A lot of couples see it as unimportant but taking the time for relaxed engagement photos is so romantic and special. Not only does it let you get to know your photographer and be comfortable with her before your wedding day, but it lets you take the time to celebrate this huge step you’re taking with just the two of you. No stress of hurrying to get ready for the ceremony or reception. Just the two of you loving each other.
Take Engagement Photos in Meaningful Places
This Atlantic Beach neighborhood is really special to Bia and Conor, since it’s where Conor grew up. They’ve spent a lot of sweet time here together and it makes their photos even more meaningful.
Bia is such a strong, beautiful woman (from Brazil originally) and Conor is a sweet, quiet Florida boy. The blend of them together is magic. There’s a good reason that opposites attract. We make each other stronger.
The Ocean is a Timeless Backdrop
The ocean is the perfect backdrop for timeless photos. It’s beautiful and wild, and no matter how many decades (or millennia) pass, we are all drawn to it. If you include nature in your photos, they’ll never go out of style (though if you have a mullet haircut, you’re on your own. lol).
Sunset is Perfect for Romantic, Relaxed Photos
Sunset is one of the most beautiful times to take photos at the beach. For the brave early birds like Carrie and David, sunrise is epically beautiful too. The sun here is Florida can be so strong but it’s perfectly soft and warm when it rises and sets. I love the relaxed, romantic feeling it adds to engagement photos. Be sure to check to see what sunset time will be when you’re scheduling your session.
The End of a Session is the Sweet Spot
The photos I get at the end of an engagement session are often the sweetest. The couple is totally used to me and my goofiness by then. They trust that I will tell them what they need to do and they don’t have to worry about anything but enjoying each other.
