Bohemian inspired outdoor wedding at Mission Inn Resort | Howey-in-the-Hills, Fl | Courtney and Zach | Destination Orlando Wedding Photographer

The gorgeous bohemian inspired outdoor wedding of Courtney and Zach at Mission Inn Resort in Howey in the Hills, Florida is one of my most memorable wedding days to date. Courtney is a videographer (you can find her amazing work here: fondafotofilm.com) and I was honored to be trusted to capture her amazing wedding - it's always a little more nerve racking when a fellow artist comes to you for their photographs, so I take a lot of heart in the fact that I was able to be a part of such a magical experience. 

Weddings at the Mission Inn Resort in Howey in the Hills (near Orlando Fl) are always amazing! They are filled with gorgeous backdrops because the venue is one of the most unique in Orlando, with their outdoor areas. Filled with beautiful, huge trees, pretty paths and lush greenery everywhere, it's a laid-back bohemian brides dream and I love when Brides choose me to capture their wedding there.

Courtney and Zach chose the Mission Inn Resort because of the pretty ceremony area and the large reception room right off of a large patio - their wedding day was absolutely perfect. Early that morning they had a small Temple sealing and exit at The Orlando Temple in Windermere and you can find that here: .

Gorgeous TradeWinds Island Grand Resort Beach Wedding | St Pete Beach, FL wedding | Ashley and Dan | Destination Orlando Wedding Photographer

Bride and Groom walking on beach - Tradewinds Island Grand Resort beach wedding - st pete beach - Jaime DiOrio Photography - Destination Orlando wedding photographer -  (55).JPG

The absolutely gorgeous Tradewinds Island Grand Resort Beach wedding of Ashley and Dan is seriously one for the record books! The weather on St Pete Beach for this wedding was something that you can only wish for. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and the sun was warm on your face, but was sure not to make you sweat your hiney off.

Ashley and Dan invited all of their friends and family from up north to come celebrate with them at the TradeWinds Resort in St Pete because they had fallen in love with it on one of their many vacations to the resort. What better way to share your special day, than to spend it on the beach!

Ashley chose purple and teal as her beach wedding colors since they are so tropical. Her orchid bouquet and ceremony flowers were beautiful - they added the just perfect touch of beach-y-ness. I for one, can't get enough beach weddings and at sunset too - bring 'em on!

Sunset Beach Wedding in private beach home | Vero Beach, FL | Abbey and Chris | Destination Orlando Wedding Photographer

Beach Wedding Photo - bride and groom walking along beach during sunset - destination Orlando wedding photographer - Jaime DiOrio

The perfect sunset beach wedding in a private beach home in Vero Beach, FL was exactly what Abbey and Chris were dreaming of. The sun was big and beautiful for their vows but it wasn't too incredibly hot yet - because we all know that Florida can get hella-hot.
Abbey's wispy and pretty wedding dress was absolutely gorgeous along side Chris' casual suit. The bridesmaids dresses matched the sea perfectly with a differing shades of blue. Their families came from all over the U.S. to celebrate on the beach with them, and I am sure that they were so happy that they did.

Intimate Wedding | Family Home Wedding | Melbourne, FL | Catherine and Donnie | Destination Orlando Wedding Photographer

intimate wedding in family home melbourne florida

The day that you choose to say the vows that you mean with all of your heart, to the person that you love with all of your heart doesn't have to be a huge to-do, it can be just an intimate wedding at your family home even in Melbourne, FL. Catherine and Donnie decided to do just that - have their sweet wedding at Catherine's Parent's home in Melbourne, FL where a few of their children, their closest friends and their amazing families could celebrate with them.
That morning was gorgeous but as the day wore on, the rain started to come down like crazy. So, being the sweet little laid-back bride that she is, Catherine decided to bring her garden ceremony inside. Her parent's living room, complete with a huge fireplace, was the perfect little spot for them to say their I do's. Their amazing intimate home wedding was simply gorgeous and I wouldn't want it any other way.

310 Lakeside Wedding Photos | Lake Eola Outdoor Wedding | Cari & Jeremy | Orlando Outdoor Wedding Photographer

Cari and Jeremy wanted to make sure that their families and friends had fun and were comfortable at their 310 Lakeside Wedding, so they decided on an outdoor wedding ceremony in Orlando at Lake Eola. They are such a sweet pair and their quiet emotions are some of the deepest that I've had the pleasure of photographing.
When we met at their consultation, Jeremy was unsure if he wanted to see Cari before the wedding or not, but after we talked for a few minutes, I knew that he'd appreciate a first look because of his quiet nature. He is a little more shy, and so they decided that it would be so freeing for him to be able to see and hug Cari before their actual ceremony. Cue the tears. :)
Their gorgeous engagement session at a park was filled with lots of cuddles and even a guitar! I'm one lucky photog-girl.

Thanks so much to all of the amazing others that made this wedding wonderful:

Intimate Wedding | Orange County Regional History Center Wedding | Angela & Paul | Orlando Wedding Photographer

The old courtroom inside of the Orange County Regional History Center in Orlando is one of the most unique and gorgeously classic wedding venues in the city for having an intimate wedding. The stately room is on the smaller side, but it makes up for it in absolute character. Angela and Paul came from up north along with a few of their close friends and family in order to share their love for each other by sharing sweet vows and even some silly antics. Paul’s daughters decided to dance their way down the aisle and laughter just filled the small courtroom - I’m sure that back in the day, there wasn’t much laughter in that courtroom, so it was great to hear it. Angela’s Niece sang to them during the ceremony and not a single eye was free from a tear or two. Holy goodness it was gorgeous. After the tear-filled ceremony the newlyweds and guests headed to their vacation home to celebrate - and boy, was that a blast as well!

Manda & David | An Outdoor Southern Backyard Wedding | Outdoor Orlando Wedding Photographer

When Manda & David were looking for a photographer for their outdoor southern backyard wedding, they wanted someone that they could find to fit into their sweet down-to-earth family. Of course, I was only to happy to be the one! ;) Now, you know how much I love my outdoor weddings with tons of sentimental moments and sweet people. This was a perfect wedding - they even had their Uncle's awesome Bar-b-que for dinner - yum!

The groom, David, built this amazing wedding arch and they incorporated Manda's Father's horns. They wanted to stand under something with meaning to share their vows with each other.

They wanted to have a first touch, but not see each other before their wedding. David broke down as he held unto his almost bride - I could barely keep back my tears.

David's Father presided over the ceremony because they are all about family and wanted to include him into their marriage.

Amanda and her best friend ride horses all of the time, so they just had to wear their boots.

If there is enough time in the timeline I rock out some of my secret sauce editing on a few of my favorite pictures and share them with my couples from my tablet. I just love their reactions when they see some of their wedding day during dinner.

It was an absolute pleasure to capture Manda and David's special day!

Warmly,
Jaime :)

Why is it so hard to write a blog post?

So, would it surprise you at all if I told you that you already know the answer as to why it is so hard to write a blog post? Seriously - you do. What I'm about to tell you is honestly, not going to blow your mind. You're not going to walk away from this with some crazy new insight into the world of blogging or be a part of some insane viral awesomeness. I'm just wanna sit and talk for a minute.

Writing a blog post is soooooo hard because it makes you vulnerable (I totally had to spell check that word, like, 3 times). It makes your words, your thoughts, your beliefs, your opinions, and your way of living a free for all to people that you would never ever have the chance to share with normally. Blogging is like this crazy huge window into every thing that makes you - well, you. I can sensor what I write - I got that, I understand that. But, even with heavy sensor, what I write could change everything. Literally. Everything. 

Even with this post, I sit back every once in a while and change a sentence because I hated what I typed. The way I typed something didn't even come across like it sounded in my head. ahhhhhhh! I just feel this huge spotlight on me, even now, because anyone can read this. My parents, my friends, my couples - everyone that I care about can read every single word that comes outta my mouth.

What if it changes how they feel about me? What if, what they read, changes what I think they feel about me? OMG. Seriously, I'm freakin' out.

getting ready for wedding day

Being a friendly and caring person is basically how I've tried to live my entire life - and I love being this way. I love being crazy sensitive and fiercely emotional - I cry over things that other people might not even notice. I know this about myself, and I'm okay with that - but blogging - writing down how my couples make me feel, how my work makes me feel, that is totally a different monster. And it is so hard. My wedding photography and my business has this huge responsibility to document one of the happiest days in a couple's life! Everything that I put out there in the internet world has this enormous potential to revise the way my clients see me. - wooo. Give me a second while I wipe my face because I seriously can't even see what I'm typing anymore.

Now, I know I know, I shouldn't be scared about showing my true self and who cares what other people think about me. Believe me, I've heard all of that and I tell myself that all of the time. But this is different. For some reason, even though I'm perfectly happy with being myself in front of people, the internet is some bizarre alternate universe. The internet is like this gorgeous, lush oasis with the greenest grass and biggest trees you've ever seen. Little bunnies hop around and nibble on clover, the deer tiptoe through the tulips all while tigers rest peacefully in the sun. You feel so alive, so freeeeee, you throw your hands up in the air and twirl around as fast as your can. Your heart is so happy.................
Then, the director yells CUT and everything gets pulled away. The twirling stops and your arms drop to your sides. You're left standing there in front of piles of broken dreams, stacks of shattered careers, missing pieces of businesses and rotting lives. Vicious beasts are tugging at their chains with such force and their growls pierce through your happiness like daggers. They want nothing more than to rip you to shreds. Your heart is beating a million miles an hour and you want to run. You want to run as far away from here as possible.

running away from blogging

Stay. I'm here too, along with so many others that are here to make it a beautiful place. Yeah, I'm scared. I have never been so scared in all of my life. Scared that I'll say something dumb. I'll be too cutesy, or silly. Shoot, I'm even scared that I'll scare someone. But, I'm staying. I'm gonna write my heart out. I'm gonna talk to you, because you're the reason I'm here.

Why is it so hard to write a blog post? Because I haven't shared enough.

Warmly,
Jaime :)
