Anna Maria Island Photographer | Sandbar Wedding with Abby & Brian
A wedding at The Sandbar always has this Anna Maria Island Photographer feeling over the moon! Abby and Brian wanted to make sure that their wedding day on Anna Maria Island was captured in perfect detail, and we were honored when they turned to Sandhill Photography to preserve their memories. Photography on the beach presents some of the most challenging lighting you'll find in industry, and having a photographer with the right technical skills, equipment, and artistic vision is vital. As a long term Anna Maria Island Photographer, I know just how to handle each shot so that every memory is ready to stand the test of time. (Click to learn more about why it's so important to work with a local Anna Maria Island photographer!) Abby's day started in her Anna Maria Island rental home where she spent the morning getting ready for one of the biggest moments of her life. Every detail had been thoughtfully planed to perfection over the last year, and now that the wedding day had finally arrived, it was finally time to watch her vision come together.
When we arrived at the venue, The Sandbar and the team from Chiles Hospitality Events had every detail perfectly positioned for the ceremony to begin. Soon it was time for Abby to take her father's arm and walk out to the beach. She found Brian there waiting for her there on the white sands of Anna Maria Island under their wedding arch, the picture of excitement and anticipation. As an Anna Maria Island Photographer, this moment right here is always one of my favorites and I always have butterflies fluttering around in my stomach. No matter how many wedding's I've shot, it always feels as magical as the first time! The flowers by Blooms By the Beach made for the perfect finishing touches everywhere you looked. Soon she arrived beside her groom and the magic was ready to begin as Steve Lortz of Weddings by Lortz preformed their beautiful and heartfelt ceremony. I'm so lucky to get to photograph moments like this here on Anna Maria Island, I truly have the best job ever!
The reception began with the golden light of the Anna Maria Island sunset creating lighting so perfect and soft it was nearly enough to make this photographer cry. They danced under the twinkling lights of the venue as their family watched with ooo's and ahhh's. Speeches and toasts were made by those closest to the couple, and soon it was time to dance the night away, and everyone knows the party never stops when you've got Jam All Day at the DJ booth! It was a wild and romantic night that their friends and family won't soon forget! Abby and Brian, Thank you for letting this Anna Maria Island Photographer be a part of the magic of your day!
