When we were first contacted by Aubrey to photograph her glam-fabulous wedding, I had no idea what I was getting into, maybe a little of an idea, but not really. I did not realize that I would need a dictionary in really cool acronyms or shortened variations of normal words : ‘Deats,’ ‘Totes,’ ’FAB,’ and her personal favorite ‘Dahlin!’ I did not realize that I was going to become so close with such a wonderful, sucessful, geniunely amazing person and I also didn’t realize she was going to make me pee my pants with laughter so much on her wedding day (don’t go too crazy, I didn’t really go #1 in my under roo’s, but there were several close calls!) Working with Aubrey and Bobby was no different than photographing super close friends…. They were so much fun, so confident in us and so appreciative… Their love for one another, their bridal party and guests was contagious and the entire day was an absolute gift to be a part of.
Their gorgeous day started off at the Sheraton Riverside Hotel in Downtown Tampa and proceeded with their first look at the Bank of America building, where the reception would be held later that evening. Aubrey suggested using the elevator for the first look and it couldn’t have been a sweeter moment to capture. The ceremony was held at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Hyde Park and we were given a very specific instructions about taking pictures: We had to be silent, invisible photo ninja’s for the entire time, and we did as we were told with a little rule bending here and there.We then proceeded to The Tampa Club for one of the funnest receptions I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. What a great day full of great pictures! Aub and Bob : You Rock My World!
