Next up is Erin & Mark’s July engagement session that was photographed around Lakeland’s downtown area. I’m not hugely familiar with Lakeland mostly because it’s about an hour away from where I am but it’s really quite lovely there whenever I have a chance to revisit. It’s hard to believe that at the moment I have sessions starting around 3:30pm-4pm and in July session normally need to start around 5:30pm. How wonderful the time changes and Summers are here in Florida! 😉 With that being said, sessions in the Summer months even when we start late are still quite hot and humid so hydration is always encouraged. 🙂 We started Erin & Mark’s session around Lake Mirror next to Hollis Gardens and this location is definitely one of my faves outside of Orlando. It doesn’t appear to be insanely busy like Lake Eola and so forth so it makes dodging pedestrians & photo-bombers a breeze over there. This sweet couple had also brought some homemade props to incorporate into their photos. They had hand-painted cardboard letters to form their initialed monogram and the numbers of their Wedding date that had been attached to string all of which turned out adorable. After we had captured a handful of fun images around the lake, Erin & Mark had an outfit change and we ventured into the Lakeland downtown area. What’s lovely about this area is the amount of different backdrops and scenery within small distances of each other. We weaved in and out of alleyways & streets to capture Erin & Mark having fun and being loving towards one another. They were such a joy to photograph on this beautiful afternoon and I just cannot wait to photograph their Mission Inn Wedding Day in May (another favorite venue of mine!). I can tell their day is going to be just stunning just like the two of them. 🙂
