Nautical Engagement Photo Shoot

Nautical Engagement Photo Shoot

Okay, guys! I’m down to the wire. 18 days to go until my wedding, and still tons that I need to do. So if I happen to disappear a little in the next few weeks, I’m sorry, but I’ve got a wedding to attend, a honeymoon in St. Lucia to go to, we’re moving into our new house, and oh, I’m also finishing the draft for my book.

So I love you all, but I’m gunna be a little busy!

Since I’ve been super sentimental lately, I thought it’d be fun to post some of my favorite engagement pictures for you guys to see. I’ve got my amazing photographer, Lara Rios, to thank for these! She’s been amazing to work with, and I can’t wait to see the pictures she captures on the big day!

For those of you who don’t know, Joe and I live in Miami, and our very first date was at the Miami Boat Show, where we spent all day walking around a marina, the same marina these photos were taken at.

It’s an incredibly special spot for us, and that’s why our wedding ceremony and reception will be taking place at a hotel that overlooks this marina, because that day at the boat show was the very best first date I ever had, and as it turns out, it was my very last first date too.

Now here’s a look at our nautical engagement photo shoot!

Joe was such a trooper that day! He hates taking pictures, but he did a really great job pretending!

Anyway, I’m beyond excited that I kind of get to spend the rest of my life with this guy. Nothing could be better.

    These photos are so gorgeous! I wish my husband and I done engagement photos, but we got married too quickly! haha (two months into our relationship). I’m hoping to do some formal photos next summer when he returns home from deployment 🙂

    These pictures are gorgeous! I hope you don’t stress out too much in the few days you have left until your wedding. At the end of the day, you are marrying your perfect guy, so concentrate on that and not anything else! 🙂

    Wow, simply beautiful. The background location is awesome. Love the simplicity of the photographer use of the shoes. Nice touch.

    You’re radiating! Great pics; my fave I think is the last one of you two walking away.
    Enjoy, have fun and take in every single minute and savor it. Your day will fly by and before you’ll know, you’ll turn to Joe and ask him where the day went.

    Congratulations again Hun and all the best! Xo

    Oh, my goodness–these are such incredibly beautiful photographs! You’d never be able to guess that your fiance hates taking pictures–he certainly warmed up to the camera in these. Love the nautical theme AND that you had your first date there–how incredibly romantic!

    You both look lovely together, no doubt about it. I love the setting of the photoshoot, it’s so serene and beautiful.
