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.

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. Wedding couples plan their wedding venue on these coastal islands of Florida to get away from the dark gray skies of the north. Having arrived from the north many years ago, I was fascinated with photographing weddings without artificial light. After that, my goal included as much photography of weddings and family sessions as possible using natural light.

The charming Sanibel and Captiva Islands have superb lighting for photography and a spectacular natural landscape. 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 off the coast of Fort Myers. A great backdrop for a couple kissing. Also, great photo opportunities as the sky turns scarlet with a family enjoying the moment makes for a cherished keepsake photograph.

Beach photography is a special experience on either island. So, I see people young and old enjoy scooping up the most unusual shells that are scattered throughout the sand.

The Sanibel Lighthouse on the southwest end is 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 seeing the Chapel, you can get a sense of history as you tour the grounds. In addition, during the holidays, they put up a festive display of lights.

It is important to find a photographer who knows how to put you at ease so that the love that is in your relationships comes through. You will see there is so much beauty that surrounds you on Sanibel Island. Because of this, your photography should capture one precious moment in time. For instance, joyful and colorful images shared between you and the people you love.
