Where you put your dress on is more than just where you put your dress on. The location where you choose to get ready is going to be where we capture all of those pre-wedding details, the dress hanging, your wedding day shoes and jewelry. And while I have made that work everywhere from a preschool in the basement of a church (challenging, but nailed it) to a cliff side retreat on an island off the coast of Mexico (not challenging, easily nailed it) you are definitely getting the best pictures when you choose a stunning venue to start. And it doesn't have to be the place where you are getting married or holding your wedding reception. With this adorable bride, she is actually a Naples, Florida resident who got married at a church in Naples, but knowing that she wanted that lush beautiful backdrop for some pictures, she booked a hotel room at the Naples Beach Hotel to capture all of her pre-wedding getting ready pictures. It worked out brilliantly. The variety that it added to her pictures and the stunning areas we had to work with for her detail photographs gave her the best wedding pictures. If you are planning a wedding for Chapel By The Sea on Captiva Island or a backyard ceremony at your home, that doesn't mean you are limited to those venues for your pre-wedding pictures. Select one of the most picturesque hotels to begin your day at. A room at Casa Ybel on Sanibel Island or The Westin in Cape Coral will give you something amazing to begin your wedding pictures with. And let's face it, having mimosas on the balcony of one of those relaxing waterfront resorts is really a good way to start a wedding day!
