We met Michelle and Charlie as the sun was going down on an ever-so-hot summer evening in July. This couple is very special to us, as they are officially the first couple that neither Jacqueline nor myself knew either the bride or the groom before this session. Before this historic landmark in our company’s brief history we have had at least a friend-of-a-friend introduction. As we love getting to know our sweet couples, we asked how these two met. Michelle replied, “We walked down the aisle together at a mutual friends’ wedding.” Jacqueline and I stole a look at one another, relaying with our eyes the mutual agreement of this romantic and truly charming introduction.

The idea for the session was to walk around downtown Tallahassee and stop here and there as we went, to capture a unique and contemporary feel for this lovely engagement session. The result is full of color and textures and such unique locations. Of course, this pales in comparison to love and endearment we see between Michelle and Charlie. I love how Charlie makes Michelle smile. In almost every image you can see this sweet smile—not only on her lips, but in her eyes as well.

As we are walking along, Michelle casually states that she may have an idea for a location, one that she had not previously relayed to us. As we waited with anxious ears, she continues, “I work at the capitol and we could use the 22nd floor if you would like.” We tried to contain our excitement, but I still think a squeal might have escaped my lips. We couldn’t believe the amazing views the tippy top of the capitol building held.

Both Michelle and Charlie graduated from FAMU–Florida A&M University. We had talked about including the campus somehow in their images but the locations didn’t fit with the style they had wanted. BUT we love how this turned out. These two high above and their alma mater far below. It could not have been more perfect.

The day was soon approaching it’s spectacular finale as we completed our circle of downtown. We absolutely adore the sweet and lovely Michelle and Charlie. We will be bringing you more amazing pictures soon…as we will be capturing their wedding day as well! Eeepp!
Thank you both so much for allowing us to photograph these amazing moments. We are truly blessed and honored.

Morning Playdate.

The morning was chilly when we met up with Yeni and Catherine. It had been a little more than a year since the last time we had met. It is amazing how much a child can change in just one year! She has grown taller and is getting really good grades in school. She likes […]

 

The morning was chilly when we met up with Yeni and Catherine. It had been a little more than a year since the last time we had met. It is amazing how much a child can change in just one year! She has grown taller and is getting really good grades in school. She likes her teacher but was looking forward to the weekend to be with her mom.

I love this image. It represents all that we look for in our mothers: strength, beauty, wisdom, and some one to always lean on.

The girls played along the sidewalk of downtown, walking along as we followed en suite. The relationship these two have is so incredible. Catherine is lucky to have such a nurturing fun loving mom! :)

Towards the end of the morning they both began to tire. As they sat on a bench resting their feet we took the opportunity to grab a few more pictures. How could we not, they are both so gorgeous! We would like to thank Yeni and Catherine for meeting up with us and letting us capture this unique time in their relationship. We wish you both good fortune and can’t wait to see you again!
