Craig and Kelly are an adventurous couple who paint outside the lines. They had an exotic destination wedding in the Maldives (Indian Ocean) and a beautiful destination reception on Florida’s Emerald Coast. I really enjoyed shooting their beach house event, which featured a rich variety of fun-loving friends and family from coast to coast. I have rarely met a more relaxed and easy-going group of people. I was delighted and honored to serve as their photographer.
Please enjoy the photos below and their multimedia slideshow.
Thanks to the following vendors for their collegiality and cooperation:

Is that two brides and grooms? Yes! Another pair were getting married a couple houses down and came over to say hi.
A couple more candid portraits.
Florida dance floor.
Choosing an exposure to show movement resulted in these ghostly figures and cool multi-colored shadows from the DJ lights.
Bride and friends share a laugh.
…and a phone pic.
I love crazy reception action.
Interesting kiss, action, and layering.

Sometimes the “candid” includes candid interaction with the photographer. These guys were having some crazy fun. I love it.
