Jianna + Matt | Engagement Portraits

This couple made my job easy! Not only are they so incredible sweet together, they look like Barbie and Ken, but they were super comfortable posing in front of the camera for their engagement shoot.

I photographed them last month when I was back in Florida. We covered a lot of grounds in the River District of Fort Myers, FL capturing their engagement pictures.  And we lucked out with some awesome natural lighting, thank you clouds! 🙂

It was hard to narrow down my favorites engagement photos to put up here, so warning..there’s a lot!

Congratulations, Jianna and Matt…looking forward to your wedding day! 🙂

Christie + Randy | Fort Myers Wedding

I don’t think this couple could be any sweeter!  I thoroughly enjoyed spending the entire day with them all the while photographing each beautiful moment of their wedding.

Christie and Randy had a lovely ceremony at their local church, then headed to the River District (downtown Fort Myers) for their reception at Legacy Harbour. 

Here’s a quick little sneak peek of their day….

Amanda + Anthony, River District Engagement Session

We took a little break from beach sessions to capture Amanda and Anthony’s engagement portraits in downtown Fort Myers.  I just love how versatile the River District can be.  And this smoking hot couple was a blast to work with…so photogenic and easy-going!

Congratulations Amanda and Anthony…your upcoming wedding(s) are going to be amazing, I’m positive of that. 🙂  Cheers!

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!

Sarah + Brandon, Fort Myers Wedding

Sarah and Brandon have tied the knot!  And what a beautiful wedding it was at The Edison Restaurant.  There are more photos to come, but wanted to get a little peek up here especially since the holiday craziness has started and I haven’t had time to blog much.

Congratulations Sarah and Brandon!

Senior Fun in the River District!

Senior season is in full swing!  We took Samantha’s portraits a little while back and what a perfect model with an amazing smile (I’m super envious of her dimple!!).  We covered a good bit of downtown Fort Myers, which always makes for a great backdrop.  And I even convinced her to pick a dance pose in the middle of the street, such a great sport. 😉

Beautiful Bouquets {White Orchid Florals}

I have to give a shout out to Mindy with White Orchid Florals, I love her work!  She did all the flowers for my wedding.  When I met with her, I remember listing all the things I wanted…black feathers, peacock feathers, white flowers, brooches, damask material, etc.  I love details and probably too many elements, but she did such an amazing job and made it look so amazing!  We had a photoshoot last week, so we got to use a couple more of her beautiful bouquets (thank you Mindy!).  The first couple photos are of my bouquet, and yes I did have my camera handy at my wedding 🙂

My kitty stopped to smell the roses 🙂 …

My hubby photographed this last one, his private photograph lessons with me are paying off! 😉

Stefanie + Keith, Country Church and Veranda Restaurant

I’m soooo excited to finally get to share the images from Stefanie and Keith’s wedding.  I actually shot this wedding back in November, but since I got married that month and then there was the holidays and then life kept getting crazier…well, I just haven’t gotten it up!  This was such a unique wedding, it was an intimate affair that took place at a small country chapel in Alva.  The church happened to be next to the old Alva Library, now museum, which made for a great backdrop (especially since this couple loves books!).  After the beautiful ceremony, the reception took place at the Veranda Restaurant in downtown Fort Myers.  All the florals were done by Fort Myers Express Floral and they were gorgeous!  Congratulations Stefanie and Keith!!!

Rachel + Willie, River District fun!

Here’s Rachel and Willie…or should I say Barbie and Ken? Such a beautiful couple, we had so much fun in downtown Fort Myers capturing these images. I loved the props Rachel brought too…since her husband is a baseball player it seemed appropriate to include some baseball gloves and ball.  And the frame with there special dates…I love this idea whether you include it in a photo or not!  She told me she saw the idea on Pinterest. Mind you I have been holding out for a long time on not joining Pinterest only because everyone tells me that they spend hours on there…I don’t have hours to do that!  But when Rachel told me that, it happened to be my 3rd photoshoot in a row where a client told me that they saw this idea on Pinterest…so I joined and have been losing track of time ever since 😉
Enjoy!

Jacki + Jeff, River District Lifestyle Shoot

Here’s to a week all about LOVE! All of my photoshoots this week have been couples – ranging from boyfriend/girlfriend, engaged, married for 8+ years and married for 50 years (awesome!).  I thought it was fitting that they all happened to have their sittings the week of Valentine’s Day.  And in between shoots, I finished up this gorgeous couples print order and once again realized I haven’t posted any from their sitting (not surprising, right?! Haha, I’m trying to blog more!).

Anyway…here they are! Such an awesome couple, and I’m totally jealous of her super-sweet southern accent (would it be weird if I tried out a southern accent?!)!

Starting off with my favorite 🙂
And ending on one of my favorites…I love it when the man can make her smile! 😉
