They were always going to elope. It was just a change of a few details that brought them to me in Key Largo at Kona Kai Resort. I am so blessed beyond my understanding to have met them and had them with me for their beautiful ceremony. Elopement and Wedding Photography & Film is not easy. But we knew these two were unique and super lovely. So we went for the complete package with still images and video to share their beautiful story.
For real. The world does stop when it's your turn. When the people and things around you bend ever so slightly, without perhaps even looking, in your direction. To catch a glimpse or steal a peek.
Simply being near this 'new love' moment - attracts us like bees to polen, as an intimate bond is laid open for the universe to revere. It could be rings of grass and a bus stop on a busy street, it's always going to be a magnet for all humanity!
The noise of the ocean, boats, the palms, birds gently drop to a whisper, the hush comes over your space. Dolphin fins break the waters surface. A magical un-written silence befalls any revelry, even the cats stop, regally poised and gaze upon that mysteriously impregnable bubble that encompasses you for your pledge of love, vow of commitment, statement of life time bonding.
Kayla and Anthony surprised me every step of the way. From hello to thank you. The thank you, like the hello, comes from such an obviously deep embrace for the love in the world. It came out in this way in our photographs, but also in her reaction to them.
“Still swooning. I definitely cried viewing them. You are so talented. Idk how you did it but you captured us so perfectly. Every time I look at them I relive the best day of my life & that is exactly what every bride should feel. Needless to say you exceeded our expectations. You will forever hold a special place in my heart & I just know our paths crossed for a reason. You will be a lifelong friend. Please send me where to drop a review of your amazing work. We love you Nada ❤️"
And so the world is elevated a little by this beauty. This moment. The capturing of which we are blessed to have been a small part of. Where there is true love there is a legend in the making. These two young souls have the makings of legends.
Young, savvy and both fast, really fast runners. Like all young people should be, their visit to the Florida Keys was packed with honeymooning trips that would satisfy even the radd-est adventurer.
There was an epic back country honeymoon fishing trip, by the photos she sent my way...she out-fished him. Setting the tone for the future Mr & Mrs 'Fish-On' Bynum.
And just saying those two things 'honeymoon & fishing' in the same sentence show us what kind of a life these two are going to have....lucky kids is all I can say. I Super Love you Kayla and Anthony. Congrats. Smooochhhesss
Kayla Bynum’s Testimonial
“I could write a book on not only Nada, but her breathtaking work. I reached out to Nada nearly just a month before our wedding was cancelled due to COVID. We wanted to change our plans at the last minute to an elopement ceremony in Key Largo Florida, coming all the way from NC. We reached out to many photographers and had many conversations with them. From the moment that I spoke with Nada I knew she was the one. We clicked. She is a breath of fresh air. She is professional, patient, and kind. She wanted to make this day happen for us and was very warming to the questions that I had. She did what you will not find a lot of and that is expressing her want to photograph, as in it is not just a chore to her or a job to her, but instead it is what she loves to do and this shows tremendously. She went above and beyond for us and captured the magic perfectly. She exemplifies true hard work and dedication. She gave me what every bride should feel, for one, no pressure she let us do our thing and she simply did her thing. Every bride should look back on there wedding pictures and feel what I feel the best day of my life. She captured that. The talent is unreal. She got our pictures back extremely fast and even made sure to ask if I wanted her to change anything which speaks volumes. And if you think you do not want a video, YOU DO! We chose both videography and photography from Nada and when I say it could be published, it could. Her work is simply amazing and there is nothing else that describes it. We will forever cherish it, and that is what every couple should feel. Choosing Nada was simply one of the best decisions on top of the best day of our lives and we will forever be grateful for her amazing talent.” Mrs. Kayla Bynum
