Romantic Kraft Azalea Garden Engagement

Kathryn + Jon

The Kraft Azalea Gardens have got to be the MOST romantic and Pride & Prejudice resembling gardens in the Orlando area. I have lived here in Florida my entire life and still find myself surprised by all the insanely gorgeous sceneries my clients seem to find. Kathryn and Jon started off their engagement session more laid back and casual - so we did all the climbing, running, and dancing around first. Then they changed it up and got a bit more formal at the end! Kathryn’s long black dress is to die for - especially matched with the cream colored columns and lush greenery.

Countryside Engagement

A long, long time ago, two girls grew up together…

— going to school, attending tea parties — and then these two girls grew up. One chased some dreams and became a photographer, the other found the love of her life. Last week these two girls got to reunite!

Ok, ok enough with the sappy stuff. Basically, it was the COOLEST thing ever to get to photograph my childhood friend’s, Victoria, engagement! And in our home town of Seville, FL nonetheless. We walked around Victoria’s grandparents property, talked about the office, and I got some genuine laughs out of Brian — who happened to actually have a ton of fun! Here are a few of my favorites…

Shipwrecked Sunrise

Josh and Ashley met 5 years ago while Ashley was traveling with her best friend around Europe.

He actually waited on Ashley and her friend, so of course the two girls went back the next day in hopes of Josh being there again. Spoiler alert, he was!! They decided to hang out and the rest is history. Ashley ended up moving to England to be with Josh where they spent the next 4 years. They recently moved back to her hometown of Palm Coast, Fl and after about 6 months of living in Florida, Josh proposed! They had spent the day at the beach then went off on a little walk where he popped the question. AND THAT’S NOT ALL. Josh had been in cahoots with Ashley’s mother to plan a surprise engagement party, in which they came home to that night.

So their engagement session was extra special — on a beach, walking around, laughing, kissing, and hugging. Being real, being in love, and being freaking adorable. I mean look at them!

St. Augustine Historic District Engagement

St. Augustine Historic District Engagement

These two oh my gosh. I met up with Jimmie and Hillary at the Kookaburra in downtown Saint Augustine for coffee before their engagement session. We mainly met there to get some AC before walking around the city cause Florida summer heat is NO JOKE. We had some delicious coffee (iced of course) and chatted about their love story before hitting the streets.
