Lyndsey + Samuel, Florida Wedding

I was back in Southwest Florida earlier this month for this gorgeous fall wedding!  Had to take a quick break from editing the wedding photos to post a little sneak peek. 😉  This couple was too sweet, loved every minute of their special day.

Here’s a few…

Jill + Craig | Outdoor Wedding | Wedding Photographer

I just got back from Florida, photographing Jill and Craig’s beach wedding at Sanibel Harbour.  March weddings in Florida at the beach = perfection!  🙂 LOVE this time of year!  The icing on the cake for me was this super sweet couple.  From day one they have been wonderful to work with and get to know.  On their wedding day, they were so relaxed and went with the flow on everything, which in turn made their day nice (no stress! or at least I saw none! 😉 ).

So here is a little sneak peek of their beach wedding day…enjoy!

Congratulations Jill and Craig!  I enjoyed photographing your beautiful outdoor wedding…the rest of your photos are coming soon!

Lori + Christopher, Sanibel Harbour

Lori and Christopher were such an amazing couple to work with on their big day!  They totally just went with whatever the day brought them.  For example, in the middle of all the pre-ceremony photos we heard the rain getting closer, so they just decided to do the ceremony ASAP!  Which was perfect because we dodged the rain. Phew! 🙂

Here is a little sneak peek of their beautiful day…

Tara + Glen, Fort Myers Beach Wedding

I was so excited to see this beautiful couple again!  I met them a couple years ago while they were on vacation, they weren’t engaged yet but they told me they’d be back down to Florida to have a beach wedding one day.  And they did! 🙂  They had a beautiful, sunny beach ceremony at the Pink Shell Resort on Fort Myers Beach.

Here’s just a few wedding photos from their day…seriously love Tara’s veil and bouquet, so unique!  😉

Julia + Michael, a Sanibel Wedding

Julia and Michael were the sweetest couple!  I so enjoyed getting to know Julia over the phone and was excited to finally meet her in person.  It was a destination wedding for them.  They had a lovely, intimate wedding with their close friends and family on Cove Beach at Sanibel Harbour Resort and Spa.

So here is a little sneak peek of their wedding with more photos to come! 🙂

Ada + Jonas, a Wedding at Sanibel Harbour Resort

I’m taking a brief intermission from editing to get this lovely couple’s sneak peek up here…

I thoroughly enjoyed photographing Jonas and Ada’s wedding.  They came all the way from Norway to have a beautiful beach wedding here in Southwest Florida.  It was fun to see all their traditions with a little Florida feel to it!  I’m totally sold on visiting Norway now!  No surprise there though (must travel MORE!).

Here’s a few of my favorites…

Tricia + Kris, Sanibel Harbour Wedding

We are currently enjoying PERFECT beach wedding weather here in Southwest Florida!  Tricia and Kris had their ceremony on the Cove Beach at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa with their reception immediately following in the Island Room.

It was such a fun and romantic wedding for this beautiful couple from Minnesota.  Here’s a quick little sneak peek of their wedding day…

Natalie + Walter, a wedding at Sanibel Harbour

This wedding was so fun for me.  From my first conversation with Natalie, I was so thrilled with the emphasis she placed on her wedding photographs.  She wanted artistic wedding portraits and gave me free reign (yay!).  So as we planned out the day, we packed in plenty of time to cover all the stylish photos I had in mind.  Natalie and Walter were so easy to photograph, not only because they were so in love, but also because they were so comfortable in front of the camera and posed perfectly with ease. 🙂

I love all the unique details Natalie included.  Her gorgeous engagement ring, a ruby with diamonds (swoon!), was a family heirloom from her husband’s side.  Her couture dress….seriously wow (so beautiful!).  And above all they planned their day to be a beautiful celebration with their close family and friends, an intimate group that boarded the Sanibel Princess Cruise for a sunset ceremony and dinner.  They continued the festivities with cake and drinks at Charley’s Cabana Bar.

Congratulation Natalie and Walter!  I wish you both all the best! 🙂

Virginia + Jesse, a wedding at DiamondHead on Fort Myers Beach

Bright colors for a beach wedding = my favorite!  I love the color palette Virginia chose for her wedding, coral and teal…gorgeous!  Virginia and Jesse planned their destination wedding (for them!) to be at Diamondhead Beach Resort and Spa on Fort Myer Beach.  Great location, great staff and as always a perfect sunset over the water!

This first photo is one of my all-time favorites. 🙂

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…
