Kaitlyn and Eric were our first-ever sunrise engagement shoot on the beach. Crazy! I loved the pinky-purply natural light, how empty Cocoa Beach was, and Kaitlyn and Eric totally made waking up at 5:30am worth it. :)

When we work with a blank canvas location like the beach, we really depend on our clients. I mean, we can set up poses, of course, but sessions like this thrive on naturally playful couples. We struck gold with Kaitlyn and Eric’s session. I started the shoot just saying,  “We’d love if you guys could play around in the water,” and Nate quickly captured my favorite photo of the day. :)

This light!!! Morning sessions may be my new favorite. :)

I love natural face-snugglers. :)

Gotta love early morning metal detectors…

They were so fun to shoot and reminded me of a modern-day Kelly Kapowski and Slater. ;)

Kaitlyn and Eric, thank you for making the session a breeze! Can’t wait til the big day. :)

Kaitlyn and Eric met us bright and early at Cocoa Beach for their engagement session. :)

They are, quite possibly, the easiest couple we’ve ever photographed! We’d set them up in good light and they would just run with it. So ridiculously spontaneous and romantic, I could shoot these two any day. :)

See what I mean? :)

We love you guys!! Enjoy! :)
