Downtown Stuart Engagement

Kelly & David’s Downtown Stuart Engagement

Kelly and David are the sweethearts that movies are made of. My adorable couple lives down south in Coral Springs, but met me half way in Stuart this past weekend while I was volunteering for an impromptu engagement session in the heart of downtown.

Downtown Stuart is filled with the sweetest little shops, quaint coffee houses, and centered around Memorial Park where we met. The grand gazebo lent perfectly for adorable spinning photos of Kelly as she gently went into the arms of her hubby to be.

Kelly and David have a very interesting (and super funny) story of how they met – all of which was because of Anchorman! A few years back, David had created a parody Ron Burgundy Facebook page as a tribute to his love of the comedian. Due to everyone in Coral Springs friending the pseudo Ron, Kelly came across the page and liked it as well. David (sorry I mean Ron) would periodically post funny quotes to Kelly’s Facebook page and over time they began to chat up a conversation after he unveiled the comedian behind the mask. Conversations led into dates, which led into a beautiful, flourishing relationship.

As you expected, Kelly loves how silly David is and always has her smiling and laughing. She loves his positivity and how he truly brings out the best in her. David couldn’t have said it better when chatting about how Kelly makes him “a better man” and how she is the smartest, funniest, and sweetest person he has ever met.

After four years of dating and know Kelly was his soulmate, David planned a special trip up north to the one and only city of lights, New York City! Their getaway was truly magical and filled with so much love. From our photos, you may have noticed a special little trinket both Kelly and David wore from the movie up. As you guessed it, Kelly is a huge fan of all things love and Disney movies. She had always wanted to go on a magical horse and carriage ride, which David surprised her with! As they were strolling through the iconic Central Park, he turned to his beloved and asked for her hand in marriage. This Cinderella didn’t have to leave a glass slipper behind for her prince to find her!

Looking forward to capturing the magical wedding of my sweet couple next year at the Lake Mary Events Center!

  10. Downtown Stuart Florida served as the perfect backdrop to Kelly and David’s engagement session. I especially love the variety of scenes you were able to shoot, from lush greenery to rustic architecture, all within the same location. Some of my favorite shots were of this couple nuzzled in close and the “almost kiss!”

  11. Samantha, these engagement photos are just wow. That location is just as stunning as this newly engaged couple. The connection between these already has been dreaming of how beautiful they will look on their wedding day. I will be on the look out for that next blog. The photographs of her spinning into her husbands arms are what every girl dreams of when they think of there fairy tale husband. Congratulations to these two I am so excited to see what you capture in their future!
