Jennifer & Marcus

Jennifer & Marcus

Well Covid-19 threw a lot of curve balls at 2020 brides, many choosing to postpone or even cancel there events.  For Jennifer and Marcus, they chose to move forward and modify their plans, rather than putting life on hold.  The church looks a bit different with masks and tape marking off every other pew.  The reception couldn’t be held at the Women’s Club, so Jennifer’s mom hosted everyone in tents in her backyard.  We still went by the Women’s Club and used it as a backdrop for some portraits though!  While I know it wasn’t the wedding Jennifer dreamed of, it was a day of love, joy and hope.  I think most of the guests (and myself) rejoiced at an opportunity to celebrate, to play, and have some kind of “normal”.

When your first date is at an arcade then its the obvious choice for your engagement portrait session!  Thank you so much to Hangar 38 for letting us come in and play!  

I don’t envy Laura planning her wedding– as the president of the Tallahassee Association of Wedding Professionals she has so many amazing local vendors to choose from and its even harder when they are all your friends!  I am beyond honored to photograph Laura & Andrew’s wedding, especially since she is not only my friend, but she also flew to Vegas for MY wedding and did all the hair and makeup!  Having the opportunity to pay that back for a dear friend is such a wonderful feeling!

Photo and Video Booth for Tallahassee Weddings

Photo and Video Booth for Tallahassee Weddings

Long’s Photography has photographed Tallahassee weddings for fifteen years but now has something brand new to offer the Capital City– a Photo/Video Booth!  Sure, wedding photo booths have been a staple of Tallahassee weddings for years, but NONE have been like this one!

The new photo booth will allow you to create still images or moving gif video files!  We can make slow motion videos as well to really make your guests laugh!

The booth is compact and wireless, taking up very little room at your reception.  Its really easy to operate- even kids can do it!  After the photo booth captures your image or video, you input your phone number and it texts you the image right away.  This means your guests can share it straight to social media, while the reception is still going on!

The best part is that the bride and groom get the gallery with ALL the images from their event!

The Photo/Video booth is discounted as an add-on when you book Long’s Photography for your wedding photographer, but it is also available separately.  For Long’s Photography brides, it is $500 for three hours and for everyone else it is $650 for three hours.

Be sure to contact the studio as soon as possible to inquire about availability for your date!

Becca and Brandon really wanted to honor tradition with their wedding.  They no longer live in Quincy, but they came back to have their wedding ceremony in the same church as their parents and grandparents and to have the reception at the Swano club, as their parents did before them.  Even the wedding date was chosen to honor their family.  

Even though they honored family and traditional, I would definitely say the party was anything but traditional!  It was such a fun celebration with endless dancing and laughter.  It was such a joy to photograph!

Some couples you meet and instantly see why they are together.  You see the joy in their eyes and that life together is so much better for them.  Rachel and Tom are definitely this couple.  I swear they both light up when they see each other and probably the biggest challenge of the wedding day was to get an image of them together when they WEREN’T laughing!

The entire day was such a joy to photograph– it was a day filled with family, friends and laughter!  (Yes, that sounds like a Hallmark commercial, but I swear its how the day felt!)  Hotel Duval was the perfect setting for their art deco themed wedding and I ADORE the use of purple, rose gold and books into their table decor. 

I will say, it may possibly be the only wedding I have ever photographed that had a 3 minute high-five hand off of the bride, extensive Friends quotes, and lobster hats as part of the ceremony.  The wedding was as unique as Rachel and Tom and it is definitely a wedding I will never forget!

Weddings don’t get much better than Laura and Alex’s at Pearl in the Wild!  Yes, it was August and it was HOT, but everyone was so happy, fun and absolutely focused on giving this couple the perfect day!

I had an absolute blast photographing their special day and becoming friends with such a sweet loving couple!  I would photograph weddings every day if they were all this fun!
