Featured Wedding on + Four Seasons Firenze [Florence, Italy Wedding Photographer]

I’m not quite sure how to feel about this other than, jumping up and down in excitement! This couldn’t have came at a better time and point with my photography business.

I had submitted this wedding about six months ago, and when doing so.. You are just playing the waiting game. The Knot, replied immediately after reviewing my wedding and their interest in it. I was extremely excited and stoked as you can imagine!!

I am in the process of re-branding and because of this my website is a bit jankie, at the moment and I was debating on writing about this, but hey why not! How could I not write about this exciting news, and well just get in and accept, and just submerged myself into the happiness of being published! My website is still being finished, and I’m hoping by tonight all will be great in the website world..but until than, let’s ravish in this wonderful news!

This wedding I got featured was from my trip to Italy. I got to photograph my friend, Amanda Perna and Solomon Srul’s wedding! It was a Florence, Italy Wedding. A Four Seasons Firenze Wedding! It was my first Destination Wedding! They are a beautiful couple and our experience of their day has been brought to life through this publication. I am so excited to share this day with everyone! It was an extraordinary out of this world detailed filled, Italy Wedding.

Please take a minute to read about their day on the Knot’s review of their beautiful Italian Garden Wedding.

Taylor and Ben wedding at Sir Tyler Terraces and Port City Community Church, wilmington,nc

It was a beautiful wedding, perfect couple, adorable pieces and details and I can honestly say it’s been one of the best weddings I’ve done because of all the curve balls that were thrown at me and my ability to learn from this wedding as whole. Before this point, I had never taken a full wedding session. This was all day working, and I’m glad that this was the wedding I was able to truly get my feet wet because it definitely showed me how time management is a must! Take a look at this fantastic feature on the budget savvy bride’s blog!!
