A few weeks ago I photographed my first wedding of the year at Tampa Bay Watch (link). Stephanie and Matt came all the way from Australia to be married here and everything turned out great, including one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a lot!).

I’ll be honest, it was hot. We had an unseasonably hot January day for Tampa Bay but I don’t care if it’s hot or cold…. rain is the only thing that I don’t want.

Stephanie had mentioned the canoe when we spoke before the wedding. On the wedding day, it quickly became apparent that she really wanted a photograph in that canoe.

Now, the path to the canoe was muddy and I hadn’t done the romantic bridal portraits yet so I tried to talk her out of it. I was happy to do it, but concerned that she would muddy her dress or, God forbid, fall in the mud. But she was determined so we went for it.

I’m so glad she was determined. What a great picture we got!
