These are just a few of our favorite photos! During the photo shoot we walked around downtown Saint Augustine and around the Lightner Museum. She had two different outfits that express her life as a ballerina and a student graduating from high school.

Jerry and Karen Favorite always enjoy shooting senior sessions, but this one was particularly wonderful. Chloe has a natural, relaxed personality mixed in with dedication and great pose. Love those pointe ballet shoes and adorable white tutu!

After photographing the bridal party around the Bridge of Lions, the happy couple made their way back to Casa Monica where guests awaited in the Flagler Ballroom. It was a perfect setting for their wedding reception. Magnificent decorations, breathtaking floral arrangements, lantern guest favors which also held the seating arrangements, opulent sweetheart table… everything was picture perfect.

Indian Cake Cutting with Sword - St Augustine Wedding Photographer

No great cake cutting ceremony is complete without a knife, or in this case, Simran’s sword. While there were many Indian wedding traditions, we liked the “Lord of the Rings”. A fun wedding game ritual they played during the reception. Couples got to see who has the upper hand in the relationship by fishing out a ring from a dish of milk and rose petals.

What better way to end a dream wedding, than a sparkler exit down a cobble stone path. Guests along with the bride and groom departed on horse drawn carriages for an evening ride through historic downtown Saint Augustine, Florida. We were honored to have been chosen to photograph their special wedding and we loved that they couldn’t pick just one holiday greeting card. So they sent out a variety of all three festive photo cards wishing family and friends a wonderful year ahead!

We just love to photograph amazing families all along our East Coast. From Amelia Island, Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, Saint Augustine Beach to on down to Palm Coast, and everything in between. Vilano Beach and Crescent Beach are two of our favorite beaches for family photos. If you’re looking for a little variety in addition to just beautiful sandy beaches, consider these two options. Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in north Jacksonville by Mayport Naval Station offers wooded nature trails, a lake setting, a great beach walkover and sand dunes. Washington Oaks Gardens State Park south of River to Sea Preserve by Marineland has a lovely garden side and a beautiful beach side with coquina rocks. These family pictures were taken in the popular vacation destination of Amelia Island, Florida.

Everything is Better in the South | We’ve been updating some of the photos and videos on our website and realized we never did a blog post of Flannery and Rob’s Southern charm wedding photography.

Jerry and Karen Favorite LOVED traveling to beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina to capture their special day. There is something about a military wedding that you will always remember. From the camaraderie and solidarity, there’s such a powerful sense of togetherness, friendship and love. Especially down here in the South.

This was a simple yet elegant spring wedding. Their color scheme of soft white and royal blue with gold accents was perfect for a military wedding. Flannery’s bouquet of flowers included bright yellow daffodils, a favorite of her’s. The bride and bridesmaids had lovely hairpieces with a pretty peacock feather. The gorgeous but “no-frills” lace strapless gown was topped off with a vintage fascinator (AKA veil)… and check out these cute wedge TOMS (for the bride that wants to be comfortable in her wedding day shoes)!

We were at the Parish Church of St Helena outside shooting some bridal party pictures when we got a personal flyover. It was an awesome surprise. The rain even stopped after the ceremony so they were able to do the Navy Arch of Sabers as they exited. Love the kiss under the swords.

Rob (who was from Jacksonville) and Flannery (who was stationed in South Carolina) came on down to Saint Augustine for their engagement session. Even though the weather was a little chilly and overcast, they got some amazing engagement photos. Jerry even did this love story video with pictures and recording of how they first met. If you have three minutes, check it out! This was one of the first engagement videos we did, but it’s so adorable and shows how they are as a couple… “real” and simply, wonderfully in love.

We love the Southern charm, country elegance and modern convenience of Bowing Oaks Plantation. Brian and Dana had their ceremony in the rustic outdoor pavilion… a lovely spot for their wedding vows.

Dana’s wedding gown was gorgeous and looked amazing handing from Bowing Oaks’ large mirror just outside their Dogwood dressing room. And Dana looks absolutely radiant on her wedding day. We loved the soft pastel colors accented with black mixed with a vintage style that was both comfortable and elegant.

Winter is a lovely time in Florida for newly engaged couples to celebrate together. The magical holiday season is full of love and laughter. A Saint Augustine Nights of Lights engagement session is an amazing place to capture these special moments. Samantha + David = the perfect couple! This is just the start of their “Happily ever after…”. We love this picture story brought to life in a beautiful photo album.

the knot best of weddings reviews“I can’t thank Jerry enough for our beautiful engagement photos.To say that we were thrilled with them would be an understatement. From the moment we set up the appointment for our session we knew it was going to be an awesome experience. Karen and Jerry worked with us to not only find a date that would meet our schedule but they also adjusted the time so that we could get some of our photos taken with the Christmas Lights in St. Augustine. Jerry was the photographer for our session and he did a great job of helping us feel comfortable during our photos which allowed our personalities to shine in each photo taken. Not to mention we received all of our photos fully edited within a WEEK! Also, Karen and Jerry worked tirelessly so that we were able to receive our photo albums in time to gift them to our parents for Christmas. Thank you both for making our first step to Happily Ever After a joyful and stress free experience! We can’t wait to work with you in the future!” – Samantha & David

The Rodey family from Maryland traveled to Florida for their summer vacation and was looking for a St Augustine family beach photographer. We are so happy they found Favorite Photography and chose us to capture their memories.

With three children, plus spouses and a total of 5 grandkids all traveling from around the U.S., scheduling a family photo session is a great way to remember this special time. Plus it’s lots of fun taking pictures on the beach!

St Augustine Couple Photo

Blues, greens, pinks and coral colors looked wonderful in the beach photos. Each family coordinated their outfits without being to matchy-matchy. Mixing solids with pretty patterns is a nice way to create balance when picking out the wardrobe for your family portrait. Natural white beach sand, soft greens and tans of the sea oats and blues of the ocean waves and sky are a perfect backdrop.

We love photographing outside, especially during the golden hour. Because as the sun is setting, we get most beautiful natural light on the beach. Plus it tends to be a tad bit cooler in the early evening, with a nice breeze… and we’ll take all the help we can to beat a little summer heat and intense sunshine.

Southern Country Wishing Well Barn Wedding Photographer

Tiffany + Nick Say “I Do!” | Perfect Spring Wedding Celebration
It was a pleasure being a Wishing Well Barn wedding photographer in Plant City, Florida for Tiffany and Nick’s special day. This lovely location is a rustic yet romantic event venue for an outdoor country wedding ceremony, blueberry fields, farm and open barn for dancing and dining during the reception.

Southern Country Wedding Photographer

Southern charm was bountiful with a bright, shabby-chic decor and authentic barn in Hillsborough County. Country flower arrangements with mason jars filled with cut lemons, yellow flowers, greenery and soft baby’s breath. Loved the open fields, tall sunflowers, rustic details, elegant but country-casual table settings with burlap runners and details of lace, warm ivory, weathered woods, festive lights and twinkling chandeliers.

Tiffany and Nick are an adventurous, outdoorsy couple and the Wishing Well Barn was their dream wedding location. They had their first look by the farm yard fence with a row of majestic sunflowers. The bright sunlight streaming through tree leaves created a beautiful, natural setting. It was a picture perfect spring day to get married!

Tiffany’s 5-star photography review on WeddingWire was simply put and down-to-earth (just like this great couple), “Easy & pleasant to work with. Took a ton of engagement photos and even more wedding photos! All pictures were great, made it hard to choose favorites! Great ‘problem’ to have.” And on our Favorite Photography Facebook page posted, “Karen traveled 3 hours to shoot my wedding. My pics are posted and there a SOOO many good ones, my family, friends, husband & I, can’t decide which is our favorite! I seriously love them all! I’ve been reliving the day and the pictures bring a smile to my face each time I scroll through! Great job Karen!”

Thinking of having a destination wedding in Florida? Here is some wonderful insight and personal testimony from the bride: “Planning a destination wedding can be tough – but being in the hospitality business, my current husband and I were up to the challenge. After reading and comparing several vendor reviews on-line, we came across Favorite Photography who had consistently high ratings and reasonably priced packages. After trading a few e-mails with them, we were able to create a custom package which fit not only our needs but our budget as well. Their quick responsiveness and flexibility was going to be important in the planning of our big day and we wanted them to capture all of the special moments of our wedding day.

A few months following signing our contract we were able to travel to FL for an engagement photo session. We met Karen in downtown St. Augustine and spent the next 2-3 hours walking the quaint streets and historical locations of the area. Our pictures were wonderful and we still cherish that afternoon. Based on that experience we knew we were in good hands and our wedding day photography was going to be everything we wanted and probably more.

Beautiful Bride Picture
As many brides will tell you, most of the day is a blur and the only way you will be able to remember all of the things that happened are through your pictures. Well, they are right and thank goodness for Favorite Photography! Karen and Jerry certainly did not disappoint on our big day. They both arrived early and begin taking pictures of the many details we had included in our special day. About 3.5 weeks after the wedding, I received an e-mail stating that 2,233 photos were waiting in an on-line gallery for my review. After (2) nights of reviewing the photos I became (and still am) obsessed with the photos! They are without a doubt the most wonderful images I have ever laid my eyes on. This dynamic duo truly captured every moment including all of the things that we didn’t know happened and we never knew they were there.

Jerry had the pleasure and honor to photograph Shequila and Marcus’ lovely downtown St Augustine family photos. The kids are super cute and so much fun… what a blessing!

Downtown St Augustine Family Photos

Historic St Augustine is a photographer’s dream – full of character, textures and colors for the most beautiful backdrops. We enjoy shooting around the big Castillo de San Marcos fort, along the intracoastal waterway on down towards the boat docks and Bridge of Lions, and over to the landmark carousel.
