We think that it is appropriate on this very rainy day in PA, for us to share a little bit of Florida sunshine with you all! We had the excitement and honor of capturing Joy & Ryan’s engagement photos in Bradenton, FL!! Joy & Ryan are absolutely the best, and I’m positive that everyone that knows them, would say that their joy and enthusiasm for life and each other is contagious!
When we began planning for Joy & Ryan’s engagement photo session, we didn’t really have Florida on the radar, but as we discussed what type of location they’d be interested, and Joy mentioned that her family would be taking a trip to Florida this spring, the pieces just kind of started to fall into place. It’s always been a dream of mine to shoot in Florida, my family went there on vacation all throughout out my growing up years, and it just seemed SO right to capture photos of this lovely couple down there.
Emerson Point Preserve was an amazing place to shoot at! It was a mix of wooded trails, lots of Spanish moss (*sigh*), and plenty of rocky beach trails, every bit of this location seems to “scream” Joy & Ryan, as it was such a fun mix of beauty and adventure! We were excited as well since we only stumbled upon this location a few days before Joy & Ryan’s engagement photo session (thank you Google!).
Joy & Ryan, you all are fantastic, and we can’t wait for your wedding, coming soon! Thank you for going along with our wild ideas! We love how you two have such a deep love and respect for each other, and admire your joy and laughter together. Many Blessings, as you prepare for this next season!
