Rebecca and Nathan’s son had his second birthday in July, so in August, we got together to do some birthday portraits for him. He was such a good little listener and I just love the images we were able to create! Thanks so much, H. Family, for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography for your portraits! It was a pleasure to work with you!


I love this birthday hat Rebecca brought with her!

Last photo—Malachi shows us how he feels about getting his photo taken 🙂

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!

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.

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!

Brigit’s a photographer from New York State with three adorable kids. We “met” online on a photography board, and over the past year, I’ve gotten to know her. I was so thrilled when she was vacationing in my neck of the woods and we met up for a family session.

If you look at most of my blog and website, you’ll find I’m primarily a wedding and engagement photographer. That’s just what I seem to get the most inquiries for. So I was a little nervous about living up to Brigit’s expectations, since she is a portrait photographer specializing in kids. It is always a little nerve-wracking photographing another photographer.

Brigit’s family had a lot of fun on the beach, and Brigit has a lot of energy to keep up with her kids!

First is Brigit’s son A, who is a great help with his younger siblings.

Then we have the middle child, Miss I.

Miss C:

And Brigit herself:

I titled this one “Photographer’s Children.” Many photographers report that their own children are the least cooperative subjects. I think Brigit’s kids were over the photo session at this point, and this image just makes me laugh. A looks sullen, I is silly, and poor little C is crying. Sometimes, we have to remember these little moments.

They ended the session by jumping in the strong ocean and getting soaked!

I hope you had a safe trip back to New York and enjoyed your time in our sleepy little town! It was so, so, so wonderful to meet you!

OMG- I am in LOVE. You did a fantastic job capturing my monsters (and it wasn't complete torture being infront of the camera!!! lol). I'm SO glad I got to meet you, and I can't say "thank you" enough. Absolutely perfect.

There is so much hope and promise in a young marriage. I met Sarah and Chris a year and a half ago at their apartment in Orlando. We did an engagement session together last April and time passed quickly. Chris graduated, got a job, and the two of them moved to Tampa. Soon, their wedding day was here!

Together, Sarah and Chris have big dreams for the future. I heard Chris’s best man talk about the dream of someday opening a law firm. They have a love of boats, and while they are in their early twenties now, I know that after finishing their educations, they will be well on their way to purchasing one.

Their love of boats and all things nautical led them to a ceremony and reception on the water in Palmetto, Florida.

Hair Styling: Hair by Deb
Accommodations: Palmetto Riverside B&B
Venue: Riverhouse Reef

I loved the area where Chris and the gentlemen got ready. It was built in the early 1900’s and I was just amazed by it. You don’t see older buildings like this much in Florida.

As Chris got ready, he was listening to country music. I remarked that they had great taste in getting ready music. Sarah also brought in a little bit of the country theme by wearing cowboy boots.

I usually take shots of the bride’s shoes, but this time, Chris and his groomsmen had special shoes too.

The men’s outfits matched well with the theme, and after searching around, Chris finally found his watch, which had gone missing earlier in the day.

Sarah’s aunt pitched in to help fashion the bouquets.

Sarah’s an education student in her final year, while Chris works as a paralegal and will be attending law school.

The bridesmaids and bride had a little bet going throughout the night. I can’t reveal here what it was, but I just want to know who won the bet!

Sarah’s gown was extremely heavy, so I give her so much credit for wearing it in the Florida heat. She never even broke a sweat.

Sarah and Chris didn’t do a first look, but they did hold hands around a doorway. Sarah did a first look with her two dads, and the moment was emotional.

The ceremony light was really strong, so I was able to get photos that looked like both this:

And this, by varying my settings.

After the ceremony, the bridal party used the dock and even a boat that one of the owners was nice enough to loan them.

Before going into the reception, we took some bride and groom portraits around the property. The overcast weather really helped with the lighting.

The bride and groom got to enjoy their reception, and just as the sun was setting, we got a last silhouette shot with the sunset in the background.

Sarah and Chris, I hope you had a wonderful time on your cruise! I wish you so much happiness as you sail through life together!

Patrick was an involved groom, and he called me to say that Cindy had found my website and wanted to hire me. They were having a small intimate wedding in my neck of the woods in just a few months. Luckily, I was still available for that day, so I was happy to work with them!

These two have one of the most interesting stories I’ve encountered. They met when they were teenagers, when Cindy came all the way from Germany as a foreign exchange student who was assigned to Patrick’s family. But they were both just kids then, and Cindy had to return to Germany.

Fifteen years later, they happened to reconnect, and on a hot, hot June day, they got married.

The wedding was a hometown affair for Patrick, and some of the best vendors in Brevard came together to make it a success.

Venue: Radisson Suite Hotel Oceanfront in Melbourne Beach
Officiant: Reverend Ann Fuller
Bridal Gown: Mori Lee
Entertainment: Richard Barker with National Entertainment Group

Many of the guests came from Germany. After the reception, Cindy and Pat were headed to an after-party, because, in Germany, according to Cindy, weddings and receptions are much longer than in the US, and the guests wanted to keep having fun. Cindy’s sister and family came all the way from Germany, and her sister served as a bridesmaid.

Reverend Ann officiated, and I absolutely love working with her. She personalizes your ceremony, and mentioned how important family is to Cindy and Pat. Sometimes, when you don’t get married in a church setting, your ceremony can be very brief-almost too brief, and definitely too short for your photographer to grab great shots. But with Reverend Ann, you won’t have that problem. She provides a great ceremony that isn’t too long or too short. It allows you to really have your ceremony and commitment as the focal point for your wedding day!

Patrick’s boutonniere was definitely unique; I love this idea.

Good thing I got a shot of the rings prior to the ceremony, because during the ceremony, there was a little laughter as they both had to push the rings to get them on. Later, I wanted to get an additional ring shot, but they actually couldn’t get them off! The Florida heat will do that to you!

The rain came down before the ceremony and after, but held off for the actual event, and the lighting for the ceremony was just perfect because of it. I love bright overcast for ceremonies instead of full sun. It keeps us all cooler and the photos have less shadows.

Cindy posed for a photo with her daughter, who served as a junior bridesmaid.

Thanks so much, Pat and Cindy, for choosing me as your photographer! I wish you so much happiness!

WOW! We just had a look at the pictures and they are AMAZING, Pat and I love your work! We can't wait to see the rest!

I have to agree with Pat and Cindy! My company did the hair and makeup for this wedding and this is some beautiful photography! I was actually disappointed when I got to the end of the pictures! I want to see more!

Christina’s extended family was in town from up north for a family vacation, so she decided to get some images done! Unfortunately, a few of her grandkids fell sick, but we decided to do the session with the out-of-town relatives anyway. (We’ll have to do another session when the little ones are feeling better!)

The weather on the night of the session was absolutely perfect for beach photography. Christina and her family were so nice and fun, including Christina’s niece, who quickly became obsessed with gathering shells. She even filled up her dad’s shoes with them and had huge handfuls of them as she left the beach. I don’t usually think of Brevard beaches as being good for shells, but I guess I was wrong (at least through the eyes of a child)!

As the light faded, I really enjoyed capturing this silhouette shot for them. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves, so it was nice, unspoiled, and quiet. I hope you guys had a great time creating some images.

Thank you so, so much for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography! 🙂
