Sierra & Daniel's Stylish Downtown Orlando Engagement

In preparation for their engagement session, we exchanged countless texts with our bride-to-be, Sierra, meticulously discussing matching prints, color schemes, and clothing styles in order to compose the ideal wardrobe combinations for her and her fiancé, Daniel.  

And boy did it pay off!

While we pride ourselves on having some of the best dressed couples in Florida (who all take our mood boards VERY seriously), there was just something extra special about the way that these finished looks came together with our photographic vision to create some seriously stylish final images.  Thanks to Sierra’s unceasing quest for the perfectly paired looks, she and Daniel take the cake for the “Outfits That Match Impeccably to Location” award.  This is a thing that did not exist until after capturing their edgy, sassy, and editorial portraits!

We photographed Sierra and Daniel in Downtown Orlando, strategically placed near Lake Eola in order to provide a blend of Urban vibes and scenic greenery.  Their first look paired perfectly with the industrial backdrops of colorful brick buildings and grand architecture of the area.  Though we had not chosen any specific locations before their shoot, it was as if our couple had stolen the blueprint of the city far in advance so that they could compliment it seamlessly!  It did not take them long to warm up to the idea of being the center of attention that afternoon, and in no time they were serving us some serious attitude in their poses…And we were living for it!

For their second look strolling lakeside, they elevated their style to chic Date Night status, where we captured a mix of romantic courtship moments as well as some sultry, serious poses  amidst the expertly landscaped florals of the park.  Not only were these two naturals in front of the camera, their ease with one another shone through to create some genuinely intimate and special moments.

We knew before even meeting Sierra and Daniel that the chances of us all getting along were high, since they were sent to us by our friends Jordan and Casey.  But to be able to call yet another couple friends, as well as members of the McNeile Family:  This is something that brought us so much joy!  We had a blast tearing up the town with Sierra and Daniel, and we have no doubt that there is so much more fierceness where that came from in store for their wedding this
