and had them with me for their beautiful ceremony. Elopement and Wedding Photography & Film is not easy. But we knew these two were unique and super lovely.
And we think they both made the right catch. Their happy smiles and giggles were infectious, the entire resort was lined up at the back cheering them on as they made their way back to do cake and couple shots.
So we went for the complete package with still images and video to share their beautiful story.
For real. The world does, and should, stop when it’s your turn. When the people and things around you bend ever so slightly, without perhaps even looking, in your direction. To catch a glimpse or steal a peek.
The noise of the ocean, boats, the palms, birds gently drop to a whisper, the hush comes over your space. Dolphin fins break the waters surface. A magical un-written silence befalls any revelry, even the cats stop, regally poised and gaze upon that mysteriously impregnable bubble that encompasses you for your pledge of love, vow of commitment, statement of life time bonding.
Kayla and Anthony surprised me every step of the way. From hello to thank you. The thank you, like the hello, comes from such an obviously deep embrace for the love in the world. It came out in this way in our photographs, but also in her reaction to them.
“Still swooning. I definitely cried viewing them. You are so talented. Idk how you did it but you captured us so perfectly. Every time I look at them I relive the best day of my life & that is exactly what every bride should feel. Needless to say you exceeded our expectations. You will forever hold a special place in my heart & I just know our paths crossed for a reason. You will be a lifelong friend. Please send me where to drop a review of your amazing work. We love you Nada “
North Carolina Engagement Photography
We met over the phone, Ashley needed a wedding photographer for her New Years Eve wedding but she got a North Carolina engagement photographer at the same time.
This couple have an exciting life. Their wedding is epic and we have not even had it yet. One thing I know, heading to the Dry Tortugas for a photo shoot will put this photographer in a great mood. I am so excited to know you and can’t wait to see you all again in the Florida Keys.
