Lizzy and Doug – Part 2!!!

Filed under: Wedding — shaycochrane @ 3:30 am

Lizzy and Doug were married last weekend in a beautiful intimate ceremony with family and friends at the Southwyn Mansion in Spring Hill, FL.  Only a week earlier they flew back to the states from school in England!  I had a great time meeting their families and I have had a lot of fun with these images…I generally tend to stay away from trendy editing styles but this wedding totally lent itself to some beautiful vintage style film finishes.  Here are a peak (part 2) at how their wedding images are coming along!  Lizzy and Doug,  thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day.  It was a pleasure to meet you and I wish you both the best life together!

Mike + Janelle = LOVE

Filed under: Wedding — shaycochrane @ 11:50 pm

This past weekend I had the incredible honor of photographing the wedding ceremony for Janelle and Mike on St. Pete Beach.  In the few short hours that I spent with them I was reminded of something…that weddings are about love and marriage and committing your life to someone in the presence of God, family and friends.  Not about committing to that perfect floral arrangement or the designer silk gown or about the biggest wedding party with the largest guest list in the biggest reception hall.  Sometimes we so easily loose sight of the fact that, at the end of the day, whether or not the string quartet started Canon in D at precisely the right moment – and whether or not the weather turned plan A into Plan B, C or D – at the end of the day you are married to your best friend!  It was refreshing to see family and friends come together to celebrate love, instead of celebrating a wedding.  Janelle and Mike, you are a genuinely kind couple with wonderful family and friends – I wish you the most incredible marriage!  Here is a little sneak peak at a few images from their wedding day.
