Laura + Brian’s Woodsy Engagement Session at Mead Botanical Garden in Winter Park, FL

Laura and Brian met in college, and spent their first few years together as friends bonding over their love of food, comedy and the Gators. They started officially dating towards the end of college, and continued to date as they entered into the adult world and learned to navigate their careers and new responsibilities. After dating for 4 years, Brian proposed in the most amazing way! After a leisurely boat ride around the lake, he proposed with a big banner and a beautiful ring. Needless to say they spent the evening celebrating with their family and close friends! As a couple, they love to support and encourage each other as they continue to grow and live life together!

MELINDA + FELIPE’S elopement portraits at disney’s boardwalk in kissimmee, fl

Disney’s BoardWalk is one of my favorite places to photograph at. The scenery is fun an relaxed, and the lighting is really pretty specially around sunset, and that is exactly what Melinda and Felipe were looking for for their elopement session.

Melinda and Felipe are madly in love and crazy for each other! As Melinda would explain it “Like all great soap opera romances, we met at the hospital where we worked together”. We asked them a little bit about their story and elopement and this is what they told us…

What was the overall theme and style of your wedding/elopement and how did you come up with it?

We eloped, so it was very intimate and personal. We chose Disney as the back drop, particularly the BoardWalk, because we have spent many vacations there as a family, but rarely experience it as a couple. And since we are kids at heart, it was a no-brainer!

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

The weather!!

If you could have changed|done something different about your wedding day what would it be?

We intended to make it an elopement; and be personal, but will have a small ceremony with our children on a separate occasion as they are central to our lives as well.

Any advice you would like to give to newly engaged couples?

Spend time together. Often times, we don’t need to speak…just listen.
Don’t sweat the small stuff; half the time the things we think are monumental are merely tiny bumps. And if you are in a “discussion” that seems like one of the “small stuffs” kiss your partner, laugh, make a funny face…just out of the blue. Guaranteed you won’t even remember what the “discussion” was about.

I love Melinda’s advice to newly weds and could not agree more!

I hope you have an amazing rest of your week.

See you soon,

NOELLA + PATRICK engaged

i am so excited to share noella and patrick’s engagement session! they met through mutual friends, and noella’s only requirement and question to her friend prior to setting up the date was if patrick had dogs, and he did so the rest is history, and they are just perfect for each other! noella is an interior designer, and had great props for this bohemian inspired beach engagement session at new smyrna beach. we had a great time styling it together, and wanted to choose 2 locations that best represented the couple since noella is an interior designer and patrick is a lawyer. that’s why we chose new smyrna beach and the sugar mill ruins. also, new smyrna beach is one of their favorite spots to visit so it was perfect to take their engagement photos there. the sugar mill ruins gave us a great background for a more polished look in contrast to the bohemian feel of the beach scene. i hope you enjoy the photos!
