Rachel + Joe
I have a bit of a confession. I’m a huge Bucs fan. Like I mean a HUGE Bucs fan. You don’t even have to know me to know this. All you have to do is see me around, because there is a 99% chance I am wearing something Buccaneers every single day. That being said, let’s just say I was a little excited about being a part of Rachel and Joe’s wedding, since Joe is a coach for the Bucs. We even did their engagement shoot in an empty Raymond James Stadium (which was truly amazing)! As an extra bonus, Rachel is pretty much the sweetest person in the world. We hit it off from our very first phone conversation, and she was so much fun to work for. Luckily, I will get to see both of them at future Bucs games:)
Their wedding took place at the Crystal Ballroom in St. Pete, although they got ready at the Grand Hyatt. My favorite moment of the ceremony (and probably the entire wedding) was when Joe gave a ring to Rachel’s 5 year old daughter London. It was such a sweet moment, and I couldn’t help but get a little emotional. If that wasn’t enough, London got a hold of the mic during the reception and told Joe she loved him. I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the place – certainly not from Joe. It was such a special moment, and I am so honored to have been chosen to capture it.
