Winter Garden Equestrian Session | Chiara & Nino | Orlando Equine & Portrait Photographer

Ahhh... I am still swooning over this one. Such a magical morning spent with Chiara and her Nino. Chiara just recently graduated from college and is moving on into a great job and wanted to have some keepsakes of her and her fabulous boy. We ventured out to Crown Pointe Equestrian in Winter Garden for an early morning session for the two of them. I love big horses with big personality and Nino did all he could to amuse us! He's such a happy horse and loved hamming it up with his mom! Then, after a short break for some breakfast, he got to have his own glamour shots done. Absolutely in love with everything we created in these sessions!

Palmetto Equestrian Senior Session | Siena | Victoria DeMore Photography | Central Florida Senior & Equine Photographer

I often say how cool it is watching kids we photograph at horse shows, learn and grow - and grow up. How time flies! I couldn't even believe Siena was a graduating senior. This smart young woman and talented equestrian is headed off to go do great things in the world. I had a blast getting to know her and her mom a little better while exploring the gorgeous Centennial Farm in Palmetto, Florida. It is a phenomenal and meticulously maintained property and I can just imagine is heaven for the horses who live there and people who work and ride there. Check out the amazing shots I got of Siena - including some with her lovely mare. Thanks so much to Siena and her family for having us and to the Stephens's for letting us use your spectacular farm as the backdrop to these photos!

Gainesville Wedding Sneak Peek | Jordan + Jared | Central Florida Wedding Photographer

God works in amazing ways. For a full week, Florida's forecast for Sunday showed 100% chance of rain through most of the day. Not just rain, but severe weather, damaging wind, possibility of tornados, lots of lightning... basically the stormiest day ever throughout the entire wedding. 

Held at the beautiful Clark Plantation, the plan was to have the ceremony outside amongst the picturesque oak trees and Spanish moss. Plans had to be changed, ceremony moved inside to where the reception would also be held. Thanks to a brilliant wedding coordinator, outstanding vendors, and two families full of love and support, the rain day plan was pulled together and we had a fantastic ceremony. Shortly after, as Dustin and I were swapping gear around for the reception, I felt a familiar warmth. Light started radiating through the rustic hall, illuminating the bride and groom at the head table. I took a step outside and the rain clouds had broken way to the loveliest sky. Yes! We would get a sunset! 

Jordan and Jared are the sweetest, humblest, most loving couple. We've been so lucky to be along to document this step in their lives. Jordan didn't have many requests for specific photos she wanted to have outside of standard wedding photos. She just wanted sunset photos at the tree-lined hill on the Clark Plantation property. As soon as I felt that sun on my face, I was so relieved that we would get the photos she was so excited for on their wedding day. I like to think the earlier-than-expected storm departure was God's wedding gift to the newly minted Petersens.

In preparation for their honeymoon, we wanted to get a quick blog up of sneak peek photos. A full blog post will follow in the coming weeks once the gallery is ready. So much thanks to the Petersen and Coyne families and best wishes to Jordan and Jared on a very long and happy life together.
