Elizabeth & David
6am, the alarm clock rings. I turn over and immediately check the weather. Rain. Rain. and more Rain. This is the part of the story where MOST photographers call their client and say “so sorry, we need to reschedule.” BUT this wasn’t a normal engagement session and I am certainly not a normal photographer! Elizabeth and David only had a short window of time to have their engagement photos captured before David had to return to Ohio. David bravely serves our country in the Air Force (thus the limited time part).
SO you see my dilemma. Now of course, I always do whatever it takes for my #cdpcouples so rain, or no rain we were determined to make it work!
Elizabeth and I had chatted back and forth on ideas for the location of their engagement photos. I, of course, have been watching way too many Hallmark movies this season (if that’s even possible) and wanted to recreate that warm and fuzzy feeling. She mentioned that she lived in the Dade City area and I immediately knew the perfect place! Downtown Dade City is such a beautiful + quaint town, which made the perfect backdrop for their romantic engagement photos. The Bricks. The Architecture. It was perfection.
From the minute I stepped out of the car, I knew that these two were going to SLAY their session. Elizabeth and David have such a sweet connection. David absolutely adores Elizabeth. He is so attentive to her, and truly puts her needs first. The way that these two look at each other is so genuine and real. It’s like they have known each other their whole lives and accept every little detail about one another. They can be goofy and serious. They know how to savor each moment they have together, because they know that all too soon they will be separated by thousands of miles again. Years of practiced goodbyes will be coming to an end soon when they are married, and I am so happy to be able to play a small part in capturing this sweet time in their lives.
Congratulations to Elizabeth + David on their engagement! I know that they will have a beautiful and lasting marriage ahead of them!
