Abby & Jose’s Big Talbot Island Engagement session was one to remember. These two love birds met in the Navy while being stationed together at the same command. One afternoon Jose was playing a game in a corner. He noticed Abby gazing towards him while chatting with her friends and built the bravery to go for it. Flashing forward to the proposal they were in New York City for the commissioning of Jose’s ship. They has just gone to a fancy dinner with Navy friends and both wearing their dress whites uniforms. After the dinner Abby was ready to head back to the hotel to change out of their uniform. However Jose had other plans.
Jose wanted to walk and explore time square . They strolled through time square . Jose stopped by a group of people doing flips who were showing their talent on the streets of NYC. A few random tourist began to ask if they could take photos with them in their uniform. Jose took this opportunity & asked if they could record them. He quickly got on one knee & popped the question ! Abby was so surprised & excitedly said YES ! They quickly became surrounded by people celebrating them. I can just hear the commotion , honking cars & joyful laughter during this moment.
I met Abby & Jose through the Premier Bride Expo . In fact they found me through the Premier bride magazine . They were excited to connect in person. Shortly after we consulted we began planning their engagement session. Big Talbot was high on her list. Going to this hidden gem full of driftwood and adventurous opportunities became a no brainer.
Commencing the session it began to pour ! Florida being the “Sunshine state” it is decided to show out. This did not stop Abby & Jose. Our first stop was at a fishing bridge. It was raining so hard , as a result gave a waterfall effect. Making their session unique as the only waterfall you find in Florida would come from a downpour and a bridge.
Heading towards Big Talbot Island we grabbed little moments along the trail. Abby & Jose talked a little more about what is important to them as a couple, their story and cultures. We made sure to grab a photo of Abby holding an abanico to reflect Jose’s Hispanic heritage.
Arriving to Driftwood beach was well worth the .08 mile hike. it began to drizzle again and shortly after just as Abby has called earlier “Maybe we will get a rainbow” they got not one but 3.
heading over to black rock beach was short visited since the tiny critter friends had taken over after the rain. Here are a few things I recommend when planning your session at Big Talbot Island.

We had to end their session parking Abbys Jeep by the Marsh and showing off her fun duckies which added so much more personality to their session
