Yet another outrageously photogenic couple whose session I photographed in Downtown Orlando and the Thornton Park area is featured here today. Jami & Chad will be wed later this Summer at one of my all time favorite Wedding venues; Paradise Cove! This gorgeous couple are planning their Florida Wedding from from Virginia so it was important to incorporate the “Florida Feel” into their engagement session. We had originally thrown around the idea of photographing the session in Cocoa beach but what with the weather being SO unpredictable that time of year, Jami communicated that they had fallen in love with the look of the Downtown Orlando area instead. I definitely feel Downtown Orlando is one of the more underrated cities in the country. Even though it is relatively small, it is extremely diverse in the different backdrops and scenery it contains. Some parts are very lush and tropical, while in not too far of a distance it can appear much more urban and lively. I love capturing images in this city because it reminds why I love it so much and how beautifully it photographs. I love even more that Jami & Chad picked this location for their engagement photographs. We started the session circling Lake Eola, submerging the two of them in as many palm trees as we could see while also capturing them against the city skyline. I also must add for future engagement session couples how beneficial it is to photograph sessions on a weekday! The difference in the amount of passerby’s and distractions compared to the weekend days is huge. Downtown Orlando is becoming intensely popular on the weekend that it’s near impossible to have a session without at least a handful of photo-bombers. lol! After an outfit change, we shot the last few images in the gorgeous Thorton Park area and then revisited Lake Eola while Jami & Chad made some feathery friends. 😉 I absolutely cannot wait to photograph this gorgeous couples Wedding day. It’s going to be exceptionally lovely!
