Liz and Paul - Engagement

We had the pleasure of photographing my brother Paul and soon to be sister-in-law, Liz in Florida. We flew to Marco Island, where my parents stay during the wintertime and met up with Paul, Liz and her parents. We began the shoot by taking them to a small fishing community called Goodland. We photographed them at a local outdoor bar with a lot of 'charm', called Stan's. To give you a little understanding of the character of this location, here is a link to their yearly Goodland Mullet Festival... check it out! The next day, we rented a boat and cruised around the islands, stopping along the way and taking portraits. What a blast! This is one of my favorite things to do in Florida... Being on the water is so relaxing. We ended the day on the beach at sunset, something that Liz really wanted for their engagement session. It couldn't have been a more georgous sunset. It was a calm and beautiful setting. This was also a great opportunity for Laura and I to photograph together. We worked really well together, as expected, but we had way more fun than we anticipated. Special thanks to my parents for putting us up and putting up with us, Liz's parents for driving all the way down from Pensacola, and to Liz and Paul for the opportunity to photograph their engagement. We can't wait for the wedding!

























Here are a few more images from a previous post.
