St. Timothy's Catholic Church is such a lovely place to have a formal wedding. The unique architecture and the "in the round" setting give it a personal feel. We always enjoy photographing there and Renee and Kevin's wedding was no exception.
We started the day as we normally do, arriving early and checking in to make sure there is nothing out of the ordinary we need to be aware of. We do this regardless of how many times we have photographed at a location as you can never be certain of what may await you on any given day. Things were business as usual and after putting everyone at ease we went to work. The most stressful time of any wedding is before the ceremony. This is when nerves are on edge as everyone is making sure everything is just so. We try our best to help during this time so that the couple can relax and enjoy their day. Be it pinning boutonnieres, finding personnel for questions, even bustling dresses and fixing veils, we are there to lend a hand. Of course we are photographing all the while and making sure that every detail is captured for prosperity.
Come ceremony time we are as unobtrusive as possible. This is why we are all gathered and we show all the respect and courtesy possible. Brian can be surprisingly quiet for a man of his stature and we have the equipment and training to get the images without causing a distraction. Afterward is a different story as this is when formal portraits are to be taken. Brian takes stage front and center as I do all I can to keep things flowing and everyone looking their best. We strive to make formal portraits go quickly and keep it light and fun so everyone can enjoy themselves.
Reception took place at TPC Tampa Bay where we turned things over to the staff and D.J. We took advantage of the time allowed for guests to arrive by capturing some more images of the bridal party and the bride and groom on the lovely grounds of the golf course. Once the party started we switched gears to a more candid style of photography. Of course we took any group photo requests but our primary goal is to capture the events of the evening as they happen.
We really enjoyed our time with Renee and Kevin and are honored they chose us as their wedding photographers.
