A wedding?!  Yep, you are reading that correctly!  JPSearcy photographed a wedding!  No, this isn’t something that I am doing all the time now, just in special circumstances.  I’ve known the groom for a couple years, and he is a great guy.  And as soon as I met his bride, I fell in love with her immediately.  So, I was honored to photograph their wedding.

Their day started at the park for their bridal portraits.  They opted to do a “first look”.  What that is, is where they see each other before the wedding.  They get to share a special moment, just the two of them, without all of their friends and family to see each other and spend a little time together.  Oh, and get photos taken too ;).  What was unique about their first look, was afterwards, they had allotted lots of time to do all of their wedding photos of them and them with their wedding party.  This was such a great idea, because then after the wedding, they can spend all of their time at the reception with their friends and family.  After their photos, we went back for the ceremony and reception.  It was such a lovely wedding held at home.  And they really lucked out with the best weather day of the season.  All the stars were aligned for them on their special day.

Here are some sneak peeks from their day.  To see more, be sure to check on Facebook – www.facebook.com/jpsearcy.  I will be adding more there as I get them edited:

Next family up on the blog was so much fun to photograph!  Mom had been planning this session for months and Dad was just so happy to be surrounded by his beautiful girls.  I really love photographing families with older kids.  (Of course I love the little ones too 😉 ) But when I have the opportunity to photograph families with older kids, often times, they haven’t done this in many years.  And I promise, it is SO much easier when they are older ;).

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next family up on the blog, is one of my senior rep’s family!  She was so excited to have photos done with her family.  I love photographing senior’s families!  I feel that I get to know the seniors pretty well, it is fun to get the rest of the fam in front of my lens.  They selected Kraft Azalea, which is a pretty popular family shoot location.  It has great light and lots of trees.

Next family session up on the blog, is a super fun family.  I just photographed the oldest for her senior photos.  I love when I have the opportunity to photograph seniors’ entire family!  This family decided they wanted beach photos.  No problem!  Sunrise is early, but so worth it!  We had a beautiful morning to shoot this beautiful family.

I was so happy to finally get the opportunity to photograph this sweet family.  We have been rescheduling for months! But the wait was worth it.  We had a beautiful morning in Winter Park.  And the family was as sweet as could be.

I was so excited to photograph this sweet family.  I met mom and oldest daughter for her senior photos earlier in the summer.  And they were so great to work with!  So, naturally, I couldn’t wait to meet the rest of the family to get some beautiful family photos for them.  We shot at the same place as we did her senior photos (Rollins).  It is a great location for pretty much any age group!  Must be why it is one of my most requested locations.

I was so excited to shoot this family!  The daughter was one of my first seniors eight or so years ago.  And I was so touched when she reached out to me a while ago saying that she and her brother wanted to do something special for their mom.  The grown up kids wanted to give mom a family photo session as a gift.  Such a thoughtful and sweet gift!  I did tell her, it is best if you tell her about the shoot ahead of time (speaking from a mom’s perspective here), not just have her show up and “SURPRISE! Photo time!”  We (moms) absolutely will want the shoot, especially if the kids were the ones who planned it.  But we also want to make sure that we are photo ready, and it is done at a good time for us, so we feel and look our best.  So, that is exactly what the did.  The kids gifted her the session to be held whenever she wanted it.  And let me tell you, if you haven’t had family photos since your kids were little, it is SO MUCH easier now that they are older!  No need to bribe the little ones to sit still, no need to force them to dress nice, just make it a day or afternoon together, photos and then breakfast!  So if you have been putting it off for a while, now is as good of a time as any!

While I still mostly photograph seniors, ’tis the season for family sessions!  And I absolutely love it when I get my senior’s family in front of my camera.  Many are seeing a family session is long overdue, and they need to get in a shoot before the kiddos leave for college.  And let me tell you, if you have high schoolers especially, it is so much easier getting a family photo now that they are big kids  (compared to when they were little kids).  Don’t let the time slip by, you will love looking back on your family photos for years to come!

This is the family of not only a couple of my current senior clients, but also their triplet sister, my rep!  They are a great family!  We have lots and lots of photos of the kids, but mom wanted some of the entire family too.  Even their pup!  There was so much activity going on in that park that day, the pup was far more interested in everything else going on, instead of boring me with the camera.  With dogs, you never can tell if they are going to cooperate.  Thankfully, we managed a few where puppy was looking and “smiling” at me.

Next sneak peek up on the blog has a couple of familiar faces in it.  I have photographed them for their senior photos this year, but mom really wanted a family photo too!  And what better time to have one?!  I knew they would all be beautiful and coordinating.  Wasn’t worried about that at all.  But what I DIDN’T expect was the extreme cuteness of the youngest, tiniest, part of the family.  Little baby Blue!  Yes, their little puppy came dressed up for the photo shoot too, in a coordinating tie.  Could you just die from cuteness overload?!  He did very well for his first photo shoot.  Looking all adorable and smiling at me.  You never know how the pups are going to act for photos, but I think I have been pretty lucky this year with very well behaved sweethearts.

This is a special couple to me, so I was excited to have this shoot.  The young man is my son ;).  He knows the importance of photos, and had been asking me for this shoot for a while now.  How could I say no?!  I don’t get many couple shoots, but they are so sweet to shoot.  Ahhh, young love!
