I met Rebeka on a hot, hot day last summer in a Panera Bread. I knew right away she was a super sweet lady who works hard. Months passed, and finally came the opportunity to work together and capture some family portraits of her daughter C and some headshots of just Rebeka.

Rebeka’s entering a new phase of her life, and her confidence and smile really show how ready she is for this new beginning. She’s a young mom with a great set of friends and family. As a matter of fact, we have a mutual friend in common, Jen Stevenson of Jen Stevenson Photography.

One thing Rebeka did for her session that helped out tremendously was to bring a friend along to keep a close eye on her daughter, C. This way, we had an extra set of hands, and were able to distract C and amuse her for better photos.

You can tell C adores her mom.

I also love the colors they chose for their outfits-coordinating without being exact matches of each other.

Thanks, C, for being so well-behaved on our long shoot. You certainly deserve that popcorn reward you earned!

Rebeka, thank you so much for coming out and making some portraits. I hope you treasure your images for years to come and I wish you so much happiness and success!

It has been a long while since I did a family session. 🙂 Let me introduce you to Melanie and her sweet family.

They came out to see me in Lake Buena Vista for a family session for Melanie’s mom as a birthday gift.

And it was little T’s birthday weekend too! She was turning the big 7 and was so happy to mug for the camera for me. She was so sweet and cute. I love this photo of her when we were trying to go for a serious look!

I loved the families outfits, coordinating, but T, Melanie, and David are still each showing off their own style. They even did an outfit switch to a more formal look as well. 🙂

Melanie has a great smile, and she better, because she is in school to be a dental hygienist and eventually, a dentist.

It was so wonderful to meet you all and I hope you love your photos as much as I do!

If these pinwheels don’t say fun summer wedding, I don’t know what does!

I first met Lynn and Chris in my neck of the woods for their engagement session over at Disney’s Boardwalk. You can check it out here.

They were (and are!) perfect for each other. While I was taking their engagement shots, Lynn told me that she and Chris didn’t date for a super long time, just a few months, before getting engaged. I admire that, because when you know, you just know and that’s all there is to it!

Their courtship reminds me of the quote from Harry Met Sally: “…When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” 🙂

Lynn and Chris also embraced the black diamond engagement ring trend, which I love. It’s something different and lets you stand out from the crowd. 🙂 They went nontraditional on the wedding bands too.

Chris is an aspiring chef and made the food for the wedding day himself (with Lynn’s help). They had two food stations: “Love is Spicy” with Mexican food and “Love is Sweet” with lots of homemade desserts.

Rather than carry flowers, Lynn opted to carry and then release a bouquet of balloons in honor of those that couldn’t be at the wedding, but were surely there in spirit.

The favors were perfect for the July 4th weekend wedding.

Lynn’s grandma was a tremendous help to her in planning, so we had to make sure we got a shot of the newlyweds and Grandma together, even if we had to follow Grandma home to get it! 🙂

Hope you two had an awesome time on your honeymoon in A.C.!

I just want to say a great big THANK YOU to Lynn and Chris for the chance to shoot over at Disney Boardwalk. I’ve been wanting to do a shoot there since before I even moved to Florida and launched KWP (Kristen Wynn Photography), so it was so great of you two to come out to my neck of the woods for a shoot.

We had a ton of fun and Boardwalk is just gorgeous.

The day was a bit chilly, but we made it through and luckily, it warmed up a bit by the afternoon.

Also, Lynn’s shoes and dress were really cute and made for a great twirling photo.

I can’t wait to shoot your wedding on July 3rd! We’re going to have so much fun! 🙂
