Christina and Thomas’ Blowing Rocks Preserve engagement session featured all things Florida: a warm golden hour, funky landscape of palm trees and sea-grapes, pristine beaches, and a cotton candy sunset. This gem of a location is one of Florida’s best kept secrets and our top requested engagement session location in the Central Florida area.
Christina and Thomas met in college the summer before their freshman year – they both played fall sports at Duke University (Thomas played football and Christina played volleyball) and had to go early for summer classes. During their sophomore year, fate brought them back together when they moved into the same dorm – one lunch date on campus and it’s been happily ever after for the duo, ever since!
They reached out to me a few months into their engagement when they were in search for the perfect photographer to capture their upcoming wedding in Durham, North Carolina. Christina told me that she was looking for a “happier” feel over dark and dramatic photos along with authentic and candid moments like deep laughs and anything that wasn’t quite so posed, which could possibly be the best description of my photography style that has ever existed! The lovebirds happened to be in South Florida for Thomas’ training session for the New York Jets (where Thomas went on to play professional football after graduating from Duke), and we met them up for a Blowing Rocks Preserve engagement session that was straight summer-lovin’!
