A Halloween themed Wedding not a detail missed….. Cleopatra Photography {i do} Fort Myers Sydney & Berne Davis Center – Wedding Photography

omG!!!! so where to begin.. this day was soo much fun, different and full of little surprises…

Let me start by saying I had my first ever, early and on time Bride, and,  late…. Groomzilla (self proclaimed.. 😉 )

On his way the groom was pulled over ! Luckily he was let go, and made it on time for some awesome shots!

There were bystanders looking on at the blocked road, wondering what all the commotion was about…..

I had a great time, I love THEMED weddings and of course this one took the cake for creative….

from the cupcakes with dry ice to the horror flick seat table names… they did a great job at making this their day…. They didn’t just look in some wedding magazine and say “I want that….”

T, FYI is my hairdresser and one of my  long time friends, long time friend.. if that makes any sense….

I’m so glad to have met this couple and been asked to photograph such a cool wedding! what a breath of fresh air!!!

If immitation is the sincerest form of flattery… Copy this…. Cleopatra Photography {ROCK the DRESS} Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach Bridal Photography

Hi Everyone!!! SO…. here I am with the latest and greatest from the one and only beautiful K!!!

If you’re wondering why this post is titled what it is…  I’m just going to throw it right out there…. recently in browsing my competitions blogs etc… I started noticing a trend….

Yes, we all use the same locations… but I am me and they are them…

To all of my loyal clients and friends… You all know how much this disturbed me at first… but in the end… I am an artist…

 people emulate what they love right?

The title wasnt meant to be cocky… just making a point… If your going to outright copy me, have a little more couth and at least don’t post my exact same shots on your blog!

OK rant over!!! SOOOOO today was amazing! It even exceeded my expectations!

This chick is a straight up TROOPER! Getting some of these shots included running through the rain (dress hiked up and umbrella in hand!)

We were the hottest thing to happen in EVER at the Washabout Laundry mat in North Fort Myers!!!

Look for this girl in VOGUE on day my friends…

she’s got “IT”

K, as usual… you rocked my lense! Thank you so much for an amazing time…

DIVA’S UNITE!

xoxo – A

Enjoy…

Right before K got in the water…. these little girls ran up and were wondering why she was “so crazy” for putting her gorgeous dress in the ocean…. hilarious…

One day they’ll understand, or maybe they wont! hahaha

and last shot of the night….

The show goes on….. with more of K’s {ROCK the DRESS} session…. Cleopatra Photography – Bridal photographer Fort Myers and Naples

So with that being said.. enjoy more of K…

The newly-wed Mrs. T {ROCKS the DRESS} Cleopatra Photography – Fort Myers and Naples bridal photography Fort Myers and Naples “trash the dress” photography

Hello Hello!!!!

So can I just say I feel all out of sorts today because my sidekick is without a phone!!!! anywho…

Today I met with K to do her “Rock the dress” session…. originally we were calling these Trash the dress sessions…. but I don’t really think that describes what I do… or what this type of session really stands for…

In my mind, a Rock the dress session is all about showing off how amazing you look in that GOWN!!!

You spent less than a full day in it and its going to sit in a closet until you pass it on to your daughter…. I know…. I understand….

BUT before you send it off to the cleaners…

ROCK IT!

if your not exactly sure what I mean… you’ll know by the end of this post! 😉

So anyhow, I picked up K bright and early and we headed to the first spot… a field…

a crappy… cruddy… abandoned… “lot” if you will….

 When I saw it, I said… oh this is soooo perfect… and “dark” and even though I have never seen ANY of the twilight movies or the Harry Potter series for that matter…

I said… Ooooh thats so “twilight-ey” and perfect for her dress…

So we were off… Can I just say this girl knows how to WORK the camera!!!

it doesn’t take much direction from me to pull amazing images out of her! …. SOOO greatful for this lady!

Quick side note: I once had someone tell me…

“I would never do that in real life” referring to the way I was asking her to stand….

I asked her if she’d seen my website?

Her response,

“Yes”…

Mine…

“Then trust me.”

So after a quick run into Downtown Fort Myers we ran to our second location…

a “TOP SECRET” exclusive spot ladies and gents!

ask me how… I’ll make your photos stand out too;)
