Before I am a photographer, I am a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend. Maybe that's why I cry during every father daughter dance. I laugh at every toast. I well up when an Officiant pronounces a couple husband and wife. I buzz with joy chasing children around the playground. I feel awe when a newborn's tiny hand clutches my pinky finger. I draw from the emotions I have experienced through my own life's most precious moments to know when and how to capture those of others, and I usually can't help feeling overwhelmed myself! The emotional rush I feel when I'm behind the camera is what makes me love what I do. The joy I bring others through photography is what makes me do what I love.

Kim and Kamal :: Orlando, Florida Wedding :: Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

Kim and Kamal were married at a gorgeous sunset ceremony at the stunning Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes Hotel & Resort last month.

It was such a joy to be able to spend the weekend with Kim and Kamal and their lovely families.

Kim was simply stunning on her wedding day. Her dress was gorgeous.

I was so privileged to have the talented Sarah Hodzic {Blink Photography} accompany me as an additional photographer. I love this shot she took of Kim's father walking her down the aisle.

This image below is one of the amazing images Sarah captured. I simply adore it.

And this is the same set up, but from my point of view.

Below is another gorgeous image captured by Sarah.

One of the things I love about shooting with someone else is that there are two perspectives, two points of view.

I love this image below from Sarah.

I truly adore this image that Sarah captured during the father daughter dance.

You can see more of my favorites in the Slideshow! To see all of the images from the Wedding, plus the Rehearsal Dinner and Bridal Luncheon, please follow this link and register to be notified once the images are released.

Kim and Kamal, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your beautiful wedding day! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
