The Ring Shot Hall of Fame!

There are few, special, unique things that you get on your wedding day that stay with you forever. Wedding photography, of course, is one of those things. An, even more, perpetual reminder of your love for one another that is almost always on display are your wedding rings. As wedding photographers, this is one of our favorite things to photograph! Every couple is a unique match that is special and like each couple, we have never seen two rings quite like one another! What makes our ring photos even more interesting is the fact that we use environmental elements to frame and capture the best, most meaningful ring shot for you. Did your wedding have a fruit theme? Cool, we'll photograph your rings on that fruit! Was your wedding at a honey bee farm? Awesome, we'll incorporate something from the farm with the rings! These few examples and much more are shown below in our 2017 Ring Shot Hall of Fame. Share with that friend you think is soon to be engaged or may be already engaged and thinking about decor ideas!



The Wedding Cake Hall of Fame!

For those of you joining us for the first time, we are a small family of wedding photographers based in St. Augustine, Florida. When you photograph seventy+ weddings per year you see a LOT of gorgeous cakes. And when we say a lot, we mean a ton. From traditional white cakes with bride and groom cake toppers, to incredibly unique groom's cakes that will make you spit out your drink laughing. We always think we've seen it all, until we see the next cake. Whether in North Florida, Central Florida, South Florida, or a further destination, our clients handpick, and many times custom design their cake for their big day. We simply have the opportunity to photograph their wedding day, and in this case, wedding cake. We couldn't wait any longer to show you some of our top picks, in hopes that they may inspire those of you currently planning your wedding. 

Are you trying to narrow down your style? Perhaps it's nautical, or maybe you love the bling? You may want to add a pop of color or drench the entire cake with your favorite color pallet. Are you going to have a monogram cake topper, bride and groom topper, or something special and unique? Will you add flowers to your cake, glitter, ribbon, rosemary, or edible beading?

Perhaps you'll strip off the icing and have a naked cake. Or maybe cakes aren't your thing at all and you envision having cake pops, cupcakes, or donuts.

Whatever the case, whatever the taste, here are some of our top picks for the Bow Tie Photo Wedding Cake Hall of Fame! Bon appetit! 


Elissa & Zach | Jacksonville Zoo Engagement

It is always special when we make it out to Jacksonville's world class zoo, it is even MORE special when we have the privilege to take engagement photos there with an awesome couple! Weekday mornings are extra quiet at the zoo, which creates the perfect time to take romantic portraits of a couple in love! Incorporating many parts of the zoo was not only fun, but turned into a "date" morning. As always, the session was filled with laughter, a few silly faces, and plenty of kisses! Here are a few of our favorites:

Michael & Kayla | Old Silk Mill Wedding

And like that, fall is here! We kicked the fall wedding photography season off with Michael and Kayla at the beautiful Inn at the Old Silk Mill. It was a picture perfect day for weather and the company was even better. Our day was filled with laughter, silly faces, a few happy tears, and lots of dance floor excitement! Earlier this year we spent an afternoon with these two and it's clear they're each others soul mates. We did a little wandering and found some incredible outdoor locations for portraits that look like they were right out of a studio. During the reception Michael's acapella group made a surprise performance for the wedding guests. We are excited for Michael and Kayla, here our some of our favorites! Also - LOTS of flying things in this collection!
