I fell in love with Susan’s work because it is pure art. Her creative eye and ability to capture the unexpected is unprecedented. We love her elegant, documentary-style photos and want her to feel free to get as artistic as she wants! We trust her fully and will be so proud and honored to hang her pictures on our walls and share them with friends, family, future children, potential employers, the checkout lady at Publix — Really just anyone we can.
As if I weren’t already enough in love with Kalen myself before she filled out my Wedding Day Worksheet, this paragraph above sealed the deal!
I first met Kalen and Zachary through email, as is often the case with destination clients. However, we also got to meet – which is not often the case for destination clients. Kalen and Zachary are both incredible performers at Universal Studios in Orlando, and I got to see them sing when I was there on vacation this past summer. Seeing them in their element like that was electric; they’re dynamic talents with huge stage presences, and their love for what they do is so palpable.
I knew their wedding day was going to be uniquely, amazingly them…and it was. From Kalen’s Broadway-themed playlist while she got ready to her sparkly makeup-kit-on-wheels-with-lights, they had me at the very beginning. Add to that custom leather jackets, a first look near an alligator pond (we didn’t see alligators, thank goodness, Florida I’ve missed you), nighttime portraits lit by the headlights of Kalen’s dad’s vintage car, a first dance by a barbershop quartet, a sparkler exit from the ceremony to the reception, and one of the best bands I have EVER HEARD, the day was a heart explosion from start to finish.
Kalen and Zachary, you two are magic. There is no other word for it. I am deeply thankful from the bottom of my heart that you brought me to Florida to document your day. And I hope you managed to get packed by the time your flight took off for Germany on Monday…
Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding:
