New Smyrna Dunes Beach Engagement

Kelsey & Alex’s Pastel Morning Sunrise Beach Engagement at New Smyrna Dunes Park

Round number two for Kelsey and Alex! The two had wanted a rustic engagement session and a beach engagement session to celebrate their love of the great outdoors across Florida. Their first engagement session took place at the gorgeous Highland Manor Apopka in Apopka, Florida. It was the perfect spot for a rustic feel against their quaint, little chapel. Check out the photos from their first session by clicking here.

New Smyrna Beach, Florida is very special to the two, as it is where Alex proposed! One night during their stay at Kelsey’s family’s condo in New Smyrna Beach, her dad started to play music out of nowhere. Kelsey was incredibly confused as they were all about to head out to get dinner and he needed to be getting ready. He turned on “Give It All We Got Tonight” by George Strait, which was Kelsey and Alex’s song. When she came into the room, a banner came down from the blinds that said, “Kelsey, Will You Marry Me?” Alex popped down on one knee in front of her family and asked her the big question. Kelsey of course said yes and couldn’t wait to share their song for the rest of their lives with one another.

Looking forward to capturing their big day at Timacuan Golf Club!

Venue: New Smyrna Dunes Park

  3. Gorgeas beach engagement photos! You definitely captured their love for each other very well! My favorites are the silhouette images. To me, they look like fine art images!

  4. Omg!! I just love everything about this session!! This is such a romantic engagement location and Corner House Photography did such a amazing job capturing this special time for these two love birds!

  5. Wow! Everything about this beach engagement session is incredible! The fog, the sunset, the light, the couple and their outfit choices…just incredible! I so wish I had a beach like New Smyrna Beach Dunes to use!

  6. I think everyone should have two engagement photo shoots! I mean really it’s a chance to get twice the snuggles from your fiance, right?! Thank you for linking the first part of this post to this blog, it was nice to look back at their previous session. I think my favorite is this New Smyrna Beach, Florida location. The sunset and beach scenery combined with lots of love and affection equals one great photo shoot.

  7. Wow what a beautiful place New Smyrna Beach is for an engagement session! I love the fog at sunset gave it a totally different feel. Great job.

  8. New Smyrna Beach, Florida is the most beautiful location for an engagement session. The couple looks so in love during their beach session.

  9. I love this couple’s beachy engagement session! You did such an awesome job with their portraits. I love the moodiness with the fog – so lovely! I can’t wait to see how you capture their big day! Great work!

  10. Holy Moly! That black and white one of them kissing on the rocks…stopped me dead in my tracks. If I were them, I’d had that sucker blown up on a humongous canvas for my wall! I love this entire gallery. You had me from the first shot to the last. This couple knows how to rock an engagement session (pun intended, hehe)! Every couple in New Smyrna Beach, FL is going to want an awesome portrait session with you now.

  11. Wow, Samantha! These engagement photos are STUNNING! Every angle, the wide open sky kissing wet sand, the texture of Kelsey’s gown against the rocks. I had no idea Dunes Park, New Smyrna Beach existed; what a shame to have missed this magical spot. And what a SWEET engagement story you tell — well done Alex!
