Sam and Amanda’s bridal session was not originally in the big plan.
You see, their perfectly planned beach wedding day was almost entirely rained out. And I don’t mean a few showers. I mean a Florida thunderstorm that sometimes feels like an unpredictable hurricane. While it stopped raining just long enough for the ceremony, it left us with no opportunity to get their portraits.
Luckily these fun-loving, energetic, up for almost anything sweethearts got all dolled up after their honeymoon, for a Bridal Session.
And we couldn’t be any happier with the results.
As you’ll see, Amanda is a lover of life, and she is making a career out of helping others get healthier and happier. She gives a thousand percent to everything she does, and that includes helping her community and people in any way possible.
And then there’s Sam! Ya’ll. I really hope you can see in these images the way he looks at her. Pure unadulterated love. #relationship goals right there!
We started the session on the same beach where they got married, and we were blessed with clear blue skies and really beautiful water. After that, we moved to the other side of the island where we would catch the sun setting. It’s another gorgeous spot. You’ll see in the images below that it was a little precarious getting out to the beach! We needed to get across a little stream, and it took some fancy footwork for Amanda to cross a wooden plank in that dress and those heels.
It was perfect when we got there.
Although we may have trashed the dress a little bit, we had a great session. And I loved watching Sam and Amanda love on each other without the stress of guests, rain, wind, and time.
Sam & Amanda, ya’ll know you hold a special place in my heart, and you deserve all the blessings to be rained down on you (is it too soon for rain jokes?).
