When I met Shea and Chase for their engagement session we decided to get some appetizer and drinks before heading over to Washington Oaks for photos. I loved getting to know them in a relaxed environment and listening to their love story. They giggled as they told me they met over a dating App, and how her dad almost immediately offered him a job in their family business after dating just a short while. From there we talked about their proposal (y’all he proposed at a wine and paint event and it was the cutest) and their wedding day. The bride and groom were getting married on the very property where they would start building their forever home next year. *Que all the “awes.”*
To say their engagement session did not go as planned would be an understatement. A surprise storm rolled in off the Atlantic and our beautiful location became dark dreary way sooner than we had intended. I was so bummed but I loved seeing how the two of them just rolled with the punches, happily made the best of it, and kept each other laughing through our shortened session.
Finally, their wedding day rolled around. Choosing your Wedding in North Florida during the fall is so beautiful. The weather always ends up being “just right.” We got really lucky with mild temperatures and beautiful sunlight during their formal portraits. Though we would have wished for just a smidge less during their ceremony! Shea rolled up to the aisle in her grandfather’s classic car and then her daddy walked her down the aisle to a very emotional groom. In fact, both the bride and groom were pretty emotional during the entire ceremony. It was so very sweet listening to them recite their vows and knowing that they meant every word. If that wasn’t sweet enough, instead of doing candles or sand, they decided to celebrate their unity by planting a pecan tree in their front yard.
Congratulations Shea and Chase! I am so glad you choose me as your photographer and I hope you had a blast on your honeymoon!!
