Paige + Matt Rainy Bok Tower Engagement Session
When Paige contacted me about her upcoming wedding, we ended up chatting like we were old friends. I knew we were the perfect fit.
And talk about perfect? Paige and Matt are so darn cute together. They have that easy, relaxed way with one another. You can see it in their smiles, gestures and way they communicate without saying a word.
To say they were naturals in front of the camera is an understatement.
Paige and Matt met while still in high school. They attended Florida Atlantic University, and both went on to work for Disney after graduation. Paige is now employed in the Hospitality industry and working for the Rosen Center, and Matt works at Enterprise.
We planned to have their engagement session at Bok Tower in Lake Wales, Florida. A glorious Historic Landmark consisting of 750 acres of beautiful gardens and a 205 foot singing tower. The day of our session, rains blew in with severe storms. ( I almost considered rescheduling. ) I am so glad they were okay with getting wet, and decided to go ahead with the shoot.
A docent was kind enough to give us a ride on their golf cart out to the historic singing tower, so we stayed dry for a little while. For the next 90 minutes or so, we walked the grounds and just had a great time. There are so many gorgeous locations at Bok. There is a reflection pond, glorious gardens, trails, paths and of course the historic tower.
Matt is a natural at interaction and Paige is so stunning, posing them is a dream. By the end of our time together, no instruction was needed. Matt and Paige were flowing through pose after pose all on their own. (This makes me super stoked for their wedding and to see the images we will get then!) Despite the rains, they vacillated between a sprinkle and a steady down fall, I think their images turned out phenomenal.
I love the classic shots highlighting the location and scenery, but for me the best images are when these two love birds were thoroughly drenched and snuggling up with one another. Yep, I am a sucker for real, authentic emotion and connection.
After all, Love is the reason
