The Knot - Hall Of Fame Winner

Honored is an understatement! After 5 years of receiving The Knot's Best of Weddings Award (including again for 2019!) Impressions Photography is now part of the their Hall of Fame group of wedding professionals!! I pour my heart and soul into every event that I photograph and being recognized for that passion is an extraordinary feeling! Thank you to all of my wonderful clients who have taken the time to review my services over the years on The Knot. The awards are largely based on your kind words and I am forever thankful to have such a fabulous group of people in my life!

Pictured is a beach picture from the Captiva Island wedding of Chelsea and Darby on the left and Brooke on the right who got married in Des Moines, Iowa this past summer..... and one palm tree also from Captiva! Because palm trees and weddings, what more does anyone need :)

Thanks again everyone!!! If the Impressions Photography 2019 weddings are a fraction of as fabulous as 2018 has been it will still be a super year!

Another Adventure in Puerto Vallarta!!

It has been just over 10 years since I photographed my first wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It was actually in an area called Las Caletas. A neat little island like oasis where couples can rent the entire facility for their wedding day. Guests are shuttled by boat to the secluded beach really to really set the mood for the day. Perhaps the most charming part is that after dark the entire area is lit only by candles. It's an unforgettable scene!

Now, fast forward almost exactly 10 years and I'm flying back to Puerto Vallarta next week. This time I was extended an invitation from the Four Seasons Punta Mita to explore their property and find out more about the wedding services that they offer. I'll be among several amazing wedding planners and stylists to share in the experience. I first met this group when the Four Seasons Nevis offered each of us an invitation to tour their property. I was thrilled to find out I would be reunited with the same fun group for another Four Seasons experience.

A styled shoot in Mexico is also part of this adventure. I've photographed over a dozen weddings in Mexico, but this will be the first styled shoot. With so many amazing locations to photograph at in the Punta Mita area, I'm sure the shoot will be a treat too! So definitely watch in the coming weeks for lots of pictures and updates on the beautiful Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita! If it's anything like my experience touring the Four Seasons Nevis I'm sure I'll be 100% wowed and excited to share all the details!!!

Customized Timelines For Each Wedding Day

Among the many hats the wedding photographer wears one of the often overlooked is the important job of creating a timeline for pictures. This is important so that couples can realistically get all of the wedding pictures they hoped for. Having been fortunate enough to be part of hundreds of weddings, making that timeline is a bit of a specialty of mine! I'm happy to offer this service complimentary to all couples planning a wedding. Take a quick survey and we can give you a detailed timeline of how we feel photography would flow best and also help as you are scheduling other aspects of your day. Reach out today to have that survey sent right to you!

Caribbean Bound!

Closing up shop early this week and I'm Caribbean bound. I've been invited to join a group of wedding professionals for a trip to the Four Seasons on the island of Nevis (neighboring St. Kitts). I've had the pleasure of visiting St. Kitts before, but never made it all the way to Nevis so this is definitely a treat. And, as a lover of all things Hamilton, I'm feeding my ridiculous obsession by visiting the birthplace of said founding father on Nevis. So, excited is an understatement. Hamilton, a weekend of wedding talk and a few more palm tree pictures and I'm one happy camper!

Clark & Megan's South Seas Resort Destination Wedding

This wedding day was nothing short of perfect! Clark and Megan brought their friends and family from Georgia to Captiva Island for their tropical destination wedding. The two were married on the King's Crown Lawn and celebrated their reception in a seaside tent. I loved that the tent was just steps from the beach and overlooked a fabulous Captiva Island sunset. The couple shared a sense of style that fit perfectly with the relaxed approach that we are known for. Their fun, easy going attitude was such a joy to capture. I love being inspired by my clients to thoughtfully tell their unique wedding day story. Clark and Megan were so comfortable and easy to be around I felt like they were old friends and we were telling a story we already knew well.

Texas Wedding - Destination Photographer


2018 Travel Schedule

texas bride getting ready photo

The past two months have been among the most hectic but also enjoyable that I've had in a long time. I don't think I've actually been home for more than a day or two at a time. March ended with an amazing wedding in Texas and a drive from there to New Orleans for another shoot. From there the next 6 weeks are almost a blur! Tampa to Iowa to Philadelphia, a cross country drive from Iowa to Florida a trip to Key West, an incredible visit to Cuba and a second trip back to Philadelphia. Next week I'm going back to Iowa, and then another trip to Philadelphia and then off to Chicago.

I always say I'm living my 10 year old dream life. The travel and adventures are always fun, but I am definitely looking forward to being in one place for a few weeks this summer. I have so many great weddings from all over the country that I can't wait to share! Check back, I promise I'll be back to my regular wedding posts and sharing all of my exciting wedding adventures here soon!

I would love to meet for a shoot or to talk about your destination wedding while I'm on the road. My upcoming travel includes:

New York
New Orleans
St Kitts & Nevis
Black Hills, South Dakota
Des Moines
Key West
And lots of time between Sioux City and Fort Myers!

Sanibel Harbour Marriott Wedding | Sanibel Photographer

Sanibel Harbour Marriott wedding ceremony

One of my all time favorite wedding venues, Sanibel Harbour Marriott, offers a unique wedding location in Southwest Florida. Located just before you head over the causeway to Sanibel Island the resort overlooks the Gulf of Mexico, Pine Island and Sanibel and offers some stunning sunset views. 

When I moved to Fort Myers just after finishing photography school in New York, my very first apartment was in a building just a short walk to Sanibel Harbour. I began my photo career then offering services mainly to clients on Sanibel and Captiva Islands and Sanibel Harbour (before it was even a Marriott property) was not only among my favorite locations to photograph, with it's location right next door to where I lived, it was also a favorite spot for dinner, drinks and to meet up with friends. I moved away from that apartment and bought a house in Fort Myers many years ago, but that sweet wedding venue will always hold a special place in my heart. Since then I have continued to photograph many special events and some of the best Southwest Florida weddings and every time I am back there I am reminded of all of those good times and great memories that make Sanibel Harbour Marriott extra special to me.
