one hot engagement session…alisha and anthony

You may remember this bride to be from her brother’s wedding not too long ago, where she gave a sweet speech that brought the room to tears. What an honor to be able to capture both of these siblings on their special days!

I met up with Alisha and Anthony one extremely hot afternoon for this fun engagement session. We noticed right away that we had more than just 100 degree heat to deal with, but humid and muggy weather, an incredibly bright sun and then a rain storm that just about blew us away! Despite the challenges, these two were pros! Check out their awesome session below!

P.S. They liked to kiss!


Love this one!

Look at Alisha’s stunning eyes! WOW!

Sometimes I ask people to do random things and I always love when they oblige! This time, I spotted a little “treasure” in a store window and quickly asked these love birds if they’d sit down in front of it. Without giving myself away, I wanted to surprise them with a few images where these words were “sweetly singing” in the background
You are my sunshine, My only sunshine…

Caught this right before a rowdy passerby jumped into the frame!

After spending a little time downtown, we headed to the beach to finish up our session. When we arrived it was a typical Florida beach day… Florida being the key word, because it didn’t take long for the sky to darken, the wind to start whipping, the lightening to start popping and us to start running to the car in the rain!

I love the way the wind caught Alisha’s skirt in so many of these images. 

So romantic.

These two are some more of my favorites!

There’s that awesome wind!

This one is so serene and peaceful!

Hands down my favorite of the day!

This was taken literally 10 seconds after the lightening struck and the thunder rumbled so loudly that I let out a true “girly scream” and about 10 seconds before the rain started to pour. The clouds are amazing!

Alisha and Anthony- thanks for hanging with me on this adventurous day! I can’t wait until your wedding!

Got to love Florida in the summer time. 🙂 You guys obviously stuck in there and captured some amazing shots in spite of the obstacles. I can’t wait to see more of the beach pictures. Alisha said you took lots. Great job!!!
