Englewood Beach located about 30 minutes south of Sarasota is a great Gulf Coast Beach that is not as crowded as St Pete Beach or Clearwater Beach. As well as being a great vacation destination it is ideal for destination with the Gulf View Grill Restaurant which has a nice room with a “view of the gulf” (hence the name) for the reception. They also have a nice outdoor bar as well with the public parking for the beach right across the street.
The Ocean seems to have more color to it as you are further away from the major metropolitan areas. We could see the different shades of blue, turquoise, aqua, which is something we rarely see in the beaches closer to Tampa Bay.
This was a destination wedding of a couple from Ohio, Ashley & Bobby Rogers. The groom is a drone pilot as well so it was great as he knew how to react with the drone in his face, and having a beautiful bride didn’t hurt either. We provided the photography and ground level video as well as the aerial video. For our Sarasota Videographer page for more of our weddings in this beautiful part of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
We shot this with the X-Star Premium by Autel Robotics, which we just absolutely love for weddings. The picture quality is simply the best of the smaller quad copters. We could use the Inspire Pro X5, but that is just too big and bulky for doing weddings.
