On September 29, 2018 I had the pleasure of capturing a sweet and romantic wedding at Zamora Hotel in St. Pete Beach, Florida. What made this wedding different for me was that this was a blended package meaning, I provided both video and photo services. This is something I don’t do often. Reason number one is that Anna Faiola Productions is a team of one! I take pride in what I do and to ensure each project is given the full love and attention it deserves, I try to focus on just one service at a time. Occasionally however, I run into scenarios where I can blend the two, due to unique circumstances.
In this case, I started by capturing raw video footage of their beautiful ceremony (by the way – his sister married them!!! ?) Afterwards I switched to photography and captured family shots, getting as many variations in as possible, making sure everyone got a chance to get in with the newlyweds. Once that was done we had a decision to make: do we utilize the (gorgeous) location or do we cross the street and go for beach photos?
After a quick pause it was decided: we’re going to the beach. Boy am I glad we did!
We had the entire beach to ourselves, it was paradise. The sunlight was perfect, the newlyweds couldn’t stop smiling… I could have stayed there another billion hours and not even notice!! Which was almost the case, as I ended up staying overtime (as I seem to always do – and nope I don’t mind one bit!) and as a result, we got a whole bunch of photos in and it was just perfect.
I am often asked “How many photos do your weddings include?” Well it depends… this one for example was a one hour package which resulted in 274 final, edited images! (You can imagine how hard it was to pick just some of them for this blog post!!!)
