Darbel & Annette [A Celebration]

This was a celebration full of happiness, laughter, fun and so much love.   My sister Annette married Darbe on Saturday December 22, 2012 in front of many family members and so many friends. 

It has been a wonderful year for me since I was able to photograph two of my family members.  One in September and this one.  How lucky am I?   I am honored to have been able to keep the memories alive with photos from this wonderfully happy event.  

Take a moment to glance through these images and feel the love.  Once you have finished scrolling through these photos, make sure you watch the video.  The link is at the bottom of the page.

Amy & Michael {Miami Beach Wedding}

When Amy called to ask me if I would photograph their wedding I was not only thrilled to do it but honored.  You see, Michael is my nephew and Amy is now my niece.

This was one of the most emotional and heartfelt ceremonies I have witnessed and I found myself fighting back the tears throughout the ceremony from behind the camera.  These two are so in love and their love has grown through the eight plus years they have been together.    When Michael finally asked Amy to marry him last Christmas, everyone in the family was ecstatic.  Now there was a wedding in the midst and we couldn't wait to see these two finally tie the knot. 

It was a beautiful, warm Saturday morning.  The sky was blue and the water glistened from the warm Florida sun.  The bride looked absolutely stunning as she walked down to meet her husband to be.  Surrounded my their family and a few close friends, Michael and Amy married on South Pointe Park on Miami Beach on September 29, 2012.  This wedding was just that much more special since it was Michael's cousin (and my daughter) who officiated the ceremony. 

Congratulations Michael and Amy.  I love you both very much and wish you all the best in this beautiful journey you are starting as Husband and Wife.
