When I heard Zahara’s voicemail, I turned to Khaled and said, “I like her already!” Her boldness and zest for life was apparent in every word. Little did I know that just twenty-four hours later, I would be documenting such a sweet and intimate elopement.

Zahara and Daniel are hosting a bigger wedding celebration next year, but wanted to document their nuptials in an intimate and romantic way. As a couple, they have a sophisticated and modern style, so it was only fitting that after their I-do’s at the downtown Tampa courthouse, they toasted with cappuccinos at the cool and London-chic, Oxford Exchange. As you’ll soon see, Italian marble, reclaimed white oak and leather panels on walls and ceilings made for a stunning backdrop.

I had such a beautiful time getting to know Zahara and Daniel- it seemed like we had been friends for years. We wish for them many, many more years of love and happiness and look forward to documenting more of their precious memories in the future.

Enjoy a few of my favorite images from our time together:
