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”.

Mary & Andrew

Mary and Andrew had a travel themed wedding with a full mass at St. Peters Anglican Cathedral and and an evening of dancing at the Four Points Sheraton in downtown Tallahassee.  It was the perfect day for this jet setting couple who met swing dancing!   There focus was on their faith, their love and their family.  The day was full of laughter and joy and it was such a pleasure to photograph!

“Rain” is definitely a four letter word when it comes to weddings.  No bride wants rain on their wedding day and I think the “10 day weather forecasts” only exist to make brides crazy worrying.  We tell brides that rain on their wedding day means good luck to make them feel better, but for Jenny and Sergio’s destination wedding in historic St. Augustine, the rain really works in their wedding photos!  (and I don’t just say that to make them feel better about the weather!)  The storm clouds and moody light really add to the weathered and time worn look of historic St. Augustine where they wed in a beautiful historic church.  So, for once, I can be happy about rain on a wedding day!

I have been photographing weddings now for more than ten years and the stories and emotions of that day still have the power to bring me to tears.  It is not lost on me that couples choose to have me document what is often the most important day of their lives.  I feel lucky not only to have such a rewarding job but also to call Tallahassee my adopted home.  I have been in Tallahassee half my life now and it has been the place where I began Long’s Photography and its the people of Tallahassee who made it a success.  To say thank you, I am looking to tell the story of a couple here in Tallahassee that are getting married in 2017 or 2018 and I will be gifting them their wedding photography!

Amber and Tim

Amber and Tim

Amber and Tim met because of church so it was the obvious choice to not only have their wedding, but also their reception there.  Since Amber is a teacher and their friends and family all have children, the couple chose to have a morning ceremony with a brunch reception so the children could play in the bounce house while the grownups played cornhole!  It was an absolutely perfect fall day in Tallahassee and everyone came together to celebrate such a sweet, loving couple!
