Lake Mary is the smaller of the two wedding venues at Sugar Bowl. The site is an intimate outdoors area with the Lake as the back drop. When I get to photograph weddings in cool locations like Lake Mary I have to take some risks, think outside the box and have my clients trust me. When I photographed my first Sugar Bowl wedding I took the bride and groom onto the lake in canoes to get some adventure photos. The couple were avid outdoors-people so this was a no brainer for them.
Amanda and Kyle met while working at Sugar Bowl. They are well aware of its beauty and my proclivity to have a "mad scientist" brain. Amanda was the assistant wedding coordinator for years so we had worked together many times. She wasn't surprised when I asked them to get into the boats and head out to the dock for some pictures. The surprise was when their dog didn't want to get left out and swam out to their boat and hopped in. Link ( the dog) was not about to let his humans take their wedding photos without him.
