Meeting this beautiful couple in West Palm Beach to photograph their engagement photos was quite the event. We started the day off at the breathtaking Bethesda By The Sea church (oh, you know, the church where Michael Jordan got married this weekend… I mean, NBD) and finished off the shoot walking the streets, discovering the most perfectly lit spots. I particularly loved how willing these two were to do anything and loved the easy way they connected with my camera. As we walked the streets, we exchanged stories about home renovations, school woes, last minute wedding planning stresses, and our shared love for the Miami Heat. You know, all the important things in life.
In between these conversations, we’d stop to take a few photos of their love and I couldn’t help but notice that through all of life’s stressful circumstances, the one thing we can rely on is love. When we stop and touch our foreheads together, wrap our arms around each other, and softly kiss, all of the world’s problems are replaced with the freedom that comes with love. Suddenly, we are free to give, free to love, and free to forget all else. Alex and Alin, thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph your engagement. I had such a blast with you guys getting lost on the streets and getting to know your love. In your marriage and in your new life together, there will sometimes be stress, unfavorable events, and unforeseeable pain. My wish for you is that in those moments, you stop and give yourselves the freedom to forget everything except for the love you feel for each other.
Enjoy your photos and I can’t wait to share your beautiful wedding soon! PS. Thanks for saving my door, Alex. ;)
So incredibly beautiful, these two.
Bethesda by the Sea, you have my heart. oh, my light… how I love this.
