Brace yourself for the longest engagement session blog post we’ve ever published! Because when you have a couple like these two, the hardest part of your job is narrowing it down to just a few favorites. (You’ll see what we mean when you scroll through this post!) And when your couple comes down from South Carolina for their engagement session, you’ve got to make sure they get the full “Florida experience”, complete with crashing waves on the beach and the most beautiful glowy light we’ve seen on the east coast! One thing you must know about Christa is that she’s an amazing photographer and the fact that she chose us to capture this special season in her and Edward’s life is so amazing to us!
Christa and Edward have the sweetest love story! They have known each other and been in school together since Pre-K. Yes, you read that right… Pre-K! Their sisters are best friends and once Christa and Edward got to high-school they became friends too. But it wasn’t until their senior year of college that their sisters told them they had to date (Although it was probably for selfish reasons because they wanted to be related!) At first, Christa and Edward just became really close friends and started hanging out with the same people. A little less than 2 years ago, they started developing feelings for each other and began dating. Their love grew with each passing day and in December of this past year, Edward popped the question in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. They’ve been dating for less than 2 years, but they’ve known each other their entire lives, and in a few short months they will be husband and wife!
We have been following Christa on Instagram since before she started dating Edward and we’ve loved keeping up with their sweet love story through social media! We’re SO excited to get the chance to shoot their wedding later this year in Greenville, South Carolina! We’re seriously so honored that Christa chose us to capture this amazing season in their lives and we were so happy they came down to Florida for their engagement session! Without further ado, here are some of our favorites from Christa and Edward’s West Palm Beach engagement session :)
Y’all aren’t ready for all this cuteness! All the sweet snuggles! Love how all these spots don’t even feel like you’re in the United States! Worth Avenue and these two did not disappoint! Love this one so much!! A quick outfit change and some fun with her flowy dress! My symmetry-loving heart is happy! Aren’t they the cutest?! We then drove a little closer to home to our favorite beach spot, House of Refuge Beach! Gahhh! Can’t even deal! Let’s just say the water completely took us all by surprise! The waves were insane that day but it made for the most epic pictures! Oh Christa! You’re so stunning and we can’t wait to see you as a beautiful bride! So much fun with these two! And then we witnessed the most gorgeous sunset we’ve seen on the east coast of Florida!
Christa and Edward, we had the most amazing time with you both and love you guys so much! We are humbled and honored that you chose us to celebrate this beautiful season in your lives! We cannot wait for your wedding in South Carolina and we’re officially counting down the days until September! :)
