Sydney and Robert are probably some of the most relaxed and easy-going couples I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Their ceremony took place at the Avon Pavillion that overlooked the beach and their reception was at The Columns in Avon-By-The-Sea. I used to dislike beach weddings but this year has turned me […]

First of all, The Estate at Florentine Gardens is an absolutely beautiful venue both inside and out! The gardens at The Estate at Florentine Gardens are just a photographer’s dream featuring twinkly lights, a lot of florals, a pergola, and two beautiful gazebos. Not to mention the beautiful venue itself creates an amazing backdrop for portraits as well! The Estate […]
