Anna Maria Island Florida Beach Wedding at Sandbar Restaurant

Anna Maria Island Florida Beach Wedding Photographer Kristen Sloan, Sandbar Restaurant Wedding Anna Maria Island, Florida Beach Wedding Sunset Bride and Groom

Our clients hosted their Florida destination beach wedding on Anna Maria Island at the Sandbar Restaurant. Their spring wedding day was absolutely beautiful with amazing cloud cover and perfect warm (but not hot!) Florida weather. The Bride and her ladies prepped at Sunrise Garden Resort Anna Maria Island and the shaded gardens provided a perfect backdrop for the detail shots and also for the ladies portraits. The Groom and his groomsmen dressed at Palm Tree Villas Anna Maria Island which also offered a nice garden setting for the groom’s details photos and fun portraits of the gentlemen showing off their LOUD socks!

This was my first time photographing a wedding at the Sandbar Restaurant and I was impressed. The beach setting was perfect for this destination wedding, and offered nice water vistas and great food. I will be back to visit the restaurant when I want to eat directly on the gulf (which is becoming a rare restaurant experience with waterfront real estate prices on the rise!)

Don Cesar Hotel Wedding St Pete Beach Florida Kym & Michael. I’m so excited to share this beautiful wedding weekend at the Loews Don Cesar Hotel in St Pete Beach. The bride and groom live in North Florida, so this destination wedding at the Pink Palace became a great weekend celebration with friends and family. I met up with the couple and their family members before the wedding ceremony rehearsal, and the bride surprised the groom with a delicious dessert food truck for everyone to enjoy! I love being able to photograph my couples before their wedding day, especially at the Pink Palace.

Treasure Island Florida Family Reunion Beach Portraits at Sunset

Treasure Island Beach FL Family Reunion Sunset Portraits by Kristen Sloan Photography

The Tampa Bay and Central Florida region experience an unusual cold front this summer, which unfortunately caused about 10 days of steady rain showers and storms. It also coincided with my two busiest weeks for portrait sessions this summer! Families visit our Florida gulf beaches in late July and early August for some nice beach time before back to school time for the kids.

My client Aloha Kelly  is a talented photographer in the St Louis area and hired us to photograph her family and her husband’s extended family who were vacationing in Treasure Island for the week. We rescheduled twice before we hit a fairly clear evening for their sunset beach portrait session. Third times the charm! I’m beyond thankful that we were able to capture these wonderful moments…while editing these photos this week their family experienced a terrible loss. Our thoughts, prayers, and love are with her family at this time. Moments like this remind me of how much of an honor it is to capture images like these for our clients.

Treasure Island Sunset Beach FL Family Beach Portrait Session

While planning their week vacation in Sunset Beach, St Pete Beach FL, my clients booked Kristen Sloan Photography for a family beach portrait session. They had rented a place in Sunset Beach, a residential beachfront community and beach located at the southern tip of Treasure Island, Florida. Scott and I photographed the session in Treasure Island at one of our favorite public beaches. I really like the combination of the black with the aqua for this family’s portrait attire.

Don Cesar Wedding on Saint Pete Beach Florida

don cesar wedding

My photographer friend James Zambon provided me with the opportunity to photograph a wedding with him at at the historic Don Cesar Hotel on St Pete Beach FL in late April. I love photographing weddings at historic hotels, with the Brown Palace Hotel and Hotel Teatro my former wedding favorites when I lived in Denver for 18 years. Now that I have moved to sunny St Petersburg Florida, I am beyond pleased that historic hotels like the Don Cesar and Vinoy exist as elegant wedding venues.

The Don Cesar aka”Pink Lady” opened in 1928 during the jazz age and some it more notable guests from that era include F. Scott Fitzgerald, Al Capone, Lou Gehrig and Franklin D. Roosevelt. With the recent popularity of the 2013 Great Gatsby film, I envision a Gatsby themed wedding hosted at the Don Cesar. I would love to be the photographer!

Katie and David planned a beautifully simple late April wedding at the Don Cesar where they were able to enjoy the hotels amenities and ideal location on St Pete Beach. I photographed Katie and her bridesmaids getting ready in her balcony suite. James met up and photographed the groom David and his groomsmen in the lobby bar, while I started photographing Katie and the girls in a pretty hallway on the 5th Floor ballroom level.

Katie and David’s ceremony was at 6:30PM in the central Courtyard of the hotel, allowing guests a great vantage  of the hotel point to view and hear their vows. After the ceremony we photographed Katie and David on the beach, along with the bridal party. While the sunset was disappointing this evening, the soft natural light on the beach worked well for photos. Their cocktail hour, dinner and recepetion was held in the North Terrace Ballroom.

Working with James is a pleasure, and we had a great time photographing Katie and David’s wedding. We both have been photographing weddings for a number of years, and its nice to work with a professional who understands how to photographically tell of the story for our clients wedding day.

Cherry Hills Colorado Wedding with an Elegant French Estate Inspired Pink Rose Theme

pink rose wedding french inspired wedding

My clients hosted their wedding at their home in Cherry Hills, a community south of downtown Denver Colorado. The bride’s inspiration for the wedding theme and decor came from Sofia Coppola’s  film Marie Antoinette. Various shades of pink, creams and pale blues were used throughout the French inspired wedding decor and flowers.

pink wedding flowers

The entire estate was decorated with floral arrangements. Feather  and rose topiaries were located at the driveway entrance to the home,  rose pomander balls hung from the trees, and a white carriage was adorned with flowers and feathers in the front yard. The couples initials in gold were also hung from the trees.pink rose weddingpink rose wedding flower

The couple decided to have a daytime private ceremony with their immediate families and children in their rose garden. Their florist created a fabric lined canopy for the ceremony site, adorned with pink roses. Cream couches allowed family members to be comfortably seated during the morning ceremony.  Lunch was catered and everyone was able to relax in the afternoon.wedding carriage roses

Guests arrived in the early evening, greeted by the Bride and Groom at the front foyer door. Guests walked through the main floor of the home to the cocktail hour, located on a stone patio. A massive fountain  in the patio courtyard was decorated with flowers and handmade pillows to create a comfortable retreat for guests.cherryhillscoloradowedding12

The Marie Antoinette theme continued during the Cocktail hour with passed for d’oeuvres and food stations with delicacies such as sautéed frogs leg. Three signature cocktails were designed and served  by the couples favorite bartender, in addition to french wines and champagnes.

Guests walked off the patio to open tent in the Bride and Groom’s yard featuring long tables covered in blue raw silk. An elegant plated multi course meal was served under candlelight.

Guests favors from Laduree were shipped directly from France, and placed on the tables.

Saint Petersburg FL Warehouse Arts District Portraits of Tiago

Saint Petersburg FL arts distric photos

saint petersburg florida portrait photographer

Several times a year I join some fellow strobist photographers and local Tampa Bay models for an on location group photography session. I had met Tiago at a Museum of Fine Arts Saint Petersburg FL Erotic Art opening exhibition a few months prior and decided to invited him to model at our photo session in the Warehouse Arts District of Saint Petersburg, which covers a large area that runs from First Avenue North to Sixth Avenue South and 14th to 28th streets. Starting in 2000,  with Saint Petersburg Clay Company, the district has attracted painters, glass blowers, ceramic artists, and metal workers who live and work in this industrial area of Saint Petersburg.

Tiago accepted and joined us at U562 Art Studios and Showroom, a gallery and working artist studio. We walked around the surrounding neighborhood and I spotted this blue pickup and last light in the sky.Working quickly, my assistant hand held one SaberStrip flash modifier for these shots, with my SB-800 inside triggered by a Radio Popper Jr. I shot my D700 with my Nikon 85mm lens at 2.8, ISO 200.

I love how Tiago’s clothes draw upon the blue pickup and then worked very well when I photographed him in front of glass artist Duncan McClellan’s studio doors. I spotted Duncan when we first arrived and he kindly offered for us to shoot in his studios gorgeous gated exterior garden. I thanked him for the generous offer but declined knowing that I had my eye on this door. I love how the light front the Saberstrip shadows the metal work on the door.

I strongly recommend visiting the Saint Petersburg Arts District during on of its Second Friday trolly tours. People can park at any of the stops and hop on the trolley, which will take them to about two dozen studios where art is made and sold.
