When people ask me about specific locations that I love photographing at I typically don’t know what to say. To be honest I don’t really have a preferred location because well, all outdoor locations in Florida kind of look the same. When Brittany and John reached out to me and mentioned they wanted to do their session at Matheson Hammock Park in Coral Gables I knew what type of environment I was going to be shooting in but what I didn’t know was that when it rains in this area of town … holy wow, the light that peeks through the beautiful trees after a storm is completely different from a perfect sunny day and this changed everything about the way I viewed this specific location and to be completely honest with you guys my view on it wasn’t anything pretty.
I can’t really give all the credit to the light and environment though, I truly believe that it was John’s love and Brittany’s vulnerability that allow for the perfect elements to come together and create such a dreamy session. These images have become some of my favorite of all time because of the amazing time we shared, the beautiful light, the laughs, and secrets I learned from about these two and just the trust they had in me. I am amazed at what 30 minutes of down time before the session can do instead of jumping into pictures right away. I was able to learn more about who they are, their families, their personalities, their lives and above all their beautiful love story and I was able to share with them about my life too.
These two made real magic happen <3
