The Renaissance Tampa International Plaza is one of the most convenient venues, being near Tampa International Airport, and located at Tampa's largest mall. As a Tampa wedding photographer, we love the mediterranean architecture. This ceremony was in the Ballroom Foyer and the reception in the grand Costa Del Sol Ballroom, which can seat guests up to 500. There are also many great areas on property for wedding photography. The La Fuente Courtyard has a beautiful mosaic-tiled fountain, and at night times lights up with some pretty colors as you see on the end of this video. Outside the front entrance of the hotel, there are some great areas for photos as well with sea oates, greenery, and the corral color of the building makes for great backgrounds.
We used for cameras for the ceremony in the Ballroom Foyer, with 200 guests it was pretty full so we had a very tight fit with 4 video cameras. Up front we used a Canon 70d with a f4 24-105mm lense and a Canon 7d with a Sigma f1.8 18-35mm lense. In the back we used a Canon 5d mark 3 with a f4 70-200mm lense. We also put a Canon xf-300 on the side in the 3rd row. It was very challenging with the draping up front which cover parts of the bride and groom, so we had to have a couple of cameras up front.
For the music we used a combination of 4 royalty free songs, wanting to create a soundtrack with a mixture of R&B and Jazz, using music from Triple Scoop Music and Envato's Audio Jingle.
