So it's the end of the year almost, and the weather is cooling, Halloween has passed, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the holidays are peeking. Thinking back to the beginning of the year and Rene and I were wondering which wedding we wanted to feature. After featuring Laila's bridals, we had to follow up with her wedding. I met Laila through another bride
We had such a wonderful time at the bridal show in the Beach Club this past Sunday. Not only did we get to meet some wonderful brides, but we also got to mingle with some of the best Southwest Florida wedding vendors around! When we arrived to set up, we were uber-happy to see that we were neighbors with Kevin, from Botanicals on the Gulf.
Can't wait for The Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club's Naples Sunset Wedding Show! There is going to be a mad collection of fabulous Southwest Florida wedding pros, us included!

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!

And with great friends and family surrounding them that day, it was really a beautiful day! And what's more, Kristi graduated with an event planning degree and guess
When Rene and I first met with Jay and Crystal, we all knew right off the bat that we were a good match the four of us. Jay and Crystal wanted a different, edgy, gritty and urban approach to their wedding photography and that's really what we love to deliver. And yes, you can get that look here in Naples.....you just have to know where
We had some super news this morning.....after loading up on coffee we sat down to check our email and the results for ISPWP's summer contest were in! Nicole's awesome gown, shot at the beautiful Grandezza, took home first place in the Wedding Gown category! Judge's comments: "Great use of window light and flare". And yep.
