nicole + guy: downtown fort myers engagement session

As a wedding photographer, I always try to stress how important engagement photos are for my clients. In fact, I purposefully include them in my packages because I so desire the opportunity to work with my clients, camera in hand, before their wedding day. Engagement photos take the in-front-of-camera nerves away, allow a trusting relationship to grow, and in the end, you walk away with a great bunch of photos to adorn your walls and house. To me, they are somewhat of a lifeline to achieving awesome wedding photos, so it’s basically a win all around.

We started Nicole and Guy’s shoot (like many shoots) where they tell me how they’re not great in front of the camera. Honestly, it happens almost every shoot (I even still to this day say it myself when my sister has me in front of the camera). And, then, we start walking, talking, getting to know each other, and spend the next hour or so hanging out. Nerves have calmed and truly by the end of the shoot, I have some new friends, they work the camera (and look goooood doing it), trust has been built, and we’re basically set, from a photography aspect, for the wedding day.

Back to the friends part, Nicole and Guy, words can’t even express how fabulous you both are. It was so great getting to know you both better and I’m thankful to call you not only my clients, but my friends. Seriously, it’s working with people like you that make my job so much fun and enjoyable. I hope you guys love your photos!!

These candid moments are my fave…


Ahh, neither one of you can claim to be NOT photogenic again. Because I have proof that you ARE….

Yup, I’d say the camera loves you guys…


Nicole, you are adorable.

…you’re not bad yourself, Guy.

I have loved every second I’ve gotten to spend with you guys so far and I know your capturing your wedding in March will be no different. Thanks for choosing and trusting me during this most special time in your life- you guys are awesome!!
