IMG Golf Club Wedding – Bradenton

Monday, December 29th, 2014

What a little hidden gem and my first wedding at the IMG Golf and Country club in Bradenton Florida.  Pam and Earl married in the afternoon with a private ceremony and reception of mostly just family. While there was no wedding party, I had lots of time to work with just the bride and groom around the grounds and make some  wonderful and romantic images.

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


Bradenton Wedding

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

This Bradenton backyard wedding, was unique and fun with a little flare of hipster meets day of the dead.  Every once in a while you photograph a wedding unlike any wedding you have photographed ever; this was it for me.  I was absolutely inspired by the colors and the ribbons and whole vibe of the wedding.  I would like to add that the food was the best I have EVER seen, photographed, and devoured at any wedding; find out where the food came from below.  Alex; shy and soft spoken, doe eyed, pale skin and high cheek bones was a delight to photograph; Dorian with his hip top hat and outspoken personality was enthusiastically liked by all the guests and had NO problem poising for the camera. The wedding ceremony started at 4:20 and it went a little something like this:
