Welcome to Popping Champaign Journal

A blog written by Zoe, Florida wedding photographer at Popping Champaign Photography


Hey there! We're thrilled to have you here. At Popping Champaign Photography, Damara and I have been fortunate enough to witness and capture the most enchanting weddings throughout Florida. We turn these cherished moments into pure art, preserving the essence of every celebration. As a bride myself, I've embarked on two extraordinary journeys—crafting an intimate, socially-distanced micro-wedding during the peak of Covid, followed by a joyous post-pandemic affair. These personal experiences have given me a deep appreciation for the beauty and challenges of being a bride!


Now, I've decided to pour my heart into writing journal entries that will help you navigate this new journey with ease. But that's not all—we want you to experience the luxury that comes with entrusting your special day to experienced wedding photographers like us. So, grab a glass of bubbly, get cozy, and join us as we explore our captivating wedding day journals. Along the way, I'll be sharing past magical moments in addition to valuable tips and advice we've picked up along our journey, tailored to elevate your luxury wedding experience to new heights. Let's embark on this celebration together, where love, artistry, and champagne are delicately intertwined. Cheers!
