engament photos at the House of Refuge

The House of Refuge Engagement Session

Taking engagement photos on the beach is one of the most beautiful ways to capture this exciting time in your life! This gallery of beach engagement photos was photographed at the House of Refuge in Stuart.

This lovely couple is one of the sweetest, kindest, smartest, and most fantastically photogenic couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. They are celebrating their engagement and I was there to witness their love story.

There’s an old quote about photography that says, “I don’t shoot what it looks like, I shoot what it feels like.” And I increasingly find this to be true. Photography allows me to truly connect to the artistry and beauty of the moments & nature.  I want to show my couples how beautiful their love is.
