Engaged: Cassie & Scott October 6, 2009

Filed under: Engagement — Deb @ 2:44 pm

Cassie and Scott are one of the cutest couples I have ever met.  They met in St. Augustine while Cassie was in college.  One thing I love about meeting all different couples is that each couple has a different personality and I love bringing that out in people.  Cassie and Scott are both surfers who love having fun and love the outdoors, and they gave me free reign to do whatever I wanted.  So I thought it would only be fitting if they had a picnic.  Asside from the heat and the mosquitoes, it would be something memorable for them to look back on later and enjoy.  We had so much fun at Koreshan Park.   Here are some pictures.

We were already breaking a few rules, so I brought water instead of champagne:


Shari & Sean October 2, 2009

Filed under: Engagement — Deb @ 2:06 pm

Shari Bare has a very special place in my heart.  When I first became interested in wedding photography, she is the photographer who let me tag along and learn the ropes.  She has taken me to dinner, told me all about the industry, and really helped me grow as a photographer.  Shari is one of the most wonderful people you will ever meet – she’s always kind, never assuming, and makes you feel all happy inside when you talk with her!  So you can imagine how sad I was to hear that she was moving to Austin, TX.  A few weeks before she and Sean moved, we shot their engagement session.  They were just married this past weekend, and I thought it would be lovely to post their engagement session in honor of their marriage.  Shari, we really miss you here!  I hope Texas is as wonderful as all the Texans claim!

First, a few shots from inside their apartment:

We went to Blu Sushi on Third Street South in Naples.  It was the last day they were open. They said they would re-open during season, but Matt and I have confirmed that Blu Sushi is no where near re-opening. And we’re kind of bitter that we don’t know who they sold the furniture to!

No Naples day is complete without a trip to the beach:

And no trip to the beach is complete without trashing your dress:

They requested a few shots that could be made into panoramas.  I thought we could end with this one:

Congrats on your wedding, Shari, and I hope you are having an awesome honeymoon!!!


Deanna & Casey June 4, 2009

I was SO excited when I heard Matt’s cousin, Deanna, was engaged to Casey.  Casey is such a wonderful guy and we are thrilled to invite him into the family.  I was even more thrilled that they asked us to be a part of their wedding.  We met them at downtown Fort Myers and had a wonderful engagement session.


Jenny & Carlos are Getting Married! March 17, 2009

I’ve known Jenny since high school and I can’t tell you how excited I was when I found out she was engaged! I remember the first time I told her I met Matt. And then she met Carlos. So of course I wanted to shoot her wedding!  So we took her and Carlos around town for a fun and eventful engagement session. We can’t wait for their June 20 wedding!

I’m still making my way through Carlos and Jenny’s engagement session, and I found this little gem tonight. It makes me smile inside.



Jenny and Carlos: Teaser February 23, 2009

Filed under: Engagement,Uncategorized — Deb @ 5:54 pm

When it rains, it pours. We had an uber-hot session on Saturday with one of my really good friends, Jenny, and her amazing fiance, Carlos. I am so blessed to be shooting their wedding in June. I wouldn’t miss it for the world! Jenny and Carlos are probably two of the best dressed people I’ve ever shot. Jenny’s ridiculously cute cardigan is from anthropology. Drool.


One thing I noticed from this shoot and the shoot with Sarah and Dane, is that couples have “sides” – they tend to stand on one side of each other. I wonder if there’s been a study on this. We had a really awesome time, and I can’t wait to post more photos!





Casey & Matt are Getting Married! February 9, 2009

Casey and Matt are two friends from church.  We decided to take them out for a little photoshoot before their wedding.  It was fun to experiment a little with things I don’t normally try.  We had an awesome time despite the fact that we originally planned on having a playground shoot and the playground was closed for construction!  They were good sports nonetheless.  I can’t wait for their wedding in March – I’m going as a guest and plan to relax and enjoy the entire night.
