Finally!!! After 4 months of anxiously awaiting our Engagement Photos we have the glorious CD with rights...IN HAND!
I did a post with a preview to our photos back in February, and you have probably seen our Official Save the Date Photo post as well, but I couldn't be MORE EXCITED to show you more of our photoshoot we did back in January!
When Mr. Hess and I were looking for our Wedding Day photographer, we knew we wanted someone who could do a great mix of romantic, contemporary, and journalisitc photos. We searched for a while online for Orlando photographers, asked friends who have gotten married, and even read tons of wedding blogs and reviews to find who and what company would represent our style the best. After seeing how our Engagement Photoshoot or "E-session" turned out, I know we are in great hands for the BIG DAY!

The company we hired is called Elegant Imagery, and our photographer's name is Victoria. We saw them at a Bridal Show last October, and fell in love with the bright and artistic type of photos displayed at their booth. So we talked to a few different companies, and kept going back to EI and a few weeks later, we hired them! The day of the shoot, Victoria's dad even showed up to help get different angles of photos, as well as help brainstorm to get exactly what we wanted! This was a pleasant surprise, and both were such a joy to work with that day. So far, I would recommend them to any bride and you can click below to find their website & blog:
So without further aideu, here are the highlights of our Engagement Photoshoot! There were a total of 68 pictures, but these are most of my favorites. We started off the day in the private area of one of our favorite restaurants, Civeche in downtown Orlando. I loved how these turned out and especially loved the eye and vision our photographer had here! After the resaurant, we moved to the rail road tracks at Church Street Station and I loved how these turned out as well!

After this, Mr. Hess found an amazing grafitti wall that he said changes almost weekly from local artists or grafitti goers, if you will. The work is actually pretty detailed and everytime we drive by we are very surprised on how often it changes! It just so happens that during this time we found a perfect spot that also displayed something to represent the Orlando Magic - an organization that means a lot to us!
Now, I said the Orlando Magic was important to us right?! Well one might say the sports team and organization plays a HUGE role in our lives... because that's how we met! So you probably won't be surprised to find out our final two locations for the day: the rooftop of the Amway Center and then on the actual Magic Court! 10,000 brownie points to Mr. Hess for getting us VIP access to these areas...love you buddy! :)
AND...THERE THEY ARE!!!! I am SO happy with how they turned out and I think our photographer hit the nail on the head with capturing our fun and contemporary style. We are planning to incorporate these into our BIG DAY, so keep a look out! :)
103 days until our next SHOOT! <3
Until Next Time,
