During their entire engagement session around Dinky Dock and Rollins College in Winter Park, Caitlin and Anthony were just glowing. Non-stop smiles, non-stop giggling and kisses. They were so much fun to photograph! We took pictures around every corner and every turn, they were up for anything! One of the best parts of the session was at Dinky Dock when two ducks were constantly following them around. They even ended up in a picture perfect moment, swimming behind Caitlin and Anthony as they were standing in the water holding each other. I told these two that they’ll need something duck themed for their wedding or for their home!
Betty and Jay are just too adorable and fun, I literally could not stop taking their photos! This usually happens each time I do an engagement session but we were seriously running out of sunlight!
When I meet my clients in person for the first time after talking with them through email, sometimes in a span of over a year or more, it’s always such a great moment. Not only am I excited to get out and take some brand new photos, but I am thrilled just to finally meet my couples or families! So spending time with Christine and Brandin for their engagement session in Winter Park recently was just as awesome as I knew it would be. These two are so in love and completely adorable. All they need is each other. Whether they are laughing and giggling away, or enjoying a quiet moment together, they are forever inseparable and that is such a special relationship to have.

What an amazing afternoon we had with such a rewarding outcome – a collection of very beautiful engagement photos! Christine and Brandin, I can’t wait to see you both very soon![/pullquote]
As with any session, especially if you haven’t had a photo session with a photographer before, the first ten minutes or so can honestly feel a little awkward. I always find myself telling my clients about this. For example, you might not know how you would like to pose, or when to look at the camera and when not to, but you just need to get warmed up first. Soon enough you are practically dancing around and that is exactly what happened with Christine and Brandon. In no time at all, the three of us were skipping around the Rollins College campus in a happy, photo-taking adventure, racing against the clouds and chasing the sun.
After every photo session I do, I get a wave of energy afterwards which lasts for hours. Sometimes I might have started the session a little tired from the day but as soon as I get going, I am in my zone. The power of love (am I hearing an echo of Celine Dion in my ears) between two people makes me so happy to capture and it’s precisely why I love my job. The smiles and gazes between Brent and Eileen were amazing! They were here with family from all over the country to celebrate their recent wedding in September. We only had about thirty minutes to take family photos and another thirty minutes for portraits of just Eileen and Brent. We worked fast as the sun began to set over the beautiful grounds of the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes, before the family’s dinner reservation. I am so pleased with our results and these are just a few family moments plus some magical pauses between Eileen and Brent that evening. I truly hope you both enjoy these images and your first year as a joyfully married couple!
