A Colorful Palm Beach Engagement
On Tuesday, February 21st, I had the pleasure of capturing Jessica and Trey’s colorful Palm Beach engagement shoot on Worth Avenue. Fresh, vivid Spring flowers had just been planted in Worth Avenue when we captured their engagement session. These bright blooms brought so many gorgeous colors to their shoot!
Jessica and Trey were so much fun to work with! Andrew and I are so excited to capture their September wedding in Jupiter, Florida!
Their Love Story
Jessica and Trey met in Hawaii, though he was originally from Maryland and she was from Kansas. Trey moved to Hawaii in 2010 and in June of 2014 he started working for Ko’ Olina Golf Club. He loved that this job gave him the flexibility to go to school and play free golf at one of the nicest courses on the island.
Jessica moved to Hawaii in July of 2014. She immediately began applying for jobs but was finding it very difficult to find a job in Hawaii. After a few months of searching, she finally found one. It just so happened to be the very same golf course where Trey worked at! Jessica knew absolutely nothing about golf and had absolutely no idea what an OGS person would even do, but it was a job! On her first day, Trey came up and introduced himself. Her first thought was, “Finally! Someone close to my age who’s from the mainland!”
Jessica told me, “It wasn’t anything like love at first sight, but more like friends at first sight.” Trey ended up training Jessica and he had her laughing the whole entire time. She felt like they had been friends forever, and it wasn’t long before they started hanging out after work occasionally.
One of their first dates was on the North Shore where they took some wine down to the beach and looked at the stars. During their date and Trey said, “How incredible is it that a guy from Maryland and a girl from Kansas meet in the middle of the ocean after all of these years?” Then he kissed her for the first time and they have been together ever since.
Jessica ended up going back to Kansas in November 2015 to visit her family and friends for a week. After she got back to Hawaii they started talking about getting married. One afternoon they went to a ring shop to look and see, and he ended up ordering something that day. Jessica told him that since she knew it would be coming she wanted to be surprised once the ring was ready and have a romantic proposal.
Well…. she couldn’t wait, once she found out that he had picked up the ring she told him she didn’t really need anything super romantic. The next day he ended up getting down on one knee in their kitchen and asked her to marry him! She was so incredibly excited that it felt like she didn’t even know it was going to happen.
