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…

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!

Tabitha + Bill, Estero Wedding

Just a quick little sneak peek of Tabitha and Bill’s wedding last weekend!  They got married at the West Bay Club in Estero.  Tabitha was so creative with all the little details of her wedding, it truly made the day unique and memorable!  (I really loved her bouquet and her dress, gorgeous!)

Congratulations Tabitha and Bill!!! More to come soon! 🙂

Angi + Matt, Diamondhead Beach Resort Wedding

I was just at Diamondhead this past weekend for another wedding, which reminded me I still needed to get these photos up here from Angi and Matt’s wedding.  I serious love this resort…such a perfect location on Fort Myers Beach for a wedding!

Angi and Matt had a church ceremony and their reception at Diamondhead.  We did all their before and after photos at the resort.  I feel so spoiled at times because I get to enjoy so many amazing sunsets on the beach, and there was no exception with this wedding!

Congratulations Angi and Matt!

Lauren + Michael, Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa

Loved this wedding!  It was such a fun group and they make my job easy to just capture the day as it unfolded.  I’m currently finishing up their wedding album which reminded me to hurry up and get these images up here.

Congratulations Lauren & Michael!  🙂

Sarah + Brandon, Downtown Fort Myers Wedding

Finally getting a full blog up on a wedding instead of just a sneak peek!  And I just had to get this one up here…beautiful couple, beautiful day!

Sarah and Brandon tied the knot at The Edison Restaurant.  I have never photographed a wedding at this location before, but definitely hope I do again!   I loved the atmosphere, old Fort Myers feel mixed with Thomas Edison memorabilia.  And then you add in TR Designs who did a fabulous job on the decorations and wedding planning.   If you know me, you know I am a sucker for feathers and Todd used lots!  Swoon! 🙂

The ceremony was outside on the Terrace with a lovely view of the golf course.  The reception was in the Edison Room, complete with dark hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings.  And after a day time reception, we took the happy couple to downtown Fort Myers to take a few more shots.  Sarah has such a beautiful smile and I find it completely contagious.  She is always happy, upbeat and smiling and I am so happy that Brandon snatched her up!  So cheers to both, congratulations!
