Tanya and Jeff met several years ago when they both boarded a bus going to a Detroit Tigers game. Three years later they are happily planning their spring wedding in the Dominican Republic. As the temperatures dropped in late October in Michigan, they decided it was time for a warm weather get a way to Ft Myers, Florida. Tanya's mom Sara found me and after several conversations, we decided that Ft. Myers Beach would be a great place to take engagement photos. Not every couple takes the time to have engagement photos taken but I believe it is an opportunity to capture this special time and start to get comfortable in front of the camera.
Tanya and Jeff had an eventful and stressful day leading up to our session time but once everyone arrived it was all laughter and smiles. Ft. Myers Beach has several great photo areas and we decided to take advantage of the pier and Bowditch Point Regional Park. While discussing what they wanted for their session it was decided that trees and the beach were the most important elements. Jeff's only request was that I capture an image that they could enlarge and hang on their wall. I did my best!
Once they started getting comfortable in front of the lens, we were able to capture real moments and smiles. I encouraged them to play and have fun with each other and their faces reflected the love they have for each other.
They are planning their spring wedding in the Dominican Republic and I know it will be beautiful. Congratulations to two wonderful people!
