Key West is always a popular spot for a destination wedding.  Turquoise blue waters, warm weather, and palm trees.  How could anyone resist that? Danielle & Tony celebrated their wedding at Hyatt Centric Key West Resort.  This wedding was super relaxed yet elegant.  They had been planning this wedding in Key West for over a year, so even with a few changes due to Hurricane Irma, it was still everything they wanted!  The two of them both worked for Hyatt so why not come to Key West?

When Danielle contacted me, we instantly hit it off.  She had been following my instagram wedding portfolio, so she new what to expect style wise.  We chatted and realized we were going to be good friends even before the wedding!  In the months leading up to the wedding the two of us brainstormed ideas for photography, which made the day more unique and personalized.  What she didn't know until a few weeks before the wedding, was that I had a wedding photography superstar coming to shoot the wedding alongside of me.  Fearless Photographers wedding heavyweight Ken Pak came to join me in Key West.  This gave Danielle and Tony a 3 camera view of their wedding.  So in a way it was a destination wedding for many people, not just the wedding guests!

The groom and his men headed to Addison's Barber Parlor to start their day while the girls (and guy) got ready at the resort.  This allowed us to have everyone in a spot away from each other, which kept the distractions at a minimal amount.

When it came for first look time, we had all the angles covered.  3 cameras are definitely better than one!  It gave us a really good look at what first looks really are.  Its a time for the bride and groom to get away from the madness, show real emotion, and have what I call "their moment."  We always keep our distance at the beginning and then slowly get closer once its time.

After the first look at the Hyatt we jumped in the Expedition and took off around the town.  Danielle and Tony had expressed to me that they wanted to use the lush tropical greens of Key West as the backdrop for their destination wedding.  They wanted to stay away from the cliche beach inspired photos that you normally see in Key West, and show off what the island has to offer.  The vibe of Key West is what brings destination weddings here, so why make it look like any other beach wedding?  We headed off to Truman Annex and finished the session up using the brick textures of Fort Zachary Taylor for their couples photos around Key West.

We met back up with the wedding party for some fun photos at the beach next to the Hyatt.  Laughter, random pop up vogue sessions, and selfies ruled the moment!  We got some really fun images and then the train whistle went off.  It was time to board the World Famous Conch Train and head off to the ceremony.  We had to move the ceremony to Ocean Key Resort due to Hurricane Irma, but it gave us the same backdrop as the Hyatt would provide.  During the ceremony we had many creative angles.  Ken popped up out of hiding beside the bridal party, which gained us some great expressions.

The reception kicked off at the Hyatt with some epic introductions.  I even think I saw some of the antics carry over to the dance portion of the night.  Soundwave Key West DJ Sanaris kept everyone dancing throughout the night.

Thank you Danielle and Tony for allowing the Freas Photography team to document your day!  Your friends and family treated us like one of their own, and I appreciate the friendship that blossomed!  I truly hope you enjoy this look into your day as much as we enjoyed documenting it!
