I had such a great time at the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens’ Wedding Photo Shootout. Talk about a wedding photographer’s dream!! 3 hours with two couples with exotic and beautiful scenery, beautiful outdoor light, a monkey in the background and lots of AMAZING wedding vendors and a ton of awesome wedding photographers all coming together to make gorgeous photos.

I. WAS. IN. FREAKING. HEAVEN.

I’m in love with that bouquet!!

Hair and make up are the two most important things about your wedding day. You want to look picture perfect, the men at Salon Tease make you look PERFECT, by bringing out your natural beauty. (I love these two and they will make you feel like a million bucks!)

Special Thanks goes out to Courtney, Director of Group Sales at the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens for putting this all together for us. If you are still planning your Naples or Southwest Florida wedding and are looking for fun-loving, good people to work with, I highly suggest these vendors – and check out the zoo for a possible venue!!
