Celebration at The Fountain of Youth
This bride and groom were married at the Fountain of Youth in April of 2017. They did a first look before the ceremony so that we could do the formal portraits of the family and bridal party in the early afternoon. After the ceremony, we focused solely on the couple's portraits. We were able to use some of the most beautiful spaces in the venue with soft, beautiful lighting.
In this image, I love the symmetry of the double door with the metal gate and the couple being off-centered. This is truly one of my favorite pictures from their wedding day. To pose them in this image, I simply said snuggle in close and said they could talk, kiss, or whatever felt best. Every couple has a different level of comfort in pictures.
If you're not a naturally affectionate couple and the thought of being affectionate in pictures causes you stress, that is okay. Be honest and upfront with me about what is causing you stress. I want you to be comfortable and have a great time. I also completely understand. I'm a bit camera shy too. We'll work through it together.
This is another reason I encourage couple's to do an engagement session. The engagement session allows us to have a relaxed time together and for me to learn about you as a couple before the big day!
