I’m so thrilled to finally share these images with you all! This couple is amazing! I could tell instantly that these two are our kind of people!
Michelle and Colton recently moved to Tampa from good old Nashville. They had been up there while Colton was in law school. These two originally met at UF (go gators!) and hit it off at a function one weekend.
When Colton was ready to pop the question, he knew he had to plan something good. They were planning on heading out to California for a road trip after he passed the bar exam, so he determined this would be a great opportunity to propose (I mean, does it get any better than California?). While planning the trip, they were both looking forward to the stay in Big Sur the most.
It just so happens, that the day that Big Sur was on their schedule, there were crazy wild fires. As they left Santa Barbara, the hotel called and canceled their hotel room, as the fire was within 100 miles. Shortly after, the restaurant where they had reservations called with the same news. Of course, this was pretty much crushing Colton’s plans. He had even hired a photographer to capture the proposal.
The photographer was super helpful throughout the rest of the process. She dropped a pin and Colton and Michelle headed that way to watch the sun set. Michelle went with the flow as they drove through a gated community (totally normal…) and Colton persuaded her to change. Needless to say, the proposal was a success and they have beautiful images to remember that moment!
For their engagement session, we met up at our favorite spot in Florida – Bok Tower Gardens. Michelle and Colton even brought us a bottle of wine because Thomas and I were going to be celebrating our first anniversary the next day – sweetest couple ever!
These two were champs and totally rocked their session, even with the warm weather and oodles of people. They made each other laugh throughout the session and Colton may have even enjoyed himself – despite the fact that he hates getting his photo taken. 😉 Also, can I brag on these two for their perfect outfits? I’m a big fan! Everyone else – take notes! 😀
Michelle and Colton, thank you so much for including us in your wedding! We have loved getting to know you and we can’t wait to capture your day this December! You two have such a fun-loving personality and we are so excited to celebrate with you! Hugs!
