Monika and Patrick showed up with macaroons for me and sweets for my little ones on the day of their engagement session. They knew we had just returned from shooting in Paris and wanted me to have a sweet reminder, and to thank me for the time we were about to have. That thoughtful and sweet gesture should tell you everything you need to know about them. And the photos below will tell you of their love for each other.
See below for Fun. Adventure. Hand Fishing for Koi. And Kissing in the Rain.
David just wanted to make sure that all of his friends and family had fun. He actually said that he didn’t want it to be a “bummer”.
No worries, David, it was not even close.
All of the sentimental details, all of the vibrant colors and handmade paper flowers, the good drinks and food and a sweets table to die for. How could you go wrong?
Most importantly, they had Love. And Fun.
That’s what we love in our couples and that’s what we look for when we read all of the stories that couples share with us. Because anyone can shoot details and tablescapes. But to be a part of an amazing experience, one that is different every single time we shoot and to be around people that are real and in love and happy and having fun and get what we do, that is sweet and pure joy right there.
We are SO excited for the wedding of Anh & Scott tomorrow at The Vault venue in Tampa! This engagement session shows that it’s never too late to get in that engagement session with us before the big day! We just had this gorgeous session with them on MondayThe memories of working together will be fresh in our minds and the excitement fresh in our hearts!
The Ringling Museum is one of our favorite Florida locations! Be sure to see it for yourself in person, it’s just magical!!
