Chelsea, we are so awkward!! This was the first thing these two cutie patooties said to me when we met about their wedding and engagement. This is something I hear pretty much from every couple and it is NEVER true. Let’s be real, all of us feel awkward especially in front of a camera. That is why you hire me, to help you take your awkwardness and turn it into amazing pictures. One thing you should never do is change yourself or your significant other into something you guys are not just get to get certain photos during your session.
I met with Traci and Kaleb at the brewery that Kaleb and his brother own and run, Civil Society in Jupiter. We had lots of laughs…and well beers too and talked about how they met and the things they like to do together. Amazingly enough they met right there at Civil Society! Traci and I had a lot in common, beach girls who both grew up in fishing families. Kaleb is this tall, handsome soft spoken guy who honeslty you just want to give him a big hug when you first meet him. Being around them for just a few minutes you can see how much they love each other. Also, can we talk about how cute their furr child is!!!
They wanted to do their engagement photos at places that had meaning to them. Traci’s parents house is in an awesome equestrain community and her dad has a literal shark museum in his garage. So, we ended up starting at Civil Society and then headed to Traci’s childhood home. We spent the afternoon hanging in the shark museum, taking photos with a vintage bronco and ended with an insane sunset. This session reminded me of why I do what I do. Getting to hang with awesome people and document their love. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing then just that.
February 2020 can’t come soon enough so I can document more of these guys love story.
