Dania & David's Engagement Session In Lake Sumter

Dania and David are both past clients, so when we received the news that they were engaged, we were SO excited for them!  Both sweet-but-sassy spirited people, we knew that this engagement session would be extra fun.

Our couple chose the adorably quaint Lake Sumter Landing as the backdrop for their portraits, knowing it would provide an excellent variety in a relatively compact space.  Full of vintage, small-town charm, this pocket of shops and restaurants nestled up beside a body of water for a touch of a shore town feel as well.

It was an unreasonably chilly, gusty, and wet March afternoon, so it was only fitting that Dania had a blanket wrapped around her bare shoulders when she and David first approached us.  Once we got down to the business of shooting, though, things heated up quick with a mixture of cozy and action-packed interactions, the liveliest of which were Dania and David’s spontaneous dance parties made possible by the live bands playing in the town square.  This happened on multiple occasions, typically without warning, so it kept us on our toes on location and made for some highly entertaining “outtakes” during the image selection process later.

These two had us cracking up throughout most of their session, and it was the perfect way to reunite with two friends!

Dania and David are such bright, vivacious people.  Between Dania’s dry sense of humor and David’s quirky antics, they are such a special couple.  Even though they provided their fair share of comic relief, make no mistake that this couple still had an intense, palpable connection during the more serious and intimate moments we asked them to share. 

We are so happy for these two, and even though we’re bummed we can’t attend their destination elopement in Jamaica this summer, we are confident that this will be an amazing start to their lives as husband and wife.  Congratulations to this one-of-a-kind couple!
