I was pleasantly surprised by this rustic winter woods engagement! In typical Florida fashion, we had to reschedule once due to rain… and then were greeted with gloomy overcast skies (on the bright side, at least there was no rain) on the day of. My creative heart lives for that golden hour light, but what was lacking in golden, glowy light was certainly made up for by colorful trees and the most beautiful sky at the end of the evening!
I just love how down to earth all of my couples are! Dante and Aly are high school sweethearts who met their junior year (😍😍😍) and have been together for over 6 years now! Aly didn’t bat an eyelash walking the through narrow, pine-needle covered trails, in her dress and sandals…and Dante was such a gentleman leading the way; knocking down tall grass and moving aside any brush ahead of her along the way! They didn’t even hesitate when I told them I had found a beautiful flowering tree, a couple of minutes walk through the woods. I had so much fun photographing them among hundreds of purplish/pink blossoms! And the best surprise of all came at the end, when the sun tucked behind the trees and turned the whole sky the most beautiful shade of pale pink! 💕
