If you’re in North Georgia, you may be surprised that you don’t have to travel all the way to Florida for picturesque views and coastal charm. Take a quick detour before you cross the Florida-Georgia line and you’ll find yourself in a little slice of heaven called St. Simons Island. Ashley and Brandon celebrated their recent engagement with the loveliest Christmas tree farm and St. Simons Island engagement session. Not only are they the picture-perfect couple, but they chose the picture perfect location. You’re going to swoon at their gorgeous portraits among the oak trees delicately dripping with moss. I think I can officially now say that I love St. Simons Island almost as much as I love Savannah and Charleston. Can you say engagement session goals?
We started off Ashley and Brandon’s engagement session with a pit stop at his family’s Christmas tree farm in Darien, Georgia where they will be tying the knot in October. We then made the drive down to St. Simons Island, and it did not disappoint! We walked among the oak trees and brick paths into the sunset along the water. Talk about romantic!
I’m not ashamed to say that I got lost in this gallery when I was editing and choosing photos to share with you all in this blog post. From the way that Brandon looked at Ashley to the way she smiled, it was like I wasn’t even there. There was something about the huge oak trees dripping with moss all around them that made so much of this session so sweet and intimate in feeling. I love how real and intimate Ashley and Brandon were as they weren’t afraid to get cozy in front of the camera. Their portraits are definitely among some of my favorites!
Ashley and Brandon, I absolutely loved getting to help you celebrate your recent engagement with your darling engagement session. I hope you cherish these memories and moments leading up to your big day, and I hope these photographs make you even more excited for the journey of life that you two are about to embark on. You two have been such a pleasure to get to know, and I can’t wait to take the trip back to his family’s Christmas tree farm for your October fall wedding. With all the love that radiated from you during your engagement session, I can’t even imagine how stunning your wedding portraits will be! I’m preparing my heart to melt this fall. See you at the altar, Ashley and Brandon!
