love never fails: jamie and paul are married

You may remember Jamie and Paul from their awesome engagement session. They were awesome then and their wedding day was certainly no different. Such a sweet couple and so in love, these two decided to get married at their friend’s lovely home. Thank you to the Albritton’s for their incredible hospitality! Jamie is an expert at creating unique details and she worked her magic for their special day! It was also surprisingly chilly for a Florida afternoon, but Jamie still rocked it in her charming short dress from Angelique‘s; the same place where I found my wedding dress! Michelle is absolutely fantastic and goes out of her way to help you find the perfect gown for your big day. I still count her as one of the best vendors from my entire day! I just couldn’t say enough about her!

So, without further ado, here are a “few” of my favorite images of Jamie and Paul’s wedding.

I love that one of the books is a study on Paul!

The first look…

…followed by the first family photo!

Love these vow books that they used during the ceremony!

These lovebirds carved out such a great amount of time for couple images. I can’t express how wonderful this experience can be when this is a priority on your big day!



We headed out to the golfcourse next, as the soon to be newlywed’s home sits on the 8th green.  What a fun place to capture some images that represent this season of their lives.

Love this.

One of my favorites, hands down!
Another one of my absolute faves! Jamie was glowing, just like the sun behind her! Gorgeous!
Instead of a guest book, Jamie and Paul had their friends and family sign a piece of wood, which will be turned into a mantel for their fireplace in their new home. What a creative idea!!
My dad was my second shooter at this wedding and during the ceremony ran around the pond, ever so quietly, to capture this image. I’m so, so glad he did!

Jamie requested this image of their rings nestled by this verse:

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:1-8a





There were also two extra special families who flew in for the wedding. Jamie asked me to capture them together. What an honor!
The new Mr. and Mrs. Samuels hosted the reception in their back yard. By the time we arrived, it was dark and freezing. Jamie quickly changed into some warm attire and met us there ready to enjoy the evening.
This was such a special part of the reception. Jamie and Paul made a donation in honor of their friend’s whose son passed away with a condition called CDH.
What a touching tribute to such a beautiful little boy and surely one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen done at a wedding!

Jamie and Paul, thank you for trusting me to capture the special moments from your big day. It was an honor. I pray God’s greatest blessings on your lives together!

Jamie Davis-Samuels - Annie,You captured it all… the beauty of the wedding, the love that God has blessed us with, the pure joy of having such close friendships (even the ones all the way from Iraq), the bitter-sweet love for Jonathan, the promises that God has given for a love never failing, my love for the make-up aritist (my sis), the stunning property of the Albritton’s and their amazing hospitality, my love for my mentor & preacher… a.k.a. my father, the support of two sets of parents that have made their marriage work for many years and set the example for us, and last but not least the pure coldness in my eyes screaming… Bring me my jacket!

I loved that day and will remember it forever. I am so glad that you were the one to be by my side snapping away. I can’t wait for our next session and what God has in store for our lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love u!
