I was super excited to see that this lovely destination wedding was featured in the Celebration Society blog this week! Loved working with Fabulously Chic Weddings and seeing how their team transformed the clubhouse at the Sanctuary on Sanibel Island into a wedding dream! Definitely contact Courtney and her amazing crew if you are planning a Florida destination wedding. I had the pleasure of working with her most recently on Sanibel, however she has shared her amazing talents with beautiful weddings from Captiva to Naples.

Destination Okoboji! When you grew up around a place that's as special as this, you bring everyone to Iowa and show them how to have a good time in the Midwest! That's what Jenny and Jay did. The Los Angeles couple planned their August wedding at Bridges Bay Resort on Lake Okoboji. The couple was fortunate to have one of the first weddings in their new Waterfront Event Center. The new reception space overlooks the lake with a breathtaking water view. The ceremony site is also right on the water. Perched high above the marina it allows for panoramic views of Lake Okoboji, making it an amazing location for pictures too.

Naples Beach Hotel Wedding

Impressions Photography has had the honor to be selected for the preferred vendor list for the Naples Beach Hotel for several years. It really is special to have such a notable hotel recommend our services to wedding couples. If you have never been to the hotel, it definitely is worth a visit. The stunning property sits right on the beach and has an amazing view of the sunset. And if you are planning your wedding you need to talk to the incredible Naples Beach Hotel wedding staff. From a ceremony on the beach to a reception in the hotel ball room, the entire property is just stunning.

Hole N' The Wall Lodge Wedding - Akron, Iowa

I've been asked a few times to share more images from the wedding that I photographed at this unique little spot. Tucked away just a short drive from Sioux City, Iowa isThe Hole N' The Wall Lodge. It's a quaint and quiet cabin perfect for a wedding or event. This group rented out the entire property (hotel style rooms as well as teepees!) and decorated the cabin perfectly with rustic centerpieces that set the mood for a fun evening. Located in Akron, Iowa, the Hole N' The Wall Lodge boasts am amazing property with beautiful wooded areas as well as fields that lend themselves perfectly to unique wedding photography. If you are looking for a place that is convenient to Sioux Falls or Sioux City and offers full service weddings, definitely give this adorable rustic venue a look!

Engaged - Sioux City Photographer

Anyone ready for a Super Bowl?! My team isn't going (again) so I'm a little indifferent this year, but thought since it is the end of football season I would share this memory of Emilee and Wade's engagement shoot. I think the vintage football was a nice touch for two college football fans/rivals. I love when couples bring along something that makes their pictures unique and special to them. This was a really simple moment we captured in Emilee's backyard before the couple got dressed up and headed around Sioux City to capture their more serious pictures. I typically suggest all of my couples do three different looks for their pictures, and super casual/fun is always a good place to start! If you are thinking about having engagement pictures taken and would like to set up a phone consultation to discuss wardrobe and location ideas, don't hesitate to reach out, I would love to chat about what we can do to make your pictures just as special!

Fort Myers Engagement Pictures - Florida Photographer

Fort Myers Engagement Pictures
Travis and Briana didn't hesitate when we discussed where they wanted to do their engagement pictures. Downtown Fort Myers has always been their plan. The couple got engaged downtown, they live downtown and if you ever want to know anything about what is happening in the River District of Fort Myers, they are always in the know. So the obvious choice for them is the hometown that they love.

And really what other city has a huge banyan tree right in the middle of the downtown! Of course their engagement pictures included that tree as well as several other historic spots as we walked around the city. Fort Myers, aka the city of palms, offers a ton of different backdrops and endless amounts of photography options.

Naples Florida Wedding Photography.

I gush every time I look at this brides wedding pictures. She stunned at the Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida. The entire wedding was filled with such love and happiness, I love being reminded of how perfect the day was. And with a smile like that, it's no wonder everyone around her was just as happy. I'm sure she's just as thrilled to have so many photographs to remember that day and that feeling too.
