Ashley & Caitlyn Lange Farm same sex Florida wedding

My little sister got married last month :D

Ashley and her new wife, Caitlyn, got married at the Lange Farm, a bit east of Tampa, FL

It was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I’ve ever seen. Yes, I’m biased… but they prioritized their photography and chose the time for their ceremony based on when the light would be prettiest, which made it that much better :-)

My daughter is the cutie with the basket (but she’s being upstaged here by the cutie with the rings)

Caitlyn’s father walked her down the aisle first, and she waited for Ashley, who was escorted by her (my) dad.


Piece of advice: make sure everyone knows how to use a lighter if you have a unity candle! We had matches growing up so my mom was a bit stumped! I don’t mind… allows for more time for us photographers!


Here’s me getting all choked up! 


My absolute favorite image of the bunch. 




Groomsman approval!

So obviously I couldn’t be in and shoot my own sister’s wedding (not that I didn’t have my camera for some of the time) — it was photographed by my awesome associate Chrystal (you can check out her portfolio here). But I was able to lend some help during the posed picture session!

No “cold feet” here!

Though Ashley and Caitlyn LOVED their day, I don’t think anyone partied more than my daughter, pictured here with her “Elsa braid” and her Hello Kitty band-aid


Love you ladies. Caitlyn, Welcome to the family!

Julie Napear gets a Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice award!

I just got the official word that we won a 2016 Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice award!

According to WeddingWire: “The WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® 2016 recognizes the top 5% of local Wedding Professionals from the WeddingWire Network throughout the United States and abroad that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® are awarded solely based on the reviews from over 1.2 million newlyweds. Awards are determined by a combination of excellence in four factors: overall rating (quality), total number of reviews (quantity), review performance from 2015 (recency), and consistency of reviews from year to year (consistency).”

Thanks to *you*, JNP brides, for the reviews that helped me win! I look forward to another great year…  and to updating the five+ year old pictures that are on there!
