Naples, Florida Botanical Garden Spring Wedding- Jackie + Ryan

This wedding is very special to my heart! Jackie and Ryan are the nicest humans ever and their wedding was already scheduled for last year September, the day after hurricane Irma hit Southwest Florida. The Botanical Garden had to close due to the weather and Jackie and Ryan’s wedding was cancelled, shortly before all their relatives arrived from out of State. They went to Italy for their honeymoon nevertheless and rescheduled their wedding for the following April. I was so excited to finally document their day and believe that with all they went through, their day ended up being just perfect :)
Here are a few of my faves:


Naples Florida Spring Wedding- Lauren + Diego

In Southwest Florida our most beautiful seasons are spring and fall. The flowers bloom, the temperature is close to perfect and there is almost no humidity in the air. This was definitely one of the reasons why Lauren and Diego got married in March in one of Naples’ most stunning locations, the Naples Botanical Garden.

Lauren and Diego met a few years back and started a daily first, before they decided to tie the knot. Their almost one yearly daughter and four year old son were the cutest ever.

There was so much love on this day and I couldn’t have been happier to be able to document their special day! Thanks so much for having us Lauren and Diego, we were so thankful to be part of your celebration!



Ashtyn and Will

So I am keeping this trend going and am blogging for the second time this week, haha. I have so many shoots to blog about, so here we go.

A few months back Ashtyn and Will decided to renew their wows at a a private little spot at the beach. Ashtyn is herself an amazing wedding photographer and Catherine, who organized everything for them as well, so it was really fun hanging out with these two, plus Ashtyn’s hubs of course.

The reason they did their vow renewal after only a few years of marriage was that they didn’t really like their wedding photos when they got married and I can so relate to that, it absolutely was the same for Sal and me. :)

Anyway, these two are the nicest humans ever and this remains one of my favorite shoots so far!


Flowers: Kaleidoscope Florals

Venue: Collier County Public Library, Delnor Wiggins State Park

Marion + Doug

Hi guys!

It’s been a while :) I have been very active on Instagram but I always tend to neglect my blog. Anyone with me here? Maybe it’s because I think that no one ever bothers to read blogs anymore, maybe my brother in England- Hi Christoph- or my cousin in Germany, hahaha!!

Anyway, a few months ago I invested in my business and myself and booked a mentor session with an amazing, successful destination wedding photographer in my area. We talked biz, marketing, editing and shot this amazing and gorgeous couple downtown and at the beach.

Here are some of my faves:



The perfect anniversary gift for him this Spring

Sal and I celebrated our anniversary recently and even after all these years, I still get all giddy about it and looked for weeks to find the perfect gift. We always make sure to take time off for each other and do something special. This year we decided to head down to the beach, pack a picnic basket and a bottle of our favorite bubbly and watch the sunset. 

And seriously? This time I definitely found the perfect gift for him, an amazing wood crafted, minimalist watch from Jordwatch 

After watching the sunset and a video, he made for me out of old photos of our time together, he opened his present and was completely in love. With me and the watch, haha

I have never seen such a unique, cool, minimalist watch and already told him that for Mother's Day the kids and he could give me a watch like this for myself :) 

 Seriously, time seems to fly by so fast lately, I wish I could freeze time, but for now I'll just freeze this moment and the feeling how much joy a simple gift can give to the person you love.

Stephanie + Fiona

I have have started my photography career as a family and lifestyle photographer and slowly have moved over to doing mainly elopements and weddings. But once a year around the holidays I pick up my camera and photograph families again. This session was so much fun! I have photographed Stephanie and Fiona already last year and it is so fun to see how much this little cutie has grown in one year! 

Nikki + Tom

They met in second grade and only had eyes for each other. Tom was smitten by Nikki's sweet smile and promised himself that one day he would marry this girl.

Fast forward to twenty years later, Nikki and Tom got married surrounded by all their family and friends on a lovely fall afternoon. They had vacationed in Naples before and loved the lush landscape and greenery, so they chose to get married in one of Naples most beautiful places. The Botanical Garden. 

Nikki's family is from Persian descent so Nikki and Tom chose to incorporate elements from both cultures, his and hers, to celebrate this special day. 

It was such a pleasure documenting your day, your love radiates like the sun, thank you for letting me be part of your first day as husband and wife. Much appreciation! Sabina :)
