OKAY let’s talk sunrise sessions for a minute. They seem like a pain in the ass, right? Ya gotta get up hella early to do your makeup and hair, drive out to the beach before dawn, and probably miss your morning coffee. But sunrise engagement sessions are so right for so many reasons! The temps are low, the beach is deserted- maybe a fisherman here or there, and you get to witness the most incredible sunrise views with your boo along the Emerald Coast!
Mariana + Greyson were scheduled to photograph their engagement session in Georgia, but the rain forecast was making their one day for engagement photos look like a bust. So we shot them here! Locally. Along Pensacola Beach’s Gulf Islands National Seashore.
Greyson, man, let me tell you. This session is now the session I send to all my couple’s to motivate guys to GET CUDDLY! All of these sweet moments were unprompted. He is infatuated with his bride and it shows <3 After getting to know each other during our session, I learned that Greyson and my fiancé work together! Small world! I’m seriously considering sending this gallery to all the spouses in the squadron so they can share with their guys- haha! But seriously, I can’t deal with the nose kisses and belly laughs Greyson gave Mariana throughout their sesh. SO cute.
We got to explore a ton of cool spots along Gulf Islands National Seashore. If you and your boo are up for it, consider making your engagement session an adventure! Explore somewhere you haven’t been before! Bring a few outfit changes- something to walk around in and something to twirl around in, and soak up some salty air! And you guys know me, I’m always down for getting in the water with ya!
