If the first engagement session of the year has any indication of what the rest of year will be like, it's going to be an incredible year. These two lovebirds are great friends of another all-time fave SO couple, Molly and John, whom I've decided only befriend the best humans if the friends of theirs I've gotten to know are a representation of their squad. Shannon and Alex have been rocking the long distance courtship while she's been finishing Veterinary school in Tennessee, and they were so sweet to let me join in on one of the nights of her birthday trip home and capture their engagement in one of my favorite places of all time - Wekiwa Springs State Park. After their original session had to be rescheduled due to the impact from Hurricane Irma, I was determined to show them all the beauty the park had to offer and man, did the Universe deliver! The sun glowed with a fiery warmth and after overcast clouds took over, we were rewarded for waiting out the sunset with a Sailor's delight (and to ours as well!).
