Remember that Florida Wedding Expo Amanda and I attended back in January? Well, if you don’t go back to this blog post to catch up or refresh your memory. Well we had a blast and met a lot of great couples at that show, including Samantha & Dave!
When we reached out to schedule their engagement session, Samantha immediately knew where she wanted to go for their photos. Samantha and Dave chose one of our favorite venues to shoot at, Cypress Grove Estate House.
The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect for an engagement session too! It was supposed to rain on Saturday, and we were so nervous for the wedding we were photographing on Saturday. Thankfully, the Saturday rain never came. Then, when it didn’t rain on Saturday, we were terrified it would rain on Sunday and we wouldn’t have the chance to photograph Samantha and Dave’s engagement session. It turned out that both days were nice and dry, and we were able to take beautiful pictures outdoors for both!
While getting to know Samantha and Dave a little better during our session, we found out how they chose Cypress Grove so quickly. They had actually toured the venue, and it was on their top 3 venue choices for their wedding day! They ultimately decided on a different venue, but could not get the idea of the beautiful oak lined street out of their heads. We love helping to make our couples photo dreams come true, so we made sure to snap some photos with them under that incredible oak canopy.
We are so excited for Samantha and Dave! They were a great couple and so much fun to work with. Everyone is nervous around a camera the first time, but Samantha and Dave quickly warmed up to the lens and had fun while doing it. We can’t wait for their wedding come November!
