I had the pleasure of photographing Govi and Alex’s Engagement Session at Blue Springs State Park. For centuries, the spring area was home for Native Americans. Blue Rock Springs is the largest spring on the St. Johns River, Blue Spring is a designated Manatee Refuge and the winter home (mid-November through March) to a growing population of West Indian Manatees. to say that we had a great time being there and getting to photograph would be an understatement. So much so- we even grabbed lunch at my favorite vegan spot after!
Govi and Alex met During pharmacy/dental school at a social event in Gainesville and were friends for 3 years before they became a couple. They truly are the perfect match. Govi proposed to Alex during a hike at the summit of a mountain in Croatia overlooking the Mediterranean ocean. Rose petals were flying everywhere due to the wind and a friend captured the moment for them. Being adventure lovers, we choose an outdoor setting that fit their personalities and also their passions for the outdoors. We decided to photography their engagement session at Blue Springs state park during the sunrise to catch the perfect golden lighting. This was my first time photographing there and I went straight to Instagram to see other examples of shoots done at the springs– which got me super excited! The lighting was just incredible and the sun shone through the mature trees. I loved how they both arrived super stylish and glamorous! It created a perfect reflection of them as a couple; two driven professionals who are fun and adventurous.
Hope you enjoy their sneak peek! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding later this year!
