Carrie and Brian were married at the Church of the Resurrection of Our Lord in Fort Myers, Florida and the reception was held at Pelican Preserve Golf and Country Club in Fort Myers, Florida…and it was such a beautiful and unique wedding. The bride and groom really put a lot of thought and effort into even the finest details of their day, right down to the reading of “I’ll Love You Forever” by the groom and his mom, to the bridal party entrance dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. (It was totally awesome!) They also chose a fabulous cupcake tier cake from Norman Love Confections…and they were so sweet in delicately helping each other take a bite. I was honored to be a part of their special, amazing day!
It was a beautiful day to celebrate 60 years of LOVE between two wonderful people!! Lynne and Norman are still head over heels for each other, even 60 years after they tied the knot. Come check out the love!!
Oh my goodness…what can I say? Kristina is a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart…we had a FABULOUS time shooting her model session! She is such a natural in front of the camera…makes my job look EASY!!
I love her smile!!!
Definitely a favorite. Isn’t she gorgeous?!
What a blissful day at Cape Harbour! (We also followed it up with a fantastic lunch at The Joint…you’ve gotta try their gourmet pizza!) Kristina was a great sport and did everything we asked her to…PERFECT model! We also had the wonderful assistance of our own Heidi Smith, who brought her eagle-eye for shots, set up props, and basically did SUCH an amazing job helping wherever it was needed. (She also came up with the idea to hold the session at Cape Harbour! I’d never been there before! Apparently RumRunners is AMAZING…next time, we’re eating THERE, too!)
I had SUCH a great time with Whitney and Jeremy in the picturesque cotton fields, dreamy riverbeds, changing autumn leaves, and amazing woods and ponds of Anson & Polkton, North Carolina! These two are so beautifully in love; it warmed my heart to capture their memories!
Not a care in the world but for each other…
I had a craving for a session with cowboy boots! Thankfully Whitney wears hers well!
Jessica & Neal are two people who are very near and dear to my heart…they have been in our lives for a number of years and we just love them to pieces. It was an intimate destination wedding…they moved to Cincinnati, Ohio and returned to their hometown of Polkton, North Carolina for the wedding…and it was breathtakingly beautiful there in autumn! See for yourself!
They didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony on the Big Day…so we did this “both sides of the door” photo instead! These two are so sweet!!
A wedding gift for the bride! Handmade; I love it!!
Jessica created this bouquet by hand, from brooches given to her from her family and friends, who had prayed over each one in blessing of Jessica and Neal’s marriage. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Oh my goodness…where do I start? Heidi and Kevin are an amazing couple who were just so awesome to work with. We shot their engagement session earlier in the year, and the wedding (so quickly!) snuck up on us in October 2011. The wedding was held at the DiamondHead Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach in Florida, and everything was elegant and pristinely beautiful!
It was a GORGEOUS day with this family! Little Miss Chloe is so completely adorable…she & Stacie & Jacob are just so much fun to work with! They all did anything I asked of them…which of course, we photographers just LOVE!!
Stacie & Jake are so cute together.
This one makes the top of the list, too…I just LOVE mother/daughter love. Beautiful girls!
Chloe is a pistol! She was such a huge help with getting her parents to stand exactly where they needed to be. 😉 And I even needed a little “help” with her up-and-coming photographer’s eye…she got to shoot a couple frames of her mom & dad!
It was a beautiful day at Buckingham Park, Florida with a wonderful family! 10/16/2011
