Sonal and Nirav’s Engagement session

Sonal and Nirav’s Engagement session
The wedding season is here along with slowly increasing cooler weather. I have a ton of engagement sessions scheduled along with a handful of proposals over the holidays.
Wedding photography is becoming more and more circulated thanks to image driving social media. Wedding and engagement photography inspirations can be pulled up using Wedding Hashtags on Instagram or on Pinterest. Social media is such an integral part of everyone’s lives now and is how many of my couples discover my work!
That brings me to Sonal and Nirav, who reached out to me after discovering my work online.
Let me just tell you- it was Love at first site. We scheduled a meeting at a chic cafe in Winter Park to chat about her vision. We ended up speaking about our lives, laughing, sharing our love for travels and snapping pictures of our latte’s (she totally gets me!). Fast forward to our scheduled session and I felt like I was photographing old friends. We started the session at Kraft Azalea Garden early in the morning to catch the sunrise and then headed to Rollins College to photograph around the campus. The session continued the next day at one of my favorite locations- Disney’s Boardwalk and we caught a beautiful sunset!
They scheduled two engagement sessions back to back to get a wide variety of images and to fit in more outfit changes. It was TOTALLY worth it!
These images will be displayed at their Wedding this December in India!
So excited for them <3

Carolyn and Phil’s Bok Tower Gardens Engagement Session

Carolyn and Phil’s Bok Tower Gardens Engagement Session
Carolyn and Phil's Bok Tower Gardens Engagement Session
Bok tower garden is such a beautiful location for engagement and portrait sessions. I was thrilled when Carolyn and Phil decided to have our session there last week. Bok Tower Gardens is centrally located between Tampa and Orlando among rolling hills of citrus in beautiful & historic Lake Wales, Florida and is a National Historic Landmark. The gardens are filled with exotic greenery, water features, and unique architecture.
 
Carolyn and Phil are the sweetest people that you will ever meet. They are truly best friends and I wanted to capture their love story and friendship authentically. We are having an unusually warm winter this year here in Florida. I’m pretty sure that all of the plants are confused as to what season it is because it is starting to look a lot like spring. Flowers are in bloom everywhere. We used this fact to our advantage and got to photograph with some beautiful floral backgrounds.
 
There is an orange farm right before the main entrance of Bok Tower Gardens that is just beautiful. Across the street from the orange farm are fields of grass and pine trees. We ended our shoot there for some sunset pictures and used some creative lighting techniques to create an ethereal effect. I just love how these images came out and loved that I got to work with such a beautiful couple!

Samantha and Austin’s Downtown Church Street Engagement Photography

Samantha and Austin’s Downtown Church Street Engagement Photography

Orlando Engagement Photographers

Church Street in Downtown Orlando has always been a bit of a tricky place to photograph due to the endless crowds dining at the many restaurants there or just passing through. It is often considered as the heart of downtown orlando.
However when I heard that Samantha and Austin’s wedding theme was a 1920’s look, I knew that the historic architecture that makes downtown Church street so special would be the perfect backdrop for their engagement pictures. The area is deeply rooted in Orlando’s history and was developed around the City’s original train station. The Old Orlando Railroad Depot, dedicated in January of 1890 is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a local historic landmark.
Our engagement session started right at sunset. The lighting was lovely and added that golden glow and light flares to the pictures. My assistant Luis helped tow around my lighting as we jumped on over to photograph outside the Ballroom at Church Street; a potential venue for the couples upcoming wedding. 
 
The funny thing is, I was editing these pictures while watching “Singing in the Rain”. How befitting!
Hope you enjoy their sneak peek.

Disney’s Caribbean Resort Portrait session

Disney’s Caribbean Resort Portrait session

I always feel extra special when my clients asks me to photograph them again and again. This year has been a blessing with repeat clients and Nicole and Richards are one of those clients. I had the pleasure of shooting their Disney’s Caribbean Resort Portrait session last week.

I photographed their engagement earlier this year at Disney’s Spring, and had the pleasure of photographing them during their honeymoon as well! The beautiful high school sweet hearts tied the knot on a Carnival cruise last week in an intimate ceremony surrounded by close friends and family. By coincidence, my mother and I was on vacation on The Royal Caribbean cruise that same week and saw their ship while docked in Mexico! Both of them really convinced me to try cruising when I photographed their engagement. They Spent a few days at the Disney’s Caribbean Resort and I was there to photograph such a special time in their lives.

This was the first time i’ve beet at the resort, and was amazing with how large the resort is. Two of my favorite moments from this session was when a older gentleman gave us access to take some pictures on the dock and even allowed us to go on a boat docked there for some pictures. Another one was when they took their shoes off to sit by the Jacuzzi for some pictures. There was a guy sitting close by in the Jacuzzi the entire time so I had to ninja my way around him 🙂

There are tons of places to walk around and photograph in. I want to congratulate the happy couple on finding their soul mates!
