-Door detail from the Chapel of Our Lady of Mercy – Boca Grande, Florida

I’ve been to Boca Grande several times to photograph weddings and the Island has several quaint “little white churches” that I’ve shot at. But, my path hadn’t crossed this particular chapel. Let me tell you…it was absolutely gorgeous!!! Designed in the Spanish style, it’s beautiful old wood doors were intricately detailed with metalwork and metal pulls and an old keyhole. So beautiful. I would love, Love, LOVE to shoot a ceremony at this church. It also has a little courtyard in front, lined with palm trees, a small fountain and beautiful sideyards for photos. I’d highly recommend it to any couples getting married in Boca Grande! And, it’s a short golfcart ride from the historic Gasparilla Inn! Love.

Here’s a little sneak peek of the most recent wedding I photographed in Boca Grande. More coming soon!


I had the pleasure of second-shooting a wedding in Nashville with my friend (and fellow Italy Girl) Kate of Kate Murphy Photography earlier this year. Betsy & Rob’s wedding was held at the historic Belle Meade Plantation in Nashville, Tennessee. Talk about gorgeous…from the beautiful old barns, to the sunlit grounds of the plantation to the STUNNING Vera Wang dress (I was drooling!), it was a gorgeous wedding for a sweet couple. Here’s just a selection of the shots from that day:
