ST. AUGUSTINE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // FLORIDA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // ST. AUGUSTINE PHOTOGRAPHER // JACKSONVILLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
H and V made planning a destination wedding seem easy! When H and V decided to tie the knot in St. Augustine, Florida at the Lightner Museum, they knew they were in for an unforgettable experience with family and friends.
The Lightner Museum is a stunning piece of history, offering a unique and romantic setting for a wedding day. H + V were surrounded by the beautiful architecture of the museum, which turned out to be the perfect backdrop for their wedding!
I will never forget their first look. H and V’s chose to do it on the third floor ballroom at the Lightner Museum and it was nothing short of magical! With the grand piano serving as the backdrop, they lit up the room with their smiles and warmth as they shared a moment that will be remembered for years to come.
The room was filled with natural light from the large windows, and the grand piano served as the perfect focal point. As they embraced each other, the emotion in the room was palpable. From the tears of joy to the smiles of love, it was a moment that will live in their hearts forever.
The ceremony was held in the beautifully decorated pool hall, with the reception taking place within the same space after cocktail hour off of the main courtyard. The guests were treated to a romantic atmosphere, with music filling the air the entire evening! The night was filled with laughter, love, and lots of dancing. No one was ready for the day to end!
H and V’s wedding was a dream come true. From the stunning venue to the amazing atmosphere, they got to experience the best of everything. It was a day they will never forget and one that their guests will talk about for years to come!
“WE LOVE AUDREY!
We knew we wanted high quality pictures for our wedding so this was the second vendor that we looked into, after the venue. We were interested in her services based on her beautiful pictures, but her stated values on her website and our first phone call with her really confirmed to us that she would be a great, upbeat and fun photographer to work with! (Some photographers don’t really work with same-sex couples or interracial couples, and it was important to us that we see whether ALL couples enjoyed working with that vendor – that was the case with Audrey.)
Leading up to the day, she was super communicative and organized – she also rolled with my type-A tendencies and never seemed stressed, which kept us relaxed! Our wedding coordinators even mentioned how amazing she was in communicating with them, since our venue had some places that needed permits to take pictures.
Our wedding party and families just LOVED working with her – we were kind of a loud, rowdy bunch but she kept us on time without rushing us, and really allowed us to just have fun. She also worked really well with our families, who don’t speak too much English and kept asking for lots of group shots! She really put my husband and I and our families at ease, since we are not the most photogenic of people – I can’t stress how much I appreciated that. One of my bridesmaids loved her so much, she’s considering working with her to retake her wedding pictures, since she didn’t love her original photographer!
Afterwards, Audrey got us our sneak peek pictures (around 50!!) within four days, which is so speedy and way past our expectations! We got the full gallery only a MONTH later, and all the pictures were beautiful. It was important that we work with someone who gets lots of candid pictures and captures the atmosphere of the day, even if my husband and I weren’t around, and I was thrilled to see so many pictures of the wedding guests. It was lovely to see all the organic conversation and laughter of our guests and really recaptured the magic of that day!
All in all, we loved Audrey’s talent and willingness to play around, her easy-going and fun vibe, her professionalism, and her work style. She was amazing, and we rave about her every chance we get! Do yourself a favor and work with her!”– H.H.
