Trying to conduct an engagement session on the #1 rated beach in the United States, in the middle of summer, on a Saturday can be…well…tricky. I mean, it’s the #1 beach in the United States, so I certainly don’t blame Leila and John’s request for their engagement session at Clearwater Beach. I also certainly don’t blame every patron that enjoyed their day on the sandy white beach. I mean, I did with the family just that morning.
Just as there was no hesitation from Leila when asked if she knew where she wanted engagement session to take place, I didn’t hesitate to say a big yes. You see, there is this little area that even on crowded days can provide a little space between everyone. Plus, it’s the best place on Clearwater beach to capture multiple angles and backgrounds all in one little spot. Yep, pretty cool huh? Just wait until you see the difference in the sky depending on which direction you faced. It was an incredible transition from north to west to south, something I’ve never seen in my 22 years of Clearwater living. It was liberating to be in this spot, with these two souls that fell so naturally into each others arms.
Leila and John,
Thank you for picking Clearwater Beach and trusting my every move with exactly where to shoot. While I had been looking forward to your session for weeks, and have a confession to make. On my way to our session I saw how gloomy the sky was, my heart sank. Digging deep, I said a little prayer and asked God to throw me a bone with your session. To say He came through is the understatement of the year. You both feel into every pose so naturally and the range of sunsets we witnessed is still mind boggling to me. Enjoy these previews as your images are getting closer to closer to being ready for you!
