I utterly adore destination engagement sessions. While I do love shooting in Brooklyn, Manhattan, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, there is something inspiring and wonderful about hopping a plane and shooting in a brand new location. I shoot several destination weddings per year, and it’s always a treat when I can see those couples before their wedding date to photograph their engagement session. Sometimes this means the couple visits the New York or Philadelphia area before their wedding, and we get to shoot here. Sometimes it means that I fly to them, and shoot their engagement session either in their town, or in the location that their wedding will take place. I have been traveling for weddings and portraits since 2001, so I’m very comfortable bringing my gear on a plane and wrangling the logistics of travel shoots. This destination engagement session was shot in Florida, somewhere very near and dear to my heart. I photographed this couple’s wedding later that year at Disney World, and the sunset on their wedding night was just as spectacular as this one!
