Styled Wedding Shoot at Legend's Country Club in Fort Myers Charlotte Purdy Photography

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!!! :)

Sneek Peek - Jared and Lisa's Fun Bowditch Park Fort Myers Wedding!!! Fort Myers Wedding Photographer

I am so excited to share this sneak peek from Jared and Lisa's fun Bowditch Park Beach Wedding !!! :) These two are cute together and their intimate ceremony at Fort Myers Beach was both full of love and smiles. So honored to have been chosen to be their wedding photographer.

I Believe in Magical Moments...

I believe in magical moments. Like that moment when the bride is walking down the aisle, and her daddy cries as he is about to give her away. Or that moment when the groom brings his mother in close, while he is smiling proudly at her as he and her are spinning across the room arm and arm. Or the bride, peeking down the aisle, trying to get a glimpse of her groom. These moments linger in my memory, and cause me to smile as I capture your memories.

I have one of the best jobs in the world.

Choosing a wedding photographer is a very difficult task, because in addition to needing to have the right equipment and know-how, you also need to choose a person that you can see yourself being around (pretty much all the time) on your wedding day.

My brides and grooms become my friends. Behind each picture is a memory and behind each memory is a story – and I have the greatest honor of being chosen to tell story.

No wedding is perfect – but sometimes it is the imperfections that make a wedding the most cherished. Not because the wedding is Pinterest perfect, or because the wedding should be in the next issue of The Knot, but because it’s your story and it’s what makes your story unique.

When you are looking for a wedding photographer, one of the most important things that you need to look for is this: “Do they care?” Because a photographer who cares is much more valuable than a hundred that don’t.  


Stephanie and Tysen's Fort Myers Engagement Session - Fort Myers Wedding Photographer

Not that long ago I had the pleasure of photographing Stephanie and Tysen. Our shoot was a blast as we explored Downtown Fort Myers during their Engagement Session. Their engagement story is so cute! Tysen surprised Stephanie by proposing to her on the Eiffel Tower. How romantic! :) Anyways, I hope you have as much fun viewing their pictures as I did taking them.

Take care,
