South Seas Island Resort Wedding | Captiva Island Photographer










This day took us from Chapel by the Sea on Captiva Island for a perfect little church ceremony to South Seas Island Resort where there was a wedding reception and celebration that was non stop fun. And the best part of this day (for us!) was that Impressions Photography was the photo team in charge of capturing all of the fun. From getting ready pictures at South Seas to what is probably the most romantic little seaside church you will ever find for a wedding ceremony, we were there doing the picture thing and being inspired by every bit of it. After the ceremony we took bride and groom pictures at both the Chapel by the Sea and South Seas Island Resort. Both offer some stunning photo backdrops, so there was no shortage of photo opportunities. Then the party of all parties with a fabulous reception venue overlooking the beach and that fabulous Captiva Island sunset. It was definitely a treat to be there to capture this day. Congratulations to the sweet Adam and Rachel!!!

Good morning everyone! Just finished working on a wedding day timeline for a potential Impressions Photography client and thought I'd share a little about those timelines. Wedding day timeline suggestions are a little something extra I do for every couple that reaches out. A quick phone conversation or a few questions answered via email usually gives me enough information to put together a timeline idea for couples. Using the information they provide I detail out what they can expect from me and my team during each portion of the day. I feel like just suggesting a time frame that usually works or has worked well with another couple doesn't take into consideration the things that are most important to that individual couple. I think it's important to customize the photography timeline for each couple and offering that information before they've even reserved my services is just a little something extra that Impressions Photography does.

If you are planning your wedding and would like to see my timeline suggestion for your day definitely reach out. I would be happy to detail out all of the important events of the day for you. From scheduling hair and make-up to giving instructions to grandparents, knowing what photographs are happening at what time is a key part of a wedding day. I'd love to help you get started with that plan!

Captiva Island Photographer | South Seas Island Resort Wedding

Bride at South Seas Resort Captiva Island Wedding



Just wanted to make an unofficial announcement that the new Impressions Photography website is live, although still a bit of a work in progress. I'm adding a few finishing touches, which includes adding this stunning South Seas Island Resort wedding to the galleries section. I actually think the hardest part of my job is selecting images. Being the photographer at a wedding is a very emotional process. I pour my heart into every picture. There is a personal connection with the moment and then that image. After a wedding removing myself from how much I loved that couple, or that day or how kind and sweet a flower girl was is actually hard. I fall in love with so many pictures and each has it's own little story that means so much to me. selecting the ones that will also connect with a person who wasn't there or doesn't know that sweet bride, is definitely a challenge. So if you're looking at the new site and you see a photo and you're thinking "why would she share that silly picture", it might just be because it reminds me of a special time and it makes my heart happy. Hope you enjoy the new images I've shared. I'm excited to get everyone's feedback!

Behind the Scenes at Impressions Photography

So I was told today by a local wedding planner that Impressions Photography stands out for being organized and keeping everything pleasantly on schedule on a wedding day. I love a good schedule and I love taking the stress of that off of my clients. I want them to enjoy their day, so I do always put a lot of effort into making a good wedding day timeline before the day and then I feel like it is my job to be paying attention to that schedule. If it's time for the bridesmaids to be getting their dresses on I'm the one who is watching the time and letting the ladies know that it's about that time. To me that just seems like part of my job. Hearing that it is an often overlooked aspect for many photographers is definitely unfortunate, but I am happy to offer that to my clients. To me it's just a natural part of making the wedding day as exceptional as I can for each bride and groom.

I'm still a little blown away by this, but this year marks 20 years of business for Impressions Photography. I've got some exciting plans to commemorate the year. Starting in March we will be rolling out a community service initiative, Making a Difference in 20 Ways in 2020. It's a little something I have planned to give back to the community that has supported Impressions Photography for all of these years. So definitely check back soon and watch for all the details on how you can join us in making a difference!

Behind the Scenes at Impressions Photography



In with new! Our new website should be up within a few days, but it looks like we might be without a website for short bit. So just wanted to put a little "hello" out there and let anyone know who is on the search for a wedding or portrait photographer, that I'm still here! I would take a trip to the dentist over the pain of website updating, but it's happening and I have a feeling it's going to be a much needed improvement once done. So check back soon, I'll be looking for your feedback and welcoming everyone to our new space soon!
