Being a portrait photographer truly brings me so much joy. From capturing weddings, engagements, family sessions, or any milestone in life is always an honor to be entrusted to capture the moments. There’s just somethings about being allowed to capture a love story and paint 1000 words through an image.
Abby and Jacob drove in from Gainesville for their St. Augustine engagement session. We had talked over facetime but hadn’t officially met. Within ten minutes I felt as though they were long lost friends. I found myself smiling behind my camera (as I so often do) as I captured them while they told me their love story. I always ask for every last detail of the story which always inspires the way I capture a couple. To watch them laugh and to hear both of their prospectives as to how the proposal happened just gave me another glimpse into their story. And once again, as I edited the photos I sat at my desk smiling, watching their love shine through in the photos.
It’s more than capturing photos, being a photographer and telling a story. It’s capturing a day, a season, and cherishing the moments. And if a picture paints 1000 words, then goodness, get ready to “read” because it was hard to narrow down my favorites from this engagement session.
