Engagement Shoot: Leslie and Joe

All Photos: Franks Photography
One of the best parts of being in the wedding industry is you are really given an opportunity to get to know your clients over the course of planning their wedding. Such is the case with my couple that are getting married in Central Florida next weekend! I met this beautiful pair in January. I left our initial consult excited to work with them. Like many couples, I could see the genuine love they have for each other. They are sincere, loving, caring and so giving to each other. They wanted to work with a coordinator to ensure no detail would be forgotten; more importantly, they wanted to work with a Professional Consultant because the felt it would give them an opportunity to enjoy the remaining months of their engagement. They used that time to focus on the spiritual aspects of their lives without stressing themselves to plan their wedding. Surely enough, we were working together within the week. Well months of planning have come down to the next few days.

Their engagement session was done in two sessions (late spring and this past weekend) with photographer Frank Figueroa of Franks Photography. Anyone who knows Frank, knows he goes above and beyond for his clients. The photos truly speak for themselves. They are a sweet, fun-loving and adventurous couple and you can see how free-spirited they are in their photos. Below are a few of my favorite shots:

Leslie and Joe's wedding weekend is going to be phenomenal. I am looking forward to giving you all a sneak peak of their wedding weekend. We will feature a few details from their wedding in our upcoming posts. Until next time,
