St. Petersburg Wedding Photographers at Nova

It’s the classic story of boy (Duane) meets girl (Andi- that’s ME!) at the University of Florida, they become great friends, party together, and then go their separate ways (pre-Facebook of course). Then the girl (Andi) works at Shriners Hospital after college, meets a great friend (Tara), who happens to be a Nole, and years later runs into the boy at the Gator national championship game in Miami, and decides to play match maker (at the protest of her husband (that’s Pete)…..and the rest…as they say…is history! Simple enough right? This St. Petersburg wedding at Nova was incredibly special to me because I got to witness two dear friends share their love with each other and make their union official! I knew when I set them up, and then again after their first date that Tara and Duane were the perfect match for each other. His dry sarcasm, her witty come-backs. Both with laid back, easy going personalities and a passion for their family and friends (and college football)- it was evident early on that these two were meant to be! I was honored to be able to capture their love story!
