Beach Engagement Session

I love nothing more then a beach engagement session. It’s true. Ask anyone. I find creativity, peace, and happiness there. And especially this summer, on St Pete Beach, we have been having insane sunsets. Like, the inland storms blow over some massive cloudscapes that never accumulate to storms but rather just give us a beautiful backdrop and an amazing breeze. Woohoo! Florida summer for the win. I was beyond excited when Meghan reached out to me and asked if they could add an engagement session to their wedding package. Of course!!! Engagement sessions are such a great way to get to know each other before the big day as well as figure out what type of photos you like. I also always tell my brides to try and schedule their trial hair and makeup the same day so they can get a feel for how the hair and makeup will look, feel, and photograph. Meghan had hers done by Michele Renee the studio. Meghan and James are both in the military. In fact that’s how they met. And after their December wedding {at the Post Card Inn} they are both getting deployed. I feel very fortunate that they chose me to not only capture  their wedding but also their cuteness during their beach engagement session on St Pete beach. Meghan and James, great times! I hope these photos make you smile lots. And I can’t wait to see you again in December at the Post Card Inn. Here are some of my favorites from their Florida beach engagement session.
