Sometimes you just know from talking on the phone with a bride and groom that it will be a great wedding to photograph. Rusty is from Indiana and Ira is from Russia. They met on business when they were in China. I was concerned about a language barrier with Ira, but as it turns out she speaks four languages. They were both so enthused about the wedding photography. Almost all of the guests flew down from Indiana. What was really exciting was that even though Ira's parents could not be at the wedding in person from Russia, at the reception they were able to bring them to the wedding on SKYPE. By as we call it in the industry, "dragging the shutter" on the camera I was able to take photos of her parents on the computer. The weather turned out to be perfect with just a sprinkle at the beginning of the wedding. The Beachhouse Restaurant on Anna Maria Island is just an excellent venue for weddings. Shawn Rhoton the Events Coordinator is fantastic to work with. Thank you to Ira & Rusty for allowing us to photograph your beautiful wedding.
