Nature Engagement Photos with Phara and Marcel

Nature Engagement Photos

This session consists of nature engagement photos for those who love nature, color, and a good view! Anne Kolb Nature Center has it all and we had the chance to take it all in during Phara and Marcel’s beautiful engagement session in Hollywood, Florida.

P+M

It’s a classic tale of love at first sight. Phara and Marcel met at their church. She was part of the welcoming booth when Marcel, a new church member, walked in. They shook hands but couldn’t shake the feeling that they were meant to be. And they were! Now engaged and getting married at the end of May, these two are saying “I do” at the place that brought them together.

Anne Kolb Nature Center

This was my first time visiting the Anne Kolb Nature Center and sure won’t be my last! I mean, what’s there not to love! You have access to the intracoastal waterway, a tower that overlooks Hollywood, beautiful walking paths, and greenery all around. And for me, I also had the chance to photograph the lovely couple, which just made my visit all the more special.

A Maternity Session at Quiet Waters Park

A Maternity Session at Quiet Waters Park

Yay!!! I had the pleasure of photographing this maternity session at Quiet Waters Park with two of my favorite people! Two years ago, I photographed Lynsie and Angel’s wedding at the Palm Beach Zoo.

The Journey

Now, I’m so excited for them as they travel on another new and exciting journey: parenthood. The Cancel family is growing! They are expecting their baby boy this month and that day couldn’t come soon enough. Lynsie says it’s been a pretty easy and smooth pregnancy. Well, aside from not being able to see her feet or put on her own shoes haha!

Baby Enzo

Baby Enzo is going to be one lucky, loved, and chilled out baby. Both Lynsie and Angel are such laid-back, calm, and patient (almost zen-like) people, that I foresee him being the same way.

And he already has a sibling and playmate: the Cancel’s new baby kitten (unfortunately, not photographed during this session). Watch out, kitty! Babies like those fluffy tails!

The Session

The sun didn’t want to come out and play with us. On the plus side, we had beautiful even lighting, no rain, and even some cool-looking clouds. Not to mention beautiful fields, surrounded by tropical plants and trees, and a lake.

And these two. I mean, seriously. Could two people be more beautiful?! Not to mention, awesome?! The session was so much fun and natural. Aside from a few poses, most of our session comprised of these two interacting, loving each other, and Lynsie’s baby bump. I couldn’t ask for a better session.

Scroll through the pictures below to view Lynsie and Angel’s maternity session at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach.

Thank you, Lynsie and Angel, for allowing me to continue to be a part of your lives. I am so blessed to be a part of these sweet memories (you know I had to!) and I look forward to meeting baby Enzo soon!

Celebrating 10 Years of Love

Celebrating 10 Years of Love at Morikami in Delray Beach

Celebrating 10 years of love at Morikami in Delray Beach with two of the most fantastic people I know.

Beginnings

I met Andrea about two years ago. Since then, we’ve been a team, not only having photographed weddings together, but also starting life in Florida. Both of us had just moved down here in 2016 when we met and were foreigners in our new home state. And we were both restarting our photography businesses in a new area. Anyone who has ever owned a business knows just how difficult this is. It’s not a fun task but what a difference it makes going through it with someone who understands what you’re going through. We were and are each other’s support, cheerleaders, and shoulders to whine on.

The Husband

Through our friendship, I met Al, coolest guy ever and Andrea‘s husband. He, like his wife, is super witty, level-headed, and intelligent. These two have the biggest hearts, welcoming personalities, and are so down to earth. And you’d never guess that they’ve been married for ten years! They’re so in love now that I cannot even imagine what their ‘honeymoon’ phase was like!

A Private Couple

Like myself, Andrea is not a fan of being in front of the camera, and neither is her husband (nor mine). You’d never know as they are super photogenic. It took some persuading to get Al to agree to this session. Luckily, it was their 10-year anniversary so Andrea had that working in her favor!

And they like their privacy so PDA (public display of affection) is a no-no. That being said, there were a few surprises in store for Andrea during our session (No hints. You’ll have to scroll down and see for yourself).

I Mean Really… !

Not a fan of being in front of the camera? Psh. Whatever. Look at them! I wish I was as good in front of the camera as these two! The whole session felt so natural, and I loved how their love just shone in every image!

Celebrating an anniversary, engagement, birthday, or just life?! I’d love to celebrate with you: Sweet Memories Photography

A Worth Avenue Engagement Session: Chelsea and Robbie

A Worth Avenue Engagement Session: Chelsea and Robbie

This Worth Avenue engagement session has it all: puppies, beauty, charm, elegance, and most importantly, LOVE.

Because Chelsea and Robbie have two awesome and adorable dogs, and I am a dog-lover, we began our session at a local dog park to capture some moments with the fur-babies. Unfortunately, this was a short-lived session. Moose and Wizard (cutest names ever) were so excited that they not only couldn’t sit still, but they got muddy within minutes (after just being professionally bathed the night before)! Luckily I work quick and we were able to steal a few perfectly cute shots before heading over to our second location.

 

Worth Avenue Engagement Session | West Palm Beach wedding photographer

On-Site

West Palm Beach is known for its awesome parks, high-end shops, and entertainment. But what I love most about it is its beautiful parks and photo locations.

Fortunately for me, I got the chance to photograph this lovely couple at one of my favorite spots: Worth Avenue. Beautiful architecture, hidden gardens, and detailed stairwells, it’s a photographer’s dream.

And when you have a couple like Chelsea and Robbie, it doesn’t get any better!

The Couple

Chelsea: a pharmacy technician, makeup-lover, dog and turtle-mama, Potterhead, and Disney princess.

Robbie: entrepreneur, dog and turtle-daddy, super laid back and chill, and Chelsea’s Prince Charming.

These two have been dating since 2013 and going strong! The way Robbie looks at Chelsea, and the smile Chelsea gets when she looks at Robbie … there are no words, well maybe except for pure love!

The Big Day

C+R are tying the knot in November at only the most appropriate venue for two animal lovers: the Palm Beach Zoo. And needless to say that I’m super excited, not only to be celebrating with these two, but to be photographing at one of my favorite venues. It’s going to be amazing and we are counting down the days!

Until then, enjoy taking a sneak peek into their Worth Avenue engagement session:
