Jana is a corporate event planner and traveled all the way from Ohio to Ponte Vedra, FL on a business trip. She contacted me a just few weeks prior to see if there was any possible way to schedule an engagement session on the beach at sunrise. Of course I wanted to make this happen for her and was super excited I had the day available to make it happen.
Little did we know the weather was not going to be on our side. After waking up extremely early to get her make-up done by Sotheavy from MissMum Make-up Artistry, we ended up with absolutely no sunrise. I knew I would have to get creative to do whatever I could to make her beach photos special. So with a little bit of PhotoShop we made it possible.
Magnolia Avenue is right down the street from J&S Carousel and had to make sure we made made a stop to take photos on the carousel.
We were having so much fun but our day was far from over. We headed over to the incredibly beautiful Lightner Museum.
The rest of the day we walked the streets of St Augustine finding any photo opportunities we may find along the way.
As we walked the streets of St Augustine, I was able to get to know the couple a little more. The two of them meet on Bumble in the spring of 2016 and has been "buzzing" with their love ever since.
On Christmas of 2016, Jana's family thought John was going to propose but Jana walked into her family's house with no ring on her finger. Of course everyone was a little sad but then they all figured that it may just happen on New Years instead. Little did Jana or her family know that John had it all planned out and proposed with his mother's ring on his birthday December 29, 2016.
After he proposed with his mother's ring they had a custom ring made with the center diamond from his mom's ring.
You can not only see the love between the two of them but their love also will light up any room they walk into!
A huge thank you to not only the amazing couple, Jana and John, but also to Kendra from Kendra Bryson Photography for assisting me and holding my lighting when I needed it.
Another huge thanks to Sotheavy from MissMum Make-up Artistry for doing an amazing job on her make-up.
We also had John from John-William Media shooting video and will soon have that available for viewing!
