Shaina and Brad’s wedding was beautiful and also very fun. The ceremony was held outside in the beautiful Florida sunshine. Honestly, the weather made the outdoor photos so pretty and the job became easier. The photobooth was the hit of the night! They had an open photobooth which has some advantages because others get to jump and or see the photos you are taking. So many of the shots were hilarious!
