    Concept Photography is a husband and wife shooting team that travels the world in search of amazing weddings and awesome clientele. It was designed through the simple idea that there should be a higher standard for creativity and performance in the wedding photography industry.

    One of our main desires is to transform the wedding scene – by picking it up, breaking the status quo, shaking it some more and putting it back in a new form.

    Please consider this as our way of introducing ourselves, as an invitation to check out our website and get a glimpse of something a little different in lifestyle photography.

    We really look forward to getting the chance to work with you and, together, rock the wedding scene!

    Wishing you luck + love,
    Jason + Sara

Interview with the beautiful bride, Mitzi:

HOW DID YOU TWO MEET? Chad and I met online in January. I expanded my area from 50 miles to 500 miles. Chad saw that I had looked at his profile and emailed me. We started emailing and talking on the phone and then he came down to Orlando in February to meet me. All it took was adding one zero for us to meet!
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU THE MOST TO YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE? What attracted me the most to Chad was how genuinely nice and sweet he was. I could tell he was a man of good integrity and good morals. He said that my beauty but also that I was smart, funny and I really liked sports.
HOW DID HE PROPOSE? Our proposal occurred in Washington DC. We flew up there for my family reunion in Maryland and decided to make a day of it in DC with my brother and cousin. We toured Arlington Cemetery, then the museums and then started walking the mall to see all of the monuments. At the end of the day we arrived to the Lincoln Memorial and started taking pictures. Chad told my brother to take one more picture and that was his code phrase to turn it to video. I thought we were taking another picture and I started asking Chad “What are you doing?” several times. I then noticed that his hands were shaking and he was teary eyed. He finally started to speak after giving me a kiss and said that since I was born in Washington DC and my life started here that he felt it was the perfect place to start our lives together. He got on one knee and proposed and of course I said YES! He put the ring on my finger, then we hugged and kissed and then everyone visiting the Lincoln Memorial at that moment started cheering and clapping. It was the perfect ending to an amazing day!
WHAT INSPIRED YOUR VISION FOR YOUR WEDDING? The inspiration for our wedding vision was our venue Bella Collina. It is so beautiful with amazing views and scenery that we wanted our wedding to be very elegant with a hint of rustic.
WHAT WAS YOUR BIGGEST PLANNING CHALLENGE? The biggest challenge planning the wedding was our 4 month time frame. We became engaged on July 31st and married on November 30th. It was a little hectic but planning an amazing wedding in 4 months can be done!
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT OF YOUR WEDDING? My favorite design element of our wedding was the overall ambiance of the ballroom. From the amber lighting, to the gold linens with ivory flowers and black ribbon accents, to all the romantic candle lights throughout the room. Chad liked the “S” down the center of the aisle during the ceremony and the framed poster size program of the wedding party that welcomed all our guests!!
DID YOU HAVE ANY DIY DETAILS? Our DIY projects included the mirror table seat assignments and our favor the Mr and Mrs Smith picture and CD of our favorite songs that remind us of each other and how we feel for one another.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY? The most memorable part of our wedding day was our first look. I could not wait to see Chad and could not wait for him to see me. It was very emotional, especially for Chad. It was so nice to have that intimate moment between the two of us.
DESCRIBE YOUR DRESS: My dress is an Alfred Angelo dress. It is an organza fit and flare with a sweetheart neckline accented with a little bling, buttoned up back, and a layered train. Loved it!!!
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER? We loved every minute with Sara and Jason our photographers. I first saw their work in a wedding album on our first visit to Bella Collina and I was hooked. I knew that I wanted them after seeing how beautiful and amazing their pictures were. Once I met with Sara and felt completely comfortable with her it was a done deal.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND AS A COUPLE? Next up for Chad and I, is getting Chad moved to Orlando after he finds a job here. Also finding a bigger house with a big yard for our dog Bailey, we would like to expand our little family.

Interview with the amazing and beautiful couple, Tracey + Tim:
HOW DID YOU TWO MEET? We met through a mutual friend, but it was not love at first sight. I didn’t think he was my type and he found me to be a little unfriendly. We didn’t actually start dating until 2 years later.
Tracey: His sense of adventure, his stability and of course his good looks.
Tim: Her extreme sassiness
HOW DID HE PROPOSE? He had been trying to think of way to propose without planning anything elaborate because he didn’t want me to have any idea of what was happening. We had our first kiss on a balcony outside at night so he decided our balcony was the perfect place. Of course he was out there enjoying the night and I wouldn’t cooperate so he finally had to tell me there was fire happening outside and I needed to come see it. When I got out there and then turned around, he was down on one knee.
WHAT INSPIRED YOUR VISION FOR YOUR WEDDING? I just wanted a classic look and feel with romantic and glam touches.
WHAT WAS YOUR BIGGEST PLANNING CHALLENGE? 85% of our guests were from out of town. I wanted to create a weekend and experience that was worth traveling for.
DID YOU HAVE ANY DIY DETAILS? I am probably the least crafty person in America. Luckily, I have an amazing bridesmaid who could make toilet paper look good (side note: I did not use toilet paper for my decorations). Anyways, she created my thank you notes at each place setting and placecards and helped with all my little odds and ends.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY? At some point during the reception, I looked around and realized all of my very favorite people are in one room and I am marrying the love of my life. Lucky, lucky girl.
DESCRIBE YOUR DRESS: A little vintage with a little glam.
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER? A.MA.ZING. Imagine walking into your favorite store and finding everything you try on fits perfectly…then going up to the register and realizing everything is on sale for $1. Better than that.
Sara and Jason are responsive to every inquiry, so brilliantly creatively and they make you laugh the entire time they are shooting. On top of that, when you see your pictures, you realize that they managed to capture all these beautiful moments that you would not have remembered on your own.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND AS A COUPLE? Nothing, I hope. I need a break ☺.

Interview with the beautiful couple, Kristin + Mark:
HOW DID YOU MEET? We meet online. Eharmony to be exact.
Kristin: I was attracted to Mark at first because of the answers he had posted on eharmony. He was a firefighter first off, and growing up in a fire station with my parents meant I knew and lived the lifestyle. Second was all his hobbies – hunting & fishing are both things I love to do and wanted somebody to enjoy them with. Then of course there is the fact that he’s very handsome!
Mark: I was attracted to the fact that Kristin was such a young a driven person. She was motivated to work hard and make a future for herself.
HOW DID HE PROPOSE? He proposed the morning we were leaving for St. Augustine, Florida. We were packing all of our stuff when he kept telling me I forgot something. I kept assuring him I did not when he pulled out the ring and proposed. He told me later he was suppose to do it in St. Augustine, but that the ring was burning a hole in his pocket and he couldn’t wait any longer!
WHAT INSPIRED YOUR VISION FOR YOUR WEDDING? We both love the ocean as well as being comfortable we wanted people to just have fun!
TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR VENUE: Mark actually picked the venue. He had a fishing tournament there. He came home from it and told me we should get married there one day. I think we had only been together 6 months.
WHAT WAS YOUR BIGGEST PLANNING CHALLENGE? Hardest part for me is that I work nights and sleep days. Unfortunately places aren’t open at 2 am when I’m awake!
DID YOU HAVE ANY DIY DETAILS? Most of the things were DIY. All the little star fish. The centerpiece boxes, sand box with star fish ect., all home made.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY? Seeing my future husband up at the alter waiting for me.
DESCRIBE YOUR CAKE: We had a desert table with cupcakes then a two tier white wedding cake with star fish on it.
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER? Always amazing! You guys are truly the best and we love working with you guys! Your vision is amazing!
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND AS A COUPLE? We will continue to live and love like we always have. Enjoy the time we have together and continue to explore the world we live in. Eventually we plan to have a family of our own, but for right now we just want to enjoy our time just the two of us!

There is no question that we are grateful for (absolutely in love with, as a matter of fact) what we get to do for a living. We often get asked what it is that we love most about being wedding photographers, and the answer is simple – we get to spend the happiest day of someone’s life with them, and then give it back to them better than they remember it.
The answer we do not give, although it is almost as true, is that weddings, (brides + grooms especially) can be hilarious. We literally laugh out loud when going through the pictures from some of our weddings.
So today’s post is dedicated to the laughter, hijinks, shenanigans, goofiness, silliness and pure joy – we love you! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
