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! 🙂

Monica + Tyler, White Orchid at Oasis, Fort Myers Wedding

It has been a crazy few weeks of all shooting and no blogging!  Phew!

This wedding I’m definitely partial to since I had my own wedding at the White Orchid.  Such a beautiful setting, an old historic home on the river with tons of different photo ops! 😉  So here is a little sneak peek of Monica and Tyler’s gorgeous wedding.

Congratulations…you two had such a fabulous wedding and I’m excited to share the rest of your wedding photography with you soon!

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!

Downtown Fort Myers Family Portraits

And once again…I’m a little late on posting these portraits.  :-/  I enjoyed meeting this family very much.  Both the parents work in creative fields which made it really fun knowing they had a creative eye too.   In fact, Gretchen is an amazing painter..check her out: http://www.pawpalettes.com/home .

As I was looking through these I realized one of the locations is no more.  The new restaurant, Firestone, has painted the brick wall.  Crazy how downtown Fort Myers keeps changing, but it really looks great!

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. 😉

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! 😉

Rhiannon + Ron, Veranda Restaurant Wedding

Rhiannon and Ron picked the Veranda restaurant in downtown Fort Myers for their ceremony and reception.  It’s a beautiful location with a brick courtyard, romantic lighting, lush greenery…and close to the water where we were able to run snap a few photos.  I highly recommend wherever you pick for your wedding, utilize that area!  Filter in enough time for your photos so you aren’t rushed and can get a variety of locations, lighting, poses, etc.!

And to the newlyweds, Rhiannon and Ron – I was so thrilled to be your photographer and share your wedding day with you!  You both are such fun-loving people and I wish you all the best! Cheers!

Ashley + Bill, engagement portraits

Ashley and Bill are getting married this Saturday and I was thrilled that we were able to squeeze in their engagement portraits last week.  I always recommend doing engagement portraits because it is a great warm up before the wedding photos.  Plus you have some beautiful photos to display at your reception.  Ashley and Bill – I will see you Saturday!!!
