St. Augustine White Room Wedding Feature Film // Keith + Michelle

Friday, June 20th, 2014 at 12:01pm

Keith + Michelle // Feature Film from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

Michelle and Keith’s wedding was one filled with lots of personal details, each with a story to tell. We were only too happy (and honored) to be there to capture it all. From Keith’s incredibly thoughtful proposal, to Michelle’s surprise guest for her new husband, a Johnny Cash impersonator. Michelle picked one of our newest packages, the Feature Film, for her wedding and we believe it was the perfect choice. There was so much to capture and so many incredible stories to include, that a Highlight Reel simply would not have done the job.

All photos by the amazing team at Matt Whytsell Photography.

Mint + Coral Gender Reveal Party // Emily and Stephan

Thursday, June 5th, 2014 at 6:05pm
By: Mrs Gator

Last weekend we had the opportunity to capture our best friend’s gender reveal party! As y’all know, we are videographers. It’s not often we get the chance to try our hand at photography. For us, photographing an event is very different than video-ing (is that even a word?) an event. It was nice to step outside our comfort zone and take some pictures. We had so much fun with Emily and Stephan, and are so excited for their little bundle of joy. Oh yeah, and IT’S A GIRL!

All the details were incredible. From the mint and coral cake, to the mini chicken and waffles. Emily really outdid herself with this party.

And, in true party fashion, our son Tanner decided to projectile vomit EVERYWHERE. It was in the pockets of my shirt, my shorts… we both were a mess. Thankfully it was the end of the party and everyone had pretty much left, but it distracted us from getting some more fun shots with Emily, Stephan and that Bump. Boo. Hopefully we’ll get another change at her Baby Shower in a few months. So excited!

And, our little dude is feeling better. Of course he managed to come down with two ear infections the day of the party. He was champ though. I mean, did you see his smile in those pictures? Gah. :)

Matt Whytsell Photography // Promo Video

Friday, May 30th, 2014 at 8:46pm
By: Mrs Gator

We met Matt (along with his team) at a wedding a few years back. He is so incredibly easy to get along with and his team works so well together. As Natalie says, they are like a “well-oiled machine.” Since then, we’ve become great friends. We’ve not only had the chance to work together multiple times at weddings, but we’ve also had a few sessions with Matt (Maternity and Little Man’s 1st Birthday), and we had the honor of capturing Matt proposing to his wife, Natalie.

So, when Matt came to us with the idea of shooting a promotional video for his business, we were immediately stoked! We shot over the course of 2 days and really worked hard to figure out exactly who Matt was, and why his business is unique.

We had a great time with Matt, Natalie and James (Matt’s 2nd shooter and Brother-in-Law). Matt’s longtime clients, The Duggers, had some really beautiful words to describe Matt and what he does. They were also very patient while we got all the shots we needed for Matt’s promo.

If every shoot was as fluid and fun as Matt’s was, we’d say we have the best job in the world.

Oh yeah, and the little puppy featured is not so little any more! Sampson Whytsell is almost 100lbs! Whew, I feel like we need a “Where are they now” session with Sampson. :)

And be sure to check out Matt’s website and like him on Facebook!

Crosswater Hall Wedding Highlights // Andre + Abby

Thursday, May 1st, 2014 at 7:22am
By: Mrs Gator

Where do I even start with Abby and Andre? These two were married at one of our favorite locations to shoot, Crosswater Hall in Nocatee, FL. We first shot at this location for Heather and Rob’s Wedding, and immediately fell in love. It’s one of the best places in the Nocatee/Jacksonville Area to have your wedding at.

Okay, so Abby and Andre are super sweet. They wrote their own vows – which we are totally loving this new trend with our couples – and had some incredibly beautiful words to express their love for each other. Andre certainly had us in tears.

They also know how to have fun – dancing back down their wedding aisle, busting a move at their reception and hosting an incredible 7 (or was it 10?) course dinner. We also had the opportunity to meet Angel of Angel Esparar Photography. She is totally awesome and her work… well, it speaks for itself. :)

 Abby and Andrea, thank you for including us in your day and introducing us to some incredible vendors (and for one of the most delicious wedding dinners EVER).

Much ♥ to you both.
