On February 26, 2017 my son Tommy and I once again were hired to photograph another lovely couple at the Edison Country Club. This historic club is a public course with an added restaurant and a lovely banquet room. The wedding was performed indoors and it was interesting to see how the room was transformed from reception hall to ceremony space and back again.
The décor was beautiful glass with blue & silver accents and a white runner aisle for the bride to walk down.
As her father walked her down the aisle, you could see his emotion welling up within him. He was giving away his baby girl. It’s always beautiful to see the sweet relationship between the bride and her father. You could see how proud he was of her.
As dad passed off his daughter to the eager awaiting groom the ceremony commenced and soon they were pronounced husband and wife.
After signing the license, the couple took to the outdoors so we could get the iconic Edison in the background of their portrait shots.
We didn’t have the usual Florida sunset on this particular evening, however we had some beautiful gold light, and the wedding party still had a great time.
Where I live in Florida we don’t have four distinct seasons, we have two; Snowbird season beginning in mid October and the season when they go back north which is normally after Easter. During this time in South West Florida the events and concerts pick up and my camera sees a lot of action. The weather is a lot more pleasant for outdoor events and weddings. My season started on October 15 with a wedding held at one of the most historic country clubs in Fort Myers; The Edison. I am fortunate enough to be able to work with my youngest son. He is an incredible photographer and one I trust explicitly. The long view of the couple facing The Edison was taken by him. Please visit his website at phloridaphoto
Between the special events I also schedule portrait sessions and was able to photograph an interesting fellow whom I believe is one of the many spirits which lurk in Historic Downtown Fort Myers, complete with orb and gargoyle (look closely).
I was also at Fright Nite where The Sick Puppies and Devour the Day headlined, there were also a few interesting characters out that night as well. You can see more of the photos from this frightful night by clicking on the photo below.
