Mr. & Mrs. Schumacher // May 7th, 2016

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


“Wherever you invest your love, you invest your life.”

And that is exactly how Brittany & Luke started their wedding. They’ve been together for a little over 5 years. Over the course of those years, they’ve experienced a lot of ups and downs. Traveling across country for jobs, living apart, family losses, having their own little one, Peyton and spending time living in multiple cities. Finally on May 7th, 2016 they tied the knot at the beautiful Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Tampa, FL. Prior to the ceremony, Brittany & her girls all got ready at The Barrymore Hotel in Downtown Tampa. Such a fun time before Brittany went from Ms. to Mrs.!¬†With close friends and family to watch their intimate ceremony it was a beautiful, loving time. After the two said, “I do,” we hopped on the Jolly Trolley and went to University of Tampa for photos of the family & bridal party! After an afternoon of relaxing, Brittany & Luke, bridal party and friends & family celebrated together at their reception! With unique decorations of lemons & limes, creative bridal party entrances, breath taking first dances & emotional toasts the party ended with dancing the night away!

I am so excited to share the full gallery with the sweet couple but until then, I hope you all enjoy these sneak peaks! XO – Madalyn
