Karly + Brandon, a wedding at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort

This was a beautiful and intimate wedding I photographed last week.  Karly and Brandon tied the knot on Cove Beach at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa.  And before they jumped onto the Sanibel Princess Cruise for their reception, we were able to go to some of my favorite spots on the property for some great bridal portraits!

Here’s just a sneak peek of their day….

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!  🙂

Back to the Beach, family portraits

This year has been so fun…and one big reason why is that I have had the opportunity to see so much growth in my dear sweet clients!  From beautiful couples tying the knot, to others having babies, to this gorgeous family and seeing their little ones grow a year older.  And now, even as I write this, I realize these two cutie pies are probably looking even older (I’m a little late on getting this blog post up, no surprise there!).

We’ve been able to join Gillian and her family on vacation on Captiva Island for two years in a row now to take some family portraits.  Always a pleasure and always fun!  Kids keep me laughing and really make my job fun.  🙂

Captiva Beach Family Photos

What a beautiful evening for beach photos at South Seas Resort.   I love it went it runs smooth and hard not to with such great subjects.  Ahhh… I love my job! 🙂  And on that note, just a little reminder…book now for your family holiday photos.  Weekends are scarce this time of year and our daylight is getting shorter and shorter!  But the weather is beautiful, got to love this time of year in Florida!  And Gillian – your family is precious!  I thoroughly enjoyed photographing your lovely family and meeting you all!  I look forward to next time!

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!
