Congratulations to Alexa & Alex! They tied the knot at Ruth Eckerd Hall Performing Arts Venue in Clearwater, Tampa Bay area. I had the pleasure of capturing their beautiful ceremony under a grand oak tree. Before they said “I Do’s,” they decided to do a first look to get the jitters out of the way and to make time to spend with each other before the ceremony. I’m so glad they decided to do the first look so they can get all their photos with the wedding party and spend time with their closest friends. It is so important to make time for photos so you can have a stress free wedding day to spend with your loved ones.

With the first impression, the venue seemed very commercial with no areas for newlyweds and bridal party photos. However, after spending a few minutes scouting out the area, I quickly realize there are some hidden gems in this location. For example, it has a strip of land with lush grass and towering trees that is perfect for photos. This venue has a great balcony that faces the west coast. As a result, everyone enjoyed the amazing sunset Clearwater has to offer. It was a night to remember filled with celebrations. At the end of it all, we managed to get great photos for two amazing people. Thank you for letting me be a part of your big day.
