Brandon and Leigh Ann / Florida

Destination Engagement Session in Jacksonville, Florida  – (Post by Chicago Wedding Photographer, David Bock) We met Brandon and Leigh Ann at Summer and Ryan’s wedding last year (more specifically, in the Photobooth :D). As soon as these two were engaged they gave us a call and we got to talking about what they wanted to do for their engagement sessions (we’ll be working with them again later this month at French Lick Resort!). We ended up working out an idea for doing a destination engagement session in Destin, Florida. When the oil spill hit we halted that idea and instead moved it to Jacksonville, Florida.

We had so much fun with these two taking pictures on the beach, half deep in the waves, where Cat got very excited and accidentally drowned one of our flashes which somehow came back to life!!! (FYI, Shootsac owners — while the Shootsac may be made out of wetsuit material it is not waterproof. LOL.). We also got to check out the amazing resort they were staying at and snap some photos inside. In the end it was a wonderful day for the four of us and we’ve been waiting and waiting to show these images and can’t wait to meet up with them again at French Lick! 😀

Jacksonville, Florida Engagement Session Details

  • Hotel – One Ocean Resort (What a wonderful place, btw! The staff treated us wonderfully and were incredibly nice. Hope to see it again sometime! :D).
  • Beach Location – Atlantic Beach, outside Jacksonville, Florida.

To say that it was an absolutely gorgeous day would be one heck of an understatement. 🙂

From the beach we headed into town. 😀

In the end it was totally worth the climb up a palm tree! 🙂

Then we headed back to the beach again because the sun was going down. 🙂

The water on the beach was like glass. It was hard to just pick one of these for the blog. 🙂

And that was when the sun came out for like five seconds while I was scoping another location for photos. Thankfully Cat had stayed behind and snagged this one. One of our absolute faves. 😀

(BTW. I found a starfish!)

Somehow… I have no idea how… we convinced them to run out fully clothed into the water. 😀

This might be the wave that killed Cat’s flash… >.< Oh well! It was worth it. 🙂

I could take photos in Florida every single day for the rest of my life. Honest. 🙂

At the end of the night we got one of my all time favorite session photos at the bar of the hotel. Love this. 🙂
