Planning the Magic
Today we’ll be talking about one of my favorite beaches for photo sessions! These Golden Gardens Beach Engagement Photos are from one of my favorite engagement sessions from 2021! Gloria and Rory are both Cornell University Alumni who recently celebrated two major milestones this year. In addition to graduating from Cornell University with her Master’s in Fine Arts this Spring, they just got engaged!
You won’t believe the story of how I connected with this amazing couple earlier this year for their engagement session! We chatted about everything from wardrobe to location, and let me tell you, these two know how to plan a photoshoot! To ensure everything went perfectly, I offer a planning consultation for every session I shoot, and we went through everything in detail. The happiness in their voices was contagious, and I couldn’t wait to meet them! After some virtual planning, we narrowed down the perfect location – Golden Gardens Beach Park. Let me just say, this choice was spot on. With its stunning landscape, almost-white sand, and fun-loving beach volleyball crowd, it was the perfect backdrop for their session!
Get ready to be blown away because this wedding is going to be an exotic adventure! I just heard from the couple that they won’t be worrying about any planning headaches because their parents are taking care of it all. And the cherry on top? This spectacular event is happening in Tanzania! I don’t know about you, but I am super envious of anyone who gets to witness such a breathtaking location firsthand. Even though I won’t be able to capture the magic through my camera lens, I can already picture it in my mind, and it is simply stunning!
An Elegant Session On the Beach
Can you even imagine looking flawless in 100+ degree weather? Well, Rory and Gloria completely crushed it, both sporting outfits that could make anyone weak in the knees. They strutted their stuff in a flowy pink chiffon maxi dress and a sleek navy suit like it was nothing! And let’s not forget, they weren’t just standing around looking pretty. They were also smashing it at board games and sipping champagne like true champions. Even the sweltering heat couldn’t stop them from having the time of their lives. And, boy, did they make the most out of their time together. They enjoyed the beautiful scenery, embraced the challenge, and gave us some breathtaking photos that would make anyone swoon. Truly, Rory and Gloria are a force to be reckoned with!Check out this stunning session and learn more about Gloria and Rory. It was recently featured in BlackBride.com and Beach Bride!
