Engagement, Palm Beach

A Florida Winter Engagement Session

Yes, you read it right! There are winters in Florida and although they’re very mild compared to the rest of the US, you can see subtle changes in the scenery. I love this season for so many reasons! One of them is because my couples feel more relaxed outdoors when it’s 30 degrees cooler than usual so that’s a bonus.

Last February I had the pleasure of capturing Yvone and Anthony’s engagement session at a park in Palm Beach County, and it was a blast! They let loose and truly enjoyed each moment with each other. Doesn’t it show in their engagement photos?

Until the next park-venture,

Diana

An Intimate Wedding Reception in Delray Beach, FL

These lovebirds got married on the beach right before Ariel’s deployment. About a year later, they were celebrating their union with family and friends in Delray Beach. Ariel looked absolutely stunning, a real life princess. And Dominic, handsome as ever.

They created the most perfect intimate wedding reception, with all decorations crafted around a garden wedding theme. Dominic’s grandma painted small canvases to give as favors, talk about personalizing your wedding details! One of my favorite moments of the night was when Dominic’s younger brother came out dressed as a bear, a direct reference to the couple’s term of endearment. It was not only hilarious, but also a sweet moment for the entire family.

Ariel and Dominic, thank you for letting capture your love and celebration. Wishing you a BEARy happy marriage,

Diana

Palm Beach Engagement Photos at Worth Avenue

Palm Beach is one of the dreamiest places in South Florida; and as an engagement photographer, I feel quite lucky to live just a few minutes away. When my clients ask for a location to photograph their engagement session, the first place that comes to mind is Worth Avenue. It was not different with Catalina and Dan.

We started our session by the iconic Clock Tower which was beautifully lit by the sunrise. Then we wandered the streets and inner yards which we had all to ourselves {one of the perks of planning an early morning photoshoot}. Catalina and Dan are a wonderful couple, and I couldn’t be happier they chose me to capture their love.

So there it is, one of my favorite spots in the area. There’s something for every couple, and I cannot complain about the light colored sidewalks and buildings which reflect a beautiful light onto my clients’ skin making them even more radiant. If you’re looking for a unique place to have your engagement photos taken, let’s meet and I’ll show you all the wonders of Palm Beach.

Until the next adventure,

Diana

Bride, Weddings

A Unique Wedding at a Seaplane Hangar in Vero Beach, FL

Last year I had the pleasure of photographing Grace and Jeremy’s wedding at Treasure Coast Seaplanes in Vero Beach, FL. To date, this has been the most unique wedding venue I’ve been to. Thanks to the beautiful work of their wedding planner, Krystle Andrew, the seaplane hangar ended up looking magnificent.

We started our day with getting ready photos of the bride and groom at Quail Valley At The Pointe Social Club. Then walked over to the adjacent Royal Palm Pointe Park for a heartfelt wedding ceremony. Grace and Jeremy are young in years, but they have this sophisticated nature about them that is timeless.

After family portraits and wedding party photos, it was time to head over to the wedding reception. How much fun it was to see the couple dance with family and friends.

Grace and Jeremy, thank you for letting me capture the beginning of your lives as husband and wife. Wishing you love as endless as the sky and until the next adventure,

Diana

Engagement, Miami

A Fairytale Engagement Session at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, FL

When Katie and Richard asked me to photograph their engagement session at Vizcaya, I swear, I did a little happy dance. Vizcaya is one of my favorite venues in all of South Florida and these lovebirds are, to date, one of the happiest, most in-love couples I’ve ever photographed.

The gardens provided the perfect background to document their fairytale love story, and Katie’s delicate white dress and flower crown completed the look …fit for a princess. Now let’s talk about her engagement ring, how exquisite is it? The deep blue sapphire stone makes a beautiful contrast against her skin tone, and likely is a reminder of her fiancé Richard who happens to be a sailor.

Wishing them a magical life together, and until the next garden-venture,

Diana

Bride, Jupiter, Palm Beach, Weddings

A Charming Wedding at Out of the Blue Waterfront, Jupiter, FL

Remember Lauren and Ed? I photographed their nautical-themed engagement session last year and was so excited when they contacted me to photograph their nuptials! Their wedding ceremony and reception took place at the lovely Out of the Blue Waterfront venue in Jupiter, FL. My favorite part of their big day? The first look which was emotional and romantic.

Once again, this charming couple worked their magic in front of my lens and their wedding photos are pure testament of the love between them.

I can’t thank them enough for allowing me the opportunity to capture such a beautiful love story!

Wishing them happiness as infinite as the ocean,

Diana

A Timeless Wedding at Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Some of you have been lucky to meet your soulmates early in your lives; others like me, have had to wait a little longer. That’s in short the story of Rita and Monty.

Rita has the most genuine smile I’ve ever seen, and Monty can’t keep his eyes off of her. Last Spring I had the pleasure of photographing their timeless love story at the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society.  Their wedding celebration was flawless; with beautiful soft green and peach decorations and the cutest of wedding guests {see the ducklings making an entrance}.

We started the day with a heartfelt first look, one of my favorite moments of the night. Then they sealed their commitment in a ceremony filled with love. The night continued with first dances and toasts, and ended with everyone dancing around the newlyweds.

Rita and Monty’s wedding reminded me that the Universe’s timing is just perfect; when our hearts are ready and open, the right person walks right into our lives.

Wishing them a lifetime of happiness and until the next timeless–venture,

Diana

Engagement

A Rustic Engagement Session For Nature Lovers in Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, FL

Do you know that feeling when you’ve found your person? Andrea and Tim certainly do.

Andrea and I met last year when I photographed one of her fur-kids, Rambo, so I couldn’t be happier when she called this year announcing her engagement.

Andrea and Tim couldn’t be more perfect for each other. They share a love of the outdoors that includes camping, fishing and hunting… you name the adventure, they do it together. So it was no surprise when they asked for an ‘Everglades feel’ for their engagement session and boy did we capture that. The entire session theme came together thanks to all the details Andrea put together, it doesn’t hurt that she is an event planner so I cannot wait to see what she does for her wedding.

Join me in congratulating this adventurous pair which I cannot wait to photograph again.

Until the next nature-venture,

Diana
