The islands are so natural with pristine white-sand and gorgeous teal water. Palm trees swaying in the breeze arriving from the Gulf of Mexico. Dolphins frolicking in the shallows and great egrets against the pure blue of the sky. Children playing in the sand and running along the seashore with their parents. Here is a link to a recent Sanibel Island family photography session.

The driftwood and natural greenery provides a rich contrast to the bright sand for family photo sessions. In addition, a warm ocean breeze drifts in, melting away tension and bringing a sense of happy bliss.

Sanibel Island Wedding Photography

So much of Sanibel and Captiva island photography involves light, natural light. As a result, wedding couples plan their wedding venue on these coastal islands. Their photography shows bright colors and green landscapes. Sanibel and Captiva Islands are located off the coast of Fort Myers. Having arrived from the north many years ago, I was fascinated with photographing weddings without artificial light. For over 30 years, I have photographed weddings and family sessions using natural light as much as possible.

The charming Sanibel and Captiva Islands have spectacular natural landscapes. Above all, the islands have superb lighting for photography. Similarly, the islands are an ideal place for weddings, family photo sessions, or engagement photography.

The west-facing gulf beaches are the best places to capture sunset photography on these Islands. For instance, this is a great backdrop for a photo of a couple kissing. Also, there are nice photo opportunities as the sky turns scarlet with a family enjoying the moment.

Captiva Island Family Photo Sessions

Capturing your beach photography session is a special experience on either island. For instance, often I see people scooping up the most unusual shells that are scattered throughout the sand. Here is a recent family photography session on Captiva Island.

Similarly, the Sanibel Lighthouse on the southwest end can be a favorite place for sunrise photography. Further up island, the Chapel by the Sea on Captiva Island is a popular spot for island weddings with a minister. After that, you can get a sense of history as you tour the Chapel grounds. In addition, during the holidays, they put up a festive display of lights.
