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! 🙂

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!

Natalie + Walter, Sanibel Wedding

Here’s just a sneak peek of Natalie and Walter’s wedding at Sanibel Harbour Resort.  They tied the knot at sunset aboard the Sanibel Princess.  Such a gorgeous couple and despite a little rain we still were able to get a variety of outdoor wedding photos around the property and at sunset on the boat! 🙂

Congratulations Natalie and Walter!!!

Leann + Jeremy, Shell Point Wedding

It’s July 15!  And I haven’t blogged anything in a while, yikes!  Usually my summers are a great time to catch up, but not this one. 😉

Leann and Jeremy’s beautiful wedding was last month.  They tied the knot at The Village Church at Shell Point.  Shell Point has such gorgeous scenic views…great place for photographs. 🙂

This wedding was an extra special one for me, I’ve known both Leann and Jeremy since high school and it was awesome seeing these two get married!  Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness (and lots of kids??! just teasing!) for you both!

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!  🙂

Jenny, senior portraits

It is graduation season!  And as we are gearing up for the summer of photographing the next year’s class graduates, we’re also finishing orders and books for this year’s seniors.  We did Jenny’s photos on Sanibel Island, a beautiful beach session.  She brought along a variety of great outfits, from casual cowboy hat to prom dress.  Loved it!  We also lucked out with a pretty amazing sunset!  Congratulations Jenny!

Beach Vacation Family Portraits, South Seas

Melissa called me to let me know her family was going to be on vacation at South Seas Resort on Capitva Island.  She wanted to get some family portraits taken while they were there.  We planned an early morning shoot there on the beach and what a gorgeous morning! The kids had fun walking around the beach, exploring, looking for shells and dodging waves! I absolutely love being at the beach and I’m rarely there early in the morning, so this was fun to play with sunrise and early morning lighting in addition to photographing such a lovely family! As you plan your family holiday portraits, and your nights and weekends get filled up, consider an early morning shoot…most young children are at their best early in the morning and there are plenty of great locations for sunrise lighting!

One more thing! If you’re not coming to SWFL anytime soon for vacation, why not come on vacation with us?  We have a few working vacations coming up – we will be in the Cleveland, Ohio area the week of December 13 (great oportunity for snowy winter portraits or cozy fireplace photos!) and then we’ll be in San Fransisco in late April of 2011 (San Fran, Napa and Monterray areas).   Contact us for more details and to book your sitting!
