Sunrise Row Boat Engagement Session | Blake & John

FILED IN: Engagements, People

Blake and I went to high school together. We went on mission trips to Mexico, and my senior year we were both on homecoming court. While we each had our own friend groups, I distinctly remember that any interaction I had with Blake I always thought, “Wow, she is so cool!” Blake is genuinely kind, and so easy to talk to. She and John have been dating for 10 years! Last year while on a trip to Maine, John popped the question, and after 10 years of dating, Blake said “YES!”

I was so excited when she contacted me about photographing their wedding which will take place this December in her parents’ backyard (how cute?!), and even more excited when she said she suggesting taking engagement photos on the lake! She grew up on this stretch of water, and it was important to her to incorporate it into she and John’s engagement photos. After a few Florida summer thunderstorms caused us to reschedule, we finally met at sunrise and got the most beautiful light.

Here’s what I saw on a clear August morning on Lake Rousseau:
