Shara & Vinnie are engaged! // Miami Engagement Photographer

It all started with a flirt at a sorority party that Vinnie blew off when Shara tried to catch his attention. But as fate would have it, they continued to bump into each other around campus and then decided to plan their first date. Fast forward to Vinnie’s recent birthday, he had planned a huge party that people thought they were coming to celebrate his birthday. Behind the scenes though at the party, he took Shara aside to a room with candles and champagne and asked her to marry him.

With the passion that Shara & Vinnie share, you would think they had just starting dating a week ago. However, these two New Yorkers have been together for 10 years, and will celebrate their wedding in Miami’s South Beach next year at The Villa by Barton G., which is famously known as the old Versace Mansion. There in the midst of crowded South Beach, usually, no one is allowed beyond the guarded front gate where tourists take their photos in front of the historic venue, but we were excited to be able to be escorted in for a few shots during their engagement session which you can see in the last killer rockstar shot below!

Here’s some of Stephen and I’s favorites from the shoot!

Jobria & Josh are engaged! // Atlanta Engagement Photographer

When Jobria first emailed me, she shared from her heart a long novel of an email that reminded me so much of my favorite movie, The Notebook. Her and Josh’s story is so similar. As teens, they were so in love. Then circumstances took them apart. They tried to date other people in between, but when life brought them back to Atlanta together, the sparks flew again and they couldn’t stay away from each other.

In February, Josh told Jobria he wanted to take her four wheeling around his family’s farm property. A little confused, Jobria jumped on board, and after running around the farm, they finally stopped at a picnic table lit up with tiki torches and waiting was her favorite food, Mexican! Next thing she knew, Josh was on his knee with a ring. Josh chose the farm to propose because that’s where they first met when they were teenagers.

For their engagement session, they flew Stephen and I up to the farm to shoot their photos in the spot they became engaged. We had a fun time getting the true “Southern hospitality” treatment from them and their awesome family. They even let us borrow their four wheelers to try out for the first time, and we had to get it on video. You can view that video here!

Here’s our favorite shots from their engagement session! We’re super excited to be shooting their upcoming gorgeous wedding at The Breakers in Palm Beach!
