Carolina and Edmond met me out for an early morning session in the beautiful city of St. Augustine, Florida. The two wanted a downtown feel to their shoot in gorgeous little town. My sweet couple actually met while Carolina was a waitress and finishing up her nursing degree. Edmond had come into the little shop where she worked at the time and was immediately entranced. Crossing paths, he stopped immediately in his tracks, and asked if Carolina would “go out and get some coffee” with him. Carolina’s busy school schedule really didn’t allow much of a personal life, and she inadvertently played hard to get over the next few months as Edmond pursued her. During her last semester with school coming to a close, she finally accepted his date night proposal that started off with one cup of coffee leading to many, many more over their four hours of chatting. As Carolina puts it, “Ever since then we have been inseparable.”
When asking my darlings’ about what they love most about one another, the two love how caring one another are and their sense of humor. Carolina loves how protected she feels both emotionally inside and outside with Edmond by her side.
On March 25th of 2015, what Carolina thought would be a simple Monday afternoon led to so a big surprise. After coming home from a long day, Carolina was in their bedroom when Edmond called her out to the living room. As she walked out, he took the ring out of his pocket and dropped down to one knee and told Carolina, “I love you so much and thank you for being here for me.” With that he asked for her hand in marriage and through the tears of joy, Carolina said, “yes!”
What I love about how special Carolina and Edmond’s love is, is that time truly has no limits. Edmond fell in love with Carolina from the moment he saw her and knew she was the one for him. While Carolina might have just needed a little more time with putting her studies first, she finally did accept that one fateful date, which led to so many more. Reading their story, I was in absolute tears of seeing how the pursuit of happiness truly wins out in the end.
I truly cannot wait to capture my sweet couple’s special day at Treasury on the Plaza this November.
On another note, I want to share the kind words Carolina wrote to me after our session, “Thank you so much for working with us during our engagement photo shoot. It felt so magical, I’ve always dreamt of that day. You made it even better with your sweet personality and your wonderful advice for poses. Thank you again. I can’t wait to have you taking amazing pictures during our wedding.” -Carolina
