Justin & Kayla : A Love Story

You can almost feel her heart skip a beat when she looks at him. And if you look closely at her beautiful greenish blue eyes, you can see the contentment in her spirit. There’s joy and  peace and happiness. Happiness for another chance at being able to hold her man close. The man who stole her heart and made her complete. Genuine joy that he is now back here with her after being separated from him by distance while he was honorably serving our country in Iraq for the last year.

For Justin & Kayla, it didn’t take very long for both of them to know that they belonged together. When they first met each other, they knew. That was all it took, they then spent the next few weeks falling in love. It all felt right, up to that moment that Justin proposed to her, determined  that neither time nor distance would ever keep them apart.

From the moment we met this beautiful couple, we immediately fell in love with their charm and their genuine passion for life and for each other. I just know that documenting their wedding next year will be ultra fabulous! They really are two of the most joyful people to be around and I’m so sure that this will be an indication of how fun and how full of love and laughter their wedding day will be.

We shot their engagement session a few weeks ago in Bayview Beach one early morning right before a rainstorm. We had dramatic clouds, great light, the beautiful and surreal low tide, and a couple that was genuinely in love. What else could we ask for. Here are the first few shots of the day and they turned out to be one of my favorites.
