Weddings are especially exciting to photograph. To document one of the biggest days in a person’s life is quite the responsibility. Chris and Lisa traveled from up north for their destination wedding at Grand Plaza Resort in St Petersburg FL. Their families were wonderful and relaxed; they made me feel like part of the family.
I was really impressed with the venue they choose. My husband and I had stayed there for an anniversary and loved it, especially the revolving rooftop restaurant. This was my first time shooting there, though. Having photographed many beach weddings I liked that this spot because it had a designated area marked by the flanking palm trees. The sun was still pretty high and bright but I was able to use the trees to block the sun in a few pictures and I think they provide a great pop of color. It also has great white sandy beaches and it’s not usually overly crowded.
This was a short and sweet two hour wedding but it was perfect and we were able to get all the important photos in that time.
Congrats to the happy couple!
