“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you
courage.” – Lao Tzu
James and Lorelei met on a dating app and it turned into a lifelong love!. They bonded over many things and one of those was a love of food. In their own words they call themselves “Champion Eaters”. Lorelei loves that James is strong, intelligent, well spoken, kind, and hilarious. James adores her and says she is articulate, graceful, wise, hilarious, and The One. If this is not a match made in then I don’t know what is.
I love being based in Miami. I never tire of the amazing locations available for shoots as a photographer. At Flamingo Gardens there are acres of botanical gardens creating the picture perfect wedding setting and basically a photographers ideal location. And this is the place that Lorelei and James have chosen for their special day. When I arrive to the house, Lorelei is being well looked after by her girl squad. Lots of giggles, some bubbly and everyone can’t stop smiling. (Another reason I love my job - capturing the moments).
The final touches are added, shoes and jewels and Lorelei is off to meet her husband to be for their first look. I adore first looks, the anticipation, excitement, nerves, it’s so amazing to watch and to capture. As she walks up behind him, James cannot wait to turn around and gaze on his bride to be, but he has to wait. Once he turns they both stare into each others eyes! That is the definition of the look of love! ( Eeeeeek, it makes me excited all over again just looking through the photos.)
Lorelei and James said their vows and dedicate their lives to each other in front of family and friends. An emotion filled ceremony followed by a super-fun filled reception. A truly beautiful day from start to finish.
Congratulations James and Lorelei. May your married life be filled with all the joy and happiness. I am honored to have been part of your special day.
