Kate & John | Ritz Carlton Naples Wedding
This past weekend I had the honor to shoot a lovely beach wedding in Naples, Florida. I was the second shooter with the fabulous Rachel Durik of Savor Photography.
What made this wedding so lovely was not only the setting, but the people. I have never met such a kind & welcoming family, and this was the first time I had met them! Smiles all around.
I started my day photographing the men getting ready. They were real sports from the minute I knocked on the door, and true gentlemen.
John received pre-ceremony gifts from Kate:
The men were fun to photograph, and made my job very easy:

Many couples choose to do a ‘first look’, where they see each other before the ceremony. Not only is it a special intimate moment to experience, but it also allows a couple to take some of the formal pictures before the ceremony, making time to attend the cocktail hour!

We walked to another location for more pictures:
Simply stunning bride!
It was truly a perfect day for a beach wedding. Here’s one I snapped before the guests arrived:

Truly an honor to be a part of your magnificent day – Congratulations!
