Amy and Mike were married in a beautiful spring ceremony over in Harmony, Florida. The colors were yellow and blue, and the weather was beautiful.


This photo above was taken by Jen Stevenson, the second shooter.

Amy is an avid runner, and she even had tennis shoes to put on under her dress in her wedding colors.

This wedding had a lot of great professionals working behind the scenes. Thanks so much to Michelle, the Harmony coordinator, and the following wedding pros!

Second Professional Photographer: Jen Stevenson Photo

Hair Styling: Re Jones in the Salon and Spa on the Boulevard in Melbourne, Florida

Floral: Beautiful Bouquets and Baskets in Palm Bay, Florida

Ceremony Venue: Cat Lake in Harmony, Florida

Reception Venue: Harmony Golf Club in Harmony, Florida

After the ladies’ prep, we headed over to meet the groomsmen and get a few shots around the golf course.

You can really see how nice the weather was with the blue sky and the clouds.

After Amy was dressed, we did a matching golf course shot for her as well.

Amy had a special surprise for her dad-a horse-drawn carriage to take them to the ceremony at Cat Lake. After the ceremony, the bride and groom rode away in the carriage as well before starting their portraits. It was definitely something unique that the guests were excited to see.


The sunset was glowing orange through the trees, so there were a lot of opportunities for beautiful photos with that light.

After some additional photos in the field of wildflowers at Harmony, we headed to the reception. There, Amy and Mike had a candy buffet and, instead of one wedding cake, they had a collection of dessert cakes.

After an evening of dancing, the newlyweds exited to a bubble send-off and climbed into the limo to start their new lives together. Please enjoy your fabulous honeymoon in New Zealand; it will be amazing! Congratulations and thank you so much for having Kristen Wynn Photography as your wedding day photographer.

Jessica made for a beautiful and fun bride over on Anna Maria Island last weekend. She and Michael both live in Tampa, and had their wedding ceremony and reception close to home at the always popular Beachhouse.

Michael’s family came down from Wisconsin to join in the festivities too!

The day started with the ladies getting ready at Anna Maria Island Inn while the men were getting ready in a rented home just up the road in Bradenton Beach.

I loved working with Jessica and her bridesmaids in the little alleyway behind the inn. Jessica wore her hair long and loose, and she went barefoot for the ceremony on the sand. Her niece served as one of the flower girls.

It was great to be back at the Beachhouse again-I was last there for Jennifer and Bill’s wedding in Spring 2010, and I love the great sunsets that Anna Maria Island gets. Earlier in the day, it looked like rain, but there wasn’t a drop in the sky by the time we started the ceremony and formals afterwards.

The ceremony was set for right before sunset under a draped canopy, with the reception to take place in the adjoining pavilion. And we were able to squeeze in many portraits of the bride and groom together prior to sunset too!

Due to the sun setting, we moved fast through all the portraits (and my leggings got soaked in the ocean by a rogue wave!), but Jessica and Michael are so easy to work with and so fun, we really got to maximize our time.


Expert Disc Jockeys
provided the evening’s entertainment, and the dance floor was certainly packed. Jessica’s sister gave a heartfelt toast, as did the best man, and there were some tears.

Jessica and Michael, I just loved working with you two on your big day. Thank you so much for having me aboard for your wedding day-it was truly beautiful!

What great photos. The difference between a good photographer and a GREAT one. I love it all! Writing to ANGIE'S LIST today and any other consumer's list to make a RECOMMENDATION. Thank you for capturing this event so that I could feel like I was there. Jessie and Mikey look very happy. Jessica you look AMAZING.

Dawn and Justin live in my neck of the woods and were married last Saturday at the beautiful McKee Garden in Vero Beach. McKee has so many spots for photos-it is easy to see why Dawn and Justin chose this location (and Al the wedding coordinator and the catering manager were SO wonderful there as well!). I only wish we had more time to explore and get more portraits, but the wedding day is often so pressed for time.

Makeup services were performed at Dawn’s home by
Michelle Marie, catering was provided by Elizabeth Kennedy Catering, and entertainment was provided by DjQuae. Dawn’s gown boutique was Aurora Unique Bridal Boutique in Melbourne, FL.

And the names Dawn and Justin seemed to cause a bit of confusion throughout the day…the minister accidentally referred to Dawn as Diane, and the DJ later called Justin by the name of Jason! But rest assured, Dawn and Justin are the correct names. 🙂


There was laughter during the ceremony!

They chose black, white, gray/silver, and red as their wedding day colors.

Dawn’s three children played the part of flowergirls and ringbearer.

Justin’s groomsmen wore white tuxedos, and he wore the classic black tuxedo and white vest.

Dawn actually is originally from New Jersey, and she even reminded me of my other New Jersey bride,Melissa. Do you see the resemblance?

I love the light in her eyes in this one! Dawn was willing to lay down in the grass for me–hard to find a bride that is willing to do anything to get the shot!

After creating portraits around the garden with the couple, they were introduced into their reception at the Education Building on-property, where dinner was served inside, and later, their candy buffet was unveiled. Dancing took place on the patio outside, and I heard a little rumor that there was a fun after party event taking place, carrying the celebration well into the night!

I hope you enjoyed your well-deserved honeymoon cruise, Dawn and Justin! It was great to work with such a laid-back couple–thank you SO much for having me as your photographer!

I felt like Kristen was part of the family .She did a great job and kept everything moving. She not only captured, but contributed to a great day.

After applying the last of her red lipstick and adjusting her vintage-inspired birdcage veil, Becky looked into the mirror at her transformation and exclaimed, “I really look ‘not of this era’!” Her wedding day look came together perfectly.

Venue: Chesapeake Resort, Islamorada
Catering: Paella Tropical

The threat of Hurricane Irene couldn’t stop Becky and Saign. In the week leading up to their wedding, it formed off shore and started heading toward Florida. Fortunately, it passed through Florida just a day or two prior and Islamorada, in the the middle Keys, was spared. I know many brides were not so lucky, and my thoughts are certainly with them and the other victims of the storm.

Becky and Saign had an all-outdoors event, and the weather ended up being beautiful! It only rained for about twenty minutes during the ladies’ formals, and then the rest of the day was clear skies.

This day was a celebration of their relationship and marriage, and also a reuniting of sorts, as the two of them were dealing with a long-distance relationship the past year while Becky finished her schooling and became a doctor. In fact, on their sweetheart table, I love that her signs said “Dr. and Mr.” instead of “Mr. and Mrs.”

Their rambunctious dog Ada served as ringbearer. She escaped a few times from her collar and took off, leading to a chase to capture her. Ada’s a Weimaraner, and the breed’s beauty has been captured by photographer William Wegman for decades now-he actually has the cover story in Professional Photographer’s August 2011 issue.

The bride and groom shared a special first look since they were being married and having the reception at the same location, so this allowed them to spend time with their guests post-ceremony.

Becky really put her own touches into her wedding and did a lot of DIY including her hair and makeup. They were married on the beach in a ceremony performed by a close mutual friend.

Not to be outdone in the DIY-department, Saign, a propmaker by profession, crafted the couple’s wedding bands.

At the end of the night, the bride and groom departed through a sea of sparklers. After their Caribbean honeymoon, Becky and Saign are tackling a new adventure and moving to Washington State for what I think will be an amazing opportunity for Becky’s career. I wish you two all the best. It was a pleasure to work with you!

I have been getting more into prints and products lately, and I created this necklace for Jen Stevenson of Jen Stevenson Photo. Jen sent me over this adorable photo of her two little girls, and then we incorporated their initials and the year their family was established on charms via Kotori Jewelry.

A wide variety of other jewelry is available as well, so email me at kristen@kristenwynnphotography.com to see all of the offerings!

I also had this 24×36″ mounted print ordered from Mike and Kim’s destination wedding.

Go big with your prints because once they are in the space, they are just the right size! These prints can be mounted alone or placed in a frame as well.

You can email kristen@kristenwynnphotography.com for custom photo product needs. Christmastime is just around the corner! 🙂

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of getting to do a wedding for two wonderful people. I call these two a dynamic duo. They came from different parts of the country (Danielle from New Jersey and Dustin from Indiana), met in law school and landed jobs as lawyers right out of school as well, which is just amazing in this economy.

Their success and the fact that they have it all together really makes them role models to me.

At MGM Studios in Walt Disney World, one of their favorite spots, Dustin popped the question with Danielle’s whole family there at the end of The Great Movie Ride!

Dustin and Danielle were seated right across from me at Megan and Chris’s wedding last fall and I was so, so thrilled when they brought me on board for their big day. And it was SO great to see Megan and Chris again at this wedding too!

I love the two latest trends in bridal fashion-first, it is that dresses with straps or sleeves are back. Strapless has been popular the past five years or so, but sleeves are definitely back in style and I just love the look!

Danielle’s dad had a great reaction to seeing his daughter all ready on her wedding day.

Additionally, wearing the veil over the face is back in style and it is so romantic. LOVE that this is back in a big way.

Hair and Makeup: One Flight Up Salon, Fort Myers Beach
Ceremony Venue: Blessed Pope John XXIII, Fort Myers
Reception Venue: Holiday Inn Fort Myers Beach
Entertainment: DJ Ron Rutz

You know I love those first looks. Danielle and Dustin did their first look and took a private moment to exchange heartfelt cards.

Danielle’s younger sister Caitlin served as maid-of-honor and Danielle’s whole family was in from up north-they were just so, so great to be around. And Dustin’s family came in from Indiana as well!

During their ceremony, the priest referenced the movie “The Notebook,” and talked about writing down your thoughts on the first day you are married, during your honeymoon, and re-reading it over the years and adding more to it. This was one of the best homilies I have ever heard at a wedding; it really seemed like he was speaking right to Dustin and Danielle alone, who sat on chairs in front of the altar.


On the way back down the aisle during the recessional, Dustin’s dad reached out and shook his hand and gave him a pat on the back. I really loved that moment-those little unexpected things are what make a wedding great.


I think Dustin looks like Shia LeBouef!

Danielle and Dustin shared a second ceremony, a sand ceremony, on the beach with their guests. It ended just in time for a spectacular west coast Florida sunset. I was a little nervous we wouldn’t get a good sunset since it had been overcast a bit that day, but sometimes, you just have to wait it out. August in Florida is so hot and sometimes rainy, but those sunsets really are worth it.

This is actually the most images I’ve ever taken at a wedding, ever. We had a great timeline and a lot of time to make images.

I love that they incorporated a lot of Disney touches into their day, with cufflinks, a pocket watch, cake toppers, and a special handmade guest book, which honored where they got engaged and where they honeymooned. Getting to visit Disney a lot is definitely a perk of being a Florida resident. 🙂

Their first dance was choreographed and ended with a perfect dip.

Congratulations, Danielle and Dustin! I hope your minimoon at Walt Disney World was fabulous, and that your upcoming honeymoon is even more fabulous! Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special day!

That sunset is too beautiful to be real! That's the one perk of living in FL. Great work Krysten!

They’ve been together since their senior year in high school, dated during their time together at UCF, moved to a new town to start their careers, and now, eight years after they started dating, they are getting married!

Kenny is an engineer and Laura currently is employed in a local bridal salon, which is always great when you are planning your own wedding.

When I was brand new to this state and knew no one, Laura was the only person, seriously, the only person that helped me get a job interview. She didn’t even know me, but she stuck her neck out for me, and I will always appreciate that. That’s just who she is, always kind and willing to help others.

Kenny proposed with a ring he picked out on his own, a princess cut diamond, while they were spending the weekend away together. It was a really romantic proposal since he did it on a chartered boat during a sunset cruise!

For engagement photos, we started off on a hot August Sunday at the University of Central Florida, then we headed to Winter Park to finish off the session. After the session, I got to hear all about their wedding plans and I can’t wait-winter weddings are the best! Of course, I’m a little biased since I had a winter wedding myself, but they are indeed the best.

And come this winter, we won’t have to worry about the Florida heat for photography either.

Laura and Kenny, thanks so much for having your engagement photos done with Kristen Wynn Photography and I’m looking forward to your beautiful wedding! It goes without saying that I cannot wait to see your gown, Laura!
