Jackie + Greg Wedding at West Martello

Hello again!  As you can see, since February,  I've failed miserably at keeping up with the blog again this year.

That doesn't mean I won't keep trying so go ahead and subscribe, you already know I won't fill up your inbox with too many posts! ;)

This has been my busiest year in business so far and yet I've taken on too many "private" clients that don't want me to share the images from their sessions and as such I've been "off the radar" so to speak.  Because of this, I'm now limiting the amount of commissions I will accept that demand privacy. This is another topic I need to tackle for a blog post at a later date....

For now, lets get to the long awaited sneak peak of Jackie and Greg's beautiful garden wedding. 

These two Key West locals are some of the most genuine, laid back, relaxed individuals I've met. When I moved here, almost 6 years ago,  I met Jackie and Greg through the dive shop they both worked at as Scuba Instructors. I was training for my advanced scuba diving certification with another instructor who became a close friend as well and the rest, as they say, is history.

  Yes, they've been dating a while now, and have experienced their share of challenges but that has only strengthened the bond they share and heightened the anticipation of their pending nuptials for the many, many people who are lucky to know and love them both.

So many of their friends pitched in to make their day special and I'll be sure to mention everyone at the end of this post.  

Enjoy this small sampling and be sure to check back in a couple weeks for their full gallery to be released. It is chock full of all of all of the "fun" photos I'm sure their guests will be glad I did NOT share here.
