I love these images. I love that Emily and Jesse chose me, out of a handful of potential candidates, to fly down to Florida to shoot this magical day. I love that when I look at these photos, I can still feel the ocean breeze on my skin and the sand between my toes. I love that the weather was beyond perfect and that the love flowed so smoothly and freely and fluidly that day. I love the clean, crisp, beach light and the way it falls so beautifully on Emily and Jesse’s faces. I love that the sunset was just right and that the water was lukewarm. I love that Emily and Jesse allowed themselves to get wrapped up in the beauty of the moment and, despite the beach being packed with people, Jesse swept Emily right off her feet and carried her into the shallow surf. I love that this day went off without a hitch, ending with sweet kisses under the light of a sparkler farewell.
