Another dreamy Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park wedding this month!

It was a beautiful, intimate Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park wedding that Lindsay and Russ chose to get married in. It was such a special location because it felt like being immersed in a tropical paradise. Their love is so inspiring and we are truly honored to have been part of your wedding. It doesn’t get better than recreating the romantic atmosphere for these two. Going up the lighthouse and exploring the amazing surroundings was the icing to the cake. Enjoy some of our favorites from this lighthouse wedding.

“If you like Piña Coladas, and getting caught in the rain” then you will love this Key Largo Lighthouse wedding!

Andrea and Lee have been together 6 years. This Phili couple met at a party where Andrea was dressed as Harley Quinn and Lee was the only person who knew her costume…they’ve been inseparable ever since! He’s a Philadelphia Police Officer and she’s a nurse at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. These are two extremely hard working people very dedicated to their jobs and making the world a better place. We truly appreciate what you guys do! They decided to come all the way from Philadelphia to have their dreamy Key Largo Lighthouse wedding.

It seriously was a perfect day to get married: the sun was out, a perfect Florida “spring”. March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers, except there was a little twist, it was more like April flowers bring forth May showers. It decided to sprinkle a bit right before the ceremony so it was no biggie. We thought we were safe until, right as they were about to make their debut as Mr & Mrs into their reception at the Key Largo Lighthouse during their wedding, it started to pour! Thank goodness for the amazing DJ Russ for saving the day. He didn’t let a little rain get in the way so, while we were all huddled under his DJ tent, he started playing “It’s raining men”. Everyone came out and danced, by the time the song was over, the skies cleared up and the night was amazing! It was such a fun crowd to work with, we really enjoyed Andrea and Lee’s family and friends that made it one memorable Key Largo wedding!

Their first dance was just the “perfect symphony” as that’s exactly what they danced to. Special shout out to Lee & Andrea’s dear friends “Drew & Keturah” who flew in to sing their first dance song live.

Fun fact about Andrea and Lee: these guys love music, video games, and sports (especially football!). They had the coolest, most original Eagles wedding cake ever!

At only 4 days young, little Sofia made it into the modeling world. Yes, she is already a natural! Despite the little hiccup and challenge trying to get this little one to “be asleep”, we did it! She sure is a clever little lady and way too advanced in age already. Working with Sofia we can already tell she is going to be the true baby boss in this Cardiello trio of kids.

We’ve enjoyed working with our dear Cardiello friends once again, two babies later and counting..(maybe, right?)

We love you guys and are so happy to have been able to capture these precious moments with your newest addition. Enjoy some of our favorites from little Sofia and her siblings:

Tree Tops Park Family Session

Janel, Esteban & Noah

We’ve been photographing Janel & Esteban since their engagement session back in 2010. We’ve shot their wedding, after wedding even an underwater session. We’re so excited for a very overdue session but this time with the whole family: 8 years later and with the cutest little man, Noah!

Noah is now over a year old so they decided to come down from Orlando to do their family session at the Tree Tops Park in Davie. They’re hard core fans of Barça so they had to represent! It was so much fun shooting these cuties. The best part was getting little Noah to laugh, especially with his grandpa! This is definitely one of our favorite stages in the toddler life.

Check out some of our dear friends cute family session. We love you guys so much, thank you for coming down to see us and letting us capture your beautiful family!

Louisiana Wedding

Maria + Randy

  • Share Post

When our friend Maria told us she got engaged and was getting married in Louisiana and wanted us to be her photographers, we were seriously thrilled. First thing we said: NOLA HERE WE COME!

Destination weddings are always so exciting, especially when your friends (now family) are going to be there! Everyone came out from Georgia, Cleveland, Florida, all over the state. It was the perfect occasion to get together and celebrate and of course, have some fun!

This destination wedding took place in Slidell, Louisiana at the gorgeous Palmettos on the Bayou

Nothing says Louisiana more than this amazing venue surrounded by Spanish Moss, swamp, trees, string lights and more! It is located on Bayou Bonfouca and sits on the site of Roberts Landing. The waterfront location, surrounded by the stunning foliage of the marsh, provides a beautiful and natural backdrop for an outdoor wedding. Maria and Randy couldn’t have chosen a more perfect location to say their “I Do’s”.

This was such a beautiful and emotional wedding! Fun fact: all of Maria’s accessories represented all her nieces and the pieces they wore on their big day. The Tiara has been through many generations of Maduri girls, not only did this bride witness each of her nieces and daughter get married in it, but now she got to wore it herself. It’s like she had a little piece of each of her favorite girls on her. Such a special detail!

We really enjoyed spending this long weekend in Louisiana and couldn’t have had it any other way! Gators, raccoons, swamp, wedding, wild boar and crawfish! Thank you guys for letting us capture your big day, enjoy some of our faves!

Mississippi and Georgia: Happily. Ever. After.
