We were so thrilled that Joel and Anelena wanted something unique and fun for their engagement session. We brainstormed for a while about what they loved and when we found out Anelena adores the color orange we knew we had to shoot their engagement session in a real Florida orange grove!! They were thrilled with the idea so we set the date for the next time they were in town. It just so turned out their next trip to Orlando was in the middle of an August heat wave. I cannot even express how intense the heat was this day. In the middle of Florida with no breeze at all, the heat index was well over the 100 degree mark. Thankfully for us, this south Florida couple was plenty accustomed to the heat and didn’t let it get to them one bit. They were playful, affectionate with one another, hilarious, and absolutely relaxed in front of our cameras. Every time we are with these guys we have a blast and end up talking for ages. If we had things our way, we would make sure they lived closer to us so we could have a healthy dose of awesome on a regular basis. We can’t wait to share their gorgeous citrus inspired wedding from this Fall. Joel is an incredibly talented graphic designer and designed their wedding stationary and details himself. He and Anelena hand made so many of their details and truly put a personal touch to their wedding day. I cannot express how happy it makes us when couples put so much thought and attention into their details and making their day truly unique. Its the little things that make a wedding feel so special and full of love.
We hope you enjoy this summer engagement set amongst the orange trees and check out Anelena’s beautiful orange nails. This girl wasn’t kidding when she said it was her favorite color. We can’t blame her… it makes us very happy too.
Stay tuned for their Cypress Grove Wedding coming up soon.
