It was a freezing cold Sunday morning when we met up with Simina & Steve to shoot their engagement photos. We decided to shoot in downtown St. Augustine early in the morning before they had to fly out that afternoon. They were in town only a few days to finalize wedding plans and we were so excited to finally meet them face to face. So many of our couples book us without ever meeting in person so its always an exciting time when we actually get to meet face to face. Simina & Steve live in New York City and planned their February wedding to be in a location a bit warmer than the blistering cold of a NY winter. Unfortunately the day we shot their engagement session was one of those rare cold mornings here in Florida that made them feel a bit like they were back home in the city. In spite of the chill in the air we all had an awesome time traipsing around the quiet streets of St. Augustine shooting their session. The best part of shooting early in St. Augustine is the feeling of having the city all to ourselves. Normally we are dodging people and traffic while we shoot but at 8am, very few people are moving around so the streets were ours for the taking. I knew I liked Simina from the minute I talked to her on the phone. She has such a sweet and kind demeanor that it feels like I’ve known her for years. Steve is every bit as kind and fun as his beautiful fiance. Being with them is like being with old friends. It almost didn’t feel like we were working when we were shooting them… and that’s the way we like it! Here are a few of our favorites from their session.
Steve & Simina, we cannot wait for your Valentine’s Day wedding. We know it will be absolutely beautiful and we are so excited to see you both again soon!
see I told you it was quiet in the mornings… not a soul in sight
Love this shot!
I love this series… so simple and beautiful!
