Mandi + Danny // Patience, Healing, Love

Mandi + Danny // Patience, Healing, Love

I previously met Mandi back when I was in high school. Having gone to a smaller school and attending the same youth group we had many mutual friends. At that rate we would consider friends like that more like family. Though I never met Danny prior to moving to Florida for 10 years, coming back this year and meeting him was as if I had known him that whole time.

During that time Mandi and Danny love grew stronger as they were put to the test of their lives. This video tells it all.

More on his story via Barnes-Jewish Hospital [http://annualreports.barnesjewish.org/stories/danny-strobbe/]

On the wedding day, there was a lot of emotion in the air and it was amazing to see all the love and support from their friends and family. The image on Barnes Jewish website tells it all, the photo of Mandi and Danny…Mandi clutching the arm of a miracle. Her strong faith, patience, and love can all be seen off 1st glance.

It's stories like these that makes me believe that love rules all, no matter the situation. I'm sure they were pushed to the limit and to see that Danny came out a surviver you can really see that he is stronger than ever. It was a complete honor to capture this day. We celebrate love with Mandi and Danny. Thanks you guys for being the example of how patience and love bring true healing.

Also, it was pleasure to be in a mini tornado with you guys post ceremony. It was definitely a first. Great times!! HAHA!

Emily + Jason

This wedding is very special for us. For one, this marks IB's first destination wedding, where we traveled to a far away land known as Dallas, Texas ;) We met Emily and Jason back in college but didn't know them as a couple. I was close to Jason, so Emily must have been THE girl he was always talking about. Years later, they are married!

Jason is very special to us, as a fellow Broadcast major, we worked on tons of productions together. I recall so many great moments of those random times in Bolin Studio lol! What is also great about Jason is that he was our wedding photographer back in March 2010. So it was only right for us to somehow be a part of his wedding. And what better reason to do so than with film.

This was just a recap of the full length 40min film that is exclusively for the Davis Family.

Emily + Jason, thank you guys so much for trusting us to capture and be a part of such an important day in your lives. May God continue to bless this union of 2 wonderful people. We are truly honored to call you friends!

Hugs, kisses, and high-fives!

Olga + Gabriel | A Perfect Day

OlgaGabe_Preview.gif

We took pride in forming part of Olga ("Kiki") & Gabe's journey towards marriage. Over just a few months, we got to know them and spent time capturing their journey that began with an engagement session. This was IB's first full covering from engagement to wedding day, and we truly enjoyed witnessing such special moments in their lives. I recall the time back in the day (but not waaay back) of my times getting to know Gabe, better known as Dunamis, back at the 88.3FM radio station in Miami where I used to occasionally DJ. But it wasn't until one of groomsman, Manuel "JBlaze", the founder and mastermind behind 88.3FM's radio show FNF Live, mentioned at their wedding reception how a certain lady used to faithfully visit the station on the nights Dunamis would co-host the show. I then started to remember and connect the dots on how their love story started…or at least some key moments that led to their wedding day. So again, we take great pride in having the honor of capturing their story through photos because we've become sort of like family...right? I mean, technically I WAS there as a witness on those radio nights :)

To the bride & groom:

This day overall was beyond beautiful! The love you two share, the love of your family and friends, but most of all the love of our God was clearly apparent on this day. Can't wait to see the great things God has in store for you guys. Kiki---your meekness shows your willingness to serve with humbleness and a kind-loving heart. Dunamis, your devotion shows dedication on how men should respond to the calling God has laid before us. We truly pray & desire nothing but His best for you! 

So what better way to recap a wedding with photos + film? Enjoy friends!

Just a quick, hilarious moment that happened at the reception. Very wrong, but oooh so funny!

Had to share! We may have to steal this idea for our next couples :)

Crystal + Harry

They say the friends you meet in college are the ones you keep for the rest of your life. And this couldn't be more true for this couple. We met Crissy back in college, and being a fellow Broadcast major, we spent many hours together! This was an exciting time for everyone involved and we are grateful to have taken part in their wedding day.

Crystal + Harry were high school sweethearts, so this event was full of friends and family who have formed part of their journey throughout the years. This day was also special, seeing that Harry has faithfully served in the Air Force for quite some time. Capturing the emotion of a wedding and their final moments with friends and family in Florida was exciting! *Special shout out to not just Harry, but all the men and women who serve the great USA, we appreciate you and all you do!

The wedding took place in Miami, Florida at The Mayfield Hotel of Coconut Grove. It was without a doubt a day full of love...these guys sure know how to partaaay!

Congrats Crissy and Harry! And may God continue to bless you in this new chapter of your lives together!

Kiki + Gabe Engagement Session

Meet Kiki and Gabe.
We had the honor of taking their engagement pictures about two weeks ago in Coral Gables, Florida and we are so pleased with how they turned out! You can truly sense the love that Gabe & Kiki share. It's the type of love that is pure and kind.
One of the many reasons I love engagement sessions is that we have the opportunity to capture the time in the couple's lives when they are the most "in love". You know what I mean? Those"in love" moments before you learn that he likes the toilet paper placed under, not over like you or how he likes to put the wet towel on the bed after a shower, or that moment before he notices that she takes 2 hours just to shave her legs and wash her hair...those moments. We want couples to look back at their engagement photos and remember the reasons why they fell in love in the first place. To remember that pure and innocent love. During Gabe & Kiki's session that's exactly what was captured.

We are looking forward to what God has in store for this amazing couple with 2 months away from their big day!! Enjoy!
