Just six weeks prior, I had been a complete ball of nerves shooting photos of these two, knowing that Michele was about to pop the question. But this time didn't involve any surprises... there was no diamond ring hidden in my camera bag... and we weren't in a race with Mother Nature. Whew. We met at Tree Tops this time, on a beautiful & surprisingly cool Sunday (okay, okay, "cool" meaning low 80s - this is South Florida, after all). Everyone must have been taking advantage of the great weather because the park was very crowded... The good thing is that when you're with a couple who is so enthralled in each other & constantly making each other laugh, it seems like we were the only ones for miles. Congrats again, Michele & Greter![tg_grid_gallery gallery_id="9158" layout="wide" columns="4"]
Jackie & Jonathan had never been to Tree Tops Park and I loved seeing it through their eyes. Its become one of my favorite places to shoot photo sessions... (and judging by the recent crowds, its become a favorite for a lot of other local photographers, as well). However, since I grew up near it and shoot at it so often, I sometimes forget to appreciate its beauty. It really is a very unique spot in South Florida, with a lot of interesting landscapes that you don't see much of in this area. I love the variety... as Jackie pointed out near the end of the session, everywhere we stopped was very different. Since I've mostly been doing mini-sessions there lately, this session was a great change to really take advantage of some of the great spots in the park without worrying about time. And I owe a big thank you to these two for letting me drag them all over this huge park! It was a great day!
