It never fails, when a bride-to-be finds out I’m a wedding blogger they automatically ask me for advice. They want to know everything there is to know about planning weddings like stylish little sponges. Two of the first words of wisdom to ever leave my mouth after such a conversation is one, to make sure to love your photographer and two, to make sure you do an engagement session. Because they not only give you beautiful images to treasure forever, the session will also allow you to get comfy in front of the camera. Just like this couple captured by Ariel Rose Photography - they might have gone in a bit on the nervous side, but from the looks at this gallery you’d never know it. See it all here.

The first time I met this sweet couple at a coffee shop in Jacksonville I knew I was going to have a good time with them. They both immediately proclaimed themselves camera shy and were quite nervous about an engagement session. On the day of their shoot, with just a quick ride down to St. Augustine, any onlooker would have seen these two working the camera, whether they knew it or not. Christina was much more nervous than Barret. It was so sweet to see him calm and sooth her when the camera came too close. He would quickly make her laugh and she would relax instantly. Not a single photograph showed her nervousness.

WIth this job you meet a lot of couples. Without a doubt I can say this couple has “it”. They have that spark that every girl wants and that fun loving dynamic that every guy needs. Needless to say I am beyond excited for their wedding day!
