Karly + Brandon, a wedding at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort

This was a beautiful and intimate wedding I photographed last week.  Karly and Brandon tied the knot on Cove Beach at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa.  And before they jumped onto the Sanibel Princess Cruise for their reception, we were able to go to some of my favorite spots on the property for some great bridal portraits!

Here’s just a sneak peek of their day….

Dana + Chris, a Wedding at The Plantation Golf and Country Club

Here’s a little sneak peek of Chris and Dana’s wedding that took place at the Plantation Golf and Country Club.  Dana had expressed their desires for a fun day, a true celebration.  They opted for a First Look and saw each other before the ceremony.

I don’t think this February day could have been any more beautiful with such an amazing couple, their bridal party and all their family and friends!  And I absolutely love the backdrops The Plantation provides…

Carissa + John, a wedding in Naples, Florida

This was a special wedding for me to kick off my first wedding of 2014!  Our lovely friends, Carissa and John, got married last week at The Quarry in Naples, Florida.  Even though it ended up being a bit wet and rainy, it was still such a beautiful day.  They got married under the breezeway overlooking palm trees and water.  You have to love those fantastic Naples landscapes.

Congratulations Carissa and John, so excited for you two!

Here’s a little sneak peek…

Christie + Randy, Outside Engagement Portraits

I’m excited to show off these engagement portraits we took last month at Koreshan State Park in Estero.  Love how they turned out!  Beautiful day, beautiful location, and beautiful couple!

I’ve enjoyed getting to know Christie and Randy, how they met and especially loved their engagement story (which included an elaborate day long scavenger hunt, Christie’s best friend flying down and of course a “yes”!).  I’m positive their wedding day will be very special.  Can’t wait for their big day!

Family Beach Portraits, Sanibel Island

So maybe 6 years ago I photographed my friends, Chris and Kim, at the beach, just the two of them (first photo below).  And here we are again, back at the beach plus two very adorable little girls!  It’s fun to see how much can change…even just looking back over this year.  Speaking of, where on earth did 2013 go?!

Just before Christmas we headed out to Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel Island for a sunset photoshoot.  These two little girls kept me laughing and having such a great time.  While one little girl is much more dainty and delicate, not really interested in getting sandy, wet or dirty…the younger sister didn’t mind getting soaked and even trying a bite or two of sand!  Such cute little girls!

Happy New Year!  I’m excited for 2014 and what it has in store (traveling???!)!

Natalie + Kevin, Sanibel Harbour Wedding

Here’s a little sneak peek of Natalie and Kevin’s wedding at Sanibel Harbour Resort.  I looooove November weddings because the weather is perfect and not too humid (finally!!).  This wedding was no exception, lovely poolside ceremony with a cool breeze coming off the gulf…you just can’t beat a Southwest Florida wedding. 😉

Congratulations Natalie and Kevin!!! I enjoyed every bit of your special day and can’t wait to show you more wedding images!

Emmie, Maternity + Newborn Portraits

A big congratulations to Valerie and Greg on their new baby girl!

We roughed the humidity (and noseeums!) at Lighthouse Beach for some maternity portraits and wound up with a gorgeous sunset.  Then a couple months later we did Emmie’s newborn session at my studio.  What a perfect baby girl, such a great model already!  So precious!
