I think it’s safe to say that Onix and I go way back. I’ve known Onix longer than I’ve known Marta. We’ve been through thick and thin, so it was only natural that he and his fiance reach out to Marta and I to photograph their wedding. We’re all nerds in our own outright, but Onix has always been a fan of films. It seemed natural that they would have an Up Inspired Wedding, especially with it being one of his favorite movies of all time.
An Engagement Session that Showed a Different Side
In the grand scheme of things, there are certain aspects of an engagement session that we prepare for. We try to read a couple and try to adjust our approach during our Together Session to cater to our couple. It’s a unique way of trying to figure out what works best for our couple so that we can have the most seamless session ever.
When it came to Roarsy and Onix’s engagement session, it was a good opportunity to talk about what they wanted to do for their Up Inspired Wedding at the Garden Villa. We took the time to talk about their day and what they had planned. Their portraits came out epic and we loved every second of it. We basically closed down Cypress Grove Estate.
Roarsy and Onix’s Up Inspired Wedding
On the day of the wedding, we lucked out with phenomenal weather. It was a little humid starting out, but what day isn’t in Florida? I started photographing the guys getting ready at Onix’s home and then we headed to the Garden Villa to start photographing Roarsy and her bridesmaids.
The ceremony was unbelievably gorgeous. The decor was just enough, but the emotions were undeniably there. Tears of joy were shed from so many people. These two have one thing in common, they were surrounded by people that loved them and supported them taking this next step in their relationship. At the end of the day, you couldn’t ask for more when it comes to your wedding day.
