These two! We seriously laughed during their whole engagement session. It was one of those sessions where I left re-energized and in even more in love with this photographer life. Here are a few favorites from our session.

There’s no better way then to end a session with this 🙂

Styled Shoot: Boho Wedding Session

Bride and Groom, Fort Myers photographer, Fort myers wedding photographer, Photography thoughts, Southwest Florida Weddings, Weddings. Photography.

Let me start off my saying, I’ve been dreaming about putting together a styled shoot for a long time. I had the most special team come together to make this happen, and I must first start off by thanking them from the very depths of my heart for putting time and energy (and driving) into this! Maicie and Cody, thank you for being so wonderful to drive down from Tampa to be my models (and make shooting this so darn easy)! Tyler at Epic Salon and Suites  and Lauren Gomez, your hair and make-up skills are incredible, keep slaying it. Eddie (Five Oh Films), thank you for being my long-time creative genius, video friend. You are always so encouraging and I know the Behind the Scenes video will be nothing short of amazing. Thank you Tie the Knot Bridal Couture shop for allowing me to photograph a stunning dress. And Devon, for  allowing us (last minute due to a really ugly rain forecast) to use the Sydney & Berne Davis Art Center in Downtown Fort Myers. While most of the session had to be shot indoors due to heavy rain, at the very end we were able to sneak out for a few lovely shots in the rain.

It’s no secret that I have been fortunate to photograph all of this families big events- and this one was no exception! Little Reid is 6 months old and boy was he fun to capture on camera. He’s got a wonderful little personality!

Time seems to be flying by. A year ago I got to meet baby Madison for the first time. And now we are celebrating her turning one! Wow! She’s adorable, funny, and has the best smile!

Happy birthday sweet, little one.

Last Saturday I witnessed the ceremony uniting Katie and Rick as husband and wife. As soon as I arrived I knew it was going to be a special wedding. Katie has a way of making everyone feel so welcomed! And Rick is just a great guy. Together, they are perfect. Wishing you all the happiness you can possibly handle!

Robert and Colleen-Engagement in Roanoke, Va.

Bride and Groom, family portraits. photography, Photography thoughts, Southwest Florida Weddings, Weddings. Photography.

She knew most of his family before she met him, but when Colleen and Robert finally did meet they began a friendship that would turn into something more. I will let these photos speak for themselves; it is clear that they love laughing together and they are incredibly happy.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Colleen and Robert in such a beautiful setting like Carvins Cove.  This shoot left me wanting more mountains and I’m hoping to go back again soon for more shoots and weddings!

We may have gone back another day to take more pictures there with my kiddos 🙂 I hope you enjoy a few more photos from their engagement session in the mountains. A special thanks to our best friends that helped find this location, due to us not being locals. xoxo
