South Seas Resort Wedding Photographers on Captiva Island

Wedding Photographers shooting at South Seas Resort on Captiva Island, Florida can expect only one thing in common between the various weddings they photograph — it’s, more than likely, going to be a destination wedding. This is where the commonality ends. South Seas Resort weddings can be large formal events at the Captiva Ballroom, President’s Room, or the Sea Pearl Room next to the Butterfly Garden, or an intimate ceremony on Sunset Beach or King’s Crown Lawn. Another fantastic Captiva Island destination wedding location is ‘Tween Waters, where we’ve photographed many times.

Our Bride and Groom, Tamra and Steve, choose a small wedding ceremony near Sunset Beach on Captiva Island. While we could not see the sunset on this particular evening, the stunning Altocumulus Billow clouds made for a great photographic back drop. Yes, I did look up the type of cloud!!

If you are looking for a unique wedding idea, check out the photo of this Bride’s non-traditional, bead bouquet as an alternative to traditional flowers.  This bouquet, like the wedding photos, will last forever.

Sanibel Island Photographer and Captiva Island Photographers at South Seas Resort

We met the Cariveau family for a photography session during their vacation at the South Seas Resort back in March.  Being Captiva Island Photographers in the Spring time is beautiful thing! The temperature was just right with the water still cool enough to provide the perfect sea breeze to keep everyone comfortable. The breeze did present some challenges for getting photos without hair blowing all over, but that’s not unexpected for beach photography.

Above is one of my favorite photographs from their portrait session. With the two little ones in the background playing and proud parents posing in front of the fantastic Captiva Island beach view. It does not get much better than this… Clearly they are a very blessed family!

The South Seas Resort is just past some of Captiva Island’s famous restaurants, The Mucky Duck, The Bubble Room and The Mad Hatter! Many visitors from off-island come just for the restaurants, but the best Captiva attraction (in and out of peak season) is a leisurely stroll on the tropical peaceful beach. Captiva’s beach is like a different world compared to the party scene of Fort Myers Beach…

Captiva Island Photographer – Weddings too!

We’ve been photographing out on Captiva Island, South Seas Resort and ‘Tween Waters quite a bit lately! And what better place for a Wedding Photographer and Family Photographers to work! It’s great to see Blind Pass open to the Gulf of Mexico again too.

For this photo shoot we met Mike, Khan, Justin and Ashley at South Seas for family portraits at sunset. While we couldn’t exactly see the tropical-island sun as it was setting this time, it did create some beautiful pink, purple and blue clouds… The evening on Captiva’s Beach was very tranquil and relaxing — its sometimes easy to forget you are actually working!

South Seas Resort Captiva Island Florida Photographer – Family Photography

Looking at online photos of the South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, you can’t tell just how large the property is. When we met up with Christy and Ron for their Family Photography, we drove over a mile from the gatehouse to South Seas’ Bayside Marina. We started with family portraits at the T Dock and worked our way to Sunset Beach, which, as you can see in the second photograph below, lived up to its name!

It’s always great having repeat clients like Christy and Ron.  They now have a new addition to the family since the last time we photographed their Captiva Island vacation!





South Seas Island Resort is located at 5400 Plantation Road, Captiva Island, Florida 33924.
