Best Day Ever | An Orange Orchard Engagement

Boy do I have something amaaaaazing to show all of you today! During each years wedding travels I see so much beauty that I want to share with all of you, and high on the list of ‘beautiful places’ are the orange orchards of Patensie. Rebecca from Runaway Romance and I chatted about collaborating for a super fun engagement shoot and ‘The Best Day Ever’ shoot was born.


More than just a cute name, ‘The Best Day Ever’ has become the way that each of us remember the day. It wasn’t just a styled shoot… we created magic (and had so much fun doing it)!!! Courtney and Angelo were the superstars of the shoot and they are 100% head-over-heels in love with each other which made our job 100% easier ūüôā


I really want to thank all of the amazing collaborators who took up the challenge and helped us fill your screens with so much beauty!
