The Palmetto Club at FishHawk Ranch Wedding by Tampa Wedding Photographer

I love shooting at the Palmetto Club. Its gorgeous landscaping, veranda and courtyard, surrounded by beautiful gardens, make it such a romantic place for a wedding! I’m sure many Tampa wedding photographers would agree with me that this is one of the most charming venues in Tampa Bay area.

I joined Kristin and Fremiot on the day of their wedding a couple of hours before the ceremony. Kristin was getting ready at the Bridal Suite of the Club while Fremiot was hanging out with the guys on the veranda, avoiding brutal midday sun as long as they could. I started with Kristin and we took some awesome detail shots of her dress. The Bridal Suite looked fantastic as a background for Kristin’s getting ready shots. Did I mention this club is a gem inside and out? We took some fun shots with Kristin and her bridesmaids and then I spent some time with the guys, just as the ceremony was about to begin.

Tampa wedding photographers are used to shooting under harsh Florida sun but we appreciate a break now and then. Turns out this was the day! As Fremiot took his place next to the officiant, the sun hid behind a small cloud and stayed there, for the entire duration of the ceremony! I love when this happens! It created an incredible light to work with. And no direct sun means no sweating, no squinting and overall easier conditions for shooting perfect pictures. As you browse through the photographs below, you’ll notice how “soft” they are in terms of light and tonality.

The ceremony was very emotional. Both Fremiot and Kristin cried when they saw each for the first time. I didn’t, but for a moment there I couldn’t see very well out of my right eye, not sure why. Kristin looked stunning in her dress – I managed to capture a shot where guests just went wild with their cameras and iphones, snapping pictures non-stop as she made her way to the front. Vows, rings… Congratulations, you’re now husband and wife!!!

The sun must have decided to extend its mercy even further and we had about an hour of formals and awesome bridal shots done before it reappeared, but by then we couldn’t care less since everyone was off to the reception. Below are few or my favorite shots from that day and here is a link to a page with even more picks. Enjoy!!
