Joe + Kala | Engagement | St. Augustine, FL Wedding Photographer

I am back from another blog sabbatical! This time I’m armed with 5, yes…FIVE, blog posts in queue. So you’re not getting rid of me so easily this go-round. I’m skipping over my 2012 personal recap (I mean, you’ve waited over 3 months for it, what’s another day/week or two?), and I’m diving right into a bunch of engagement loveliness. ‘Tis the season for engagements!

Gosh, where do I even begin with this session? A gorgeous couple, so happily in love in a beautifully historic city which includes the BEACH. I mean, seriously?! What is not to love??? Toss in the fact Kala is a pal of mine and all my close girlfriends are her bridesmaids? SCORE. I mean, I know I’m not supposed to pick favorites…but Joe + Kala’s engagement session may be my all time favorite! Their wedding is in the Florida Keys for crying out loud! So…yeah…see what I mean for yourself:

Alright, I’m just gonna come out and say it. I’m glad Kala is off the market. One less stunning woman we mere mortals have to compete with! I mean, GAH.

While the next images are far from technically perfect, I adore them. They have that sort of ‘je ne sais quoi’ despite being a little “soft” in focus.engagement, georgia, florida, st. augustine, south, southern, beach, atlanta, wedding, wedding photography, wedding photography, photographer, flagler, university, nashville, valdosta, athens, thomasville, macon, love, couple, pastels, christmas, lights, dress, ring (23)engagement, georgia, florida, st. augustine, south, southern, beach, atlanta, wedding, wedding photography, wedding photography, photographer, flagler, university, nashville, valdosta, athens, thomasville, macon, love, couple, pastels, christmas, lights, dress, ring (24)

Dear Kala + Joe,

In a couple months I’ll be making the trek from Atlanta to the Florida Keys for the very first time. I’m still so over the moon that you chose me out of the many great, local Florida photographers you could have hired. Not only am I excited to photograph my first truly destination wedding, I’m ecstatic it’s the wedding of a beautiful couple, both inside and out, and with each other. Your love radiates from within, making it oh so easy to capture in photographs. I look forward to capturing even more of that love on your wedding day.

XOXO,

Lani
