South Pointe Park // One Year Anniversary Portrait Session

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you the reason why Seth & Olivia wanted to do their one year anniversary shoot at South Pointe Park and why it was SO important to them. You can check it out here. Basically, their experience with their wedding photography wasn't what they thought it would be and they wanted to make sure that this time around they got the photos that truly captured them as the loving and connected couple that they are.

We spent some time deciding where to do the shoot and South Pointe Park was again the winner! It truly has a bit of everything and had the beachy-Miami feel with epic scenery that they wanted for some amazing wall prints for their home. Last minute she decided to ditch her beautiful wedding gown and Seth his suit, for something softer and more relaxed, which I LOVED!

After booking several months in advance, the shoot happened during our non-stop South Florida rain which was INSANE. However, the skies parted and we just got a light blessing at the beginning of the shoot to send us off on a good foot :) 

ENJOY the set of photos. They are some of my favs <3

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden Engagement Shoot // Cal & Thais

I met Thais in college and Thais met Cal at a cool wine spot in Wynwood. These two are a perfect example of why South Florida is amazing because he's Scottish and she's Brazilian :) When it's meant to be, it's meant to be. No and, if or buts.

Funny enough, none of us had actually been to Fairchild even though we all spend a lot of time in the Old Cutler/Pinecrest area. So it was nice to take a couple hours to explore the grounds and photograph in places as we saw them evolve. Pro tip: get there as soon as they open so you can shoot with no one (almost no one) there :) The park is IMMENSE. So if any other couple wants to explore the other half of the park with me, send me an email and lets make it happen!
