These pond engagement pictures were special for many reasons. One being it took place exactly one year before their wedding day! Secondly and most importantly, Taylor has a special place in my heart! Our mamas went to school together, and Taylor was a Sparkle girl at my bestie’s clothing boutique. When she and Derick got engaged, I was so excited when she reached out asking me to be their wedding photographer!
The weather was questionable all day. Clouds, overcast, and threatening rain. Taylor decided she wanted to just go with it for her dream engagement pictures at Bradley’s Pond, and embrace the clear bubble umbrellas if it was raining. The crazy Florida weather was definitely on our side! By the time we got started, the humidity was low, the clouds parted, and we even had one of the most STUNNING sunsets I’ve seen in a long time!
These two were up for anything and just flowed naturally right into posing. Their fur baby, Ella, joined in for a few pictures too! I love the sign that Derick’s sister made her! There wasn’t a minute they didn’t have a smile on their faces and the love they share radiated in their pictures! (Oh and I can’t forget to mention their outfits… nailed it! check out some outfit inspiration here!)
Spending time with Taylor + Derick was just what my heart needed that evening. You can’t be anything other than happy being around them. They brought so much joy into MY day, and I’m so thankful for them! 😊 Clients like these remind me why I do what I do, and for that, I am so grateful.
Enjoy some favorites of these lovebirds!
