The first time I met Renee and Joseph face to face was about five minutes before we started shooting. We met at the pier parking lot in Deerfield Beach, Florida. I recognized them right away from the way they held themselves together as two people in love. Renee has a beautiful son that I just fell in love with too. They recently moved from Alaska. Yes, ALASKA. That day at the beach was un commonly cold for me of course, but not for them! Lol. We had been in touch via email prior to meeting and I was looking forward to spending time with them and getting to know their love story while I was photographing them.
6:30 in the morning is not ideal for me since I am a night owl. But if anyone knows me, knows how much I LOVE photographing sunrises. What is really cool is you never know what colors God may bring that morning. Sometimes they are purples and pinks and other times they are blues and yellows. That day it was a gorgeous fire red, yellows and oranges. It looked spectacular and of course I was in awe. Congratulations Renee and Joseph! Can’t wait to see what the future will hold for you both as well as your son!
