Marissa & Eric have a love for the Key’s.
Those warm, salt kissed breezes. White, powdery sand beaches beckoning you to kick off your shoes, and stroll barefoot hand and hand under the moonlight. Or to watch the last sliver of sun dip below the horizon in a blazing sunset. That laid back atmosphere where you can draw in a deep breath, and feel the stress of the outside world fade away.
Where happiness and LOVE sizzle like electricity through the air.
Aaahhhh. The Key’s are pretty ah-mazing.
But, this couple here? Pure perfection!
Marissa and Eric will be exchanging their vows at sunset down in the Key’s this November (And I am lucky to be their photographer).
Let me tell you, the relaxed beach atmosphere fits them perfectly. They are so laid back, and just fun to be around.
When Marissa and Eric first contacted me and shared their love story, I knew their engagement session would be incredible. With this Key theme going, it seemed appropriate to have their pictures taken on Lover’s Key in Fort Myers.
Marissa and Eric met while studying at Florida Atlantic University, and enjoying the Greek Life. Since then, they have become inseparable.
They live on the Atlantic Coast with their two Mini Australian Shepherds. The story goes, they had one dog who attached itself to Marissa, so Eric had to go and get another dog for himself! Their love for their fur babies is apparent, and they even came to the engagement session with them!
We started out our time together at Truly Scrumptious, a quaint little Ice Cream shop on Fort Myers beach, to talk and grab some lifestyle images. Their sweet treat looked oh, so heavenly, and I heard tasted just as good.
From there we moved down to a little dog beach we passed on the way in, to grab some photos with the pups and let them burn off some energy.
The sky was overcast and cloudy when we arrived at Lover’s Key. After a quick change, (Marissa’s long red gown is gorgeous!!) we headed down to the beach. We must have had some intervention, because the clouds parted and the sun appeared. Talk about thing’s heating up quickly? These two were smokin!
Marissa and Eric were so much fun to work with, and made their photo session a dream! They are posing PROS!
I am looking forward to their wedding this November. Until then, please enjoy some images from Marissa & Eric’s Engagement Session in Fort Myers.
