8-19-11 Maternity Portrait Photographer BMat00.jpg

Brittany is little sister to my close friend, Aubrey, and part of the Jarvis Family, all of whom I have become so close with over the past many years.  I have been fortunate to document all the Jarvis sister's weddings to date and now I am documenting their families, as I can when I get back to Florida, as they grow.  Though this shoot was a while back, I wanted to post some photos from Brittany's maternity shoot - of course her husband, Stephen, was in tow :-).  They now have a beautiful baby girl named Avenue!  Love you Bee and Stephen!!

We have hit the busy season and I am falling very far behind on my blogging, so for those couples waiting, I promise I will get your shoots up as soon as possible :-).

 

While we were in Florida, Brittany and Stephen had one last shoot - a spectacular Trash-the Dress shoot.  Again, we can't stress enough how much fun these shoots can be ... they are becoming increasingly popular and are highly recommended!!!

 

Bee and Stephen started the shoot in Downtown Orlando in the Church Street Station district ... I personally love the ice cream shots :-).  From there we headed out to Blue Springs State Park where they got down and dirty - and just a little water-logged.

 

Thank you both so much!!  It was such a blast and we just love you guys!  Hope you love them as much as we do :-)!!

I first met Brittany when she was eight years old.  I went to meet my friend Aubrey at her house for a photo shoot and there she was ... the only blonde in the family.  I remember thinking how pretty she was going to be when she grew up.  I couldn't have been closer to the mark in that prediction.  Today she is a beautiful young woman and I never dreamed at the time that I would one day be photographing her wedding.  Funny how life works sometimes :-).

 

Brittany and Stephen are a wonderful couple and I was so glad to be a part of their very special day.  I have felt blessed to be able to cover each sister's wedding (Ashley and Aubrey before this) and Bee's was no exception.  Brittany comes from a large family - 4 sisters and 3 brothers total - and I just love all of them, including their wonderful parents.  Stephen's family was just as wonderful to get to know, very warm and gracious.

 

Side note: As you view the photos you will think your eyes are playing tricks on you, and in a way they are.  For the record, that is not former President George W. Bush, but he sure is a darn good look-alike!!  In fact Stephen's father, John Morgan, is a bit of a celebrity himself having taken third place in ABC TV's celebrity reality show, "The Next Best Thing."  It really was mind-boggling how much he looked like him.

 

Brittany and Stephen, it was a beautiful wedding and you two make the cuttest couple.  Thank you for your hospitality and for entrusting us as your wedding photographers.  Stephen is a videographer and Brittany has always grown up around the camera so photos were extremely important to both of them.  It meant a lot that they trusted us to document their special day.  Hope you love them and we wish you the very best in life!!  Hope you have a chance to stop by and visit while you are out this way :-)!

Brittany Morgan:

I am speechless, the pictures are absolutely breath taking! i just love them all. You captured our wedding day so spectacularly! I couldn't be happier. You're work amazes me every time. I thank God for you and your friendship to the family. Stephen and I are so lucky to have a little bit of Sierra Blanco in our lives. Thank you!

It has become a bit of a tradition among the Jarvis sisters to have their rehearsal and reception as one event the day before the wedding and far be it for Brittany to break with tradition :-).  After the rehearsal we all headed over to the Longwood Community Center, which is a beautiful old Victorian, to enjoy great food and celebrate!!

 

The reception was decorated and catered in a southwest theme.  It was a wonderful evening and Brittany and Stephen were just glowing with happiness!

The day after Alicia and Michael's wedding, I photographed the beautiful Aubrey for her Trash the Dress Session.  Aubrey is one of my dearest friends ... not to mention my favorite model :-).  As a matter of fact, that is how we met a decade ago.  She was in the hallway of my college (she went through the photography program as well) and I stopped and asked her if I could photograph her.  She said yes and the rest is history.  I have had the pleasure to photograph Aubrey many, many times over the years and last year I had the ultimate privilege of documenting her wedding.  Well, we have talked about a Trash the Dress Session ever since and decided this was a great opportunity to do it.

Aubrey does not particularly consider herself an outdoorsy type of gal like myself, but as usual she followed me deep into the recesses of the Florida wilderness to create these amazing images.  We traveled to Wekiwa Springs State Park in Orlando.  This is one of hundreds of fresh water springs that dot Florida ... the waters are crystal clear with beautiful shades of blue and emerald.  As idealistic as that may sound, it is still the Florida wilderness.  Aubrey braved alligators, no-see-ums (nasty little bugs that leave nasty little bites), very large wolf spiders that love to hide in the tulle of a wedding dress, and those sounds that emanate around you, unseen, praying on the imagination, and still she continued on for the sake of her photos ... amazing!!  I am so proud of you Aubs :-).

No doubt though, the photos are well worth it!  She even did the "wet hair flip" for me ... over and over and over again - just like she did in one of our very first shoots together.  Aubrey I adore these images ... thank you soooooo much for trusting me to not let you be attacked by spiders :-).  You hold a very special place in my heart and I will never tire of using you as one of my models.  Hope you and Phillip love them!!  Love you!!

Side note:  For anyone interested in these types of shoots, we highly suggest them.  They are great fun and you don't necessarily have to "Trash" your dress.  After everything Aubrey did (including riding in a canoe to get to some of the locations), she only ended up with a small grass stain at the bottom of her dress ... something easily fixed by a good dry clean.  Plus you get to feel like a model for a day ... what fun!!
