— In the midst of the Florida sun, a bride-to-be is in the midst on a photo shoot.
She’s wearing a wedding dress and a white bow tie.
It’s not a glamorous photo.
But the bride-in-waiting has a vision and a passion for capturing the moments she sees.
It may be for the benefit of her groom, her husband or even her family.
For more than 20 years, photographer Sara Gavino has been capturing the intimate moments of weddings across the state.
For the past three years, she’s been capturing Sarasota’s weddings for Sarasota Wedding Photography.
Gavini is one of more than 1,200 Sarasota-area photographers who are registered to work in the wedding industry.
Her career is largely centered on weddings.
For years, Gavani has been shooting weddings for weddings photographers.
Her passion for weddings is the reason she has a passion in photography.
But Gavinis story goes deeper than her work for weddings.
It also has something to do with her love for photography.
She started photographing weddings in 1992, when she was still a student at Central Florida Community College in Miami.
It was a chance to try something new and it was a good time.
But in 1998, she left college to pursue a career as a wedding photographer.
In the years since, Gaviino has traveled to weddings in more than 100 countries and regions across the globe.
She has photographed the weddings of celebrities, royalty, sports figures, celebrities in need of help, people in need and others in need.
“The main thing I have is passion,” she said.
“I have a desire to be the best photographer possible and to be able to tell a story.”
Her passion, she said, has led her to the wedding business.
For Gaviani, it was the beginning of a journey.
For many years, the Sarasota area was known for its nightlife.
But then, the late 1980s and early 1990s ushered in a new wave of nightlife in the Sarasas area.
It wasn’t just people who were nightlife-oriented.
People from all walks of life were turning up to the area to have fun.
But not everyone had that kind of fun.
“People were coming out to celebrate,” Gavrios mother, Donna, said.
Donna said she had been to weddings for 30 years.
She said she knew it was going to be a good one.
“We were going to have a great night, but it would be really good to have the wedding reception at the beach,” Donna said.
As the years went on, more and more people moved to Sarasota.
People started to move to the city, and people moved from Florida to Sarasas.
But many Sarasota residents remained, even if they weren’t nightlife people.
For Donna, that meant the wedding photographers who had been living in the city for years had to start a new job to survive.
She began working as a photographer in 1989, and she’s since worked in every state in the country.
Gaviiani said the biggest challenge of her job is keeping up with the demand for weddings in the area.
“Every year we see a wedding in the news,” Gaviianis mother said.
She also said that the demand has only increased since Sarasota has become a major wedding destination.
“In the early days, it wasn’t the number of people coming out that was going so hard.
But now we see the number more people coming,” Donna Gavili said.
It is difficult for some people, like Donna, to work, but Gaviiani said she’s never felt more valued as a businesswoman.
She works hard to keep up with demand.
She says she tries to work 24/7, and is willing to take on additional clients if needed.
Gaviaiani says her family, friends and clients have appreciated her work.
She was even a guest at a wedding ceremony, and her work is featured on television and in newspapers around the world.
“It is something that is always a joy for me, just being in the business,” Gaviaini said.
GAviani has taken a photo of a wedding that will be in the future, and has even made plans to document weddings in her own hometown.
“There are so many people out there who want to get married,” she explained.
“A lot of people don’t have a clue about weddings, and a lot of them have no idea how to do it.
It can be intimidating.
I’m not sure how people would like to come out to a wedding and have the first kiss.”
Gavianais mother says that her son has a big future in the industry, but she’s proud of the work she does for Sarasots wedding photographers.
“As long as I am in Sarasota and I have a passion, I’ll continue to be here,” Gavaianis mom said.
For now, Gaviainis son has
