The Day Before

Some of my out of state weddings choose to do an engagement-type session the day before their wedding so they can get some cute pictures together without being dressed up and I always love it! Angelin and Ryan got married in Florida (well, in a boat off the coast of Florida) and the evening before we went out to the pier in Cocoa Beach and did some shooting!

Angelin and Ryan have been together since high school! They were obviously so comfortable and in-love and fun around each other. It’s always so fun to see how two people in-love interact and be able to capture that :).

This first shot is one of my favs!

Another favorite!

I often have people tell me they love how a lot of my portraits seem more candid and photo-journalistic. I think this is a good post to point out that, while most of these pictures seem pretty non-invasive, I actually posed them (told them where to put their hands, to look at each other, to look at me, how to sit/stand, nuzzle each other, etc) in most of the shots and then let them do their thing so it looks natural and unforced. I think they did a pretty good job with all my orders :).

upI’ll probably be blogging less in the next month or so I can get all my client’s proofing galleries, but I’ll try to sneak in a picture or two every few days!

    I really like the Day Before shoot. We had a destination wedding and couldn't meet up with the photographer for an engagement shoot, so we had a shoot the day before the wedding. It was wonderful to meet him and "practice" and get out the paparazzi nerves before the actual wedding day.
    I came here from ThatWife – love your beautiful pictures!

    Found you from That Wife! I love this idea. I wish my husband and I had thought to do it because we changed so much between our engagement pictures and our wedding weekend thanks to the wedding diet. Beautiful photos 🙂
