SARAH + JONATHAN | ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA

August 16, 2017

My husband and I recently relocated to the wonderful city of Chicago, and we L.O.V.E. it. Florida wasn’t for us and we adore being in a big city. Being right in the middle of things, with a view of downtown Chicago right out of our window. Listening to the hussle and bussle, watching people live their lives. There’s a connection you get (oddly) that we never had back in Florida.

However, I recently got to go back to South Florida for Sarah & Jonathan’s wedding, and we ended up doing their bridal session on this gorgeous Fort Lauderdale beach. It was sunny, and hot, and we were all dying to jump in the ocean!! I don’t often miss the state I called home for 20 years, but goodness this is beautiful! The bright blue sky, the crystal clear ocean, the sound of the waves, the feeling of sand beneath your toes… So ok, I miss it sometimes lol. It might be time to visit my mom lol.
