Robert and Julaine’s Engagement Session at Cypress Grove Estate Park
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
Victoria and Devant’s Lake Eola Proposal Photography
Most people tended to their BBQ’s during fourth of July. We, however, got to photograph Stevan, a US Marine Corp as he proposed to his now Fiance Victoria while vacationing in Orlando. We posed as a Groupon deal that he just happened to snag up to capture some vacation portraits of them together. We did the session at Lake Eola, and yes, it was extremely busy with the Fouth of July spirit oozing at every corner! We manage to find some quiet spots throughout the lake for these super cute photos before we started our individual portraits of them. Little did Victoria know that Stevan was down on one knee behind her while she got her portraits taken.
Kerem and Derya’s Orlando Proposal Photography
We had the honor of being able to capture Kerem and Derya’s Orlando Proposal Photography two weeks ago. Proposals are always a blast and super adventurous to photograph. We often have to hide in random places and ninja around the venue to remain incognito. Kerem really went all out to surprise his bride to be by gathering family and friends from near and far and hiring wedding planner, Courtney Bailey (www.wedinthecity.com) to make sure the proposal was flawless. Best of all, She said YES!
