Laura and Sean‘s engagement session began in downtown Pensacola at Old Hickory Whiskey Bar. Because sometimes you just need to loosen up a little bit before the main event begins!
Laura actually had a case of the nerves pop up before the session, but you’d never know it to look at these photos! These two are completely natural with one another and true love really does shine through 💯
What’s funny is that both of these wonderful people remind me of myself. Like a hybrid Melissa :) Laura is pretty type A (self-confessed), and I am the same. (I like to control the variables, which is why I run my business solo!) She admitted she had about five outfits she wanted to work with annnnnnnd about 18 different locations that spoke to her from looking through my work. And honestly I really couldn’t blame her. Pensacola is incredible!
Sean however is one of the most low-key people you’ll ever meet well equipped with fantastic humor. I know I know, it sounds like I’m talking myself up and saying I have a fantastic personality.;) But I’m truly goofy through and through, even though I’m still a control freak I can’t let other people do anything for me.
Basically what I’m saying here is Laura and Sean are my SPIRIT ANIMAL.
After drinks and a stroll in Ferdinand Square, we headed to the Historic District for location number three. Everywhere we went that day we seemed to be serenaded by live bands and DJ music. Because guess what….it was Cinco de Mayo. Now did we plan for the traffic, the crowds, the parking frustrations? Absolutely not! But we just went with the flow, enjoyed the atmosphere, and ultimately had the best time ever.
Location number four (that’s right we are onto the fourth location ) was Fort Pickens! Because honestly how can you pass up amazing architecture like that! I’m actually falling back in love with this spot very quickly as I discover brand new sights on the property. We even got a surprise flyover from the Blue Angels before we headed out to the beach!!
I’m beyond overjoyed that I already got to spend this time with them (Laura and I are planning a coffee date soon just because!). Seriously can’t wait til the wedding!
ALL the Blue Angels flew over us, but we were totally not prepared. But one of them came back and we got a quick shot of them AND the looks on Laura + Sean’s faces from the sudden burst of sound overhead!
