Loblolly Rise
December 2021


Erin and Matthew's wedding was spectacular!

Their first look was such a treat since they took time to read letters to each other. I feel like it gave Travis and I more insight into WHO they are, and can I just say, they are amazing. Erin and Matt love and appreciate the other's qualities and passions. They know each others strengthens and praise the little moments. It's a very special love. 

I just love when folks use dusty blue in their wedding. It's such an elegant color, in my opinion. Truly, the color palette was really well planned out and looked wonderful at Loblolly Rise. Their winter wedding was beautiful and special.

We were so honored to be their wedding photographers and wedding videographers.

The Mullers' // Wedding // Golden Eagle Country Club // Florida Wedding Photographer https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2022/12/the-mullerss---wedding---golden-eagle-country-club---florida-wedding-photographer Tia + Amani  

September 3rd, 2022
Golden Eagle Country Club


Elegant. Kind. Luxurious. Gentle. Glamorous. Affectionate. Fun. Loving. 

This wedding had it all. This wedding should be marked as a standard.

I could tell that Tia and Amani had a deep respect and love for each other when I met them for their engagement session but it was quite clear that their families had a deep love and respect for them as well. When Tia and Amani said they wanted to do a "first touch" instead of a first look I was so excited and just look at how cute they turned out. She cried. I cried. It was beautiful.

Trickey Durham Photography // Wedding Photographers and Videographers https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2022/12/trickey-durham-photography---wedding-photographers-and-videographers Congrats!

You're engaged! Now what?


First, you need to pick a date and set a budget!

A lot of us are not sure where to start when setting a budget, which is valid because a lot of us haven't been married before. It's good to see what you can offer to the wedding and what you partner can offer to the wedding, then ask family what they are willing to help with. Thankfully, most reputable wedding professionals will have their pricing readily available or even directly on their webpages. 

(Here is ours: Trickey Durham Photography Wedding Photography Pricing )

Next, since you have a date and your budget, it's time to book your vendors. 

Vendors will be excited and happy to hear from you, but please be patience if it times take to get back to you. Most professional vendors will respond within 24-48 hours depending on the day. A lot of us work all weekend (weddings) so please note it's best to reach out during the week. 

12+ months prior

FIRST, A Wedding Planner

Top on the list a wedding planner/coordinator. This is not to say that you can't have a beautiful wedding without one, but boy, oh boy, do they make things a lot easier for you and your family. A wedding planner is like having a fast-pass at Universal; you will get through the line much faster. Wedding planners help you find vendors that match what you are looking for, start on budget, and problem solve. 

SECOND, A Wedding Venue

The wedding venue is definitely next on the list, and depending on the venue, you may need to shuffle your date if you're dead set on a certain place. Most venues are booking 1-2 years out, so it is very important to find one as soon as possible. Once you've found one it will make setting the foundation for your theme and decor so much easier! 

(Here is our wedding venue: Raylene Reserve Wedding Venue )

10-12 months prior

THIRD, Wedding Photographer / Videographer 

I think the wedding photography and videography is crucial (but I'm completely and totally biased). I have been photographing for over 14 years and my husband has been working with me for 5 years now. We have offered wedding videography for the last 3 years as an add-on.  Photography is about how you want to see the day so finding a photographer is very personal and you should make sure that the photographers you go with match your style and your vision; so that you all mesh together. I can tell you from experience that photographing someones wedding is very intimate and we spend a great time of time with our clients on the day of. 

(Here is some of our work: Trickey Durham Photography Wedding Photos )

Our Wedding Photography and Videography Pricing:
Lovely Wedding -$1750 - 5 hours - 1 Photographer - add highlight video $1000
Dazzling Wedding - $2450 - 7 hours - 2 Photographers - add highlight video $1400
Sparkling Wedding - $3150 - 9 hours - 2 Photographers
 - add highlight video $1800
Luxury Wedding - $3500 - 9 hours - 2 Photographers - 
includes 1 hour engagement session - includes 20 page photo album - add highlight video $1800

FOURTH, Wedding Florist

A florist can make or break a wedding day. They are truly magicians. They can completely transform a wedding. It's absolutely amazing what goes into building an arrangement and bouquets. Florist are not vendors you want to wait and book; book soon, and fast! **Also, tell them about your vision and hear what they have to say. Some of the best wedding I've been do, the florist had complete artistic control after the clients gave the a theme. 

FIFTH, Wedding Caterer

Yes, your family and friends are there to see you, but let's be real, they are also there for the food. Our area offers a wide and wonderful selection of caterers, but they also book up fast. Oh, make sure to let them know of any dietary restrictions and concerns up front. It makes the process later a lot easier. 

SIXTH, Wedding Music 

I'm sure all of us can name a song that moves us; makes us feel; lifts our hearts. Music is so special. Make sure to talk with your partner about what you want to hear on your wedding day; songs to make you happy, songs to honor someone, songs to get the party going!  

SEVENTH, Your Wedding Attire & Hair-Make Up 

Have fun! Get what you want to wear, not what your mom expects you to wear. One of the best tips I got when I went to try on dresses was to try on something that I didn't pick out, or didn't envision myself wearing. I am really glad I did, because that was the dress I went with. When considering your make-up, light and natural is wonderful, however, I would consider going a little more dramatic, it really helps define your face shape in photos; kind of like the theatre or ballet.

Your wedding is very important and will take time to plan, and might be stressful at times, so please don't forget to breathe and have fun. Our bodies natural forget stressful moments, your wedding should be one of those things.

Samples of Wedding Timelines for Florida Weddings // Trickey Durham Photography https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2022/12/samples-of-wedding-timelines-for-florida-weddings---trickey-durham-photography Need help with your Wedding Timeline? 

Here are some timelines from weddings in the past to help you get started. 

(Yes, these were really timelines from previous clients. Some are more detailed than others, which is okay, it’s your wedding, make it how you like!)


 

Below is a list of examples of weddings from each month. You'll notice that each timeline has similarity and differences. Some are really detailed and others are more flexible. Some have first looks, others have golden hour photos, and some have both. Your wedding is going to look different from these weddings and that's okay. These are just to show you how a timeline might look.

November 20th, 2021
Woodberry Farms 


A black dress. Hot rods. Live music. Rustic farm. Need I say more?

 NO? But I'm going to.

Red velvet bridesmaid dress. Black converses. Gold accent. 

Plus two of the most amazing people you'll ever met. Heather and Chris are wonderful people with a true understanding of what a relationship means. They are so good together; I mean so GOOD together. They know how to work hard and play hard. I love keeping up with all their fun family trips and Heather's cake baking skills. It's so inspiring to see them.

Their wedding is a perfect example of an edgy fall wedding!

Erin's // Graduation // Florida State University // Tallahassee Graduation Photographer https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2022/8/erins---graduation---florida-state-university---tallahassee-graduation-photographer Erin

April 2022
Florida State University


Graduating is not an easy thing to do, especially the last few years. I can't imagine how it felt for some of the students and teachers that went through such a disconnect during one of the most crucial times in someone's life. I really feel like the students that have navigated going to school through a pandemic are going to be some the most resilient citizens.

Erin is one of my dear friend's sister, so of course I said "heck yes!" to doing her graduation photos. (Which he paid for, as a gift for her! How sweet!) Both of them were experiencing some pretty heavy life situations at the time, which makes this moment so much more. 

Congratulations to all graduates; former, current and future graduates. 

Venue: Florida State University

Goodwood Museum, Florida
August 28th, 2021


Fire! Intense fire! That would be the ONLY word to describe this wedding. 

Nikema and Matthew are on fire for each other. They are also as hot as fire. I mean, look at how good they look. I was completely blown away at the level in which their wedding at. It was such a pleasure to watch them say their vows to each other in front of friends in family on the lawn at Goodwood Museum and Gardens, which made the perfect backdrop. 

Their couples' photos also can be described as fire. They have such a deep, passionate flame for each other. They are a force of nature together and they are shaking the world around them.

One of the best parts about my job is getting to travel.

Travis really enjoys when we get to travel somewhere warm, (he's such a big baby when it comes to the cold, lol). When we had clients that said the wedding was going to be in Carrabelle, we found ourselves in excitement. Most of us know how gorgeous that area is and this wedding did not disappoint. 

Deanna and Michael are a stunning couple with a hearts larger than life. And, they're pretty darn cool. I try to keep up with all their travels and biker adventures and I am always in awe. I think Travis a tad jealous, he's been dying to get back on a bike for years now. 

Their wedding was a beautiful backyard wedding with a little pop! Look at how inviting and festive everything looked. AND the sunset was outstanding, absolutely outstanding. Just see for yourself!

"Babies are bits of stardust, blown from the hand of God." - Larry Barretto

There is something so wonderful about photographing a newborn or baby. They are so innocent and so pure that it makes me feel beyond blessed when families let me enter their home and photograph such a gift. 

I feel like I took Carter's and Myles' (my children's) early years for granted. The days would sometimes feel like they were going by so slowly and some days really difficult, but looking back the years FLEW by. I miss how they would fit perfectly in my arms as we would cuddle. I am SO thankful that I got those memories with them, and I'm so honored to photograph those moments for others.

Ariana Grace, I can't wait to watch you grow! Kristine and Louis, y'all are doing an outstanding job.

Helpful Tips for Your Wedding Day from a Professional Photographer // Wedding Photographer https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2022/2/Helpful_Tips_for_Your_Wedding_Day 6 Helpful Tips for Your Wedding Day from a Professional Photographer 


1. Create a shot list with your wedding photographer!

After weeks of research you've hired your wedding photographer. Hooray! Now, it's time to create a unique shot list for your big day. That's everything from details of the dress, flowers, cake, to candid photos of your mom during your first dance. It's important to have a discussion with your photographer so they know what to aim for. 

2. Gather all your items for your detail photos! 

Oh man! I can't tell you how much I love it when a bride/wedding planner/wedding coordinator hands me a box with all the special details; invitation, rsvp card, menu, program, earrings, necklace, bow tie, shoes, etc. It saves so much time and it's a great way to let your photographer see what needs to be shot. 

3. Let your wedding photographer help with your timeline! 

Sometimes brides and grooms may schedule an hour for groomsmen photos, and I tell you what, those are some of the easiest photos and we definitely don't need an hour. But hey! How would you know that? This is your first wedding. Photographers know what they are capable of and how long they will need for different shots. 

4. Consider a "first look" before the ceremony! 

As a bride who walked down the aisle without a first look, Travis and I were SO nervous. I feel like he and I would have enjoyed the moment alone with our boys (Carter and Myles). Maybe then I would not have been so nervous walking down the aisle and I could have taken that time to look at the all the guest that were present at that moment. ALSO! Consider this, you want a winter wedding but the sunsets at 4:30pm and you don't want a lunch wedding, how will you get all the photos done after a the ceremony without competing with the sunset? A first look is a great way to give time for couples' photos before the ceremony/sunset. 

5. Trust your photographer! 

You hired them for a reason, right? Trust your wedding gurus. Allow your wedding photographer to kindly guide you toward the best lighting and location situations. Professional photographers know how to help pose and direct you and your partner to comfortable photo-worthy moments. A great way to shake off some of the nerves that come being photographed is to shoot an engagement session.

6. Embrace an adventure!

You only get married once (hopefully), don't be scared to have an adventure. Lay in the grass, cross that bridge, play in the rain, do the unexpected, believe me, it is worth the photos! Some of my favorite photos are the ones where the clients say, "let's go for it!" Those are magic words and music to my ears. Don't be afraid of what others may think, just enjoy your day and have fun! 

When in doubt, ask your photographer! We love questions! We are here to help you.

A day filled with love; led by friendship and kindness.

This was such a beautiful and wonderful day. Ashley and Hayley are the sweetest, most giving people you could ever ask to know. Their wedding day was planned and shaped perfectly. (Even when the ring fell in the crack in the porch and took numerous folks to fish it out.) 

One of our favorite weddings from 2021!

7 Tips for Photographing with Children // Family Photographer // Trickey Photography https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2021/8/photo-shoot-tips-for-working-with-children Photoshoot with Children

The best ways to prepare your kids for photoshoots!


1. Bring some cute outfits! Everything from bright colorful outfits to pretty tutus brings out the biggest smiles in little girls- and for the boys bowties and hats make for some adorable and dashing photos!

2. Sometimes props will out the biggest smiles! Your kid's favorite stuffed animals or action figures will make for happy photos.

3. Letting your kid run around will make for some gorgeous and giggly candid shots! Getting to see the excitement and wonder through photos of your kids will be something you treasure for a lifetime.

4. Make sure to bring water and snacks, kids get dehydrated pretty easily and you want to avoid hangry kiddos as much as possible.

5. Make sure to bring your best fun faces! When kids do photos on their own it's best to make some faces behind the camera for the best photos and big smiles!

6. Sometimes the best photos are unplanned! While having a list of family photos in mind is a great idea, there will always be a few unexpected moments. Flexibility during a family photoshoot is super important!

7. And remember, be patient and enjoy the moments! These photos and the shoot itself is a memory being made!

A lot of my clients haven't had professional photos. 

Ashley and James were in the same boat, however, you would have never known it. They have such a chemistry that made my job so easy. The session brought so many smiles and laughter. 

I'm so excited for their wedding!
Their love is truly amazing and it shows in the photos.

Tiffany and Tyler are a match made in heaven, or well, on the hunting fields near Perry. These lucky shots found each other when hunting for something else. Who knew they were both going to big home the big one on that trip? 

Watching them on our engagement session I knew their wedding was going to be one in a million, and boy, was I right. It was an amazing day with the best weather at the most outstanding venue. Travis and I really enjoyed working that day! 

Shilohs Farm is so unique! It offers a bridal cottage, large oaks for just the right amount of shade, rolling fields of green, an adorable white chapel which is attached to the most rustic-chic barn I have ever come across. There is so much love and life on that land.

Summer Photo Shoot Tips https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2021/4/summer-photo-shoot-tips Tips for Summer Photo Shoots

Get ready to make memories with Trickey Photography!


With summer coming up it opens the door for some gorgeous backdrops, perfect for family moments, romantic summer weddings, and exciting beach getaways! Here are some tips on how to prepare for summer fun.

1. Dress for the heat! While summer in the South is known for its brutal heat, it does allow for breaking out sundresses, flowy bohemian styles, and sweet skirt outfits. To match the feeling of summer and the flower-y backdrop wear white and bright colors to highlight your surroundings. To bring out the best of summer (and beat the heat) bring an umbrella. It adds a romantic flare to any photo while staying cool.

2. Prepare for the landscape. Outdoor shoots in the park are a lot of fun but need everything from sunscreen and bug spray to backup deodorant to beat the heat and the bugs! 

3. Hydrate as much as possible! Remember to start drinking water the day before for ideal hydration. Bring one or two water bottles per person and make sure to drink your water while walking to the next spot or take hydration breaks between shots!

4. Prevent your makeup from running! The summer heat can cause your makeup to run, using a good setting spray can prevent your makeup from sweating off your face.

5. Go on an adventure! Take a trip to one of the gorgeous beaches around Florida and cool off in the gorgeous crystal clear waters of St. George Island or even Alligator Point! 

6. Shoot for golden hour but don’t forget that summer lighting can bring some gorgeous sunsets! If you’re taking photos at night you can get some magical shots of your kids chasing after lightning bugs or some lovely silhouettes of you and your sweetheart. The possibilities are endless!

7. For summer weddings try using sparklers! Not only do they make for magical photos but they also highlight the beauty of summer while delighting your guests.

8. Enjoy your surroundings. Spray on that bug spray and (safely) tromp through the grass, sometimes going off the beaten path can make for the best photos! 

9. Bring bubbles for the kids, or adults! Bubbles are truly the essence of summer, they cause smiles and are perfect for getting that happy, giggly candid shot!

10. Remember to enjoy the moment, summer is the time for watermelon and fireworks! Capturing these special moments will bring smiles and laughs for years after.

November 2020

 


“It’s the little things that matter the most”

You can tell that Amanda and Kevin are in love from the way they look at each other; they speak a love language that most have never heard. It's unending. I'm so thankful to witness such a love. 

Amanda does a job that very few can do; teach. Not only can she teach, but she's the kind of teacher that really makes an impact. My children were not able to have her as a teacher, but they still know her by name and speak very highly of her. 

I've known Kevin and his family for over a decade, (or two). Even as I write this a smile comes to my face, and if you've spent anytime with the Jacques you understand why. What a family! There has very been a dull moment and I am so thankful for all the happy times. I'm so glad you are here today Kevin, I can only image how hard it was for you to get here due to all the medical mountains in your path. You conquered them, well, crushed them really. 

Thank you for letting me photograph this amazing day in your lives.

Hannah and David are two halves of the same soul and you can tell very quickly after meeting them, they complete each other. Their gorgeous wedding with white dresses and tuxes was the perfect way to showcase their unique, loving moments; not only because it was absolutely gorgeous but also because the bride used to work there and got to see some of her close friends at her wedding!

January 2021


I know having a little one shakes up your whole world, and leaves you feeling uncertain or scared, but one things I can promise you is that you will never find another love like the love you share with each one of your children. Each child is special and irreplaceable. Each child will show you new things, new love, new ways of looking at life that will forever reshape who you are. 

Riley is a very lucky girl, Leah and Tyler. You are going to be great parents! 
The dedication and love that you all show to each other will continue to grow, even through sleepless nights. 

I can't wait to see her again soon!

November 2020
Crum Farms, Crawfordville


I knew, JUST KNEW, after meeting Ashleigh and Ryan at their engagement session, that their wedding was going to be perfect. && just look at how these photos turned out. 

The fall color palette that Lily Lou Designs composed is a photographer's dream. The wispy, yet purposeful, floral arrangements on the tablescapes really help take the wedding to whole other level.

However, the icing on the cake, (speaking of, HOW CUTE IS THAT DOG CAKE?), was being in the presence of two incredibly thoughtful, loving and kind individuals on such a memorable day. Ashleigh and Ryan's relationship just makes sense; you get it from the moment you meet them. You can really see that they not only love each other, but they respect each other as a team. 

This was such a fun wedding for Trickey Photography to photograph and video. I really enjoy when we get to be wedding videographers as well. As an artist, I feel like I get to fill in some of the spaces.

It is always incredible when a new vendor enters the wedding industry in our area. There are so many talented, thoughtful, and driven business owners that surround and support our area. There is so much love to give!

The Barn at Hilltop Acres is no exception to this. The owners are not only a completely adorable couple, but they are also a great addition to what our wedding industry can offer. They put so much thought and consideration into building.
 

The venue has:  a bridal suite, a groom suite (yes, gentlemen, you actually have a place to get ready), warming kitchen, ceremony site, covered reception area, picture perfect backgrounds, plenty of parking, and great areas for photos! 
 

This venue is definitely one of my new faves!

This family, this amazingly wonderful family, is one in a million.
I've been blessed with getting to know them through church and through our home team (church small group). They have helped me through so many troubling times and they've cheered with me through the wonderful times. Constantly, they open their homes and hearts to others. I am so thankful for them and their love. 

When Shannon scheduled her annual holiday photos with me, she wanted something with luxury and charm. There is no better place for that than South Eden Plantation. South Eden is rich in history and gives a welcome home vibe to all that enter its gates.

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."- Elizabeth Stone, teacher and author. 

No truer words could ever be spoken about parenthood. Watching you grow up from a curly-haired cutie to a beautiful young woman has been one of my and your dad's greatest honors. Time and time again, we are in awe of your beautiful spirit that brightens every room you enter and your determination to succeed at both school and sports. The compassion you show others is inspiring. Seeing you firsthand tend to the needs of the children in Nicaragua during our family mission trip was one of our proudest moments. It cemented in you a passion to not only help those who are less fortunate, but it also enabled you to grow and mature spiritually. 

Your favorite bible verse has always been Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." We hope this verse stays with you throughout your life's journey and serves as a reminder of all that God has in store for you. We cannot wait to see your next chapter unfold, His blessings for you and all of the amazing things you will accomplish. This is your story, write it well. 

From Dad and Shannon

Tyler and Tiffany met in beautiful Lamont, Florida; they went to use the same tree stand and the rest is history. They were able to return to the same hunting ground for their engagement photos! I’m so excited to work with them again in February for their wedding!

Lichgate on High
March 2020


A wedding is a glorious way to start a morning! Especially, when the wedding has DONUTS and swords.  

Most Tallahassee Natives know of, or have visited, Lichgate Park, but if you haven't seen it, lemme just say, you are MISSING out. It's this tiny park on High Road, and from the moment you park and start walking down the trail to enter the park, you feel like you're entering a new world. It's amazing oasis. 

Mary and Sydney did a wonderful job with the girls hair and make-up. Don't they look perfect? The flowers from Mrs. Jodi really tie all the color of the day together. && the dress from Absolute Haven Bridal is the cherry on top!

Park Ave Inn
The Edison
March 2020


A day full of color and laughter; Ryan and Lauren said "I Do!" 

The Park Ave Inn is an absolutely adorable venue. The light that comes into the bridal suite is breathtaking. The whole building has a darling historical vibe that makes you feel like you're not in Tallahassee anymore. It's truly a wonderful place.

Lauren and Ryan picked the Edison for their ceremony and reception site! The Edison provides an all-in-one wedding experience, which makes the planning process a lot easier. They have a fun urban look that brings a fun twist to any occasion.  Not to mention, the food and drinks are spot on! 

Between the stylish details from Terri Smith Details and all the brilliant and bright flowers from A Country Rose, the whole building looked like a dream.

My dear friend, Melinda, with Abernathy Entertainment, ALWAYS brings the fun! There's never a dull moment with the ladies from Abernathy! They are always super flexible and easy to work with; which makes events so much more enjoyable. 

And to pull it all together and make sure everything runs smoothly, you have the great Amanda Reeves! Amanda is a super amazing lady with a heart of gold. She's also extremely experienced with weddings, which is perfect when looking for a wedding planner/coordinator. 

All in all, Lauren and Ryan know how to have a wedding! It was truly, and completely, a wonderful day with so much love!

Watching a family grow has got to be the most rewarding part of my job; just look how amazing this family is! 

You would never know it was a cloudy day with how much Holli was glowing during her maternity session. Her family is perfect and wonderful. I'm so thankful to be their photographer.

Good Shepherd Catholic Church
March 20th, 2020


Come rain or shine or pandemic, this couple will not be stopped! 

Deidre and Todd are the sweetest couple. I remember when I first met with them, and thinking, "how cute is this couple!" They compliment each other so well. I can't wait to see where they go in the future. The wedding day was gorgeous and she looked absolutely stunning. Everything was perfect. 

 I am so happy that I was able to photograph and take video of their big day.
I know it's not what they imagined, but I am absolutely positive that they will always enjoy this day.

Tamara // Bridal // Wedding // South Eden Plantation // Wedding Photographer https://www.trickeyphotos.com/blog/2020/6/tamara---bridal---wedding---south-eden-plantation---wedding-photographer Tamara's Bridal Session

South Eden Plantation
May 2020


Anyone that knows me, knows that South Eden Plantation is near and dear to my heart; since it's where Travis and I made our family whole. So when Kristine, with Beauty and Grace, reached out to me about doing a bridal session with Tamara, there was NO way I could pass this up. && This was such a fun bridal session with Tamara.

White Weddings kindly donated 3 dresses for us to use, and each one is stunning in their own way. My favorite is the over the shoulder dress. It gives such a simple elegance vibe, and photographs really well! 

Elle, with Missy Gunnels Flowers, did an epic job on the flowers. I'm not sure how she did it, but the bouquets perfectly complimented the dresses. The pink bouquet really accented the slightly blush wedding dress.

Kristine, with Beauty and Grace, really showed her master skills! She was able to show off all the best wedding hair styles while still perfectly highlighting each dress. I was extremely impressed! I mean, looks at that fishtail braid! && The way Kristine took the braid and magically turned it into a cute updo; AMAZING. I think it's a great idea for brides to do during their wedding day!

All of these vendors really know what they're doing! I can't wait to do another session with them!
