Nish and Vicky are married!!! Daytona Photography-Karrah Flores Photography

There is something very special about being a couple’s wedding photographer. This is a role that allows me to spend the entire day with the couple, all the moments of their day. I watch as the mother helps her daughter into her wedding gown. The look on the groom’s face as he sees his bride for the first time. The way the bridesmaids laugh with their friend as they get ready for her wedding day. I’m honored they choose me to spend their day with.

Vicky and Nish are a dream come true. They are beautiful, kind, loving and full of joy. Even as the rain came down, minutes before their outdoor ceremony was to start, they were calm and collected. They knew even though their wedding was moved indoors, the important part was they were marrying each other that day. It was beautiful and I’m in love with everything about their day.

Please enjoy these lovely moments from Nish and Vicky’s wedding.

The Cone Family-Daytona Portrait Photography-Karrah Flores Photography

I was so glad Michelle got in touch with me. The previous year we had planned to take portraits, but timing and bad weather had other plans. When we were able to get together, the elements fell right into place and the evening was perfect. We had a great time running in the sand, splashing and digging. The girls laughed and chased birds while Mom and Dad watched with smiles on their faces.

I’m so happy to have created these images. It was such a fun evening!

Jesse and Nicole-Central Florida Wedding Photographer-Karrah Flores Photography

Nicole and I have been classmates and friends for years now. She has helped me with many a wedding and is always someone that I just love to chat with. She has a radiant smile, a beautiful personality and a positive attitude that will weather her through anything….even a few surgeries. I don’t know Jesse as well, but what I do know of him, he’s amazing. His personality is magnetic, he’s funny, intelligent and always able to make Nicole light up. They are so sweet together and it is such an honor to be the one to create these images that their children will look back to, when that time comes. I’ve been honored by many people asking me to photograph their wedding, but when it is someone I’ve worked with, there’s something special about that.

I wish Nicole and Jesse all the love in the world, the happiest of lives and all the fortune they can receive. Congratulations you two, wishing you all the best with all my heart.

Mark’s 40th Birthday-Central Florida Event Photographer-Karrah Flores Photography

When Natasha contacted me about photographing Mark’s 40th birthday celebration, I was over the moon. They planned on having it at the newly renovated DaVinci Design Studios in downtown DeLand. The house was filled with amazing sculptures from numerous artists and fit so perfectly the personality and style of this wonderful family. Encore Catering handled the event coordination and delicious food, all healthy and visually pleasing selections and the drink of choice poured for the event was Mark’s favorite, Bourbon. Friends and family showered Mark with love and the weather cooperated magnificently, ending the night with a beautiful rich sunset.

It’s such a joy that I was able to celebrate Mark’s birthday with him, his family and friends. They are a magnificent group of people that I’m lucky to call my friends.

Happy Birthday Mark and may you have many more wonderful years with the people who love you!

The Harper Family-Central Florida Portrait Photographer-Karrah Flores Photography

Eli and Ben have been buddies for over half their lifetimes. I adore this family and their fun sense of humor, Eli’s blunt and often hilarious questions and comments, and of course, the strength of family these people share. I’ve watched them go through their hard times and I’ve been lucky enough to witness their family grow from one child to two. It’s been an amazing experience, being friends with the Harper family and it’s always such a joy getting to create portraits of their beautiful family.

Eli is the typical 5 year old boy. Incredibly intelligent, very bouncy and always willing to ham it up for the camera. Nora is the sweetest little 6 month old. She’s full of smiles and has the most adorable chubby cheeks!

Anthony and Abbey-Central Florida Engagement Session-Karrah Flores Photography

When Abbey scheduled to meet with me about engagement pictures, I was so excited! Abbey is the youngest child of three children and when I heard her love proposed, I secretly hoped and prayed I’d be the one to document her special day. See, her sister (who is my sister in law….and one of my first weddings ever!!!) and then her brother have been former wedding clients and I love this family as my own.

Abbey met Anthony at a wedding and swept her off her feet. They started their romance spanning a handful of states, which has only made their love stronger. On a trip to visit Abbey, we were able to spend an evening with these two and create some amazing imagery. I am so thrilled for their wedding in November and overjoyed to share these images with everyone!

The McDonald Family-Central Florida Portrait Photographer-Karrah Flores Photography

Oh I am so excited! If you’ve been to my site before, you’re sure to have seen Mallory and her sister Megan. These two girls just make me so happy to be a photographer! Their amazing mother, Becky, I’ve grown to respect and care about just as much as her lovely daughters. When Becky asked me to create their Christmas portraits, of course I was thrilled with the idea, not only because I’d be getting Megan and Mallory in front of my lens again, but because Becky would be joining us as well…

For those of you that don’t know Becky personally, you’ll never be able to identify her if you saw her on the street. Her (beautiful, stunning) hair is always up. So when the conversation came about wardrobe, that was a request I felt needed to be voiced and I’m so glad I did! We had a wonderful time in downtown DeLand, trying out some fun ideas (thanks Mallory!) and being a little goofy at times.

I’m excited to get to share these images with all of you now, since at the time we created them, they were Christmas presents and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise!

The Casey Family-Central Florida Portrait Photographer-Karrah Flores Photography

I met Jenn five years ago in our first semester at Daytona State College. We were in the black and white film class together and it was a fun experience getting to know her and all the other people in my class. As the semester ended, we parted ways, staying friends on Facebook. Jenn’s husband, Brooks contacted me asking to get his wife the gift of photography for Christmas. I was very excited to get her and her beautiful family in front of my lens, not only because they are such an adorable family, but also because I know Jenn has an eye for photography and she wanted me to do their portraits.

Jenn’s father has a beautiful property specifically designed for fun, which is where she wanted the session to be done. A few days before the session, I met her there to look around. This is the kind of place every child (and photographer) dreams of. Lots of beautiful wooded areas, amazingly creative uses of recycled materials and a catwalk in the swamp for making beautiful and unique images. I was in heaven! Jenn and her father showed me around the property, giving me the history of the property and valuable lessons on the ecology of the area. It was really a great treat.

The kids were a blast, they were polite and fun to work with. Hannah was so sweet and looks just like her mom. Drew tried hard not to smile, but I was able to get a smirk here and there. Jack was full of smiles and a little goofiness, which reminded me of my own two goofy boys. It really was a fun time.

Ashley and Nate-Central Florida Maternity Session-Karrah Flores Photography

Nate and Ashley are such a beautiful couple. It was five years ago, almost to the day, that I was photographing their engagement pictures. I was so excited to be a part of their experience, and even more excited to call them my family. When they found out they were expecting, I was over the moon…especially when it was revealed there would be another girl in the Monk family. Being fully outnumbered by boys (even my dog is a boy), I love the idea of having nieces. Get to play with them, do dress up, talk about princesses and hopefully be willing to take pictures with me.

Yesterday, Ashley had this beautiful little girl, which they named Kourtney. I’m so excited to meet her for the first time…which will be after a few days….boo to this nasty cold! ):

I wanted to share these beautiful images of Ashley’s maternity session before I get to share pictures of Kourtney herself. I’m so looking forward to that!!!

Congratulations Nate and Ashley, I’m so excited for you three!
