Even though we didn’t meet in person until the day of their engagement session, I’ve been chatting with Leah + Ben about their wedding plans for months and it feels like we’ve have been friends for YEARS! I just knew that I would love these two when we finally met, and as you’ll see, not only are they gorgeous individuals, but they were a complete delight to photograph, and honestly, just fun to be around! For their engagement photos, we planned a special trip to Seaside, Florida, one of my absolute favorite spots on the Gulf Coast AND the place where Ben asked Leah to marry him! We started with some fun shots with their sweet pups before heading to downtown Seaside, where we explored Ruskin Place and the Odessa Pavilion, where Ben proposed to Leah last summer. There’s something so special about being at the location where the proposal ACTUALLY went down…. and we definitely took a few moments to let that sink in. Two people reflecting on how this place was the very spot they decided to spend the rest of their lives with one another. We finished our evening together with an incredible sunset on the beach and some crazy, gorgeous photos with two beautiful people. You can’t ask for more. Leah and Ben, it is an absolute joy working with you and I cannot WAIT until October!
These two were instant naturals in front of the camera!
Gah! I love downtown Seaside!
An outfit change and a scenery change later found us at Odessa Pavilion – the very place where Ben proposed! Gorgeous is an understatement…
One last outfit change and one stunning sunset…. I’m spoiled rotten with all this PRETTY!
