An adventurous & romantic engagement session at the historic Bethesda by the Sea and the Palm Beach Lake Trail
On Saturday, June 18th, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Amy and Alan’s Palm Beach Lake Trail Engagement shoot! This engagement shoot was an adventure. I have never captured an engagement shoot quite like this one. Not only are Amy and Alan absolutely adorable but they were also genuine and kind.
Amy and Alan were a pleasure to work with! They were easy going and so much fun! We began our session at the Church of Bethesda by the Sea for some romantic shots. Then the next part of our session was a two-hour bike ride along the Palm Beach Lake Trail! We stopped along the way capturing sweet moments in some of Palm Beach’s most historic areas. Riding bikes along this bike trail is an activity that Amy and Alan love doing together so it was appropriate that we did just that for their engagement photos!
The love story
Alan and Amy met just over 10 years ago, they were both in the yachting industry and became close friends. They lost touch over the years but in June of 2013, they ran into each other again at a networking event. Amy remembers how excited she was to see him. Amy told Alan that she would love to be friends with him again. Alan had recently been through a divorce so they stayed friends for many months and then their friendship blossomed into a relationship.
Amy and Alan have been dating now for two and a half years. Alan is very much a traditionalist, so Amy had to get used to him opening doors for her each and every single time, not just on special dates. He was also the first man who actually asked her to be his girlfriend. They both work very hard but when they aren’t working they enjoy simply spending time together. They’ve done the Palm Beach bike trail many times as a date and it’s one of their favorite things to do.
Alan and Amy, thank you for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of capturing your engagement photos! It was so wonderful meeting and working with you both! Best wishes!
My favorite ring shot to date! One of my favorites!
