Sam and Darren’s Tarpon Lodge elopement portraits were so. much. fun!!! These two were beaming with excitement and happiness, and they were such a joy to be around! It is such an honor to capture their love and celebrate with the two of them. And the best part?! Their sweet fur baby joined in on all the fun! The love Sam and Darren share is sooo special and I cannot wait to see all that is in store for them.
Tarpon Lodge is an absolutely gorgeous waterfront property in Pineland, near Fort Myers, FL. This stunning property has accommodations available for events of every size, complemented by the most beautiful waterfront views. You’ll be instantly immersed in the beauty of Florida for an intimate experience unlike any other!
As always, Florida's weather can be anything but predictable. And that’s okay! We embrace the crazy Florida weather here! Sam and Darren had an evening filled with on-and-off rain, but it cleared up perfectly for their Tarpon Lodge elopement portraits. It was such a beautiful evening!
Before documenting their love, these two eloped in an intimate ceremony. There are a million and one reasons to elope, but just in case you need that last little push to just do it, here are 3 reasons eloping is always a great idea:
- The intimacy of an elopement is unlike any other. It could be 10 of your closest family and friends, or just the two of you! What better way to celebrate and honor your love than with those who mean the absolute world to you?!
- If you’ve been dreaming of a destination elopement, it’s time to bring that dream to life. The beauty of an elopement is that it can be anywhere your wildest dreams will take you! A PNW elopement, an elopement deep in the heart of Tuscany, on the beach, or deep in the woods of Colorado.
- Last but not least, an elopement is YOUR day to celebrate. A “traditional” wedding, too! Make it YOURS. Celebrate in whatever way YOU want to!
If you are looking for a Southwest Florida wedding photographer to document your destination elopement or intimate wedding, I would LOVE to be a part of your day! My approach to your special day is to document the moments as they happen, celebrate alongside you, and give you a stress-free Florida wedding photography experience!🍾
