One of my favorite parts about getting to know a new bride is hearing their engagement story. It’s one of the first things I ask, and I love what it reveals about my couples. On their anniversary, Brian took Shelby to the aquarium and then brought her home to a a fully decorated house that they had just bought together. Shelby walked in to find a timeline of photos of them together through out the years and followed them outside to a path of lanterns. The glowing lanterns then led her to an arch (handmade by her father) where Brian stood underneath waiting for her. It was there that he knelt down on one knee and asked Shelby to spend forever with him! So intimate and personal!!! 💕
Fast forward to September- I was so excited to meet Brian + Shelby for their engagement photos! They traveled all the way from St. Pete to beautiful Weeki Wachee River for a unique waterfront location. We followed small beaten trails through the mangroves, beautiful patches of woody trees and the tall marshy grass. And then we soaked up the last bits of sunlight on the rustic wooden pier. Could not have asked for a more beautiful evening!
