These two look absolutely gorgeous in these shots. Thankfully, this Georgia winter day was very mild and perfect for an engagement session! Melody choosing this striking blue dress was a perfect compliment to the greenery behind them. Jekyll Island Club Resort is an amazing location for photos because of the versatility of the scenery and proximity to the ocean.
This section of the resort is dotted with beautiful historical homes. During the holidays, the homes are adorned with Christmas lights and wreaths, making it feel like a cozy small town. This creates such a magical scene for photographs!
The amount of greenery and trees with hanging moss create a great neutral background. I love how it looks as though Melody and Brent are practically popping out of the photo! Them and their love is the star of the show for this session, and they look fantastic!
In this day and age, couples meeting through dating websites and apps is definitely not unheard of. I think it is amazing how many ways there are now to find your soulmate! Melody and Brent met on the dating app, Hinge, which made it so much easier to connect during the difficult time of the COVID-19 lockdowns and busy work schedules. Both Melody and Brent work in healthcare, so the past few years have been a crazy rollercoaster.
These two share a love for many different activities and hobbies. Over their first FaceTime call, they bonded immediately over their love and passion for music. On their first date, they hopped between a few Jacksonville Beach restaurants and finished up their night by enjoying tequila and delicious tacos from Flying Iguana. After that day, the couple was inseparable!
When asked how they knew each other was the one, Melody stated that as soon as they met, Brent just felt like home to her. Everything was more fun and special because they experienced it together. Finding your soulmate is so beautiful and these two are the sweetest couple!
I love the greenery laced arches in the courtyard of the Crane Cottage, one of the many wedding venues Jekyll Island Club Resort offers. They make for such a stunning background!
Melody and Brent were so great at posing and making the photos look natural! I love their genuine smiles and gestures. Melody’s smile is shining so bright, and they both look so happy! Engagement sessions are for you to display your love and excitement for one another during this season of your life. Capturing the last few months before a couple becomes husband and wife is so important!
Something amazing about choosing Jekyll Island, Georgia for your photography session is the variety of scenery it gives you. Just 15 minutes away from the Jekyll Island Club Resort is a beautiful black rock and driftwood beach. The rocks add texture and separate the sand and ocean, so your pictures still have movement in the background.
Melody and Brent knew what wardrobe was needed for the second half of our session at the beach. A long, flowing, neutral colored dress and light colored linen allow the photos to stay light and airy, while also making your skin and hair pop!
I adore candid photos with a lot of movement, but the stand-still moment of Melody and Brent with their noses touching is so romantic and gorgeous. Their love is so clearly portrayed in these images.
Capturing your happiness and joy during this season is what I do best! Photos like this start as carefree, silly moments of twirling, dancing, and whispering in each other’s ear. What comes out of it is amazing, natural photos of the couple just being themselves.
Photographing Melody and Brent was such a pleasure! Wishing love and happiness to these two in the coming days!
