October 8th, 2010|Bridal Portrait Sessions, The Ritz Carlton - Naples|

I have to admit that I've longingly stared at beautiful bridal sessions from other photographers' whom I admire......wishing I could shoot a bridal session, living vicariously through their work!

Kirsti and Slade tied the knot at the lovely Hyatt Regency Coconut Point here in Bonita Springs, Florida. Kristi and Slade were not only SUPER easy to work with, but so much fun all the way around!

We are very happy to finally feature Sarah and Mike's wedding! With every bride and groom that we've photographed, there is always one or two special qualities that stand out to us and we can really see those qualities come to life in the images we make.
