Park Ave CDs Record Shop Engagement

Kellie & Austin’s Record Shop Engagement

Kellie and Austin met me out at Park Ave CDs for a retro, music inspired engagement session this past week. Three of their absolute favorite things are music, candy, and of course one another. I knew that when planning the shoot, I had to incorporate these three passions all in one lovely package to be able to deliver on their vision.

After searching and calling many music shops, Park Ave CDs kindly opened their doors to a neat session. From records of new and old music to CDs, the shop is truly the coolest little spot to listen to music in Winter Park. I loved how their records poured out of the aisles in bins, baskets, and tables begging for customers to take a moment and enjoy the sound.

Austin is actually an avid guitar player and music connoisseur. He loved the shop as soon as we walked in and his darling Kellie was excited to see the one other surpise I had in my camera bag. Before heading to the shoot, I stopped over at Rocket Fizz to grab bubble gum and lollipops. It was the perfect little add in for our shoot. As we walked around the shop blowing bubbles and listening to music, the two told me about how they met and what they loved about one another.

The two actually met back in Halloween of 2013 through mutual friends. Little did they realize at first how many times their paths had crossed in the past, but didn’t realize it. From their moms going to the same high school, to a big ski group both traveled on, their journey through life had overlapped on multiple occasions without realizing it.

After dating for a few years, Austin just new that Kellie was “the one.” On the day before Halloween, Austin asked Kellie to join him in Saint Augustine for a day spent with friends. The two met up at the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument in the heart of downtown Saint Augustine, Florida, right on the water. Austin grabbed Kellie’s hand as soon as he saw her arrive and walked her up to the beautiful, historic structure. Right in that historic spot, Austin asked for Kellie’s hand in marriage. Of course she said yes and the rest is history!

Looking forward to capturing these two tie the knot at Sweet Pete’s Candy Shop!
