When I decided to host the engagement shoot giveaway, I wanted to gift it to a couple that would otherwise not have photos of that special time in their relationship. I believe in the power of photography and I wanted to share it with a somebody who wouldn’t have been able to experience it otherwise. One day I received an email from Desi:
“Hello there, I came across this giveaway through the floridian weddings blog and couldn’t wait to enter. I am not the actual couple entering the contest. I’m the younger sister of the groom. I am entering this giveaway for them to see if I can surprise them if chosen.
My brother and future sister in law are amazing together. My brother, as I love him dearly, is of great personality. He is funny, loving, big hearted, a patriot of this country (military veteran with 1 tour in Afghanistan), adventurous, supportive, encouraging, as well as, hard headed, argumentative, and difficult at times, lol. Daisy his fiance seems to be the puzzle piece to him that just fits right in. She carries the same big heart as he but there is also something about her that is his calming presence. They share a love for all things nature related. My brother even proposed to her on a weekend trip to the Florida Keys!
I have entered this giveaway without telling them to surprise them with something I feel they deserve. I thought I would enter to give them the chance to have something beautiful ( your work is fantastic and captivating) and professional.It would be a great honor and privilege to be chosen and be able to surprise my brother and his bride with this blessing. Desi”
I sat back, and re-read the email a few times as tears formed in my eyes.
I had found them.
I met David, Daisy and their puppy TJ at Tree Tops Park for their engagement session. They wanted to do something to embrace their love for the outdoors and adventurous spirit as well as something sweet and romantic.
It was such an honor to have been able to capture this for them.
I have to give a huge Thank You to the lovely women of Floridian Weddings for their support and help in the giveaway. It wouldn’t have been able to happen without them. And also a big hug to Desi for being such an amazing sister.
