Mike + Raquel | St. Petersburg Beach Wedding | Sunset Beach, Florida

She was a dance instructor, and he had set out to try new things. Attending a dance class was on his list. He showed up to her class by accident one night, thinking he was headed to a different class. Fast forward a few months, many memories made, an engagement and all thats left to do is grow old together. I was so honored to be the photographer to document their commitment to each other on Sunset Beach last month.

Absolute fascination for his bride.

Cause who has time to recap in written words, when the pictures say so much more? Well, for starters, we moved. I’ll go into a bit more detail about that in a future post. But, we got an amazing house of our dreams, in a fantastic area. In the same neighborhood as our best friends to boot! And as if that wasn’t enough, I got a job. Like the kind where I work for someone else. But it’s also a dream job. This has been…
