Family photography at South Seas Island Resort
The Martinez family arrived from central Florida for their Captiva Island family photography session in June. Andy and Stephanie were joined by their son Emilio who is five years old. The vacation also served as an opportunity for Andy and Stephanie to renew their wedding vows. They met in 1994 working on a Rolling Stones Concert. Andy and Stephanie began dating two years later and were married in 2000. Just a few weeks ago, they again attended a Rolling Stones concert! The vow renewal ceremony was performed by Patricia Slater of Weddings by the Sea. When I photograph wedding vow renewals, I see it as an opportunity for photographing the family as well. The Martinez family stayed at the South Seas Island Resort. So it was a great opportunity to create a Captiva Island Family photography session for this family. The South Seas Island Resort is on the north end of Captiva Island. I met the Martinez at their condo near the entrance to the South Seas Resort. We photographed for half hour before Patricia arrived to perform the ceremony. Patricia had a lovely and colorful floral bouquet for Stephanie. We then all walked to the seashore for the wedding vow renewal ceremony.
Captiva Island Family Photography
For over twenty years I have created Captiva Island Family photography for vacationing families. The island faces to the west so it is easy to capture sunset photography on the beach. This day was unique with some clouds in the sky. This made for wonderful saturation of the green landscaping. Although it was our rainy season, we missed the afternoon showers! During the vow renewal ceremony, Emilio was a ‘little’ bored, 🙂 so he was nearby picking up seashells on the Captiva beach. When the vow renewal ceremony was over, we continued with family photographs as the sun was setting. Shown here are my favorite images we captured for this Captiva Island family photography session.
