Nestled in Estero, Florida, Koreshan State Park is a serene and picturesque location for engagement photos with lush greenery, tall palm trees, Spanish moss, and a peaceful river. I recently had the pleasure of photographing Gracie and Justin, a lovely couple who met in high school seven years ago. Gracie’s bubbly personality immediately caught Justin’s attention, and the two have been inseparable ever since.
A WALK IN KORESHAN STATE PARK
We began our session by strolling through the park, enjoying the stunning natural views. Gracie and Justin shared stories of their adventures and how they first met, brimming with excitement and anticipation for their upcoming wedding. While initially nervous in front of the camera, they grew more comfortable as we approached a beautiful white Victorian-style bridge. The soft light filtering through the trees added a magical touch to the photos.
CASUAL & FUN ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS
As the sun began to set, we found a clear space away from the historic buildings for a champagne pop. Gracie and Justin were excited to celebrate their engagement, and I was ready to capture the moment. Against the backdrop of the sunset, we opened the bottle, and the bubbly poured out as they laughed and toasted to their future. It was a joyful and unforgettable moment that added excitement to the session.
As their session came to an end, Gracie and Justin expressed how much fun they had and how grateful they were that I was able to make them feel comfortable and relaxed. The engagement session was a real celebration of their love, and Koreshan State Park provided the ideal setting. I’m excited to see what the future holds for this lovely couple and wish them a world of happiness.
