Destination Wedding Photographer


Based in St Augustine, FL

They’re more than photographs, each moment tells your story.

It’s why you aren’t using a kid with an iPhone for your wedding photography.

Your entire wedding is filled with once-in-a-lifetime moments that you might otherwise forget – it’s a busy day. A good photo creates instant nostalgia; it brings you back into a moment, tells the story behind it and keeps those moments safe. To do that, you need to feel comfortable enough to be in the moment without worry to create authentic memories.

And that is where I come in, when I’m your wedding photographer – you can be in the moment without worry.

I’ll handle the creative & candid photography, you just be you.

About St Augustine Wedding Photographer: Roy Serafin

I’m Roy and I’m excited you’re here.

I’m a destination wedding photographer based in St Augustine, Florida.

With over eight years as a wedding photographer traveling the world, I decided it was time to leave Chicago and make Florida home in early 2022.

St Augustine’s got it all for me — from the historic architecture and the thriving creative community, to exploring the nearby coasts, it’s a place that instantly felt like home.

You might wonder, why I chose weddings. The answer is pretty simple: it’s an honor to give people back memories they might otherwise forget. I’m able to learn what matters more than anything to two people and use that information to tell their story for them. When memories fade, these photographs will be there to jump them back into the moment.

When I am your St Augustine wedding photographer, you will not have to worry about missing important moments.

More about Destination wedding photographer, Roy Serafin


I photograph fun, laid-back, and travel obsessed couples.

My work is heavily inspired by films and being present in the moment. These are a few of my favorite photographs from weddings in St Augustine and destination weddings around the world.

Photography style

Behind the scenes

Cinematic wedding photography is when the images from your wedding day look like stills from a movie – you just happen to be starring in it. The images are highly composed & artistic – but incorporate photojournalistic candids as much as possible.

I believe in candid storytelling, which means I do not want you to hold back. This is the time in your life when you embrace the inside jokes, make your partner feel important, and show off real emotion. To do this I intentionally position you and then prompt you with deep or funny questions. If you get the urge to pop champagne, play a prank or pet a dog at the first dance… Just do it.

Every photograph of your wedding day should bring you right back into the moment they happened, so make it count.

Why I became a destination wedding photographer in St Augustine, Fl

Why work with me?

There’s no judgment here.

If that means the Imperial march down the aisle, skipping a tradition, or jumping in the pool at reception, I’m here to support it and document it!

Real is better than perfect.

Genuine laughter, emotion, and connection will be what you want to remember in 20 years, not awkward poses for the internet.

There’s no redo button.

Every moment is once in a lifetime and your wedding will be treated that way. The things you care about, won’t be forgotten.

Frequently Asked Questions

Stuff you should know.


Absolutely. As a matter of fact, I have decided to include travel inside of the continetal us in all my wedding packages.


I would say as soon as you know you’re interested. Most couples book 10-12 months in advance, but it’s not uncommon for a couple to book 2 years out.


Yes, I have a backup for everything. Lenses, cameras, and even memory cards are always protected. I even have a backup photographer for myself just in case.

Can you photograph Disney Weddings?

Like most Florida wedding photographers, I love photographing Disney weddings. Who doesn’t like to follow a ceremony with Guardians of the Galaxy in Epcot?


I deliver the final edited photos within 10 weeks after the wedding day. However, I always deliver a few sneak peeks to you within two days!


Yes, I’m fully insured. This protects my equipment and also gives peace of mind to venues and couples.

St Augustine Elopement Photography

There are tons of terms for small weddings: elopement, intimate wedding, micro wedding— and probably five or six other terms I’m forgetting. While I do mainly photograph weddings based in Orlando, I also love working with small elopements, and destination weddings across the state of Florida and around the world.
