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:


On the way …


Waiting on his bride to come through those far doors:


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!

Kate and John decided to see each other before the ceremony :

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:


Time for Dad to walk Kate down the aisle :

Let the celebration begin!

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