If someone woke me up at 4:30 on a Saturday morning, I wouldn’t be the happiest camper. The fact that the waker-upper was holding coffee would at least save them from having a pillow thrown at them, but a mischievous grin would catch even my early-morning-groggy attention. If I then found out that this person was taking me to Disney World on a whirlwind adventure, ending in a proposal in front of the Magic Kingdom…I guess I could forgive an early morning wake up call. This is the fairytale story of how Dalton proposed to Sadie, and how this Jacksonville wedding photographer landed one of the most beautiful, and fun-filled, engagement sessions in St. Augustine.
Dalton, a youth pastor at his church, and Sadie, who has been praying for her future husband since she was 15 years old, are truly a couple in love. Posing them was effortless and natural, and they had no difficulty showing their affection for each other in front of a camera lens.
It is also wonderful for me when a couple comes to me with ideas and props! I loved getting to highlight Sadie’s love for Disney and Dalton’s work as a youth pastor in their photos. It personalized them and made them unique.
Florida is such a tricky state to take pictures in during the summer. There are afternoon storms almost every day, and I had recently rescheduled two couples engagement session due to storms. But the day of Sadie and Dalton's engagement session was beautiful, and there was no worry that we would have to reschedule! And the lighting and weather were perfect.
