Nicole & Alexio
Nicole & Alexio decided to do their engagement session at Lake Mirror in Lakeland, FL. These two live right in the Lakeland area! With the lake’s scenic views and cool history the choice of location was a no brainer. They also brought along their two furry pups Penny & Rosie who are seriously adorable.
(dogs at engagement sessions are always a great idea!)
Lake Mirror Lakeland
This was only my second time visiting Lake Mirror in Lakeland but I loved it. We had their engagement session in the early morning so there wasn’t too much foot traffic and we caught the perfect morning light. The ornamental lamp posts and columns made a great backdrop. Not to mention, the lake surrounds several historic buildings. We stumbled upon an old Coca-Cola factory on the outskirts of the lake and it just so happens that Nicole has a love for all old things Coca-Cola (How fun!)
Why Have An Engagement Session
All of my couple’s that book with me get a complimentary engagement session! This is because I think it is very necessary for both parties. It shows you a little bit into how I guide you into posing. Not only that, but it lets me get to know your personalities and which prompts work best for you two. This is also a great time to let your photographer know if you have a preferred good vs bad side. (think selfie). Engagement sessions are such a fun part of the wedding process. Why not document this part of your life? I am always available to help with outfit planning and location ideas. The goal of the session is for it to be something enjoyable. That is why I say there are really no rules when it comes to an engagement session. You want to do it your favorite bar, a plant shop, a park, the beach? We can make anything happen!
I can’t wait to photograph these two at their wedding next year in April!
I love when couples bring their fur babies to engagement sessions check out another session with dogs here!
