Rikki Lee + Ross rounded out the end of the Brooke Price Photography 2013 session calendar with their sun filled engagement session in Naples Florida. Their engagement session began at the Naples City Dock where we were joined by their fur baby, Tober. I don't get to work with a lot of animals for sessions, but I have to say, Tober was exceptionally behaved!
The weather for the session was BEAUTIFUL! Perfectly clear with gorgeous light all around. By only giving some gentle direction during the session, I was able to capture moments unique to Rikki Lee + Ross. Their true emotions and love for one another. After spending some time at the docks with Tober, it was time for just the couple and I to continue to our next location.
We rejoined at the Naples Pier, however, in December especially around the holidays it becomes a very crowded location. We opted to drive to a near by public access that ended up being a diamond in the rough as we were able to take advantage of a local residences gorgeous curb appeal!!
Engagement sessions are so rewarding because they offer up a less stressful schedule than the wedding day. Also, they give me a chance to work with a couple and get to know them more before the big day. It makes getting those "cozy" shots on the wedding day even easier as we have already worked together once and are more comfortable with one another.
An added bonus to an engagement session is the images mark the start of YOU. They are perfect to adorn the walls of your new home together, as well, you can create great keepsakes for your wedding too like Thank You cards and Reception Albums! When looking to invite guests and announce your upcoming wedding, these sweet moments make gorgeous Save The Dates!
