Cypress Grove Estate House Engagement

Nicole & Andy’s Cypress Grove Estate House Engagement

Cypress Grove Estate House at Cypress Grove Park set the scene for Nicole and Andy’s engagement session. Situated on an 80-acre estate, the southern elegance and charm captures the beauty of Florida. Large oaks grace entrance leading to the home while perfectly manicured lawns back up to the cusp of Lake Jessamine. As you can tell, the beauty of the property is just perfect for capturing the beauty of love.

Andy and Nicole met in Fort Lauderdale while in PA school in January of 2013. After just three short weeks into their first semester, they had their first date and have been inseparable ever since. As Nicole put it, “juggling a relationship and academics was pretty easy being that we just studied together all the time!” Their demeanor around one another just clicks and you can sense that they just understand one another without even having to say a word.

Andy knew all along that Nicole was his soul mate and about a year after they began dating he was ready to pop the question. The creative artist he is, Andy arranged for a date at Painting with a Twist. Nicole didn’t know that Andy was planning on painting more than just a canvas, but their beginning of their lives as one. At the end of the painting session, the teacher asked for Andy to bring up his painting and feature it to the class. She had wanted to show the other artists what their paintings will look like framed in their homes, but it was all a hoax! What Nicole didn’t realize was that Andy had painted “will you marry me” on the canvas. Andy handed the painting over to the teacher and while she held it up, Andy dropped to one knee and asked Nicole to marry him.

The painting now hangs on their bedroom wall next to photos captured of that very special moment captured by Nicole’s friends. Looking forward to capturing Nicole and Andy’s big day at the Park Plaza Gardens this August!

  4. Samantha, you were hands down the most fun and easygoing photographer to work with!! You gave instructions on how to pose but still allowed us to maneuver naturally; it was the perfect amount of give and take. You really captured our romantic energy and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking!! The fact that you got so many wonderful shots with how HUMID it was outside is just beyond me. I would 100% love to work with you again, even after you shoot our wedding!! I can’t wait to see the beautiful pics you capture for our special day. You are a dream!!!
