One, Panther Beach is an amazing location and definitely a local gem. Two, Christian and Louise was totally dressed for the beach. They looked great in their beach ready clothes! Three, shooting them reminded me of why I love my job so much.
We met in the parking lot and took a little hike down to the beach. The first thing we saw was how blue the water was. It was the perfect day to take photos - no wind and clear skies!! The first thing that caught my eyes was the cove, it reminded me a bit of Cabo and Hawaii. The cove framed the ocean and beach just right, enough for a photo op with the couple. We then shot for the beach photos, added our own flavor and used confetti poppers, and ended the shoot with an amazing view of the sky as a backdrop.
In my short time of interacting with Christian and Louise as a couple, I would have to say that these two work really well together as a team, they respect each other, and never left the other one behind. You can see that they make each other whole and that is something everyone should hold dear to their heart. Louise looked amazing for the camera, in one of the photos that we took, I had to scream out loud, "Dang girl!" LOL. Christian was the biggest goofball, he worked really well the bouquet and gave us the best candid shots!
If you stroll down to the photos of the couple against the beautiful sky backdrop, that was the moment I realized, "Wow, these two trust me to capture them in their natural state and on their special day. To be vulnerable and have fun in front of the camera is a very ballsy move. Man, I can't believe they trust me".
Thank you Christian and Louise, we can't wait to shoot you guys next Spring.
