Brooksville Wedding Photos| Strong Tower Winery | A garden themed wedding | Mr. & Mrs. Boyko

What a fantastic time this wedding was. I absolutely loved the laid back garden feel. I met the couple for our initial consultation August of 2018. I was so happy to hear just a few days later that they had chosen me as their wedding photographer. Let’s see some highlights of their wedding, right?


If you missed my post back in January, head on over to their engagement session post by clicking here.

You’ll learn some details about the couple and how they met, their story, and Billy’s adorable proposal.

Being that they are soccer lovers, (virtual high fives..soccer mom over here), it was such a great idea to incorporate their love for soccer so simply in their wedding. Instead of a guest book they decided on soccer balls! So creative and what a great item to display in their home afterwards. The old school soccer balls and some good ole’ sharpie markers is all they needed to pull this off. So clever…love it.

Aside from the balls, you can see the small hearts that their guests could also write something sweet to them and stick it in their frame which, so conveniently will be displayed in their home as well. Such a smart way to be able to incorporate memories from your wedding aside from pictures and albums.

On to the ceremony and the lovely couple.


There was a point in the night, right after the first dance that will forever be treasured, not only by the bride and groom, but the Father of the Bride and his other daughter. One who has been married for a bit, but didn’t have a wedding. The Bride surprised her father and sister with a dance. As the first dance ended, the song faded out and a song dear to them came on. The reaction was priceless and we all watched and teared up as we enjoyed the moment with them. They got their father daughter dance too! Now how lucky is that father? Both daughters and their dances with him on the same night. So honored to be able to capture that for them.

We ended the night with the set up for their thank you card. The entire wedding nailed it!

Engagement Photo Session | Soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Boyko

These two were so easy going and IN LOVE! Couples are so much fun to photograph.  Throw in a couple who is getting married, I’m beaming from ear to ear.

Since 2014 these two have been sharing each other’s company. Often seeing each other on the soccer field in middle school, then again after high school at soccer tournaments in Clearwater, Billy finally worked up the courage to ask Amie out.  With a common interest of soccer (if you haven’t noticed by those legs above) it was so apropo for Billy to propose to Amie on the soccer field.   Amie described the proposal below: Continue reading “Engagement Photo Session | Soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Boyko”
