While photographing Ginny & Cameron’s wedding at the Edison & Ford Estates in Fort Myers Florida we made a little movie. We call it: foto video. In between taking our usual photos, we take lots of extra shots with this project in mind, and later compress the thousands of images into a fun little digital flip book of sorts. To read more about this concept, head over to our foto video page. Don’t forget to check out the Edison & Fort Estates blog.
We managed to squeeze in an engagement session before it poured this morning. Our location of choice, the 3rd Street area in Old Naples, continues to be one of our favorite spots. Jen and Justin will be married early next month at LaPlaya, and we’re so excited for them!
We photographed Katie and JD’s wedding at The Inn on Fifth just yesterday, and we can’t resist sharing a snippet. We’ll post more soon of their two ceremonies and their rooftop reception.
Ginny and Cameron were married in the lush, tropical setting of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. We love shooting weddings for couples that are so obviously head over heels for each other. Those two keep each other smiling all the time! Their whole wedding party was so easygoing to boot. The ceremony took place overlooking the water at the Edison & Ford Estates. Afterwards, the group had the property to themselves to roam around for photos. And there is no shortage of photos ops at that place! An old Model T carried Ginny and Cameron to their reception at The Edison Restaurant. Between Ginny and her father’s hilarious choreographed dance and the usual fotobooth antics, I’d say everyone had a great time.
We also toyed with our foto video concept throughout the day. Check back soon to see what we put together!
We love the contrasting scenes of girls getting ready vs. guys getting ready. The bridesmaids had hair and makeup done in pink satin robes, while the bride of course was in white. The guys, on the other hand, were a little more casual. (I think they went jet skiing that morning.)
Karl and I recently teamed up with some amazing local vendors to put together a bridal shoot at the Burroughs Home, one of Fort Myers’ oldest residences. We’re excited to share the results of our collaboration with you! Our lovely model Jessica was dolled-up by the talented David Frohmberg of Salon International (at the Naples Bay Resort.) David knows how to bring on the gorgeousness, and he’s just so sweet. The lush bouquet and flowers for the bride’s hair were donated by Grace Lakes Florist. And how about that dress? The texture of the blooms are so pretty, especially in person. Her to-die-for floral wedding dress and veil are from Loretta Bridal Boutique. The shoot took place on a picture perfect sunny day, but the light-filled rooms inside the house were just as appealing as the pretty grounds. For something a little different than the beach, the Burroughs Home is the perfect venue for a wedding, brimming with southern charm and antique furniture. Thanks so much to all who put their energy and resources into this shoot!
