As you can tell, we are currently updating our photography blog. Because we’re crazy (and because Godaddy cancelled the blogcast service we were using, so we really had no choice). We’re hoping to be able to pull back in our 100+ posts from the past. Where is that magic button when we need one!?

Anyway, this blogsite is going to be way cooler, of course, and we’re really excited about it or will be once we have some awesome photo shoots uploaded. Good thoughts always welcomed!

We can hardly believe Cesar and Kim’s one year anniversary is already right around the corner.  We love looking back and reflecting on all the wonderful moments and details of their wedding day.

Marsh Landing Wedding Photography

The purple and lilac color scheme mixed in with soft creams and deep aubergine is still one of our favorites. Everything took place at the charming Marsh Landing Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Kim and Cesar had a picture perfect wedding, from the getting ready shots, to the flowers, decorations, and table settings, to their handsome groom/groomsmen and beautiful bride/bridesmaids, ceremony and reception…

Spring is here and we’re enjoying the perfect Florida weather right now. Many spring break vacationers flock to the First Coast to bask on our beautiful beaches and tour historic St. Augustine. It’s a hot spot for families to get some peaceful rest and relaxation. We love meeting and photographing awesome families from around the country and even the world that come visit.

Vilano Beach Family Photography

Though Florida is great year round! The Geier Family from Arizona visited last summer. They took advantage of the perfect opportunity to schedule a professional family portrait session.

Vilano Beach Family Photography

Vilano Beach was a lovely backdrop for creating these family memories. I especially like how Jerry captured the love and togetherness with casual poses and candid moments. Our family photo sessions are always a lot of fun!

We also work very hard to photograph a variety of pictures, from individual shots to family groupings in a diversity of different poses, as well as the carefree lifestyle photos of truly unposed moments.

Daniel and Holly had the perfect spring wedding at the Country Club of Orange Park. We had an absolute fabulous time photographing their ceremony and reception. They are such a wonderful couple and super fun! Their love for each other just radiates in all their photographs.

Karen had the pleasure to create their custom wedding invitations. We
loved incorporating their spring color scheme of coral, green and
yellow.  The colors and design worked so wonderfully, we also used
similar elements when designing their wedding album.

Wedding Invitation Designs

Their wedding day details, flowers and decorations all tied in together so beautifully.

These are some of the Carter’s wedding album page layouts we designed in-house at Favorite Photography. Every wedding is so unique and custom, and we feel the albums should reflect that. We hope you enjoy looking through their wedding day memories as much as we do.

The Hortmans are one of my ‘favorite’ (pun intended) families. I still vividly recall Patty and Matt’s wedding in May of 2008 off the St Johns River. They’re an amazing couple and have three awesome kids. 

Florida Park and Beach Family Photography

I had a pleasure of photographing their family pictures in 2010 soon after the arrival of their first boy and again last year which included a new adorable little addition.  It also happened to be Matt and Patty’s 5th wedding anniversary!  What a great way to celebrate their lives and their family.

This was truly a blessed day and the Florida weather was perfect. Washington Oaks Gardens is a breathtaking location (even though this lovely old fallen oak tree is no longer here).

We love the coquina rocks on this area of beach in Palm Coast. They make some of the best family beach sessions.

Gregory and Megan Renacs are looking forward to their one year anniversary on April 13th.  They had the most charming and romantic country wedding. We recently enjoyed reminiscing through all their beautiful pictures to share some of our favorite photos from their lovely outdoor ceremony and reception with you now.

Florida Country Wedding Photography

Leather cowboy (or we should say ‘cowgirl’) boots, fresh wildflower bouquets, mason jars with bunches of baby’s breath, and lace ribbon were just a few of the wonderful little accents Megan used to infuse some country into her special wedding day.

Need a little more of Greg and Megan?  Check out their engagement session we photographed at Hanna Park in Jacksonville.  And don’t miss out on the Day After photo shoot Jerry photographed around the Lightner Museum and historic downtown in Saint Augustine.

Megan was rockin’ her dress, and Greg was looking pretty dandy too, the day after their beautiful country wedding!  Jerry had a blast photographing some fun, natural and romantic pictures around stunning downtown Saint Augustine.

Florida Bridal Photography

The best part of a “Day After” photo session is that the bride and groom are so relaxed and happy.  It’s a no stress, just hanging out and being in love moment that the newly weds will remember for many years to come!

We want to share with you Taylor and Kim’s love story and some of their beautiful pictures we had the pleasure to photograph on their amazing wedding day:

“The Best Day of Our Lives!”

Saint Augustine Wedding Photography

How we got engaged… Taylor planned a romantic scene in our backyard one evening before “date night”. He surprised me with roses and our favorite song. The most important part was the speech. The words he spoke brought tears to my eyes. He got down on one knee and asked to marry me. I said, “Yes!” We are so happy to be spending our lives together.

Saint Augustine Wedding Photography

Our wedding… My wedding day was everything I dreamed about. We had a beautiful ceremony and joyous reception at the St. Johns Golf & Country Club. We used lovely details in bright fuchsia, vibrant yellows and soft greens. Thanks to my wonderful photographers Jerry and Karen Favorite, I am able to have those memories for a lifetime.

Favorite Photography
did such a great job capturing every single moment of our special day. The pictures are absolutely breathtaking.  Every time I look at the photos, it’s as if I’m reliving my wedding day all over again. They do incredible work, and I was so happy that I chose Favorite Photography for my wedding. Thank you! -Kim and Taylor

I can’t stop smiling every time I look through the Taylor family photo session. They are such an adorable, happy family and their smiles are contagious! Mitch and Melissa are blessed with an amazing family and two great kids.

Every portrait session with Favorite Photography is original and different. There are so many wonderful moments we recall from every photo shoot.  This one has a few that stand out.  I’ll never forget when the sweetest, cutest little three year old pushed her charming brother into the water fountain.  Both kids were so shocked, but I think we can safely laugh about it now.  I tell this story because, honestly, these two kids were truly well behaved and had a great time.  When you have children (Jerry and I have three), you learn to expect the unexpected and roll with it.  The Taylors dried themselves off and came back for round two with great aplomb.  I love it!

We enjoy photographing family portraits on location at our beautiful Florida beaches, but if you’re
looking for something a little different, there’s nothing better than
historic downtown Saint Augustine.  There is an unlimited number of
unique and beautiful backgrounds all within walking distance.

It was an honor to photograph the Taylor family, capturing the traditional posed photos along with the fun, candid moments. Our little photo journey started at The Lightner Museum and ended near the Bridge of Lions. Such a lovely day full of wonderful memories. Thank you!

Justin and Melissa had a fabulous engagement session in St Augustine, Florida.  Jerry had a great time photographing them around historic downtown and Vilano Beach.

We designed a really cool signature guest book with some of their favorite pictures.  These are some of the photo layouts used in the custom album which was a big hit at their wedding reception.
