Engagement photographers in Jacksonville are very fortunate because there are SO many locations in this area for portraits! When many people think of a Florida session, the first thing the think of is the beach. And, of course, beach pictures are great!
However, there are so many fabulous options. We have urban areas in downtown, Riverside, and San Marco. In addition, we have grassy fields, marshes, parks, flower gardens, and [one of my personal favorites] FORESTS.
Carrie and Chris are getting married in September, and I am thrilled to be their wedding photographer. They knew from the beginning that they wanted their engagement pictures taken in the woods. That totally fits them! Chris is on the management staff at a local sporting goods store, so it makes sense that he feels at home in the forest.
In fact, it was through their jobs that Carrie and Chris met. While Chris worked at a sporting goods store, Carrie worked at a cosmetics store that was right NEXT to Chris’ place of employment. Somehow, Chris never managed to venture into Carrie’s shop. :) However, Carrie enjoyed browsing next door while on break. Once she discovered Chris, I’m pretty sure that Carrie found reasons to go there more often. I think that Chris is very glad that she did! The two soon started dating.
Chris proposed to Carrie during the Florida/Georgia game this past fall. He planned it all out. The best thing about that is that they were surrounded by family and friends. It’s a bit complicated because Chris is a fan of the Florida Gators, and Carrie pulls for the Georgia Bulldogs. But they are making their relationship work!
Both Carrie and Chris are very friendly, and I love how relaxed they are together. Their wedding is coming up in just a few months, but they are not the type to over-stress about it. They have chosen Bowing Oaks Plantation as their venue, and it totally fits their vibe. Bowing Oaks is known for being both rustic and elegant, which I absolutely love! I believe that a couple’s venue sets the tone for their whole wedding, and Carrie and Chris have made a wonderful choice!
