{ Mr. & Mrs. Stone } Estero Florida Wedding

It’s rare that you have the privilege of meeting such calm and easy going people like Lianet & Chevado. From the moment we met at their consult we clicked. Their wedding was beautiful, fun and full of life – laughter and smiles at every turn. Even during a torrential downpour during their vows nothing could shake their happiness. The reception was even better. I don’t know if I have enjoyed reception photos from any other wedding more than I enjoy these. I probably included way too many in this post but you can surely see how much fun everyone was having, simply carefree.

Pink Shell Resort | Fort Myers Beach Wedding

 

Everyone knows the phrase “less is more” but when it comes to weddings do people really practice it? Meet Jason and Dara who did just that and pulled off an awesome wedding in just three short months!

Insert super best friend Lindsay. Lindsay was the one to email me and set up the consultation. At first I was a little confused and taken back by this as it was something I never experienced.  Not only that but she was planning the wedding for just one month away! Most couples plan months, if not years in advance. Was this legit? Well thank goodness it was! I got the pleasure to finally meet Dara at our consult. Dara is a busy mom and spa owner and well, Lindsay is the best friend everyone wishes they had. She was Dara’s “right hand [wo]man!” Not only that but she played the role of officiant as well.

The wedding was simple yet elegant and beautiful. It was filled with the closest friends and family and all the focus was on Jason and Dara, as it should be. No frills. No fuss. Jason not only married Dara but he married her son as well and they became a family. They were originally going to marry in November but then they thought “Why wait?” Jason and Dara first met all the way back in third grade. It wasn’t until adulthood when Jason finally mustered up the guts to ask Dara out. And boy, is he glad he did.

 

 

{ Jake + Steph } Naples Engagement Photography

So after months of severe drought here in Florida, we honestly thought we might get some rain on the day of my engagement session with Jake and Steph. It was windy, cloudy and the skies were starting to look dark. The good thing about beach sessions and the threat of rain is that it usually scares away the crowd and if we are lucky we can get a pretty sunset along with it. Unfortunately the sky remained overcast but I personally love working with an overcast sky. The blue skies at twilight against bright colored clothing makes a really nice contrast.

Jake and Steph were the sweetest and so easy going. We had been talking for months over emails and it was so great to finally meet them! We started the session at 18th Ave which is actually where Jake proposed months ago. These two love birds are getting married up in Michigan next year. Sadly for me I will not be photographing it but I can imagine it will be STUNNING. I mean, these two alone are practically super models to begin with.
