Robert and Julaine’s Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate Park

Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate

Summer is almost here! This means that we are now entering the wedding photography season. I’m so fortunate to live in Orlando where there are so many amazing parks and lakes. There is an abundance of beautiful photo shoot locations here. After all, Florida is called the sunshine state and Orlando is called the city of Beautiful!

I love to incorporate sunsets in my photo shoots whenever possible. Golden hour lighting (1 hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset) has that ethereal warm glow that looks gorgeous in photographs. I try to schedule all of my photo shoots in the mornings or early evenings. That’s exactly what we did for Robert and Julaine’s Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate Park. We caught the gorgeous golden hour light!

Robert and Julaine came to Orlando for their vacation. They are both currently living in Jamaica but love to spend as much time as possible in Florida. Having family living throughout Florida gives them a great excuse to visit often. Robert had set up a surprise proposal for Julaine which he had arranged with Julaine’s family for months. I had the honor of photographing their engagement session just a couple of days after Robert proposed to Julaine. They are truly best friends who love to spend time in the outdoors and traveling. They wanted a natural setting for their engagement photos and had seen some images online that I had taken at Cypress Grove Estate Park. They fell in love with the idea of doing their engagement session there as well. Here is a quick sneak peek of their beautiful images

Custom Flash Drives for Photographers
Every little detail of our actions speaks volume of who we are. The more care and effort we put into something, the more thoughtful and put together we appear. As photographers, we have to send out a lot of Flash Drives with client images. Having a customized flash drive adds that extra special Oomph.
My welcome packages are fully customized to represent my brand, my passion for photography and the things I stand for. I’ve always been into style, textures and design, and I implement all three elements into my packages. In particular, I love having stylish and branded USB Flash Drives when sending out the digital images to clients. Here is a look at my Wooden Flash Drives available for my portrait and engagement clients. I change my styling from season to season and love the process of designing my packages.
The Drives that I use are by USB Memory Direct and can be viewed here.
Most of my sessions are done out in nature. I love beautiful natural backdrops for my sessions. I’m currently using colourful dried moss as a bed for my drives which adds to the organic feel of the wooden drive. Topped with a green bow and some branded collateral, it is a fun way to deliver a digital flash drive. Going the extra mile always pays off.
Stay inspired!

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

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.
