What you actually want is to experience the magic again.

When the cake is eaten and the guests have all gone home. You want to be taken back to the moment each photograph was taken. To feel all the emotions you felt that day. Your heart pounding in your wedding dress. A tear running down a cheek. The scent of his cologne. Glasses clinking in celebration.

You're actually searching for something else.

Dear Florida Bride,
You may not know it. But you don't want pretty photographs.

Mary is incredibly kind, patient, and personable. My wedding photos were better than I could’ve asked for. She made taking photos feel so comfortable and natural, teaching us different poses. It ended up being fun. I would highly recommend Mary for an easy-going photography experience.
