Neisha + Byron | University of Florida ~ Gainesville, Florida
When the phone rang and it was Neisha and Byron, inquiring about taking their engagement photos, we hit it off straight away. Neisha was full of happiness and was so energetic, lively and sweet. I was intrigued to know more about them, and I wasn’t disappointed!
Byron proposed to Neisha in a swoon-worthy epic proposal that most girls only dream about having, and here it is. A sunrise hike up a beautiful mountain in Bali set the scene for Byron to get on one knee and ask Neisha to spend the rest of her life with him by her side. I have tears as I type this. It’s just so romantic, and of course they wanted some amazing engagement images to capture this special moment. They traveled from Texas for the holidays to be with their family in Florida, and decided that they would do their engagement images at the University of Florida, where they met in college. In a turn of events, they briefly separated and ended up working for the same company! The stars truly aligned with these two! It was meant to be!!!
I shoot a lot of weddings, and I just adored the way Byron looks at Neisha. It’s just what every girls wishes for in a partner. They are both relaxed, easy going and happy. That really shines through in the images. I am very blessed to get to know this amazing couple because they truly are just adorable inside and out.
The morning of the engagement was a rare freezing Florida one. Neisha and Byron had just returned from a vacation in Europe, and were ready to get some images to announce their special day!
If you’re a Floridian, you’ll know those days are very rare, indeed. Even dressed in a gorgeous sweater, Neisha was freezing! Luckily she had the equally gorgeously-dressed Bryon to keep her warm!
In true Florida style, the sun came out in time for a fabulous outfit change into something a little more dressy, and the couple looked magazine worthy throughout the whole session. I was in photographer heaven.
Byron and Neisha just eased into posing like they were professionals, and the smiles were rich and natural. I just loved everything about these two, from their ease with each other, to Neisha’s beautiful accessories that really gave that big ring a pop!
I am happy to include them on my list of amazing couples I photographed in 2018.
Many happy returns for this happy duo. I look forward to hearing more about your epic vacations and plans for your beautiful wedding!
