Emily + Quincy | Beach Wedding Photography

I’m just getting back to Wyoming from another trip to Florida and it is time to get this sneak peek up of this couple’s wedding photography!

Emily and Quincy tied the knot on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in April, on the beach, at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa.  This couple was so sweet together, I truly enjoyed photographing their outside wedding and working with them to create some great wedding photos.

And I really love Emily’s color scheme…ORANGE!  Perfect pop of color for a beach wedding. 🙂

Congratulations Emily and Quincy…more coming soon!

Jianna + Matt | Engagement Portraits

This couple made my job easy! Not only are they so incredible sweet together, they look like Barbie and Ken, but they were super comfortable posing in front of the camera for their engagement shoot.

I photographed them last month when I was back in Florida. We covered a lot of grounds in the River District of Fort Myers, FL capturing their engagement pictures.  And we lucked out with some awesome natural lighting, thank you clouds! 🙂

It was hard to narrow down my favorites engagement photos to put up here, so warning..there’s a lot!

Congratulations, Jianna and Matt…looking forward to your wedding day! 🙂

Jill + Craig | Outdoor Wedding | Wedding Photographer

I just got back from Florida, photographing Jill and Craig’s beach wedding at Sanibel Harbour.  March weddings in Florida at the beach = perfection!  🙂 LOVE this time of year!  The icing on the cake for me was this super sweet couple.  From day one they have been wonderful to work with and get to know.  On their wedding day, they were so relaxed and went with the flow on everything, which in turn made their day nice (no stress! or at least I saw none! 😉 ).

So here is a little sneak peek of their beach wedding day…enjoy!

Jodi + Russell, a Southwest Florida Wedding

I just got back from Florida, photographing this gorgeous wedding at the Estero Country Club at the Vines.  I do love winter weddings in Florida, such perfect weather and Jodi and Russell’s wedding was no exception.  They did a First Look, which was great because we were able to utilize A LOT of the scenic grounds around the country club before the ceremony and a few more after.  🙂

Here’s a sneak peek of a few of their portraits…

Wedding and Commercial Photographer of the Year

I was so humbled and honored to receive once again “Wedding Photographer of the Year” as well as “Commercial Photographer of the Year” with the Professional Photographers of Southwest Florida and “Outstanding Service Award” with the Florida Professional Photographers.  This was my last year with the PPSWF and FPP since I’ve moved out west, so I’m happy to go out with a bang!  I told my husband I should get a REALLY big bonus now from my boss (yours truly) and my office Christmas party (consisting of me, the cat, and the dog) is going to be epic, Haha… He’s not amused and probably really worried.  😀

I’ve now joined the Wyoming Professional Photography Association and am excited to get involved out here in Wyoming and Montana in the field of photography.  Cheers to the new year!

Here are a few of the images from the past year that got me those awards…

Photography Competitions – Wyoming and Montana Photographer

I finally got the results back from the competition I entered last month with my local photography guild back in Florida.   I’ve enjoyed being a part of the local SWFL chapter (Professional Photographers of Southwest Florida) of the PPA and FPP for the past 4 or 5 years. This year I served as the Vice President and Program Director, but now with my move to Wyoming, I will be stepping down.

Being a part of this group has helped me in all areas of my photography business…but being a part of the competitions we held 3 times a year, definitely helped with me with my skill level. It also allowed me to photograph personal projects for myself, not just for clients.

The photography competitions and I definitely had a love/hate relationship! It was completely nerve-wracking getting my prints ready to be judged live in front of all my peers. And every competition, without fail, the judges would completely dissect all my hard work! AH! Haha. But I definitely think it made me a better photographer.

So before I get back to Christmas orders and my never-ending editing (haha!), here are a few of my pieces from my last competition…
