Clift & Jim on Sunset Beach

We were privileged to be there when Clifton and Jim tied the knot in an intimate, breezy wedding ceremony on Sunset Beach, FL. The guys had said they especially loved Tim’s black & white work. (They’d somehow seen ‘Ennui’, his satirical student-film tribute to Jean-Luc Goddard, lol!) So we made sure to give them some gorgeous black & white photos along with their romantic Florida sunset silhouettes. We even set up a bit of special lighting to create this stunning couple’s portrait:

It’s possible to to create beautiful artistic images of your gay wedding, no matter how small, casual or non-traditional it might be.  When there’s this much love and joy filling the hearts of everyone present it’s a pleasure.

 

 

There were a few moments of alarm when we thought the power was out and there’s be no lights for the planned after-dark buffet reception. But photo assistant Ian stepped in and saved the day, finding the GFCI reset switch (probably blown by one of our regular Florida afternoon thunderstorms) that let our fairy lights glow.

It was a joyous occasion, with delicious Cuban food and great music, a beautiful sunset and balmy tropical breezes. And a charming couple who so deserve their happily ever after. Congratulations Jim & Clift!

Romantic Couple Portraits – Sunset Beach

The weather was SO not cooperating when we went out to try for some romantic sunset shots of Paul (the dear hubby) and I a couple days ago.  But Tim managed to capture a few lovely images before the storms chased us off the beach..
