Wedding - Sanibel Island Photographer

sanibel island sunset wedding casa ybel
I have been so lucky to have photographed events in more places than I can count, but my heart will always be on Sanibel Island. I fell in love with the islands the first time I drove down Periwinkle Way back in 1997. Since then the drive over the causeway and on to Periwinkle has been my commute as I've made my way to so many wonderful weddings and portraits.  From the timeless old Florida palms on the grounds of Casa Ybel to the elegance of the Sanctuary Golf Club, Sanibel Island is just everything weddings are made of.

Wedding Day Details - Sanibel Island Photographer

I have a sweet spot for wedding day robes... (and pretty much anything floral these days)... so when I saw Laura's girls all decked in these adorable little robes I about melted. Talk about a perfect look for the perfect location. Laura and her now hubby Brian tied the knot on Sanibel Island at the Casa Ybel Resort. The property (one of my favorite locations ever) is sprawling and covered with big old romantic palm trees and boats an amazing beach and beautiful blue Florida skies. Those green and blue colors were captured perfectly in Laura's wedding day robes. I'll definitely be sharing more of this ever so perfect Casa Ybel wedding soon so be sure and check back!!

Tent Wedding - Sanibel Island Photographer

Simple, elegant and so Sanibel. With the backdrop of the Thistle Lodge at Casa Ybel this clean, neutral colored, tent reception just oozed with elegance. I loved the combination of different flowers that Signature Florals used to create this lovely setting. I've worked with Sue and her team at Signature for years and I always love what they bring to a wedding day.

Le Mars, Iowa Wedding Photographer



le mars iowa wedding
I have had the great fortune of working with several couples from Le Mars, Iowa, so I've gotten to know the quaint little ice cream capital quite well! Like so many small towns, Le Mars has several hidden little gems and neat spots for capturing wedding pictures. It took me a trip or two and some hunting, but over the past couple years and now over a dozen Le Mars weddings, I've got a sweet little list of historic spots, rustic areas and my favorite little park too (Where Ashley and Justin shared this romantic moment!). So if you are planning your wedding for Le Mars, check out the Impressiosn Photography website www.impress-photo.com for some Le Mars wedding highlights and give me a ring. I would love to chat with you about all of the amazing things we can do all within a moment of one of my favorite little Iowa towns!

This dress! I can't stop gushing over Dede's BHLDN wedding dress. Simple perfection. Dede and Charlie were married at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island. Their destination wedding was nothing short of amazing. The two traveled from Connecticut to Florida with dozens of friends and family for their beautiful palm tree covered ceremony and tented reception.

Des Moines Wedding - Brazilian 2wins

There is currently a race to get married between my assistant and my second photographer, solely for the purpose of being the first of them to have this the Brazilian 2wins play at their wedding. Mind you, my assistant doesn't even have a significant other yet. So this is definitely a comical race, but if that doesn't say something about this incredible group, nothing does! We met the Brazilian 2wins at Cassandra and Dan's wedding at the Salisbury House in Des Moines, Iowa this fall. Their music is completely unique, absolutely entertaining and 100% fun. And (if you can't tell from the pictures) these guys are a blast to hang out with too. They are based in Iowa, but they have entertained destination weddings far beyond the Midwest. Definitely look them up no matter where you are planning your wedding for!!! I loved capturing these photographs of the group and loved photographing the wedding party dance the night away to their great sounds!

Casa Ybel Resort Wedding - Sanibel Photographer

wedding couple on the beach at casa ybel

Laura and Brian could not have asked for a better day. Perfect Florida weather, an amazing clear beach day and the backdrop of Casa Ybel on Sanibel Island were all part of this wonderful afternoon.

They were married on the beach with the sand between their toes and danced the night away under a beautifully decorated tent reception. Casa Ybel has several wonderful options for receptions. I really love the tent that they offer. It has a unique ambiance that no other island venue offers. It's situated just steps from the beach and just outside of the Thistle Lodge (the resorts award winning restaurant). Laura and Brian opt for their gorgeous lined tent that gives the space a very soft feel. That along with some cafe lights set the mood and created an elegant wedding atmosphere. The tent sits on a beautifully manicured lawn with all natural landscape, including some of my favorite, the old Florida palms that Sanibel Island is known for. Brian and Laura's wedding day and tent reception went off perfectly. I loved watching this destination wedding come together and being there to capture their day was definitely a pleasure!

Florida Wedding - Naples Wedding Photographer

A little something amazing that happened in Naples, Florida recently! Kelly and Kirby were married in a beautiful destination wedding ceremony. The couples friends and families all came in to celebrate their wedding with them in style! A few iconic pictures stops around Naples and a party that everyone will be talking about for years to come were just a few highlights of the day. I'll definitely share a second post with more from their super memorable wedding reception (complete with a great band, lush flowers and an over the top garden feel!).

I pretty much can't get enough of this wedding. Dan and Cassandra were just the most fun and so completely in love that capturing that was a treat. Add in a historical castle in the middle of Iowa.... perfection. It really was a treat to photograph at the Salisbury House in Des Moines. The location is the setting of a fairy tale. Beautiful architecture and a rich history make the Salisbury House perfect for hosting any special event or wedding. And this beautiful outdoor wedding took advantage of every part of that! Loved every moment of Cassandra and Dan's wedding day! They really did have the best wedding day imaginable and I was so fortunate to be with them in Des Moines as their wedding photographer!
