4th Avenue Photography (www.4thavephoto.com), Robyn and Octavio… We go way back, we have worked together on projects for Lululemon and their own fitness company Octfit (www.octfit.com) so it made sense that they came to us as their first choice for their wedding photography.
The setting was the beautiful Boca Beach Club in Boca Raton. We loved the simplicity of the affair, a 10am service on the beach followed by the reception at the club with brunch. It was all over by 3pm leaving the guests to enjoy all of what the Boca Beach Club has to offer. 🙂
Taking photos on the beach in the noon day sun in Florida is tricky, the light is blinding. Polarizing filters and camera mounted flashes are essential for the job, expose for the sky and hit them with light is the trick. We used Canon 5D MKIII for the job with Canon 24-70mm lenses. Perfect? See for yourself 🙂
“We have a challenge for the right photographer” said the voice on the other end of the phone… A Vietnamese ceremony on the morning and a traditional western wedding in the afternoon. Sean and Linda celebrated twice in style, the wedding in the morning was full of Vietnam style and tradition, the giving of traditional gifts including a pig, honoring their ancestors and formal introductions and welcomes to the family.
The afternoon was a blast, the bride is a self confessed Star Wars nut and it showed. After a beautiful Catholic ceremony the bride and groom entered the dining room at The Abacoa Golf Club, Jupiter, FL to an honor guard of lightsabers complete with a Star Wars inspired cake and decorations. A day full of love, fun and a little geeky fantasy.
A truly international affair at the Sundy House, Delray Beach.
Roxy and Justin met as students at college in Miami and sealed their future together on this wonderful day. Family and friends flew in from all over the globe to attend including a whole family from China. The ceremony was as original as they come with a mixture of eastern, western and jewish traditions (including Chinese dragons)
www.4thavephoto.com were hired to provide Portraits before the wedding, rehearsal dinner coverage as well as coverage of the whole day in total we took over 2000 photographs. As always we left Roxy and Justin and their families a priceless collection of memories for the future.
Beth and Ted are great friends of our, it’s always a great compliment to be asked to photograph a friends wedding! The day was perfect at the Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, Boca Raton. A little shade in the Florida sunshine and a gentle breeze to cool the family and guests.
A couple of week before they posed for a portrait session, we wanted to come up with something a little humorous. Why not pull off something that everybody will recognize, a movie poster! ‘Star Wars’? Nope, ‘Gone with the Wind’? Too cheesy… How about pretty woman?! This is what we came up with, a pretty good portrait for the wedding, and memory for the future.
The wedding was a great affair, great food and dancing. Ted strutting his stuff on the dane floor with Beth Looking like an excited school girl having the time of her life at the best path of her life, we loved it.
It was a beautiful day, perfect temperature, perfect weather and the perfect wedding for Jim and Lily. We we proud to be asked to photograph the couple for the second time, you may have seen the earlier post of the informal wedding on the beach. This time was for family, friends wine and dancing. We hope you enjoy the photos from Fort Lauderdale yacht club.
