Nikki contacted me a few months ago to schedule an engagement session while she and her fiancé David were in Florida for a week, visiting from Birmingham, AL. She asked if I could find a beach that had driftwood on it, and immediately I thought of the rather un-romantically named beach, “Beer Can Island” at the very end of Longboat Key. I had a feeling these two would be up for a little adventure, and wouldn’t mind the not-so-easy access to this incredible beach that feels like an abandoned movie set from “Blue Lagoon”. What I didn’t know until we started walking along the beach is that they were in town for bridal showers & their wedding was only weeks away (in Ohio)! Well, TODAY IS THE DAY of their wedding so I thought it would be a perfect day to post this gorgeous session. I was lucky enough to score my busy hubby as my assistant that evening, and somehow the 4 of us felt like old friends almost instantly. As we were leaving, Nikki and I wished we could be at their wedding! (I was actually jealous of whoever gets to shoot it). Something magical on that island I guess.
CONGRATULATIONS DAVID + NIKKI!
