Kind blog visitors, please accept my sincerest apologies for neglecting you so! It’s not that I don’t love to blog about the great town I live in or my wonderful girls or my fabulous brides and grooms, it’s that I haven’t found the right tactic to squeeze out more than 24 hours in a day and I still need at least 4 of those to sleep!

So it’s with great pleasure that I bring part 1 of one a day that can be described as fun, sincere, emotional, stylish, perfect, inspirational and simply put, a darn good day!

Aside from having the incredibly easy task of photographing Annemarie, (a woman whose beauty is only rivaled by how sweet and sincere she treats you) we had the perfect backdrop: La Playa Beach and Golf Resort here in Naples! Add to that the most handsomest groom ever, an entourage of the best wedding professionals in Southwest Florida and a family that knows how to throw a party and you have a destination-wedding made in Naples-heaven (yep, Annemarie and Brian came all the way from Europe to celebrate here)!

We caught so many great moments from Annemarie and Brian’s wedding that we are dividing their post into two parts. Look for the second part early next week!

Congratulations to Annemarie and Brian! We had such a wonderful time with both of you, thanks for letting us be a part of it!

The beautiful colors Annemarie selected for her wedding literally POP on the beach….this palette works anytime of the year and really makes a bold and elegant statement.

There was a lot of wind that day, but I LOVE wind. It makes for dramatic, moody and sensual images!



Champagne and love, the perfect end to a Naples beach wedding!
