Cathedral Basilica Wedding

March 31, 2021


If there ever was a dreamy St. Augustine Cathedral Basilica wedding, Rex and Maria’s was IT.

I first met Rex and Maria when we got together to shoot their Magnolia St. engagement session and immediately I LOVED them! They were just a happy-go-lucky kind of couple which made shooting their session THAT much easier! After only a few minutes with them, I knew their St. Augustine Cathedral Basilica wedding would be spectacular day!

Leading up to their wedding day, I got to know Rex and Maria a little better and I heard more and more about what their vision for their wedding day would look like. Timeless, classic, and romantic. Sounds good to me!They chose the Cathedral Basilica in St. Augustine as the ceremony location and the Fountain of Youth for their reception location.

Beginning at The Collector, a lovely inn in downtown St. Augustine, I met both Rex and Maria chose to get ready there with their bridal party by their side. It was just a short walk to the Cathedral Basilica, which is a much easier task than trying to find parking between locations. If you know, you know! 🤣

It wasn’t too long after gathering the girls for some getting ready photos that we were making our way to the church for the ceremony! Even I still get butterflies eat this point in the day! So much happening so fast, so much excitement- it’s the best part of the day!

The ceremony was a whirlwind, but I’ll never forget the look on Rex’s face when Maria made her way down the aisle. It was an absolutely unforgettable first look.

After their vows were said, the couple hopped on a trolley and made their way to the reception for a night nobody will soon forget!
The energy of their reception was unlike I’ve ever felt. So much love sd positivity filled the room- it was such a pleasure to document every second of it!

When my husband, Jeff, and I were planning our wedding, we hired a photographer whose work was beautiful. Fast forward a few months, she ghosted us. Took our money and vanished. Two months before our wedding, I'm panicking, trying to find another photographer who was available on our very popular date- 10/10/10, and whose work didn't completely suck. I was laughed at over the phone by one photographer, whose name I will withhold but will FOREVER remember. He obviously thought my desperation was amusing, but I couldn't see the humor through my enormous tears. 

After having already spent our entire photography budget, I was forced to hire the only person who was left available, and for fairly cheap. He definitely over-promised + under-delivered. It was a sad experience, one I never want you to have to go through, which is why I am so passionate about ensuring my couples have the MOST amazing wedding photography experience humanly possible, with me.

If you are looking for a photographer who values YOU and your entire wedding photography experience, I'm your girl.
I will be by your side, making sure you feel totally comfy + content while you're in front of my lens. I promise your wedding day photos will be timeless, beautiful, and everything you've dreamed of.

I honestly can't wait to meet you, so get in touch and let's do this! 

If you have found your way to me, it's probably because you've been searching for the right photographer, but none of the others have felt like 'the one'. I get it. I've been there, done that.
