Juan and Bianca’s wedding happened at Bella Collina in Monteverde, FL.
Bella Collina happens to be one of my favorite venues to photograph, well, anything really; throughout Florida. It’s almost like someone built a real film set that takes you to a picturesque town in Tuscany. There are so many great spots to photograph at this location that you almost have to choose which ones you will do from wedding to wedding.
Bianca and Juan made the choice to see each other before the actual wedding ceremony. There are pros and cons to this approach to a wedding day. This really paid off for them since they allotted plenty of time (almost two hours) just to work with me through the property getting amazing photos before their ceremony took place. This also allowed them to connect with family and friends who travelled from Columbia and Brazil for the wedding.
As the shoot progressed they became so very comfortable being photographed that they forgot I was there. So the images not only have this timeless look because of the location but they have a candid look about them that I strive for in my photographic style.
