Meghan & Darren

Weddings
April 8, 2017

Sometimes after I shoot a wedding and leave, I have a feeling of euphoria. It’s like I never want to do anything else. There’s a “perfect storm” of having an awesome couple, laid back wedding party, serendipitous venue, and all the pieces just fall in line. Meghan and Darren’s wedding was my perfect wedding. Not only were they a truly incredible couple, everything about their wedding was a dream.

Cypress M ranch is a small private ranch in Punta Gorda. I hadn’t ever heard of it because when I shot this wedding, the venue had just recently opened up. They had a great barn style reception area and an open, sprawling lawn for the ceremony. There were secret areas we could sneak away to for photos including a small pond and trails. The entire area had been kept up nicely.

During their engagement session, Darren and I had discussed his family’s history and archaeology. He was raised in South Florida and as a child spent tons of time outside exploring. He knew a ton about the local history in Labelle and it made for fantastic conversation. Later on when I met up with Meghan and Darren to photograph their new family, we continued the conversations. I love when we meet a couple that’s just so easy to relate to!

It's definitely an incredible way to spend an evening. We were fortunate to get to walk the property before the reception to take some more photos while the guests enjoyed the cocktail hour to live steel drum music out on the lush grass overlooking the beach. Once we finished ...

Living in the same place you grew up allows you some interesting opportunities. Especially when you’re a wedding photographer. This time the bride was someone Kyle has known since childhood. They attended the same schools growing up and their mothers were friends. It was fun to see her grow up and get married to an awesome guy and it was really interesting to see all the old friends and acquaintances who attended the wedding. The ceremony was at McGregor Baptist Church in Ft Myers where they had the biggest receiving line we’d ever seen. Receiving lines are so much fun because they allow us some time to get candid photos of the couple and ...
