The best part about getting to shoot engagement sessions and weddings is getting to know the couple. My favorite question to ask is “how did you two meet?”.
Ustina contacted me from Sydney, Australia! Isn’t the internet a wonderful thing? That we can connect with people on the other side of the world?!
Ustina and her fiancé met in Australia while Mena was visiting on "“holiday” from Florida. However, both were born in Egypt. From there, his family moved to the US, and Ustina’s family to Australia. 25 years later, they ended up back in the same place and today they are engaged to be married! Doesn’t that just make you believe in fate?!
We had the best time getting to know each other as we shot pictures, giggled and paraded around Downtown Winter Garden (my hometown). Neither had ever been but were loving every corner of Downtown Winter Garden. It really is the cutest little city.
We ended our session in the dreamiest field. We listened to some romantic tunes and let them ca-noodle, cuddle, kiss and dance in that field to their hearts content! Im so glad I got to meet this duo and play a part in their story.
