Abigail and Oliver’s wedding and reception at the Quarry in Naples, Florida was absolutely beautiful! I was so honored to have been chosen to be their wedding photographer. All of their family, friends, bridesmaids and groomsmen were so sweet! Her dad came in, right before they were about to walk down the aisle and when he saw her in her dress he teared up, which of course made Abigail tear up as well… I love moments like those. Also, Abigail had a vintage watch fastened to her bouquet – I thought that was a wonderful touch! The wedding ceremony was supposed to be held outside, however there was such a high chance of rain it had to be moved inside into the church. Around portrait time, it started to rain a bit so we were unable to spend as much time outside taking portraits of just the bride and groom as originally planned; however we met up at a later date to do a post-wedding shoot (which was so much fun)! I would highly recommend couples do an after the wedding shoot – not only are the shots amazing but also they are a blast to do!
Their reception was gorgeous and their first dance was so beautifully choreographed. Also, the Bride’s Aunts had a special dance planned for Oliver, which was absolutely hysterical!
What a wonderful wedding with such a sweet couple! :)

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being invited to participate in a styled shoot for Legend's Golf and Country Club in Fort Myers, Florida. I got to work with some amazing vendors for this project - Kelly (who is the Wedding Manager at Legend's), Jay Rigdon (who is a DJ and owns Jay Rig Entertainment), and the wonderful girls at Alfred Angelo Bridal (who supplied the dress and hairpiece)!!! Our model, Alexa is an Advanced Hair Stylist at Roots Salon in Cape Coral (she also did her own hair and makeup for the shoot - She did such a great job! :) Alexa brought her handsome boyfriend Nick to be the groom, and his suit was supplied by Black Tie Tuxedo.
Here are a few photos from the shoot! Such a great time!!! :)
On a perfect summer day, I had the opportunity to photograph an adorable family at Casa Ybel Resort in Sanibel Island, Florida. They brought these SUPER CUTE balloons to the shoot - what a fun idea!!! We had a blast capturing memories out on the beach and in the resort grounds... I can't wait to return! :) www.CharlottePurdy.com
What a sweet story!!! A woman at a wedding got proposed to, and the bride was in on it. I love how they incorporated the bouquet toss into the proposal, since traditionally it means that whoever catches the bouquet is next to wed. :) I LOVE this.
XOXO - Charlotte
