As a Panama City engagement photographer, I am used to most of my portrait sessions being at the beach.
When Abbie and Bubba told me they didn’t want to do a beach session, I was excited.
I love mixing it up and challenging myself.
Abbie + Bubba are getting married next year at Rosie Creek Farms in Panama City, Florida.
Bubba and Abbie’s engagement session was straight up magical.
We took their portraits at Bubba’s friend’s property in Youngstown, Florida which is right outside Panama City.
They usually go dove hunting at this property, but today we used it as a backdrop for their engagement portraits.
We met to catch the gorgeous sunrise, and man was it 100% worth it.
The property has so many different things every direction you turn.
It has a few lily covered ponds.
It has a gorgeous corrugated metal barn, plenty of wild flowers and tons of big spiders.
Abbie picked some of the gorgeous mustard colored flowers and we used them in some of the portraits.
Bubba even walked into this sketchy field to pick us more.
He was the real MVP.
Abbie and Bubba set up a tailgate picnic in the bed of Bubba’s big truck.
Before they got into the bed of the truck, Bubba picked Abbie up and dunked her feet in the yeti so she woudn’t have dirty feet.
I was dying laughing.
I surprised them with the cutest sign for their wedding next year.
Cypress and Whim is the shop who created their gorgeous hand painted sign.
We had the best morning together.
I am beyond stoked for their amazing wedding next year.
I know it’s going to just straight up rock.
Their engagement session could not have been more perfect.
They laughed and cuddled the entire session and just enjoyed life.
We caught the most gorgeous Florida sunrise and spent the morning laughing watching out for spiders and having the best morning.
Does it get better than that?
