Jackie + Greg Engagement Sneak Peak

Hi again! I know, you're asking yourself, is this real? Is she actually posting twice in a month?  Well, yep! It is still January and I have 11 more months to lag behind on posting but switching sneak peaks over to the blog will definitely help me post more.

Meet Jackie and Greg! A fun loving and adventurous couple who are getting married at The Key West Botanical Gardens this coming April.  

I LOVE my clients, all of them, and it is always a complete honor to be chosen as someone's Wedding Photographer, ALWAYS.

However, it is an extra special feeling when locals, people who undoubtedly know some of the other 55 listed local photographers, choose ME  to capture the love they share. I couldn't be more excited to be tasked with visually telling the story of Jackie and Greg's wedding day and for this post, their Engagement portraits!!!

We met early on a Sunday morning this past December and had more than a few laughs.

Jackie and Greg are "Fresh Water Conchs" (pronounced "Konk") which means they've lived here for more than 7 years and are most definitely considered locals.   They love the flair of Key West and wanted to do more "tourist" type locations. BO's Fish wagon was a great starting place because Greg had a pick up like this one growing up.   Jackie and Greg's Engagement Portrait SessionJackie and Greg's Engagement portrait Session with Key West wedding photographer Mary Veal at BO's Fish Wagon on Caroline Street in Key West.

It was early and the crowd had not descended upon Duval Street yet so we did a mini tour of Duval and Green Streets with Sloppy Joe's Bar, Captain Tony's Bar, a couple of real (and delicious) Bloody Mary's and a kiss on the corner before we were off to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park for more kisses, a little dancing and lots of romantic hand holding.  Jackie and Greg Key West Engagement SessionJackie and Greg's Engagement portrait Session with Key West wedding photographer Mary Veal at BO's Fish Wagon on Caroline Street in Key West.

Of course no tourist type session is complete without the quintessential Key West Post Card shot in front of The Cuban Coffee Queen!

For those of you that know Jackie and Greg, you'll appreciate the strategic placement with them beneath the scuba diver. I was undecided which orientation I liked better. Which one do you prefer?

Jackie, Greg, you both are amazing individuals and I can't thank you enough for putting your confidence in my talent. I look forward to your wedding in April with great anticipation!!!
