Why choose between shady trees and sandy beaches when you can have both?! Mike and Mandy had a great engagement session near Pass-A-Grille. They make such a beautiful couple, and they aren't even in their wedding duds yet! They were so easygoing and sweet, no matter where we strolled.
I love playing with the sun as a back-light for the close-up shots. It gives the couple the perfect glow to reflect how happy they are! The shot of the couple framed in the doorway of an abandoned building turned out to be very unique, and was a great style contrast to the other images. It is certainly hard for anything to beat the images that are created as the sun sinks below the horizon. I love the shot of the couple standing on the rock as the waves crash around them and the sky fills with color. It is just as epic as Mike and Mandy's once in a lifetime love!
