Destination Beach Wedding Photography in Clearwater Florida

Clearwater Florida Destination Wedding Photography

It is always an honour to be asked to photograph a wedding and even more of an honour to be asked to fly thousands of miles to capture a destination wedding. When the bride who is asking you to capture her destination wedding is actually an amazing New York wedding photographer herself then it is truly flattering.

Zach and Leanne had first contacted me last year and asked me to fly over from London to capture their engagement photography in Venice, Italy and I had such an amazing time working with them there and I felt very privileged to be asked to photograph their wedding day for them in Clearwater Florida.

It was a wedding day that was full of big surprises and Leanne had carefully planned everything to make sure that Zach would be completely blown away. Zach is in the US military based in Italy and had flown over to Florida straight from Venice. Zach thought that it was going to be an intimate elopement with just the two of them and me but little did he know that Leanne had secretly arranged for both of their families to fly from New York to share the day with them.

Zach had not seen his family for 6 months and a surprise knock on the door as he was getting ready for the ceremony was the signal for an emotional reunion. The surprises kept on coming for Zach as Leanne had arranged for his grandmother to attend and present Zach's late grandfathers wedding ring for him just before the ring exchange. Finally Leanne had arranged a beautiful cruise for the wedding reception where they took their first dance as the sun was setting over the beautiful Clearwater horizon.

Here are a few images from this beautiful destination wedding. You can see the amazing 'Trash the Dress' session from the day after this amazing wedding here: Trash the Dress Wedding Session
