They wanted something cozy, something that reflected who they are and what they are as a couple. When Ashley and Julio chose their brand new house in Port Saint Lucie, FL as the location for their photo shoot, I was so excited. I knew that it was going to be romantic, I knew they would feel so much more comfortable in their house and I knew that the shoot would come out "cozy" just as they wanted. We had so much fun working together, and I loved being able to catch two big moments in their life, their engagement, and the purchase of their new home. Julio proposed to her on a vacation to Italy. They originally went to Italy to attend a wedding for a family friend of theirs, towards the end of the vacation, on their last day in Italy, they went sight seeing. As she was turned around taking in the beauty of Italy, he dropped down on one knee to propose to her. When she noticed that Julio wasn't next to her, she turned around looking for him, and when she did, she saw her guy on one knee with a gorgeous ring in hand.
It was such an honor to capture these two at such a wonderful time in their lives. These people are near and dear to my heart and I am so lucky I get to see love stories like these unfold before me.
