Summer is hot this year and after Christina + Wesley's engagement session, the season just got a little hotter. These two native Floridians grew up in Lakeland and met while working at Publix (I love shopping there but who doesn't, right?). They quickly realized they had one super life-important thing in common...fishing. They LOVE fishing, with a passion. As we all know, good things come to those who bait (funny, not funny? Hey, I tried)...and after two years of friendship and flirting Christina decided to stop waiting and asked Wesley a question he could not refuse, will you take me fishing? She first set out to steal his fishing spots but he ended up stealing her heart. Hook line and sinker - the rest is history!
Earlier this year, they took a cruise to the Bahamas and sly, sly Wesley had it all set up. He was going to propose on this trip. He loves this woman and knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. After speaking with the ship photographers the plan was set. Christina was told to dress for a romantic dinner and as they came to the top of the main staircase for their "cruise ship photo" he got down on one knee, pulled out the Tiffany Blue Box and said the magic words. The best and worst part about the whole story is the fact that they had no phone service or any way to share the news with family and friends. The newly engaged couple got to spend the next two whole days reveling in the excitement and emotions of that moment, just the two of them. Not to mention, everyone on the ship knew who they were and congratulated them everywhere they went. How awesome is that?!
Planning their session was easy. They knew exactly what look they wanted and I knew the perfect place. Washington Oaks Garden in St. Augustine, FL. This place has it all. Giant oak trees, a rose garden, a lagoon, access to the Matanzas River and they have their own beach! Check out some of the fun we had and see how these two fish found each other in the giant sea of life.
