Lange Farm Wedding – Joshua and Brittany

Written by Sheila on July 24th, 2014

This is an amazing location for a wedding, Lange Farm just east of Tampa.  So I was definitely beyond excited when I found out Brittany + Joshua would be celebrating their special day at Lange Farm and Ranch in Southwest Florida. Their beautiful, rustic wedding was full of fabulous details, wonderful people, and plenty of love and laughter.   Here are a few of my favorite moments from their day.

Here is hoping everyone is having a gorgeous and meaningful new year. I thought this Florida engagement session would be a perfect way to continue the celebration. Cassandra and Kevin’s country military engagement session is unbelievably gorgeous! Taken just in time before Kevin headed back to his base. The photos and theme came together beautifully. Leave it up to their creative personalities to find the perfect props to take their country vibe from cute to stunning.  Enjoy the beauty you’re about to see and remember to thank incredible people like Kevin for their selfless sacrifice.

Here’s to loving Florida almost as much as I love photographing adorable couples. Cassandra and Kevin will be getting married later this year.

Emerson Point Preserve is so dynamic for photo sessions and for exploring. It is vast and and full of green-space with the best of all worlds. Tall grass, oak trees, walkways and water front.

Cassandra had so many great ideas, and just threw them out to me and I was total on board with all of them. The entire engagement session was done at Emerson Point Preserve in Palmetto Florida:  Sarasota Wedding Photographer: Sheila Simmington



Sharky’s Pier; A Venice Beach Wedding

Written by Sheila on November 17th, 2013

Love, Love photographing weddings with couples willing to pretty much go along with anything I suggest as far as posing and photographic ventures.  Brett and Kathryn were completely down with all my new fun beach wedding posing ideas.  And what fun we had running up and down the beach, playing under the pier and yes, even laying down on the beach sand. Sharky’s On The Pier is a laid back, Tiki style, tropical Florida atmosphere. You can find them situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Venice Florida.

Love this shot.  I found a similar  photo in my archives and decided to updated. Gulf of Mexico in Venice Florida. Beach Wedding

How romantic, Under the pier on the Gulf of Mexico. Love the Pier shots.



Siesta Key Wedding; A Romantic Evening

Written by Sheila on October 10th, 2013

Ok, this is the first time I have photographed such a unique intimate setting on the beach in Sarasota. A photographers dream is realized when they show up at a wedding that is unlike any wedding they have photographed before. This is one that I would say is right up there with being so individual and unique. From the crackled pillars, to the benches with cushions for a family only ceremony. Both the bride and groom recited their hand written vows in English as well as in Spanish.  To the very intimate, romantic dinner placed  under the banyan tree in the courtyard of their resort. I’m blessed to have been part of this wonderful evening. Lets get going with some photo’s shall we?

Love that Siesta Key white sand and azure water of the gulf of mexico.

The entire wedding. I love how intimate this wedding is. Family. Don’t get me wrong I love big wedding parties also. But this afforded me to really take my time and get really creative with the wedding.

Beautiful feather bouquet handcrafted by the brides father. Stunning for the beach and gulf of mexico.

What a handsome gentleman!

I’m so happy for Amber and Andy and so pleased they they held true to their vision. What a beautiful bond. Wishing you well love birds!
