Akilah and Brock's Engagement session

For this sweet couple, a casual and adventurous engagement session down at Key Biscayne was just perfect. With the perfect weather, the most magical scenery, they played, cuddled and fell even more in love. Akilah and Brock have the sweetest, most adventurous love for one another and it just comes naturally for them. They’re comfortable with each other and it showed during their entire session.” I LOVE when my brides and grooms go with my crazy ideas. Hey, let's walk way out there and take some pictures, what do you guys think ? Akilah took a deep breath and said let's do it ! I am so glad we did, look how amazing these pictures turned out. Their wedding is coming up this June in the beautiful venue Key Largo lighthouse coordinator Cate Tenopir Events

Mr & Mrs Curran

Rich and Mayli are such a dynamic couple! They have fun with each other and you can see how much they love each other.

The day of the wedding I went to photograph Mayli getting ready first. She was so calm and  having a blast helping everyone get ready. There was so much laughter and joy in that room! Leading up to the ceremony, Rich and Mayli chose to have a first look in doors by a staircase filled with flowers. After their first look we did some pictures outside the venue, but we took a drive to another location for a more rustic setting. We had a blast and I could have photographed them there all day!

The day couldn't have been more beautiful, from the gorgeous weather, to their adoring family and friends, "hint hint me "  to the loved ones looking down on them from Heaven showering their blessing. Thank you Rich and Mayli for choosing Yolanda Hill Photography as your wedding photographer.  Location of Venue Germack Event's Hollywood Florida

Tara and Greg's  wedding at the Palms Hotel & Spa was an absolute dream. (With Miami wedding planner Yasmin Gomez behind the wheel, I wouldn't expect anything less) Family and friends traveled from all over the world, to witness their I do's. 

Tara and Greg opted for a first look, which was so sweet and special to see both their reactions as they saw each other. 

I met Tara a few years ago when I photographed the kids at The Victory Center for Autism. I though Tara was such a beautiful girl with such a sweet personality. I was honored that they choose me as their wedding photographer. Everyone was so kind and sweet, and boy what an amazing party reception they had. With special dance performers that had everyone on the dance floor all night long. I couldn't be happier for this beautiful couple, congrations again Mr & Mrs Cohen

Here are a few of my favorites from their day...

Chandrima and Ryan's Wedding

Chandrima and Ryan payed special tribute to the bride's Indian heritage the day before their wedding. I loved how seamless Chandrima style transitions from traditional Indian attire to her white wedding dress. Both sides of the family were so welcoming, I enjoyed getting to know everyone.

Tiffany and Mark had the most perfect day! It was a beautiful ceremony at the McCoy's residence. Sweet jars of honey for all the guest to enjoy from their own company McCoy Honey. Doyle Video Productions of South Florida Captured the day with his beautiful video. DJ Palm Beach Uplighting was simply the life of the party, everyone was up and dancing the night away. EyeCon Makeup by Alyson Khanna did an amazing job with all the girls and Tiffany, always a pleasure working with her. and Simply Flowers did a flawless job with the flowers.

Addies Smash the cake session

I am so lucky that I get to be part of so many couples journeys. From their engagement session to photographing their child's first birthday. Seriously how adorable is Addie, I have had the pleasure of photographing her a few times, lets just say I always get big SMILES.  Thank you to Ben and Jen for always trusting me with every special moment of their lives. I look forward to photographing Addie's wedding one day LOL.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Bernius ! 
I headed to my first wedding of 2018!! Brad and Laura and their wedding party was so fun to work with. The Bernius celebrated their big day at their beautiful home. Their country decor was outstanding !!! However, as awesome as the decor was, the best part of the day was seeing Brad and Laura together… happy, in love, and MARRIED!!!  

Brad and Laura, what an honor it was to be the one to capturing your day.

I loved so much about their day, but there were a few things that stuck out to me!  I was obsessed with their DJ! WOW! He had everyone off their feet and in the dance floor. I've known Janessa since the 6th grade, I would never have guessed, I would be her wedding photographer.  Bob and Janessa, I love you so much. Your wedding day was more amazing than I could have imagined, and it was an HONOR to serve you and love you as a friend AND as your photographer!

It was such an honor to shoot this wedding with one of my second shooters Gaby. We always have such a great time. Location Colony Cabana Club and  Dj Eddie B & Company

Melissa and Aaron Wedding

Regardless of how the weather is, you have to give it your all. Blue skies all day long, then a small period of rain came right before dinner. All the vendors came together, went above and beyond, and gave Melissa and Aaron a memorable dinner setting.

"WHY I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS?!""

 The truth is that I love all types of photography, but weddings have my heart. Why weddings ? It's a good question, and one that I used to often stumble over as I would casually mention the love of the married couple, how fun they are and how happy the guests are ! The love and emotion you are declaring promises to each other in front of family and closest friends. The beauty, the makeup, the hair, the dress and the bouquets. Prettiness is in abundance!   Weddings are my favorite thing in the world to photograph, but here is a more considered response...   CHALLENGES :     The CHALLENGES of dealing with whatever the day throws at me. The changes in weather, photographing in a location I may not have seen before and having to think on my feet is what I THRIVE on. You have to be fast, and you have to think fast.    LIGHT :     Light is constantly changing throughout the day. In any one moment an event can occur in your peripheral vision, one must stay sharp and know the camera inside out to compensate for changes in exposure. I relish the challenge that comes with being quick on my feet being able to work at pace. Dark churches, people standing in your way, even walking from shade to sunlight can produce huge jumps in exposure.     THE UNEXPECTED:   This is one of the primary reasons why I love shooting weddings, people go through a variety of emotions on the day. Laughter, tears, and pure joy, all within the space of ten hours. It is truly magical. Because of this you have to be mindful of everything going on around you, not just the key moments of ring exchanges or first kiss. Guest may be crying, flower girls may be yawning, anything could happen and that's why they're so exciting.    THE CREATIVITY:   Each wedding is a brand new challenge and guarantees to keep you creatively engaged. Even if you shoot the same venue three weddings in a row, the light will change, the weather will change, and the people will change. Each of these factors will dramatically alter the final story. No two weddings are the same, so they should never be approached in the same way either.  MY CLIENTS:    The single most rewarding thing about photographing a wedding is when a client tells me they can relive the day through the images. If my photographs re-enforce what they felt and mirror everything they experienced on the day, then I know I have done my job.     Yolanda Hill

Mr & Mrs Metcalf

 Key Largo Lighthouse has such a place in my heart, I have been a part of so many memorable weddings there. The atmosphere encourages fun times, the foliage of the environment creates beautiful backdrops, and the sunsets are magical. It gives me the canvas to create images that outline my style as a Florida Keys wedding photographer. Jessica and Sean kept their wedding intimate with just a few of their closet family and friends.  What an honor. It was so great to get to know there two, their families and friends.

Mr & Mrs Eschenbach

Key Largo is like a revolving door for destination weddings in Florida... and it's no wonder, with it's postcard perfect sunsets and an abundance of intriguing oddities to explore. But that doesn't make anyone's wedding day less unique and special to photograph. Especially when the couple happens to be two of the most genuine, fun and in love people I've ever met. "Sandra and Bruno are so flippin perfect for each other". 

  Their wedding was taken place at Key Largo Lighthouse weddings and events. From start to finish the day was smothered in good vibes and beautiful moments. The type of celebration that made me smile the entire time while I looked back on their wedding photos.

Jennifer and Travis are two of the nicest human beings I know. Everyone loves them ! And for good reason.. they're two different souls that beat as one. Jennifer has such a fun, spontaneous and crazy personality and Travis is completely the opposite. You know what they say, opposites attract and here is a great example. Jennifer and Travis had their dream wedding at The Addison in Boca Raton, Fl

Michelle and Wayne's Engagement session

Michelle and Wayne's blue sky engagement session took place in Jupiter, Florida.  After adventuring around Dubois park and getting this couple to relax, I captured some of the sweetest and most genuine moments between them. Needless to say, I am excited and looking forward to capturing more intimate moments of this couple.

Congrats to Michelle and Wayne who tie the knot this coming November at Sail Fish Marina West Palm Beach, Florida

Mr & Mrs Richey Wedding

Can you tell this bridal party was a good time?  These boys made me laugh throughout the day, such a great group. I cannot say enough great things about Mr & Mrs Richey what a sweet and kind couple. The wedding was taken place at the beautiful location of Key Largo Lighthouse weddings and events. Nothing like an intimate wedding with  friends and family.

Steve & Adriana

There is something special about a wedding that takes place in Downtown West Palm Beach, fun is an understatement. The groomsmen were a hoot, they were down for anything including a little football in the middle of Downtown!! The wedding ceremony took place at Saint Ann Church, the reception was supposed to take place at Roxy's Rooftop but due to the weather it was moved to the Wine Dive. Despite bad weather and having to change locations last minute, everything worked out, Steve and Adriana had a wonderful wedding day.

Mr & Mrs Galera

I got to know Stephen and Yanesy during their engagement session at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, FL. Their engagement session was the perfect blend of good old fun and a genuinely happy couple. In the beginning Stephen was shy but by the end of the day I could tell he was feeling more comfortable with me. Their wedding took place at the elegant Benvenuto in Boynton Beach, FL. I absolutely loved spending the day with Stephen and Yanesy's family as they were so welcoming like a typical Cuban family!
