We’re so excited to share this beautiful Key West wedding with you today! This wedding is extra special because the groom is one of Dan’s former photography students. This is the second former student Dan has gotten to photograph in the last year. Last fall, Dan photographed another former student’s wedding, Carl and his wife Jill. Tim was a groomsmen for Carl and was dating Haley at the time. A few months later Tim contacted Dan because he and Haley were engaged and they wanted Dan to be their photographer! Dan was thrilled and honored to say the least. The fact that they were planning to get married in Key West didn’t hurt either!
Over the years, we’ve photographed several beach weddings in Florida, and Dan had been visiting family there since he was a child, yet this was his first trip to Key West. Haley and Tim’s Key West wedding took place at Smather’s Beach, directly across from The Sheraton Suites Key West, which is where there reception took place. It was a beautiful location that was perfect for photos. The staff at Sheraton Suites did a great job planning this destination wedding for Haley and Tim. Especially considering that this wedding took place just a few weeks after Hurricane Irma ripped through South Florida. Everyone asked what it was like down there after the hurricane, and honestly if we hadn’t know it had happened, we never would have guessed there had been such devastation weeks prior. Everyone on the island did an amazing job cleaning up – and everyone at the Sheraton did a fantastic job getting everything ready for Tim and Haley’s beautiful wedding. Thank you so much Haley and Tim for having us as your wedding photographers. We can’t tell you how much it meant to us and we wish you nothing but the best for many years to come!!
