Celebration Golf and Country Club, Celebration, Florida wedding of Christopher and Jillian


This wedding was almost a year ago. We shot it for another studio and handed the images over, so we didn't get to put our special touches on the post-production work. As a little anniversary gift we recently wrapped it up.

We can't be more excited either, Jillian and Christopher are such amazing people. If you've ever been to Walt Disney World you may have seen them or some of their many friends. They are characters there and work in some of the other departments around the park.

Jillian is such a cheerful person. I had no problem capturing great moments of her having fun, and then when we caught up with Christopher he was the same! I had so much goofing around with them and capturing their special day.

What a great smile and laugh she has!
