Port Orange, FL - Alex & Brittany's REAL LIFE Engagement

The threat of alligator attack, the suspense of staying hidden, and the excitement of such a big moment for two of my favorite people in the world! This proposal shoot had it all! I was so happy that Alex asked me to photograph him popping the question to Brittany. It was tricky staying hidden at Cracker Creek with boaters going past my hiding place (which I probably should have chosen away from the water's edge since there are plenty of local alligators.), and peacocks literally sitting on my feet and screaming/calling/whatever that crazy noise is.  I loved the fact that we shot their engagement photos at the exact time they got engaged.  It definitely made it easy for me to get lots of real emotion out of these two.  It was such a special moment and their Jacksonville wedding at the Ribault Club was just as amazing.  But that's a story for another day. ;)
