I love photographing weddings but have chosen not to do more than a couple a year so I can have a flexible schedule to attend weekend events with my kids. I have missed them and since I love weddings I have been very happy to have gotten to do 3 in the past month. How fun! This wedding was especially wonderful for me to get to be a part of because of our friendship.
In 2009 I moved to Peoria to be close to 3 amazing couples who I love dearly and consider my family. Scott and Tammy Senti, Rick and Kim Gibson and Scott and Becky Rosenberg. We have fun every time we get together and I wanted to live close to them and loved Peoria so it was a win! Shortly after I moved here, the Rosenbergs decided to relocate to Florida. I always thought I would follow them there but then I met Ryan and plans changed.
In 2014 Becky was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and passed away. It broke all of our hearts and Scott was lost without her. He found love again though in Nancy and when he asked me to be their wedding photographer I was honored! Nancy is funny and kind and a joy to be around and I look forward to having more chances to visit them in Clearwater Beach and get to know her better!
Their wedding was so beautiful. Picture perfect event center and everything was amazing! They decided to combine their last names of 'Rosenberg' and 'Romano'. The first 3 letters of his and last 3 of hers and both took the last name Rosano. They are such a thoughtful couple that there was even a picture of Becky on the memorial table as you entered the building.
They are now enjoying their honeymoon and I am enjoying watching the Facebook posts! So many people I knew at this wedding. Friends from Peoria, Ohio and Colorado as well as friends I had only known on Facebook until the wedding that live in Florida. Absolutely beautiful wedding ceremony, venue and couple and I know they will be blessed with many, many happy years together!!!
It really is...at least according to the calendar. Now if you go outdoors, it's in the 80's today so it doesn't FEEL like it but hopefully it will for the family portrait sessions this weekend. October has started off with a bang! After spending the last week of September in Florida photographing a wedding (I am SO thankful it wasn't THIS Thursday as the hurricane is pending!) I had a wedding to photograph October 1st as well. Now to kick this cold or whatever illness has had a grasp on me and I will be all set! Nearly every Saturday and Sunday in October is booked and several weekdays and weeknights as well. I love summer but am so excited for all the family portraits in the leaves that October brings as well! If you are considering having your portrait made this fall, get in contact with me ASAP as only a handful of times remain!
