Kelly + Jason married at The Abbey and The Mezz Orlando

I've definitely developed a deeper love for what I do as a wedding photographer. I realize that my photographs are my gift to other's and one of my greatest purposes. It's truly a joy to participate in the most special day of someones life and I think it's so cool that I get to experience & capture this moment with them. I know... Im such a sap haha! Just a little background on todays couple: I met Kelly in college when we both attended the same study abroad program in Switzerland. She witnessed some of the beginning stages of my love for photography . It was in those days that we walked around the streets of florence, stood under the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and climbed a snowy Mountian in Switzerland that I developed my real passion. I bought my first Long Champs purse that I still wear to this day in Paris with Kelly! I'll never forget. And although we are not the best of friends, I feel connected to her because we experienced these special moments together;  unforgettable life moments that I got to share with her. Kelly and Jason are a musical and colorful couple and everything about their day held true to their personalities. They really embraced the idea of a non traditional wedding and did so tastefully. They got ready that day at the Grand Bohemian hotel which is filled with beautiful art, music and a grand piano in the lobby area. It was the perfect setting for them and tied in great with their entire theme. They had their first look under a personalized Marquee right outside of their ceremony venue which was such a photo opt, my gosh! He's a drummer and she's a singer so they chose to exchange their vows on stage at The Abbey in Downtown Orlando. They opted for a Heavy Hors d'Oeuvres reception with food stations which I thought created a really fun and interactive vibe. I really enjoyed photographing this wedding because it inspired all of my senses! It had so many fun elements of art, colors, uplight, glitz & glam. I love to see how people really make their wedding day a reflection of them, it's the best! Congratulations again to the new Mr. & Mrs. Burris :)
