Kate and Chris had a beautiful destination wedding at the Gasparilla Inn & Club on Boca Grande, Florida. We were so happy that they decided to have their destination wedding in Florida, and that we could capture their special day. If you love the idea of island wedding destinations check out Boca Grande, Florida. It offers many different locations, such as a street lined with banyan trees, beautiful old lighthouses, historical buildings, golf courses and a gorgeous view of the sunset. Kate and Chris got ready at the Gasparilla Inn. We took gorgeous pictures of her rings, dress and details. Their ceremony was held at St. Andrews Episcopal Church surrounded by their family and friends. Kate and Chris had such a cute exit from the ceremony site, on a two person bike! We have never seen this idea and thought it was brilliant and made for some cute wedding photos. The reception took place at the beautiful Gasparilla Inn Beach Club. Guests enjoyed the cocktail hour poolside and enjoyed a great sunset view. Kate and Chris decided to have a live band for their entertainment, Papa Sol, and they rocked the house! They provided hours of entertainment and everyone was having a blast. As you can see below, we got some really great wedding reception photos of all the guests dancing. Pin these images to your wedding Pinterest board if you are looking for fun wedding party pictures! We had a blast shooting their wedding and wish Kate and Chris all the best!

Our Fort Myers Beach photographer had such a great time capturing this fun and friendly family session with their pet dog on Fort Myers Beach, Florida. We started the session in the natural light, which created a great backdrop for the family portraits. With Fort Myers Beach weather being so nice we ended up near the water’s edge for sunset portraits. With the natural light, sunset view, and beautiful weather Fort Myers Beach is a great place to have your family beach portraits taken.
Here at Jennifer Angeloro Photography we are in full portrait season, and loving every minute! It is such a pleasure to meet so many different families from all over the globe that come to southwest Florida for their beach family portraits.
If you are planning for your family portraits on the beach, there are things you should take into consideration. What will your family be wearing? what time of day should your family be photographed? What poses or portraits do you need to capture? By planning and coordinating before your portrait session, you will be guaranteeing smooth sailing throughout the beach portrait process.
What to wear
Family beach portraits are a fun experience. Poses can be done sitting in the sand, leaning against driftwood and maybe even dipping your toes in the water. This being said, it is a great idea to wear clothing that will be appropriate and comfortable in many different poses. Color schemes that are harmonious and matching can bring your portrait session to the next level. If you would like some inspiration on what to wear, check out this family beach session on our blog.
Time of day
Lighting plays a factor when plan for your family beach portraits. for optimal lighting we suggest to have your portrait session an hour after the sun rises, or an hour before sunset. This is known at the golden hour and produces beautiful blue skies as well as a good chance for sunset portraits.
Poses and Prints
Once you have your clothing and session time chosen, think about what poses you most want to see captured, as well as places you will be hanging your portraits. If grandma and grandpa are joining your family photograph, it would be great to note that you will need a pose with them and the grandchildren. Maybe your teenager will be a senior in high school, so a couple extras of just them would be great for graduation announcements.
If you have a location in your house where your new family photographs go say, above a fireplace or over a couch, it is great to notify your portrait photographer. This way they can prepare and shoot accordingly to your portrait needs.
Many of our poses and portraits work great with the specialty products we offer. We love to photograph beautiful candid’s in addition to our customary family portraits, and these look amazing as canvas gallery wraps and larger portraits. The texture of the canvas adds the extra artistic touch to these prints.
Planning your family beach portraits can appear taxing. But when you plan out what your family will wear, the time of day you would like your portrait session to take place, and the beautiful and creative poses and portraits you would like from your custom beach photography session, it will be easy as a piece of Bubble Room cake

Our Captiva Island Photographer captured this beautiful families beach portraits at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, Florida.
South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island offers beautiful locations for creative family photography. We started this beach family photography session on the green grass of the golf course. This offered great views of palm trees which frame the portraits very nicely. We then headed over to do family portraits at the beach.
If you ever wonder what you should wear for beach portrait clothing, look no further than this well dressed family! The colors match so well with Captiva Islands natural surroundings. What they chose to wear for their beach portrait clothing added another level of creativity to family portraits on the beach.
