Guestbook for Simple Elegant Weddings
5.Katlin & Kasey(non-registered)
We had out Dream wedding on Bowditch Beach in Ft. Myers Florida.

Simple Elegant Weddings did an Amazing job!

April (who i worked with) was FANATASTIC I would reccomend her to anyone! She always got right back to my e-mails (even last night on a sunday,) because I couldnt get my payment to go thru for our pictures.

Lorraine our photgrapher did an AMAZING job and re-created some of the shots i sent her before hand. If i had to do it all over again I would definetly use simple elegant weddings again. They were helpful in everyway!

Thanks guys :)
4.Stacy & David(non-registered)
What was your favorite wedding photo? Our favorite wedding photo was when Lorraine had David hold me up in the air and the sunight was right, and the water looked amazing. She did amazing work with the shadows and got a few shots mid air so we could see what we liked best.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? She was all over the place, but I did not notice her during the ceremony at all! But the pictures are there! She got great shots of the guests and they did not even know it! All of the poses and candid shots were great! And of course the action ones! She was so easygoing and great to work with.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? In our wedding package we picked, we had Lorriane for about 90 minutes with all of her expertise and great ideas.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Lorriane was great getting us all moved around, she was laughing with us and very fun, which made it easy for my husband to smile. She was very flexible and made all of the shots work out, better than I had imagined possible!

Having a wedding from so far away was a scary thought until I found April and her staff. From the first call until we left for our honeymoon, they were perfect! April and Susie helped me every step of the way in choosing my venue, decor, bouquets, music and all the little extras which I had no clue would be awaiting us upon our arrival. April did create my dream wedding! Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? Wow! Where do I start. April suggested the time for our ceremony which ended up being perfect. I had selected a location for our ceremony and she also suggested that we possibly think of relocation due to the construction and lack of parking due to this. We took her advice and it ended up being the option we shoudl have chose from the beginning. We woudl have never known about this had she not been so familiar with the area, which is another reason I am so happy we went with a local planner to the Sanibel area. April offered many tips along the way and after a couple times of having her detal them out for me, I started just telling her to go ahead because I knew it would be perfect, I had no doubt and it was! She gave me tips on hair and make due to the heat and humidity. The tip for wedding flowers for this time of year was one of the best. She gave me great tips on each of her photographers which helped me in choosing who was right for me. The very best was the reminder and tip for our guests to stay hydrated due to the extensive head. They even brough bug spray! Wisdom does not begin to describe April and her staff, they are . They are very experienced with the area, venues an what a wedding day shoud consist of My planner was amazing! I actually called April expecting to be a Bridezilla because of being so far away and not knowing what to expect but from the first moment I spoke with her, I knew I was in good hands. She made me feel so at ease and stressed many times that she is not just a 9 - 5 planner and I could contact her any time of the day. I never called or sent a email that I did get an immediate response. There was no reaason to even think of being a Bridezilla, April had it covered! I would honestly say there is NO dollar value comparable to what April Kelley meant to me! She was well worth every penny spent :)

"April and her Staff at Simple Weddings SWFL made all of my planning and requests for a dream wedding a reality on Sanibel Island. The arch was beautiful, and they allowed me to add all of the personal touches that my mom and I had made. My photographer, Lorraine, was amazing! She is SO personable, had great attention to detail in getting every single shot I had asked for in the small window of time we had, and was so sweet and calming in the whirlwind of it all. Thank You"

Lorraine was a fabulous photographer & so much more for my wedding. Being the niece of a well respected event photographer in Pittsburgh I have always been leery of other photographers, Lorraine more than exceeded expectations.

I planned my wedding from my new home in England, as you could imagine, from 4,000 miles wedding planning can be quite stressful. although she was not my wedding coordinator, she became my primary contact during my months of long distance planning.

No wedding is planned without a few hiccups and ours was no different. Through lots of changes and my email account getting hacked, Lorraine was there every step of the way making sure things went smoothly on the big day. She was always prompt in responding to emails & went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable with the stages of planning through to the reception shots. She even found a classic camaro for some pre-wedding shots.

We had no idea of Lorraine's nationality when we booked our wedding package, but it was one of many pleasant surprises. My future in-laws certainly appreciated her American to English translations!

In short Lorraine is a great photographer with the eye, instincts, and background to cover any event or sitting you can throw at her, she didn't even bat an eyelash when we asked her to shoot with alligators or skunks!
