Sometimes we plan and God laughs. And guess what? It turns out even better than we hoped. Like this adorable duo who planned to have their e-session shot in a canoe on the St. John’s River. But thanks to some rough waters, they had to settle for a little 50′s inspired, oh so sexy goodness in the gardens and the result? Was all. out. romance. Click here for more from Flora + Fauna.

Jade & Ben knew they wanted a canoe for their engagement session. After weeks and weeks of searching for the perfect canoe, they finally found one. On the day of their shoot, we launched the canoe into the Saint John’s River. Only to find out, the water was too rough! We turned foiled plans into amazing photos. …And I’m actually pretty happy the water was too rough because I adore these photos!¬†Oh, and they brought along their adorably pudgy English Bulldog. I fell in love at first sight!
