Here is another lovely color palette from the inspired bride. I'm biased of course, but c'mon, this is awesome. Beach or garden wedding would be lovely.

Solutions Bridal Jim Hjelm Trunk Show - Gainesville, FL Event Photographer

We were delighted when Jessica @SolutionsBridal invited us to be a part of the Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dress trunk show. Their dresses are simply fabulous and there are so many styles that can easily be worn again without looking too "bridesmaidy". They've still got plenty of styles that are bridesmaidy & absolutely gorgeous.

Check out some of the dresses and the lovely ladies of Solutions Bridal. The skilled staff helped brides and their discerning moms and bridal attendants narrow down the choices.

Of course, Solutions - a Gainesville Bridal Boutique has gorgeous bridal gowns out the wazoo in all kinds of styles. Accessories and shoes to the delight of the brides.

A lot of brides came in to try on wedding gowns or have their mom or attendants try on some of the fabulous Jim Hjelm dresses. We even got to see a bride find *her* dress. Oh and the shoes. Dang Gina, if they don't have some HOT shoes there.

We had a great time and have a lot more photos from that day. If you were a bride who came in, email us and we'll send you a few pics from the day.

Cheers! Keep your eye out for some lovely shots of Kari, one of the consultants who modeled a Jim Hjelm dress & has such a knack for looking hot in photos.

i {spy} - inspiration - now, that's how you do royal purple

LOVE this inspiration board by Lucky Designs. Purple is such a gorgeous color but you rarely see it for weddings outside of it's lighter lilac and lavender shades. I'm ready to see it bold and paired with some yummy fall oranges and creams.

Second Shooting - Gainesville FL Wedding Photography

A few times this year I've gotten the opportunity to assist/second shoot with a couple of great photographers, Karlin Connell and Mary Beth Tyson. Besides being awesome photographers with FABULOUS brides, they're pretty fun to work with and learn from. So here's a few of the photos I've caught while working with Karlin a couple of weeks back in Indiantown.

This kid was focused on me the whole way walking towards the aisle!

I love Florida outdoor weddings! So much life and light!

Karlin got an AMAZING shot of this scene (on her blog), so I put my spin on it from one side. The horses were so pretty, but later one tried to lick my head (without permission).

These two were really enjoying their day and I was glad to be a small part of it.

Karlin was absolutely thrilled to have her picture taken. I'm sure she'll post a flattering pic of me at some point in retaliation now... :)

This guy was my kinda people. Just sayin...he rocked the party!

Anyhow, I loved working with those two and look forward to more collaborations in 2010!

We are happy to present K Baby! Mr. Vander himself! - Gainesville, FL Newborn Baby Photography

Remember the bump? Well, Jill traded her bump for a beautiful baby boy named Vander Ellis! LOVE that naaaaaame! Here he is six and a half days old with mommy, daddy, and aunt Ange!

Very Proud Papa.

Aunt Ange is a baby hummer. :-) She calmed Van right down.

Momma Jill lulling the baby.

What a sweet smile! This was as he fell asleep. It was so adorable.

Nothing cute than a puckered up baby mouth.

Autumn & Adam Full Preview Part 2- Gainesville Interlachen, FL Wedding Photographer

More of Autumn & Adam's awesome outdoor wedding! It's reception time!

The bridal party hung out and wet their whistles with some Old Chub from Oskar Blues in Lyons, CO. David and I have been there! *drool colorado*

every guest got an adorable crocheted flower favor PLUS chocolate covered espresso beans. yum!

that's a man who knows how to dip his woman.

there were SO many adorable children at this wedding.

breakin' it down, married style. what!

this photo was taken with available light by David at the same time I took a photo of something else with the flash. This is what we got. I don't think we could do that again if we tried. hmm...

after a while, the dancing queen arrived and entertained us until she passed the boa on to the bride, who wore it fabulously and delighted her nephew.

thriller. last laugh. nuff said.

Pumpkin cheesecake made by mom of the bride. beautiful & so well cut A&A... I must say. ;-)

Isn't his taste to die for? TCO! (that's total cuteness overload for those of you who aren't in the know)

and that's that! hope you enjoyed & hit me up with your comments!
